Some say hover and some say drag, what do you guys say? (I'm talking about tablets)

I say it's a matter of preference, but personally I hover.

I don't use a tablet for osu! but I drag whenever I draw on PaintTool SAI. Hovering to me, at least, feels less accurate since dragging is pretty much the same as drawing with a pencil on paper

Do whatever feels the most comfortable to you. Doing anything uncomfortable makes you unable to focus on anything.
So just play a bit around and find what suits you the best.

I used to tap everything since that meant snapping to every single note, but the downside is that it engages a complex movement that jerks you to a certain point. It's effective for what it does, but can be very taxing and sometimes hard to coordinate with the keyboard.

Never dragged; too much friction. I bet it'd be better with a smaller active area.

Hovering is nice since it requires a very simple movement and also allows you to adjust your movement, approximating the right distance as you go along. Real nice for patterns with equal distance snap, though I prefer tapping otherwise.

Dragging can wear out nibs a lot faster but that's pretty much the only difference it makes.

I drag for streams and sliders.
I hover to cover distance in between jumps and tend to hover spaced streams.

Other than that my pen nib makes brief contact with the tablet surface every snap.

I think i'm getting a huion. What happens if i use ALL of my nibs?

Buy 4 more for like $10 or something. Usually it takes a few months to wear away one with dragging. I think dustice drags and has something he does to combat nib issues but cant remember offhand.

I myself hover. 1 reason for this is i'm afraid the nib will wear down fast xD I prefer hovering too, i find it easier.

If you're afraid of your nib wearing down consider buying a felt tip nib.

I used to hover, but dragging helped me improve slightly.

highly depends on your pen grip, your hand size and your technique as well.
