    Archery vs. Marksmanship!

    I'd like to see what people prefer. No need to post gear specs. Just honest truth about what's your favorite ranged weapon is.

    I prefer using status bolts during xp to make things that much easier.

    I guess I am biased since RDM has a weak archery skill, but there are some massvily awesome crossbow bolts. After a streak of crappy parties on my 28 WAR, I decided to solo mandragoras outside of Kazham. It took a while, but I was geting 120-160xp a kill, all thanks to those lovely Bloody Bolts. I used acid bolts to compensate for the damage reduction I had because of Defender. I used sleep bolts to pull so I could Tonko and run past all of the gobs undetected. If I had known I was going to solo, I would have brought some blind bolts as well.

    Also, Ninjas who use guns are just teh sackasy!
