Accuracy

Is there anyone still bothering to maintain 100% accuracy on their tanks?

Running zero accuracy from itemisation on my campaign/BH geared Jugg and columi/rakata PT. Not really seeing any drawback to doing it either, having zero threat issues that can't be fixed with a taunt and able to take more hits.

I'd love for a dev to explain why all the tanking gear has so much Accuracy, it seems completely pointless.

I sit at around 95% accuracy because I haven't managed to swap the mods out for something better yet. I haven't noticed a difference at all.

My belief is that we have lots of accuracy because we do lots of white damage (sins excluded) and they were trying to compensate. I don't see a use for it in PvE particularly - in PvP I still get some use out of it when attacking other tanks.

Even for PvP I don't see a use, since attacking other tanks is our last priority.

No, I wouldn't shoot for it specifically. I'm just saying that's where I see some difference because atm I'm stuck with it.

No. I compared logs weeks ago and spent millions in credits changing mods around with accuracy and back out to see a difference. Here is what I noticed:

- I was more squishy as a tank because I had those stupid 51 accuracy mods instead of shield in its place.
- The amount I missed on the same end game bosses week to week in my comparison was less than 15 misses total over the course of the ENTIRE raid night in 16 man EC HM. 15 misses that included 4 bosses, and all the trash in surrounding it.

Accuracy is pointless.
