PostSubject: A question about Bows and damage   Sun Jan 05, 2014 8:31 pm

So I'm trying to make a general-purpose Bow build, and have settled on the Green Nargacuga Armor for it's skills (Focus, Stamina Recovery, Evasion).  So I'm trying to decide what to skill to gem/charm in for damage and I think I've narrowed it down to two options, but I'm not sure which one would be better.  The first is to go with Elemental, and the other is to have a set each for Normal/Pierce/Pellet up and swap between them depending on the bow I'm using.

So my question is, which would generally give me better damage output, Elemental or the Shot Up skills?

EDIT: And while I'm on it, I've never figured out what food skills are best for the Bow. I've been defaulting to Black Belt so that dodging doesn't put such a strain on my stamina, but are there better options of things I should be looking for?

Element is better.

Get Felyne Temper so it adds more raw damage. Getting Felyne Blackbelt is useless because you already have Stamina Rec up.

I guess I always figured Temper didn't work since it specified Bowgun in its description. Thanks Yes by vort

Yeah, this game isn't clear through text, but Felyne Temper does add bow damage.

In that same vein, does Sharpshooter affect Rapid shots? Obviously not as universal as Temper, but couldn't hurt to know Yes by vort

It should, although I'm not sure.
