You can spend Artifact Power on unlocking traits for your Artifact Weapon. There is a starting trait marked by a gold circle, minor traits marked as smaller circles, and major traits marked by gold dragon circles.
You can unlock your traits in a set order, which we have replicated on our calculator. You cannot start unlocking traits anywhere on the weapon UI in-game. You can eventually unlock every single trait, which our calculator's behavior reflects.
As you select your traits on our calculator, a summary of your traits and ranks will appear underneath the calculator for easy reference.
Our calculator also supports Artifact Relics. Every weapon can have two types of relics socketed, and relics can be acquired from most content in Legion--boss drops, quest rewards, etc.
Relics increase your weapon's item level and also unlock
for minor traits.
These relics only affect
--you cannot apply extra ranks onto any trait on your weapon.

Relics can be socketed on the calculator by clicking on the relic graphics at the top of the calculator and selecting the relics from the drop-down menu. Traits that are affected by a relic will light up with a white border when that relic is selected. Once a relic is chosen, you can then add additional ranks to that particular trait.
Not every weapon has relic data yet, below are the weapons that do:
Frost Death Knight: Blades of the Fallen Prince
Guardian Druid: Claws of Ursoc
Balance Druid: Scythe of Elune
Arcane Mage: Aluneth, Greatstaff of the Magna
Fire Mage: Felo'melorn

Retribution Paladin: Ashbringer
Subtlety Rogue: Fangs of the Devourer
Affliction Warlock: Ulthalesh, the Deadwind Harvester
Destruction Warlock: Scepter of Sargeras
Fury Warrior: Warswords of the Valajar
Protection Warrior: Scale of the Earth-Warder

New Site Feature: Class Guides Revamp, Spectral Tiger Giveaway
2015/07/02 at 4:50 PM
Last year we launched class guides on Wowhead, written by members of the WoW community. This got a great response and we continued to update them each patch, but we are always looking to improve upon new features. Today, we are officially launching the revamped class guides - that means more information, more detail, and easier-to-read guides. We are very excited about the work that has gone into these, and we're excited to share them with you! The authors put a great deal of work into these guides, and it shows.
Click Here to Browse Our New Classes Section
Here are some changes and improvements we've made to the new class guides:
We've split out the massive DPS guides into guides for each spec for better readability--you can still find guides for the other specs linked on the right-hand side of the guide page.
Instead of putting all the information on one page, we've broken it up into multiple pages. This gives us more flexibility and space to explain basic concepts like rotations or embed a talent calculator build.
Our Classes Page
has gotten a facelift, with a new layout, more links, and guides that provide an overview for
