Path of Exile Is Announced Skill Revamps - Part 3

In Path of Exile, GGG announced some changes to Bow skills that they are currently experimenting with, including a major rework to Rain of Arrows and its Vaal version, as well as what they're doing to close the gap between Barrage and Blast Rain. Next, u4gm will tell you what skills will be revamped?

1. Rain of Arrows

Their reworked version rains down arrows that each deal area damage where they land, and they land over a much larger area than the original Rain of Arrows. 

Half of the arrows will drop randomly, while the other half will drop on targets over the area. It picks targets in a series of rings spreading out from the targeted location, making the target spread very even. Take a look at this screenshot for an example of this: 

Path of Exile

"Additional Arrows" add more arrows spread out over additional outer rings, increasing the total spread of damage without impacting damage to individual targets. The skill will also receive some additional effects to demonstrate the damage of the arrows. 

2. Vaal Rain of Arrows

Vaal Rain of Arrows will receive the same changes as Rain of Arrows above, with some special additions. The skill will fire more arrows, meaning it will drop arrows over a larger area. The skill will also repeat its rain multiple times, providing powerful ongoing damage, controlling its area for an extended period. 

3. Barrage

This skill is currently a cornerstone of the most powerful Bow builds, granting unparalleled single target damage once players have found ways to give the skill additional projectiles. 

GGG are currently trying out a version of the skill that has a base of 5 projectiles per barrage, rather than 4, and reducing the damage to compensate. This will mean that a player will gain 20% more damage for each additional projectile. 

4. Blast Rain

The skill will now convert 100% of Physical Damage to Fire. Ranger characters don't have easy access to giving a skill full conversion to fire, so GGG have built this into the skill to let you take full advantage of Elemental interactions. 

The skill will now penetrate 25% Fire Resistance by gem level 20. They wanted to boost the damage by about 25%, so they've done so in a way that will make it much more effective against resistant targets.
