Does Pierce have a max or can I get 100% pierce? Is it nerfed in any difficulties or verse any bosses?

I think with my testing my low lvl Amazon that pierce works on guided arrow but maybe only once and so the max number of times I can hit a monster with guided arrow is 2. Is that correct?

I haven't tested with v2.1 specifically, but I've done some tests with GArrow, and it's a bit odd (the arrow graphic doesn't always mean that the missile is alive and hitting things). That side, I haven't seen a way to nerf it (or %Pierce) with Difficulty or vs specific targets, so maxing your %Pierce at 100% is a reasonable strategy.

One thing to keep in mind is that although GArrow ignores enemy defense, it can still miss (the graphic will only seems to disappear if the target blocks or the missile's duration is finished) since the ToHit formula considers the level difference between the player and monster.

My testing was over a year ago, so I don't remember too many details for determining when the arrow graphic was still alive and hitting things (it might be dead after the first hit regardless of the graphic), but I vividly remember seeing dozens of arrow graphics (I had set their duration to about 60 seconds) swarming a Fallen while doing nothing.

100% pierce will make it pierce and attempt to hit for the entire duration of the missile which is why it's pretty much mandatory to have. I know if it's blocked it dies and most bosses/minibosses have a 20-50% chance to block. It can hit way more than twice but it depends on the distance you were from your target when fired. At point blank range you would get a lot of hits. I don't remember the missile duration but obviously longer travel time means fewer hits.
