      The verry Much needed buffed barrage from DS3........if you ever think this is
      Is bad...oh Boy........., DS3, you were loosing like 70% dmg and it costed 4fp....this cost half as Much for only 20-30% less than regular shots....................this is to apply pressure and status effects

      • Seems like a waste of space? An ash for only a single weapon. The composite bow could've come with barrage too since you get the might shot ash waaaaaay before you would naturally get the bow anyways.

          "Despite this Ash of War being available in-game, there is actually no weapon in the base game that can equip this Ash of War that does not already have it inherently. Since elemental affinity of bow-type weapons cannot be modified, there is currently no use for this item"
          That's not true, the Composite Bow has Mighty Shot by default, so this item is basically only good for putting barrage on the Composite Bow

            The day they allow this to be placed on standard bows I’ll be a happy guy. Albinauric and Horn bow builds would be showing up more!

              you can only use it on composite bow. Why does this even exist but as a **** you to the player finding it.

                This skill is pretty underrated - if you don't mind shilling out for arrow refills (or farming up resources to craft your own - the lightning/cold arrows work very well!)
                it gives excellent dps for the arrow costs - you'll be doing more damage than dual-jump combos with a shortbow and it easily stagger-locks most small/fast/annoying enemies like dogs.
                The real advantage though is the ability to draw and fire a shot instantly - if you have fast reflexes you can just pop a player out of the air in pvp with this. don't expect this to be a stagger-lock combo that instakills players, but its definitely an excellent tool against casters or light armored katana wielders.

                Playing through as an archer isn't so bad, as long as you don't mind spending money on ammo resources instead of level ups, but if you would like to try, don't be surprised if sometime you end up just dumping 100k runes to restock on various elemental arrows. It's still fun to use, after a while I simply started replacing my basic bow attack with this skill's use - lategame the amount of money you get more than makes up for the extra arrow use!

                  I don't see the Teardrop Scared and I don't have the Ash of War. I think my game may have bugged and I can’t get it until my next playthrough

                    Hard to recommend this in good faith due to getting less damage, being very costly in resources to use, and the fact that shields will stop you in your tracks as well a many enemies who like to dodge if you so much as look at them with an arrow. Not to mention the fact that bows in general seem to really fall off in the late game due to just awful stat scaling.

                    In BAD FAITH however, if you have access to a certain rune farming spot in Mohgwyn and willing to take some time to have more than enough runes to afford it, this can be a blast to use.
                    A lot of the lighter enemies can be stagger locked into oblivion with this skill before being able to really do anything about it and you can launch a solid amount of DPS in a short amount of time, as well as getting status effects within 1 or 2 stamina bars a decent amount of the time. It also is really quick allowing you to stop arrowing and switch to dodging very quickly

                    You will definitely tear through your arrow stockpile at the speed of sound however and replacing those arrows is going to get expensive FAST. So again...wouldn't recommend it without some easy way to get loads of runes.
                    But maybe give it a try if you do have the runes, might give your bow build a little bit more spice, anything to keep you away from the dual-katana build. *shudders*

                      Someone used this on a serpent bow with serpent arrows in low level PvP against me. I'm not sure if their bow was unupgraded, but at level 30, it does very poor damage in PvP.
