Sling of Everard & Tansheron's Bow
I recently went and did a little shopping for my characters, and bought the Sling of Everard for Neera, and Tansheron's Bow for Nalia (who will be stripped to her robes and left in the middle of nowhere when Imoen becomes available...).
My question is, how exactly do these weapons work? The Sling claims to be a +5 weapon that shoots bullets when no bullets are attached, and the bow has the same effect, except it's +3. Currently, Neera has Arla's Dragonbane +3, and Nalia has a simple shortbow +2, but when I go to equip their new weapons, which I thought would be better for them, their damage and THAC0 ratings decrease. Is there something I'm missing? Perhaps I just don't understand the mechanics properly?
