    Salmon Sushi for rangers?

    Was looking through the sushis and saw this

    http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Salmon_Sushi

    is this like the best ranged food? Or does it seem to cap off?

    # Strength +1
    # Accuracy +14%
    # Ranged Accuracy +14%
    # Ranged Attack +10%

    Or is the ranged attack on it a lie?

    Considering it's nearly impossible to determine that I'd probably be very weary of it. D:

    Also the fact that RNG really does hardly ever miss in general use, I would rather just use Meat. Now for a Corsair that ONLY shoots it might be nice, but then that COR already fails so.

    COR is pretty awesome. DD and support job mix, almost like dancer, accept DNC isn't rly good for endgame :/

    Seems interesting although I'm very skeptical of the ranged attack boost. It would actually be pretty good considering that capping your accuracy on RNG requires that you eat ranged accuracy food, and that even with a hefty amount of ranged accuracy there are still many situations where you fall short of 'good.'

    for NM like ixion, sushi is a must if wanna do constant damage, unless you're getting prelude or hunter roll.

    If it worked as advertised I'd probably use it for COR/WAR.

    I seemed to recall the stuff had an Accuracy+ cap of ~15 or so... unless the guy who added that has a link to his tests I'd highly doubt it has Ratt+ and other misc. effects to boot.

    I really need to get around to testing all the weird new sushis that have come out for the Acc+ and any DA/TA+% on them.

    Racc/Ratt+% I'm not sure how to do and don't really have a job to test those with.

    I can make this sushi but I'm wondering how would I test it? I can get a rng friend but I wanna know what I'm looking at so I don't note the wrong stuff.

    I can say for sure this doesn't simply give +15 or something low accuracy boost.

    As for the +ratk from it, I don't really notice any significant boost, but that's prolly because I was in stable zone range. I'll try it again later on Gotoh this Thursday if I got chance to.

    Isn't 10% boost = velocity shot's ranged attack bonus?

    Can just use that as the baseline.

    VShot is 15% ratk boost, I believe.
    Though looking at the pDIF boost, it's more like 20% boost.

    If you look at the history entry on the other wiki, there's that one person adding the ratk +10% on Salmon sushi. And all he wrote was : "After extended use, determined that Ranged Attack does increase roughly 8-12% Still not completely unsure". Not to reject his finding, but we certainly can use further testing.
