stop using million storm!

For clearing trash imo I feel like u get way more dps done spamming piercing arrow WHILE IN FIRST PERSON MODE. Especially when ur running thru mobs kiting them and lining them up behind you ,sometimes drop a gravity bomb just to help you and everyone else clear trash faster especially in ultimate quest. For boss and single target banish into peircing or master shot depending on how many hitboxes the boss has but imo i stay using piercing arrow because it charges faster which I love cause I move side to side all around the bosss and its so fun. unless you are lazy keep using million storm!

theres no dps meter in this game but I like to compare how much damage I do in the mining base uq I always hit first place barley picking up any crystals just focusing on mobs and bosses when the results pop up after the uq ends the game always gives me God of Destruction. Nemesis>Slave Bow>katana if u dunno which braver to go katanas on ship 1 are more 2x more expensive than bows. 30 million for a katana(nemesis) and 12 million(nemesis) bow when bow just does way more dps imo bow braver is the way to go 🙂

Million Storm has its worth but not for most quest types like Bossing, or Point Collecting quests like Rain EQ where bosses spawn.

Meme Storm is only great against mobs you can down with 2-3 hit from storm while stationary. When it comes to things like PSE bursts where there's a lot of monsters spawn (1 per player in map), that's when Million storm finds its place where the group stays together and try to get cross bursts and increase chains/time as Zanverse can be used and such.

The skill seems strong for a new player but actually much weaker than piercing arrow PA combos which is the misconception most players don't understand.

I'm playing katana braver on controller and tried out bow for some content where it's good for but honestly, playing ranged classes with a controller is hell. Million storm so far seems to be only good for low level trash mobs and Extreme quest meseta farming where you can clear a whole room with just one full activation.

As for piercing arrow am I supposed to use charged shots or just spam it uncharged? Both ways I feel it eats up my pp like a muscle car eats fuel.

Yea.. as a bow user and a person that use the damage training facility, I can tell u that million bow and torrential arrow do almost same damage. Hell my normal charge shot does more damage than my piercing shot charge. Real difference is how they do it. If I can stand still I use million and if I need to move I use torrential. Same with piercing, I use it if I need to move constantly. But saying that it does less damage like that means I don't really c what u r doing in the game. Also that u don't know that there's a place to check damage out put, suggest u play Jap version just following meta.

@Rafahil893 When it comes to penetrating arrow, it depends on whether or not charging it is needed. For instance, in the case that you're kiting mobs and they're at a straight line towards you, you can charge to wipe the whole group with head shots (highly recommend to z-aim). When it comes to bossing, you tend to not charge your penetrating arrow and shoot it uncharged because you will be doing your banishing combos to get those big numbers going.

It's something people should need to know when starting bow:

  • It's a very PP reliant weapon (mainly because your banishing combos), so it's an expensive weapon to play with.
  • It's difficult to use because you need to understand your PA, and weapon first. Not to mention being able to position yourself when against different bosses to make use of weak stance.
  • High skill ceiling, the learning curve for bow is quite high compared to other weapons as it forces you to understand the game mechanics to play efficiently.

Watching a fellow Braver use Million Storm on Apos Dorios the other night during the Luther UQ hurt me in a way I don't think I can accurately bring to words.

Please - don't use Million Storm. It seems super powerful, it seems super cool, but almost every other Bow PA we have is better than it is. Even Penetrating Arrow is better at trash clearing than Million Storm is. There's just no real practical reason to use it over any other PA.
