Super Sweet!

My Half-Orc Blackguard just found this:

b) a Short Bow (x4) (+9,+12) <+2> {??}
Found lying on the floor at 200 feet (level 4)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
+2 dexterity.
+2 shooting power.

Shame I don't have any arrows.

Nice bow. Hopefully you've acquired some arrows and are doing some damage.

Thank you - arrows acquired and many a shot (although a blackguards mana situation favors melee)

I didn't quite expect a decision point so soon though:

u) the Heavy Crossbow 'Nilos' (x6) (+8,+16) <+1, +2>
Found lying on the floor at 1750 feet (level 35)

+1 constitution.
+2 searching skill.
+2 shooting power.
Provides resistance to Cold, Dark.
Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
Sustains dexterity.
Prevents paralysis.

My Lothlorien bow does 58.5 with a base arrow, Nilos above does 115.1 with a base bolt. (I have some seeker bolts at home that will do 212

So I have Hold life and the +2 dex (.3 extra blows with my Maul of Westernesse) vs the extra bow damage (basically double) and extra con point (7 HP)

Well, here is another Buckland first. The weaponshop has a sling of Buckland immediately after character creation. Would have been nice after enchanting if I could have afforded it...

Just kill about 5000 aimless looking merchants.
