It's personal preference, all we can do is suggest stuff. Your headtube angle will play a big part in what offset forks you want, as does style of riding.
If you want a responsive front end, get steep forks. If you want a responsive frame, get short chainstays. If you want it more stable, get longer chainstays and longer offset forks.

Personally I have my back wheel at around about 13.5". And I have 28mm offset forks, with a 74.5 headtube angle. I ride street, but I'm not too technical, and I'm old so I'm more used to older geometry. However, I'd like to go a gnats chuff steeper on my headtube angle on my next frame.

Bb height also affects how your bike feels overall. Lower is more stable, higher is more responsive.

I'd suggest that rather than getting both at the same time, you get one of them first, ride it for a while to see if you like it and then maybe consider getting the other part.

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Let's give the guy a second chance, we can always meme him to death later on if he's still a cunt.

To the OP, I changed from a 74.5HT angle and 13.5"CS to a 75.5HT and 12.75ish CS and been loving it so far. I mainly do small and quick stuff on street, just all kinds of jibbing in general so the added responsiveness definitely suits my riding.

Depends on what you want. Steep means more twitchy and faster steering input. Easier for stuff like nose tricks but not as forgiving on stuff like trails.
