Balanced fire arrows idea
Copy pasted from the thread on the general discussion.
You could have the ability to light two or three arrows on fire. Push 3 to jam or wrap some oil soaked fabric around the arrow. Then lights it on fire. And make it so you hae to push 3 when the bow is drawn for the guy to do that.
Make the arrow speed and impact damage a lot less. Overall It will deal more damage than a normal arrow itself. It could be useful when using a bodkin against an archer or using a broadhead against a knight or vanguard.
But you can only use 3 of them and your ammo count is reduced by 20%. It would add two more options to the archer thing and they already have the most.
Peter von something or rather put this idea into my head. I expanded on it and came up with this. It would require a new animation for lighting the arrow.
Longer reload times, lower final velocity and limited fire arrows would balance out the total damage output of the flaming arrows.
Im alright with it. +1
