I'd like to hear more about this also. I haven't tried to solo much of anything on my COR but am interested to see how people make it work. I have a decent QD set but tend to get resisted severely on stuff like sky gods and nyzul bosses etc.
My elemental QD set consists of... AF+1 hat, ugg pendant, moldy earring, drone earring, denali body, crimson hands (haven't picked up an AGI piece and use this to manipulate my MP on /non mage to proc ugg), garrulous ring, emerald ring, commodore cape, scouters rope, denali legs and crimson feet (for ugg proc, otherwise AF+1 feet).
Typically have martial gun on cuz I don't have a Corsair's Gun +1.
So I have MAB +16 when ugg procs, and AGI +38 ish...
I have all 8 elem staves but not all the HQs. Typically only carry ice n earth cards for the slow/para boosts. Have HQ ice, don't have HQ earth.
So considering this, what types of things can I reasonably do (read: dropping 17M on novio is not reasonable lol) to boost my QDs.
Now that I have a mog satchel and more space, i'd be more willing to carry all types of cards. have HQ thunder and wind staves. Have considered fire and earth but they both costs around 600K atm.
