    So, since I'm too lazy to do testing I'm going to trust you guys that the Lieutenant's Bow (Malestrom) is better than Ifrit's. But here's another question: would getting the other 4 pieces (to get the +30 Attack) be worth it?

    I'm thinking no, but wondering if anyone has done it.

    ^^^ I don't think it is because most of the storm pieces are STR and take up slots that can be used for DEX/PIE. The 30 Attack is not worth it and because you're losing out DEX/PIE you would most likely be weaker going for the bonus.

    It's still much better than Ifrit's bow. ~4 DPS is a significant increase.

    Taught so. Now, from Carraway's Guide thread I got that with Ifrit's Bow you cap DEX at 300 and PIE at 350. Might be asking for too much, but are the caps for the GC bows known? Or should I get testing?

    I don't know if they are known but they are higher than Ifrit's bow since they are based on DPS I believe. I think I heard mention of a calculator somewhere.
