I still remember the exultation of getting my first relic (we druids called them “idols” back then) when I took my druid to Hellfire Peninsula.  It was for a completely different spec and did me no good whatsoever, but after more than fifty levels, THAT SLOT WAS NO LONGER EMPTY!  Still, I’m honestly not that broken up about relics going away in Mists of Pandaria.  It used to be they did nifty things to your spells (relics were glyphs before glyphs were glyphs), but it was a pain trying to track down the right one for your spec, and if you weren’t one of the classes that used them it was so aggravating to see bosses drop loot that only one spec of one class could use.  (Yes, holy paladins, I see you weeping in the corner.  I’m so sorry.)  Now, in Cataclysm, they’re just stat sticks.  We won’t be losing much when they go.

And for the record: no, I do not condone mailing skunks to Blizzard headquarters.  That’s a terrible thing to do to an innocent skunk.


  1. Dude! that was such hipster commentary. “I used Relics back when they were Idols. You probably wouldn’t understand. I’ll make it simple for you, they were glyphs before everyone had glyphs. Now that everyone is using them, glyphs are too main stream, so I’m not interested in idols, or relics. I also leave my glyph slots empty to be ironic.”

    • A hipster? Me? Naw, I’m no hipster. Hipsters are way too mainstream. I’m a snob. You’ve probably never heard of them…
