I got a question....

So I hit 30 last night and unfortunately this great group I was in had to all go disband once I did. So I never really had a chance to try out Barrage despite all the wait.

Testing it out on Unworthwhile MOBs didn't really give me a good idea of how it was working because they obviously died in one shot.

So....does it stack with WSs like "Sneak Attack" does for THFs?

E.g.

/ja "Barrage" <me>
/wait 1
/ws "Piercing Arrow" <t>


And if subbing WAR, I'm assuming I'd stuff Berserk & Sharpshoot right before Barrage as well?

Doesn't stack with WS's, but Berserk and Sharpshot help a bunch.

Are you sure? I've heard conflicting feedback that says it does stack with WS...the buff icon even looks & acts the same as does Sneak Attack sans the need to stand behind a MOB.

I suppose the obvious way to determine this would be for me to try it and see tonight.

Only it's funny how little information there is online on how to utilize this class-defining RNG ability.

Fight the urge to make a Barrage+Berserk+Sharpshot all-in-one macro. Using all 3 at once is like provoking the mob, and the damage from the barrage all but guarantees you're going to take some hits. I've found it best to use berserk and sharpshot together, then fire off barrage 45s or so later when sharpshot is about to wear off. If you can, try and kill the mob with it.

It won't stack with a weapon skill, though I don't think it wastes the barrage either.

long rang weapons dont work with sneak/trick attack.

No we know it won't work with Sneak Attack that's not the question... but thanks for replying anyway.

Ah, yeah, that's right. Good reminder.

I guess it will just mean some practice time with it. Either way, it's exciting!!

Barrage is independent of WS.

If you do the following:

/ja "Barrage" <me>
/wait 1
/ws "Piercing Arrow" <t>
/wait 10
/shoot <t>

...you will get Barrage activation, followed by the WS, followed by a Barrage shot.
