Welcome. I have reformatted the guide to make it seem less overwhelming using spoiler tags. Also made some basic edits to make it more readable. I plan on updating this guide one more time with the next tier of gear - that will probably be my last. As always, edits are tracked in the next post and feel free to reply to the thread with questions - but I implore you to search for answers to your questions first.

Hey Nibbon, I didn't see it in the post and I was wondering what the dps difference was between Clamoring Force and Force Gift talents. This would be for full Balance spec.

About 14 DPS on average lower - I did thorough testing on PTS with the difference on force gift and clamoring force and can confirm I did parse lower more times than not with clamoring force.

Fun fact - if you took two points out of penetrating light and put them into clamoring force, you would also lose 14 dps on average.

Hey Nibbon, appreciate all of the information. The two proc relics do work together, one of my guildmates has tested this. So what you are saying is that the power and damage proc are better, but the power click may be better depending on the situation?

Fun note, I purchased the PvP power proc relic(+410) just because... Then the next day I got the Arkanian (+510 power)

They can stack and and aren't on the same 20 second timer.

I've been spending my time doing practicing on lvl 55 Operation Dummy, getting a lot of resists on it..my accuracy is at 105% what is suppose to be my accuracy as TK Sage.

Relics have never been my strong point
So, with a TK Sage the 2 relics to use may well be:

Arkanian Relic of Serendipitous Assault
&
Arkanian Relic of Elemental Transcendence
