CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These were the new community created relics added with Update 3. With Update 7 these are now able to be melded in-game. These items don’t go on sale very often from what we’ve seen!


Milestone Skills

Set multiple instant-travel destinations! Unlock an additional destination skill to bind at Milestones. 5 additions available! Milestones, or "homes", are locations that you can instantly travel to from anywhere in the world. Players can bind to one destination at a time for free, and purchasing additional Milestone Skills allows players to access more than one destination at a moment’s notice!

Store Location: Travel & Housing → Maps & Skills → Milestone Skills
Levels: All
350
263

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: I have not purchased these and really haven’t seen a need to.  I can see how they would be desirable and do not fault anyone for buying them. Typically I hear that folks like to have at least two. One for where they are questing and one for where they craft.


Skill Deed Boosts

Lesser Skill Deed Boosts double the rate of progress of Class Skill Deeds for 30 minutes; Greater Skill Deed Boosts double the rate of progress of Class Skill Deeds for 60 minutes. Every skill use that counts towards a skill deed will be counted twice. Skill Deed Boosts also unlock the daily skill deed limit for the length of the effect. Single and 5-stacks available!

Store Location: Buffs & Boosts → Advancement → Deed
Levels: All
50-450
35-315

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These certainly can be nice boost especially for dratted skill ups such as rez deeds. Also can be handy for skills that don’t require you to be in combat so you can do whatever you please in game and keep smacking those skills for skill-ups during the time limit. For the most part though, you’ll able to earn these deeds as you play along and are not really needing any assistance from a boost.

    The ‘store relics’ are meldable since update 7 and do not require TP.

    I also saw a travelers-pack or something to that effect. It has all milestoneskills + the hurried traveler skill for a whopping 1313 TP.

    Honestly I do recommend the legendary item slots – being able to level more LIs means more to deconstruct. :)

      It depends, as the scaling you get the same amount of total ixp for 6, 7 or 8 slots, unlike slots 1-6 where adding an extra LI will get you more iXP total at the expense of some ixp per LI, so the 7th and 8th slots won’t improve your deconstruction rate.

      So its only useful if you have weapons which are at max level, and hence take a slot but don’t count towards the Ixp calculation. However for me this was only a little while after I hit 75, at which point my ixp rate from monsters and quests drops like a stone, as Runes and bundled Relics from instances contribute a much higher proportion. At which point I (personally) don’t think its worth it.

      I do buy a slot on my slot intensive characters (So my Captain has a Tanking weapon + emblem, a DPS weapon, a buffing weapon, a healing weapon & emblem, and a switch emblem, so I need the slots just to have all that…).

    I’d give the LI slots a plus as well, but not before 53 as before then you’re relying on drops or the AH whereas after 53 you can start to buy with rusted dwarf tools or the khuzdul tablets.

    Never found myself using or needing more than 2 milestones, but very handy before you can access the more centralised crafting areas with guild reps. Use one for craft guild hub and the other for the questing hub, with adjustments once you unlock racial or rep based travel skills.

    I totally forget you can add to the milestones, its so easy to just park the one milestone at a travel hub like MD or Bree and then swift travel where you want. I bought the LI upgrades a long time ago, I wont do it again but its nice having all slots churning at the same time.

    As for the relics, is it easy to meld specific ones? I tend to hit and miss with that in the past so a sure fire relic wouldnt be a bad thing for amateur melders like me. still… its expensive
