1. General Optimization for Beast Mastery Hunter

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. How much you value the AoE traits will depend a lot on your playstyle - whether you are Focusing on Mythic+ or raids and so on.

8. ChangeLog

  • 07 Feb. 2018: Added Dire Frenzy trait values.
  • 07 Jan. 2018: Added Artifact/NLC Trait Values for Aspect of the Beast.
  • 05 Jan. 2018: Demoted Torment of the Weak's value by 1 weapon item level, due to how it loses significant value when swapping targets that other single-target traits do not suffer from.
  • 31 Dec. 2017: Updated trait values to be based on a Killer Cobra-based build (instead of AoTB), as this more accurately reflects what most people are playing after looking at talent usage data now that the tier is well underway.
  • 05 Dec. 2017: Updated all trait values.
  • 02 Dec. 2017: Nerfed AoE trait values (divide by target count 3 rather than 2).
  • 09 Oct. 2017: Added CrucibleWeight Addon import strings for Netherlight Crucible Trait values.
  • 30 Sep. 2017: Updated Dark Sorrows trait value to reflect its 40% buff.
  • 14 Sep. 2017: Updated tier 3 trait values.
  • 13 Sep. 2017: Updated all trait values to be based on weapon item level, rather than DPS% values.
