The Corsair Cheatsheet: Link IndexFollow

Of the three stickied threads in this forum, two are "maintained" by people that have not posted to the COR forum in over a year; given the massive adjustments that have been made to COR in that time, much of the information contained in said FAQs is horribly out-of-date and no longer relevant. Taking into account the recent announcement of a new wiki'ed FAQ system, I thought it would be a good idea to make an updated index (and hopefully, a new, current sticky for this forum to replace the outdated ones).

So without further ado, here's a list of relevant links for the modern Corsair:

General Information
1. The Compiled Information on Corsair by Trinitee (how to unlock the job, among a lot of other obsoleted day 1 info, for posterity's sake)
2. Corsair Artifact Quests by Eckskalibur
3. Subjobs for Pirates by PavFeira
4. Corsair expenses from 22-75 by redvenomweb
5. Store TP tiers for melee Corsairs by kylen
6. Another Corsair guide (offsite) by Callisto
7. Dissecting a Weaponskill by akisushiva (impact of +stats on WS)

Equipment Guides
1. Corsair gun guide by Daleven (in-depth gun discussion)
2. Corsair Equipment Guide by Delekii (covers everything but guns)
3. The Pirate's Booty by Carrilei (a more up-to-date equipment guide)

Phantom Roll related
1. Phantom Roll FAQ by redvenomweb (extensive data containing most of the community knowledge on Phantom Roll)
2. Updated Phantom Roll numbers by dyvidd (contains most of the tests covering the post 8/27/07 changes to Phantom Roll)
3. Phantom Roll Calculator (offsite) by kylen (Excel spreadsheet with probabilities and expected averages for all known roll values; updated frequently)
4. Phantom Roll: Knowing the Odds (offsite) by Karinya (shows the outcome probabilities for different rolling strategies, based on risk)
5. Thread referencing JP COR wiki (alla won't let me directly link the translated wiki itself, which contains many roll tests)

Quick Draw related
1. Updated Quick Draw tests (contains a number of Quick Draw tests following the 12/18/06 changes to Quick Draw)
2. Ballista Quick Draw tests (offsite) by Delekii (tests of QD enhancement on Bio, Dia, ninjutsu, and songs)
3. More Ballista Quick Draw tests (offsite) by Archain (tests of QD enhancement on Bio, Dia, songs, blue magic, and acid bolts)

Suggestions are always welcome.

That gear guide of mine is incredibly out-dated now, and I am not particularly inclined to keep it up to date. If anyone wanted to use it as a base to create a new, more relevant guide, please, be my guest.

All I can contribute it to nominate this thread for sticky status. Head over to the thread on Feedback Forum to yea or nay it.

Awesome.

Edit: Another cool Phantom Roll post that you might want to add is Phantom Roll: Knowing the Odds by Karinya. It's not really an optimal rolling strategy guide as much as it is an analysis of Phantom Roll outcome probabilities given various rolling strategies, but the math behind it is sound.

Amazing guide RVW! I never knew half of those topics even existed, and I just got a bunch of great info from a few of those topics. Thanks much! ^_^

No offense, but not putting in my insightful COR/THF thread is a vast oversight ;-;

BTW, I've been thinking about trying an equip guide.. But it's such a huge thing, and I'd want to do it **** well.. I wish I had more time ~.~; Maybe I'll try it section by section..

RWV, could you add this guide to your cheat sheet? It's fairly informative, up-to-date, and a very fun read.

Hey kids! I haven't totally forgotten about you. I fixed the broken links mentioned by koromaseraph (Alla changed its internal post linking code), as well as updating the Roll Calculator spreadsheet with the data on most of the new rolls; I also fixed the link to the spreadsheet file (as it pointed at my old website).

Happy rolling!

Wow! My spreadsheet lives on!! :). Looking back I think that may be one of the things I'm most proud of from my time in FFXI. Nice job keeping it updated!
