Can anyone tell me if Combat Archery has been fixed? My own limited testing with a basic longbow from the little smithy in the harbor looks as if the +1W damage still has not been fixed even after a year.

Also the enhancements in the AA prestige that should end up giving me a +8 on every bow I equip do not seem to be working either. If I equip the basic no + longbow the +8 enhancement shows up in the weapon details, however, if I equip say a +4 longbow with no other properties on it, it remains in the weapon details a +4 longbow although there is text saying that I have added enhancements adding up to +8. There does not appear to much of a damage difference between the two so I am unsure if it is a serious bug (i.e. the enhancement benefits not overiding the + on the bow) or a minor bug such as the weapon details not displaying the improved weapon enhancement correctly.

Anyone know the best way to test this? or has anyone already done testing and have these answers?

I too am interested to see if Combat Archery has been fixed, my archer on Lamland doesn't have the necessary dex to test.

However, I have tested the Grandmaster 1.5[W] ability with a longbow, and that does appear to be fixed. This may be old news to everyone else of course.

I was trying that as a twist on a Qstaff build with no Monk levels but had no good way to test it - do you have to have Monk levels or be actively in Grandmaster to be considered "centered" for that ability? Or will it work under any conditions a Monk would normally be centered, ie no armor no encumbrance and a Ki-compatible weapon?
