Hello. I am running an artificer and find myself working my way through House Cannith presently. I am wondering about what crossbow I should make to increase my damage profile to reduce the time it takes to mow down all these warforged and constructs. I have read through the usual posts regarding DR beaters but I find little (no?) reference to ranged weapons. As I run my arti as a ranged damage dealer (mostly xbow, some spells) and buffer, any suggestions on the best combination of prefix/suffix on my xbow?
I know that I can make Construct Bane bolts, would that would stack with a xbow that has (Greater) Construct Bane on it as well? I have seen almost no Smiting xbows in AH and since it's not craftable, irrelevant. Also, I have all of the various weapon Buff (law, chaos, adamantine, deadly) spells available. I usually stick with my Slaver's Hand xbow in most content but am finding that to do little damage in House C Would the (Epic) Silver Slinger have any benefit over a crafted weapon due to the Blunt Ammunition or would that only make a difference with Clay Golems?
One other thing, any particularly suggested Rune Arm? Normally stick with my Lucid Dreams which has Blind Immunity and Ranged Alacrity slotted into it as well.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
