1. Artifact Progression — First 35 Points

Artifact Progression

This tree is highly customizable and this is only one interpretation of a raid oriented build. There are many right answers to this question so if you feel you need more utility or mobility early, feel free to focus on the acquisition of those points at any time.

  1.  Icon Exploding Keg
  2.  Icon Full Keg
  3.  Icon Potent Kick
  4.  Icon Hot Blooded
  5.  Icon Face Palm
  6.  Icon Obstinate Determination
  7.  Icon Dark Side of the Moon
  8.  Icon Smashed
  9.  Icon Obsidian Fists
  10.  Icon Overflow
  11.  Icon Brew-Stache
  12.  Icon Dragonfire Brew
  13.  Icon Staggering Around
  14.  Icon Fortification
  15.  Icon Swift as a Coursing River
  16.  Icon Gifted Student
  17.  Icon Healthy Appetite

2. Patch 7.2: 35+ Trait Path

Artifact Progression Above Level 35

Patch 7.2 has replaced the 35-54 Paragon system with several additional new traits becoming available upon acquisition of the 35th point. All of the previous Relic traits will also unlock a 4th rank, along with a new Paragon system becoming available after all traits have been filled (via Concordance of the Legionfall Icon Concordance of the Legionfall) which all additional Artifact Power will be spent on.

Detailed below is our suggested maxing order after 35 traits:

  1. Endurance of the Broken Temple Icon Endurance of the Broken Temple
  2. Draught of Darkness Icon Draught of Darkness
  3. Stave Off Icon Stave Off
  4. Quick Sip Icon Quick Sip
  5. Fourth rank of  Icon Face Palm
  6. Fourth rank of  Icon Hot Blooded
  7. Fourth rank of  Icon Potent Kick
  8. Fourth rank of  Icon Overflow
  9. Fourth rank of  Icon Staggering Around
  10. Fourth rank of  Icon Dark Side of the Moon
  11. Fourth rank of  Icon Obsidian Fists
  12. Fourth rank of  Icon Gifted Student
  13. Fourth rank of  Icon Healthy Appetite
  14. Concordance of the Legionfall Icon Concordance of the Legionfall

3. Relic Choice

  1.  Icon Face Palm
  2.  Icon Hot Blooded
  3.  Icon Potent Kick

It is ideal to prioritize relics from the "power three";  Icon Face Palm,  Icon Hot Blooded, and  Icon Potent Kick. We advise sticking to these traits regardless of the item level of other relics, as they provide the most potent bonuses by far for both offense and survivability.
