  15.  Icon Painbringer
  16.  Icon Honed Warblades

2. Relic Choice

When choosing which relics to use, always take the one that grants you the highest item level, regardless of the benefit it offers. When having to choose between relics that grant the same item level, choose based on the following trait enhancement priorities, depending on whether you are interested in maximising survivability or DPS.

2.1. Survivability

  1.  Icon Devour Souls
  2.  Icon Embrace the Pain
  3.  Icon Aldrachi Design
  4.  Icon Will of the Illidari

2.2. DPS

For DPS, the best trait depends on what type of DPS you are interested in. The best overall DPS (single target and AoE) trait to buff is  Icon Aura of Pain.  Icon Honed Warblades is a good choice for only single target, while  Icon Fiery Demise is best for single target burst.
