Recommendations: Priest of Darkness and Tigel (Archive)

This section of the Priest of Darkness specialization guide explains which relic features are the best choices for working with the Tigel of Light of the Void, the new artifact weapon development system added in update 7.3. The author of this guide is djriff, moderator of the HowToPriest resource. If you'd like to learn more about me or my work with the Darkness specialization priest community, visit the H2P resource. As of the last game patch, this is the most up-to-date information.

Light of Void Light Tigel Overview

The Light of the Void Tigel is a new system added in update 7.3. The tigel allows you to further enhance your artifact by increasing the power of relics. With this system, each relic gets a small talent tree where you can choose new features depending on how many features your artifact already has. However, you don't have to worry because with the changes made to the artifact knowledge system, it won't take long to unlock the full potential of the crucible. Learn all about this new system in our guide You and the Light of the Void crucible.

To find out which path of development is the most beneficial, please use this table to make the necessary calculations. (This will save you a lot of trouble!)

Features 3 Tier

For the final dash, there are usually 3 relic development options. These options are randomly chosen, but they cannot have the same feature as a relic already granted. However, they are not limited to any spectrum of features, and among them may be useful features that have no direct effect on the amount of outgoing damage (the so-called "utility" features).

In the game guide for the priest specialization "Darkness" we have a section that lists the recommended relics for this specialization.
