'N pass the grog while yer at it!

What mechanics would a terrifying rogue such as yourself be concerned about? It scares the pants off the little buggers, and occasionally, it even hits somebody! What more could a man ask fer?

I knew ye limeys wud be askin' more of the cap'n!

AOE/cannonball (& do all seadogs have the same hitbox size?)
# cannonballs
Rate of cannonballs
Distribution of cannonballs (randomization scheme)
True AP scaling
Stackable effects (e.g., Rylai)

There's gotta be some salty dog out there that knows fer sure!

I'd test, meself, but there be too much piratey laughin' to keep track!

all you need to know is that ap scales poorly and that the cannonballs are random

although random, I believe they are actually more focuses towards the center of the circle. courtesy of Heat n Serve.

Really? I thought they were concentrated towards where champs weren't. :P

When somebody uses barrage on me, I often find the best course of action is to grin and take it like a man. It's not *too* painful.

Take it like a pirate. Our ulty is to test if the enemy has balls (and stays in the barrage) or runs like a land lover YARRR

Oh yeah, and basically, if you aim with the center youll hit 66% of the time.
while aiming with the outer end its 0,1% YARRRRR
