The bow needed to complete M'avina's Battle Hymn
set, the caster is a workable, if somewhat anemic weapon for Hell difficulty. Not ideal for bow builds except those utilizing cold skills a.k.a Frostmaidens, the caster has the unique set bonus of adding 114 to 377 magic dmg to it's attacks upon having two set pieces equipped (counting the bow). In the hands of Frostmaiden builds, this weapon is fantastic when completed with the set, but in the hands of any other build, such as physical dmg bowazons, it is subpar, unless facing non-cold immune mobs or physical immunes. It is recommended to not use this bow unless the character has at least two other pieces of the set equipped, to max out the damage bonuses available with using it. The Nova
on strike proc happens at the point of impact of where an enemy mob is shot when the effect procs, so it can create some nice AoE effects when hitting a clustered group of monsters.
