1. General Optimization Advice for Windwalker Monks

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 the following suggestions.

When deciding which path to take, compare the sum of the item level values of the tier 2 traits and the relics (listed in the sections below) to determine which the optimal path is.

2. Tier 2 Upgrade Priority for Windwalker Monks

  1. Murderous Intent Icon Murderous Intent (+12 item levels);
  2. Master of Shadows Icon Master of Shadows and Shocklight Icon Shocklight (+11 item levels);
  3. Torment the Weak Icon Torment the Weak, Infusion of Light Icon Infusion of Light, Secure in the Light Icon Secure in the Light, and Shadowbind Icon Shadowbind (+10 item levels);
  4. Chaotic Darkness Icon Chaotic Darkness and Light Speed Icon Light Speed (+9 item levels);
  5. Dark Sorrows Icon Dark Sorrows (+5 item levels);
