How does one Cluster bomb effectively in WvW?

Also any tips and tricks for hitting people on walls or behind gates? I found targetting the roof above the gate helps, and the very top corner of the highest point of the wall but not sure if I am missing something.

For wall hits, I try to aim for the bottom lip of the wall, or the middle of the gate. Gate is stationary, as you'll hit anyone repairing or nearby, but for the wall I'll always change my target slightly for each shot to compensate for the movement of players, as they'll always move after 2 shots minimum. Not a problem with NPCs, but it's rare to find an actual player stupid enough to stand still for that many hits, considering how long it takes for the cluster bomb arc to hit.
One random tip, if you're on a wall, make sure to target any downed enemies with a cluster bomb barrage, You're bound to hit both them and at least one random who's decided to try and res.

No really, My suggestion is to predict your target. Where are they going to be? Shoot there and 9 time out of 10 they will run right into it.

I like to set my cluster bomb off just after it has gone past the apex of it's curve, so just after it's reached is maximum height and is starting to fall, I've found this to give good spread but still hit what I'm aiming at.
It mostly boils down to practise since the best time to detonate it is gonna be different everytime, just watch out on your HP and surroundings when you are firing up at a wall, it's hard to see what's going on sometimes when you're concentrating on hitting stuff.s

Cluster Bomb is literally one of the best thief skills available out of all weapon sets. I actually JUST posted a thief video of group play in the pvp videos thread and it mainly showcases large scale AOEing. It might give you some ideas of where to place a cluster bomb.
"Literally one of the best" is just...such a stupid thing to say, I'm sorry if that sounded mean, but how would one even take that figuratively?
But I do agree with the "one of the best"...it's clunky and you'll hate it at first, but once you start getting used to its speed, you'll be able to hit targets with greater accuracy. Critting 10ks on undergeared underleveled noobs, feelsgoodman
