Relic placed in bottom slot not triggering

I dumped my Partisan Relic of Shield Amplification after the patch for the Conqueror Relic of Fortunate Redoubt. I kept my Conqueror Relic of Shield Amplification in the top slot and placed the fresh Redoubt in the bottom. As I was playing, I noticed the Redoubt never triggered. So I switched them around on the character page and sure enough, the Redoubt started triggering when it was in the top slot, but not the Shield Amp on the bottom. Every time. Anyone else noticing this with their relics? I wonder if its doing this with the dps relics.

Guys on mmo mechanics forums are saying the PVE relics are doing this too. The UW SA relic 20 sec proc blocks the timer with the 4.5 sec damage proc relic and vise versa from what they say. I have yet to try it myself but it seems as tho BW has screwed the proverbial pooch yet again. I am sure they will get it right on the 4th or 5th try. When i get a chance to do some testing I will test out the conq SA with the conq 4.5 sec damage relics and see if the timers are blocking eachother.

Ok, had a friend do testing for me with pvp relics 5 min parses. (thanks dig)
With just the conq SA relic, it triggers on cooldown, ever 20-22 seconds. (14 total)

With just the partisan damage on proc relic, 40 hits total

With both, partDP conqSA, SA relic will not triger when a damage proc relic took its cooldown. (12 total)

Turns out that when the SA relic was due to proc and the other reilc proced instead, it was put on a 4.5 sec cooldown. So i have instances of 20-21 second cooldowns then all of a sudden a 29-35 second cooldown when the proc relic triggers in its spot.

The damage proc reilc contines to hit 39 times total, so i think its functioning correctly.
Moral of the story is that the matrix cube will end up being best in slot i think, due to it being bolsterd well.

Thanks for the info, bro. I guess it is time to visit Dromund Kaas.

Not sure if I'm on the right page here, but my Absorb and Defence relics proc fine on my Assassin for PvE (using partisan relics). Though I haven't noticed during PvP.

Guess I wasted comms/augment kit getting the Conq internal force proc yesterday instead of using the Matrix Cube.

ROFL!

So they fixed the relic proc stacking by removing procs from the bottom relic slot. That's classic.
