Not quite high enough on thief yet to use this, but isn't a thief's main function between SA's and TA's to simply build TP? And perhaps hit it with a few status effects? I'd think the ranged accuracy and quick delay would help immensely with this. I'm at 57 now, and I can build tp much faster if I wear ranged accuracy gear and fire bolts, even with a crossbow with a higher delay.
faster than dart?

For some reason this one is faster than dart. I was camping thief knife NM and a JP use this crossbow with bloody bolt and it can beat my dart.

168 delay vs. 216 delay? I don't think so.

What you experienced would be lag.
It looked like you started your RA at the same time he did, but really you probably started a second or more later.

I did a little digging, and apparently Ziska is a Bohemian General from the 15th-16th century who never lost a battle... what it implies by RNG or THF equippable is anyone's guess...

Real nice Crossbow for landing bolts, though.

Also, the Honebami(Great Katana) that also drops from this KBCNM does blunt damage, perhaps this may as well? though I have no idea... just throwing that out there.

From what i found here Ziska
It says he lost one eye in a boyhood accident and later lost his other eye at the siege of Raby. So he was totally blind when he fought the battles he is famous for winning.
I don't know how this pertains to this xbow being usable by thf and rng, but i suppose it makes the +racc make a little more sense. A blind man who can win battles.
