Looks like the update introduced some unexpected issues with at least two archer skills.
The below change
Earth Shatter (I to Absolute) - Fixed the issue where you would recover MP via the Sunfall effect after using the skill.
Did not just remove MP recovery on Sunfall that follows the Earth Shatter, but completely removed the MP recovery from Earth Shatter when Sunfall is also cast. This probably doesn't matter for most of the Archer players that already have the infinite MP potion, however, for lower level Archers this severly breaks the flow of the grinding, since you can't reliably replenish MP anymore with Earth Shatter.
Additionally, Arrow Explosion  hitbox has been clearly changed. It seems that it's way shorter and very inconsistent. Before the update standing in front of a mob pack and casting Arrow Explosion would apply damage to all of them. After the update, not only the mobs in the back are usually not hit at all, but every now and then a couple of mobs in the middle do not get damaged at all. The skill is pretty much completely unusable in PvE.

Just guessing, but it seems like the multiple hits were not just in timing, but in the location they were applied too.  I think I saw someone else mention that here on another thread.  So when they reduced hits / upped damage, they also changed where that damage lands.  Which would be consistent with the animation issues that people have been reporting, that they no longer correspond accurately with the actual damage application.

Small suggestion for the people struggling with MP recovery post update: Make sure to unlearn Sunfall. It might slow down the clear in some places, but only casting Earth Shatter will keep you topped on MP all the time.
