When not forced to pull, I get a slugshot every fight at the least. Doing 1/3 of the monsters' hp every fight is good enough for me. And when the mages don't suck and actually haste me, I can often get off two slugshots, and I just solo a colibri every 5 minutes with slugshot-> barrage-> slugshot and quickdraws if barrage sucked.
you must duo or something. there is absolutely no way you get a slugshot, much less 2, on every bird you kill in a normal party. normal DDs dont get a WS on every mob and they gain tp faster.
And I'm sure healers LOVE a COR with no damage mitigation "soloing" birds. If there's a Pecking Flurry somewhere in that Slug->Barrage->Slug QD QD sequence, you're likely to be a dead or nearly dead COR/RNG. Again, I love COR/RNG. But I also know I need to time things well to not be eating a beak to the face when unnecessary.
I'm not sure I agree that other DDs gain tp faster than a COR. A hasted COR with a M.Kris is a beautiful thing. Other DDs should be doing more DAMAGE during TPing than a COR (since COR is skewed more heavily to WS), but as far as rate of TP gain a properly geared COR is up there with the best of them. But yes, it does sound like either exaggeration or exceptional circumstances - if you're getting 2 Slugs a fight in merits you either have horrific other DDs, or you're dual-wielding M.Kris's with another M.Kris strapped to your feet.
