    People using Peacock Amulets/Charms more?

    I'm just curious to know if more and more people are using either of these items more often now that charms are BCNM onry and Argus is less of a monopoly (maybe?) since his prized drop has become Rare/Ex. Everybody I had talked to when leveling to 75 said that this was like THE neckpiece of choice for any melee. Is this ACC and R.ACC+10 item being seen on more players as of late or are people still not bothering to camp the fella?

    Actually the same could be said for leaping/bouncing boots and the emperor/empress hairpins. Are people using these items more now that people seem to have more access to these items now? Or is the Rare/Ex label on these items a turn off?

    I actually haven't seen a single person with Peacock Amulet yet, the Charm is a lot more common now though.

    That's a pretty good point about the sushi. Totally forgot about that. But not everybody has access to Boroka's Auditory Torque, and its STR+4 (so Mysterytour tells us) is a latent effect. It's that dependable?

    So, from what I understand from Russta, the current trend for melees is to stock up on STR gear and eat accuracy food, yea?

    If I wasn't so lazy, I would go camp those three for the rare/ex version and sell the rare versions I have. Also, peaccock can come off of Hakutaku.

    It is 4 str and 4 vit, and the latent is having a song on.

    It's not a trend, it's for stupid PT's who insist on fighting things WAY above your lvl. Gogo Torama's at 58!

    I eat Sushi for my Accuracy, have a Bard 2x Minuet for my Attack and go all out STR and DEX on my equipment when leveling Warrior or Monk. I couldn't care less about the naysayers who laugh at people using Sushi at 75 'cause it's usually me and my parser that has the last laugh.

    Well, it depends on what gear you are using in the build...but +16% accuracy is pretty sick compared to any gear build.

    On NIN I use Acc+20 from my SH and Op Hat, otherwise I go all out DEX (cept neck because I love my evasion torque). I thought about getting a Peacock Charm, but I hit very well on anything with sushi because my DEX is so high, so it'd be a waste of Evasion Skill+7 imo. And for melee, it's only good on a job that needs TP moreso than to hit hard, like THF. Otherwise STR is the way to go.

    You just talking out of your ass or do you have a SS that's is not in japanese?

    Or maybe I somehow missed the SS?
