I would like to suggest changing some stuff regarding the current archery system until the “Real” archery system is implemented.
First. Arrows feel like they fly to slow in the game. The system say it moves at 200 meters a second but it looks more like 100 meter per second. (Please correct me if i’m wrong?) There should also be different speeds on different bows.
Second. Damage is to low and it looks like damage is the same no matter where you hit the NPC on it’s body. This is some what disappointing and makes archery more or less useless.
Third. Crafting arrows is to expensive and to much of a pain. Changing the amount to 10x of the current amount you get would fix this.
Fourth. Block with bow! You have to be able to use your bow to block with. This should be at the cost of a lot of bow durability of curse. Like a last resort you can do if you have to.
Fifth. Addition of a Quiver for faster draw and less weight on arrows. This is something that should already be in the game!
Please take in to consideration that this is something that is needed now to make archery useful and fun again. I would also suggest reworking the stats bonuses for archery.
Please tell me what people think about this?
