While bow 2 does give you slightly higher damage, it also gives you lower damage. Your minimum damage range drops about 50 points, while your maximum damage range goes up about 60 points. Bow 2 also drops your HP by about 40k. If you like playing the luck game and are lucky (actual luck, not the stat), then go with bow 2. If you want to hedge your bets and not worry to much about if you are going to get higher damage, go with bow 1.

The ACTUAL game damage of Bow 1 will be a little higher than stated due to the 40 extra points in your prime stat. That doesn't change anything about Bullbound's response though. I think he's got it nailed.
I would try Bow 2 and see if you like it. 40% Crit rate is quite good, and your class is in a very good position to take advantage of it. (Long battles = more attacks)

Bow 1 With the all + stats is always nice, however, with Bow 2, you only loose 4000 HP yet, you have doubled your Luck. Also, Damage on both bows do not change much, yet it's average is higher. I like the stats on Bow 2! Even though I usually stick with a primary stat weapon which I am sure you will find before the vote poll is over! Happy Gaming!

Thanks to everyone!
Thanks to everyone for your help.
I think I'll stick to Bow 1. Should I sell the Bow 2? (it's selling price is twice as much as Bow 1). Can it be of any other use to me?

You can always hold it in your backpack inventory as stashed cash! And not sell it right now! As well, just in case you thought you had a better weapon choosing Bow 1. When I am faced with a second Weapon I am not sure of, I never sell it right away until either I am sure I chose the correct one, or until a third and better weapon comes along! Just food for thought!
