Has anyone figured out yet if you use a Weapon that out levels you does it cause you to get Less SP then with a weapon that is your level or lower?

accuracy is lower with a weapon that is higher than your rank - less acc. equals less SP, especially in groups

I just upgraded to a Plumed Willow Shortbow from my Maple Longbow. I am a 16ARC. I was missing pretty hard before, and I still am now, so I haven't really noticed a difference. I figured it would help to grow into the new bow. I hit harder, but I think my accuracy has stayed the same. I dunno, just my thoughts.

I'm pretty sure there is nothing hidden from the Acc stat in Attributes and Gear windows, and that many higher weapon scale better than lower weapon in this regards. I'm using Iron Spear at r25, and it gives more ATK + Acc than a Brass Spear +1 and I notice I hit much more often as well, might be because I'm only 1 rank short of the Optimal Rank. Also slightly off topic, but if you want more SP use an attack that also debuff, more SP gain.
