Ryan's Impartial Shot is basically what Icicle Rain Shower should be. >_>
Stuck in cooldown? With a 8- sec Ice Bomb and a 14- sec Ice Rain Shower? You're doing something wrong, then.
And Ice Rain Shower is fine. It does more dmg per hit than Ryan's Impartial Shot, and that more than makes up for it. If you find it difficult to get 6+ hits with IRS on an unflinchable mob or boss, you're doing it wrong. For Yuki, her low cooldown allows for her to survive with only two or three attack skills. If you have Ice Bomb, Ice Rain Shower, and Cold Blue Dragon, you're pretty much all set for dmg. In Myth, add Ice Dragon's Heart and rb Ice Giant's Fist.
IMO, Ryan is a mix of constant and burst damage, where his skills do mainly do burst dmg and his >>AS does constant dmg.
Arien is burst dmg, with her Scattering Wind, Lightning Arrow, Violent Strong Blast, Edge of Storm, and Max Thunder Fragment. It's a shame she can't repeatedly use her >>AS over and over like Ryan. If she could, that would be a great source of dmg too.
In terms of burst dmg, it would go Arien > Ryan, Yuki.
If you want someone who can quickly rack up the air combo count for the multiplier, it's Yuki > Ryan > Arien.
