ok, a few problems.
first, sorry, but barrage wont cut it as an aoe skill.
it would be a cooler skill if it did.
ur tree actually loks similar to my planned RoA tree for the upcoming hybrid league.
ur gonna have to decide ur main AOE atk skill.
barrage+lgoh+faster is fine for single target tho if u wanna use it.
also, u honestly CANT plan a build for 120pts unless u get to lvl 90+ all the time.
aim for 60-80-100max.
IMO best plan for ur build is to drop goingfor iron grip and go head to ranger bow stuff.

yes even if u run pierce passives and pierce gem to make barrage usable for semi aoe,
u have at least 50 lvls till u get the passive pierce so that will work. DEF need alt main skill gem.
"projectile" dmg does increase Poison Arrow cloud dmg though.
at the very least you MUST drop the mara resists.
and take weathered hunter accuracy+resists or survivalist ranger eva+res.
