    Foe enhancement, we don't have any relics with BiS traits from Nighthold. Our current BiS trait relics from raids are Fragment of Eternal Spite - Fire (Xavius), Uplifting Emerald - Storm (Cenarius), and Unforged Titansteel - Iron (Odyn).

    Havoc Demon Hunter:

    Fel Relic - Writ of Subjugation (Tichondrius)
    Shadow Relic - Despoiled Dragonscale (Nythendra)

    Both of the above relics are related to the current BiS critical chaos trait (~15 ilvl). However, once Convergence of Fates and/or Delusions of Grandeur is taken into account, Unleashed Demons relics will most likely become the BiS (~40 ilvl if it allows an extra Meta) but this is understandably harder to calculate.

    Fel and Shadow Unleashed Demon relics drop from Nighthold bosses

    Fel Relic - Felstained Jawbone Fragments (Gul'dan)
    Shadow Relic - Breath of Dusk (High Botanist Tel'am)

    Also, since the Metamorphosis relics gives 15/15/10 reduction to Meta CD, it is very likely you won't want to get a 3rd Unleashed Demon relic and instead we will use Writ of Subjugation from Tichondrius as 2nd Fel Relic.

    IN MY OPINION

    Frost Mage: Heart of Frost x2, Manatoxin Gland

  8. #8
    BM hunter currently: Infused Chitin Fragment, tempest of the heavens and probably Manatoxin Gland (unless u can get silly high from m+/xavius)

    This is only true if you get a high titanforged version of the Xavius relic. An 905 Exothermic Core will beat an 880 AW relic.

    Affliction: Shadow from botanist.
    The blood relics don't have the bis trait, but it drops from Helya.

    Your list is kinda silly though because of the ilevel gradient.

    Windwalker monks need 3 relics with the "fists of the wind" trait, as it can make up for up to ~15 weapon ilvl over other traits. Haven't looked which traits the NH relics inherit, so I just went ahead and named the trait we want.

    Shadow priests will want the traits for increasing all damage by 1% or the one increasing VT damage (I'm no longer up to date with shadow since I quitted that class in 7.1 after 6+ years of maining it).

    I don't play a WW monk, but a certain trait being worth 15 actual weapon ilvls is very doubtful. Surely you mean 15 ilvls on the actual relic?

    No its 15 ilvls on the weapon.
    Rogues would like a word with you, their relics was worth 72 ilvls on weapon at one point.

    For many the traits are worth much more than ilvls.

    You say it's silly. I say it's people who don't actually read what the topic says where it clearly says "Best in slot relics FROM NIGHTHOLD" aka the best possible each specc can get from inside that instance

    No, weapon ilvl. That's if it's compared to any non-damage-increasing trait. Against other damage increasing traits that gap can be as low as 3 weapon ilvl.

    While I agree that Elemental relic traits are ridiculous in NH, I'd say that the nature damage one became useful after the 9% buff to LB. Also, ilvl is still king since you can't really gear Elemental for bis traits since all talent combinations need slightly different traits.
