Not like a sd is going to loose to grounded glassbow...but a scout bow, or vorg bow will get smashed by glass. I've already beaten glassbow w/ gimpbow on the new server...but i crave a glassy.

:lol: The fake "shifty" surely has fallen to me plenty of times and you aren't gimped if you don't have a glass bow.. you've just been spoiled by the Skah! glass and don't know how to play the field without one which is sad. I smash scouts everyday that have glass bows and I use the slow as [fluffy bunnies] scout bows or a war bow. Glass=fail

I have tested this very thing in the past and on a con/int proc scout the warbow can actually out DPS the glass bow as long as you have a decent amount of INT to prop up the procs AND superior ATR.

If you have superior atr, then it's not the same build any more - is it? :)

Bird with glass bow if I were to make a scout again. Only other serious option is Belgosch.

Of course it's the same build. I'm simply stressing the importance of great ATR ON THAT BUILD. As long as you have that the Warbow will out DPS the glass bow overall

Actually the only thing that makes it close is the fact that the glass does poison dmg not pierce and 90% of your opponents on that proc scout are going to be pierce resist heavy rogues. AFter all the vamp proc on glass has very low damage (even if those extra heals are nice they really are not vital seeing as how you should have around 5k health)
However in today's SB many of those same rogues are going to be running around with 50% or better poison resists too (i do, courtesy of a bot) simply because of the prevelance of glass (and it comes in handy against several other rogue classes like huntress) sooooo you are back to the warbow having a significant advantage.

By the time you have ran to a zone and got in one fight that buff will be half over, let alone any longer stays, minefights etc. I guess to some people being in a zone for 10 mins without dying or needing to evac is a rare enough occurrence that 15 minute freehold parked buffs factor into their game plan.

Glass bow is the better weapon. Too good imo, which is why people are offering 17 mill for one in CB and not just rolling with warbows.

This is another reason why I like Belgosch scouts. Summon the bot to the zone whenever you need to refresh buffs.

To each their own. If you feel it's too much of a hassle to deal with then by all means don't do it. Perhaps you are happier spending 20 trains on the RC resist buff or sacrificing multiple jewel slots for those resists. Or perhaps just maybe the reason you think glass bows are so OP is because your toon runs with 0 poison resist and needs to run every time your opponent in the field is sporting one. I really don't care.

And Yes, I have no problem running a complete zone in under 15 minutes. It's not as if i check all the droppers in a zone then hang out in hopes someone will show up eventually for some pvp lol. :lol: and if somone is in the zone when i get there great I still have the resists on.

Personally I have no problem sporting that GM poison resist. It's not as if I don't often times park my summon bot out in the wilderness close to desirable zones anyways. For that matter if you don't think the warbow will out DPS the glass then you should test it - I did. But don't let me stop you from farming up that 15 mil.. Just because i am content with the warbow doesn't mean you need to be.

I suppose by your same logic it's much better to use UH wep proc as opposed to a sader bot ?

Absolutely. Conc and go. Do you also advocate botting traveller for your "scout"?

The only scout template That i use traveler on is a server up generic dex/con bird bowscout and only because of it's convient yet still some- what competitive because it's at server up . If you want to build a template that will be able to compete at the highest levels then no traveler and no UH. Those two together equal 26 trains and two Disc slots that could be put to better use elsewhere. After all the only thing you've gained over the alternative is a little convenience.

Bots - especially on a scout toon - are for sissies.

If I had my way, toons wouldn't be allowed any buffs that weren't chants or self buffs.

Ohh Chetters I love it when you make up total fiction. I didn't play an active scout for either team during that phase. And it's hilarious that someone who can't even get into a scout fight unless they are towing three bots or have a full group behind them even comments.

Now why don't you go back to trolling the forums and let the grown ups discuss real things. After all someone who can't play a solo scout at all has no need to be here in this thread.

I find this kind of purist attitude very appealing. It would certainly make for an entirely different SB however it's not the SB we currently have now is it.
Sckorch wrote:bow scout should never lose to a dagger scout period. If you did you skah as a scout. He should hardly be in your range!
Is this your opinion or have you actually had this fight ? The bow scout can never chew through all the health / heals of a con/int proc scout without stamming out first. Unfortunately the dagger scout has a much harder time preventing an evac and getting the kill but if built and played right the bow scout should not be able to get a kill at all without a very lucky string of procs going off.

a rat dagger scout will pwn any bow scout that cant fly....period...this is talking equal skill level players and builds. or in my scouts case(can kill any bow scout) it has no def and suffers to dagger or UA scouts...but i mean who cares...everyone playes bow scouts so why worry =P. I always consider transfering my build to coix and being untouchable though.... i h8 playing what everyone else does....FCK coix scouts. Ill make a coix scout when people stop whoreing out bow scouts.
