But I didn't want to dash
You can pretty much say having any arrow equipped when using f2d13 is situational. Still it's less situational than having an ice arrow because you can actually use 1 of the 2 electric arrows to get in. It's actually a solid option IMO.electric arrows and situational since you need them loaded, but anti air with them is risky but you can do stuff like AA up elect arrow, b3, j3 111 load ice or something from that sort.
you can also combo pretty easily into d2, elect arrow, b3 and so on.
