    (The above is the Full power single shot setting)

    It would be interesting to find out which is the most commonly used power seting.

    Personally I use the Half power shot by far the most.

    I would guess my usage is something like

    -20% Quarter power
    -50% Half power
    -20% Full power
    -10% Triple shot

    I was a scrub who didnt know the difference between 3/4 and full shot. I played archer knowing that full shot=better distance and damage. If I had known earlier, I wouldn't be hot wired to only do those.

    Mine's something along the lines of this

    -5% Quarter power
    -15% Half power
    -45% Full power
    -35% Triple Shot

    I've got used to holding the down the mouse for longer than I perhaps should, I can't automatically do Quarter or Half shots ::(:

    Ah that is really interesting.

    I had to train myself to switch from mainly Full power ones to Half power. You get a lot more useful shots off this way.

    Half shots are the bread n butter for quick damage and combined with full shot for varied arrow rain, full shots are reserved for kill shots/arrow rain/stuns, quarter shots for close quarter ( :wink:) mind games and covering choke points from high ground, and triple mostly results in boring play so I don't use it much.

    55 % half
    35 % full
    9.9 % quarter
    0.1 % triple

    Good day :B):

    Half shots are also interesting when you start playing around with different arcs/angle, A fun one is to shoot one half shot above the player then fire another full or half charged arrow directly at them, the beauty of it is that you have now split their attention and can capitalize on any movement mistakes they make.

    At first you will likely split your accuracy as well because your focusing on more varied actions close in succession to each other, just gotta get used to it though!

    Ok I'm done.
