~Can I have both Olympian Relic and Relic item in my character?
-No.You can only have either Olypian Relic or Relic item in your character.
~What's the max attack speed in TBR and how to calculate it?
-Each character in TBR will reach their maximum attack speed when their agi is reach 400(with both base agi and the bonus from item.)

-For the calculation.please look at below:
Every class has his own basic attack speed. Here are three examples:
Assassin => 1.6
Barbarian => 2.0
Temple Guardian => 2.25
1 Agility or 1% IAS from item = 0.01 Bonus attacks in the basic attack speed
Temple Guardian (2.25) with 235 Agility = 1.00 + 2.35 Bonus attacks in 2.25 seconds.
Assassin (1.6) with 275 Agility = 1.00 + 2.75 Bonus attacks in 1.6 seconds.
Barbarian (2.0) with 325 Agility = 1.00 + 3.25 Bonus attacks in 2.0 seconds.
(1.00 means one attack, not one hundred)
