They seem really weak now. I hadn't played for a couple seasons but why are they so weak now? I'm using same setup I used before and I only get 10,000 damage on my multi-shot. I use to get above 20,000.

What changes were made?

Not enough Dex.

Can anyone confirm when or if MS took a hit to it's damage? Bowzons lost the bulk of their power when amp got nerfed, GA got nerfed badly, and they lost the GG stygian fury revive. They can still do nasty damage with a necro. Hopefully with the stygian fury revive returning they'll have at least a nice place in trash running again.

Currently like lockdown said you need all dex gear period. I've seen bowzons clear tundra faster than a lot of builds with no amp. Catch is they end up being they most fragile build that way.

Bowzons have been built all dex since forever, I think it goes without saying(although I do remember the time where they didn't HAVE to). I'm a bit out of the loop though as a build like that has no place on HC, so I haven't seen a good one since ol 1.21z. I always giggle when someone tells me they're making one on HC. If they're clearing tundra with no amp on 90% physical resist(iirc) siege beasts sounds like they're still decent enough to me.

And I suppose without the oldschool GA they aren't looking too hot on bosses? Speaking of which, it would be nice to see GA get a slight tweak to where it isn't completely useless. Maybe leave it's pierce off and return it's 95% CTH? I dunno, I don't have enough recent experience with them to even give an educated opinion really.

i made one a few patches ago [2?], was great on trash, and useful for anything that can be knocked back for stun lock with high IAS. This was with decked out gear, 40 ed 15 ias jeweld holy armor etc. But bosses was basically fire a few ga, or strafe, die repeat

res's always sucked in hell

how is new patch coming along any rough eta?

Have to run Maras or great crafted ammy and 2x Con rings to make the resists work for that bitch.

I'm messing around with a dexazon (no great gear full Mav's atm) she does well in most areas I try. I have had little to no trouble getting maxed res throughout hell. With a bit of patience as she is now I can clear tundra and wsk. Oh, did I mention the socs in he gear are filled with topaz's and not rubies or diamonds/ :o And yes, full dex, not one single point in vit at all.

Rubies or Diamonds would be a waste. Valk and Merc tank well you just sit back and shoot Multi. Strafe to knockback something close.
