This is regarding using Drakesbane, as to which would be better.
Polearm capped out, including 8/8 in merits.
What would be better when using Drakesbane?
Anyone experimented with them having 8/8 merits and polearm capped?

I don't have DRG leveled but I'd say Love Torque.

Dragoons are notorious for their lack of accuracy.

Although the gorget tends to be king for its increase to DMG & acc for the WS, I would say go with love for the simple fact that it adds a ton of crit mods for drakes. Aside from maximum contact, that's where it really shines.

I'm sure someone has some fancy math to prove me wrong or support this better than I can explain but simply my view on it.

The difference in damage between them is almost non-existant and tips in favor of Love Torque during low pDif or the DEX ups your critrate.

Praecis is total trash in an average ws set. Maybe the new viking helm with that praecis to cover the acc loss, but otherwise 15acc on neck would be overkill.

I also say love, that's what I used since it had dex and gave some atk. Gorget is just a slight DMG increase and a few more acc. neither is really bad though.

The Argument with Praecis is that for Multi-Hit WS Gorgets only increase the Damage of the first hit, Praecis Gorget would benefit all hits of a WS, not to mention adding to your Conserve TP percentage.
