The Archer's Arsenal ~ Special Arrows and More! (v1.5)

-- No Requirements :D --

The life of an archer in Skyrim can be rather boring and monotonous. Shoot, kill, shoot, get the point.

The Archer's Arsenal is a lore-friendly mod that aims to enrich the skill of archery, providing more ways to get around your enemy, each with their own pros and cons.
Now archers have the ability to poison, burn and blind their enemies, among other methods attributed to the various new arrow types provided in this mod, with MANY more on the way!

- Note to those moaning that arrows are too expensive; each arrow is precious, this mod would be wayy OP if the explosive arrows and others were cheap.

Currently available arrows:
- Explosive Arrows
- Magelight Arrows
- Paralysis Arrows
- Poison Arrows
- Soul Trap Arrows
- Superheavy Arrows
- Superlight Arrows

All arrows can be obtained:
- From Fletcher in Solitude or The Drunken Huntsman in Whiterun
- As loot, from both chests and enemies
- Through crafting at any Blacksmith's Forge

@Everyone asking me to remesh/retexture the arrows
This is a big task as I cannot simply repaint the arrows, I would have to create a new model for each type and implement those models into the game! If someone would like to collaborate with me on this mod I would greatly appreciate your help!

This mod is also available on the Nexus:

This is my first mod for Skyrim, so all feedback is greatly welcomed and encouraged!

Please rate my mod generously too as I spent a lot of time on this!

If you have any questions feel free to message me!

This mod is so annoying, when I run out of any arrow, it switches to the magic arrows and it always wastes arrows of don't want to use

Great mod! Now my Garrett can actually shoot fire arrows :-D

The only complaint is that soul trap arrows do not trap souls every time. I shot a bear, a goat, a wolf and an elk, and only the wolf didn't "resist soul trap". :/

Not sure if it's just me or not, but my soul trap arrows don't trap souls :/

Fantastic mod. Only problem is that superlight and superheavy arrows are far too easy to craft. You can just save up steel arrows and mass produce superheavy/light arrows and gain all the levels. i saved all the steel arrows i could and at one point, i gained 20+ levels of smithing only from making superheavy/light arrows
