i know the difference between the two, but which one is more useful? by useful i mean tonewise, like, is having your sound boosted and "squished" better than having an extensive EQ? or vice versa? im a noob with these pedals as ive never had one

I'd think that the EQ gives you more possibilities. A compressor will work with the tone you've already got. The EQ will help you shape that tone into something else. I'm not an expert by any means, but it just kinda seems like common sense to me.

id personally rather have an eq to a compressor
with an eq you can fine tune your tone more
i dont really find a need for a compressor i like my dinamics to be as dinamic as possible

They're both important, in my opinion. I wouldn't necessarily put one above the other. Each can be used equally to shape your tone.
I can only listen to so many breakdowns and "spoken word" vocals before I wanna puke.

I find Jennette McCurdy attractive, but Elizabeth Gillies and Debby Ryan much more so.

That's enough, Djent people. We get it.

I always use my eq. I never use compression.
