Thanks guys. I wonder if this arrow/bolt ammo type info was omitted by accident in the help file or if it was intended as part of the game for the player to figure that out xDDD
By the way, I forgot to say that I could finally beat the orc chief (SPOILER) using potions of speed and heroism. I realized that potions of speed are one of the most useful and overlooked items in Angband, but I can never find them in shops. So I have to spend hours roaming at the first floors trying to find them. I think the game (v2.7.8 don't forget!) noticed that I'm doing that and now at the first floors all I can find is scrolls of summon and haste monster, potions of slowness, etc xDDDDD

Not technically in the help file, but if you 'I'nspect arrows, it says "they can be shot with a bow", and similar for the other ammo.

Yes, speed is the single most useful bonus in the game (followed by telepathy, probably). Later on you will even find items with permanent speed bonuses (the rings of escaping/teleportation that you find in the early game only have niche uses, since they come with big drawbacks).

I tried to use "I" key (again, version 2.7.8) and all that it says is "You don't know anything specific about this item" or something similar to that, tested on all kinds of items. Must be a thing that only works in newer versions.

And in 2.x it was much harder to find +speed items, making those you did find even more important.

I think in the older versions it only works if you've used an *Identify* scroll on the item. These are relatively rare/deep items.

Seriously, just upgrade to the current versions.
