Skill functions and interactions
- Additional Projectiles: Linking Lesser Multiple Projectiles or Greater Multiple Projectiles to Barrage will increase the total number of projectiles fired. For example, when using Lesser Multiple Projectiles, a total of 6 projectiles will be fired (1 base, +3 from Barrage gem, +2 from Lesser Multiple Projectiles Gem). Wearing a helm enchanted with Additional Barrage Projectiles will further increase this total. All projectiles fired can strike the same target, potentially dealing damage up to 12 times to a single target when using all three effects.
- Volley Fire: This jewel will fire an additional four projectiles per attack, with the added projectiles spread to the sides. These additional projectiles cannot strike the same target as the main projectiles and will in fact pass through them harmlessly (though subsequent projectiles generated via effects such as Chain could bounce to the primary target). Multiple Volley Fire jewels will add four more projectiles each, spreading out in a wider fan.
- Example: A user wearing a helmet with +2 Additional Barrage Projectiles and with two copies of Volley Fire slotted will fire a total of 14 projectiles per attack. A maximum of 6 can strike the primay target; all other targets may be struck by a maximum of 1 projectile.
- Dual wielding: The total number of projectiles fired by Barrage does not change while wielding two weapons. Projectiles are fired using one weapon at a time, alternating between one weapon and the other.
- The small randomized spread covers a small angle of approximately 20 degrees.
