POSTS MERGED IN FROM ANOTHER THREAD ~ParaLogia The problem with water bombs is that knights can use them the ideal times in a fight. Water arrows on the other hand require some form of skill and communication from the archer and the knight. For the most part, the knight has no idea whatsoever when the archer is going to fire off a water arrow (except if they're using voice chat). Moreover, water arrows usually don't mean an instakill due to archers doing a max of 2 hearts, while knights could usually only fit a slash in. Meanwhile, the knight can use the water arrow right before a double slash; allowing to kill all the enemies within his/her radius. IMHO I think this is the reason why so many people have a problem with waterbomb spam.
