I was thinking about how limited ranging is, and whenever it gets a revamp, maybe these things could be added.

A new bow;
Ranger's bow
  - Allows more distance; increases light modifier to see targets out of the normal target range- allowing a "snipe" from afar. But that also means less hitting rate, but more EXP on a hit
  - Criticals may be more as the arrow has to be pulled back further to make that distance, but less often as they hit less, and takes more focus to aim, especially to a moving target
  - Possibly have a required ranging level to equip? (Or nexus/attribute (perception?))

More arrow types
Currently we have the base arrow. Which is training after the revamp we could add in the already real arrows; PK, Fire, Ice, Magic. Explosive
BUT maybe instead of "magic" arrows, we have different branches of "magic" arrows such as;
  - Arrow of Paralysis (Does training arrow damage, percent chance to paralyze the hit target)
  - Arrow of Teleportation (allows character to shoot at any given target (or tile!) and teleport to said location
  - Arrow of Healing (Does x amount of damage, takes x% of damage and returns to ranger)
  - Arrow of Poison (When hitting a target, does training arrow damage, but has a percent chance to poison the hit target)
  - Exploding Arrows (AOE (When hitting a specific target (Or object) the arrow explodes on impact doing damage a certain tile radius around))


these are just ideas, how do you think these could be balanced? How would this affect gameplay? Would it make it more interesting for rangers, and even aide in boss battles, or even PK?
Lets hear what you think!

Not going to happen next 5 years.

That being said, there are a ton of ideas for ranging and making a new thread doesn't help. When it comes time to make changes, some ideas may get lost if they are all over the place.

I'd like to see some of those features as features on the bows we already have, rather than creating entirely new ones. Elven bow might have the Ranger perk you discussed for example. Arrow types are a cool idea, but it would seem like they'd have to wait until magic is reworked (for aoe etc).
