I think this and the katana vs longsword might be the two most reposted weaponry videos on this forum.

Oh. Elves appear to be nøøbs.
I find the idea of defending someone who isn't been violently raped unacceptable on moral grounds.

Barely draws back string. What's the poundage on the bow? How much penetration is actually done with such a perfunctory motion? It's dumb to assume this technique is in any way effective in an actual combat scenario. I mean, rivetted chainmail? Seriously?

Barely draws back string.

At the peak of the movement, the draw is at its near maximum, he is just as fast as firing than as drawing :wink:  he pushes the limb as much as he draws the string to accelerate the firing speed. Very impressive technique, as mentioned in the video it is not for newbies thus any talk about implementing this in cRPG would require the player to have a minimum level of 37 to shoot like this :mrgreen:

Penetration power must be quite low like you said mon ami, but against unprotected or badly protected targets I think such a technique would totally own.
