Like regular elven arrows, dark elven arrows are made of wood, and do the same amount of damage. However, the arrows made by surface elves have one practical advantage over their subterranean counterparts: SLASH'EM gives a 33% chance of adding an extra multishot when firing non-cursed elven arrows, a bonus which does not apply to dark elven arrows .
It is unclear whether this was an intentional bias or just an oversight in the code. In any case, drow rangers may wish to trade off (or, given unwanted potions of gain level, upgrade) their starting arrows for regular elven arrows, or (for a to-hit bonus and better damage against large monsters) ya.
