**Bow and Crossbow Skills [#x7e18f35]
***Magic Arrow [#k03fac22]
:Difference from the LoD version|Magic damage is much improved.
:Pros|Consumes no arrow. Comsumes 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 less effective as a single target skill than Legendary Arrow with enough pierce. 
-All Attack Rating bonus of bow skills have been removed, because they don't work due to a bug of LoD, but increases the displayed Attack Rating on the character screen.

***Magic Arrow [#ge419e38]
:Required Level|1
:Prerequisites|'''None'''
:Difference from the LoD version|Adds Magic Damage instead of Min/Max Damage. The AR bonus is removed, which doesn't work due to a bug of LoD.
:Pros|Consumes no Arrow. Consumes no Mana after slvl 13 (good against mana burn monsters). Converts slvl% of Physical Damage to Magic Damage (good against PI monsters).
:Cons|Single target skill.

***Cold Arrow [#u025d4dc]
:Difference from the LoD version|
:Required Level|1
:Prerequisites|'''None'''
:Difference from the LoD version|Much improved damage.
:Pros|
:Cons| 
:Notes|From what I (Verbatim) can find in the file guide, cold/poison length per level is not well understood. Cold Arrow adds +1 second at low levels (the file guide's guess is 2-7), +1.2 seconds at mid-levels (guessed to be 8-14), and +1.4 seconds at high levels (guessed to be 15-20...whether that continues after 20 is another matter for investigation). Note that the damage/lvl numbers originally guessed at in the file guide were incorrect, so these probably are as well. If anyone knows better please correct the info here.

***Multiple Shot [#l646b1ca]
:Difference from the LoD version|
:Pros| Multiple target attack, great for crowd-clearing
:Cons| Big mana-hog at high levels. No benefit comes from raising the skill level beyond slvl 23, when the maximum number of arrows is reached, but the mana cost continues to go up if the slvl is raised further.
:Required Level|6
:Prerequisites|'''None'''
:Difference from the LoD version| Up to 4 center arrows trigger CtC skills, instead of 2 center arrows in LoD.
:Pros|Multiple target attack, great for crowd-clearing. Min and Max Damage bonus after slvl 23.
:Cons|Big mana-hog at high levels.

(Both the explosion damage and the patch damage are affected by the synergy.)

: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.

***Immolation Arrow [#h67b7ad2]
:Required Level|18
:Prerequisites|'''Magic Arrow (1), Multiple Shot (6), Exploding Arrow (6)'''
:Difference from the LoD version|The casting timer was removed, making Immolation Arrow a viable skill in Eastern Sun.
:Pros|Multiple pyres 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.

***Legendary Arrow [#d0e8daf3]
:Required Level|24
:Prerequisites|'''Multiple Shot (6), Guided Arrow (18)'''
:Difference from Guided Arrow|Less weapon damage. Hit the target multiple times if the arrow pierces the target. Fixed mana cost.
:Pros|Homing ability. Hitting the target multiple times is very effective with other damage source like elemental damage and Crushing Blow.

:Pros|Fast attack. Triggers CtC spells frequently.
:Cons|The possibility of Strafe Lock (you can't move until all the sequence of Strafe ends).
:Notes|If the number of monsters is greater than or equal to Max#, Strafe fires Max# of arrows. Otherwise Strafe fires as many arrows as monsters, but at least fires Min# of arrows, as long as at least a monster remains.

***Lightning Arrow [#eeb98a89]
:Required Level|30
:Prerequisites|'''Magic Arrow (1), Multiple Shot (6), Exploding Arrow (6), Immolation Arrow (18)'''
:Difference from Lightning Fury (ES)|Less damage. The bolts released on impact has only 2/3 radius. This is because arrows are more spammable than javelins.
:Pros|Numerous lightning bolts are released every time the arrow hits a monster. With a good amount of pierce, very effective against packed monsters. 
:Cons|Ineffective against a single target.
