    Top Tier Relic setup

    leveling my captain and im gonna be working on outfitting my LIs with relics once i hit cap

    dont really plan on raiding BG or DN, just gonna PVP and 6mans with kin

    what relics (setting/gem/runes) do you max level captains use on your items for max efficieny? i assume ill be HoH most of the time, but may try DPS build in PvP

    what are your recommendations?

    thanks!

    Re: Top Tier Relic setup

    I personally go with the Tier 9 melee crit setting, the Tier 9 Gem with ICPR, Tac Defense, and Incoming Healing, and either the Tier 9 Rune of the Crags or the Tier 7 with attack duration.

    I use double crafted relics for outgoing healing and tactical crit, but if you aren't raiding or grouping as a healer or HoH captain, I'd go with the melee crit/offense crafted relics.

    What I did, and I don't know if it is the best way or not, was to use the 5k ixp runes from the crafting instances to level up a LI and then decon it. I'd also save all the ixp runes that dropped in my travels. Many people recommend using the Esteldin bounty quests to max out a LI, but all the running around and daily wait seems too time intensive. I was running the scholar crafting instances twice a week anyway, so it was no additional work for me. Then, every couple of weeks I'd take my 20 to 30 ixp runes and level up LI's and decon them. I also would do daily quests for IXP with 2 junk LI's slotted and decon them once they broke level 6. I don't have any hard statistics, but level 6 seems to me like it is the relic-return sweetspot for relics vs labor.

    I would say that the Melee offense/Melee crit crafter relics are a better way to go, even in HoH and raiding.

    Consider that captains basically live off crit response and you get PA with +targets and on multiple mobs you are opening up RC left and right.
    Even on single targets you want to maximize your crit as in most cases it will give you more bang for the buck.

    Spend a day farming skirmishes, save up 4k-5k marks, barter for mass T1s, go on a combining spree, repeat (and hope you get lucky for crits on high tiers)
    I'll refer you to this thread: http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?t=331349

    As for the relics, I like the T9 mithril setting of the citadel and T9 rune of the crags on both legendaries. High morale and high crit chance.

    I'm still undecided on the gems. The T9 one with fate and will is good, but so is the one with ICPR and inc. healing. Really depends on whether you'll be standing back healing or taking more damage, or both.

    I like hybrid crafted relics, melee crit on weapon, outgoing healing on emblem. Although I could easily see doubling up on one.

    Re: Top Tier Relic setup

    Between both the two hander and the sigil, I'm using the following relics:
    Mithril Setting of the Citadel x2
    Emerald of the Verdant Glen x2
    Ancient Rune of Thunder x1
    Subtle Rune of the Crags x1
    Symbol of Battle x1
    Symbol of Vigor x1

    It not only makes SfW + MC a good self heal (still need to work on that legacy tho), but also makes me harder to kill.
