If someone is feared, can you fear them again for increased duration?

Can I fear someone with Scourge ability 4, then 5 staff, then Warhorn 4, then Spectral Ring? Skill order might be different, regardless, just 4 fear skills in conjunction. Granting they don't break the fear, is it possible to fear someone for 8 seconds in constant fear? Hypothetically? OR! Do the effects have to wear off before someone can be feared again?

You can fear a player consecutively, however fear is a unique condition in that both stun break and condition removal get rid of it. Additionally stability makes you immune. Given easy stability access in competitive, ultimately this means that it is quite unlikely to fear a player in competitive mode for more then a short duration. This is also why terror, dread and other traits reliant on fearing a player in competitive don't work very well.

Yes it is possible. Fear is a condition and it stacks in duration.

But as mentioned above it has counters. I disagree that fear builds are bad. Terror mancer can be a great pick, provided you know which fights to take.
Avoid big 5v5 rumbles because aoe stab or cleanses are very likely to happen.

On a side node however terrormancer can be diamonds. Fears are great for forcing enemies off a node and keeping them off while you decap.
Also they're great for condition builds. Your other condies tick their damage while you fears interrupt and disable attempts at healing or getting on top of you.
And ofc don't forget boon corrupts. Stab may deny fear,  but it can become one if corrupted.
