If you've wanted to play as a "trick archer," like Hawkeye from the Avengers or Green Arrow from DC Comics, in the world of Minecraft, this mod is for you.
What the Elemental Arrows mod does for Minecraft is add over a dozen new specialized arrows, all with their own unique abilities and effects. While some of the trick arrows added with this mod are great for just damaging mobs, others have more utilitarian benefits upon striking a spot. Most of the combat-oriented arrows either apply status effects upon their target or modify the parameters of normal Minecraft arrows to fire faster and hit harder.
The more utilitarian arrows each have an interesting benefit that are useful for general adventuring purposes, rather than strictly for combat. The Egg Arrow spawns a chick upon impact. The Torch Arrow will either spawn a torch or create a torch item that you will need to collect, depending on whether it strikes a surface or a mob. The incredibly useful EnderEye Arrow will warp you to whatever spot it strikes.
A player skilled at quickly toggling between different varieties of arrow should have no problem working up a few combos with interesting and debilitating effects. For example, while the lightning arrow can call down a bolt of electricity, it can be more enjoyable when using that bolt to ignite a fuse that leads to a collection of explosives. An additional layer of fun can be had in multiplayer worlds and using explosive arrows to corral other players within range of the explosive cache’s blast range.
- Lightning Arrow. This calls down a lightning strike where it hits.
- Volley Arrow. Each one fires several arrows per click.
- Vampiric Arrow. This regenerates your health upon striking an enemy.
- Dazing/Poison/Blindness Arrows. These apply the pertinent status condition to struck enemies.
- Explosion Arrow. This is very useful for demolition from a safe distance.
- Ice Arrow. This slows, and possibly freezes, struck enemies.
- Fire Arrow. This arrow constantly benefits from the Flame quality.
Whether you have an interest in mods relevant to comic book characters or just want to improve the game's archery mechanics, this mod should be the perfect solution for you. A fully stocked quiver of the arrows in this mod can make for great memories about the game of Minecraft.
