Your right about over powered bows. Why is that in every game of this type they always overpower bows? I find that a bit annoying. It gets even more overpowered in the wastelands. My melee charactor routinely gets bows that do 25-160 damgage from drops and the highest one is, get this 61-190. The highest 2 handed sword I found was around 90-145 damage. On top of the bow doing more damage, you can use the split arrow skill and all the elemental damage skills. The one that adds posion to a bow gives much more poison(I think 8 to 10 times more than for the melee poison skill)

I found a two-handed sword that could do ("get this") 100 something-215 damage (" the sword in the stone")! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" /> However, in the wastelands I once found a bow that, (if I'm not mistaken) was doing about 170-250 damage (was called something like "trackers hunting bow")! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ROFL.gif" alt="" /> How's THAT for damage without any cheating methods, huh? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/badsmile2.gif" alt="" /> [/quote]

Thats insane damage on that sword. I had a sword in the stone that did 96-125. Wowzers on the bow damage as well!
