What do you do when BA is dispelled, or you're swapping targets?
If black arrow gets dispelled, the cd is refreshed, so I just reapply it. Swapping just go on your target without your black arrow really, unless you have it up for the swap. You're not 100% dependent on it, more of your damage is from explosive (and lnl procs), so if you just have those it's fine.
I thought Black Arrow>explosive shot? I guess CD gets in the way
Sort of, it's very important to keep up black arrow, but it's important to explosive as soon as possible especially when first opening, and then applying black arrow. You want to always have explosive on cd.
