Talents Discussion

Tier 1 (15)

Havoc Demon Hunter Blind Fury TalentBlind FuryPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Demonic Appetite TalentDemonic AppetitePassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Felblade TalentFelbladeInstant

Blind Fury: more fury regeneration and increased Eye Beam duration.

Demonic Appetite: has a chance of spawning a soul fragment after using Chaos Strike that heals you and rewards 30 fury when picked up.

Felblade: charge attack that generates fury.

Use Felblade for raids and mythic + if you play Fae and Blind Fury for raids if you play Venthyr.

Tier 2 (25)

Havoc Demon Hunter Insatiable Hunger TalentInsatiable HungerPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Burning Hatred TalentBurning HatredPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Demon Blades TalentDemon BladesPassive

Insatiable Hunger: Demon's Bite deals 20% more damage and generates 5-10 additional fury.

Burning Hatred: Immolation Aura generates 60 additional fury over 12 seconds.

Demon Blades: replaces Demon's Bite. 60% chance per auto-attack to deal additional damage and generate fury.

Use Demon Blades for mythic + if you play Felblade, and use Insatiable Hunger for raids if you play Venthyr.

Tier 3 (30)

Havoc Demon Hunter Trail of Ruin TalentTrail of RuinPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Unbound Chaos TalentUnbound ChaosPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Glaive Tempest TalentGlaive TempestInstant

Trail of Ruin: applies a dot after each final slash of Blade Dance.

Unbound Chaos: the next Fel Rush after using Immolation Aura does 600% more damage.

Glaive Tempest: throw two demonic glaives to damage 5 nearby enemies for 3 seconds.

Trail of Ruin if you play with the Chaos Theory legendary, and Unbound Chaos in any other situation

Tier 4 (35)

Havoc Demon Hunter Soul Rending TalentSoul RendingPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Desperate Instincts TalentDesperate InstinctsPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Netherwalk TalentNetherwalkInstant

Soul Rending: leech increased by 10% and 20% additional leech in Metamorphosis.

Desperate Instincts: Blur reduces damage by an additional 10% and automatically triggers if you are below 35% health and Blur is not on cooldown.

Netherwalk: 6 second damage immunity, but you are unable to attack.

Use Soul Rending if you need more sustained healing, and Netherwalk if you need to utilize an immunity.

Tier 5 (40)

Havoc Demon Hunter Cycle of Hatred TalentCycle of HatredPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter First Blood TalentFirst BloodPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Essence Break TalentEssence BreakInstant

Cycle of Hatred: reduces the cooldown of Eye Beam by 3 seconds when Chaos Strike refunds fury.

First Blood: reduces the fury cost of Blade Dance by 20-seconds and increases the damage against the first target.

Essence Break: a slash in a cone that increases your Chaos Strike and Blade Dance damage to affected targets by 40% for 8 seconds.

Pick First Blood for M+, and Cycle of Hatred in raid situation.

Tier 6 (45)

Havoc Demon Hunter Unleashed Power TalentUnleashed PowerPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Master of the Glaive TalentMaster of the GlaivePassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Fel Eruption TalentFel EruptionInstant

Unleashed Power: removes the fury cost of Chaos Nova and reduces the cooldown by 33%.

Master of the Glaive: Throw Glaive has 2 charges and slows enemies hit by 50%.

Fel Eruption: stuns the target for 4 seconds.

All three talents work for raids and mythic+; pick what your group needs the most. If you play with Demon Blades I recommend you to play with Master of the Glaive because you can have some downtime during the fight and want to press Throw Glaive instead of just waiting.

Tier 7 (50)

Havoc Demon Hunter Momentum TalentMomentumPassive
Havoc Demon Hunter Fel Barrage TalentFel BarrageChanneled

Demonic: enter Metamorphosis for 6 seconds after Eye Beam finishes dealing damage.

Momentum: using Fel Rush increases damage done by 15% for 6 seconds. Vengeful Retreat’s cooldown is reduced and generates 80 fury for 10 seconds after damaging an enemy.

Fel Barrage: deal Chaos Damage for 3 seconds to 8 enemies within 8 yards.

Use Demonic in any situation.
