As much as the bow skill anyway. Seems only half as effective. I have been running around with a 10 dex nephil with 2 in bows and 3 in sharpshooter, and he regularly does half - 2 / 3 the damage of my 2 nephils with 2 dex and 10 in bows and 1 in sharpshooter ( all using cavewood bows ).

I was under the impression that dex, bow skill, and sharpshooter all increased the damage with bows by the same amount, but its clearly not the case in my experience.

I would not be surprised if that were true. Remember that in the previous Avernum games, dexterity only gave half as much bonus. I would be annoyed if Jeff let the description slip up like this, though.

Dexterity does not [EDIT : seem to] increase bow damage in Avernum 4. Strength, on the other hand, may increase it a little, I think.

EDIT : Okay, I think we need an expert to confirm this. :P

Anatomy (and possibly lethal blow) may have something to do with this.

Anatomy and Lethal Blow have no effect on missile weapons.

Thank you. That guy has been bugging the hell out of me. But then again I guess it just wouldn't be the same boards if there wasn't a few trolls.

I believe you meant noobs.

Trolls incite flamewars. Noobs get flames directed at them.
