    Title: Rapid Fire no longer gets 9th shot at GM.
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No.
    Details: I understand that the duration scaling with stacking was not intended (and that was fixed). However, before R49, the duration scaled with level, so level 100 would give 9 shots (one shot every 0.2 seconds for 1.8 seconds). Now I only get 8 shots at level 100.
    Steps to Reproduce: See "Details".
    User Specs:
    OS: Linux 4.14 unknown 64bit
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Eight-Core Processor (16) System RAM: 32164
    GPU: GeForce GTX 1070/PCIe/SSE2 GPU RAM: 8192

    I only get 9 arrows at lvl 125 too (which is another inflection point that grants an additional arrow)
    @Barugon is correct, non stacked Rapid fire is down by one arrow.

    Patch notes state:

    • Rapid Shot: Stacking rapid shot will no longer increase the number of arrows. It will still increase the damage. Also, the issue with not being able to take cover from this skill should be fixed as well. Because this bug fix is a large “nerf”, we will be adding all ranged skills to the 100% unlearn list.
    So presumably this is a bug, @Chris, could you confirm?

    Starting with R49 it's 8 arrows. I submitted a bug for this previously (to review the Rapid fire glyph information) and it came back as by design.
    That bug #: was 54208.

    So there was a fix and then a nerf on top of the fix. :(

    Is there any explanation of why the nerf?

    At what level do you get 9 shots?

    Level 121 if my memory is correct.

    I don't think that this nerf was needed, after the fix, and don't even mention piercing shot as a compensation.
