    Well, it might matter specifically for Knights of the Round because WSs get +100 Acc to their first hit. 99% Accuracy with KotR vs. 100% Accuracy with Atonement is less of a sacrifice than 95% vs. 100%. Also, KotR is going to get a boost this update (probably fTP, maybe modifiers).

    If that was a serious question, it's because they don't. They hit the first hit of their WSs 95% of the time. 1H weapon users, however, will hit the first hit of their WSs 99% of the time after this patch. So they'll miss 20% as often.

    Jesting aside, the conversation we were having had digressed from the OP and was about additional effect proc rate and accuracy of PLD normal swings. He had very low accuracy and so my comment to him was that the update doesn't matter, because if you are having 50% accuracy (this is TP, not WS) before update, you will still have same after update.

    The update said nothing about WS accuracy, so I'm genuinely confused why you keep referencing WS's. Did I misinterpret the update:

    The maximum accuracy of one-handed weapons equipped as the main weapon will be increased from 95% to 99%.

    But in this thread you previously said, "not one iota. if you were 50% accuracy on your PLD before update, you will still be 50% accuracy after update.". The previous post I made (from SE) says otherwise. What am I missing? I just want to make sure we're on the same page here: that update suggests more acc for 1handers - that would include a sword pld..

    The accuracy CAP is increasing. Not your current accuracy.

    Let's say you had 850 acc pre-update, and that put you at 85% hit rate. Post update.... you're going to have 850 acc and 85% hit rate. Now, if you somehow added another 20 accuracy, then you'd have hit the 95% hitrate cap from pre-update. But after the update, you'd still have to add 8 more acc, to reach 99%.

    basically, this:

    Is perfectly and completely correct.

    Even if the cap rises, you still have to have enough accuracy to reach it for it to have any effect.

    I didn't mean to imply current accuracy - I simply understood the update to mean there was a native cap of the accuracy on the weapon itself (some hidden modifier or mechanic being adjusted for 1hand weapons, not the accuracy of the player). Thanks for the clarification.
