Community Corsair Guide
Introduced in TOAU expension, COR is one of FFXI's support class with DD ability.
- Ability to fit in all the setup
In FFXI, there are primarily 4 different setups depending on DD type: pet setup, melee setup, mage setup and ranged setup. COR is one of a very few job that fits into all 4 setup and still have the ability to contribute as a support job and DD job.
- Versatile DD playstyle
COR has access to magical, ranged, melee and none elemental damage, plus the ability to gain tp without having to engage the NM. This gives the job incredibly wide range of tools to counter NM mechanics and contribute in different situations.
- Strong lowman job
With the ability to self buff, COR is a pretty efficient lowman class in a party size smaller than 3.

For group 1 merit category, 5/5 Quick Draw Recast is must have, then 5/5 Phantom Roll Recast or 5/5 Quick Draw Accuracy, or split between them. Light and Dark shot usually need Quick Draw Accuracy a lot more than damage dealing elemental shots.
For group 2 merit category, 1/5 Fold, 1/5 Loaded Deck, 3/5 Snake Eye, 5/5 Winning Streak is more useful in endgame event because it allows COR to full time Crooked Card bonus on one roll, and jump between different parties and give rolls for different roles.
1/5 Fold, 1/5 Loaded Deck, 5/5 Snake Eye, 3/5 Winning Streak is more useful in short spammable fights such as Ambuscade and Hard Mode Mission Battles in which extra roll duration isn't relevant. This is because double-up on 6 and bust is not ideal in these fights due to how time consuming it is to reroll, instead it's more ideal to Snake Eye on 6+ for a chance to get No.11. With 5/5 Snake eye merit, there is higher chance to get a free No.11 from Snake Eye.
