New Legendary Longbow : some additional Pharus effect you might not have noticed

  • When you critically hit an enemy with bow attacks, a pillar of light effect will strike the enemy.
    There is not Internal CD.
    There is also a small trail of light that flows from your hand
    Visible at 1 minute.

  • Dragon Hunter longbow skill #3 has same animation than other skill, making it harder to dodge/avoid

    I love the draw on this one and it's a shame most people overlook that.

    Smugly chuckling forever.
    My sentence doesn't make sense? Well, I probably forgot to write half of it before posting.

  • Will probably be the first legendary I get, I love just about everything about it.

    ☠ Is it better to out-monster the monster or to be quietly devoured? ☠

    The draw, imo, is the only good part of the new longbow.
    The pillar of light on crit is a nice touch, but I'm not sure if it's worth it to get, especially since I planned on using it on a DH.
    The animations and color looks too similar to the base DH LB ones.

    Good showcase. I noticed the right hand energy but forgot about it.

    A few screenshots I think are helpful:

    Pharus's draw animation is actually so tall you can't see the top of it so I was lucky to find another player with the bow who drawed it for me for screenshot. This is how tall it is in a recognizable location for scale. And it scales with character model a bit, too.

    Screenshot of the crit effect. The crit effect might be the most over the top aspect of any legendary ever.

    It goes up so, so high. It's kind of unbelievable.

    Thanks for the screen they are beautiful !
    This legendary is for me really underated

  • How do you actually start this Legendary? I've been to Hobbs etc and can't see any option for starting it.

    Is there a video out that shows the absurdly gigantic lightning "tower" on crits?
    I wanna see how it looks like when you crit non stop, especially from another players view from the distance, mountain or from the griffon's eye view

    Same for me but man it takes some doing. Just the mystic coins and amalgamated gemstones are a huge cost. I need to learn some patience I think lol.

    Yes, it costed me about 3000 Gold... That's sooo expensive.

  • Made it myself and I'm just in love with the visuals.

  • I'm actually not too fond of this one. I much prefer Kudzu. The effects are nice (if not kind of blinding), but the appearance of the bow itself is pretty underwhelming to me.

    Unless my partner has some setting off that hides it, I think the pillar of light at the target is only visibly to the wielder.

    Hmpf. Makes sense though. Such a gigantic pillar of light would probably make you an easy to spot target in WvW or simply annoy other players
    Nonetheless, awesome detail!

    This seems unfair. You see other player's unique Frostfang crits. You see incinerator's crits.

    A few of them. Incinerator and Frostfang are the only two I know off the top of my head because you can see them.

    This bow goes with DH so well, and finally a bow not aimed for cabbages, I want it, but I have reskinned kudzu account bound from years ago, and no point deleting a legendary.

    Shark spear has unique crits of a chomping ghost shark. Can be fun with the various multi-hit attacks.

    Make the new bow and reskin the old one..... BOOM 2 Legendaries with the skin you like. Which is perfect, since only builds seem to use it right now.

    It's crazy to still discover legendary effect after 6 years of playing, haha
