Sorry, but no. You can't order anyone to Fire at Commanders. Because of that, it'd most probably be wasted - except in e.g. arena matches, or assassinations,and we don't need this kind of a weapon for either of those.

Ethereal Crossbow is more balanced version of this. It should be possible to mod the weapon the item gives, to change the precision, range and ammo values to change it, if you wanted. However, I don't think there's point in that.

I agree. Weapons like these are definitely unecessary in the vanilla game, but perhaps you want to make a mod, and you can use it there.

Ah, well that answers that :-)

How about this: It's a one-shot artifact. Once it's used, it's gone until it's forged again by someone. I believe it would be the only one in the whole game. I wonder what gems would be appropriate for it. I was thinking something other than Death, Blood or Astral, since those paths already give lots of assassination capabilities. I was thinking either Air or Nature, or possibly a little bit of all the elements combined.

Well... Vision's Foe is an Arbalest which deals armor-negating damage. Air and Death, but Death is more for the eye loss. Air and Earth for an armor-negating bow with good damage... That could work as an artifact. It could have high Precision (Longbow of Accuracy).

Of course, there's always the "Jotun Sling of Accuracy", dam 3+str and Prec 5... a boulder ammo graphics already exist!

Actually your weapon idea is even hardcore to be added into a mod. I mean this weapon is like using a nuclear bomb to kill a single person.
Also there should be a chance that the weapon just won't hit.

100 precision makes missing pretty rare, barring Air Shield.

Maybe AOE 1 and fire rate 1/turn? that'd be a neat artifact... E2A2 maybe? Powerfull with heroic strength...
