Unless you're in heavy lag, the wait 1 should be ok. But if you're lagging a bit, then the Barrage might not activate and you'll get a message "can't use this ability at this time" blabla.

Actually no, the recast is 5 full minutes, just like Barrage and Scavenge. It only lasts for 30 seconds normally however, not the 1 minute stated above. However, getting the Ranger AF Legs, Hunter's Braccae will double that 30 seconds to a full 1 minute. This ability is great for combining with barrage post-30 and sidewinder/slugshot post 55, if you have the AF legs or are quick, you can get both off before sharpshot wears. Good luck and happy hunting.

Wrong. Test it yourself. It's 1 min without the braccae, I've never used the af pants, never saw a point to em, and its always lasted that long for me, i even went and retested after seeing this, still 1 min in my war pants :)

Anyone have a fix on how much accuracy this adds? I swear I dont notice it much (maybe cuz us tarus have good accuracy).

Have noticed it does seem to cause alot of agro vs the mob you fighting. almost like a reverse voke.

No, just doing this move draws hate. If i use it to start the fight, and no one else has voked or hit it for much yet, it will turn towards me. Not nearly as strong as voke or curing magic, but it definatively draws a lot more hate then even just a normal ranged attack.

Same thing with a Monks Boost. Anything that helps a party member out has a certain ammount of hate attached to it.

RNG just do a lot of damage, so you're gonna get more hate if you hit more often.
