The answer to that really depends on what you`re trying to feather. Fire arrows are crap in Demon ruins and Lost Izalith, but probably better for Catacombs and Tomb of Giants than their large unburning brethren.
large arrows are a good regular use arrow, but really most of the damage comes from the bow anyway. upgrade the hell out of whichever bow takes your fancy (composite for damage, pharis for range, longbow for a happy medium) and don't worrk about it too much

I think the best its Dragonhunter bow, and he needs his own special arrow type. But is really powerful.
yeah if the dude can't afford moonlight arrows there's no way he's feeding a dragon arrow habit
Dragonslayer Greatbow is nice for an initial attack on a long range target or when shooting from a safe position but I find the animation takes to long for use as a main weapon. Then again it`s basically a man-portable ballista.
Edit: C`mon, they only cost 250 souls each. Half a moonlight arrow.
Second Edit: It always struck me as weird that the composite bow has less range than the longbow, which not a longbow at all. Too short.

I just checked, you`re right. Don`t know why I had them listed at 250 mentally.

i can afford all arrows besides moonlight and dragonslayer, i am using a lightning shortbow +5 as i only have 12 dex for my build and wanted a compromise between damage and range.

the reason i want the best arrows is to make up for the lack of damage the short bow does compared to all others
You seriously don`t have 3 SL to invest in Dex for a better bow ? You must be running a really strict build.

ive worked it out so that by the time i have 40 faith, ill be soul level 100, which is where i want to stay

50 faith*
you should, in almost every case, stop at 40 because the returns become so diminished as to be nearly worthless. like, 50 faith will probably add a bit more damage to miracles and faith weapons, i guess, but not nearly enough to justify the investment.

sunlight spear :)
yeah that's the "almost" in almost every case, nevermind, carry on
