Just to note: Sil does not have cold immunity. Resistance however makes a big difference to the probability of this happening.

Well, if I get rid of Flaming Arrows, I will replace it with a new skill or skills. I am currently churning through ideas. Here are a few I've tried or am about to try.

I thought poisoned arrows cropped up in the Lay of Leithian, but going back to check I find it's poisoned spears. I agree arrows of piercing are a bit more interesting.

I'm currently looking into a reworking of Archery.

The motivation is roughly based on it being weak in the early game and extremely strong late. You begin with a shortbow and a handful of arrows...
