Has anyone ever tested to make sure this doesn't also raise Ranged Accuracy? If not I'm going to test that out. Because it doesn't make sense to me that Rangers have Accuracy Up job traits that raise both melee and ranged accuracy, yet our "accuracy up" job ability doesn't do the same thing.
how much acc+?

Like Asoka said, its only for regular (melee) accuracy ...

But, does it stack with Warrior's Aggressor?

In response to MTPCilo,

I think Focus is only for melee accuracy and not ranged. The 2 are separate. Take for instance the Peacock Charm:


There's a category for accuracy and one for ranged accuracy.

Berserk also raises Attack and Ranged Attack without specifically saying it boosts ranged attack.

Ask a RNG/WAR about this.

Increase Accuracy...?

Anyone knows whether the Monk job ability "Focus" or "Concentrate" adds to BOTH melee & Ranged attack, or is it just for melee? I'm thinking about subbing Mnk and was hoping this ability would give both.

The answer is 'NO'

Monks only have a select few ranged items they can use, and it would be pointless. That fact aside, per Squeenix, it's for meele accuracy only ... this was listed in one of the first interviews with one of the creaters of this game. When I find that site again, I will post it so you can read it ... ^^
