For seg farming specifically, I've basically gone back to Sublime Sushi. On all my jobs, I've found with Grape Daifuku that I wiff a bit on the top floors of B/C. I haven't had time to look at my sets, I could probably change some things and still maintain capped acc without it, but for now it's sushi until I figure it out.

Typically running with just Honor, Victory, 3x Minuet or 2x minuet + 1 Etude.

Most groups I've run with have BRD swap lowest Minuet for a Madrigal for the final floor.

Yes, you don't need +potency for double up
Getting correct readings from the rolltracker addon is the only reason for using potency+ gear.
Don't you need to be wearing Rostam Path C during double up to get the 11 roll bonus?

Is it better to CC+Samurai Roll or CC+Chaos Roll?

Looking at a 13% atk increase vs +16 STP (assuming +8 rolls and job bonus) with crooked cartds.

Unless you're already way over atk cap I generally crooked the Chaos

Anyone use the lua in this guide? One weird issue I'm having is that if I'm in melee range and use Leaden Salute, it will not change my belt to my Eschan Stone. If I'm at a decent distance, it will. I know the lua has a section for equipping Orpheus's Sash when you're close but I don't own one. I tried changing Orpheus's Sash to Eschan Stone in the lua but it still doesn't change it.

Suggestions?

It's working correctly the way you described it. You WANT orpheus sash for melee range leadens

I get that. I said I do not own Orpheus's Sash. So I tried replacing "Orpheus's Sash" with "Eschan Stone" in the lua and it still doesn't swap anything when I WS in melee range.

The weather/darksday part does work with no-obi.

He said he doesn’t own one, and changed the lua to reflect that, but it still doesn’t change properly.

Try putting a —- before the rule.

I thought about that but wasn't exactly sure which line would do that without messing up the part that switches to Obi for darksday/weather.

All it does is runs
Code
equip({waist="Orpheus's Sash"})


when the conditions are met. There are four instances of this. If you've changed all four, post your whole file here and we'll see what's wrong.

Any recommendations on how to share? I assume nobody wants me copying/pasting my lua contents... I've not shared a file in years.

EDIT: I tried doing the code button but it said "too many characters"

I ended up using that other LUA you can find when you google. It appears to be working as I need however, there is nothing in the lua about using your WS at close range and equipping Orpheus for when I obtain one some year.

Same as year ago except R25 Nyame 5/5.
Ikenga's Body R25 if you are overcapping attack.

Some things to consider; Ikenga body has 190tp bonus and -10enmity.

Under the assumption you have tp bonus gun equipped ontop of moonshade you're already at minimum 2250 effective TP, so would the TP bonus outweigh the wsd/acc/atk nyame provides?

190tp bonus should be the equivalent to a 6% increase in fTP, even at 1000 TP (With the other TP Bonus gear). If you've over TP'd at all though, it might not be useful. 6% fTP is huge compared to 10-12% WSD in that slot.

If you're also making use of the PDL, it's definitely no contest.

6% fTP is definitely not "huge" compared to 10-12 WSDMG. Nyame would solidly win unless you're able to make use of the PDL and not over TPing by very much.

You're right. R25 Nyame provides an effective bonus of 1.41% over Ikenga in terms of effective fTP (AKA not considering WSC or PDL).

So unless you are taking advantage of PDL, or you are < 2000 (Not using TP bonus gun), Nyame should win unless you are at attack cap.

Edit: Considering all other slots BiS.

Even assuming the worst case positive scenario for 190TP bonus, that it would push you from 2810 to 3000, that's still +5% damage.

+7%PDL, 5% damage from fTP should easily beat 12%WSD, MND+12 and STR+2 in situation when you still cap att and acc with Ikenga.

If anybody is interested in maintaining the sets in the guide, please send me a PM. I know a lot of people were following the guide, I kinda feel bad about abandoning it.

Bumping this message, the guide is incredibly well structured and helpful, if any of the active COR veterans is willing to take ownership of updating the guide with latest sets, please reach out to Arislan via PM. Thank you!

Any updates on Wave3 accuracy gear? Admittedly I haven't followed Odyssey gear updates for COR as much as I should have, but I imagine something good comes from it.

Last post I saw on wave3 accuracy gear (from 2020) recommended:
Code
sets.engaged.DW = {
        head="Adhemar Bonnet +1",neck="Iskur Gorget",ear1="Eabani Earring",ear2="Cessance Earring",
        body="Adhemar Jacket +1",hands="Adhemar Wristbands +1",ring1="Petrov Ring",ring2="Epona's Ring",
        back=gear.tp_jse_back,waist="Sarissaphoroi Belt",legs="Meghanada Chausses +2",feet="Herculean Boots"}
     
    sets.engaged.DW.Accuracy = {
        head="Malignance Chapeau",neck="Sanctity Necklace",ear1="Mache Earring +1",ear2="Telos Earring",
        body="Adhemar Jacket +1",hands="Malignance Gloves",ring1="Ilabrat Ring",ring2="Regal Ring",
        back=gear.tp_jse_back,waist="Reiki Yotai",legs="Malignance Tights",feet="Malignance Boots"}
