Talk:Marrow

Trivia section[edit source]

It's pretty silly to say that 'marrow' is a pun on 'arrow', when the material is bone. Moreover, this wiki has a bit of a problem with ridiculous "Trivia" sections. Does it really need to be stated that marrow rhymes with arrow? 74.69.40.245 19:40, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Firstly, it was up for A MINUTE before you reverted it. Second, I don't see why not. Yes it's made of bone, but it's also a bow. It fires arrows. Marrow Arrows. I don't see why this is any less notable than mentioning bones contain marrow. - 71.90.44.109 19:47, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
    • You're right, I should have made a comment about why I removed it. My apologies. I think the fact that bones contain marrow is a little silly to include too, but I think the trivia section should be for strong connections to other cultural information that an average player might lack. I think it's just clutter, personally, but it's likely that I'm taking my frustration about other trivia sections out on this instance. Have you seen some of the other ridiculous ones I'm talking about? Such as mentioning every single 'broken sword' trope, as if this is TvTropes. I guess, does anybody else have some input? 74.69.40.245 19:51, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
      • If (IF) the drops were arrows instead of a bow, and those same arrows were called "Marrow", I would see no problem with the wordplay being noted. I'm kind of iffy on including it here under trivia. Maybe moving it to "Notes", instead?

Damage[edit source]

How much damage do bone arrows actually do and total damage with this bow?
