Hunting arrow is regarded by players as an overall great skill for the marking that will increase damage for other skills. The only negative comments were about the low damage. Since the Ranger is classified as a mix of damage and defense, Ranger players think it is unfair that hunting arrow deals the lowest damage from the 3 basic skills, and the shot itself is also slow moving.  However it can be argued that it is fair based on the fact that the hunting arrow is mostly used to mark an enemy for a deadly precision shot.
