    What are the advantages of using Fire Arrow or Poison arrow... (and the similar higher lvl skills such as Explosive Shot and VIPER)

    And fire arrow?[/b]
    fire arrow aint useful from what i remember.. maybe its good with a chitin bow?.....


    but poison is really useful.. i remember me and my friend were in our lvl 50's and we went to tyon farm to exp.. im a bp , he was archer. And he was able to lure all 3-4 slots using poison arrow, so we would be able to get super damn fast exp... i wouldnt hafta move more than half a step and there would be shitloads of tyons there :P. Its really effective if you know how to use it during exping... but make sure the mobs dont hit that hard or else you could die

    So each tyon you only had to hit with one poison arrow, then continue to next tyon?

    the poison kept dot damage up to continue to make it lure?

    yes, that is correct.

    in my opinion, fire arrow is useless but looks cool when used. poison is good for luring and for making a mob to xp.

    it will damage it for about 5 dot damages? something like that.. it'll keep it agro'ed for like 20 seconds or so..

    yep attack once and then next one, light feet away, after a while when ur used to it, you'll constantly have like 10 tyons @ ur ass :P make sure u have a strong melee with u... one that can kill them in 2-3 hits preferably. With only gold prem back then, at lvl 53, we got like 35% in an hour? was pretty good exp ^^

    Fire shot/explosive shot etc always do a static amount of damage. Even when you have a bow +1 it will do that amount of damage at least...Ofcourse for the rest it's totally useless. Poison is just used for luring, which can be handy when xping or getting a koxper killed.

    I read that explosive shot and other fire related arrows always deal the same dmg no matter what, similar to a priest's Critical Light.

    Is this true?
