Just because I didnt know this, imma post it here, found it on wiki.

Apparently this ability has sort of upgrades as you lvl. At 30 it will shoot a maximum of 4 pieces of ammo, you CAN miss completely. At 50 it can shoot as many as 5 and at 75 it is possible to shoot 6. The rng AF1+1 hands "Enhance Barrage" by adding an additional shot, making it possible to shoot 7 pieces of ammo at once! You gain TP proportionate to the number of shots connecting, so if you gain 14% per shot and land all 6 at 75 you would instantly have 84%tp.

Also, it isn't as painful when you miss barrage as some ppl think. Barrage calculates each shot, and if a shot misses it automatically terminates there without firing any more shots. This means if your first shot misses you will miss barrage completely but you will only lose 1 arrow/bolt/bullet. While this is nice for conserving ammo, it means that barrage is instantly killed by blink. A shadow absorbing your first shot will kill the effect entierly without stripping all shadows, as one might expect.

man, the barrage sucks when you miss, feels like gil just jumped out ur pocket and ran away any time you miss those. well it sucks even more when u miss it w/ Sharp Shot. then it feels like u can hit the blunt side of a mob lol, well GL guys, hope you dont miss anymore. cause i had to retire due to arrows.

Im not a ranger with barrage but i am accumulateing all the info u guys are saysing along with personal experience with rng in pt. I beleive when u use barrage it puts the symbol in top of screen like sneak attack. then u hit range attack. it randomly chooses from 2-5 arrows and fires! now wether all 5 or all the arrows actually hit is another story. i think that depends on rng acc and the use of sharpshot. the tp gain is for each arrow that hits. ex. you have 20 arrows equiped. /ja "Barrage" then range up to 5 arrows are taken so u have 15. it is like shooting five arrows at same time. not all are guarenteed to hit( just like when u fire a normal range attack). then tp is awarded for each hit. thats just puting together stuff i have seen talked about and trying to sort out confusion. i am starting rng(10) and will no soon depending on number of invites. RNG do not equal blm. they are two dif jobs dont compare which is "better" or someone will end up ****** off lol. they both deal massive dmg in there own way if played right! those two k=jobs should always be buddy buddy when it comes to magic burst and sc! lol that is my two cents^^

Barrage has a duration of 1 min, don't use it, it wears off.
Barrage shoots 4 or 5 ammo depending on weapon- bows are 4, guns and xbows are 5.
Now this is MAXIMUM- it does not mean it always happens. What happens is you shoot of 1 ammo, it checks did it hit? if it did then it shoots off the next to the maximum number stated above, hence why most rangers stack sharpshot and barrage.

n00bish question about u.shot and barrage

bit of a n00b question, but i'm curious:
does unlimited shot stack w/ unlimited shot?
like if you used unlimited shot, then barrage and ranged attack, would only the first bullet be unlimited or would all 4-5 be unlimited or would the barrage cancel out unlimited?

Think when you first get barrage its 4 hits, at some point later in the Lv 50~60 range it changes to 5 and Lv 70-75 it is 6 hits (or maybe just at Lv75)

i dont think i would be able to do any sort of magic burst w/ barrage, but this is an entirely different sort of attack. i really dont see how this turned into a blm and rng flamer zone. i just got this skill today its badass. the pld couldnt hold hate be4 much less now.

They should have given us Barrage every 3min instead of giving PLD cover.... that would have been a nice update.

First...barrage doesn't hit multiple times with 1 shot. it shoots 4 arrows at once. now....whether those 4 arrows hit is another thing. if all 4 hit....massive dmg. but i have had barrage hit once giving me only 14% more TP but still shooting off 4 of my arrows. when i was around lvl 32 rng barrage acually missed completly. that didnt make me feel good about all the money and time a spent getting the best equipment. but either way....just feel that i would clear up a few things

Well I've seen a few posts in other threads that discuss Barrage getting a 5th arrow once you hit a certain level (I believe they said Lv. 50 or 55)

If that's the case then please disregard my previous post :)

I'm pretty sure Barrage only uses 4 arrows, not 5.

Here's why:

I've done this test multiple times and have always gotten the highest end result of 56% TP after a Barrage.

One arrow gives you 14% TP.

14% TP x 4 : 56% TP.

I've started at 14% TP (Fired a single shot), Used Barrage, and was at 70% TP (The original 14% + Barrage).

If I'm missing something please correct me, but until then, I'm saying Barrage is only 4 shots, not 5. There is the possibility that perhaps one of the supposed 5 arrows during a barrage doesn't give you TP, but would that really make sense?

This is the coolest skill. I just got it two lvls ago and love it. I use ninja blink first (cause i know i'm gonna get alot of hate), then sharp shot, then Barrage, and POW 300 dmg to an IT mob. Then I let loose Flaming Arrow, and bam another 130 dmg. This skill is essential for higher lvl rangers, and with full TP, Barrage and Eagle Eye Shot I can solo IT Mobs (dangerous though). I LOVE THIS SKILL

I believe it adds to tp 5 times, if your attack hits 5 times that is...

I know that i've gained archery skills 5 times since i just got this skill, which is lovely. And did 342 damage to an IT mob! I'm now doing more than any blm could dream of :)

Heh... No BLM can dream of doing over 300, eh?

I've been doing 1200+ with magic bursts. Oh wait, I'm level 54...

But then I think back to Yhoator Jungle when I *was* level 30... Yah, I was doing more than 300 damage with bursts. I will give ya credit tho, we can't really do more than this without a burst. Then again, you have to use a JA, so that sorta breaks even.

Heh wait till you get a 95% resist on a freeze/blizaga MB. It really takes the wind out of your sails :p

The 60's are a rough time for BLM :)

youre not gonna MB that much at 30 though. While your MB damage is going up, so is barrage damage... in fact the number of arrows/bolts/bullets fired increases as well. at 75 barrage will fire up to 6 shots, and can be good for just as much damage as MB, and also give you enough TP to slugwinder the next mob... because that one will probably be dead ^^

Just checked it, and yes it adds TP multiple times. But whenever I check to see how many arrows i've lost it always at the most 4...so maybe it can hit 5 times but i haven't seen it yet with 30+ barrages under my belt.

I believe this is called Barrage. I'm pretty sure it uses 3 arrows after you use barrage. It's like Sneak attack, you get the buff saying your next attack with do so and so, but it does NOT stack with WS. If you use barrage, then say, use Flaming Arrow, you will still have the barrage buff on until you fire a normal arrow.
stack?

Does it stack with WS like a thief's Sneak Attack?
