Relic Choice

7 posts in this topic

Hopefully an easy question. I have always just gone for the top trait relics but now i have a non top relic and need to understand the comparison chart. Does the Weapon iLvl column # the number that should be added to the +50 Item levels for example? is a say +51 item level with Jaws of Thunder the same value (60) as  a +60 item level Furious swipes  or do i add the Trait bonus so to speak to the ~900 item level? Thanks you for the clarification.

Yes, +51 ilvl Jaws is around the equivalent of +60 Furious Swipes. At that stage the stat difference for your weapon starts to become a lot more prevalent and makes up for the difference in traits.

Thanks Luth wasnt sure if we added the 9 to the 900 or the 51 to compare

All good - just based on the relic ilvl from my understanding. 7.2.5 hits next week so there's a shakeup of everything then anyway!

You might want to hold off for now. Pach 7.2.5 is just about to drop and the top traits are getting nerfed, so the ilvl equivalent of the traits are going down.

I'll keep that in mind Khallid. Thank you. i upgraded from one of the top ones to an unleash the beast that i think was a 10 item level + and actual item level that was 25 higher from a 875 to a 900. It wasn't my top choice but was a nice upgrade in the meantime, at least for these 2 weeks i guess lol.

Jaws & slithering serpents are looking to be definite BiS traits. Frustrating that the nerfs between pack & jaws were so different, but at least I managed to save up 3 jaws relics that are same ilvl as my pack relics for this coming week.

      Hello all rogues in Azeroth. I'm a 915 assasination rogue. Can pull 1,5m burst dps and substain around 700-900k dps during longer fights. 
      Since my question is about relics I don't feel the use of armory and logs to answer my question. 
      My weapon is ilvl 920 and I feel it's falling behind with my raidpartners and I'm thinking of when to switch out what I'm using. Since I'm using two master assasin + boots my vendetta is on around 45 sec CD
      I have: 
      shadow: 905 toxic blade relic.
      Iron: 885 master assasin relic.
      Blood: 900 master assasin relic.

      Should I focus more on ilvl with for example Iron-relic? 
      See you around and remember. If someone scary comes. Vanish, shadowstep, Mutilate

      Ok so let me start out by saying my weapon is lvl 885(fire artifact) and has the following relics equipped: 

      Fires of Heaven 855 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      Raven's sight 865 +20% FS (Arcane)
      Fires of Heaven 845 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      (I know it doesnt add 10% each)

      i have in my bag i have:

      Seawitch's Foci 840 +12% Ignite (Arcane)
      Sizziling Fang 875 +12% Ignite (Fire)
      Soulforge Ember 835+12% Ignite (Fire)
      Molten Giant's Eye 860+3% Fire crit (Fire)
      Fires of Heaven 840 +10% Pyro (Fire)

      Ok last time i took out an Ignite relic i lost 40-50k dps. I put in the 855 Fires of Heaven relic and just did not stack up even though it was a 10ilvl increase. So my question is should i go tripple Ignite? or maybe double ignite with the crit relic too. I care a lot more about mythic + dps more than raid so keep that in mind. it doesnt seem like the pyro one is very good compared to ignite. Also if anyone can offer an explanation as to why i lost so much dps by switching in the supposedly best relic (pyro) that would be great. My best guess is that i was on some kind of soft cap with mastery and that it did a lot more dps but idk

      I think the best two options are running three ignite for insane cleave damage in mythic plus or, Sizziling Flame, Molten Giant, and Seawitch.

      Here on Icy Vein's under the Arms Warrior DPS guide here is the recommended relic choice. I was under the impression that [Exploit the Weakness] was our top priority even if it meant 20-25iLvl difference. Since it would increase the proc chance by a factor of x2 with all three relics increasing Tacticians...
      Why does this guide on Icy Veins say otherwise? Is it because the information is out of date and hasn't been updated?

      Unfortunately this is not someting I can just run a Sim on because I don't currently have any [Exploit the Weakness] relics.

      Which is better an 865 relic with Firestorm: http://www.wowdb.com/spells/191740-firestorm#related:improved-by or an 865 relic with Earthen Attunement: http://www.wowdb.com/spells/191598-earthen-attunement?artifactRank=1

      I am in need of help. My Doomhammer is currently on 887 itemlevel. From this weeks world boss I got 860 ilvl "Calamir's Jaw" which gives "Each target hit by crash lightning increases damage dealt by my next stormstrike by 2%. (which is semi ok).
      BUT my current one is a 850 ilvl "Torch of shaladrassil" with 10% increased attack speed when stormstrike proccs.
      So the question is, do I switch to the 860 ilvl one? It boosts doomhammer from 887 to 890. BUT i loose 10% attack speed. goes from 40% to 30%. Is it worth it? I feel stormstrike proccs alot and the attackspeed is very useful.
