**Bow and Crossbow Skills [#x7e18f35]
***Magic Arrow [#k03fac22]
:Difference from the LoD version|Magic damage is much improved.
:Pros|Consumes no arrow. Consumes no mana (at slvl 13+), which is very effective against PI and mana burn monsters. Gives synergy to very many skills.
:Cons|Single target skill. Magic damage isn't bad but it's less effective as a single target skill than Legendary Arrow with enough pierce.

***Multiple Shot [#l646b1ca]
:Difference from the LoD version| 3 center arrows trigger CtC skills, instead of 2 center arrows in LoD.
:Pros| Multiple target attack, great for crowd-clearing
:Cons| Big mana-hog at high levels. No benefit comes from raising the skill level above 23, when the maximum number of arrows is reached, but the mana cost continues to go up if the slvl is raised further.

***Immolation Arrow [#h67b7ad2]
:Difference from the LoD version|The casting timer was removed, making Immolation Arrow a viable skill in Eastern Sun.
:Pros|Multiple pires can be stacked on top of each other, creating a hot spot of intense damage.
:Cons|Less immediate explosion damage than Exploding Arrow, fast moving monsters may escape the area of the pire.
:Notes|The damage per second listed here is the same or close to that listed in the skill description (with no synergies). Whether the damage displayed is correct or triple the amount of damage actually done is under investigation. It's possible the amount of "damage per second" displayed in the skill description is actually the total damage dealt over the total duration of the fire patch, similar to the damage displayed for poison skills...if that is the case, the numbers here and in the skill description in-game will be triple the actual damage dealt (With the hitshift and amounts of damage used in skills.txt, one would expect the damage dealt to be 1/3rd of what the skill description lists...either the skill description is wrong, or there is a hidden multiplier). Note that the fire explosion damage is accurate, only the damage per second is under investigation. I'll update this note when I've had time to do the necessary testing. (Verbatim)

:|Update(2006.10.02): I've determined the multiplier is probably not the 3 second duration, since changing the duration has no effect on the displayed damage...it also has no effect on the displayed duration (the display still says 3 seconds, even when I increase the duration to 4 seconds), so it's still a bit inconclusive...I'll do real DOT testing in multiplayer next, to see what the actual damage is.

***Lightning Arrow [#yd89aa6e]
:A new ES skill|
:Pros|
:Cons|
:Notes|The display of Lightning Arrow erroneously lists its damage as being reduced to 3/4 of the normal damage. In fact, 100% of weapon damage is delivered by the arrow, and no weapon damage is delivered by the bolts. It appears that the skill is working as intended, and the 3/4 damage message is displayed by mistake.

:Notes|Strafe will not fire its maximum number of arrows if there is only one monster in range. The number of arrows it fires goes up based on how many actual hard points have been placed in the skill.
