Should it say "...fires seven arrows..." rather than "...fires multiple arrows..."? I think it's fairly safe to say, but we have no idea on whether or not a trait will influence the number of arrows shot (or something of that nature). I can't think of anything other than a trait that could affect this, if such a trait is introduced it should just be added as a note anyways. So, would it be speculation to say that seven arrows are shot? -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 02:44, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Nah, it'd be speculation to say that a trait may affect the number of arrows shot. =P --Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig.png (Talk) 02:48, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Well put. Changing the page. ;D -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 03:01, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Is there confirmation that it will always be seven arrows? Venom20 [User_talk:Venom20] 03:30, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, the picture. There is no reason to think it isn't seven arrows. EiveTalk 04:11, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Barrage fired 157 arrows, should this be put on the page? The number was picked at random to illustrate the point. We do not know for certain that it is always seven arrows, this is pure speculation. Upon reviewing the animation, I count 7 devourers. Is it then possible that there is exactly one arrow fired per creature? Venom20 [User_talk:Venom20] 04:25, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Too many potential variables to cause a difference in the number of arrows fired. It could be always seven, it could also be based on the number of enemies like Venom said, it could also be influenced by another skill, it could also be influenced by a trait. We can't know for sure. -- Konig/talk 06:43, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

That better then? EiveTalk 06:49, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Well in an interview it is said that Spread Shot releases seven arrows, hitting multiple enemies or the same foe multiple times if they are close enough... Justice 08:07, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Aqui, Ctrl+F for Spread Shot and you'll find it. --Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig.png (Talk) 14:58, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
also, the ranger fires several of these spread shots in the clip, firing seven arrows each time, despite the decreasing number of living enemies. 17:55, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


Removed the Tiers section as skills are no longer obtained through vendors. Omlech 00:55, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Beta Pictures and Notes[edit]

We should remove the picture of the ground overlay, its no longer a ground-targeting ability, just simply fires at your target. The note about not piercing is wrong, I am about 90% sure he arrows also DO "pierce" the target, you can stand with a foe in front of you and hit a target behind the one in front of you with the skill. 19:06, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Crit Chance[edit]

Are critical hits determined for each individual arrow, or can only one such arrow score a critical hit, or do all of them calculate a critical hit chance as one?
