    Which relics work out better?

    I'm currently using these relics - slotted them back when I imbued:

    https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Rel...ing_of_Endings
    +7.5% Devastate Magnitude
    +1454 Critical Rating
    +182 in-Combat Morale Regen

    https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Rel...m_of_Dexterity
    +28 Agility
    +1244 Critical Rating

    https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Rel...hite_Mountains
    -2.5% Attack Duration
    +646 Physical Mastery Rating
    +646 Tactical Mastery Rating
    +35 Agility

    Looking at the ones I have available to me from https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Qua...oroth_Rewards)

    Settings:
    https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Ite...g_of_Brutality
    +2572 Critical Rating
    +3472 Parry Rating
    +2315 Evade Rating

    or https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Ite...ing_of_Finesse
    +7794 Finesse Rating
    +5787 Evade Rating

    I figure picking which one of those based on which stat I need more - but is that worth the loss of 7.5% devastate magnitude?

    Gems:
    https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Ite...Gem_of_Agility
    +297 Agility
    +6452 Critical Defence

    My current gem gives me 1244 crit - is it worth keeping the old one if I'm not at crit cap?

    Rune:
    Probably the best I have access to is maybe https://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Rel...ne_of_Striking from the Auction House
    +1624 Critical Rating
    +76.8 Base Combat Damage Modifier

    Figure that's better than the -2.5% attack duration, yeah? I'm not sure of the sources of the 2 better ones, but I assume crafting, and I abandoned my crafting in Gondor as it was super unfun to me, heh.

    Thanks for any insight! I figure others have already parsed these things and know which is best, heh.

    That is what I use:
    setting: True Setting of the Three Hunters (since already overcapped crit rating no setting of Endings in my case)
    gem: abyssal gem of Agility (barter in the small camp on the outskirts of the Ruins of Dingarth/Dor Amarth)
    rune: Incomparable Vanguard Rune of Striking

    depending on the gearing on 120 lvl I might change the setting.

    Hi, I would recommend keeping the Westemnet Setting of Endings on both main-hand and bow because the bonus is far too good to give up.

    These are the relics that I use on my main-hand (left) and my bow (right).


    You can get the Abyssal Gem of Agility after you get Kindred standing with Gorgoroth, these are bind on acquire so you need the proper reputation on your hunter if you don't already have. They can be obtained from Conquest of Gorgoroth Rewards Quartermaster in Udun.

    Last Alliance Rune of Force is on your main-hand because the Rune of Striking only affects one LI per class (for hunters it is the legendary bow). This is also available at the same NPC as the Abyssal Gem of Agility.

    You might not be able to get the Grand Abyssal Rune of Striking right away, but the second best alternative is Sealed Incomparable Rune of Striking.


    It gives about +20 to the base combat damage modifier, and you can buy for 500g. I would highly recommend this option if you don't plan to run Abyss of Mordath or if you need a stepping stone until you get your Grand Abyssal Rune.

    If you find yourself needing Critical Rating, just slot Critical Rating essences. The Critical Rating on the relic is a very negligible amount.

    Thanks! That's how I was leaning, but wanted some confirmation. I think those are even the Devices I have slotted, heh.

    I don't really have 500 gold to spare at the moment for the better Striking Rune. I looked last night, and it was actually over 600 gold on my server. The purple version was much more affordable though, so I'll snag it for now, unless I find a deal on the teal version heh.

    Thanks for the tips, Celebreneth, they've helped my hunter build a lot.

    Oh I have loads of hunter tips, I would write a book if I had the time. But for now I just respond to each thread individually.

    Can you tell me if the 7.5% Dev Magnitude is still working? It doesn't seem to have any measurable affect on my stats.
