Quivers for arrows?

It has been revealed that arrows will be magically infinite. The question now is where will they come from?

Will there be full quivers that match the armor you are wearing (whatever set happens to be on your torso since you can mix and match) when a bow is equipped?

Or will the arrows be conjured like was possible in skyrim?

I think no information on this has been released but what do you all think? Is there another possible option?

As long as it doesn't seem like you're pulling them out of your back like in gw2. Could not play a ranged class because it bothered me so much..

I'm horrified that will happen. I honestly think the conjured arrows would be the best route for them to take but only time will tell

I hope that you can get different quivers for looks, but I doubt that will happen :(

I actually think they'll have quivers. Every elder scrolls games has different types of quivers, I don't think they'll stray from that.

Would I be farfetched in guessing that each bow type/material would have a quiver of arrows to go along with that material? I would assume since arrows are infinite, there is no option to purchase any arrow types, leading me to think that quivers of the same type come with the bow you have. Elven with elven, steel with steel, etc.

I like this idea actually better than either of the two I speculated upon.

Unlimited ammo, didnt think they would have cheat options in an mmoRPG my guess is we are going to be getting another wow clone MMOrpg, another franchise slipping into the depths of the gamers that 'wants it' because they seen someone else with it. self entitlement is a bad thing....we live in that age now.

arrows should be highly sort after and very valuable for rangers...there goes another avenue of trade..

Doubt it'll b a wow clone. Can't see that with the way this game is aiming. But I like that idea of adding a quiver model with the same type arrows as the bow. Just one more model, and it's a pretty simple fix.


Fight for something to die for, because living for nothing really isn't worth it.

To be honest, I agree with Konahrik to a certain degree. I mean, numerous times they've made comparisons to WoW and even said they got some ideas from them. Who's to say it won't be somewhat of a clone of WoW with an Elder Scrolls feel?

Regardless, I'm not all too happy with the fact arrows are infinite. It takes away from the realism of combat. If arrows are infinite, then that means no matter what, when it comes to long range combat, I'll never have to be strategic about my use of arrows. I'd like that challenge. Running out of arrows and having to be faced with having to equip a sword or dagger and engage in close range combat. Alas, hopefully it doesn't take away too much fun from the game itself.

I don't think it's that big of an issue, and it's definitely not something to make too much of a fuss about. Remember, they ARE making an MMO, and so they do have to think about that as well. On the flip side, think about this: how much would it take to make sure that you have a "seemingly" infinite amount of arrows? They are doing the best they can, but to say that it's a wow clone is a bit insulting. It's far from that in every other aspect. Just because they do certain things similar to another game out there doesn't automatically mean that they are copying that game.

I am with you on all of what you said, but I am sure there was some give and take with some features. I am severely bummed about the infinite arrow concept and it may take away from strategy/challenge for sure. I just hope that the actual ranged combat is something to be engaged in to make up for reaching for an endless pool of projectiles.

We really need to play the game, because every damn thread ends up turning into the same thing.
