Thats pretty @#%^ing awesome, IDK how hard the ENM is, but I know I will be trying to spam that once I get to 60 for those damn bullets. Gogo SlugShot only ammo. Corsair version of PPA only with 99 of them.

It's too bad the base damage is so terrible you'd have almost no reason to use them.

The ENM is ridiculously easy to get to and do. Also, they do make for a pretty nice barrage bullet to guarantee max TP output.

The Corsair Bullets can be used for high lv skill ups also since there gunna be pretty damn common now. Also I've seen normal Bullet Pouches and Steel Bullet Pouches drop in union which is great!

To bad though alchemist get another kick in the balls though. :(

Screw alchemists. COR have already been getting a kick in the balls by having only such expensive ammo available to them. And in my experience, the alchemist community don't have any sympathy for COR - Steel Bullets aren't crafted very often, and sellers frequently price gouge due to the low supply. NQs make a modest profit, and anyone who can HQ with any regularity at all makes a nice chunk of change.

Time to share some of the getting-kicked-in-the-ballsness with our alchemist friends.

Exactly, that's why I refuse to use Steel Bullets casually, and why SE needs to put COR on other ammo, hell Silver/Gold Bullets I rarely see RNGs use yet they've always been more in supply than Steel lately..even normal Bullets aren't in mass supply these days.

Corsair Bullet's may be low base damage, but iirc Iron Bullets are 55 dmg, and Corsair Bullet's are 57 damage, yet it's fairly common to find CORs Tping with Iron Bullets and WS/QD/Barrage with Steel Bullets, so now that Corsair Bullets can become very common, yeah it's a good thing, we'll finally start getting another ammo choice since SE only released new low level bullets (that people rarely make also...)

I remember being told that if I leveled the crafts, Steel Bullets would be cheaper.. From what I can see after getting into crafting, that depends on your server. If they're 20k/99 yes.. If they're 14k/99, it may be best to not even bother. No matter what you do, Steel Ingots/Firesand will cost you.

It's funny when you hear it compared to Silver Bullets.. I can craft Silver Ingots for cheap - 315g ore means 1,260g for an ingot. Steel Ingots are ~4,000g per, even if you make them yourself (and a much higher synth...). I'm still skilling up on them at 52 Smithing. I haven't tried the recipe with Djinn Ash yet, but the time spent farming that isn't going to save you much overall.

But yes.. Alchemists rarely craft Steel Bullets, and when they do, they generally gouge it.. So screw 'em.

Best source of Steel ingots I have found are to desynth. Head out to Beadeaux(spelling) and kill the quadavs for the helmets. You can step outside into Pashow for your lightning clusters. Doing this is a bit slow and tedious but makes everything you do 100% free. Plus you can darksteel ingots which also sell well.

Truelly thought the Best desynth ive found is Goblin mail. Retardly hard to farm, but you can get 2 steel ingots from I believe a tier 1 hq.

well I've officially stopped levelling Alchemy. No point really if prices on these bullets keep falling. Even if I could HQ steel, i'm not likely going to beat 8-10k/stack which is where the price is headed. Given it takes me a while to go through a stack, I can farm for that easily.

Now if only card pouches would fall in campaign >.>
