Show barbed shot some love

#1
Will barbed shot ever been shown the same love that rend got a cpl of months ago? Being a drasticly underused and underpowered skill, barbed shot could really use the 2 second tic damage like rend has. Please OTM

Plz change one of these 3 things OTM:
Change the tic damage to every 2 seconds (like rend)
Adjust the casting speed/animation length(no lost autos...)
Change damage to bleeding or poison(id like this the most :D poisoned tips on the barbed arrows or barbed arrows cause a deep wound causing bleeding so both make sense that it could happen) if it was changed to bleeding the damage could be redused A BIT. Not reduced to the point of being useless again :roll: or just leave damage the same since the energy consumption of barbed shot is already rediculous compared to all the other skills

+1. Depending on new weapons (maybe offhands) and types of bosses, rangers might end up losing to warrior for dps. Big +1

Would the 25 sec duration really be an issue if changed to 2 second tics? Currently barbed shot costs double the energy of rend and also has the aweful casting/animation. If the casting was also fixed and the energy cost greatly lowered then i could understand dropping it down to 15 sec but otherwise i dont see the duration as such an issue. Cooldown would also have to be fixed if duration changed.

As in I was +1 for both happening, but the second shouldn't unless it was changed to 15 duration

Actually explosive is an amazing leveling and farming skill. Unfortunately barbed shot is amazing at nothing. Useless for farming. Below average for leveling and entirely useless at raids depending on if others use it

Yes barbed shot needs some attention OTM... As a dex build ranger at 211, I have extra points that I don't really have a good skill to put in... i definitely think it should have poison damage... name kinda implies that imo... And lower energy cost for sure too and faster cast time
