Corsair master race.
Boardside for 100% stance needed on bosses (RA clown boss) and for tight mobs.
8 leg for spread out mobs
Head shot for bosses that don't require mobility or stance and only if you don't cap out.
Rapid fire for bosses that require to move a lot or if you cap out with head shot. (Gollux, Magnus, etc)
Quick draw is helpful
Get longer summon duration

Quick draw is supposed to be used in combination with headshot. It's a pretty significant increase.

Here is my little analysis of Corsairs.

Copy + Pasted from the thread:
All used for different purposes. Here is my analysis of all the skills used by corsairs in high level training, low level training, dojo, chaos root abyss, etc.

What is BS? Broad Side? Brain scrambler...?
Last I recalled, it was called headshot.
Headshot would be your primary, unless you were a godly sair capping on it, then rapid fire should eventually overtake your DPS since it's much faster.
Rapid fire is used for situations that require movement such as in some situations of Chaos vellum, perhaps during chaos queen when you're dodging her fire attack and trying to move to her back side, etc.
Also great in Gollux's jaw

This is also a skill I recommend using in Hard magnus as you can dodge the meteors faster.
Broadside is excellent as shown here:
For a preemptive hit in dojo. The shots do not immediately target, so you can do preemptive hits in bosses that require summons such as von leon, Arkarium, dojo, chaos queen.

I find this attack to be very useful in Chaos vellum as well to land in extra hits before he comes up above ground.
Eight legged easton is useful for certian situations of mobbing that broadside cannot cover. This is mainly for mobs that spawn together, but in a long line.
In mobs that are grouped together, broadside does well to hit them all at once, but if they are in a line, broadside will only hit the first few and waste your time as you continue to hit a few at a time.

Easton is used to clear mobs that are spawned in situations such as von leon where they are spawned in a long line, dimensional invasion in some situations, or in the normal training grounds such as hoh, Dh2, and especially warrior grounds.

Finally, remember that broadside has casting delay so in almost all situations of mobbing, I'd recommend eight legged easton over broadside simply for reasons of better mobility (you can flash jump in and out of it faster).
I hope you found this useful. I don't actually play Corsairs, funny thing, but I'm a big fan of AussieStyle93's videos so I learned how to play Corsair just watching all those videos LOL. That being said, as a Phantom main, I have used and experimented with each and every attack so I have some experience with using these attacks in almost all the bosses in the game.

Corsairs are a beautiful character. Enjoy playing yours. I love characters that use a variety of attacks. It makes it so much more fun.
To conclude.... Keep on no scoping all the mobs.

It's Broadside not Broad Side. BS is brain scrambler.

You may be able to tell me how to use my skills but YOU CAN'T TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE
