1. General Optimization Advice for Subtlety Rogue

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 which leads to your best trait. If the 2 available paths are equal or very close in ranking it is usually best to adhere to the fork that leads to the highest value Tier 3 trait, as this often results in the largest DPS increase. If the best available Tier 3 trait is in the middle, you should always default to the highest ranked Tier 2 upgrade, as you are able to reach it from either path.
