1. General Optimization for Marksmanship 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.

2. Tier 2 — Weapon Item Level Values for Each Marksmanship Hunter Trait

  1. Secure in the Light Icon Secure in the Light: 3
  2. Shocklight Icon Shocklight: 3
  3. Shadowbind Icon Shadowbind: 3
  4. Infusion of Light Icon Infusion of Light: 3
  5. Master of Shadows Icon Master of Shadows: 3
  6. Murderous Intent Icon Murderous Intent: 2.75
  7. Chaotic Darkness Icon Chaotic Darkness: 2.75
  8. Torment the Weak Icon Torment the Weak: 2.75
  9. Light Speed Icon Light Speed: 2
  10. Dark Sorrows Icon Dark Sorrows: 1.5
  11. Refractive Shell Icon Refractive Shell: 0
  12. Light's Embrace Icon Light's Embrace: 0

3. Tier 3 — Weapon Item Level Values for Each Marksmanship Hunter Trait

  1.  Icon Marked for Death: 3
  2. Unerring Arrows Icon Unerring Arrows: 2.75
  3.  Icon Quick Shot: *2.5
  4.  Icon Deadly Aim: 2.5
  5.  Icon Windrunner's Guidance: 0.75
  6.  Icon Precision: 0.75
  7.  Icon Called Shot: 0.1
  8.  Icon Healing Shell: 0
  9.  Icon Survival of the Fittest: 0
  10.  Icon Gust of Wind: 0

*It is very difficult to quantify  Icon Quick Shot, due to its cooldown-reducing nature, it can either grant you an additional usage in the fight, a better usage in the fight (timing-wise), or nothing at all. With the given value we attempt to strike the middle of all these scenarios, but keep in mind that your mileage may vary.
