If you have the love torque then the collar has no place in any thief builds.
Melphina, you know a good bit about THF but I'm gonna say you have it wrong here; "no place" is kinda silly. You know how we THFs will even tote a +steal set from time to time, if we waste our time on that then 1att and 5 SB is definitely worth picking up. lol
The collar beats love torque anytime you have cruor buffs and RR basically in abyssea. Outside abyssea love torque wins, inside it wins until you get better atma. But for as long as abyssea reigns the end-be-all of endgame, that collar is slightly better than love torque for TP. WS well... We're all agreed on love torque whipping **** on that.
I would however say I completely agree with Melphina that if you have a Love Torque the collar should be nowhere near the top of your "Do want" list. 5 SB and 1 att is an improvement in most situations TP wise we find ourselves in now, but there is WAY more you should be focusing on. Twilight belts, TotM daggers, loki's kaftan, AF3+2, etc.
EDIT: Also, grats on your love torque, it's an EXTREMELY good piece with multiple functions. Edited, Feb 3rd 2011 9:35pm by ElvaanTHF
