    I have never cherished the stability on my bow until i tested this one.

    The importance of stability does effect the damage output. choose what stability you use also depends on your play style. While this works for me, for you, you may not care as much. But here is what a bow with higher stability does vs a bow with lower stability.

    Bows used to test - Player Crafted Forest Wolf Bow vs Exo Bow

    Char lvl- 80, full dex

    Stats on bow -
    • Forest Wolf - 70% Stability, paired with arrow, 20% Stability = 90% total.
    Dex+4%, Crit+7 w/Ganglef +D​

    • Exo Bow - 40% Stability, paired with arrow, 20% Stability = 60% total.
    Atk+4%, Crit+8 w/Ganglef +D​

    Did tests on Silver Roars, Roga & Mauez.
    dmg output are all snipe smite.

    Exo Bow w/Tempest arrow
    1-17137
    2-17315
    3-16423
    4-17721
    5-16958
    6-16779
    7-15173
    8-missed
    9-17494
    10-missed again T.T
    11-missed
    12-52483

    FW Bow w/Tempest arrow
    1-16656
    2-16656
    3-16656
    4-16656
    5-49969
    6-49969
    7-19685
    8-16656
    9-16656
    10-16656
    11-16656
    12-missed

    Exo Bow w/HQ arrow 1148atk
    1- 20877, 27865, 20966
    2 - 21387, 21186, 25756
    3 - 19862, 20966, 17214
    4 - 17435, 21849, 22077, 19437 (last one no smite)

    FW Bow w/HQ arrow 1041atk
    1- 20446, 20446
    2 - 20446, 28485, 24164, 22443 (last one no smite)
    3 - 39878, 24164, 20446, 20446
    4 - 45576, 20446, 20446, 28485

    Exo Bow w/Tempest arrow 1155atk
    1- 19795, failed, failed
    2 - 8303, 14591
    3 - 31770, 38435
    4 - 23015, 38043
    5 - 3777, 29868
    6 - 14139, failed
    7 - failed, 27757
    8 - 3459, 31858
    9 - 23614, 32190
    10 - 8799, 20675

    FW Bow w/Tempest Arrow 1048atk
    1 - 7397, failed
    2 - 4543
    3 - 3477
    4 - 27822, 31242
    5 - stunned -.-, 30922
    6 - 25039
    7 - 39456
    8 - 33386
    9 - 9864, 30922
    10 - 22256

    How I interpret those numbers...
    While the exo bow had higher dmg output at times, it's never guaranteed, it has a wider range and can occasionally hit that awesome snipe. The fw bow has a more consistent damage output with less chance of failing to deal damage. Even having the higher attack number with exo bow, because of a higher stability on a fw, the damage output averages out to almost the same depending on certain bosses.

    i'm curious to the thoughts of other bow users :)

    pretty sure those missed snipes are evaded by boss, since crit hits won't miss no matter what n I'm sure ur snipes are all yellows lol
    first time I heard a bow with atk60, I rushed to check some in consignment. then I saw (40%)... meh lol
    stability is always an important damage modifier to me, n a loss in 20% stability is no joke.
    maybe when we capped DEX n start going STR half-capped then we can be less worry about stability.
    anyway, nice experiment. much appreciated infos

    exo bow's stability is indeed very low lol. I still use it though for no real reason but since steel leaf bow is there why not try it? It has higher atk than FW and higher stability than Exo so Ima go try it xD.

    Yeah if gear bow didn't exsist then I would recommend that leaf bow- it's stats look very good:eek:, not used to asobimo being so nice lol they usually troll us. For me the anything that will get me to stab% 80-90 is fine. Any lower an it's a gamble most timesXD.

    fw bow is a godsend. however i don't think arrows add stability to the bow, but rather, has stability of its own since i feel that if it actually did add stability, the arrow stats would probably be stability +20%.

    i remember how excited i got when ganglef first came out and i got the bow, then i took a look at its stability - nope :mad:

    arrows adds flat stability to bow/bowgun's stability. with wolf bow u can reach perfect stability (100%) with correct armor n additional

    Yeah. Getting more ATK/DEX with add gears is better than getting that 5% stab for a consistent damage.

    Vampire Cape
    ATK +1%, Dodge +2, Stability +4%, Natural HP Regen +6%

    ya, 100% stability gear set is only for study matters

    IMO if you'll be using bows, crit rate is not needed anymore since Snipe with bows crits most of the time (if not all). Better go with Cdmg 4% instead.
