Anyway, I'm kind of confused and hoping that someone may clear this up for me.
You're fine. I'm pure HV and card skills are great. I can hit 100k damage crits on non-resistant mobs (torrobies)
(Mostly to show that my OP does fine damage on things my level)
It's a really common misconception that only "Pure APs" can do well with cards. It's a marginal AP increase from pure AP and honestly gamblers should only be HP or HV these days. HV increases FH damage without increasing the recoil and you're always better off stacking something that increases dodge as it's multi-functional. To get the most out of your raccoon you either want to be very FH-spammable (High HV) or FH+PC-spammable (HV and HP).
I've seen a lot of AP coons kill themselves in Fiesta because they just pumped AP and their base is now too high and they don't have the HV to survive themselves. I have no AP gear compounded, it's just the bases and my weapon.
