    What type of damage do arrows do?

    From looking at one of the old darkfall wiki's, it looks like there's a damage type called, "Arrow", but none of the armors show anything for arrow protection. Also, Furia's spreadsheet doesn't list arrow for any of the protections on armor either.

    What do you mean? Arrow protections are listed both on the armor and paperdoll.

    That spreadsheet is outdated in this instance.

    Could've sworn the damage was changed to piercing, and they had to add fine arrows because of this.

    Was a piece of "the great armor rebalance" that caused well...

    "Arrow" damage is really piercing damage. But so you can buff/debuff against specifically arrows (guiding wind, arrow ward/shield), arrow has it's own damage type.

    When "arrow" damage is dealt, it checks against the targets piercing protection +/- any piercing buffs/debuffs +/- any arrow buff/debuffs.

    Not really, piercing damage is really knives and polearms. Arrow damage is "like" really arrow damage. Different buffs and different de-buffs and enchantments, so really they're completely different really. I don't think really means what you really think really means.

    In the absence of any arrow protection buffs or debuffs, the only protection which applies to arrows is the targets piercing protection. So yes, arrow damage IS piercing damage.

    Piercing buffs and debuffs still affect arrow damage. But arrow buffs and debuffs do not affect the damage done by piercing damage.

    So arrow damage is a form of piecing damage.

    If piercing buffs and debuffs did not effect arrow damage, then no, arrow damage would be it's own class of damage. But it does, so it isn't.

    I'm pretty sure that's old interpretation from DFO days. I'm pretty sure that made them completely different damage types. I say pretty sure because I haven't found the patch notes yet. I wish we'd get an statement from the devs. Maybe Neilk but I only see him on discord...

    This is true, it was separated a while back.
