Because it's WS gear, not TP gear.
That's not why.
It took him until his 202nd post to post something half decen
It'd be interesting to give credit to good advices every once in a while, regardless of who said it. The advice there is not half decent, it's really good.
OP: as far as I'm aware, giving serious thoughts about DEX during WSs is an exclusive interest of THFs during SA WSs. Generally speaking, for WSs with lower attribute modifier, you'd end up just stacking STR anyway. Edit: or in the case of multi-hit WSs, ACC > ATT/STR
But you came across a choice between 2 body pieces with the same STR bonus and ask about multi-hit WSs, 2 of which do have DEX modifier in it, and on which you'd often worry about your accuracy a lot. So while you'd be stacking STR anyway, the extra DEX will indeed give minimal boost to DMG and ACC when wearing Hauby over Enkidu's.
So basically, I think Enkidu's is a defensive TPing piece (as noted by CBO and Bsphil), or maybe WS pieces for jobs that cannot wear Hauby or something else with similar / better accuracy (not going through the trouble of finding which would those be) Edited, Dec 9th 2009 5:46am by sbrubles Edited, Dec 9th 2009 5:53am by sbrubles
