1. Artifact Progression — First 35 Points

Artifact Progression

1.1. Early Point Investment

After acquiring the initial point in  Icon Cursed Edges, swing up through  Icon Fate's Thirst and into  Icon Fatebringer and  Icon Ghostly Shell. Grab your first Golden Trait,  Icon Greed, which is a noticeably boost to both your single and multitarget. Overall this will give the most benefit by a landslide and is huge for early combat power in dungeons and raids.

1.2. Second Golden Trait

Before acquiring your second Golden Trait, you will want to acquire  Icon Hidden Blade,  Icon Blade Dancer, and  Icon Fortune Strikes. This results in a lot of extra resource generation and conservation, which is very important to your overall damage.

On the top side of the tree, go through  Icon Gunslinger to  Icon Deception, which adds bolsters your Sprint Icon Sprint with some defensive utility.  Icon Fortune's Strike is a great passive boost and leads into your second Golden Trait,  Icon Blunderbuss.

1.3. Final Point Investment

 Icon Black Powder leads into your final Golden Trait,  Icon Blurred Time, which is a small boost but a nice way to round out the tree. Finally, snag  Icon Blademaster to add some DPS utility to your Riposte Icon Riposte.  Icon Fortune's Boon should be your culminating points to complete your Dreadblades.

After your Dreadblades are fully fleshed out, you can safely start investing Artifact Power in  Icon Cursed Steel, or focus on one of the other specs.

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. Bravado of the Uncrowned Icon Bravado of the Uncrowned
  2. Sabermetrics Icon Sabermetrics
  3. Dreadblade's Vigor Icon Dreadblade's Vigor
  4. Loaded Dice Icon Loaded Dice
  5. Fourth rank of  Icon Fate's Thirst
  6. Fourth rank of  Icon Fatebringer
  7. Fourth rank of  Icon Fortune Strikes
  8. Fourth rank of  Icon Fortune's Strike
  9. Fourth rank of  Icon Blade Dancer
  10. Fourth rank of  Icon Gunslinger
  11. Fourth rank of  Icon Black Powder
  12. Fourth rank of  Icon Fortune's Boon
  13. Fourth rank of  Icon Ghostly Shell
  14. Concordance of the Legionfall Icon Concordance of the Legionfall

3. Relic Choice

  1.  Icon Fate's Thirst
  2.  Icon Fortune's Boon
  3.  Icon Fortune Strikes
  4.  Icon Fatebringer
  5.  Icon Black Powder (if using Greenskin's Waterlogged Wristcuffs Icon Greenskin's Waterlogged Wristcuffs)
  6.  Icon Fortune's Strike
  7.  Icon Blade Dancer
  8.  Icon Gunslinger

 Icon Blade Dancer is more valuable if you play Outlaw exclusively in Mythic+ dungeons, or only on cleave fights.
