I absolutely love the usukane design, If I could wear it in real life, you damn well better believe I would.

Hey! Full usu is the most awesomeist thing in FFXI.

Plus it saves your *** a good amount. If you die then what happens?

0 > 1 basically for your parse.

If I'm in a meripo then it's full haste gear, but that's about it.
That's what PDT gear and Seigan/Utsusemi is for.

ftfy.
It's the same deal as Ace's helm and Askar head, really.

If full usu caps your acc while using meat (SAM polearm), yes.
but that only happens if you have millions of gear everywhere else, so most ppl are better off with a bigger haste setup + sushi.

Hitting acc cap is easier with full usu >.> it has more acc without dropping too much haste then a mixed build. I have 93-94% hit rate on birds without full usu with meats. You don't need sushi.

I personally prefer 2% haste over 9 acc but that's just me.

edit: If you use ace's helm it's 2 acc vs 1% haste. I think also prefer 1% haste over 2 acc, always.

I don't see how it has more accuracy:

Aces helm > usu head
Haubergeon +1 > usu body
Byakko pants > usu pants

Unless there is accuracy on that gear that is not in the text.

Edit: Nvm usu body is more 2 more dex than hauby, that should be a massive bonus >.>

Ace's is actually better than 5/5 usu for acc(since you're giving up 1% haste for 7 acc, instead of 2% for 9 acc). Why are you insulting it?

I personally wouldn't use either. I like turban and haste better with pizza.

Since we are talking about usu set as a whole you have to include the other gear.

usu set is 36 acc,13 dex = ~56 total acc
a mixed set of aces/hauby+1/dusk/byakkos/usufeet is 26 acc, 21 dex which is ~ 52 total acc

so yes full usu is easier to get higher acc with

Nobody ever said that. What thread are you reading? They were just saying full usu has more acc. Besides the point though, lolace's. Use haste set up WITH TURBAN

I'm reading the thread I started and still don't see a reason why I see sams using 5/5 Usukane during battle.

Yes, I'm talking gkt here. Polearm meat is another story, which I only do AT birds. When I use polearm elsewhere I use pizza and haste build.
