With ranger that weapon is heavy artillery compared to usual shooters.

x5 might * 3 shots * (+30 shooter bonus + arrow dice & bonuses) makes a ordinary 3d4 mithril arrow do 562 points of damage / turn. Add in ego-ammo and you have hard time finding a melee-weapon that does the same damage.

You need quite large stack of arrows though, M manastorms destroy most and you don't have much time to collect them back during combat.

This must be the best shooter I have seen in vanilla even including randarts.
