An Old Relic
My Druid got the third relic for the Artifact Weapon yesterday. Somewhere along the line I had lost track of the Druid Campaign and had to do catch-up which was all time based. It wasn’t until I realized that the reward was the third relic slot that I began paying attention.
The third relic slot is crucial early on.

As you can see, the bump up in stats is pretty big. The jump in Intellect is astounding and I’m glad that I finally did it. My Hunter just dinged 110 this morning and is pointed in many directions but I won’t forget my Hunter Campaign.

Oh! So that’s how you raise your ilvl 🙂 Now I need to hunt for at least any relic for the third slot.

I was surprised too!
I’ve been hanging onto a few extra relics of the appropriate type so that when I finally get my Shaman Campaign finished — it’s been a bit tricksy to find time to go off and do that solo stuff when I want to spend most of my playtime playing together with my husband — I’ll have one on hand for that third socket.
What I’m wondering, though, now that I’m past the thirteenth point and getting new artifact traits has slowed to a molasses-in-January crawl, is if it’s worth putting in a relic that boosts a trait I won’t get to for a long time, at the expense of an active trait that is currently being boosted, just for the overall ilevel upgrade.
Blizzard says to not over-think it. The rule of thumb is that you should use your higher ilevel relic when you find one.
Yep, I saved a relic in anticipation of opening that third slot, it felt good.
