World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Crossbows – Part 2

This is now the second part of the article series in this website focusing on Crossbows. In the previous article (if you have not read it then scroll down below and find the link to it) you have learned that Crossbows is similar to Bows and Guns (both have their dedicated article series in this website) in many ways. Now, we shall continue discussing the ranged weapons in the game that are very useful for long-distance attacks. So, let us roll it and continue reading this article.


Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting

Added in patch 1.11.1, the Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting is something that many WoW players want to have. The reason behind is not that it is the most powerful crossbow there is in the game (though it is undeniably powerful) but because it has one of the best combination of durability and power. The Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting is a level 77 item that will bind to level 60 players when picked up. It will increase the stamina of the character by as much as 60 and when equipped, it increases the ranged attack power of the character by as much as 36 points. The speed of this WoW crossbow is rated to be at 3.40 which is pretty slow considering its item level; but the power that it packs should not be looked at as small. The Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting can inflict 76.1 damage per second or from 206 to 311 health damage to its target. The durability of Ashjre’thul, Crossbow of Smiting has 90/90 durability rating which is one of the highest given to a crossbow. This WoW item sells for 6 Gold, 2 Silver, and 30 Bronze and was dropped by Chromaggus at the Blackwing Lair.


Barreled Crossbow

The Barreled Crossbow belongs to the stronger upper half of the crossbows line in the game. This WoW item was added to the game realm via patch 2.0.1 and could be bought by players for 5 Gold, 23 Silver, and 95 Bronze. Barreled Crossbow is a level 114 item that only requires players to attain at least the 68th level for it to bind when equipped. Characters bound to the Barreled Crossbow will experience an increase in many of its traits like agility by 17 points, intellect by 17 points, spirit by 17 points, strength by 17 points, and stamina by 25 points. Furthermore, the Barreled Crossbow also has the ability to increase the character’s attack power by 34, critical strike rating by 8, and hit rating by 8. The rated average speed of the Barreled Crossbow is 2.70 which is mediocre for a WoW item but is quite fast enough for a crossbow. It can inflict 80.3 damage per second or from 151 to 282 total health damage to its targets. However, one bad thing about the Barreled Crossbow is its durability as it has one of the weaker ratings in the game when it comes to this special trait.
