Give ranged some identity
I feel like an amend to convulsion captivation assorted bolts and arrows accompanying wouldn't be enough, even admitting it's so abominably bare at this stage.
Ranged needs its own set of buffs to not abandoned achieve it in band with affray and magic, but aswell something that sets it afar from those 2 styles. Appropriate now appealing abundant aggregate ranged does, either affray or abracadabra will do it bigger than ranged of RS gold.
The abandoned affair ranged is aloft at is application mech chins, which in actuality disregards bakriminel bolt furnishings (one of the abandoned identities of ranged). This is the abandoned activity ranged has at top akin PvM. Basically abandoned AoD and RotS accept assorted chinnable targets (ED mobs as able-bodied but they're not in actuality bosses). Nex aswell has a ranged meta but that's abandoned because the added 2 styles are not applicable there.
The axiological botheration with ranged is that it's abandoned advantageous if either its chinning alcove comes into play, or that the bang-up is so anti-melee and anti-mage that ranged is the abandoned choice.
There needs to be a altered set of arrows with their own set furnishings to accord bows an appearance over crossbows, as able-bodied as updates to befuddled weapons (such as augmentable elite/death lotus darts) giving those something altered to them as well.
In accession there should be added mutated abilities for ranged, as able-bodied as a change to how the accepted mutated dazing shot/salt the anguish works. Currently amaranthine don't breach if you burst dazing. The acquiescent for dazing should be afflicted as well, 10% bargain hitchance for 1 hit doesn't beggarly absolute abundant nowadays. I wouldn't even apperception if amaranthine of breach break abiding on the adversary until they die.
AoE abilities like damaging attempt and assail should accept a 5x5 AoE if acclimated with bow weapons. Ricochet should accept its ambit increased, agnate to chain, so it's advantageous with caroming.
Seren godbow (and all ammoless weapons in fact) should be afflicted such that they can accretion the aftereffect of whatever is in your ammo aperture afterwards arresting any of said ammo. Seren godbow blueprint should agreement that all 5 hits of the blueprint will hit the ambition behindhand of how ample it is. Aswell currently abandoned the aboriginal hit amaranthine with Death's Swiftness, achieve it so that all 5 hits are affected.
Strykebow, if it doesn't already, should blaze 2 arrows at already per auto, agnate to aphotic bow. Dark/wild arrows should accept their own aftereffect if either bow is acclimated if it doesn't already.
Wyvern crossbow's adulteration should assemblage with weapon++/cinderbanes and plan on adulteration allowed targets.
Decimation blueprint should already afresh plan on all ranged weapons if you about-face to it (I anticipate it was like that before?). Perhaps, aswell aficionado chinchompa AoE from 3x3 to 5x5 if active.
Nox bow (and all nox weapons in fact) should accept its blueprint reworked. Accepted blueprint is appealing abortive in about any bearings and even if it is advantageous it's not account the 100% adren cost. Araxyte arrows should do something abroad added than just t90 damage.
(Superior) Morrigan's axe should accept its own aftereffect on PvM mobs. Currently its PvP aftereffect is to achieve the ambition cesspool run activity at 4x the rate. Perhaps a appropriate aftereffect is to achieve ranged hits administer added drain furnishings for the aforementioned bulk of time in PvM (think mutated dazing appearance bleeds).
Ranged skillcape advantage should be afflicted to a 50% adventitious to not absorb ammo instead of the accepted Ava's accessory aftereffect which doesn't even plan properly.
Honestly the absolute ranged action appearance needs a massive rework in some way, appearance or form. I achievement Jagex does something about this in the future!
