Is there a set damage calculator for arrows? I know if i use a 50 damage bow, normal arrows deal 50 damage, but what about fire, ice, shock, and bomb? Let's say I use a Lynel bow with 32 (x5), i know normal arrows will deal 160, but how much more will the other arrows deal?

Elemental arrows are just like regular only they do fire, ice, electric damage instead of "arrow" damage.

thus a bow that is 20 dmg and has 3 arrows. If all 3 arrows hit it's 60, if the arrows all three hit and are fire it's 60 fire damage, which would do MASSIVE damage against an Ice based creature.

Bomb arrows do 40? I'll look. yeah it's 40

Light arrows from both the twilight bow and bow of light do 100

Also bare in mind that in rain (or when enemies are in water) Electric arrows do double damage (or at least increased damage).

Most Ice enemies die instantly to fire arrows. Most fire enemies die instantly to ice arrows.
Electric enemies lack any weakness to my knowledge.

Also, ancient arrows do 50 damage against bosses and sub bosses and deplete 1/3 health from guardians. They insta kill everything else but don't use them on anything but bosses and guardians or it will burn up all the drops as well.
I've got a bad feeling about this...

Which also means using a 3 shot bow can 1 shot guardians with only 1 arrow consumed. ;3

Uh....the Ancient arrows will OHKO Guardians in a single shot as long as you hit them in the eye.
I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me

I only use the ancient arrows for

A) Getting rid of an enemy and not caring to lose the loot

or

B) Floating Guardians

The other Guardians I either do the trick with deflecting their lasers or arrows in the eye and strong weapons... but those floating once sometimes just don't get hit properly and take way too long overwise.

Already got more than 200 ancient arrows, and won't stop till I hit the max, just for the sake of it :D

Light arrows do ZERO added dmg, they're as bad as regular arrows.
I have a bunch of Twilight Bows, they all do 30 dmg per hit base. Only way to make the bow it harder is with attack food OR barb set (they don't stack), headshots and +attack modifier that spawns with it sometimes (+13 is max, so 43 dmg twilight bow is absolute max base it can get)

Not sure where people are taking this 100 added dmg but lol, it's definitely not the case.

The BOW OF LIGHT from the Ganon fight does 100 per hit , but that's the bow itself dmg.

Light arrows are infinite in quantity and range but their dmg is as bad as normal arrows.
