    Default Opinion: Wind Howler Bracers worth rearranging equipment for?

    Just hit level 13 and was looking through stuff on my pack mules and found I had the Wind Howler Bracers. Marksmanship offers a +2 bonus on attack rolls & +1 to damage.

    Unfortunately, I find I have to rearrange a lot of my gear and craft some new stuff to open that slot and still keep my doubleshot/ranged alacrity/deadly/stat bonus items etc..

    So, I was wondering before I go through all that trouble if people found it worth keeping on for a while?

    Does it pretty much stack with all other archer bonuses from items/feats/enhancements, etc...?

    Well. Depending on what difficulty you are playing to hit is mostly not the problem, unless you play reaper.

    +2 to hit and +1 damage shoudl stack but you can get better from 2 items from red fens. ravens set and claw set. +3 to hit and damage and minimum level 7.

    The extra sonic damage from wind howler is on average 35 and half of that on saved mobs. This does however only occur on a 20. so 35/20=1.75 damage on average on each hit. And this is totally disregarding crits which lowers it even more. So again you are better of with red fens loot.

    So to answer you question: No, don't rearrange you gear for that item.

    I think the strength of this item is the profiecientcys (spelling) that it grants more than anything else.

    Thank you both! I'll look into that Red Fens - skipped those, not on purpose....

    If you have the Ravenloft pack, I would go full RL to get both Adherents of the Mists and Silent Avenger Sets. That combination of gear can carry you all the way to epics and is only lvl 10.
