Since everyone is complaining about chargebows getting nerfed when paired with arrows of lower tier, the simpleast solution is revert the bow/arrow mechanic back to what it was before - total bow damage = bow + arrow damage. No need to screw around with that.

Instead, after reverting, turn all chargebows into normal bows that require arrows.

Eg: Seren God bow now needs arrows to function as it is no longer a chargebow. It can theefore be paired with blackstone arrows.

What about crystal bows, attuned crystal bows and zaryte bow?

Good point:

Seija shall provide you all with a new type of arrow:

Level 70 crystal arrows dropped exclusively by elves within and outside of Priffdinas
Level 80 attuned crystal arrows dropped exclusively by Tarddiad elves
Level 80 zaryte arrows dropped exclusively by Nex

This gets rid of the problem where tier 92 arrows dont get used with seren godbow.

TBH though, it baffles even me why Ambassador drops crossbow pieces that cannot be used with his ammo drops: blackstone arrows.

Discuss!

Decimation, tier 87 would then need pairing with t87 arrows too.


Thank you for reminding me:

Decimation arrows: T87 arrows that have a chance to kill your opponent in one hit. Does not work on non quest related bosses and players.

Did you not pay any attention whatsoever to the update? none of the chargebows require arrows..they are made so they're optional to be used with arrows...soul purpose is so you can use the effects of certain arrows (such as black stone arrows) along with chargebows such as SGB...you can run any chargebows without any arrows like normal before update.

Yeah, and my idea was to make arrows non optional

No.

The point of chargebows is so that you don't have to use arrows.
At the same time, this was their Achilles Heel as it meant that for some players, they couldn't use their best accessible weapon in some scenarios (ie: Rune Dragons that need Bane ammo)

Now, the Chargebows actually become one of the more versatile weapons in game.

In addition, there really are only a handful of chargebows:
- The 2 Lvl 1 Chargebows (noob and Kayle's)
- Lvl 5 Quickbow
- Lvl 55 Gravite
- Lvl 70 Crystal
- Lvl 80 Attuned Crystal
- Lvl 80 Zartyte
- Lvl 87 Decimation
- Lvl 92 Seren
- Lvl 90 Hellfire Bow, though limited to Wildy

The first 4, you're not going to waste arrows on because they are noob or the Gravite is BiS for F2P with not contempary arrows for the slot (P2P would bypass 55 ranged pretty quick to move on to the next bow).
Hellfire Bow is limited to the Wilderness.
Decimation is cute, but it is still tied to a minigame that is about to removed, and tbd if it's value is going to go up.
