Bow or Hammer?

    I prefer hammers because charged throws knock captains onto the ground, allowing me to ground execute them or pummel them in the face with Fury. And it also looks cooler to throw a hammer instead of shooting a bow.

    I'm particularly fond of the Hammer of War from the Warmonger tribe. Charged throws create a fire explosion. Utter chaos.

    I agree on the longbow. Well-placed charged shots take out entire mobs. As for knocking them down with the hammer, you can also make a bow headshot and hit them with the sword to knock them down.

    Hammer use more focus and have less ammo (iirc). Plus the AoE isn't that good because as you said you usually don't hit anyone else, and even you do it's just a grunt and they might not even die.

    I use a bow that gives me +damage (about 55% from memory) on poisoned enemies and poisons (55% chance) them on headshots. It does a lot of damage to Captains! I have variants for every element although my poison is the only level 68. I think I have like 13 or 14 ammo.

    Most of all, I really use it for crowd control. Longbows are absolutely amazing at it.

    One of the Warmonger Tribe's Hammer 95% of the time.  

     

    I used to use almost exclusively bows up to lvl 60, wondered why anyone would prefer hammers over them.   But not anymore.

    I like the hammer when Celebrimbor is steady on the ground and the bow when he's midair.  Celebrimbor's arm pulled back to throw the hammer plus Celebrimbor slowly moving through the air makes the targeting awkward for me.  But when using the bow the screen zooms in so wonderfully and makes Celebrimbor's slow downward plummet much less awkward.

    I prefer bows because hammers don't hve tht much elf-shot. All the hammers I get have an elf-shot of 7-13. Bows, however, go all the way to 15 elf-shot.
