Missing Stats for Two Longbows

Unread post by sir_blacksoutalot » Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:54 am

There are two longbows for which the items descriptions are missing info about the "extra damage" component:

Swordbow
+3 EB
+1d4 Fire Damage
+10 Hit Points
Extra ranged damage: Slashing = ?

Bonecrusher Longbow +3
+3 EB
+4 Mighty
Extra ranged damage: Bludgeoning = ?


Can anyone provide some intel on how much slashing damage the Swordbow inflicts?

And how much bludgeoning damage the Bonecrusher does?

Vyrana Ravenmoor ~ Priestess of Fate, Harbinger of Misfortune ~
Grum Grognazdiak ~ Dwarven Rogue Arcanist: Skulker, Schemer, Scavenger ~

Good against things with Damage Reduction Piercing :)

Reiker Vexx ("Adventurer") - Fortune favors the bold.
Cyrus Raviin (Conjurer) - Power always comes at a price. The question is, are you willing to pay?
Abraxsis Dul'Khan (Merchant) - Oooo now isn't that shiny?

Hu.. Is it? I always assumed it means that the longbow does piercing as well as slashing/blunt damage... Which would mean that a creature with resistant to either would be resistant to your damage.. I saw it as a type of nerf, not a buff.

It can be a double edged sword. Certain monsters might have a resistance like "Bludgeon 25%," and if your weapon has bludgeon damage type added to it it will indeed apply. It can definitely be quite good in a few situations (bludgeon damage on piercing/slashing weapons in particular for dealing with skeletons comes to mind).
