There have been some archery improvements done earlier today.

First up, we added new types of sling stones: woodlander sling stone, fey sling stone, and iron sling stone. Also sling stones can now go up to +3, while the previous limit was +2.

All the different types of ammunition are now better in various ways:
  • Woodlander ammunition is a bit lighter.
  • Fey ammunition has +1 range, making it travel one tile further when fired.
  • Elven arrow/Dwarven bolt/Iron sling stone will have an extra WC point.

Medium (level 7) and large (level 19) archery weapons now have extra damage to make up for them being slower than the small ones. Medium ones get +1 dam, while large ones get +2 dam.

Slings of accuracy can now drop, and fixed the bug where large crossbow and long bow of accuracy were actually worse than regular ones.

Just wondering if archery of accuracy is even worth having in-game, as AG attacks hit 100% of the time (provided the mob doesn't move) ...

They don't hit 100% of the time if the monster's AC is higher than your archery WC (arrow WC + bow WC + AG level if I recall correctly).

Well how often does that happen? So far, every time I've gone to shoot a mob with archery, it hits ...

Of course, I'm not trying to shoot any mobs that are > 10 levels above my top level, but my top level is about 2x my AG level ATM...

I've seen it happen quite often, mostly at higher levels (40+ or so).
