The images below show the best path for putting points into your artifact weapon. If you are looking for relic comparisons, check the bottom of this page.

Artifact trait path

You’ll get all your traits within the first AP token or two. Don’t worry about what traits you select.


Relic priorities differ from build to build and depending on the fight style. All simulations were done with 75 traits (this is the standard case for SimulationCraft T21M profiles). The described traits show the DPS increase with one additional point in that trait. See the post on our blog about the Netherlight Crucible for more information.
