Arkanian Relic of Serendipitous Assault

Arkanian Relic of Elemental Transcendence
Arkanian Relic of Boundless Ages is your third choice - you should mix and match based upon your own preferences. If you are bad at clicking/activating cool downs, then the two you are listed are better - and on many fights will net you more DPS anyway. On fights like Kephess in TFB, the power click raises in value. But yeah, you have the names right

110% - it's in the writeup

I revised that part a little - it is a personal choice. On fights where there are boss immunity or heavy movement - it is better to have a power click relic than the power proc relic so you can actually decide when you want that power boost. That being said - it should proc somewhere around 12-14 times over the course of a 5 minute fight, so if you lose one, you aren't losing its total effectiveness.

Getting mid 8k turbulences with double proc relics is fun.

Also, are we still utilizing the hard cast mind crush opener?

So Nibbon what are your thoughts on the power proc and power click relic. I already have the Underworld power proc and am still using DG clicky and I like the feel of it. Is this that far behind the 2 procs or damage proc/power clicky?
Asylum-The Harbinger
Beskosei-Shadow DPS
Jongom-Sage DPS
Smugbesk-Scoundrel Healer

I think you can't really go wrong. Anything beyond that I have already expressed in the original writeup (revised this morning) - but in summation, you are fine using the power click relic, I like it for situational fights and plan on using it in my normal gearing (along with the damage proc relic, which I already have).

Mr. Nibbon, you stated, you don't want to concentrate on critical, so basically concentrate getting your acc to 110% then the rest power/surges sir ?for TK DPS Sage?

It's all in the OP. 0 crit all power, 6 accuracy enhancements + 4 surge ones for TK.

Awesome work as usual Nibbon. Balance Q for you: You say you pop CDs after the WM. That means SF eats up your second Potency, doesn't it? I was under the impression that you always wanted Potency to go to TTx2 or FiB+TT. Am I out of the loop on the theory there?

SF does not eat up a potency. It will be consumed on FiB and a TT.

I was wondering about gearing for hybrid balance, would that just be the same as full balance?
