Havoc Demon Hunter Artifact: Netherlight Crucible, Traits, Relics
This section of the Havoc Demon Hunter guide explains the best possible choices for the Netherlight Crucible, important traits and relic bonuses, and how to progress through your artifact weapon Twinblades of the Deceiver.
Rotation & Abilities
Mythic+ & Raid Tips
Equipping the Twinblades of the Deceiver grants you the ability
Fury of the Illidari
, which causes you to throw your Warglaives into a whirlwind of energy, dealing massive damage to all enemies around you over 3 seconds.
Netherlight Crucible / Relic Recommendation
is a new system added in Patch 7.3. The Crucible allows you further empower your Artifact Weapon, by specializing and increasing the power from your relics. With it, each relic receives a small talent tree that you can select new traits from, depending how many traits your weapon have. Do not worry, however, because with the changes to

Master of Shadows
is not listed as its value will vary significantly from situation to situation, but it is a good trait in general.
New traits explanation
isn't the most amazing trait but it is surely not unwanted either. Reducing the cost of Eye Beam is mostly welcome because it allows us to spend more time spamming Chaos Strike and get all the benefits that comes from spamming that spell. Important note is that prior to having 2/4 points into Wide Eyes, Eye Beam is generally not worth casting on pure single target scenarios. Once you have 2/4 points in the trait however Eye Beam becomes worth to use on single target situations again. This doesn't mean that you should stop holding Eye Beam for AoE in the near future.
is a pretty straight forward trait, when Blade Dance crits instead of doing 100% more damage it does 120% more damage. The trait alone is a mediocre damage increase but when paired with First Blood we start getting somewhere really interesting.
is where all the fun begins! A 10% chance for Chaos Strike and Annihilation to slash an additional time, this is amazing! But wait, their's more! The extra slash is actually a free and instant
. The word
is really important here because it means that the Onslaught can trigger everything that a normal Chaos Strike cast does... Inner Demons, Demonic Appetite, a Onslaught critical strike will refund 20 fury and it can also proc itself!
Recommended Artifact trait path
For a bit more math behind the reason why we use this path you can refer to
that lists the DPS gain provided by each 7.2 traits as well as the gain from 3/4 to 4/4 from the 7.0 traits
7.1 Recommended Artifact Path
We start by going out of our way to pick up Sharpened Glaives and Balanced Blades as they are very strong traits that are especially relevant for leveling. After that, Rage of the Illidari is the strongest major trait so we head for it first. We pick up Unleashed Demons (another great trait) and Demon Speed on the way.
After that, we head for Anguish of the Deceiver through Critical Chaos (best trait) and Chaos Vision. At this point we've picked up almost all of the damage traits in the artifact tree.
We head for Inner Demons next, being a little better value on Demon Rage for single target (and much better on multi). The traits on the way there are not great so we just take the shortest path.
Grab the last remaining damage traits.
And finally, we grab Underwhelming Power to complete the artifact.
