Puppet Parrying, blocking and dodgingFollow

I've been wondering what affects the puppet's parry/shield block/evasion. (Other than the attachments for the last two.) There are no puppet skill ups for those things, so surely that's not it. (Unless SE decided to hide those stats, like Acc/Magic acc/ Chocobo digging skill) So does it go up with the puppet melee skill? Is it just a level correction kind of thing? Or is it just a straight percentage, no matter what?

And how would you even test this?
Maybe if we wait long enough, he'll tell us about how he walked barefoot uphill through snow both ways in Uleregand and defeated the evil Snoll Tzar with nothing but a stack of pebbles. Men were men back then. Mithra were men, too, but they don't talk about that.

Mellowy is awesome, now.
I'm sorry. My hoovercraft is full of Summoners. As soon as I claim a thread, they just flood out and cover the whole place. Slippery suckers, those Summoners.

For players, all three are related to both their respective skills, and AGI (and shield size, but that's not important here) for their proc rate. I would assume puppets have a stat equation similar to the one normally used for defense ([VIT/2] + 8 + Level + 10) that does their base evasion, but also probably gives them a little boost to account for how abysmally low it would be using a straight transfer of the defense equation. Something like [AGI/2] + 8 + 3*(level +10) which would put Sharpshot's evasion at 99 around 380ish, a little lower than our own evasion skill, before traits and AGI is calculated. Parrying proc rate probably just uses the normal parrying formula, replacing parrying skill with automaton melee skill, in the same way automaton magic skill functions as all magic skills. Shield blocks, I would assume that the barrier module probably has a fixed base % block rate and anything beyond that is from AGI.

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!
