Defensive buffs probably work better when you lowman stuff and lack support/heals, or when situations getting bad that you need to try harder to stay alive.
This roll may work better for lowman situations IMO. COR doesn't have many good defensive buffs, only has evasion/magic def bonus roll and it doesn't make a very huge game breaking difference. I guess it's nice to have another one. Although I was expecting PDT- roll or some sort.
If you did 4 VW events a week, you're looking at like 2 stacks of steel, 6 stacks of bronze, 2 card cases and 2 stacks of sushi... 60k+90k+40k+40k=230k. How the heck you're spending 1mil I just don't know unless you're including the cost of Voiddust and Cells which doesn't count as everyone buys them - not just cor.
I use a little over 30 cards a fight, and typically 50-120-ish Bronze and 50-100 Oberon's depending on the mob. I don't use Steels if I can avoid it. I use about 6 sushi per fight, more on dicks like Pil, considering I always get hate and die, more than once. I rock hard and roll harder on pirate, lol.
My linkshell has a habit of calling fake Marksmanship procs when they want me to stop ripping hate off the tanks and use crap WS for a bit, lol.
I will have my revenge!
Sounds about the same rate as me, just bumped up the numbers to show even when over-exaggerating, it should be nowhere near as much as 1mil. I tend to hold off after taking hate once as Hard fights have nasty AoEs that will one-shot you if weakened and you can't DD at all double weak. On easier fights like city T4s I tend to only DD during staggers as otherwise they die too quick.
Eh? I said per fight, lol. Not per event / 4-12 fights. When I get hate, I tend to just pop Fanatic's/Fool's and beat the shit out of whatever dared to look at my Corsair the wrong way, lol.
I will have my revenge!
you think its expensive now? HA! Just wait until Last Stand is available. 2 hit weaponskill that we need to use our best bullets for Q.Q. I go through stacks of arrows like candy when I'm spamming Jishunu's on rng. Whenever Armageddon does more damage, I breathe a sigh of relief because I can save my arrows.
I was planning to try it myself to see how effective it is, but I took a break after update and no longer play enough, and I can't find some of the good enmity- gears on AH everywhere as well since no one's selling it, so it kinda hold off. With next update coming soon I probably need to save my merits and won't be able to change my merit to enmity- to reach cap anyways.
I'm not 100% sure it will be more effective without actually use it in practice, I saw someone else used it, so wanted to try myself. Just tossing out an idea here if hate is an issue.

I don't let Fanatics wear! I may have been highballing a bit according to find's ammo tracker from the other night, but not by too much. Actual bronze usage ended up being about 40/fight on T3 Jeuno. Oberon's usage was higher though, as the NMs decided to be dicks and dispel my rolls over and over, and Trump cards were still about 20-30 a fight depending on how fast they were. As long as there is some sort of proc every 2 minutes or so, I'll have Fanatics up at least 50% of the time, and plenty of Lucid potions and Fool's to spam in the meantime (I also get cures, so it's not like I just drop if I have hate). My gun shots take longer to fire than a melee round, so as long as the melees tanking it have capped hate too the mob won't be on me fulltime unless QD charges are up.
Don't get me wrong, I do die, but since I'm typically living off temp items anyways I'm typically able to unweak before dying a second time.
Oberon's prices have finally dipped again though, which has helped. They were 700k/stack on my server for a long while (causing the vast majority of my expenditures), and are now back down to 400k. I'm not entirely sure what causes these market fluctuations, but they save me cash! The original point was that Corsair is expensive as balls anyways, which I'm sure we can agree on.
I will have my revenge!
