Seemed to me Dragon's Dowry upgraded to max damage/speed buff + fire resistant gear, or Frost Seeker + split arrow. I decided on DD because eeeeh just feels wrong to use bow on a class about guns you know. And it does great damage anyway. Wizards/liches stand no chance against Tranquilizer > accurate shot/whatever.

I got a unique arquebus from Atsura during her companion quest, but it does damage in a line and was killing party members so I stopped using it.

I think it was called Three Bells Chime, or something like that.

Blunderbi?


It's not from Latin so no.

Three Bells Through is great. Not the best by any means, but a fun one.

Three Bells is a good stealth opener for Maia, especially if she is a multiclass rogue

Maia with the frozen bow has done more damage than my sorcerer main. It's one of the best weapons of the game (probably the best ranged one) and you can get it at level 5-6.

I'm abusing the bow while I can, with Driving Flight and Precog. I might setup her alternate as a pistol or two though, on reading this.

I didn't like it because its main attack is a AoE line that can hit friend or foe alike.  I didn't even realize this was happening until I was in a battle where Maia was hitting Eder among others, because she's invariably in the rear of my formations, due to the great range she gets with Arquebusses.   I stopped using 3BT because it was going to be too much micro management to prevent her from hitting friendlies.  I prefer her using a nice, friendly-safe arq. 

 

EDIT: for what it's worth, the 3BT arq might be a good choice for a front liner who wants to get off a good opening strike, since such a character probably never had friendlies in front of them.

I guess that it's just not in me to have a Companion who has a subclass that's gun-based not using a gun.  Hey, if she was a Sharpshooter subclass, I'd probably be all over putting the Frostseeker bow in her hands.  But there's just something ... wrong ... about having a Gunhawk not using a gun, at least to me.  ;(
