    barrage + cap acc issue

    is there a reason why there is an acc check with each arrow? what is the point in making full barrages have a hit rate of 73% (6 arrow) / 69.8% ( 7 arrow), 66% ( 8 arrow)

    can the cap acc check only applay to the first hit or something? or lose cap acc concept on barrage?

    Barrage should independently check accuracy for a hit on each shot, rather than fail all subsequent shots after the first miss. Abilities / gear that raise the number of shots in barrage are a joke given the way the ability is coded now.

    Why did they even scale the numbers to begin with?

    Double vs Triple shot I understand. It's just the same as War only getting Double Attack whilst Thf gets Triple Attack.

    I agree the whole "missing all shots after one shot misses" thing in barrage is retarded. They should fix that.

    @Fyreus: They didn't scale the numbers, it's still 95% chance to land each shot. What the OP means is the probability of landing 6 shots in a row is 73%, because 0.95^6 = 0.73.

    Yeah Barrage is harsh mistress. I have a 90 Annihilator and I still have occasional full misses with the +35 rng acc on my gun alone. I wonder if Rambus still has barrage miss issues with Namas Arrow aftermath?
    I look forward to any improvements on Ranger as opposed to no improvements at all.

    He will because even with +999999999 Accuracy, you are still capped at 95% hit rate. The same way as occasionally, SAM's miss theiry Gekkos or Fudos.

    yes like noodles said, note this:

    that is CAP ACC rates. you are capped at 95% acc each it so when you are doing that shot after shot the chances of getting a full hit ( landing 8 hits one after anther drops)

    I started at level 75 then i left abyssea to keep upgrading my bow every 5 levels so my exp rate was slow. even with the after effect and atmas i only landed 1 full barrage + hidden effect, rest where crap -.- even have full misses or only 1 or 2 hits. that is why i wrote this topic.

    it is the same reason i can miss namas arrow even having the effect on (sam is fun with this ws lol)

    also you get the after effect even if you miss the ws ( find that strange)
