With the lifetaker: it says multiple shot x3, is that 3 shots or 6?
And why does everyone equip a lvl 4 sorc with it?
Sorry for the newbie question, still quite new.

Thanks

If it was 6 shots, it'd be multiple shot x6, not x3.

As to why... because they have a lord level character with a large points allowance for magical items, so she can afford the bow as well as whatever arcane items she has. Lord-level combat characters want to get into combat, so a missile weapon is useful for fewer turns for them, whereas a sorceress doesn't want to get into combat, so a good missile weapon boosts her ranged power and is used more often.

If I recall the Lifetaker always hits on a 2 so the BS of the user which is 4 for a supreme sorceress doesn't matter whereas placing it on a combat oriented character would reduce the value of the item since he might be hitting on 2s anyway.

The reason that it is good, Is this, It has a 30'' range, 3 shots ST 4 it hit's on a 2+ meaning no modifieds for long range or cover or skirmishers, and the attacks count as Magical.

Life taker also gives a sorceress something to do during the shooting phase other than applying dark makeup.
