1. General Optimization Advice

Netherlight Crucible

It is of utmost importance to have  Icon Fiery Demise on every relic, either as the relic itself or as the Tier 3 Netherlight Crucible trait. This is so important that if the Tier 3 trait is Fiery Demise, you can take any path necessary to reach it (even if this means taking a weak Tier 2 trait, although you should of course try to take the best you can).

If  Icon Fiery Demise is not a tier 3 option, then choose the best combination of tier 2 and 3 traits possible from the lists below, taking into account your preferences and your playstyle.
