Arrow, Arrow, Arrow.

Anonymous asked: How many arrows has Vex gone through? I don’t remember ever seeing her buy any, but ammo is a constant worry for Percy. Does she just have a million in the bag of holding, or does she have a never-discussed “infinite ammo” perk?

Vex does go through a lot of arrows. The good news is that arrows are easy to come by; a quiver of 20 is a single gold piece. Additionally, half of all unenchanted arrows used can be recovered and reused. Granted, this occurring is a lot lower due to Hail of Thorns, Lightning Arrows, and the Blazing Bowstring, but arrows are still much easier to find than bullets.

To answer your question, no, Matt has made it clear that ammunition, including arrows, are a finite supply. It’s not entirely clear how many she keeps on her person (thanks to @EliseMMorrison for pointing out that she keeps the rest in the Bag of Holding, Ep22, 0:59:00), but 20 arrows is usually more than enough for individual encounters until more have to be retrieved. As for buying them, being in a town and stating that you spend 5 gold to buy 100 arrows outside of the game is usually good enough.
