    @Raphael M  That enchantment does not work for tipped arrows. Having multiple tipped arrows really causes a problem for your inventory. And no! Shulker boxes are not a good fix because you have to place them to access them. I know for pvp, this means death. A separate area for arrows through the quiver would be a welcome change.

    @raity41 You have my vote!

    My original take on the quiver was too similar to what's here, so it got deleted, and I was told to move it to the similar post. I'm also gonna go over my problems with the original suggestions at the beginning of them. No offense upon original posters idea meant.

    My big problem is the misuse of this item's potential. It shouldn't just be used to store arrows, it should be used to make bow combat more viable. I'll go over that later.

    Heres my take:

    Description: The quiver is worn in the chestplate slot, and makes for using the bow easier.

    1. Type: Combat
    2. Renewable: Yes
    3. Stackable: No

    Obtaining:

    • Natural Generation: The quiver has half the likelihood of being found in a chest in a dungeon as saddles do.
    • Fishing: Half the chance of finding one as you do as a saddle.
    • Trading: Can be bought by a fletcher.
    • Crafting: I noticed the fletching table is being added, so there may be potential there.

    Usage:

    • Storage - Quivers are only able to hold 4 stacks of any kind of arrow. When the item is equiped, 4 extra arrows marked slots appear (I don't care where). When the quiver is removed, the arrows are dropped into any available spaces in the inventory, or if there are none, onto the ground.
    • Drawing arrows - The priority for arrows are as follows: Offhand first, then the quiver, then the rest of the inventory. All arrows fired from the quivers are pulled back 25% faster than normal, and the crouching speed is not applied until a shot is 50% charged. This effect only applies to bows, and not crossbows. (It does not make sense to be able to pull a crossbow back faster, plus, crossbows already have a speed enchant.) If any other item (see my longbow post) was added that used arrows and shot them by pulling back and firing, then this would apply to those as well. This effect of the quick drawback of arrows does NOT work on infinity bows, making mending more viable.

    In-Game Application: Using the quiver to store arrows would be useless in a game that already has you able to hold half a continent. It should be made to make shooting the arrows faster. To get balance out of the way, it uses the chestplate slot to activate, which is the most valuable armor slot. This also opens paths to a new kind of playstyle.

    People who use the quiver are trying to be more effective at long range, keeping out of a melee conflict where they would be at odds in, and instead choosing to kill from a distance. There could also be a small indicator above your armor value, or somewhere else that indicates how many arrows you have, and using a stack of arrows with your hand could automatically place them in the quiver for you, like putting on armor.

    This item will also reward skill, as it means you have to keep an eye on your ammo count, in return for being more deadly.

     

    Thank you for considering my suggestion. More to come.

    To the original poster, I apologize for hijacking your own post, but I wasn't given any choice.

    Quivers would be useful expecially now that you can't put both infinity and mending on bows. Also, the relatively new different types of tipped arrows would receive more attention by the players. I would definetely use that.

    Lelebees | This was meant for an arrow storage if you wanted to store more arrows instead of filling up your inventory.  And what space?

    Too much negativity.

    Need a armour slot for the quiver on avatar's back. Need to equip quiver (free up inventory space).

    This would give yourself more space for other items

    Weapons could be equiped this way as well.

    As a real life archer, quivers usually hold up to 25 arrows. So a chests worth of storage is way to overpowered. But maybe 3 slots that can hold 8 arrows each so you can have different types.

    I suggest adding a quiver with 9 inventory slots. Only arrows of any kind could be stored in it. The quiver would be worn in place of the breastplate (or a place for the back if added). When wearing a quiver filled with several types of arrows, we will be able to click a certain key and display a small inventory with the ability to quickly select the pile of arrows we shoot.

    Maybe, since the crossbow was implemented, you could also store fireworks, and you could prioritize projectiles by having them in your inventory, and it would act as "infinity", but it would just replenish the arrow in the inventory with one of the arrows in its inventory

    Those images are too op, and desbalance the entire game now. But I have the solution, They would have less slots, but without being few, and it would be used on the chestplate slot, instead of having it on the off-hand or on a different space.

    In addition, You need modern textures that would fit the new style of Minecraft, so there are some examples for them:

    It would be extremely useful if, unlike shulker boxes, you could fire arrows directly out of the quiver (which could be a chest plate armor piece [wear the quiver on your back] a leggings armor piece [wearing the quiver at your side] or an off-hand item) It would also go with (or work as) a sheath (worn by the same method) in which you can store one to three weapons (they would render in separate sheathes) and draw one by attacking. This would add something really cool and useful in Minecraft.

    I always use a stack of arrows, and you can use shulker boxes

    I had a post about adventure type items and the quiver was one of them. It was deleted due to me not realizing most of them were already mentioned.

    A quiver should be implemented to make a bow easier to use, not to just use it as another chest. In my opinion, the quiver should be mainly for tipped arrows since they are not affected by infinity enchantments and there's more than 10 different types to collect.

    Layout/Mechanics

    The quiver should have no less than 3 slots and no more than 9. Shulker boxes are indeed useful for arrow storing, however, you have to place them in order to open it. The quiver could be opened just by pressing G or V or any other key to pull up its 'hotbar' no matter where it sits in your inventory. Like in the original hotbar, you can press 1-9 to select a stack of arrows relatively quickly and then just shoot. Above each slot will show its number and the potion effect symbol for each tipped arrow in it.

    Shulker Boxes and Quivers

    Basically a player could click G or V, select an arrow, shoot. The arrow would stay selected until it is changed by the player. Perhaps a quiver's abilities could be combined with a shulker box to still allow arrows, but also any other items you have. Pressing G would show just the slots in the shulker box with arrows in them. A quiver should be a mid-late game item but not the ultimate goal for arrow storage/bow usage.

    To the original poster, you're idea is great and would make PvP and PvE very interesting. The quiver should be more than just a ridiculous amount of storage for just one type of item.

    I think, for this is a backpack slot necessary.

    @mad3nder mad3nder

    Liked you idea, let's add to it.

    - Shift right click with the bow in hands to change between the quiver slots (4 slots its an amazing number, no more needed).

    - Arrows need to be nerfed in some way, maybe 16 arrows per stack.

    - Tipped arrows need to be easier to craft (no need for the dragon breath for this).

    The quiver like that I think is not a good idea.
    But it would be nice if it is used as the elytra, in place of the breastplate, and allows you to easily change the type of arrow. The quiver is advantageous for players at a distance, and is balanced with less armor. It is easy to change the type of arrow if you are using the numbers of the keyboard (not the function keys). To be really good at PvP and Survival / hardcore, the quiver would allow a maximum of three (3) types of arrows, accessing it in the player's inventory (by pressing the "e" key).
    Using the quiver also displays in a item bar what type of arrows you have and what will fire.

    It's a bag made of leather. It has nine slots like the Dispenser, and it's also random.
     
    When you put nine different arrows in the Arrow bag, you will only get one of them randomly, and you can only use it when holding it in the off-hand

    I really like mad3nder mad3nder's idea. Nothing wrong with original post, but mad3nder mad3nder gets more in depth. The idea of having in the chestplat slot was the first thing I thought of while reading this post and I certainly think it should only work when there. In addition, I don't think that the quiver should have the amount of space as a chest. FjallexBoi said that it should have 3 slots with 8 arrows each. I agree 3 slots sounds good but though it's not a realistic, I think each slot should fit 16. Also, I like the skin for the quiver shown in raity41's post. Possible it could look empty (not show arrows in the quiver) when no arrows are equipt (like shown in Joaqui's post. This really would be a good addition to Minecraft!

    With the infinity enchanting on the bow, you would have any use for this item

    I propose a counter request. Yes, quivers are a good idea but not with current bows. noone usues that many arrows at one time without being able to refill safely. However, If arrows normally had much smaller stacks such as 1 arrow or mabye 4 arrows per stack a quiver would allow you to hold much more than you normally would yet not becoming over powerd. I mean how many arrows can you hold in 2 hands? Even if you can hold several quitillion tons you can only carry somany. Doesnt make since to be able to carry hundereds without the help of an external storage aid. Also you should only be able to have one quiver at a atime

    I see how this could be amazing especially if you could equip the quiver as armor and it showed up on your back, I would love to see something like this as I play an archer on my rp server

    Sounds cool if the quiver could basically strap over armor and was visible from the outside

    I Don't find this idea to be any useful, shulker boxes are in the game and you don't need like 3+ stacks of arrows in your inventory even in pvp

    I think the quiver should be one time crafting non stackable item when crafting you can craft it with various types of arrows(5 type and 10 arrow ) it would save inventory it will have a drawback like the arrow will continuously change like first it will shoot 1 type then second then third it would only be placed on the shield slot and will be visible behind player like in real life it will reduce time to fire arrow but reduce defense armour of the player.

    This could be a quick way of switching through different types of Tipped Arrows.
