Here is the bow that I picked up before I entered Outland.
This is the bow I got from a quest reward in Hellfire. Notice the critical chance rating? 0%.
What’s wrong with my crit chance? I panicked. I thought about writing to good ol’ Big Red Kitty. I thought I discovered something borked. Maybe Blizzard screwed up Outlands when they made Northend. “Maybe it’s because I don’t have a scope equipped,” I thought.
My first night in Hellfire I was so pissed I logged out. There was also a horde with a White Doggy of Doom hunting alliance for no reason.
I thought wrong. I left Outlands the next day. Flew to Stormwind to sell stuff on the AH. Then headed out to Burning Steppes so I could do a mining run. I forgot about switching out my supposedly new bow and started to fire away at some worgs and scorpions…

Lesson learned. I picked up a nifty new crossbow. When did I learn how to use a crossbow? Like 40 levels ago in Stormwind. Luckily I picked up the ability when I did.
‘Til next time…
