    I haven't gotten much experience with crossbows in general, but I've been having issues with using bows lately and want to give it a spin. Is the Lightning path really the best bet, or should I go Standard with Heavy Bolts?

    I like the lightning path, it hasn't failed me yet.

    Honestly i'd just play with mugenmonkey to figure out what does the best damage.

    Keep in mind that most gears have terrible lightning defense, unless they are really heavy.

    Well I'm asking out of interest. All lightning gives me 389 split, while Standard + Heavy gives me 293 pure physical. I'm not entirely sure what works better, because I never really tested it.

    @Wulf Crossbows don't scale, so the only stats I have to worry about are the basics.

    It's a very minuscule amount like 1-2 points of extra damage

    Lightning looks cooler!
    From my encounters with Avelyn, it has always been :weap-lightning:  I've not messed with crossbows though so I can't say what I prefer.
