    Depending of the speed of the arrow, it changes, thats why power works as a %

    It can do from nothing of damage to enough damage to oneshot the enderdragon.

    If their damage was more consistent, it would be a nice addition to the game, right now most new players could find the 6-11 thing confusing:

    Bows can deal more damage when fully drawn, but what about crossbows? How do I deal 11 damage? Does it depend on the range? the closer/further I am to my foe? Maybe it depends on where I shoot, the head, the limbs....

     

    I think crossbows in Java should always deal 9 damage as they do in Bedrock Edition.

    ShinokuMiyah  Bows always dealing 9 damage sounds overpowered for bow spams. I also don't see how 6 - 11 can be confusing.

    Blast Burner You misunderstood me. I never said bows should always do 9 damage.

    I said players will easily understand the 1 to 10 damage bows would display, they will quickly realize it has to do with how much you charge the bow.

    But they probably won't understand the 6 - 11 crossbow damage. No one would ever realize iit does random damage. They might think, "maybe it has to do with the distance", "maybe it has to do with how long you keep the crossbow charged?", etc.

    ShinokuMiyah  I'm sorry Shino. I thought you meant bows which I should've noticed that you actually said crossbow. I still don't see how people would find it confusing with how long the crossbow would charge though because nothing is changing with its pull and shooting any part of the limb shouldn't even matter. Damage doesn't vary at what body part you shoot at with a bow either so they shouldn't have that in their head. I know those are just your examples but I believe that it won't be that confusing.
