About this mod

Extends the Archery skill tree by giving you new perks, including melee bows and dragonslayer arrows, and by adding new tiers to existing ones. Two options available.

Permissions and credits

Updatee (1.5): I think I've fixed the missing-mesh issue with Wizard Arrows. I made some other fixes as well. See below.

Marksmanship in Skyrim should be more versatile and awesome in general.
This is the full version of the mod; it adds to the Archery perk tree.
New perks are added, and some of the vanilla perks are modified.

New Perks

* The damage of the Wizard Arrows scales with all magic skills.
* Wizard Arrows are incredibly fast and light, and are hardly affected by gravity.
* During the spell, your hands are free until the effect ends or you equip other arrows.
