I'm just wondering, does the Rapid Shot trait from Corsair and /RNG stack and increase effect, or do does the /RNG have no effect at all? And if anyone knows what is the % increase of beater's, just wondering never on AH anyhow.

Traits of the same level do not stack. And as far as I know, nobody has the actual value that the mantle increases the rate of activation.

Although in my personal experience, "not enough" would be a sufficient answer <.<!

In all honesty thats enough of an answer for me. I'm just trying to figure out when /RNG is best and when /NIN is best. If not for gunbelt /NIN would be winning 30-60 in my book.

/NIN wins when you are pulling or when having easy access to shadows/sneak/invisi is important (ex nyzul)

/RNG wins when you want to do damage esp post 60. Little else beats 22 RACC/ACC, sharpshot, barrage, gun belt for a COR.

Each has it's role.

QFT.

Though I would add that /nin is only need for pulling FAST mobs, if you cannot pull Normal speed mobs w/o getting hit, time to go practice pulling solo near a zone line.

Also /rng get beaters earring to go with the gun belt.

As to the mantle it sucks. I have one, and since about a month after COR was first Released I have been trying to sell it. Here it is years later, and no one ever bought it off AH or Bazaars.

To OP: What made you think /nin wins 30-60? /rngs acc bonus > 1 more racc weapon (and acc bonus applys to melee attacks as well, nice to get he tp).
On top of that, /rng get +8 Racc, +5 Ratt is SJ activated latent items at 30, /nin just get an AGL +4 earring (and its hardly better than a drone a few levels higher).

I'm going to try and play it by ear since I have both SJ's leveled(as well as pretty much all others but dancer). I don't want to be an MP sponge is all.

I would try to get DNC leveled to 37 as well. Its a great SJ 60+ too add extra support to a party. I am unsure of the levels off /dnc JAs, but for some setups you can add a great deal of useful healing or even mp regen, as well as lower the def of mobs.

If you find yourself in party with say a pld tank and a blu or 2, then aspir samba can be a godsend. The pld and Blu(s) can keep powerhouse DD rolls and restore a nice chunk of mp every round.

Its nice to have such a versatile job that can use SJs to counter a specific party's weakness while still playing up their strengths.
