Bow and Crossbow Skills

Magic Arrow

Difference from the LoD version
Magic damage is much improved.
Pros
Consumes no arrow. Consumes no mana (at slvl 13+), which is very effective against PI and mana burn monsters. Gives synergy to very many skills.
Cons
Single target skill. Magic damage isn't bad but it's less effective as a single target skill than Legendary Arrow with enough pierce.

Multiple Shot

Difference from the LoD version
Pros
Multiple target attack, great for crowd-clearing
Cons
Big mana-hog at high levels. No benefit comes from raising the skill level above 23, when the maximum number of arrows is reached, but the mana cost continues to go up if the slvl is raised further.
