Buff impale... That's what I want lol I gave my reasons why up there ^^
see heres the thing about that, if they intend us to turn it into a spamable skill it is still terrible lol which is why on live even with cost reduction gear people prefer elemental arrow. We have so many other spamable skills with similar DPS that have much better AOE. Bola, Frost Arrows, Ball lightning, multishot etc etc.
Impale doesn't have a place as a weak spammable skill when compared to the options already available (which is why nobody uses it), it should be an option up there with the heavy hitters like cluster arrows and spike traps. Right now cluster arrow is in a league of its own and i think if impale even got its cost reduction gear nerfed a bit but its damage output doubled or even tripled it would make it much more attractive and competitive choice versus cluster arrows. With cluster arrows you have more AOE and more damage with impale i could see it being less AOE but slightly less damage but also cost less.
In certain situations one might outshine the other and so on. Thats what we need, another heavy hitting spender that can be a competitive choice versus with cluster arrows and promote more builds. We dont need anymore low dps spamablle AOE skills, we have plenty of those as it is.

Loads of potentials here in the US> Loads of you are great community members. I already told Nyan i'd vote for him :)
Well you don't understand how to prepare for battle...
Good points and thanks for the posts on ShSh. I understand it can be used to effectiveness. I guess i have never got it to work well for me though. maybe with 4 passive slots its cool, but with 3 i always figure its better to go with archery+Steady aim and nightstalker/cotw when using 1 handed xbow... which is the weapon of choice if you want to make good use of ShSH right?
Either way, that skill is highly underused and maybe needs tweaking a bit to make it more appealing?
I thought they increased this to 620% damage.
Even then i'm still with you actually. As i mentioned in the OP, our single target skills are not much to be looked at. If its single or few targets that the skill is aimed at for the use of the skill then the damage multiplier needs to be very high.
hmmm good call, forgot they nerfed archery like that. I do DW so thats cool, but i'll get 5% less chc now... Even in the heat of battle though, still better to have archery if you're a skill spammer?
On another note, as mentioned above, i'm not sure i'd even think about touching "singled out"... I dunno how thats supposed to be useful with dense mobs all the time in this game...? strange design choice...
rofl they did buff impale i guess... strange because the streamer i asked to test it was doing TERRIBLE damage with it still compared to the initial crit from cluster arrows which was in the millions the impales were barely hitting for 1m or less.
I know the datamined info says its at 620% but i havnt bothered to ask if it still reads for that much in the beta. either way i think it should be hitting for more to compete with cluster arrows considering its mostly single target with almost zero AOE except on two runes.
