Naah, not that much reallly. I've always loved to have a wickedsick powerful dart tho, one hit and the NPC or creature goes dead. But I doubt I will put my mind into that much when playing smile.gif

I usually use the Bow, if I use marksman, I might use the crossbow in this next game but I don't use darts

I'll especially miss the crossbow, the only decent Zombie slaying weapon in Tamriel.

Never used much of Marksman at all in Morrowind. Arrows were too heavy.

Not not really as I never used marksman weapons in Morrowind. Marksman weapons were pretty bad and held practically no real advantage. I normally used destrcution in its stead. Now that the bow has been revamped I will definately use the marksman system. I think that a good bow should be enough but I never really got attached to the other weapons so I probably don't understand.

Dang it. I just forgot what I was going to say next.

One of my characters was an archer, so I am a big fan of bows. However, the crossbows were more powerful than the bows, so I ended up using the crossbow quite often (until I got the Daedric Bow). Frankly, I like bows more and am not too sorry to see crossbows out of the game.

I will miss them not for their purpose, but for their atmosphere, its not the fact that I want to use all these weapons, but the thought that there are all these weapons to use. Historically the imperial legion did use bows rather than crossbows for missle troops, crossbows were only for people who were not skilled in the bow because they are easier to use. I feel the imperial legion will not be the same without this cheap mass produced weapon.

Crossbows make it feel to much like a FPS
The bow has some elegance about it at least
I also think that though it was there in MW lore wise it is to modern a weapon.
I think spears would be possible as a mod afterall they are jus big arrows so all the havoc-ness the arrows have could be applied to a spear. How you would model the throwing I don't know

Dwarven Crossbow and the various Darts in found in Mournhold sewers will be missed, but I'm not too bothered overall... lol
What will Argonians do without spears?

The only concern I have about the lack of crossbows is the difficulty of making a gun mod now.

It would be quite the feat (or at least harder) to make one now... you'd have to create even more custom content instead of just designating it as a "Crossbow Weapon".

Crossbows I don't really care about, but darts are another story. I loved using darts with my sneaky/marksman characters, and would haved loved seeing what they would be like in Oblivion... sad.gif

If your talking about putting the crossbows from MW into Oblivion. I have to say, I won't miss them. I tried using them, but they were horrible. So I used a bow instead.
If your talking about improving crossbows and putting them in Oblivion. I may be interested.

When this poll first came out, I would have said "no, I won't miss them." However, having just played an assassin who used darts as his major weapon, I've come to appreciate how cool they can be. But I think I'll survive Oblivion without them. I'll just have to get used to using daggers again.

About crossbows: I will admit that the Morrowind implementation of crossbows wasn't that spectactular. But crossbows can be quite powerful if properly designed. I remember hearing that at the height of crossbow usage/design, there were crossbows that could send their bolts through stone walls. Definitely a powerful weapon with great potential. I may miss what they could have been, but I never used them in Morrowind, so I guess I really won't miss them at all.
