    well me and a friend went to inside arena and he stood in 1 spot and i stood in another we timed with a helenid and iron bow the speed of each, what we did is i fired 5 times with each bow and as soon as the first arrow hit him he started his stop watch we did this with each bow and we never moved are spots because the 5 arrows didnt kill him and he just potted up when i switced to the next bow so he was in the same spot each time

    Time:
    helenid in 5 shoots took 6.7seconds
    iron bow in 5 shoots took 6.7 seconds

    so im posting this so theres not any more speculation about which fires faster or slower they fire the excat same speed

    no flames i searched to see if there was a topic similar to this but i didnt find nothin only ppl saying stuff without test/results[/b]
    this depends on how you tested...the reason people say a ib is faster is because it locks on a target faster....so if u was shooting multiple targets, such as skeliton champs in raon camp....you will notice that the heleand bow targets a monster.05 seconds slower then an ib...and can kill monsters faster..i also tested...when you have a heland bow...it turns around slower...then if u was to use an ib...you are right ,,,,about them shooting the same speed...but to target then shoot...then its slower...when you turn around it is .05 seconds slower...

    lol.. no wonder i was feeling like something was missing from the equation

    its not the time betwewen shots thats supposed to be the differnce between the 2 bows but the time from beginning the attack animation to the time the attack actaully starts

    so yeh.. if u wanna test teh differnce need to start from non attack position

    i actually did a comparison similar to yours
    i fired 9,999 shots
    the crossbow took 13398.66 seconds
    and the normal bow took 13398.68 seconds

    so now you know... if you want speed, choose iron bow
    if you want to shoot slow, choose crossbows

    u have it backwards u have the crossbow .02 seconds faster ^^

    Sorry I didn't know I needed to qualify myself. I've posted archer info on all KO forums for the last 3 years and have played every bow in the game from IB+8, Exc IB 8, CB 8, EB 8, HB 8, +9 IB and +10 HXB.

    Hence the conclusion of almost 4 years as an archer of:

    All Bows are same speed.

    Hope that helps the guy who wanted to know the answer to the question and the guy who flame/spammed me for being short and to the point (fuck nut),
    Here's a post showing archer dmg, any archer is welcome to post their dmg as DLW or 60+:

    You should care and it actually appears you do but about the wrong things.
