I was told that with one 20% armor debuff on the boss, or ops dummy, the relic procs for 218. I do not have the daily comms to test this, but if so then the kinetic is better. If someone could give me that information that would be amazing. (You could buy the relic and sell it back if it doesn't work)
EDIT: Ahha! Talked to a friend in MoX, the Kinetic does 219 damage with a 20% armor debuff. It is superior in an operation.
Great, thanks for the confimation
