    Can we get an overhaul of this item? For an Ou item, there doesn't seem to be much point. I can't think of any circumstances where you would use this item to increase multi-hit when your accuracy is that low on a monster.



    If you don't intend on changing it, can you explain what the Dev's team thinking was behind this item? In what circumstances should a player use this? And how does it help DPS?

    I think they are supposed to be used in a dt set, where you have to sacrifice accuracy, it counterbalances this by giving you the extra attacks

    You need to have less than 60% acc to get ONE additional swing. Who cares if you swing twice instead of once if you miss both.

    As far as I can see, that's the point of them, you're in full defence gear, 60% accuracy means one of your two hits may hit, just a way to counter the accuracy you've lost for being in full dt gear, replacing it with an additional chance to hit.

    Two of those jobs on it (DRK & PUP) inherently have lower accuracy to begin with (see old joke pre-ToAU below), cannot remember how good/bad natural accuracy is on other jobs. Might this be a reason for these gloves, to "help make up for" those accuracy loss issues to balance those jobs, even a tiny bit?
