Question for higher levels: puncture feat, bleeding puncture, barbed arrows, etc.
My question for higher level rangers - how well do the DoTs work in your experience?
Are the waylayer feats barbed arrows and piercing wounds worth it?
Does puncture feat work with AoE column attacks and shattering stance?
What about the splintering puncture feat from the sharpshooter tree?
Duo to technical issues, I've had a whole lot of time to think over my build when I can start leveling again. I've had the idea to combine the fast attack speed of the bow with shattering stance (and scatter shot), all the DoT (puncture, barbed arrows, piercing wounds, splintering puncture) and the root stuff (tendon rupture, ricochet, knee capping).
The main idea is to find larger groups, frustrate and confuse them with some quick shots, then run like hell with help from the rogue feats.
