Primitive weapons should be implemented into the game.
Currently, to be a hunter without being a blacksmith or get weapons from blacksmith you have to hunt using a primitive axe, a primitive pickaxe or for the brave one, a primitive knife which is kind of dumb.
Hunting should be a profession that doesn't need any other profession to be accomplished. I mean there is people right now that lives from hunting, yet they aren't blacksmiths and didn't need weapons from any blacksmiths either.
These weapon should be available to make right at the beginning :
- Primitive Spear : 1 stick, 1 flint and 2-3 wild fibers
- Primitive Bow : 1-2 sticks and 1-2 wild fibers
Currently to be able to make a bow, you need to get to a T3 skill (Bowcraft) and you need linen rope which need a T2 skill (Farming) and a T3 skill (Procuration) all this to make a simple bow.
On top of that, I don't understand why you need to learn how to use a crossbow to be able to use a bow. I mean, bow were created way before crossbow; therefore, people learned to use bow before using crossbow.
For the arrows, it needs feathers. You can catch chicken into snares but you can't slaughter them right into you inventory, you need a coop which require a T2 skill (Construction). Why?
