I went to this site http://perfectweb.org/ddo/crafting/base_crafting.php to figure what i need for making an Aspect of Earth II Long Bow.

Tier 1: Acid
Tier 2: Acid Burst
Tier 2 Bonus effect: Aspect of earth

Tier 3: either the +4 AC or the +2 exceptional Con
Tier 3 second shard: stays blank
Tier 3 bonus effect: Aspect of earth II

so a few quick questions i have are 1. is the tier 3 second shard line supposed to be blank? which would you guys think is better for the Tier 3 effect i'm open for suggestions on it.
