Hopefully someone sees this...

With the upcoming log in campaign dropping items for +2, I wanted to prioritize the pieces. Unfortunately, I'll be traveling a lot and will only be able to upgrade a few items from +1 to +2. Here was my priorities, but let me know if you think I should move things around:

1. Lancer's Mezail +2 (Head)
2. Lancer's Vambraces +2 (Hands)
3. Lancer's Schynbalds +2 (Feet)
4. Lancer's Cuissots +2 (Legs)
5. Lancer's Plackart +2 (Body)

Here's a link to the comparisons: Lancer's +2 Set Comparison

Additionally, are any of the Perle pieces better than the Lancer +1 pieces? Doesn't look like it to me, but wanted to see if anyone had thoughts on that.

Thanks!

Outside of a couple pieces being slightly better for weaponskill purposes, like Perle Sollerets and Salade, the Lancer +2 set is vastly superior to Perle all in all. For someone leveling Dragoon and not having any access into the level 99 gear yet (assuming you don't), every piece of Lancer +2 is really useful in one form or another.

Lancer's Mezail +2 = Great TP piece for its level, but gets replaced at 99 by gear easily purchasable through Bayld (Karieyh set)
Lancer's Plackart +2 = Amazing TP piece and good WS piece for its level. Though there are better options at 99 for WS bodies, for a TP piece it still has its place if you need to take advantage of the Store TP on it.
Lancer's Vambraces +2 = Good WS piece and good for Spirit Link. Better WS options at 99 and even in the low 70's (if you are using Drakesbane), but the Spirit Link effect is still useful.
Lancer's Cuissots +2 = Amazing weaponskill piece for its level and great Spirit/Soul Jump piece. If you are using Drakesbane then you will always be weaponskilling in these pants due to the +10% Crit hit damage from them. Likewise, due to the crit hit damage, they are good for Spirit and Soul Jump, as those are guaranteed critical hits if you have your Wyvern out.
Lancer's Schynbalds +2 = Good TP piece for its level, but better options come at 99.

Given how useful I personally feel they are, my list for them would be:

1) Cuissots +2
2) Plackart +2
3) Vambraces +2
4/5) Mezail and Schynbalds +2 are pretty much the same
