This skill requires 3 skill slots, Charm, a Pet Res and the actual skill. Isn;t that cost enough to allow the skill to cost a little bit less? Even with 13 expertise this is a whopping 12 energy, which is a lot to a ranger. Maybe move it to 20 preferably 15 energy to allow this to be more useful for combining bow skills and beast mastery builds? I tried running it with Barrage and Volley and I couldnt spam them and keep this up let alone run any beast mastery skills. Atm I much preffer running Frenzy or Tiger's Fury to this.

It really should, I can understand PVP keeping RaO's cost up, but this is a PVE-only skill and causes no problems by being cheaper...Hyper Cutter 03:20, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Auron Bushi: oh didnt you here? the monster were complaining that it was over powered and well, when those monster gather togeter to fill out a petition for a skill nerf or in this case crappy creation its kinda hard to turn em down. (its all the fangs and wings and claws... dont know why the wings would intimidate the developers but they do.)

This + Warrior using Battle rage. 25 = OMFG high on a warrior though. 8D 15:13, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Does this skill, and for that matter RaO, still effect yourself if your pet is dead (or even without charm animal equipped)? Coruskane 02:46, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

No, if your pet is dead or you don't have a pet, this skill and RaO will have no effect. However, if you use it and THEN your pet dies, it will last its duration, but then cannot be used again until you rez your pet. LordSojar 10:54, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Jesh, this skill is actually Great! Try using an Zealous Weapon with it! I have No problems running it with my R/P, using spear skills and pet attacks. If you Barrage with a Zealous weapon, you should have a net INCOME of energy to help pay for this skill. It's really worth the effort. ~Aaron

Just a note: Barrage has a recharge that intentionally makes IAS useless with it. Backsword 05:15, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Mostly, but not entirely--alternating between normal flat/shortbow attacks and Barrage with +33% IAS maintains a pretty decent attack speed. 02:45, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

a non-elite RaO with twice the duration and built-in mending. this skill has won the Random IP's Seal of Approval 08:31, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Now at 15 energy I use it on my war with Battle Rage for my main stance....combined i have a great attack speed...adrenal gain and hp regen.

Better Than Mending!!!![edit]

At 15 Expertise, this has less upkeep cost than mending (for the same heal). Sure 2/3 of an energy may not seem that much, but you also get +25%IAS for you and your pet. Maybe now PvE will become overrun with Echo Rampages, and we can finally be safe from Echo Menders and their 1337 H4X0R SkillzCrimmastermind 01:25, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

made a new paragon and went ranger second for pet. was just skiming through the sunspear skills and was like...this is 15e now?! sexy skill ;-)--Justice 08:53, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

NRA redirects here... lol[edit]

Pretty funny, since rangers use ranged weapons. Paddymew 12:35, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

I like it :) ... for those who don't get it or are not American, the NRA is the National Rifle Association... MrPaladin 12:47, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, thanks for that :) --Arduin talk 23:19, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Update duration?[edit]

I was creating new P/R builds when I noticed the duration on NRA as 24sec on my r9 sunspear para. It's clearly different from the 23sec max on the subject page. Has nobody noticed this? -Wrei110.175.241.56 18:32, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

I've noticed this also, at Sunspear rank 6 I have 22 seconds and 2 regen Praeclarus 03:52, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Guild Wiki has the correct values. There seems to be an issue with the tool this wiki uses to calculate the data in the table for at least this skill. I've left a note on the relevant page. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 04:03, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Excellent Secondary IAS?[edit]

Elder pet vs Master of Damage test by Beast Mastery with NRA (approximate): BM 5- 10dps BM 9- 15dps BM 12- 20dps

IMO using 2 skill slots to get a long duration, non-stance & non-removable IAS along with a healthy damage bonus and a little regen is quite efficient - I've had a lot of fun with a W/R and D/R this way, and the paragon seems like another candidate for an easier IAS through NRA. Run as One is also available in Beast line for a rounded out rampage. 01:11, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Not to mention that you don't have to invest any attribute points to make it run... I also find this very useful, especially on warriors that don't need the energy for anything else. Justing6 User Justing6 Justing6 siggypic.png 08:11, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Why Isn't This A Hybrid With Comfort Animal[edit]

Given that this skill is PvE only, one would think that your pet would automatically come along when this skill is equipped (which would save a slot). Pets already consume a number of slots, so it would seem that adding this feature plus pet rez would be appropriate for a PvE only skill. In short a combo of Never Rampage Alone and Comfort Animal (except the direct healing from the CA). Lord Flynt (talk) 14:22, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
