    I assume you're going for a good ol' fashioned DPS build?

    Artifact: Pick one of either Sigil of the GWF or Sigil of the DC for mobs; Soul Sight Crystal on bosses
    Neck: Company edit: Raider Cloak (thanks Sacra!)
    Waist: Greater Owlbear Belt of Intelligence

    For a DPS CW, no, they are not. When compared to the "set" @rjc9000 mentioned (assuming he meant Company Raider Cloak, not Duelist), setting aside some stat distributions (for example, 530 Pene vs 530 crit) their main differences come down to 4% ap gain/ 3 sec + 2 WIS + 1500 Recovery + 3000 Movement vs 4 INT. 4 INT is a raw 4% dps increase (+a little more from LS, which I'm going to overlook in order for this to be as simple as possible). In order for a endgame bis CW to achieve a 4% increase in dps, the amount of power needed is close to 10k (assumed total power 200k, which very common for any decent+ group. In the case of bis party you can achieve 250k, making 4 INT worth almost 12k Power). While the extra AP Gain and the CAD from CHA are quite nice to have, the extra damage from INT heavily outweighs them. (Movement won't be needed in an endgame party, and Recovery will be good to have, but not nearly good enough to compare.)
    Piece by piece.

    Take a stroll through the latest cw dps guide on the main cw library thread and plan for 12b:

    With loadouts this set can be helpful if you plan to play as a MoF buffer. If not, than your best bet is with the Company Raider Cloak and Greater Int Belt.

    Check out Sharp CW guide, a guide to mechanics not a build. Great thing to read if you really want to learn about all the nitty gritty of being a CW.
