Hello~
Does anyone know what the "Set: Augments Quick Draw" on the +2 pieces actually do?
So far we've learned about the lol "Enhances QD" on feet, but what about this other bonus?

I'm having trouble just getting seals for the +1 pieces. I've completed +1 legs and head on RNG and RDM far quicker than anything on COR. The head and leg seal quests are idiotic. The feet seal quest takes forever. The NM's I've done that drop COR seals typically drop BST and PUP for me.

So I haven't even thought about +2. Since we haven't even had the body and hand pieces released yet, I'd assume the set bonus properties will have to wait awhile.

Set bonuses on +2 work like campaign sets. Need two pieces to get the bonus and each piece after increases the effect.

My only fear is the set effect (like most sets) won't be an increase over a patchwork set of best pieces per slot. But I guess we will have to wait and see. I personally haven't seen any COR on Siren with +2 armour let alone 2-3 pieces

Ive seen many +2 cors running around. I think the first to have it all was the JP taru with the Death Penalty though.

Considering how incredibly, stupidly powerful BRD's set effect is, this better be great. Like actually inflicting the status effects the quick draw enhances, with quickdraw itself. Or making quickdraw inflict chainbound as if it was a ws of that element. If BRD's set makes carol II's 100% magic negation, quick draw better bring down satellites.

I'm a bit confused as to why you think its "lol."

The bonus on the feet is excellent.

All of the AF3+2 set bonuses increase for each piece you have equipped after the first (like Campaign sets). You don't need the whole set equipped for the bonus.

The strength of the BRD set is almost certainly unintentional, since none of the others are anywhere near that powerful.

Gettin a little bonus from the second shot only when you fire 2 times in a row isn't that great. It would only apply at the start of the battle basically, I don't wait for both charges before firing a QD again. Even for QD kite solo is useless.

Except its not just to QD, it gives a 10% damage bonus to all elemental damage on the mob of that type for 15 seconds.

Also, I believe with 3 CORs you can keep it up 100% of the time if its timed correctly.

That is more interesting if you can tag with a blm then. Still, it's nothing THAT special though.

And lol, I'm often the only cor even in a whole alliance(and I've barely seen other cors use QD at all <_< those **** bardlike wannabe!), though it would be cool to spam a QD that keeps multiplying XD

Nothing special until you look at Wildfire.

Also, obviously you're not gonna do a pickup ally on anything this QD rotation would be useful. Be for NMs and stuff.

THF's sounds great. 10% chance at triple damage on triple attack hits, and 20% with all 3 pieces. Especially if the next 2 pieces increase it the same amount, and you merit assassin's charge down, that'd be incredible. Haven't seen much on any of the other sets though. Still want to know what the pet hp dependent ones do, both in power, who they buff, and which end of the hp bar we're shooting for.

The THF one is good, but again its not nearly as powerful as BRDs.

Afaik none of the "Varies with HP" have any info on them at all (DRK, BST, PUP, SMN).

I guess you've been hanging out with the "cool kids". I've not seen a COR with +1 anything but feet yet. I think most people with COR are working on other jobs. There aren't that many dedicated COR's on my server, I think. TBH, I've only seen one person with Death Penalty.

I still need the feet piece and I've got 5/8 feet seals and 0/8 head and legs. This is going to be a long haul.

If the cool kids hang out in WG, then yeah. Most Cors on my server have 2/3, few have +2. I only need the head seals, to finish all my +1s. I could of had +2 by now but im targeting other gear atm, high to you armageddon, bullwhip, acc+25 body.

Most of mine do the same, but it seems they have acquired their af due to it going rot drop.

AF3+1/+2 enhances new rolls, so even if you /WHM and only do roll it's still useful to have.

Most assuredly they are except the new rolls are pretty low in their awesomeness. I'm rarely in a ranged only party or party or one handers. When I'm buffing DD its still usually Chaos Fighters or Chaos SAM.

Interestingly Bolters Roll is the only new roll that gets a ton of use lol.

Bolters sees the most use, I use Blitzer a lot as well, but I dont even have the ranged one.

I can't see a situation where I can really use Blitzer's roll, seeing how it totally just f*cks up X-hit builds. Wish they would have given us straight up haste... >_>

I do a lot of things with my DNC buddy and people with 1 hand weapons, so it doesnt matter as much as it does with 2 hand.

RR atma+ 1h weapon or h2h weapon=pwn (Although real haste still better)


For 2h DDs, if they're using VV atma, it's possible that they'll still maintain their x-hit because of regain.


With the power of RR and VV atma, it's possible that Blitzers now one of the best DD buff COR can give.

Fighter's and Chaos are the only 2 DD rolls worth using 99.9% of the time.

If you have 2 CORs, I could maybe see Blitzer's being used if you do like..Fighters/Chaos/SAM/Blitzer's.

RR is best used in conjunction with Crit WS's (not with H2H or DW weapons...) and pretty much nothing in the game is worth losing an x-hit build over.
