Vengeance Demon Hunter Artifact Traits and Relics
This section of the Vengeance Demon Hunter guide covers everything your Artifact, the Aldrachi Warblades; it explains how to progress through your artifact weapon, important traits, and relic bonuses to look for.
Rotation & Abilities
Equipping the Aldrachi Warblades grants you the ability
, which causes you to carve into the soul of your target, dealing fire damage and immediately shattering Lesser Soul Fragments from your target and more fragments over time.
(Note: ilvl will be better except when this trait is involved.)
While this is used primarily for dps, it is the only "good" trait that we can have relics for unfortunately.
The following are only for same ilvl relics
Recommended Build Path
Fueled by Pain
Charred Warblades from Fueled by Pain
Devour Souls to Honed Warblades
Note: You can do these in any order after Fiery Demise, as from 4+ as the traits are all fairly close together. Some are more for dps and others more survivability, so it's truly up to you how you want to build it. You won't see any big changes regardless of how you build the rest of the path. This build gives a mix of survivability and dps.
