Comparative data against the statement that the 10% boost makes the bow equivalent to t88:
Piercing shot damage vs mage-style dummy
|Weapon||Min Hit||Max Hit||Note|
|Hexhunter (t80 +10%)||744||2189||(w/ 166 str bonus)|
|Dual Ascensions (t90)||734||2156||(w/ 169 str bonus)|
|Decimation (t87)||718||2107||(w/ 166 str bonus)|
|Hexhunter (t80)||685||2004||(w/ 166 str bonus)|
Precise 5 and Equilibrium 2, regular overload, and anguish on in all 3 cases.
Gear setups were roughly a tier 80 slayer loadout. Ascension tester had slightly higher armour bonus since I don't own the weapons. Other tests didn't show any significant change in the ordering of the damage of each setup.
