  • Bow quality

    Hey folks. Does the quality of a bow mean much? I thinking from a 'It's the arrows that do the damage.' POV

    Cheers.

    I think bow quality lowers your success. Arrows do the damage. Test it and report your findings?

      Thanks. I'm still just hitting a target with crappy arrows, but I'll let you know.

          So an average quality bow is just heavier than an excellent quality bow? Odd... but sure. I've seen stranger things.
          A woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome says to a ram in Cineran, "Oh yes, hit me now, you bad bad bad sheep."
          A woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome is stunned.

            No, it isn't just lighter. It is lighter INSTEAD of more damage. But the success bonus is still there. I think superior quality reduces success by 5 or something like that. But because bows don't have a damage modifier they don't have bonus damage so instead they give it reduced weight and volume. But the success bonus is still there.

              That's good to know. Eva gave me a really good one after I dropped mine and lost it.

              Thanks.

                Arrows have a quality too. Have you actually tested this? It seems doubtful anything other than the item "bow" is different, hence the weight and volume change. The problem with this was that the arrow is actually the weapon to keep unique damage modifiers (bronze, iron, barbed etc.). It would be strange to see the success changed if there is nothing else coming from the bow.

                  Yes I've tested it.
