Should we replace the daze with a stun? The skills on the weapon are excellent. It needs more damage.the skills?That kitten sucks. The weapon sucks.yes rework all that kitten. It's all bad.and its not like it wasn't done before, just look at Longbow.maybe I am going overboard with the 'whole weapon' thing.But a lot of it just doesn't work. Changing the dmg is in no way, a fix for sbow.The evade is bad. Not particularly fond of any backward evades. In pvp it doesn't keep one in the fight very well...it's just a bad retreat that will only buy you seconds.Compare it to a staff 3----- Imagine that, if sbow had a staff 3 HA!The bleeds? Eh maybe if it was a true hybrid weapon?No situational flanking or being behind a target--that is just bad.No one is going to run from a shortbow ranger and there is no shortbow way to get behind a target.What if there was a 'staff 3 like ability' that put a sbow ranger behind their target--wow.Lastly, the range, the range, the range, the range. Can't say it enough. It;s too short. Unless they want to give some amazing movement abilities to the ranger like the obnoxious ones I mentioned above. Then the range wouldn't be so bad.I don't think you can directly compare SB3 with staff 3. Staff 3 is a movement skill, SB3 is an evade and swiftness. The hop backwards just lets you be more elusive. The zero direction requirement is underrated as well. Out of all the skills on SB, I think this one is the best. 5 is of course amazing but the CD is a bit long.Never compared any skill directly with another one. I was just pointing out how bad many skills of the sbow are. I also mentioned some crazy off the cuff ideas I had while writing my response.Which I might add, I like. Just want to point out, everything about the staff works.It would be lovely to feel as confident about the reworked (probably never happen) skills on the shortbow.
