1. General Optimization Advice

Netherlight Crucible

Optimizing through the Netherlight Crucible is straightforward; you are offered 2 initial paths, Shadow and Holy, and you should determine your path contingent on the following suggestions.

2. Path Choices

The Tier 2 Netherlight Crucible traits are all very strong, easily more valuable than the bonus Tier 3 trait provided by a given relic. The strongest trait, defensively, is Master of Shadows Icon Master of Shadows in current content, as the hardest-hitting abilities in Tomb of Sargeras are all reduced by Avoidance.

Very close behind it are Shadowbind Icon Shadowbind and Chaotic Darkness Icon Chaotic Darkness. Other acceptable Tier 2 traits include Murderous Intent Icon Murderous Intent, Torment the Weak Icon Torment the Weak, Light Speed Icon Light Speed, and Refractive Shell Icon Refractive Shell.

As for Tier 3 traits, continue to prioritise Carrion Feast Icon Carrion Feast,  Icon Dance of Darkness, and  Icon Veinrender, but do not prioritise getting optimal artifact traits over getting optimal Netherlight Crucible Tier 2 traits.
