How to get Bows and master them in Diablo 4
Delving into the treacherous world of Diablo 4 requires cunning and skill, but bows help too. As a fan of ranged combat, my preferred weapon of choice is the trusty bow. In this guide, I’ll share insights on acquiring and honing your bow skills in Diablo 4.
How to get Bows in Diablo 4
To embark on your bow-wielding adventure, you’ll need to create a Rogue character. The Rogue class starts the game equipped with a bow, eliminating the need for a scavenger hunt to find one. Bows, a versatile weapon type in Diablo 4, can only be wielded by the Rogue class.
At present, no other class possesses the proficiency to utilize bows. However, it’s worth noting that additional classes with bow capabilities may be introduced in future updates. For Rogues, the ability to seamlessly switch weapons and between melee and ranged attacks provides a strategic advantage, particularly when facing aggressive foes like The Butcher.
How to increase Bow Skills in Diablo 4
To maximize your prowess with the bow, invest skill points in the Marksman skills found in the Rogue skill tree. These valuable skills can be assigned to your Hotbar for swift access during intense battles. While Marksman skills also apply to the crossbow, it’s important to consider that crossbows possess a slower fire rate compared to bows.
The Marksman skills not only amplify your offensive capabilities but also serve as an effective deterrent against enemies attempting to close the distance.
We know it’s hard not to choose stealth archer, especially after Skyrim, but upgrade your skills based on what you like to use. Not every skill works for every player, some are there just to give variety.
For those who share our unyielding passion for bows, crafting a Rogue character allows you to showcase your exceptional marksmanship throughout the realms of Sanctuary.
