Arrows interacting with explosions
« on: August 24, 2016, 04:18:25 PM »

Can we reintroduce arrows turning into fireballs after passing through fire / explosions?

I am sort of surprised it hasn't been used as tool for one of the beginner quests.

Thank you for reminding me of it! I have a few ideas where it could be used too...
Though I personally don't think explosions should set things on fire, torches and other burning objects should.

You mean fire blasts.

It's possible to do, though I'd prefer to turn arrows in to fireballs rather than fireblasts that explode. Might be preferable to prevent this within events as well.

Yeah, to be honest I couldn't remember exactly what they turned into and started to second guess myself the second I posted.

I thought about it during an elimination event and thought it might have been a useful tool to move players that were spamming arrows from from certain areas of the room.

Personally I prefer how they worked originally, but adding the functionality of being able to be lit when passing through torches would be a great feature for quests.

It makes more sense for them to turn into fireballs than fireblasts, but is more fun when they turn into fireblasts.

Fireball would also be better because it opens up fireblasts as a bomb arrow combination ala Zelda
