    Plan here is to outline an interesting way to give Corsair mains the additional avoid they desire for mid to late game bosses like Zakum and HT without pushing the class into a ridiculous power status.

    The skill of a Corsair is usually determined by their ability to dismount boat in order to avoid taking boat durability damage. The core weakness of the class is that it has the worst avoid stat compared to any other ranged class. To this extent, top corsairs recommend changing lower damage equips (shoes, overalls, etc) to +luk or +avoid equips to remedy this weakness, investing ap in luk, or utilizing avoid pots like Heartstoppers or Amorian Baskets.

    The proposed change is to edit the avoid formula for corsair to be similar to other ranged classes. This would be a straight buff. Therefore, in exchange, Battleship could then come with a negative avoid modifier; whether that brings corsair back to their current avoid or make it worse is a status I leave up to discussion. The change maintains the identity of corsair and provides the tweak corsair mains desire for their class in an elegant way that doesn't step too far into the realm of custom server status.

    P.S. this would likely have an unintended benefit of making 30-120 much more pleasant for gunslingers and outlaws

    Tl;dr. Corsair base avoid up, Corsair in battleship avoid down.

    I think the best solution would just to give battle ship +avoid. This rewards those pirates who know when to dismount for 1/1 attacks or other reasons and punishes those who stay in the ship, and has the ship break.
