Default Arrowrain Notification

Is it possible to have this only show during fights where there are multiple targets? In mob battles, it only serves as clutter since it doesn't actually do anything against 1 opponent.

No. Then we'd have people recording the # of shots and the # of arrow rains and complaining that the % was off.

Sugestion : When blinding arrow will come there are two signs who indicate this. Notification and small icon. U can take off the notification.
Also i think archers need, among others things, notification for megacrit please.

Glitch specifically stated in the forums that Thaki's Fury did cause arrow rain; I asked in the forums when the bow dropped a while back. Presumably the sword we both carry does also, since the proc description is the same (not the accuracy part).

Every attack has a chance to cause an arrowrain. If your weapon increases chance of trishots then you'll indirectly get more arrow rains due to more trishots, but the weapon does not change the % chance of arrowrain.

OK so just to clarify, trishot is a multi-attack, but arrowrain is not a multi-attack and is instead a... i don't know, split attack or w/e.... and so the multi-attack bonus adds to trishot chance, but "bonus to multiple attacks" dos not affect arrow rain chance. That's what I am reading, right?

if you have a 7% chance of trishots you have a 7% chance for a 200% increase in arrow rain which is a 14% overall increase in chances of arrowrains...if that makes sense

thats what the indirect bonus to arrowrain is

We believe these are working as intended.

Looks right Raith.

Bonus to multi attacks does not change the percentage of your individual arrows that trigger arrowrain, but more multi attacks makes for more arrows which will give you a larger number of arrowrains during combat (since you are shooting more).

Seems to come down to people remembering that arrowrain has a chance on each individual arrow.

Understanding it as Arrowrain is a proc off of a shot and with the bonuses from legendary gear = chance for trishot to go off = more shots = more chance for arrowrain to proc off of each individual shot !!

Could have megacrits flash different colors. Have bladow damage flash the same colors as the word itself. Visual notification without the extra clutter.
