WS Accuracy +16% any good?Follow

Hey Guys.

A simple question.

How much would it benefit to get a 16% boost to WS Accuracy for stuff like Penta Thrust @ Merit Bird Party's?

Nothing important?
Or alot?
Or would it just be a decent thing to have?

Regards
M

That would be very good, yes. What specifically are you referring to?

would be very good, though of course melee ACC matters as well. if you need to spam crab sushi to keep good melee ACC, the WS ACC could possibly be wasted on penta thrust, though you might be able to make gear swaps to balance out if you were capping ACC. would need to know what piece you're getting WS ACC+16% from, how many polearm merits you have, and what other ACC gear you wear.

I'll get back to you asap guys.

- I'm still investigating. So plz just wait a bit ^^

In the meantime someone give me a free premium subsc. so I can post the screenshot otherwise I'll have to post a link to my private ffxi website instead... but I guess thats what I'm gonna do if needed so you guys can see for yourself ^^

- I've never keept information secret before and I'm not about to start to either.

On a Final note for now, although I mentioned +16% I think it might actually be possible to get 20% although its going to require a lot more work or luck.

Would be a better analogy if freedom of speech and to express ourselves had ever applied here in the first place.

Alla is a private message board, and beyond that, a business. Not only do notions like freedom of speech not apply in the least, but Alla would be stupid not to restrict behaviour that potentially hurts its profit margins.

I have no idea what was in the posts that disappeared, but in general it really doesn't seem very implausible to me that the sometimes dismissive and rude posting style of some folks is turning away potential customers.

I don't like it, but it's something I'll happily put up with for access to a service that is basically subsidised by a customer base.

i thought it was a very appropriate response to

"there's a new WS ACC+16% option,"
"what is it?"
"an entire equip setup with minimal STR and ATT that has some ACC on it,"
("( - _ -)p")

maybe such an exchange could magically drive away all new allakhazam posters, but THEN THE TERRORISTS WIN!!!

Well, phil's post was nuked cause he was calling the OP an idiot (accused him of not knowing anything), and Mil, your post was nuked just because to me it came off as a random series of punctuation marks. Might be the window size I was using at the time, but there was no image there at all for me, just a series of random marks.

Now that I can see it, I agree.

My bigger point was that "Freedom of Speech, Bwaaah!" on an online forum just really doesn't fly. Whether I agree with the admins' decisions or not, accepting them is part of what comes from using someone else's service.

Disliking the current direction in site moderation and calmly criticising it (as lots of people, including some in this thread, have done) is great, and helpful. Even mentioning freedom of speech, though, misses the point entirely, because it has nothing to do with things.

I have to laugh, because you have taken a joke post in a derailed thread and posted very serious, emo like responses to it.

as i said to vlor, i don't care whether moderation is for business reasons or moral reasons or whatever reasons, i'm going to post however i want. if someone wants to ban me or mute me for it, it's their forum not mine. if they want to chastise me, they're wasting their time. if they think derails or occasional churlishness drive away more posters than childish handholdery and overactive, biased moderation, they're the ones getting paid to make that decision, not me.

i post honestly, and generally try to help people. i won't go to any length whatsoever to justify what i do however. if you already have confidence in what you do and are ethical and responsible enough not to do stuff you don't believe in, you needn't spend much of your life apologizing. so, i post ascii art.

Oh, as I noted, I had no problem with your art. When I made my original post I couldn't even see it, and my comment was more general, though. My comment was directed at Sandmasterr's "lolalla."

Eh, maybe you did intend that as purely a joke post. To me, it came off (and still does, especially in light of your response to it) as more of a "look at me, trying hard not to care and being all sarcastic, but really I'm butthurt" post.

/shrug. I could be reading you completely wrong, but if so you need to work on making your innocent sarcasm sound less wounded.
