    So, love that poisoned arrows are being worked on, and for multi-shot attacks it will only apply to the first shot. Given how those higher level ranged attacks work, makes absolute sense.... even though it should be possible to stock a quiver chock-full of poison arrows. Fair compromise to prevent it from being OP...

    That concession aside; some things to consider as you (@Chris) explore showing us archers more love:

    • Fire Arrows:
      • Rather than an ignite weapon spell, would love to be able to (with an arrow notched in manual attack mode) go to a fire source and ignite that shot.
    • Custom Arrowheads w/ special effects
      • Blunt - stun target
      • Broadhead / barbed - bleeding damage over time
      • Grabbing - pull target (similar to the chaos + gust spell yank)
      • Bullet - faster firing speed/hit to dmg.

        P.S. Added bonus; revisit clockwork compound bows? Eventually? Maybe? I can wait.

    I hate compound bows with a passion, they are never balanced right >.<

    Honestly, this is a complaint with any fantasy game out there. I personally love the idea of being an archer, I always end up going melee though. Bows are some of the most versatile weapons, while being able to of course shoot arrows, you should be able to parry with a bow. But you should be able to do much more, using different arrow type of course. Although, one thing that a lot of games lack, that would make playing an archer a lot more enjoyable, is giving them the ability to shoot a rope up a structure, and then proceed to climb up, or even shoot a rope across a ravine, and then swing across.

    Archer, Ranger, call it what you like being able to hit a target and not get hit your self is really appealing to me and how I like to play.
    However when compared to other melee fighters who seem to have an endless variety of one and two handed weapons to choose from.

    I have three, short bow, long bow and crossbow.

    I have a collection of different swords, axes, hammers etc on my wall in my house, there must be at least 30 of them and I'm sure there are more still.
    It is my choice to be an Archer, to have to carry a pile of arrows at all times but the bows I can use seems so limiting compared to others.

    I would also like to see at least one bow available on the store.

    Given the performance kobold archers show?
    Probably worse!

    OT: Since Morrowind via Mods, the archery in TES games has been amazing and my go-to for archery RPG fixes. Complete with custom arrows/arrowheads, etc. Should check out some of the archery mods on the Nexus for the TES games. Different style of game, but was absolutely amazing what the community added to enhance a pretty sick system that made playing a archer hella fun.
