    Sniping accuracy bonus seems to have made a difference - missing sometimes, but it's more like 1/20 than 5-6/20.

    I always thought sniping increased damage.. but if it's just accuracy, it seems a little trivial now, except that I can snipe without aiming.

    Shooting people dead with absolute precision with my eyes closed.

    I will have to test this later. o.o

    They should have taken the Zen Archery major trait - You may shoot arrows as though you had Chivalry/Subterfuge Wind, but you must be blind and without mindseye defense.

    Not tested. Offhand thought from years of leap/evade/travel out after being blown up in a skirmish into sniping.

    Increases accuracy and hides the name of the shooter, yes.

    I forgot that was even a issue. My bad. :-P

    FYI Arditi has sniped with one eye for the past 10 IG years.

    Bows are lame

    Santar cried for so long to get it nerfed so that nobody but him could snipe 100% without losing anything

    haha santar

    So now that meteors have been nerfed as well... can we please have that refund option on bows/shooting? It is next to useless to be able to use my bow in dragon now. Breathstream is better damage over time than breathstream + bow with the accuracy, even with it's slow speed.

    350cr wasted, and it'll cost me even more to upgrade to Lupine eventually. :(

    You can upgrade from shoot ranger to non-shoot lupine, so it doesn't affect anything in the long run.

    In the short run, Meteors are just as good as they ever were, but you can no longer 'raid' or 'defend' from 20 rooms away.

    You can... how? I only just upgraded to velocity before the update, and I don't have the credits to upgrade to Lupine now, but I don't see anything in the artefact upgrade scroll that says you can do that.

    You can probably do it through ingame commands, but I don't know what they are.

    Message @Tecton once you have the credits if you can't figure it out before then, he'll help you.
