This bow should help right?

Ok I'm about to go on a leveling binge, and I thought it would be ok to ask if I need the Battle bow +1 if I've already got the Shikar bow.

I would like to know whether or not this bow is truly worth getting over the BB+1. I have already purchased this bow, but am asking in case that was a major ***** up on my part.
BB+1 Is better...

In my opinion, the Battle Bow +1 is better, and the Shikar Bow is basically a cheaper alternative (on Odin, at least where Shikar is 14k and BB+1 is 40k)

I did the "Worm's Turn" last night. had 2 rngs with this bow and 1 rng with the PB+1. The Power Bow +1 high everytime for -40 damage compared to the Shikar bow. The Shikar bow averaged about 135 damage where as the Power bow was averaging about 90 dmg.

yea, but have you compared it to a Shortbow?

Well when you compare a lvl 16 bow to a lvl 40 bow, that tends to happen...now if you were to compare it to say a Battle bow+1 .......

I had the same problem in deciding which bow to take. Being an elvaan ranger any bonus to my ranged accuracy takes preference. And the battlebow+1 being 40k and the Shikar being 8k my mind was made up.... Actually I purchased both just for the collection

when i asked which is better the Battle bow+1 or Shikar, I said Battle not Power Bow+1. What are you guys talkin about?

Go with whichever is cheaper on your server. Shikar runs over 100k on mine compared to like 15k for battle+1. So, battle+1 for me. The bows are virtually identical. Bit more damage on battle, bit more accuracy on shikar.

SHikar bow has 1 dmg , 2 more ranged accuracy 3 less ranged attack. 15 or 25 more delay and on the carbuncle server it is only 25k where battle bow +1 is 53k. it was a no brainer for me.
which should i get?

I submitted this, but they got the BCNM wrong. It's the new slime BC40 that drops this.

Don't you mean the Battle Bow +1, not Power Bow? XD

I got it for 45k at Ramuh. Very nice to me so far, but I haven't tried the Battle Bow so I can't say which would be better.

Finally, some choices for rangers in the bow department.
I wish i would have had this available from 40-50, but, eh, oh well. It is comparable to the power bow +1 but this has more delay, less damage, and less ranged attack. (the differences are very slight).

However, that added ranged acc is quite nice, and more than makes up for some of the other stats being lower.

It most likely would be most benficial for samurai or some other class wanting to hit with bone sometimes. However, it's rng only.

I haven't seen this up on fairy yet. Anyone care to share the cost on their servers?

[edit: Is this really dropped from the worm bcnm 40? I would have thought it would have been one of the new fights...]
