"Acc varies with tp" does NOT mean "acc sucks without high TP"
It is in fact most likely the other way. Most of these WS have been shown to have some BONUS at 100% TP. the exact amount has not been pinned down.
My Thf DE set has will land me at 82.5% on lv 81 colis and 78% on lv 82s. Roughly 80% hit rate when i solo DE. Even with 95% 1st hit accounted for, AND the fact that im /nin making it 6 hits. I should only get a 6/6 62% of the time. I can tell you right now, after meriting there for YEARS, i hit 6/6 far more often than 6/10.
During the original 2handed update (1=1) they lowered penta acc by LOTS. They since fixed it back to normal with the adjustment along with 1=.75. As a user of Dancing edge and Penta for YEARS, i can assure you, they are not inaccurate at 100TP. If a lol1hander A- skill thf with no native acc boosts of ANY kind can land 5/5 DE easily enough, a B skill 2hander with better gear options can do the same.
Also, if you demand 5/5 eery time your crazy anyway. at CAPPED acc, you will only hit 5/5 77% of the time (excluding DAs that will skew this a bit) because you will ALWAYS have a 5% chance to miss any hit. 3 outta 4 pentas will not be 5/5 under the best of conditions. 70% shot at 5/5 hits with 90% hit rate (assuming 1st hit is 95% due to acc bonus on 1st hits). Eyeballing your TP return and popping a sushi because you hit 2 4/5s in a row is overreacting.
Which brings me back to "why stack dex for the purpose of Acc on penta." The only stacking i can see is haub/Raja/Kitty pants for a nice 25 dex with askar head and warwolf depedning on acc (ohat+life). Thats not stacking, thats using the best gear in the slots. What exactly is this dex that you are stacking? If acc is really hurting THAT bad, doing something like thunder ring over an acc ring is dumb. What other gear are you "stacking" dex on?
