This probably should be mentioned now. The use of Arcane Missiles with Barrage cutting off the last missile to get the damage bonus on both is considered by some to be an oversight by Blizzard. Some people will argue that you are "Cheating" by making use of this "Exploit." Whether it is a bug or not, it is certainly in the game, and in wide use among arcane mages to increase damage.I would take this argument with a grain of salt, however. Shatter combos were considered a glitch for some good deal of time, but it would seem that they are still in the game and accepted as a valid use of game mechanics. If it needs to be fixed, it will be. If blizzard decides that the "Arcane Shatter," as it is often called, is a fun mechanic, they may design and balance around it.
