1. Artifact Progression

Artifact Progression

1.1. Early Point Investment

Artifact Progression - Early Point Investment

After acquiring the initial point in  Icon Cursed Edges, swing up through  Icon Fate's Thirst and into  Icon Fatebringer and  Icon Ghostly Shell. Grab your first Golden Trait,  Icon Greed, which is a noticeably boost to both your single and multitarget. Overall this will give the most benefit by a landslide and is huge for early combat power in dungeons and raids.

1.2. Second Golden Trait

Before acquiring your second Golden Trait, you will want to acquire  Icon Hidden Blade,  Icon Blade Dancer, and  Icon Fortune Strikes. This results in a lot of extra resource generation and conservation, which is very important to your overall damage.

Artifact Progression - Second Golden Trait

On the top side of the tree, go through  Icon Gunslinger to  Icon Deception, which adds bolsters your Sprint Icon Sprint with some defensive utility.  Icon Fortune's Strike is a great passive boost and leads into your second Golden Trait,  Icon Blunderbuss.

1.3. Final Point Investment

Artifact Progression - Final Point Investement

 Icon Black Powder leads into your final Golden Trait,  Icon Blurred Time, which is a small boost but a nice way to round out the tree. Finally, snag  Icon Blademaster to add some DPS utility to your Riposte Icon Riposte.  Icon Fortune's Boon should be your culminating points to complete your Dreadblades.

After your Dreadblades are fully fleshed out, you can safely start investing Artifact Power in  Icon Cursed Steel, or focus on one of the other specs.

2. Relic Choice

  1. Keep an eye out for increased Run Through Icon Run Through damage via  Icon Fate's Thirst. This trait is worth significantly more than any other trait for relics (about 40 relic item levels).
  2. Reduced energy cost on finishers from  Icon Fatebringer is extremely valuable as well (about 35 relic item levels).
  3.  Icon Fortune Strikes additional energy generation is a large DPS boon (about 20 relic item levels).
  4. Increased damage from Main Gauche Icon Main Gauche via  Icon Fortune's Strike is also very valuable (about 15 relic item levels).
  5. Any other traits that increase or conserve resource generation are useful.
  6.  Icon Gunslinger increasing Pistol Shot critical chance.
  7. Between the Eyes Icon Between the Eyes damage from  Icon Black Powder.
  8. Any other relic.
