    What do you think is the best arrow in the game? I personally use Hellfire... they're a lot easier to get, being only 1 silver coin each from the Demolitionist, and they explode on impact... of course Holy is good too. What do you think?

    Hellfire Arrows. It's like turning your bow into a grenade launcher.

    Wooden Arrow. Because it is the base for all others. Therefore, the best one.

    Jester's Arrows. They have the strong power of attack and the ability to travel through mobs. Unfortunately, you can't craft them... :(

    Cursed are amazing, provided your target can become ignited. Otherwise, probably Hellfire.

    As much as I love Unholy arrows pre-hardmode, Hellfire is the way to go. Explosives are da bomb, after all.

    Holy Arrows are really fun with the Hallowed Repeater, but probably not the best one, really.
    I'm guessing Cursed Arrows are the best due to having the highest damage.
    I haven't tried Hellfire in ages but they seem pretty cool so maybe I'll give them a try.
    Lower damage than Cursed Arrows but I remember them hitting an area...

    I prefer Unholy Arrows, piercing is so useful.

    Cursed Arrows, because they:

    -Cause 14 damage (a lot)
    -Cause the cursed fire debuff
    -Illuminate the area
    -Are pretty easy to create
    -Look cool.

    cursed arrows, the damage on the repeater is so high, it only makes sense to combine it with the highest damage arrows.

    I'm a fan of hellfire, because they're quick to stock on since they're purchasable from the demolitionist after hard mode now. Farming Cursed Flames gets boring, especially when both mobs that drop them can have a tendency to drop them inside of walls.

    Then again, I don't use bows much in general..

    Jester, the piercing is very important in hardmode, since monsters spawn a lot more often, and it's really good against the wyvern and destroyer. Sadly, crazy hard to get.

    Cursed Arrows+Hallowed Repeater = The New Phoenix Blaster.

    Holy. After using the new arrows both extensively in a variety of situations, I'd say Holy. Holy arrows do a huge amount more of damage versus bosses, due to most of the new bosses invulnerability to the "Cursed Fire" Debuff. The falling stars just do too much extra damage to pass up.

    But I use Holy more. I love the falling stars.
