We all get the concept of light arrows, its a utility arrow and not a DPS arrow high tier material arrows, but seriously, 1 Damage?!
Funcom should enforce players to not exploit the game in their favor, but they should never restrict our creativity to play the game the way we find FUN! I wouldnt mind sacrificing SOME DPS and use it as primary arrow just to have FUN! So what if it would me cost more materials to craft than a low tier arrow, it would still be fun, even if my DPS rate was slightly reduced!
But the minimum damage on this arrow pretty much ensures -nobody- will ever use it outside its single questionable role, produce a dim light for 20 seconds (most people would rather wait a few minutes until its day again, or grab a sword + torch in a cave)
There is absolute no reason this arrow has 1 damage, its supposed “role” isnt even reasonable enough. It has a very, very limited use and its performance is questionable, add a minimum damage to it and the arrow is pretty much dead. I honestly wonder how many people actually bother carrying these arrows AND using them. I always keep a stack in my inventory and hardly ever use it, there have been a few situations they “helped”, but it just doesnt feel necessary. Their utility just doesnt justify a slot in my limited quickbar, with 1 damage its just trash!
