Repeater Rifle vs. Looking Glass Rifle

Since the Looking Glass was nerfed in the last patch, it has become really weak... 20-30 damage is O.K., but it has a speed of 6! The repeater rifle on the other hand does twice as little damage, but has a speed of 19! I can fire 3 times in a round while I can fire only once with a LGR. Can someone please explain to me why is the LGR so high up the tech tree??

edit> This is the 100th post on this board!

Sorry. I was just expressing my joy now that this board has 100 posts.

As for your question, have you tried posting it at TA forum or any other?

No, this is the appropriate forum: an Arcanum question for Arcanum fanatics. :)

Please explain the phrase, "twice as little damage."

Oh, sorry. :D Shouldn't be promoting other sites, right?

@fable: Twice as little damage - if a looking glass rifle makes 10 to 30 damage, then the repeater rifle makes 5 to 15 damage.

@Al: TA is still down, isn't it?

edit> I just tried connecting to TA. It took me 5 minutes to connect to their site. I think I'll just stick to posting here.

@Al, please don't spam these boards. If you have three different posts on pretty much the same subject to make, here, just edit the first post. Thank you. :)

You didn't answer my question, though not obvious. Is it okay, to post the url of the other forums here?

Well... When I bought Arcanum, I didn't know that GameBanshee had an Arcanum board (I havn't checked this site for at least 8 months), so I used a search engine and there it was.
Then after some time I was checking through my bookmarks and saw gamebanshee. At the same time the TA board was closed so I just started posting here.
Hope that was clear enough :) .

edit> Maybe you can just Private Message me the link if fable has anything against posting a link to another forum.
Though I don't think posting the link would be considered advertising...

It just that this forum is not very popular and only has few posts. If I post the url here, Buck/fable might get angry because people are going in the the url I posted instead of here.

If you private message me the link, noone will get angry... :D :D :D

Buck has requested that other forums not be advertised here. I agree, the best suggestion is to email that material.

Very unfair! Of course, I don't mind since I already knew them. :D So I can't even PM Vicsun for the URL?

Elswhere it is okay but not here. Honestly, people are posting things like go to this and that forum or a direct link to see a response to his question. Of course, they are all linked to one another. It's the community of Arcanum we are building up here. If you or Buck won't let us post the URL of the other forums here, why should we even try and redirect them here? I was looking forward to promote this site at the other board by posting my tips here and then had them to go here instead.

@Al - You can PM me the link, as long as you don't post it (since posting = promoting...). At least that's what fable said.

The icon above my message. Right next to "quote" and "edit".
Maybe [url="http://www.gamebanshee.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=private_message&u=00000622"]this[/url] link would PM me...
