    Default Infernal Dawn Relics a Slight Upgrade? Why?

    If you have seen all the whining around the forums about how terrible ID gear is and why should we be raiding for such bad gear with little upgrades even for the relics, take a moment to actually think and not just rage.

    Relics are designed with the intent that they are slightly below the level of the next tier of raiding. GSB/ROS relic weapons are slightly worse than HK weapons (non-relic of course). HK relic weapons will be slightly worse than regular weapon drops in ID.

    When it comes to relic armor, HK was the first to introduce it. The relic gear will be slightly worse than non-relic armor drops in Infernal Dawn, and the ID relic gear will be an upgrade from that.

    If you look at the difference between HK gear compared to HK relic gear, you will see that there is not a large upgrade in stats. It is an upgrade, but it is not some 100000% upgrade that most people want to see from getting a better piece of loot. Infernal Dawn will be the same, but this time the hard core raiders are stepping into ID with full HK relic sets, which will be only slightly worse than ID dropped gear. Everything will still be upgrades, but not on a massive scale. This keeps the game's gear and stat curve normal and not all whacky. If you look at Planar Attunement, the stat increases are by +1 every time. This is also showing how they dont want massive stat raising with new gear and tiers of content.

    Itemization is a completely different subject, but the gear dropping in ID and bought with IMAs will be upgrades and will boost your stats. The real stat boosters seem to be the weapons like they always are, not armor. Look for the weapons, not the armor.

    I agree with what you're saying in principle. However, some relics from RoS and GSB are much better than HK weapons. Take Asphodel's Primal Beacon for example. the proc rate on that is so awesome, it beats pretty much everything all the way up to Bane Madness. Trion do need to look at their itemisation. Some pieces are ludicrously op, others just not worthy of the content level at which they drop.

    If you read the forums you would know that the gear is still being tweaked to be better upgrades from HK with out being overpowered. The changes to cleric gear went up today. Instead of complaining come up with constructive feedback and then submit those suggestions to them so they can change it.

    exactly. its still on the PTS and they have a few weeks before it becomes available. There is a lot of time for them to change around how everything works and balance it. "Beta is beta" fits here.
