    Best Rune for a LI?

    Can I get some opinions as to the best Captain Rune and why?

    I am currently favoring the Tier 7's for the attack speed reduction as I feel that in a good group I shouldn't be getting hit all too often so the extra defenses aren't necessary but I would like to get others' opinions to help expand my viewpoint!

    Thanks!

    I went with Melee Critical runes on my weapon since I rely pretty heavily on PA critting for RC.

    Runes, not Settings.

    I used to go with the tier 7s too (think I might still have one slotted somewhere) but our DPS sucks enough to warrant going to the tier 9s

    But how does a Tier 9 Rune help our DPS? The only runes are Power/morale bonus and crit defenses. Or are you saying it's so terrible in general that we might as well get defenses?

    Yep!

    In any raid situation I would much rather have aggro of something beating on ME instead of my minstrel/RK. If I have to off tank a brute or something in BG I slap on a shield, combined with the Rune it gives me decent defenses for those tight situations.

    how much defense does the tier 3 scroll give? wondering how much total melee defense a cappy could get with 2 scrolls, relics, and shield

    600

    So 2 800 relics, 1 scroll (you can't put a defence scroll on your weapon...) for 600. No light shield has melee defence on it, that I know of (if you do use a shield, use the lothlorien). You can also use innocence, zeal, and discipline for the melee defence on those three.

    I'm stacking melee defense from 2 relics, the scroll, the miniature brass anvil, and innocence. I'm at a touch over 2500 unbuffed, so a scroll of warding puts me over the top for -15% incoming melee damage.

    I have found that it makes a huge difference for soloing, and the healers can actually keep me alive when I draw aggro from Durchest.
