Level 52 : Grandmaster Vampire
Adds 4 new bows and crossbows to the game!

-Iron Bow: 1 damage more than regular bow
-Golden Bow: same damage as wooden bow
-Diamond Bow: twice the damage of a regular bow, can pierce 1 mob
-Netherite Bow: same damage as a power V wooden bow, can pierce 2 mobs and is all your arrows are crit arrows by default
-Iron Crossbow: 1 damage more than regular crossbow
-Golden Crossbow: same damage as a regular crossbow
-Diamond Crossbow: twice the damage of a regular crossbow, can pierce 1 mob
-Netherite Crossbow: same damage as a power VI wooden bow, can pierce 2 mobs, and your first arrow(if you are using multishot) will be set on fire.

Adds 5 new longbows and heavy crossbows too

-Long bow stats are the same as regular bows but arrows travel further in exchange for not being able to crit with arrows.
-Heavy crossbows have far better range than regular crossbows, and they also have better piercing and damage; Mobs cannot spawn with these though.

Adds 18 new arrows as well!

-Flaming arrow: not everyone can afford flame, these arrows are set ablaze when you shoot them. However, picking them up just gives you a regular arrow back. It also stacks with the flame enchantment, making the arrow stay on fire for much longer.
>Recipe: arrow + regular torch, shapeless recipe
-Explosive arrow: Explodes on impact
>Recipe: arrow + gunpowder, shapeless recipe
-Fireball arrow: your arrow turns into fireballs.
>Recipe: arrow + fire charge + ghast tear, shapeless recipe
-Arrow of Hypnosis: the mob the arrow hits will attack another nearby mob. However, it turns into a regular arrow when you pick it up
>Recipe: spectral arrow + eye of ender in a crafting table, shapeless recipe
-Arrow of seeking: homes to the closes living entity within a 5 block radius of it. Can also be picked up much farther.
>Recipe: arrow recipe but instead of flint, you use eyes of ender, and instead of sticks, you use blaze rod
-Bouncy arrow: bounces 1 to 7 times. Depends on your luck. And upon stopping bouncing, it turns back into a regular arrow
>Recipe: arrow + slime ball, shapeless recipe
-Arrow of Phantasm: splits into 4 arrows at random positions. All arrows cannot be retrieved after they all landed
>Recipe: fermented spider eye surrounded with 8 spectral arrows
-Dragonfire arrow: spawns a small, short living dragon breath pool
>Recipe: bottle of dragon's breath surrounded by 8 arrows
-Lightning arrow: summons lightning on impact, but cannot pierce
>Recipe: ^ = prismarine shard, / = blaze rod, D = redstone dust
-Wither arrow: arrows turn into wither skulls
>Recipe: # = wither skeleton skull, / = blaze rod, + = nether star
-Shulker arrow: arrows turn into shulker bullets that levitates the hit entity; Currently only obtained through end city chests
-Iron arrow: deals more damage than a regular arrow but have less range
>Recipe: same as arrow but with an iron ingot instead of flint
-Wooden Arrow: deals less damage than a regular arrow but have more range(stacks with longbows)
>Recipe: same as arrow but with a stick instead of flint
-Arrow of Delight: heals your enemies hunger
>Recipe: spectral arrow + steak, shapeless recipe
-Ice arrow: slows down your enemies, crit arrows have a chance to freeze them
>Recipe: ice surrounded by 4 arrows
-Arrow of light: arrows that aren't affected by gravity
>Recipe: spectral arrow + blaze powder, shapeless recipe
-Arrow of ender: arrows that teleport the owner
>Recipe: ender pearl surrounded by 4 arrows
-Festive arrow: arrows that explode into fireworks
>Recipe: arrow + firework rocket, shapeless recipe

Other things:

-Mobs will spawn with more bow or crossbow variants; Currently are iron, gold and diamond. Gold is 40% chance, iron is 4.5% and diamond is 0.25%; Except for Piglins, they always spawn with a golden crossbow.
-Mobs that can use bows can also use these extra bows or crossbows and it will also affect their ranged damage
-Reduced the damage of regular bows and crossbows by 1(but note that the extra bow's and crossbow's damage scales are using the base damage in vanilla Minecraft, making golden bows better than wooden ones)


-Bow variety spawning: allows mobs to spawn with different bows. On by default
-Extra arrow spawning: allows mobs to spawn with tipped arrows in their offhands, it can also be a spectral, flaming, or explosive arrow. On by default
-If config button did not appear, turn on cheats via LAN and run a /reload or /function eb:load


-More arrows

Ok, this pack is causing IMMENSE lag on my Paper Server. Is there a more optimized version that I could use on paper?

Used to use this datapack 6 months ago, didn't have this problem before. Having same issue as koaeru, when loading into the world it fills my inventory with all the bows, crossbows and arrows. Think its having issues with one of the new minecraft updates in 1.16.4 and 1.16.5 haven't tested further back. Then also tested an older version of the datapack and it had the same issue. Bows work but it just fills my inventory when i load in.
