Why not just give Hanzo three types of arrows?

General Discussion
If the devs did try using the "R" key for Hanzo, can't they just give him a weaker scatter and a new arrow for "R"?
My vote would be for a fire arrow. I'd love to see an AOE DOT arrow to catch an area on fire and do low-med damage for a few seconds. It could be a good area denial tool or a way to finish low hp targets.

Not to mention Hanzo controls the dragons. Fire seems like it fits his story.
I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of the things that they're testing internally as we speak.
It's already hard to balance the arrows he has

To be fair only one of them is a problem. The other one just requires luck.

I don't know. To me, nothing about Hanzo screams fire. But maybe they could do like a "Spirit" arrow that does pretty much what you described. Like it has a blue aura around it.

I was just thinking that dragons breathe fire and Shamada's control the dragons. But I guess they are spirit dragons. That an archer with flaming arrows is just cool to me.
