Question for Bards who use Elfin Bow

#1Noonan25Posted 2/20/2014 8:29:48 AM
To any bards running Coil who use the Elfin bow, how are you supplementing your accuracy to get to cap? I'd be OK if I were to get it now since I still have a few CT pieces equipped but I'd drop well below the cap for Coil t4-5 if I were to get the bow and myth lets/feet. It looks like accessories are the best way but the heroes ring/choker have no acc. Allagan ring does but it's a T5 drop. Should I just keep a gear set with a lower ilvl with Ultima accessories and some CT gear equipped to keep my acc high enough?

I was hoping to save the myth and just go Elfin for my bard. I started as a BLM main but my coil team needs me as Bard only. BLM has Zenith. I guess I'll have to see what it all looks like when the time comes. My ilvl shouldn't drop too much if I need to rely on some i80 pieces to get the acc high enough.

The Allagan pants give you the missing Acc...which drop on turn 5.

Exactly. The two pieces which would help the most (ring & pants) both drop in 5. And at that point, so does the bow, which has Acc. lol

I ran with 464 acc buff on my bard for turn 4 and 5 and parsed no misses. It should be doable as before I got my allagan bow i used elfin in coil. The only time I pump my acc up is for ADS for silence but even then I could probably drop it a little.

It is not possible to cap acc for T5 with the elfin bow prior to T5 with all i90 gear. You'll have to keep a few DL pieces to just get near it. My BRD is i85 with DL head, legs, and neck and even if I were to get the visor(which would add 10 acc) I'd still only be at 480 with stuffed cabbage.

What are the BRD caps for 4 & 5? I thought it was 475. I'm at 503 currently.

They aren't. They are missing quite a bit or giving up WAY more in stats from other gear to make up for it making using the bow pointless. Anyone wearing an elfin bow in Coil is automatically viewed as a noob to anyone who sees him/her.
