Netherlight Crucible introduced in Patch 7.3 is a new way to customize relics. It has three tiers of traits and slots are gated behind your Artifact Level.

Since last we previewed the Netherlight Crucible a lot of things have changed. This is an extended preview of the new feature as of Patch 7.3 Build 24700.

Unlocking Netherlight Crucible

To unlock the Netherlight CrucibleNetherlight Crucible, you need to finish all quests in Krokuun and Mac'Aree.

Legendary Items

Patch 7.3 adds the following Legendary item Insignia of the Grand ArmyInsignia of the Grand Army that increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers granted by the Netherlight Crucible by 50% (Insignia of the Grand ArmyInsignia of the Grand Army). It's rewarded from the Antorus raid quest The Death of a Titan.

Relic Slot Levels

There are 3 relic slot levels gated behind Artifact Level. At Artifact level 56, I was able to unlock Tier 1 for the first two relic slots. Tier 1 for the third relic slot is still locked.

  • Relic slot 1 upgrades to level 2 (Tier 2) at Artifact Level 61
  • Relic slot 2 upgrades to level 2 (Tier 2) at Artifact Level 64
  • Relic slot 3 upgrades to level 2 (Tier 2) at Artifact Level 67 (confirmation needed)

Netherlight Crucible Relic Preview

The talent tree for a relic can be previewed, before you attach the relic to your Artifact, but previewing a relic makes it soulbound.

Netherlight Crucible Traits

Netherlight Crucible has three tiers. Tier 1 is shared for all relics and Tier 2 & 3 are random.

Tier 1 (Single Trait)

Netherlight FortificationNetherlight Fortification is the only ability available in this tier, shared across all relics. It is a passive that increases the item level of your artifact by 5, so the first tier will increase your artifact level by up to 15 (3 relic slots).

Tier 2 (Two Traits [A, B])

The second tier contains two randomly chosen passives. One light & one shadow power. 

Based on datamining we found the following passives for Netherlight Crucible's Tier 2.

Please note that the system is still in testing and many of the spells listed here may be removed, replaced or modified at any time during 7.3 testing.

The following paths are available for all tiers.

  • Tier 1 > Tier 2 (A) > either Tier 3 (A) or Tier 3 (B)

Is there any point in "saving" a good relic?

I was lucky enough to get a 940 BIS relic yesterday, but now I am not sure if I should equip it. Can I still use the talent tree from the crucible on relics I allready equipped?

The three circles at the top are your equipped relics. The square is for ones from inventory. You can equip it.

      Transmog collectors and the community are not particularly happy with personal loot rules used in leveling dungeons since Patch 7.3.5 launch. Blizzard will be reverting the change back in Battle for Azeroth by activating something called "legacy loot mode".
      How Will Legacy Loot Mode Work?
      The loot mode will activate automatically upon entering a dungeon or raid that's trivial for you (your character is 10+ levels higher than the dungeon or raid's intended level). The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party or raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, regardless of your set Loot Specialization. Loot will be tradable and split among members of your party or raid. You can learn more about transmog in our section!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Since the Patch 7.3.5 change to use personal loot rules in leveling dungeons, we’ve heard a lot of feedback from Transmog hunters concerned about how this has affected the ability to collect appearances from older content. We hear you, and agree it’s a problem, so we’ve been working on a more robust solution for Battle for Azeroth. Once these updates are implemented, entering a dungeon or raid that is trivial for you (i.e.: your character is 10 or more levels higher than the dungeon or raid’s intended level) will activate a “legacy loot mode.” That loot mode will work like this:
      The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party. So if you’re in a 5-player dungeon, you’ll get 5 players’ worth of loot. For raids with a flexible raid size (such as Raid Finder), this will act as though there were 20 players in the raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, not just the ones that are designated for your spec. If you have multiple players in the group, the loot will be split among those players, but be tradeable. For example, if you’re clearing with one other player and kill a boss that should drop 4 items, you’ll each be able to pick up two items and trade them between each other if you like. While the personal loot change was a key part of what allowed us to expand leveling dungeons to encompass a wider range of levels, and we’re happy with it in that environment, we recognize that it’s not a great experience for those who enjoy clearing older content for transmog, and hope that these changes will make that more enjoyable once they’re complete. 
      Thanks again for all of the feedback!

      Today we get some Argus mission cost tweaks, Demonic Gateway fixes, a huge timewalking Pit of Saron nerf, and an improvement for the legendary tokens, generating items for other classes if you have all legendaries for your class.
      February 20 (source)
      Classes
      Warlock Fixed a bug that allowed Demonic Gateways to be placed in unintended spots. Class Halls
      Argus missions that award Blood of Sargeras now cost 600 more Order Hall Resources. This will not be correctly reflected in the Legion Companion App until its next version update. Developers’ notes: Completing these missions with bonus rewards previously returned more Order Hall Resources than they cost. Rather than reduce their yield, we’ve increased the cost of the missions so that players with ample Order Hall Resources can convert them to tradeskill materials. Dungeons and Raids
      Pit of Saron The health of most enemies in Pit of Saron has been reduced by 50% in Timewalking. Items
      If you have all Legion Legendary items for your class, consuming a class-specific item that generates a Legion Legendary item will now always generate a token for another class. Heritage of the Ren'dorei now contains the Ren'dorei Cloak. NPCs
      Hatecoil Spitespeaker should no longer instantly respawn. Princess Poobah should no longer unexpectedly stop offering quests. Quests
      "The Emerald Dreamcatcher" is no longer weekly. The starting location for "Teldrassil: The Burden of the Kaldorei" should now correctly be displayed on the map. Mature Silkwing again have a chance to softly drop Iridescent Wings for “The Softest Wings”. Previous patch 7.3.5 hotfixes:
