What is the best in slot head for stacked and unstacked Rudra's? Is it Pillager's +1 with SA/TA and now maybe Skulker's +1 for unstacked? Possibly Skulker's +1 for both?

First about unstacked: in that case, you just should worry for stacking DEX and attack if you need it.

Pillager+1: 27
Plunderer+1: 31
Skulker+1: 33
Imperor wing hairpin+1 with max unity rank: 34
Taeon: 23~33 (with DEX+10) or DEX 23 and wsd 3%

I did some calcs (hidden in spoilers), and concluded that Taeon 3% wsd is better than 10 DEX by a considerable amount, so Taeon 3% wsd should beat even Imperor head+1 thats the highest possible DEX head piece up to date. Add extra 20~25 att to make Taeon pull more a bit ahead over the others non att options against high lv mobs.

For rudra stacked, crit dmg+ is similar to wsd, and +3% crit dmg/wsd is better thn 10 DEX like previously deduced, so there are just 2 possible contenders:

Pillagers+1: 27 DEX 3% crit dmg
Taeon: 23 DEX 3% wsd

In that case, depend mainly of how much attack will make diference, but given how high lv mobs have stupid high defense (something like 2000+) normally 1 att << 1 DEX, while depending of how much debuffed it is/how much buffed youre 1 att can be irrelevant. For dynamis scenario where you are already attack capped with a rcb, pillagers+1 is better, and I think most of time, just pillager+1 will do the trick.

There's no Treasure Hunter on the headpiece, so you don't need one.

An att/DEX ratio depend mainly of the target.

To see how much DEX or att can contribute, you can do

DEX contribution = DEX/(D+fstr+0,8*TOTALDEX)

att contribution = att/targetdefense

Lets say 20 att from taeon.

For a mob with

100 def: extra 20 att will mean an increase of 20% WSD
1000 def: extra 20 att will mean an increase of 2% WSD
2000 def: extra 20 att will mean an increase of 1% WSD
5000 def: extra 20 att will mean an increase of 0.4% WSD

For comparison, Tojil is around 1000 defense, Ark Angel VD should be around 5000.

Thanks for the help seems to be spot on to what I was thinking Pillagers+1 for stacked and augmented Taeon for unstacked.
