Does anyone else find it odd that Endless Fusillade includes a 3 - 4 second delay from when you activate to when it takes affect when compared with Many Shot or 10k stars?


Ability comparisons are seldom done in isolation so perhaps when you compare the class as a whole it's more balanced, but given the natural synergy between the bow based abilities, and Endless getting nothing else to pair with, it's seems under powered by comparison.

Thoughts?

i have not takken it sence enhancement pass. 24 points is abit much for something that allways starts too late :( im sure it does make the arties abit more balanced, they are abit overpowered. just my 2 cents


p.s.

I see it more as something to start the fight with, so the delay there really doesn't matter that much. Also, the delay plays well with the description.

Same here,I have it timed in my head when to use it. My Arti will never be like a Ranger/monk splash. I even use it with my melee Arti to start fights.

I ran the numbers a while ago and, by my estimation, hitting Manyshot on CD puts out as many shots over 2 min as Repeaters on autoattack. So EF is just the "icing on the cake" as far as frontloading alpha-strike damage. However, you throw 10KS and MS together in a cycle, and naturally it tips the scales way back in bow archery's favor. And not even taking out the animation would do much to change that; they'd have to change EF to have a 20-30 sec duration to really make it comparable, and probably take away the charges/rest and just make it on cooldown like MS too.

20 or 30 secs of full auto every 2m would be a pretty awesome ability, but stilll not comparably awesome to 70 secs of semi-auto (almost full auto) every 2m with 10KS/MS/10KS.
