Destruction Warlock Artifact Challenge Guide
Destruction Warlock Challenge Appearance
In this section I will go over the strategy for the Destruction Warlock Challenge Appearance!
The artifact appearance is a unique reward from completing a challenging solo scenario,
, that can only be entered while the Mage Tower building is active on the Broken Shore. It rewards a unique artifact appearance.

Below, you will find some recommended items/talents you should have before attempting the scenario. These are just a guideline. You can do the scenario without some of these items but you may run into a bit more trouble than others. You will need to collect a good amount of
s. Each attempt, after the first, at this challenge requires 100
. You can certainly finish the scenario without all these preparations, but it will make it easier. Be prepared for it to take a few attempts, regardless of gear and preparation, you need to execute this encounter nearly flawlessly. Don't get discouraged!
This scenario is more a mechanics check than a dps check. It is simply about interrupting, positioning and situational awareness.. This challenge has been completed by Warlocks as low as 880 item level. However at this stage in legion i would recommend having at least 915 item level and 66 traits. Any set bonuses you have will be helpful.
However, some legendary items are certainly going to help you.

Aside from the aforementioned legendary items, any DPS legendaries you have will be good for this encounter.
I'd like to talk a bit about my recommendations for this encounter.

For this tier,

is recommended just as an all around solid option.
is a viable option You want your off-target to be as low as possible when transitioning into the last phase, and having this talent will allow you to achieve that. However due to gear levels you may find that you transition far faster, and as such the off target will be taking significantly reduced damage. With enough gear you can easily burn through Stage two from full health not needing to use
