Do quivers modify sword damage?

    I would like to know if quivers modify the damage only of arrows inside them or even an sword?

    Quiver of Blight
    Ammo: 500 Arrows
    Damage Modifier 10%
    Cold Damage 50%
    Poison Damage 50%

    Weight Reduction 30%

    will my 100% physical damage sword modify to 50% cold and 50% poison damage?

    I think they do - I know they did when first introduced, and they actually interfered with Consecrate Weapon damage.

    Not sure if this is still the case.

    I heard it only affects arrows inside. Though i'm not 100% sure.

    EA is doing pretty much nothing controlling OSI. I just send that question to their support and they just said they don't answer in-game questions... what a **** support service...
  5. From the ML Archive:

    Q: How are quivers going to work? Are they craftable?
    A: Yes, several quivers are craftable. Quivers are equipped on the paperdoll and may contain arrows or bolts. A quiver improves the damage of arrows, both by a flat percentage increase and through the damage type associated with the quiver. Quivers can be auto-refilled from another container and are limited by weight and not item count. Quivers confer a new property of weight reduction on their contents. And... they can be insured.
    More information for quivers:
    • The damage type of the quiver replaces the damage type of the bow.
    • Damage is increased.
    • A quiver can hold arrows or bolts, but only one type at a time.
    • The weight of the contents of a quiver is reduced.
    • Ammo is used from the quiver first before being used from the character's backpack.
    Added to FAQ 5 July 2005:

    Q: Can you tell us about craftable quivers?
    A: There are 5 types of craftable quivers:
    • Elven Quiver - 10% Damage Increase, 30% weight reduction
    • Quiver of Fire - 10% Damage Increase, 50% physical damage, 50% fire damage, 30% weight reduction
    • Quiver of Ice- 10% Damage Increase, 50% physical damage, 50% cold damage, 30% weight reduction
    • Quiver of Blight - 10% Damage Increase, 50% physical damage, 50% poison damage, 30% weight reduction
    • Quiver of Lightning - 10% Damage Increase, 50% physical damage, 50% energy damage, 30% weight reduction
    All but the Elven Quiver will override the damage type of your bow. Only tailors will be able to make quivers, but they will need to find the appropriate recipe before doing so.
    Personal thoughts ... the sword will NOT go 50-50 on the damages. I believe in a FoF it was mentioned the Damage mod does apply. Not 100% on that last one ...

    So quiver changes nothing in the sword?
  7. as far as I know but I have not gone through all the FoF entries.
