Ethereal arrows


Ethereal arrows in E1M1: The Docks

In Heretic, ethereal arrows are the arrows fired by the ethereal crossbow. Normal shots fire one main bolt in the middle of two peripheral bolts; only the main bolt is capable of hitting ghost monsters. When powered up with the Tome of Power, two more main bolts are added. When picked up from an undead warrior or found lying on the floor, they provide 5 arrows (7 on skill levels 1 and 5). When picked up from a dead weredragon, they provide 10 arrows (15 on skill levels 1 and 5).
