Water shots were doing like 530 on him unresisted so it was a quick fight.


Hmm, seems pretty high. My QD set is pretty solid (lacking novio but I've got a fair chunk of AGI/MAB, and 5 combos of HQ staff/obi to work with). Last time I fought him with a pt, i seem to remember my ice shots doing 375 ish. Wiki claims he's weak to wind so maybe i'll try that a try. Already have the obi for it.


No Obi :(

Hmm, Cheesy isn't weak to water (well, according to wiki he's not). How do your other shots compare on him? Wiki doesn't say Wulgaru is weak to water either but I know from hearing about it that water shot owns him. Starting to wonder if water shot has some weird "does more dmg, is somehow better" thing going on. lol

Like I said, I got to about 377 on ice shot with /rdm, HQ staff and a grip on. Didn't have obi on because it wasn't iceday or weather. Not sure I can improve my QD dmg by 160 any time soon lol. Only major pieces i'm missing are novio (dont have a sea LS atm), mirke (got the WS version). Have ugga, moldy, denali kecks MAB wise and a pretty strong AGI build.

Edit: wondering if the locations of those two ZNMs (both in ruins, underwater where water weather is some frequent) is the answer.

in double water weather, it's almost impossible to not do well with water shot on anything that is down there.

on Wulgaru, ~500 water shots is about right with decent gear. **** I don't even have denali pants. That's really the only thing I still need (aside from Novio)

Cor lvl 60! Now I look like a pirate :P well, I will in 2 days, I got 55-60 in one day so I'm a little behind on the crafted AF. Also pulled chain 27 (then someone had to go afk) on lesser colibri in lvl 57 sync party. The leader said I'm the best puller he's ever seen at that level ^_^ we had a 75 brd syncing down after some reps who pulled when I got tired of it, and leader tried to get me to pull again after a while. ^_^;;

Also, slug shot is fun! I just wish it wouldn't miss so much at 200 tp. :/

Yeah, I messed around with water shot (and the other QDs i didn't carry before) on Armed Gears yesterday. Highest I landed was a 463 water shot. Considering it's seemingly always double water in the ruins and there's 2 ZNMs I could solo in there, I've talked myself in getting a water obi lol. Just when I thought I was done with sea... not so much.

Time to camp Limbus again.. I must say, one thing that has happened multiple times now.. Is, I'll ask a Temenos party leader if they're willing to sell Silkworm Thread before I Tele-Holla and head down there.. I get no response, and then half an hour later I get a tell saying it dropped. I'd be done by now if people would respond; at least acknowledge my /tell. But no, they expect me to be a mind reader.


Yes... I run into this a lot too, I don't understand why they can't say SOMETHING.

Got AF+1 Boots and Hat the hard way (2x a week Limbus for the past 10 or so months and got the drops), but we get pretty awful drop rates on COR. Between me and the other COR, we have 2 Boots, 1 Hat, and he's sitting on 1 Apollyon item waiting for the thread to get his 2nd upgrade. For over half of the jobs stuff is free lot or trashed, we don't really have much desire for a whole lot of AF+1 mats for most jobs... but COR is one of them. Now we have a 3rd LS member with COR70+ though, so even more competition.

I'll hit up party leaders in Limbus with an offer to buy COR items when I have free time, but I've never actually either (a) had them agree and the item actually drop, or (b) bother responding until it's too late. For that reason, now I tend to just wait until I'm gonna be doing something else around the house for a couple hours, change to COR/WHM and teleport, run into the Apollyon/Temenos lobby, and check for parties every few minutes. I put a /seacom up, ask the leaders, etc. Never any luck with a merc limbus drop though...

Unlike slug shot, detonator is pretty accurate. Pile on STR and rattack, AGI also and keep a little Racc. You can definitely put far more STR on than slug shot and hit them very consistently.

As for my latest achievement: didn't do it on my COR but it affects my COR and I read this forum fair more often than the SAM forum so...

Parrying 269 FTW! COR skills capped across the board FTW. Of course, with ranged attacks and quick draw kiting, you'd wonder why we need capped parrying.... but once I got over 240 I decided it was something I wanted to go for. Martial master helps a ton. Can reliably get 2-3 skillsups an hour (skill up as in .1 .2 or .3, not skill levels).

Spent most of my time in the tree SAM/DNC with Tomoe. Once I got over 260 and DCs more often than not were worthless, I'd pull an EM or a T and then pull a DC also and kill the DC first while the T/EM continued to attack me. Solves the lack of skillable mobs problem.

264+ i went to rancor and was able to beat the lvl 76 pucks but the 77s were too strong initially. Seriously, these are FAR nastier than the Korrigans in the tree. Decided to pop tacos to increase my D and was able to take out the 77s as well. The room is right next to a zone line so that helps if trouble and you can also zone out DCs until they become Ts.

Other cool thing was hit a 509 QD on cheese rat. First time I've broken 500 so was happy about that. Did it with a pt but will probably get an Iriz pop tonight after work and use her to attempt my first COR solo. Of the 4 I think I can do (her, rat, Chigre, Wulgaru), she's the one i'm most confident about.

The 25 Bazubands dropped last night in ZR.
Unforutnately, it's pretty hard to beat your fellow group member lotting a 990+, lol. We'll get more though, I'm confident - and he already had the 35 to boot.

^_^ Makes soloing in ruins so much easier when you pump numbers out like that, lol.

Also, did a 2700~ damage slug without soul voice on a g.colibri!

I'm thinking of grabbing a few NQ Corsair Guns and trying to augment them.

Fairly low cost and any QD relevant stat could make it rival the HQ (which doesn't seem to exist).

first, cg on the positive augments for those who got. At some point soon I think I'll try my luck.

Got my anwig 1/1 and apparently one of the people in the BC with me frapped it and slapped it on Youtube lol. Was a crazy fight. The SAM died 3 times, I died once, WHM and BLM were struggling to keep their MP up.

Then last night I finally decided to try solo Iriz on COR. Was ridiculously easy but time consuming. I was hitting QDs around 380-408 on average. Was no weather, only the day of the week (water, then wind). Fight lasted close to an hour, not sure. Got hit only once the entire time when I tried to be cut and spam 2 QDs back-to-back lol.

Congrats on your wins^^... I'm trying to complete Moogle, been sitting at the Throne Room door for a day now.. And, I keep getting declined. Which is no big deal, just a bit unlucky that so many I can find are already 6/6.

However, 2 things have been odd and downright messed up. First of all, the latest group to go past me had a BLU that didn't even need the fight (was only on the Quicksand Caves part). They lost, I saw them go in again.. Aside from that, in getting turned down I've heard "no BF" mentioned several times. Now, it's rare that I don't know what something means, but this had me stumped. A friend found that Novio means 'boyfriend' in Spanish (and Novia 'girlfriend,' if anyone's interested); that's the only possible thing I can come up with. Aside from the fact that I was idling in my WS gear, and they wouldn't know if I owned a Novio or not.. That'd just be insane, to turn a COR down because they didn't have Novio. I'm planning on Novio being my last big-ticket item, but if you're gonna turn me down for not having Novio, you might as well do so for not having Dusk +1 and Speed Belt too... If anyone knows what this 'BF' means, I'd like to know lol.


I've also entered not one, but TWO Shadow Lord fights by accident.. That's how insane I've gotten up there, so I just bloodported for now ~.~..
