    Title: Arrows that stick in things sometimes turn giant, like spear size
    Reproduction Rate: Sometimes
    Blocker?No
    Details: I've seen this a few times previously, on other nights. Today it really struck me and I was sure, a wolf was getting hit from the side by a party member and the arrows were giant, like the size of spears. He was running around fighting with them sticking out.

    As the arrows flew, they weren't huge, just once they hit.

    Steps to Reproduce:Shoot arrows into things until huge ones happen. Not sure the trigger. Things that didn't work: Shooting more wolves. Getting the wolves to be 90 degree offset, so it was getting hit in the side like the first time.

    Shooting into any things? Not just particular mobs?
    We have a bug open for arrows scaling up to the size of the mob.
    @Vladamir Begemot
    If you were to give the reproduction rate a percentage number, what would you give it?

    Low percentage, but when it happens it happens a whole bunch to the same creature. So I don't see it for days, weeks maybe, then all of a sudden one wolf is full of 20 spears instead of arrows.

    Hmmmm.... I'll run up there again and kill every wolf and see if its a specific one.

    (This is an example of me not wanting to duplicate but doing so anyway, I DID do a search before entering this bug.)

    Well, it may not be a duplicate! Sounds like it wasn't a large mob, like a troll...
    And you make a good point, I wonder if it is a specific one. Thanks so much :)

    Went back and shot arrows into each of the wolves in that area, didn't get it to happen again.

    Just had 2 of us see arrows turn big when hitting the Troll in Nightshade Pass. It was only for a small section of the battle, before and after they were normal.

    One more in a timberwolf in Nightshade Pass. Maybe it's level specific?

    @Lexie Same area in Nightshade pass, near the bandit camp by the East entrance. This time one friend saw them go into a bandit, and right afterward another friend got them shot into him by a bandit. So 2 different types of shooters, NPC and Player, and vice versa on targets, and none were wolves.

    I think that they both happened at very near the same time is something to pay attention to.

    Yes. And it appears to be hard to find the reason, so that's the purpose of continuing to post new data.

    Not disagreeing, just pointing out this has been going on for some time. I believe bug numbers were already assigned.
