Is there a non-DPS reason to favour a crossbow/hand crossbow/bow?

The idea of a bow in each hand barrelling into the depths of Hell has an appeal reminiscent of an old gun slinger movie, six shooter in both hands.

How do I increase my chances of finding the Liquid Rainbow, Gibbering Gemstone, and other Staff of Herding reagent drops?

The Staff of Herding’s specific reagents are rare drops, specifically Act 2’s Liquid Rainbow and Act 3’s Gibbering Gemstone. My friends and I have already spent hours farming these to no avail.
