Hello i am just starting to build my drk drain III and dread spikes sets and no i dont have all the pieces i need yet but i will get there.

For now what i want to to know is what is the best leg gear for drain III set ? Should i use the emp +1 heathen legs for the nether void +35, or would i be better off using relic legs +3 or ratri legs +1 since those have dark magic skill and magic accuracy on them

Also i have noticed ratri feet have dark magic duration on them, am i correct in assuming they would extend my hp bonus longer than the 3minutes it last or is it another type of gear to do that ?

That are cool questions but they were answered many times before. Please search the threads before making new one...
Empy legs are worn for JA activation. You dont need them for cast to gain effect.

Retri feet will extend Drian III buff and they are used with Relic head and 5/5 Dark Seal to extend duration of HP buff above 5min, which let you Nether Void/Dark Seal Drain III again to keep high HP buff all the time (assuming no dispels).

3 Minutes is really low drain duration, which tells me you're not doing a few things. Simon stated it clearly, but just in case you missed the specific details to enhance Drain duration:

Use Heathen Cuisses +1 DURING Nether Void Activation
Augment Dark Seal to 5/5
Use Relic head (augment) DURING your Drain III to give max duration bonus
Use Ratri Feet DURING Drain III to enhance duration even further
ALWAYS USE DRAIN 3 WITH DSNV, if possible

And if possible, try to hold DS&NV until close to or after you and a partner (or trust) have over 1000 TP. Use it (good for 45-60 seconds I think?), then WS darkness so you can MB drain III. If you open a SC, you'll be less likely to have the spell interrupted. If you close one, it may be more potent, but you may take hate and get your spell disrupted too.

Curious about people's preferences:

Pixie Hairpin +1 for greater potency or Fallen's Burgonet +3 for longer duration on Drain III?

I use Pixie Hairpin only when DS/NV is down (mostly like because my Drain 3 HP boost was performed but dispelled early. So wearing Fallen without being able to activate DS seems moot to me.
