So basically I recently started FFXI, and COR has become my main job.
I have no high-ish level COR friends, so I have no one to ask for help with COR or see if I'm doing stuff right.
I am a COR/NIN most of the time, I would do COR/RNG but honestly it's way too expensive shooting for TP at my level, and I take all the hate and die because I don't have shadows. I dual wield a decent DPS sword or dagger in my mainhand, and an Archer's Knife in my offhand. I read on here that if you're meleeing as COR, using 2 RACC weapons is retarded, since you don't have any real DPS. So yeah, I use Archer's Knife in offhand for the +RACC since I use gun wses not dagger or sword.
All my gear is +AGI, DEX, ATK, ACC, and RACC, but mostly RACC and AGI.
As for fighting, I melee until I get 100% TP, then stand back outside of weapon range and use my range WS.
For rolls, usually I start off with either Hunter's or Chaos roll, which I put on all the frontline jobs, if there is a RNG in the pt I always use Hunter's roll, and make sure they get hit with it. I try and always have COR roll on everyone, unless the pt sucks and it's taking forever to kill mobs, so then I put RNG and DRK roll on everyone until the fight is about to end, then I throw up COR roll, for the boosted exp. I usually don't bother with Healer's roll unless, once again, the party is hella slow or taking a rest.
I am a 36 COR/NIN.
I use a DD sword or knife in mainhand, Archer's Knife in offhand.
My gear is mostly RACC+ and AGI+, which I swap for ACC and DEX while I am meleeing.
I stand back and WS with gun as soon as I'm at 100%.
I use COR roll and switch between RNG and DRK roll, mostly.
So yeah, what should I be doing different?
