Arrow Damage Decrease

This mod decreases the damage of all arrows and bows in the game to the point where they're not super overpowered.

Being a high level, arrows kill me in almost a hit. At level 81, a guard does around 800 damage to me with his bow, compared to around 50 damage with his sword. NPCs shouldn't be doing 16x more damage with their bows.

This mod also changes the damage of your arrows and bows. It's not recommended to use this mod if you use the vanilla arrows or bows. If you use modded or DLC arrows and bows you should be perfectly fine.

Alternate, lighter version available on the Skyrim Nexus page:

Arrows are not OP? Really? Ok, I like to run around in light armor, difficulty at normal, and no command cheats to make my health super high. I can take dual wielding berzerkers, Barbarians using geat axes the size of my grand mother, none of their whimpy flailing even taps my health bar enough for me to care being as I roll resto, but one fucking crit arrow and I'm insta-dead? are you shitting me? if this was gonna be realistic, like you guys think it should be, find a mod to fix melee so a iron sword can kill in one blow and cause you to bleed out if you survive the inital hit. You'd be lucky to have survived a dagger stab realistically, so quit whine about realism in a game where you can kill dragons with sith lighting.

This is a needed change for mages at high level. Thank you. Don't listen to the idiots crying about "balance" in a SINGLE PLAYER game. If arrow damage is one-shottting you despite you doing your best to boost HP and armor, and it is detracting from your enjoyment of this game, get this mod. If you are having fun despite arrows doing tons of damage, then don't download the mod. I, for one, will be getting this.

Then you're either not a high level or have very high armor rating.
