Armbands

Tekura seems to be a strange subject that my faction has a hard time being definite on.  I reached out and did not get the response I was looking for so I will ask here.  In regards to the artifact armband, what does it actually improve upon? Does it help with dodging? Does it help with Sweepkick? What exactly am I getting if I purchase this?

2020/2/14/8:20 Sure! Tekura armbands are a boost to accuracy modifiers on your attacks.

I borrowed a set and couldn't figure how it was an improvement.  For $300 I would like to know.

    It's exactly what Mak said. Though I'm not sure tekura really has problems hitting people anymore, except maybe high dex serpents. Dodging is what they helped with, yes.

    Airlords and Serpents are what the armband is for. Airlords you'll typically have around a 50% miss rate with normal Tekura, but sweepkick doesn't miss and they can't mount, so you can just sweep hammerfist for a slower prep.

    Serpents with high dex are actually opressive to fight as a Tekura Monk. Santar, who has prioritized Dex and dodging traits, weaves and mounts, I have a 90%+ miss rate on with no armband in some fights. I've thrown four combos in a row and not landed a single hit.

    Yeah I get the problem, do they help with dodges or just misses? I was under the impression that accuracy only applied to an attack’s chance to miss, not it being dodged? Just looking to clarify that.

    Dodges, AFAIK, are included. Misses due to clumsy might actually be a flat proc chance regardless of armband. I don't have enough information to say there.

    Here I am thinking somebody else shared my frustrations with armbands being hidden my sleeves....

    Armband doesn't alter clumsy, it's just accuracy which clumsy doesn't affect. Pretty much just vs avoidance checks.
