Crossbows are excellent weapons, especially for those who dare not risk hand-to-hand combat. Skilled archers can fell the most powerful of opponents without subjecting themselves to direct physical danger. Amazons are perhaps the most skilled archers in existence. Stories have circulated of Amazons who, through skill and training, can shoot projectiles enchanted with the essence of fire or ice.
The slower-firing crossbows require dexterity. However, their higher velocity bolts do even more damage than Bows.
Bolts - Crossbow wielders must always be alert to ensure that their supply of ammunition doesn't run out in the midst of battle. Crossbows use small bolts as ammunition. Up to 250 bolts can be held in a quiver. Bolts are stackable items and partial quivers of the same type can be combined.
Crossbows do not have Durability.
Crossbow speeds are listed by Class: Ama = Amazon, Asn = Assassin, B = Barbarian, D = Druid, N = Necromancer, P = Paladin, S = Sorceress.
