They said it dominates ranged combat, and that while sneaking you can get one hit kills. Maybe it said while not sneaking, too. I'm not sure.

I just know that it's going to be much more powerful.

I hope bows are better, they were fun to use, but without a strong poison bows were pretty weak in Oblivion.

Why is it that everyone seems to have problems with bows? I have no problem killing anything with my bow. It takes patience, and stealth.

My biggest problem with the bows was that no matter how good my sneak skill was it seemed as soon as you fired an arrow everything within a 1 mile radius knew exactly where I was at. It didn't even matter if I had invisability or anything. They really should add in to where foliage can give you cover, I like being a sniper it was just near impossable.

Oh. Yeah, that'd be awesome.

The higher level you reach as a marksman the more ridiculous amount of arrows it takes to kill someone in oblivion. It seems like they've really improved this which means I can be an awesome archer again!

No, it doesn't. I'm going through Oblivion right now playing Archer/Assassin, haven't exploited the game yet (except for duping poisons). 1 Shot from my bow with a poison is instant death, I'm currently level 40. My Marksman is only level 63. Could give my build if anyone wants..
