• A one way arrow goes only one way, so you can not return via that route. I think you might be thinking of monsoon drifts, which do go both ways, but cost more

A one way arrow goes only one way, so you can not return via
that route. I think you might be thinking of monsoon drifts,
which do go both ways, but cost more in one direction. When
calculating total trade distance via open ocean arrows or
monsoon drifts, you count the total distance there and back
again (might not be by the same path each way) then divide by
two to get the trade route distance. Remember that in a ren
game a conduit counts as one sea zone for trade purposes.

• I think he s thinking of the strong current arrows which cost more one way, and are cheaper the other way. I think the monsoon drift borders are discounted

I think he's thinking of the strong current arrows which cost more one way,
and are cheaper the other way. I think the monsoon drift borders are
discounted both ways due to the prevailing currents changing from season to
season, unlike strong current which stays the same.
