I recently startet to "raid" and i was told to get an accuraty rating of atleast 110 for eternity vault. Now first of all it was very expensive and hard to get the rating from AH.

Now after the raid i tjecked the gear from the merchants out, and to my astonishment force-master and force-mystic dont have that stat on em at all.

I felt forced to by stalker pants from the token that droped to get accuraty, now as a sith sorc. it felt odd.

Could someone please tell me how i should go about this. Should i as Sith Sorc. consentrate on acc. rating at all or not...?

if you are heals, i think you just need 100%, but if you are dps, you should get more. your teammates are not going to parry, deflect or whatever you heals, but if u have less than 100, you could miss. if you are dps, your enemies could parry, deflect etc., so u need a lil extra to help ensure contact and that some lightning resistance doesnt get the better of you.

I have 0 accuracy as Sorc heals and have yet to see a heal miss. Can anyone confirm if this is required at all for heals (I have assumed not)

There was accuracy on the head piece that dropped for me last night from the first boss (im an assassin)

Though I went in with just 96% accuracy and did just fine (most people had a simalar gear to what I had stat wise)

Imo unless you are doing the heroic version not having 100% seems to make very little difference.

Just go by the Tiered PvE gear.. I don't know what you're guild is thinking, pretty much anything can be downed on normal in daily mods, and columi in HM.

I also don't think acc. does anything for heals, as its a roll against your targets defense rating, and its not an offensive skill.

Accuracy does not calculate into healing at all, it's a stat that calculates against enemy status in order to calculate your and their hit rates.

Enemies status are not calculated with Healing as it is a player to player move, so as such is impossible to miss with Healing anyway.

In terms of usefulness Accuracy is Tank>DPS>Healer.

Tanks need it slightly more than DPS because they hold aggro, which means they are attacked more so they need enemies to miss more, which requires higher Accuracy ratings.

Wrong.

Accuracy has nothing to do with defense. At all.

It only has to do with you hitting the mob. That's it. Period.
