SAnTA nerfed as sub

I would like to see a /thf use this and the seiryus kote...

Wouldn't make much difference, SAnTA is nerfed when you sub THF. a WAR/THF doesn't get the DEX and AGI damage bonus, SA is just a crit and TA onky transfers hate.

The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.

*Sniffle* It's so beautiful! The kind of crap that high level MNKS get is terrifying. If I was a monster, I'd **** my pants if I had to fight a lvl 75 MNK, regardless of what monster i was. These pants have inspired me to keep trucking on with monk.

If given the proper ACC equipment peripheral to the Shura Haidate, then why would you not simply macro the Shura in @ WS, and take full advantage of the unspeakable sexiness of DEX +1? +2? +7? No, +15, and the haste+5% (that people are paying the Gil Selling HNM JP LSs as much as 25 mil for**) as you melee your way to 100+ TP?

Not to mention, ACC +7 will not raise your critical hit rate.

And DEX+15 = 7.5 melee ACC.

**I understand the belt gives +6%, but (everyone) knows non-JPs would still be suckers and pay whatever the JPs ask for it, even if it were Haste +1, 2, 23, 70, or +5%.

Myself and another 75 MNK in my LS have been discussing Byakko's Haidate vs. Shura Haidate. Being Elvaan, I thought that I could benefit more from Byakko's while he on the other hand, being Hume, can benefit more from Shura. I'd sure love to crit more at my level and that 5% haste would make me have Haste+13% total (with Brown Belt). As for him, he'd match my higer base STR by wearing Shura Haidate. We both agreed to not lot against each other on these items when our LS fights Byakko ^^. After we get these for ourselves, we're gonna PT up in KRT to demolish some skellies.

Another Reason Why War's are a great end game job: They get to wear alot of cool armor in the end. It's scary how much eq gods drop that wars can use 0_0

well i've read a ton of posts as well as interviews from SE and wat i've determined is that adding 2 to dex will give approx. 1 acc.....however this does not go the other way around....adding 1 acc will not give u 2 dex..
dex is responsible for more than just acc so adding to acc alone would not improve dex.....thats pretty much wat i got from it

I think the stats are halfsies. By that I mean that all stats have seem to have two major properties that split it into halves. I'm not counting little hidden stats, like CHRs ability to effect certain WSs (which it does) or anything like that.

DEX would be .5 Acc and .5 Critical Rate. Your definitely right about Acc not turning into DEX, thanks for clearing up something that might have confused many people ^^

Remember, I said "I think." :P

Acc, DEX, all that stuff.
# Oct 27 2004 at 6:42 AM Rating: Decent
So, would the same thing go with let's say, STR and Attack? VIT and Defense? AGI and Evasion? Am I close or is it only Accuracy and DEX that works this way?
RE: Acc, DEX, all that stuff.
# Oct 28 2004 at 8:30 PM Rating: Decent
2DEX = ACC, yes (according to SE interview, anyway). DEX also affects critical hit rate & SA damage. Could be a few more things -- But I can't recall.

1 accuracy does not equal 2 dex

Accuracy is a stat on its own, all it does is make you more accurate. However, 2 dex equals 1 accuracy. Dex serves two purposes, increases critical hit rate (melee) as well as adding up to melee accuracy (Every 2 dex equals 1 accuracy). However if you bought a piece of gear that had 10 accuracy, this wouldn't increase your critical hit factor as it's only accuracy, it isn't Dex.

1 accuracy does not equal 2 dex.. but then you say 2 dex = one accuracy?

Actually, although it sounds sort of twisted, that's correct. Dexterity is a stat with more than one "effect" on your performance. One effect is that it increases your accuracy, at an approximate rate of one acc for every two dex. (2dex=1acc). Another is that it increases the frequency with which you critical when fighting a mob (at a rate unknown to anybody but the developers).

A direct increase in accuracy effects accuracy only. A direct increase in dexterity would increase your accuracy (by the 2:1 ratio) and also your critical hit rate.

When people say 1acc = 2 dex, they're not being entirely accurate - it's true that 1acc = (the accuracy derived from 2dex). But increasing acc directly does not increase your hit rate.

It's just something else to think about when trading off dex and acc - increasing dex by a certain amount has half the accuracy-increase as a direct accuracy addition would... but also increases the crit rate ^^

Okay, this is getting out of hand. What these people are saying is that if you equip something with 2 DEX, you will also recieve 1 acc. However, if you equip something with 1 acc, you will not recieve 2 dex.

Even as a level 32 thief, I can only imagine what +15 dex would do for me...and the same stats of speed belt.

Cop update might rectify this *crosses fingers*

Best for NIN

THE best leg armor for NIN in the game. Haste +5% = faster recasting of Utsusemi = less damage taken = much better tanking.

Just my two cents ^^

ya know... 15 DEX is only 7.5 accuracy.. and most Melee around that level are drowning in accuracy (+40~). therefore, the haste is way better.

2 DEX is NOT the same as 1 acc.

# Oct 22 2004 at 3:38 AM Rating: Decent

Hate to tell you, but yes 1 Accuracy = 2 DEX. Also 1 Attack = 2 STR, 1 defense = 2 VIT. That's the way it goes since Accuracy is only PART of DEXs purpose, same goes for the rest.

DEX is also for Critical Hits rate, so more DEX = more criticals while more accuracy is just for hitting more.

Don't believe me? Go to this link educate yourself just as I did when I first discovered this a few months ago.


There you go, enjoy and don't forget to teach others the way things really are ^^

And for Pete's sake DON'T ASSUME ANYTHING! (Talking to the poster below who probably got some people to spread bad information)

im sorry to tell u but ur the one spreading bad iformation. 1 acc DOES NOT =2 dex because acc does nothing to raise ur critical hit precentage. 2 Dex however does = 1 acc but Dex also raises ur critical affect rate. So in saying 1 Acc= 2 Dex is false info. saying 2 Dex= 1 acc plus a up (i dont not exactly know how much) to ur critical hit precentage would be correct. That is all.

Incase you haven't noticed a whole bunch of NPCs (ie everyone in the blacksmith guild bastok) wear these pants or at least something very similar now if only you could wear those white sleeveless hood tops.

Does everyone who kills byakko get to pick a piece of byakko armor, or does he drop a random piece to be lotted on by all? Also, I thought that this was an uncursed piece of armor, and an abjuration needed to be applied to get this...
