    Just shy of 8m DPM 45.

    Echo, SI, SE, Cider (20 attack pot), and amorian basket (+40 avoid).

    I swapped out my old overall for a new one:
    upload_2020-8-4_20-26-55.png

    This results in +14 avoid, and combined with the amorian basket, + 34 avoid total over what I normally had, which was about 7% more to dodge.

    My avoid sits at 365 with this setup which gives me a flat 35% dodge rate.

    Freefire ratio: 60.45%

    So based on my progression it seems that 3% dodge rate correlates to ~1% increase in freefire DPS.

    Anyways, this still puts me behind a similary geared well controlled NL, but I guess I would need to start running with some godly NLs to see who whites.

    8.773m DPM
    Freefire ratio: 60.98%

    It has been a long time since I last updated this journal, and I've had some significant gear upgrades.

    12 attack cape -> 22 attack cape
    17 attack gloves -> 21 attack gloves
    ->~+10 extra stat from new event rings

    Shown above is dpm with si / se / echo and BLIND
    with Cider (+20 attack) and amorian basket +40 avoid

    This marks the end of akash's story - and perhaps the beginning of Disparity.

    From what ive seen top tier NLs can do about 5 to 10% more dpm than corsair with si + se in HT main body.

    Anyways on to SEASON 2 of the horntail journal with our new star, DISPARITY
    cornians dpm.JPG

    6.692m dpm 60**

    Upgrades since last time:
    -maple warrior 30 passed on Disparity

    Buffs: SE + Echo + occasional smoke
    Attack pot: 15 attack coke pill
    Freefire ratio: 54.66%

    Essentially when it comes to HT dpm i'm taking a big step backwards in terms of progression. A level 182 corsair (effectively level 178 cause INT) is definetely lacking the ship hp which makes my level 200 corsair so great.

    Either way, this disadvantage is only going to be temporary, as it will slowly go away as i level up.

    One cool new innovation lately is that corsairs can jump from one side of horntail to the other from the very top, meaning if the two heads you are attacking get cancelled, you can quickly get over to the other side to attack the third head.

    I don't count the extra stats from mw30 buff, i was just counting base stats. Its jump-able even if you can't tank, but if you make a mistake its possible to straight up die. Going from left to right i think is relatively safe even if you can't tank touch, but going from right to left is kinda risky.

    Hey akash, was following your corsair guide for well over a year now, I’ve noticed your hp washing guide is capped on 16.5k hp. Was wondering how much NX in total is needed to wash till 30k hp?

    6.994m dpm.JPG

    Gear upgrades
    22/23 horntail pendant -> 23/30 timeless pendant
    10 dex earrings -> 12 dex earrings
    22 avoid shoes -> 30 avoid shoes

    Buffs: Coke pill, echo, se, occasional smoke

    6.994m dpm 45
    dpm ratio: ~54%

    Still somewhat struggling with the new corsair, as there is a pretty large gap in dpm (~1m) between disparity and akash. I think a big part of it is the increased ping from VPN (which i am forced to use or otherwise experience unholy lag), but it could also be the higher hp leading to less boat longevity when hit by 1/1 in addition to low level leading to lower boat HP.

    So i guess the next steps are simply to grind some levels and finish the hp wash so i can zerk properly off gingseng roots.

    In total to get to 30k should be something around 4.5-5m nx, higher if you also want a big mp pool.

    HT dpm coke pill 8.95.JPG

    Got some significant gear upgrades since last run.
    1) 7 dex face -> 6 attack event face
    2) 117 attack 7 dex gun -> 120 attack 12 dex 2 str gun
    upload_2021-11-13_13-55-27.png
    3) swapped to a dex overall for this run (so +23 dex at the cost of some avoid)
    upload_2021-11-13_13-55-52.png

    8.952m dpm 45

    61.2% freefire dpm.

    Still got a ways to go until I reach 65% freefire, which is what I believe I need to be competitive against nightlords.

    The main reason the dpm from this run was significantly higher is largely due to the speed. The entire main body took only a little over 45mins, so the end parts of the run (where corsairs can essentially freefire) are taken into account which boost the overall dpm.

    One thing I want to check is what kind of freefire ratio a nightlord is capable of getting with the above setup. It should be higher than a standard run, but corsairs / archers do stand to gain much more from the faster runs, due to spending less time at the stressful parts which heavily favor NLs.

    Any clue on what the balance would be between only switching the overall? Curious what the tradeoff between +23 dex or +x avoid looks like without the influence of improved gun/face.

    I'm not exactly sure, but I have a feeling that once you hit ~300 avoid its going to just be better to have higher attack / dex. For preheads, i am pretty sure its better to not use avoid gear since with the most recent HT changes, the heads don't really spam attacks as often.

    It's been a long time since I last updated this thread, and I've had extreme gear upgrades.
    120 attack 2 slot gun -> 130 attack gun
    upload_2022-1-24_20-27-2.png

    10.167m DPM while using avoid gear - which corresponds to a freefire ratio of 66.6%.

    Buffs:
    Cider
    Echo
    Si
    SE

    With this ratio I would say that I've probably defeated the nightlords (at least at horntail) given that the party is optimized for single target (with a buccaneer) and no cleavers leading to a fast runtime that spends a long time freefiring wings / arm.

    This is with my avoid gear / attack gear

    HT dpm cider.JPG

    10.478m dpm
    SI/SE/Smoke with cider

    64.75% freefire dpm , no avoid gear.

    Since last run I have had 1 upgrade
    2 attack red sock -> 3 attack facestomper
    upload_2022-4-10_19-52-44.png

    Most of the gains this time around are from levels. I do plan on upgrading my overall (23 dex isn't that great), and my face accessory, as its only 7 dex. Earrings could also be slighly better at 12 dex.

    23 dex sauna robe -> 11 str 28 dex timeless burgunt
    upload_2022-5-16_19-48-6.png

    I will probably 30% or ws 30% it some day once i have a backup, but for now I'm going to leave it as is.

    I am not sure what % freefire i got, since the attack buffs were a combination of cokepill + HT buff.
