This. I parsed the difference between having a dmg proc relic with on use power and on use power with power proc relic (the PvP 410 power for 6 seconds). Dmg from that combination was a lot higher. As well as the actual times it procced.

Sorry I'm not good with remembering the names of stuff. I can give you specifics:

I think it's the Partisan Relic of ------ : (PVP relic, just look at your PvP vendor and search for this kind of description)
Equip: Has a 30% chance while healing or doing damaging abilities, to increase your power by 410 for 6 seconds, can not occur more then once every 20 seconds.

The other one I used is the Dreadguard Relic of Boundless Ages(There's an upgraded Arkanian one that I will be getting soon.)
On use: Increases power by 350 for 30 seconds. The total CD on it is 2 minutes.

The power relic procced pretty much every 20 seconds give or take. So during the time I have the on use relic popped (30 seconds) The proccing relic has the chance to proc twice within that time netting you a 12 second dps window of an additional 760 power.

To note: I'm an advent fan of using project when possible. Now it's a move I use when that power relic pops. It hits so hard with the extra power it's nice.

Yes. The on proc power relic has 18 base power and you can augment towards power so add 32 power and you even out from either DPS relic. That will be 50 power altogether on the PVP relic, so you are losing 63 power from switching out the old PVP relic. BUT every 20 seconds you gain 410 power for 6 seconds and it procs a lot.

Now, the Ultimate vendor relic is completely ******. It gives you 23 power from equipping which you can augment towards power to get that 32 additional power + 550 power on proc. It's just too nice to pass up.

Especially if you are balance. You have a ton of DOTs which are dmging abilities, so every tic has 30% chance to apply the power buff. That's why I'm guessing it was proccing for me every 20 seconds.

If they proc on different rate limits let me know. I was going to look into it when I got the PVE one.
