    DEX is worthless for MAR, when I was @30 MAR in P3 I reassigned my acc from 50>15 and I missed/wiffed on all mobs just the same. In @18 MAR I've tried 45 dex & 15 dex and they seem to be the same. VIT & STR seem to be far better investments. This is eyeballing of course, but even still, I've played MAR P2>P3>OB and I have enough experience with it somewhat of an accurate statement on it.

    Get bronze laybse or iron laybse, your acc issues should go away. They have like at least +20 acc on them to help with the missing.

    Yeah many have been saying that DEX doesn't do much atm. at least not for your acc. But you'd think it'll change for retail cause, you know, the only description for DEX currently is "increases physical accuracy".. but it probably isn't working as intended right now, or there's just something weird going on, because I doubt they can just leave it as an useless stat. It not giving acc for marauder is weird for another reason as well, because few of my friends have been playing different jobs, like archer, and they've said that without rather high DEX amount you're screwed because you can't hit for shit, so I don't know. There are just so many things in the game currently that make me wonder.

    Does anyone know if the things you buy with guild marks for Marauder would transfer over to other jobs? For example

    Intimidation
    Increases the enmity generated by your actions by 10
    If I bought that with Marauder guild marks but switch to Gladiator would I still generate 10 additional enmity on all actions? Or is it Marauder specific actions?

    I have a wild guess that you could put them on the traits bar on the abilities and traits menu, perhaps for any job you're playing.

    It may be that Dex now relates more to critical hit rate. I tested MAR from Alpha through OB and in P1-3 Dex had something to do with ACC, at least from casual observation. I didn't notice the same effect in OB, but I did notice that I was getting more critical hits than I had been getting in previous test phases. It would be worth checking out more formally.

    If it's anything like XI, DEX will more than likely effect crit hits more than just landing hits. Has anyone done testing to see if there's a floor/ceiling on acc? Maybe you just need sushi.. (lolz, I'll miss you FFXI)

    Do Marauders get an offhand equip? (I don't think so but not sure). And I'm not very high, only rank 10, but I've been splitting stats between mostly str and then vit and dex. I was doing some level 1 leves with a group and I noticed a lot more crits than when I did them leveling up. Can't say much for accuracy though, I usually do the AoE attacks on mobs and hit something unless its red.

    Don't think so, I still whiff like a lil bitch with my Bronze Labrys and nearly equal STR & DEX (VIT a bit behind), also have acc rings.

    Makes me crazy sometimes.

    The axes themselves seem to make the biggest difference. Getting the 26 iron axe gave a large boost to acc. I took dex to 40 when i had the weathered axe and it made no difference beside seemed to crit more. I'd recommend just doing vit + str.

    From my limited MAR experience (rank 10), Marauder looks like a powerhouse versus multiple mob groups with a lot of Area of Effect abilities, and they have Defender.

    Not sure if Bloodbath stacks with AoE Abils, but if it does it will be damn hot. Focusing on my Gladiator first, possibly taking up Marauder later on.

    I've tried to, and it's not effective unless you have voke and taunt. GLD and PUG hold hate much better w/ their own abilities. If you can stay in stedfast + defender using taunt/voke you would be able to tank better then either tho.

    Can anyone confirm missing a hit after using bloodbath? My marauder is only level 8ish now so I havent been using it extensively but I've noticed every bloodbath modified trunksplitter hits every time (so far).
