Re: Solo Pulls
As far as your three options... it really is all of the above, depending on the range and situation. Short range, I open with quick shot. Two mob pull, I use quick shot on the farthest mob (provided he is not ranged) and burn him down while the other rushes to trappy land. Longer range, I will open with Barbed>PS>(I)SB>PS>QS>PS ect. I tend to open with Swift bow on weaker mobs, where front loading a lot of damage will end them fairly quick.

In the 40's it becomes some of the time, in Moria (because of added morale and harsh terrain) it becomes rare, but once you get back out into the open field, you should be able to kill a single normal with an aggressive shot rotation, before it closes to melee from max range. It won't always be in your best interest to do so.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs. [/COLOR] [/CENTER]
