How about a couple more polls...

Poll: Relic Priority
When the overlord or hero's are able to choose which quest they do, which Relic do you pursue?
Keep in mind the balance of the quest.
The Shadow Rune is a gimme because you have to play the quest! :D
1 = Low Priority ; 5 = High Priority
Please pick one priority per Relic!
2. Which Relic is the highest priority for the Overlord?
  1 2 3 4 5
Duskblade
Bones of Woe
Shield of Zorek's Favor
Staff of Shadows
Scorpion's Kiss
12. Which Relic is the highest priority for the Hero's?
  1 2 3 4 5
Dawnblade
Fortuna's Dice
Shield of the Dark God
Staff of Light

They're all good relics in my opinion, and I'd be happy to have any of them. Maybe what is most notable is why some chose the best (5) and the worst(1) for each side. It might get a little muddled for choosing what falls in between, because I think many of them are pretty comparitively useful.

For the OverLord: I think the Scorpion's Kiss is pretty impacting when you can immobilize a hero automatically, and maybe poison them too, per turn. No range required, just line of sight. I think the Staff of Shadows is on the bottom. There is a luck factor involved and it's more situational, but I'd be happy to have it. And, if you chose this quest, the odds favor you to get it in Act 1.

For the Heroes: I think the Staff of Light is conversely the worst relic as well. The Cardinal's Plight is one of the more difficult quests for the heroes, and while it has it's uses, the 1 blue and 1 yellow attack power can make it more readily obsolete than other relics. Once again though, I'd gladly have it in my inventory. It's not a bad item, by any means. I chose the Dawnblade as the top priority, but frankly, in a game where misses can really be a kick in the face, I really like having Fortuna's Dice on a high damage character.

Our team had no healer so staff of light was pretty good addition. Remember you can have 2 weapons and change to staff of light only on turns when you need to heal.

Hehe, I LOVE Staff of Shadows, always pick Cardinal's Plight if given the option. SoS is an extra Dark Fortune each turn almost, assuming you have tossable cards (those Xs do creep up on ya when you don't have DF), but you can also force a hero to reroll some massively lucky roll.

I'm a little surprised to see the Duskblade doing as well as it is. Pierce 5 sounds awesome, but it's hardly any better against unarmored heroes. It's good, but it's not great.
