    How do bows work with wolf/bear?

    See title

    The attack is still not ranged, but how does the rest work?
    Chance to hit? Damage? Range?

    Some bows fire magic arrows... how will this work? And the piercing attack? Will the +ama skill influence these?

    Widowmaker gives +x guided arrow... will this have any effect on a druid?


    I know these are not easy questions, but if somebody tried it before...

    It will not fire any kind of arrow. It will just hit things in melee range, like a melee weapon, that's all. Think of it as a melee weapon.

    I believe damage will be based on dexterity though.

    No arrows will be fired, so magic arrows don't matter. Since nothing is fired, piercing will not happen. +ama skill won't help you.

    You can't use guided arrow in wereform.

    Chance to hit and damage are the same as those of a ranged attack; all missile weapons have rangeadder 0, so when used as melee weapons they have melee range 1-3 against size 1-3 targets.

    No missiles are fired, so Fires Magic Arrows, Fires Explosive Arrows or Bolts and Piercing Attack do not apply. Even if they did, no skill bonuses of any kind would affect them.

    Werewolf and Werebear Druids cannot use oskills like Widowmaker's Guided Arrow while shifted, although a human could.

    Werewolves and Werebears cannot use oskills like a Passion weapon's Zeal while shifted, although they could use a Harmony missile weapon's Valkyrie oskill or Revive charges before shape shifting.

    Ok :/
    A new question, then

    After shapeshifting, ias offweapon won't work... but will 45% ias from fade work? Treachery could be a great choice then, maybe together with beast/faith fanaticism


    EDIT - I got confused, that's a wrong question, sorry xD

    Fade doesn't give IAS.

    Many moons ago I used a Buriza on my FuryWolf. Great weapon until I found a Ribby (upped-shaeled). Purely melee though.
