Can we get more Iron shots in the store please? (in General)

I see tons of arrow and bolt stacks. As well as rounded pebbles. But can we please get more iron shots in the store?

If I do not feel like using ex shots, at least I would want to do some damage to my opponent. Pebbles are like popcorn, they don't hurt much when struck by them.

Just an idea, consider:
crossbows are base 4 with base 10 ammo, 4x10 = 40
common bows are base 5 (average ELB, Composite, Compound) with base 8 ammo, 5x8 = 40
Slings are base 5 (assuming that regular slings and staff-slings aren't used) and have base 4 and 7 ammo.

I propose that rounded pebbles should be done away with and replaced with all iron shots. After all, they're not a very good base ammo to use, as they do minimal damage (4x5=20, which is half the number of xbows and bows - and YES, I understand that they don't correlate exactly with the damage dealt, but still, even without correlating much, one can see that they are much underpowered)

Because iron shots are picked up readily by all of those non-ex. shot SoD users, it would be logical to just have only iron shots - just like bows and crossbows have just one regular ammo and then several specialized ammo.

Or perhaps change rounded pebbles to have certain seeking properties (whether mage or tank seeking, I don't have a preference).

If this has been proposed already, oops.

Agreed, do away with those pebbles and just replace them with iron shot

I bet that's fun.

mitt: those aren't multipliers but modifiers ;)

but still, indeed even while I'm not using Iron Shots, they could spawn a bit more :)

Well, rounded pebbles are dirt cheap. So if you invest the gold difference in the + to hit, it makes them worth while.

So usually, when I am waiting for iron shots to become available, I buy a small stack of rounded pebbles and boost their + to hit (VERY cheap). It all evens out in the end.

I think iron shots spawning frequency is just fine.

Both pebbles and iron shots have the same to hit. It is the damage, the x, that is different.
