I'm not sure what to make of these abstract percentages they throw around in these adjustment posts. Is that a straight modifier to the selected mechanism's calculation, making a 4/5 or 5/5 Troub'd song 100-125% magically accurate? Maybe just taking the MAcc to the 95% Magic Hit Rate cap?

At least thinking about 1/5 Nite, 4/5 Troub, 5/5 Sirvente as 3rd song for PLD against bosses with weird/difficult hate.

RE troubador
1 merit to unlock

next 4 merits each giving 25% accuracy or 100% accuracy for all 4, at least thats they way I read it

I read it the same way as Tep. 25% increase per additional merit.

What I'm really curious on is how this will impact straight up resisted songs. Like trying to proc Lightning Threnody on an earth based mob. Will 5/5 merits work like elemental seal and force it to not be resisted. Definitely interested in seeing how this works.
