i use this earring with my samurai, is pretty great, yes you may use sushi to loose the loss compared to a trumph earring 6lvls later but no dought this earing is 1337 for those who have to use Dex+str for their WS's and dont got alot of gil to toss around, this helps with Crit dmg too, i sub /rng and the dex gives me a lil kick i like, people can say the earring is crap if tehy wish but for me its pretty darn good for all dmg classes in hte melee department, because Dex effects Ranged Acc more then normal Melee attackers,

so +2 dex is 4.7% acc melee boost and ranged attackers score teh whole 5.0% though the earring gives only +1 dex so i am getting 2.5% of that Ranged attack bonus to my stats

in notes towards STR effects Attack dmg cap limit, as it is shown if you do lets say +2 str to stats
thats +1 attack point, and improves your dmg limit by some,

a earring like this works great with a Samurai, Gekko if you **** +25 STR you will see good results unlike what str i have now which is +42 so far and +47 Str with sushi, if i may i would suggest to use harvest earring(for the MND) if your samurai when you get Kasha, because what i seen with my suzzy boots my dmg increased dematicly, from +39 str i got when i dont use my Rutter Sabatons to using my suzarku boots i see a great increase of dmg, breaking the 1k mark with Kasha,

the +3 acc from minuet is like +6 dex if you think about it, but only effects melee, and isnt visiable to the eye, so totally you get +7 Dex and +1 str ,

this is my research and i am sticking to it, if you are a samurai try to get a pair of Suzarku boots and see what i mean

ACC+3 is not exactly DEX+6.

2 DEX = 1 ACC, but DEX also effects Critical Hit rate. ACC does not effect critical hit rate, just hit rate in general.

you were saying you needed a good melee earring? well this is the one! :P the one dex adds half an acc, and STR to hit harder. Assualt earring is great as you said,, this is a close second if not equal (in my opinion)

2 Dex =/= 1 Acc. I can't believe people still think this.

Actually, for the record, it's been parsed out extensively and shown that 2 DEX = ~0.9 ACC

So saying that 2 DEX = 1 ACC is fine.

Insert foot in mouth.

(Minuet Earring is still sort of crappy, especially if you use Sushi... then it is really crappy)

I believe it has officially been announced that 2DEX = a little less than 1 accuracy. However I have no link to give.

I'm searching the boards for a good earring for DRG, melee. I know the good earrings if I were to sub a mage, but I need a good melee earring.
I was thinking this, merman/coral earring, or Attila's earring, because I plan on subbing SAM. I have already made the decision for Assault on the other ear, any feedback?

This earring is excellent...the only other earrings that give +STR are bushinomimi(rare/ex), Triumph earring,and Cassie Earring. (both of which range from 2.5-3million gil on my server). Add to that +1 dex, the only other earring to give dex is pixie earring(rare/ex via KB). On top of that, there's a possibility for +3 acc, great since not every melee job (i.e. thieves) can use the Assault earring.
Basically, this earring is great for any melee but superb if you're a thief.

Stats were said but here they are again:
Minuet Earring
Str+1 Dex+1
Minuet: Accuracy+3

Meaning u get +3 accuracy if u have minuet on. My question is, If u have 2 minuet songs on u at one time, is it 2x +3 acc?

I got the earring first time it ever came out.

He meant that if he had played Minuet III and Minuet IV for example.

I haven't seen this around. I have a Melody Earring +1, and I was thinking of getting another +1 earring. But then this looks a lot better. How much is it selling for on AH? Or is it quested?

Stats are a bit off.. It is actually

lvl 61 all jobs/races
STR +1, DEX +1, Minuet: Accuracy +3

The Accuracy +3 kicks in only when buffed from a Minuet song. Very good earring for melees who static with a BRD.

Where's the level requirement? And what does Minuet: 3 mean(keep in mind I'm a 56 bard)? Does that mean Minuet +3? I've seen the earring that gives + enmity when you have minne on, or something like that, maybe this is one of those (though that is, obviously, not an item for bards). Until I see all the stats, like the level req and more specific description, or better yet a picture, I won't know what to think. Maybe this is at the AH on my server already, I'll check, and if so, report back.

Other sites list this as "Minuet: Accuracy +3" Which would make this godly for anyone who statics with a Bard.

The most standard bard songs on Melees are Madrigal (Accuracy) and Minuet (Attack). Getting EXTRA Accuracy from a song you will have on anyway? Brilliant.


There's also the earring that gives "Minne: Emnity +4" (Titanis Earring or something... not listed on Allakhazam anymore... could've sworn I saw it here before.)

EDIT: According to that same site, this is indeed rare.

EDIT EDIT: OK full stats according to (is it alright to post a link to an external site here?) .... another site is :

Minuet Earring
Rare
lvl 61 all jobs/races
STR +1, DEX +1, Minuet: Accuracy +3

Obtained from "BCNM (Uncapped) Double Dragonian" Uses a Clotho Orb which is a 30 Kindred Seal orb.

This would be a great earring I think since as far as I know, there aren't any earrings which give accuracy in the first place. And any melees will have BOTH Madrigal and Minuet. Of course, not being a meleer myself (I'm a bard at heart) I don't know which earrings a lvl 61 War/Sam/Nin/Drg/Drk would wear.

Actually, the Assault Earring has +2 accuracy, as well as the Accurate Earring.

However, I'd still say this earring kicks the crap out of those two, especially the latter.

Posted seconds before me lol, and thank you for clarifying. Though I'm not sure how useful this is. Depending on what other earrings are available, accuracy +3 isn't so great, especially since a person who needs accuracy will have madrigal on anyway. If the earring DOES have +1 str and dex, that makes it more viable, but I don't keep track of the good earrings for melee by level, so I guess it could be pretty good. If there's an earring that gives much better stats than this one without the effect, I would probably go for the other earring, accuracy +3 probably won't make up enough to warrant a song other than madrigal, especially if other melee don't have this earring, so other earrings could be a lot better.
