1. Optimization between Light/Shadow Tier 2 and Relic Tier 3 Choices

Netherlight Crucible

Optimizing the Netherlight Crucible for Arms is about carefully finding the balance between your tier 2 Light/Shadow powers and the tier 3 Relic traits that are presented to you on the tree. Your path will be specific to you, so there is no universal rule on teh path to take, but rather the best combination of high value options that you can get from the tree.

For each of the Tier 2 and Tier 3 options on the Crucible then, I have added a value next to each choice that has been calculated through SimulationCraft, based on the equivalent Item Level value each trait is. To work out your best choice with the options, simply take the values of the Tier 2 and tier 3 options you use, combine them and select the highest possible combination.

2. Tier 2 Priorities

The Light/Shadow traits on Tier 2 have a lot of high value options in the Crucible. Due to how even most of the effects are, there are only a small number of weak options that are listed below that you should avoid, otherwise most other choices remain equal:

2.1. Best

2.2. Weak

Note that anything with defensive added next to it has additional benefit from through the defensive bonuses they also grant. This has no value for dealing damage, but some players may want to focus on this depending on the content they participate in.

3. Tier 3 Priorities

Ideally, you should attempt to take the best Tier 2 trait to lead to the highest value Tier 3 trait. However, if you find that the Tier 2 option would outvalue any of the Tier 3 options available to you, then deciding instead based on the Light/Shadow choice is optimal. Note that these values are much more specific than those on the Relic page, as they have been done at a much more specific gear level to allow for more focus. Most importantly, bear in mind that these choices have been generated with a Tier 21 profile that have talents to accompany it, so if you do not have access to that, some choices ( Icon Many Will Fall in particular) will lose value quickly:

  1.  Icon Many Will Fall (with Fervor of Battle Icon Fervor of Battle) - 3/AoE focused - 7
  2.  Icon Precise Strikes 2.6
  3. Storm of Swords Icon Storm of Swords 0/AoE focused - 3
  4.  Icon Exploit the Weakness - 1.2
  5.  Icon Deathblow - 1
  6.  Icon One Against Many - 0/AoE focused - 6
  7.  Icon Crushing Blows - 0
  8.  Icon Unending Rage - 0

The traits not listed here ( Icon Tactical Advance and  Icon Touch of Zakajz) are very low value traits that are defensively oriented and provide little to no benefit, and should be avoided wherever possible.
