Description
Arrowsmith allows you to craft arrows in bundles of 50.
This Dawnguard Edition replaces the Dawnguard arrow crafting recipes with the original Arrowsmith recipes and adds new recipes for Dragonbone Arrows and the various Crossbow Bolts.

** Dawnguard DLC REQUIRED! **
If you don't have Dawnguard use the Vanilla Edition

Do not use both editions at the same time.

HOW TO INSTALL
Click the Subscribe button above.
Skyrim's launcher will automatically download the mod.
Click Data Files in the launcher and checkmark Arrowsmith-Dawnguard.esp.

FAQ
Q: Why did you make a Dawnguard version if Dawnguard already has arrow crafting?
A: Several reasons:
1. To rebalance the arrow crafting. Arrowsmith: Dawnguard Edition makes the more powerful arrows a little harder to get, requiring rare or expensive materials to make them.
2. Arrowsmith also adds recipes for Ancient Nord Arrows and Nord Hero Arrows.
3. Arrowsmith also requires fletchings for most arrows and adds several ways to get them.
4. Some players who used the Vanilla Edition asked for it.

Q: If sided with the Vampires can I still make crossbows and bolts?
A: Yes, with this mod you can.
If you haven't completed the quest Destroying the Dawnguard, do the side quests for the Vampires (ask them for work) until you get the quest. Then kill Sorine Jurard (required to complete the quest) and loot Sorine's Journal from her dead body.
If you completed the quest before loading this mod (or updating to v.3d) then return to Fort Dawnguard and find Sorine's Journal on a shelf near the smelter and workbench.
Read Sorine's Journal to learn the recipes. You still need the Steel Smithing and Dwarven Smithing perks to craft the crossbows and bolts.

For the rest of the FAQ see the Vanilla Edition's FAQ
Steam Workshop has a character limit on the descriptions and I can't fit the entire FAQ here.

I like it but I hate that I need to talk to someone in a special DLC quest to get the ability to craft these things it should be unlocked as I learn smithing.

So if i use this mode I dont not need to go to Fort Dawnguard to make the Exploding Bolt? :D

Oh really? That is awesome, thanks.

If you're using this mod, you can safely pluck them by 'talking' to the chicken with E (or whatever your use/talk button is).

Are you serious? Killing a chicken is a DEATH SENTENCE!!!!
Samutz  [author] Jan 19 @ 2:58pm 
@[H*R] Sir Duff of Chuffington ®
There's always chicken feathers if you need easier materials for fletchings.
[H*R] Duff ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ Jan 19 @ 2:37pm 
Cheers I'll give that a go. Spending arrows to get feathers for fletching, I can see this becoming a full-time job!

I like to kill the hawks at the Solitude docks.
[H*R] Duff ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ Jan 19 @ 1:55pm
