They dont really directly compete with lancers for anything.
Head: Breath helm like its always been. No other use besides stopgap WS hat till you get anything better.
Body: Only piece with any combat use. Haste option if using a 6hit build, but competes with fazhulo and aces.
Hands: Magic damage swap for your wyvern if you care to do that.
Legs: Phy swap for wyvern if your into that. Possible high jump macro for the (supposed) hate loss. Otherwise there are better damage options for high jump. I dont really use HJ anymore, let alone care enough to swap out legs, but each their own. Stopgap for WS gear till lancers finished.
Feet: Breath piece. Mediocre WS piece hold over if you cant get anything else (heca etc)
They are all really just macro pieces or very situational (body). Combat wise theres nothing to be excited about really. Wyvern breath wise its epic. Head and feet are gonna rock for that. legs/hands just kidna meh. Wyvern damage down build...cant get to excited about it. But 2 good pieces, 1 situational, and 2 bleh isnt a bad deal. Thats more than they were worth at 75 (only head mattered for anything then)
