I havent been able to find any good info on this, so what is this best to stack with? WS or Barrage? And in your opinion, is it worth Meriting?

Well it ignores level difference penalties, which I understand amounts to roughly 15% of a damage boost, though I came to that understanding at 75 so it may have changed a little. Best used on WS. Nice for zerging and "look ma, big numberz", but not a job changer.

Whatever the effect really is, it's not a huge boost to overall damage, and I found Stealth Shot merits to be more attractive. Heck, if you want to do a Recycle build, you could stack merits to that effect and wouldn't miss Flashy Shot.

I feel like clarifying that I absolutely found one merit in Flashy Shot to be totally worthwhile. Anyone who has a stack of quivers of Ruszors at the ready is clearly waiting to do the largest WS possible.

It depends, on a monster that is 2~3 levels above you it won't add much damage. To a monster that is 15 levels above you it'll be godly, for that one shot.
