No gold or silver tips?

You going to decorate your living room with them? Gold and silver are impractical for use in anything that needs to hold an edge or withstand impacts. You'll notice the typical materials for weapons and armor are usually copper, bronze, iron, and steel. Gold and silver are usually valuable, but any weapons or armor made of them would be either decorative status symbols, or somehow enchanted to not quickly bend and break. Since it doesn't look like metal holds enchantments in this world, I'd say silver and gold weapons are out.

Yet the mythology there are creatures that are vulnerable to those metals because they are so rare. Can never be too careful.

Though it was mostly a joke about impractical trader weapons.

Different shapes would be nice also. Broadhead and pointed. Broadheads would do more damage and fly straighter... In fact I think the only downside they have is that they might possibly break more easily and are harder to remove. Also barbed arrowheads.
