COR base Marks skill is 19 points lower than RNG, their ammo has 11 less DMG,
is just completely confusing, how can we be "out RNG'd" by a job with less skill AND weaker ammo using a weapon we can use to?
19 points of skill and 11 less dmg?? That's a small difference but how close does the addition of Hunter's + Chaos roll close this gap??
they can't get Snapshot merits, and (for now) they can't use Velocity Shot.
So we have this advantage until June, then all we have is what Snapshot and Rapid Shot merits??
Ok, I've tried for 2 days to figure you out doa, what exactly is the issue here?
My issue is they just gave COR a gun that's better than anything we've had for years besides anni.
I believe they are really blurring the line between COR & RNG and this just pushes even further.
do you not think the magian guns are strong enough?
No that's not the issue.
there are numbers saying its comparable to possibly better than HF+1 the current best non-relic.
are you upset cor is on it?
I don't know if it's just me but they could have solved it by giving them the ultimate QD gun or something, not a ranged weapon that's better than anything we've held for the past 7 years. Yes I have been holding my [Deadonarrival] Hellfire +1 for ~5+ of those.
you didn't really think they'd put in 2 guns and a bow?,
Yes, why? They added ~20 weapon possibilities for each weapon as it is, how hard would have it been to make a RNG branch and a COR branch.
Honestly I was expecting to see Bow, Xbow, Gun but I was wrong.
hell I'm surprised there was both a gun and a bow usable by rangers
They gave us A- in Marksmanship & A- in Archery it's been that way for years.
Bow has bandwagon for RNG for a long time and it's laughable. Unless these RNG have been rocking Ebow + Kab they've been getting out damaged by Obow/DST rng forever.
I would not have put them past just doing a bow for rng and making the gun cor only.
This is exactly what I hoped would have happened, but SE let me down again. =(
That's why I'm off in Inner Horotu camping PLM mobs. :\
Not to mention most cors won't even bother with the "occ. attacks twice" guns if testing finds out it works just like joy-toy i.e. doesn't double attack on WS
Really? They have an option of WS -> RA -> RA -> WS assuming they have 45% proc and it's not double damage, who wouldn't want a 3-4 hit build??
cors by and large don't shoot for tp, a double attacking gun is, in terms of finances and quite often efficiency, a poor choice.
LOL economics??? Don't play the job if your too poor and don't know how to make money in this game. You know the cost of the jobs before playing them, this is one of the worst excuses in FF.
Yes I understand mellee'ing for TP is superior and that I can support this but not cost. I've pissed away more millions in gil on ammo then people have even seen in their FF careers.
so could you please enlighten me as to your issue with the magian trials for marksmanship, you seem awfully upset and I just can't figure out the reason.
Please don't take it as a personal attack but yes I am pissed off greatly.
I've been around since 03 before they nerfed RNG initially, I've taken all the ups and downs. I've stuck with this job at the worst and this is the kind of sh*t they do to make it right?? No not at all they just killed my will to play RNG when a COR can do it the same and buff the rest of the group.
If COR could wear kclub I would sell all my RNG gear and just finish my COR.
/rant off, sorry guys but hey atleast it's something to new to read about it in this dead RNG forum.
