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

Netherlight Crucible

Optimizing around the Netherlight Crucible for Havoc is decided based on the current traits that your weapon Relic already has on it. The priority is to aim to get  Icon Unrivaled Strength on all 3 Relics, either through your Tier 3 option at the bottom of the tree, or on the Relic itself. This always takes precedence, and so if you need to unlock this via the crucible, your Tier 2 option will be decided by whichever is the best choice that eventually leads to it.

  • If your relic has  Icon Unrivaled Strength on it, then choose your Tier 2 and Tier 3 options based on the advice in the sections that follow.
  • If your relic does not have  Icon Unrivaled Strength on it, but has it on its Tier 3 line, then select the path that leads to Unrivaled Strength.
  • If your relic does not have  Icon Unrivaled Strength at all, then to optimize it, follow the advice in the sections that follow.

Below, I will be listing the individual values of all of the Crucible traits, so in some fringe cases certain combinations may come out slightly more valuable than this rule, so if you are unsure combine these together to see if you can reach a higher value than focusing on  Icon Unrivaled Strength, but this will be rare.

2. Light/Shadow Tier 2 Options

If your relic does not have  Icon Unrivaled Strength on its third line (Tier 3), then your path is dictated by the best choice of Light/Shadow powers on the Tier 2. These powers are broken down into the brackets below. Powers in the same bracket are roughly equal to each other.

2.1. Best

2.2. Good

2.3. 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 follow the rules relating to  Icon Unrivaled Strength at the top of the page. However, in situations outside of this, the values below show the value of each trait, which when combined with the above tier 2 numbers above will show the overall value of the relic and combination of traits:

  1.  Icon Unrivaled Strength - 4.5
  2.  Icon Wrath and Fury - 2.3
  3.  Icon Raging Berserker - 1.9
  4.  Icon Unstoppable - 0.9
  5.  Icon Deathdealer - 0.6
  6. Pulse of Battle Icon Pulse of Battle - 0.2
  7.  Icon Wild Slashes - 0.1

The traits not listed here ( Icon Bloodcraze,  Icon Battle Scars, and  Icon Uncontrolled Rage) are very low value traits that are either defensively oriented or provide little to no benefit, and should be avoided wherever possible.
