Now, now, no need to make the thing useless. That's a knee-jerk reaction, the kinda thing that Blizzard is famous for.Yeah they should nerf it to 20 damage or reduce firing speed
Doesn't matter if you buff the mimic, or even lower the drop rate (since the Dart Pistol/Rifle are similarly OP from what people are saying), it more sounds like the Darts and the Stormbow are mostly intended to be that powerful, though perhaps a little over the top, so I propose mild nerfs (-5 or so damage) and then buffing 1.1 items so that we have some better balance as I mentioned above.I was thinking rather than nerfing the bow buffing the mimic or lowering drop rate.
I think the power of the Stormbow and perhaps the Dart guns are a little over the top, but not so bad we need to smash them into the ground. I think, the problem is more the lack of balance and progression, and it is more than just the Bow and Dart guns; as I mentioned earlier, the Fishing weapons put some of the other early hardmode weapons to shame.
So what do we do, nerf all of those too?
No, I think buffing the older stuff is a better answer.
