Which Relic to buy first?

Hi, I have at last got enough basic coms to buy my first lvl 55 relic. I've noticed a lot of advice pointing to the 2 proc ones. What I would like to know is which of them provides me with the most benefit, the defence or absorption one? I am a Pt by way if that effects the answer. Thankyou for any/all advice

You cannot get Fortunate Redoubt (def proc) from the Basic Vendor, only from TFB or by finishing Fortress for the first time. It'll have to be Shield Amplification (abs proc).

If you don't already have the arkanian relics a good alternative (if you can't find spots in ops due to gear/exp) is to get the equivalent PVP relics such as the conqueror ones. They're only 700 or so WZ commendations each. Hell if you're a bit more motivated, you could even go for the PVP "Oriconian" equivalents for 1250 ranked comms + exchange of conq relic.

Do some PVP and get the pvp ones also, easy to pick up and will suffice until you get better.
