I thought to make a thread for every class and ask you folks...

Which is the most underrated skill amongst your class? The kind of skill, that other players of your class dont really seem to appreciate, at least not most of them, but you've found a nice use for it.

You could also mention why you personally like this skill and why others do not favor it so much. Both PvE and PvP scenarios are welcomed.

    Wingspan.

    'Cause it's the way how not-that-super-geared archers can do PV, also saving charm a lot meanwhile for majority of mobs being outside hitting range all the time. Kitty's HA-archer uses less charm in PV than any other class, including seekers and BMs. Wingspanning archer ish far more AoE-tanky than BoAing archer.

    Hmm, archers don't really have much skill variety in the first place, but I think frost splash and galvanic get a lot of undeserved badmouthing, galvanic especially.

    I`m gonna vote sage stormrage. While I did swap to demon on archer I have to say it really does make a difference, though its mostly usefyl in PvE.

    Galvanic aura
    Arrow inferno hits pretty hard but I don't like the channeling time.
    Sage storm rage in pve and if you've got the chi to combo a barb or something and everything else viable is on cool down.
    I'd also add stunning blast the genie skill as it's archer exclusive.

    Psh. That's an elf skill in general and has always been considered handy until you get CS wings (plus it's incredibly cheap so you aren't losing much to max it).

    Sucks that it only works for the default wings, though.

    Gotta agree with Arrow Inferno. I actually use it more in PvE as an extra AoE. Only ever use it on cata barbs in TW, basically because of the 1 spark cost, in TW I need all my chi for anti-stuns and the occasional barrage

    Sage Stormrage Eagleon

    Even when it's not of any use in PvP. I'm a carebear player and the skill is awesome in PvE. It makes a lot of difference.
    And sage Frost Arrow is rather coolzio, yet hated on as well.


    And I still demand my sage Vicious Arrow back instead of The Kiss of Snake... Dat forever lost trolltastic mana leech >:
