Composite bow
Base speed [-10]
P- Fast


Repeating Crossbow
Base Speed [-40]
P - Fast


On my classic bowa PALADIN i found a repeating crossbow and a 20 ias Composite bow, but it seems like the Composite bow is shooting faster..

Composite is labeled Very Fast -10 + 20 ias
VS
Repeating is labeled Fast -40 + 0 ias

Why is the -10 +20 shooting faster than the -40 + 0 ?? Or is this just an optical illusion???

I assume your figuring this out with the IAS calculater?


Just seems like the visual numbers is "showing" opposite....

The exact calculation for weapon speed is kinda fucky, so you’re better off using the calculator yeah.

The dependence is on the type of weapon AND the class. A certain weapon can be fast for one or two classes, but slow for others.
