1. General Optimization

Netherlight Crucible

The only way to know for sure how to best slot out your relics in the Netherlight Crucible is to simulate it using a site like RaidBots, ideally combined with the SimPermut AddOn.

Apart from simming, some basic maths can help you make the best decision.

Below you will find the DPS value of every tier 2 trait, and every tier 3 trait. To find out what your best option is in your relic, simply calculate the following for each option:

Tier 2 Trait Value + Tier 3 Trait Value

Repeat this for your different options. Left Tier 2 + Left/Middle Tier 3, and Right Tier 2 + Right/Middle Tier 3.

Whatever option comes out highest is the one that you should use.
