I recently came back to the game after a long break and am gearing up my Burglar again.
So I was looking at the relics that are available for the LI's and was kinda surprised that they were so bad.
I'm comparing them to my old LI's which has mostly old relics from Moria and so on. I can't say many of the new ones are any improvement at all. So before I go changing or aquiring relics for my LI's I'd like to hear what you guys run around with.
Be it for max dps, standard raid, solo encounters etc.

I also use mostly ICPR relics, as other stuff can be gotten better elsewhere. I do a lot more DPS not only from my raw DPS, but from having half my power pool when other burgs are auto-attacking on empty.
Just to emphasis the point, the new higher tier relics are not appreciably better (especially not with the new pseudo-uncapped stats), so yeah, look toward the relics with best stats for you/your build.

For dps I love dev-crit magnitude and attack-duration on relics. The dev-crit magnitude is awesome with the unseen set but even with Dinhigil its good combination - my surprise strike hits really hard with that. Attack-duration runes are also very good - they say that Burg doesnt benefit from that as much as Champ does, which is true, but still I can really tell the diferrence when I switch to my tanking or mezzing wep and tools (which doesnt have these runes).
Depending on the relics you have right now. You may want to use the relic removal scroll from the Turbine store (195TPs). As much as I despise this change, my OLD T8/9 relics that several of my toons had are enormously better then half the &&&& you can get now. Just remember on decon = bye bye relics.
The +1200 Tactical is one of the ones I make SURE I save for my tact classes for example. Before you decon that weapon, check what is available (T7 & T8, yes, even some current T7s are better then the T8s). If the relics you have are better or on par, definately retrieve them, will save a lot of grinding and melding.
