The functionality is interesting to say the least. The Turbine doesn't actually give a barrage effect (i.e. multiple hits) but instead deals larger damage, proportionate to the Wind Maneuvers. Or so it seems.
When tested on EM and T mobs the difference is very noticeable, up to 10x standard ranged attack damage. However, one level 1 mobs, the damage is almost 1:1 identical to normal Ranged Attacks at 3x Wind Maneuvers. In fact, a subsequent ranged attack outdamaged barrage by a few points on another level 1 mob.
Perhaps instead of barrage this is a simply a ranged attack that somehow has different damage calculations based on level difference, ignoring stats, etc. Interested to know the full functionality of it. --Coronawolf 19:39, May 16, 2011 (UTC)
This is incorrect. If it did not give barrage effect, it would not allow for multiple skill ups as shown below:

Duly noted. I'll check TP values again. --Coronawolf 06:15, May 18, 2011 (UTC)
I'm kind of amazed no one pointed it out before. The source articles clearly read "# of arrows you shoot" followed by the amounts "(0/+2/+3/+4)". Because of the + involved, this would make a Barrage Turbine start at 3 shots, and cap at 5. This is much more in line with the actual numbers, such as my auto hitting for 215-235 with ranged shots and a 1-maneuver Barrage hitting for 689. Changing it as such. --Badough 20:21, October 20, 2011 (UTC)
