Well... I used to just stock up on one type of arrow... then I kept finding more and more arrows of different types... and today when I was over-encumbered I went to my inventory and realized I had a pack rat problem....

I guess I just like to have various arrows for any situation... I am a bit cheap so I usually stick with the steel arrows, but I just like to know I have the dwarven/elven/ebony arrows just incase I need the extra damage :\.

Anybody else have this problem?

EDIT: And I just did some quick math, and these arrows are taking up over half of my weight :\.

just ditch the low armor arrows, steel, silver and dwarven. nice bow btw, mod it with a siggel (unless you dont have a good one that increases dmg)

Thought about it... but I go more for constant effects... got a +12 speed ring and +10 strength necklace right now.. I just don't like the charge system, and this dang bow already costs a ton to keep it up... might have to take up armorer lol.

Right now I'm carrying about 500 arrows of various sorts. About half are silver so I don't have to carry a silver sword for ghosts and etc.

I have a nice magic bow but I agree that it costs way to much to keep it charged. I stopped carrying it when I got my first elven bow. The hitpoints are close enough and I can repair it myself.

I gave up on bow and arrows. I guess my marksman skill level is not high enough so all of my shots do about 8-9 damage.

Instead for long range fights I use a lighting attack that does 50 damage and causes 100% weakness to shock.

I carry a couple of daedric arrows (~40) for novelty...

Sorry for the noobish question but how do you recharge a bow?
I got a nice bow from my assain job but i have no clue how i recharge it once it's ran out of charges.
Also that siggle that was mentioned above? Where do you get that and how do you modify. I am still very green - was busy modding the game to make it look like i want to. Now i am actually playing it. ;)

I carry maybe 50 at a time. 20-30 steel, then a few silver, elven and dwarven.

I take them back any time I can get them so I never really seem to run out. I think I only ever bought one bunch of 50, I've just been using ones I find and reusing ones I fire.

mustrum, this is directly out of the manual (they say it best):
Service providers at the mages guild recharge items for a fee. You can also recharge magic items yourself using filled Soul Gems or Varla Stones.

I dont know if I ever found anyone that recharges magic items (havent looked much) but the soul gem method works alright. I dont have soul trap though, so I've just been using a few as I come across them.

Hehe maybe i should check out the manual by chance. I usually don't touch em since they are 99% useless. ;)

This one actually helps a lot.

I played the game with the manual sitting on my lap for the first 4 or 5 days.

might have to take up armorer lol.
LMAO, this is what I am deperatly trying to increase now that I modded my Daedric Bow. I can't fix it till I gat better at armory and it cost so dam much at a smiths, they over charge way to much lol.

I use an ebony bow for the time being, getting into as many fights as possably, so boring but I have no choce :(.

also, my glass arrows have 12 armor penetration and yous have 14 :s, there must be difernt types of the same arrow.

also, what ever you do, DO NOT drop your modded wepon that you did with a siggy. I think there is a bug in it as I am nolonger able to pick it up. Its my bow and I got the siggy and I modded it and it says I cant pick it up cos its not mine WTF. I was proud of that bow. It was an ebony bow with 20 HP dmg mod.

First go to a mages guild house and there will be people in there that can recharge your weopns at a stupidly high price.

Siggle's are taken fron the oblivion gates, its what you take to close tham. There a some realy good mods from them. I have a bow with 15HP dmg per shot. Just click on the siggle in yout inventory and pick a wepon or clothing etc to mod. they usually come in 2's. one for wepons and on for armor/jewelry.

It actually tells you you cant pick it up? Or it has a red hand icon on it?

Also, the damage done by arrows changes as your marksmanship increases.

I think the damage thing could be marksmanship... mine is currently at 100 or 101 (with a mod, obviously)... pretty sure that mods the damage.

EDIT: HURRAY FOR NOT READING THE OTHER POSTS! lol... sorry :\

I am about... 55-60 hours in on this character... saved up a ton of money since I didn't spend it much since I found everything I needed pretty much, and picked up anything worth a decent amount... I blew a lot of it though... bought the house in Skingrad... very glad I did too... the house is awesome and the "reward" is very good... Life Detect FTW!

I never buy arrows and they're all I use. I guess I'm really meticulous about picking them up everywhere especially from my enemies' bodies after I shoot them.

Could you tell me what mod you used for your inventory and where's the best place to find good mods so far? Thanks!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/DangeRR/bow2.jpg

its very strange not being able to pick it up, Its my bow, I earned it.

My marks is 85 journeyman. I should be able to pick it up. (I have no marks mods)
