Between the two I'd definitely go for Zahak's. More DEX and crit+3% for those epeen crit procs; it'll be nice for RR too when you can spare some acc.

Get some friends together and go beat up Suzy, no Sky shell required!

Glad to help :)

Not trying to hijack either, but, simple question I've been wondering about for a while.

STR+4/WSDmg+2%/WSACC+15 MKD hat or hecatomb? I want to say MKD (mostly because Odin's my only source of N.head).

Edit: My current drakes set, if it matters:

NHead is by far the best max damage option, especially if the DEX matters. With your gear Nhead is definitely the way to go.

I'm in the same boat as you, Proth, except my gear's still nowhere near yours xD. Stuff like NHead and Legs are Odin-onry for me, and my Ein shell is nowhere near ready for him.

Random question for either of ya, is 2STR worth losing 5 attack for Drakes? Switching out Spike for Bushi, if you need specifics.

Depends on your buffs and total STR, but as a general rule I'd use Bushi unless I knew I wasn't getting a WSC increase from it. Aesir might be another story in low attack situations or if a Conserve TP proc saves you a hit to WS.

Well, either way, I'd be getting a WSC increase, wouldn't I? Bushi is 2STR, Drakes is 50% STR mod, or am I figuring WSC wrong again? xD

There's a value called alpha that's applied after WSC is totalled. At level 75, a = 0.83. There's a flooring step after alpha is applied, so occasionally you appear to gain 1 WSC but you don't actually receive the bonus.
