I don't think that the -1 penalty is that appropriate. How about a disadvantage to range attack within 15-30 feet range? It would give the feeling that you should only use these arrows for long range shots. Azernath (talk) 12:34, 21 August 2016 (MDT)

That's fine, good call. Marasmusine (talk) 13:05, 27 August 2016 (MDT)
There isn't currently any way you can alter the range of ranged weapons by 1st party material, so I am unsure of the viability of this becoming a quality article. Questions like, how balanced is extra range, what should the item cost, and should PC's even be allowed to extend the range of their weapons pop into my head as issues that may need to be addressed.--Blobby383b (talk) 17:56, 28 April 2018 (MDT)
Also, just realized that the downside to using these arrows is realistically non-existent, since you can just say that you pull out a regular arrow instead of a flight arrow when you are within 30 feet of target.--Blobby383b (talk) 18:21, 28 April 2018 (MDT)
i agree with what Azernath said in my opinion it should not be featured --Flame19 (talk) 09:04, 1 May 2018 (MDT)
  • Support I like the idea of a lighter, more expensive arrow being able to go further. Almost like it is masterwork quality. While I am not sure about the balance of range vs cost, I still like the idea of this article and them circumventing the disadvantage with regular I don't see issue with. Player just manages resources, map positioning, etc. Perhaps the first details get sorted before the discussion period of this QA nomination is over. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:46, 1 May 2018 (MDT)
