    Default Combat Archery Doesn't Work - When Will It Be Fixed???

    So... some ranged nerfage is afoot in 15.1, but what about Combat Archery??? It's an epic feat with a steep DEX requirement. Would be nice if it actually gave +[W] at Point Blank Range. Currently it ONLY gives the 2% dodge.

    SS or it didn't happen.

    (I've been under the impression that this feat was working as described.)

    Don't be silly, expect the feat to be further nerfed by Turbine so they can maintain their status quo of nerfing stuff that didn't need to be nerfed.

    Spent a while testing it on my artificer and the targeting symbol for the feat shows up when you are in the correct range to get the +W but none of the promised +W is actually added. The 2% dodge bonus is nice but thats all Combat Archery is currently giving.

    So, just for those playing at home, that's 3 out of 3 epic feats/abilities that can increase Bow base damage that are broken. Combat Archery, Improved Martial Arts and Dance of Flowers (From the Grandmaster of Flowers destiny). And not being fixed anytime soon, by the looks of it.

    Funnily enough, my monkcher had three solid choices for his two epic feat slots: Combat Archery, Improved Martial Arts, and Vorpal Strikes. And now they are all broken. Whee! So... mobility + spring attack o_O?

    Now that you mention it. "Shot on the Run" does NOT work either. So if you want no attack penalty while running (kiting), then you need to take "Spring Attack."

    Extensive testing shows that this feat is not adding +1[W] damage http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=391816

    Let's put it this way: give it a few more months and it *might* make it into the known issues list...

    So dissapointed after leveling a Zen Archer to epic levels and finding out Combat Archery, Improved Martial Arts and A Dance of Flowers all don't work with bows. Missing a total of +3[W] =(

    This issue has been commented on by devs, so they -are- aware of the issue (wish I could link you to the post in question). Not sure why it's not on the known issues list, or even why it's a problem in the first place o.O. I mean, if they can get PBS and deadly weapons to work fine, it seems odd that these are bugging.

    Its damage probably just doesn't stack with PBS, or something to that effect. :P

    This is pretty significant. C'mon devs, any progress on this?

    not even an official acknowledgement in 6 months. don't forget that stay good shiradi effect, arguably a 4th archer related epic feat/ability is also broken that could allow many of us to break dr a lot more simply.

    honestly i dont know if this stuff even CAN be fixed. is there anyway they could sell fixes for these bugs in the ddo store? cause that's about the only way i imagine it happening.
