Other Relic Explanation Posts: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=728264 1.post
There was no change in relics for a long time, so the math is still the same and correct (i did the maths when they buffed the shield amplification with i think 2.4 and it was still the same...)

Okay. Reactive Warding and Fortunate Redoubt are the BiS relics currently. I'm clear on that. Can I get some confirmation on what level of relic though?

eg; is Arkanian RW still BiS or is it now Dread Master or even Obroan or whatever. Same with Fortunate Redoubt?

Is this for both relics? I was under the impression (when I last looked) that it was Arkanian RW and Dread Master FR? (that was when Arkanian RW doubled proc'd) Or is Dread Master Both relics BiS?

Also, if that's the case, how does Arkanian rate higher for both relics?

Arkanian rw stopped being bis when 2.7 came out with brutalizer relics, prior to that it was.

Sorry, must have skimmed your question badly; it's only for Reactive Warding.

In Hard Mode, RW is the BiS relic for all tanks. In Nightmare Mode, RW is the BiS relic for all tanks except for Vanguards/Powertechs on Brontes (where the Ephemeral Mending is better), and possibly Shadow/Assassin tanks on Tyrans.

Are you saying Shadow/Assassin should use SA and FR for Tyrans?

If you're not running hybrid, maybe. If you're in hybrid, absolutely not, and I doubt that the non-hybrid numbers are high enough to make the SA better than the RW.
