DNC = more ACC than THF? (using daggers)Follow

I think I'm doing this right...

Thief - 276 capped skill, 292 with merits, no natural ACC bonus

200 + 92*.9 = 282.8 which gets floored to 282

Dancer - 256 capped skill, 272 with merits, +22 natural ACC bonus (not even considering closed position)

200 + 72*.9 = 264.8 which gets floored to 264 + 22 = 286

Btw I'm a 75 Thief, and my DNC is 37 so this is really all just out of curiousity. I'm considering leveling Dancer because it's sort of like THF but different but the main thing that turned me off was the amount of skill I'd be losing, now it really doesn't seem like an issue.

As far as I can see, the only real benefit THF has in ACC department would be the ability to equip Homam for both Haste and Acc simultaneously, correct?

THF gets 269 skill in dagger, 285 with merits, so a total of 276 Acc, a full 10 behind DNC(but THF gets more ATK). Personally I think the biggest difference between the two is gear. Blau, Homam, Skadi and Heca are all powerful gear sets DNC does not have access to(although some may just be "yet"). There's other random pieces of gear that probably falls in there too(Fire Bomblet for instance).

Yeah, DNC base accuracy is better, but THF can still pull ahead with gear.

Which might be gradually remedied as time goes on; SE is rather slack about placing newer jobs on (older) endgame gear sets.

Oh wow, you're right, I completely forgot THF is actually an A-

With the addition of Closed Position merit(if you full merited it), the accuracy and atk of good DNC will be almost the same (even win by a bit) compared to good THF.

Something like this:

or swap the sub with Behemoth+1 to make it closer to THF's Atk.

Then the difference will only be BF vs SATA, Feint Triple Attack Steal Mug vs Curing ability, etc etc.

Well, and I'm certainly not saying DNC will ever match up to a THF's damage potential, but it's still nice to know that you actually need less ACC from gear to hit at the same rate.
