Barrage is a Weapon Damage Multiplier (WDM) projectile attack that is available at level 6 on the Amazon Bow devotion tree. Barrage is often the main Early Game skill used by Bowzons due to it's large area-of-effect and high potential for single target damage. It is often used as close-mid range dps in conjunction with wyrmshot for longer range dps in the end game.
Barrage can be one of the highest single target damage skills in the game if one is able to consecutively fire several barrages and then have a monster stand directly at the point where the barrages were fired from. This can be accomplished in several ways: One way is to simply shoot and lure the monster into the barrage. Another way is to have the boss jump onto you. This technique is useful for many bosses such as Kabraxis and Belial, which both use Pounce.
Amazon's generally do not SuperMax barrage unless specing for a single target focused damage setup. Mainly bossing. Otherwise 10-20 points in barrage should suffice, with leftover points going into wyrmshot and sun strike for wyrmshot synergy.
