I know this is mentioned a few other threads but it’s kind of buried in those.
As of update 7 there has been a change to Split Shot, even though it was not in the release notes. Before update 7 oils did not affect Split Shot. After update 7, oils now affect Split Shot but in doing so there are some changes.
1. Using oils decreases the induction time from 1.2s to .8s
2. Using oils decreases the damage output. Without oils dmg is 525-837, with oils dmg is 506-818 (this was the damage according to my tooltip).
I’ve never seen oils effect a skill in the way they are Split Shot. Induction times and damage usually are not changed when oils are active. Why is this one skill different? Since this is the only skill that seems to be affected by oils like it is, I do believe is a bug and not WAI.
Another thing I noticed after performing a small test, upon a critical hit of Split Shot it is not resetting the CD of Split Shot & Rain of Arrow as it should if you have the 3 piece bonus of the Faron set. This only happens when oil are active however. I tested this on a training dummy, 15 uses without oils & 15 uses with oils. Without oils the bonus works fine, every time I had critical hit it reset the CD’s. However, with oils active the bonus did not work. Critical hits were not resetting the CD’s like it should.
Are these intended changes or is it a bug? As I said I believe it is bugged and have submitted a bug report but a dev response would be much appreciated.
