Suikoden V may have sorta separate stats (i forget), but one of them is the base skill value and the other is the base + modifications such as armor and skills that modify the accuracy. TECH is still the underlying base stat that determines the critical hit rates..
but that is Suikoden V.
Wrong, Suikoden I and II doesnt have anything like that... you're thinking of V i think...
at some point the game calculates "Hit %", and that's when TECH/SKL is a major factor in determining accuracy, but other things such as Thunder Amulet and Thunder God Garb will also play a role. Suikoden V just shows the base accuracy value in the Stats screen while II and other games do not.
