  • Flashy Shot has more significant effect as the target monster has a difference in level.
  • Flashy Shot only affects the first hit of Barrage.
  • Eagle Eye Shot counts as a ranged attack for the purposes of this Job Ability.


  • The way Flashy Shot affects damage is by eliminating the pDIF penalty incurred by ranged attacks on the level difference between you and the target. This penalty was introduced during the "RNG Nerf" and is largely responsible for the reduced damage after the patch.
