I've never seen a single COR actually DD, so goddammit, I'm going to do it. I've only seen two /RNG, but neither of them used Barrage or shot except to "pull" with light shot, which amounted to the party running to the mob. I've been wanting to work COR for a while and after I finish up WAR, I'll be starting on it (with capped marksmanship for 75 WAR no less so syncing won't bother me for a long time). I plan to have the best gear, spare no expense on bullets, etc. I have a 75 BRD, so I know how to pull and buff at 2400km/h, but I'll run around with a search comment refusing to pull in favor of pure DD. They have just as much of a right to not invite me as I have to not pull, so I won't feel bad if they don't invite.
Anyway, what sort of damage can I expect from COR for something like the ACP final fight? I don't expect a COR to beat RNG or anything in damage (most of the time), but the buffs and ranged damage would justify its spot anyway (and I know how crazy COR can get with its abilities, subjob abilities, and 2 hour). How would it compare to SAM/RNG for something like that? I've already beaten the fight, but there's a lot of fights where I find that all 6 of my jobs at 75 are basically unwanted, and I'd rather be a stylish DD COR than a RNG or a bulletless COR or a bandwagon SAM any day. Rather, for those BCNM fights where every one orgasms for RNGs, how well does a COR do?
