It's a fluff relic with a long internal cooldown that may or may not benefit you in any real way.

Relics as a whole offer very little to tanks in general. Grab an absorb and defense proc relic. Change them out based on the damage you'll be seeing in the fight (M/R heavy vs F/T heavy). Grab the shield/abs clicky relic so you have an on demand relic that stacks with your adrenal.

No matter what you're doing with your relics they are likely not going to change much. Very very little of your overall damage reduction is going to come from them. Even looking at the argument of the warding relic and all its amazing ability. 1000 dmg/40s, avg 5.5 minute fight (330s) = 9000 damage absorbed in a perfect world. Overheal from SRMP is going to be in the area of 10-20 times that for comparison.

TLDR: Relics matter very little to tanks as a whole. None of them are world beaters. Equip the one you feel aids your playstyle the best. The rest is RNG.

Would the Arkanian RW be a better choice than the Underworld Absorb relic, until we down the boss in DP that drops the Dread Forged RW relic?
Mo'rg 55 Juggernaut Tank -- Prototype'X 55 Powertech Tank
Mor'goth 55 Sniper DPS -- Necrus 55 Assassin Tank

There currently seems to be a lockout bug with the Arkanian one that lets it proc around every 20s, it makes it pretty competitive with the DF RW one if you don't PVP (to get the Obroan one)

The Obroan one definitely has the 40 second lockout (smallest interval in last night's logs was 40.112 seconds) so if the Arkanian one is currently proc'ing at twice the rate I'll use that for now
