    I haven't had the time to log in and check it out yet, but I've got a feeling you're using fine arrows instead of acid arrows. If that's the case, try using an acid transmute bow with acid arrows and lower your archery encumbrance as much as possible and you should be on par with magic dps (or higher with golemslayer enchants).

    did v golem 3 times, Vel drops were
    3
    3
    5

    r60 bow with q2 keen .84 did 23 ish damage, fire bow did the next best adding around 2 damage.
    Bought every kind of the new arrows and with fire arrow I was doing 33 -34 per hit lightening just slightly less all of the others was in the low 20's
    Seems they wanted to make the new arrows more of a factor.

    Will do more testing later after nap time

    seems the vel golems at least are acid based now and not taking much acid damage, they even using earth spells now stead of lightening spells

    It sounds like they fixed mobs having 0 arrow protections (a "bug" that was introduced when piercing and arrow protections were separated).

    just need to use the new arrows, I tested them before and they didn't help at all. One thing I did notice is the debuff from axes and polearms did not increase damage at all. Thought they both added piercing or arrow damage which ever it is

    Boss monsters often have some innate debuff protection which unfortunately screws over these weapons, I'd like to see that removed. Also, they should debuff arrow protection so they function like they did before.

    I get why it was done, from what I could see the new arrows were pretty much useless and now they have a function so will be another sink/solid market item to boost economy. I don't mind it so much although I hate seeing xmutes becomes less useful

    You used to be able to debuff their resistance stat with the necro spell Evil Eye, but it was removed when they pruned some spells. Not reducing mob debuff resistance and nerfing debuffs across the board is really frustrating in PVE

    I like that you regionalised a lot of the high tier enchanting mats by moving the mobs to specific regions. Though with Runebooks I'm not sure how much impact that will have.

    1. Not happy with golem changes, as i have just began the tasks. Not really, just being cheeky.
    2. World map change i dont understand, but whatever.
    3. Regionalization? I hope its good.
