>>What are the ideal ones? I mean, it only has 3, right? FoI, balance, suit. And load time, though not sure if that counts.

All ranged weapons have a base damage multiplier that players cannot see. This goes Sling < Staff sling < Shortbow < Longbow < Compbow < Light Xbow/Stonebow < Heavy Xbow < Arbalest

The ranged weapon's Suitedness is an additional damage multiplier. This exists in ratio with the ranged weapon's load time. Lower load times have less suitedness. They do higher DPS, but less damage per hit so the Player has options on what to use.

Faster hits, slightly higher DPS, does worse against armor, lower chance to stun, less lodge-depth.
Slower hits, slightly lower DPS, does better against armor, higher chance to stun, deeper lodge-depth.

Balance modifies the chance for a fumble/recover. This code may not be active/working yet, but will be soon.

FoI affects stun/knockdown/lodge depth.

Hope that helps clarify things! I struggled to come up with another stat for bows. Given how FoI isn't fully utilized it just didn't make sense at the time.
