  • Suggestion: Arrows & Bolts to create temporary ladders

    I just had a cool thouhgt about useing arrows and bolts as stepping sticks. So you can build a make shift staircase and hop up arrow by arrow by shooting them into a wooden wall.

    Cool Idea!

    But wouldnt this be useless because of the wall-dodging and "jumping over scyscrapers" crapability that the thieves will have?

        It's a cool idea but it could be exploited to block off doorways and stuff, plus we have the rope bolts MB mentioned

          They should break after a 1 to 2 seconds of standing on them to even it up and should just snap if you run into them. That way they can't be used to block stuff

            "GENIUS!" But yea i didnt know about rope bolts, that would "in essence" reach the same goal. But what if you are out of rope bolts, it could be like a second chance way. It would be like mega man with the disappearing panels that you have to jump on

              Plus bolts don't stick to most surfaces

                Have you ever tried something like that before? I have when I was little and it doesn't work I thougt it was a good idea to climb out of a ditch with by using several sticks in the earth and they wouldn't support my weight. Eventually I had to climb a tree to get over. It's a fun idea, a little wacky. But if they did okay it, it would take a long time to prepare and if the crossbows are as accurate as the TUT crossbows, then you have to have several takes at it. And by that time I wouldn't think it was worth it (like getting backstabbed or the game ending by then). Sorry, to be a wet blanket, and it would be one of those nice fun add-on extras for the game, but I don't think the guys up top would put something that abstract in. :|

                  This would give the word "Bolt-Walls" a whole new meaning......

                  When i'm bored as a guard in Thievery i sometimes just starts creating walls at the thieves entry point to my area... E.g. Floor in the attic of bourgeios, in front of apartment vents in spiders....
                  Currently it's only intimidating... But you could completly block of vent exits this way, forcing the taffer to pull all your 30+ bolts out of the ground before he can get by....

                    Agian have them snap

                    Also imho bolts are to thin really. However the Thiefs arrows are pretty hefty *shrug*

                    Would add a great way to get out of a tight spot and maybe get up onto a beam,ledge or hatch quickly and not have the guard be able to follow you. Same idea as a vine arrow only it's more of a "if I have to I could try and use an arrow". Shouldn't be an easy thing to use because they snap.

                    Also give thiefs a reason to buy them/use them for somthing other than killing.
