Hello there, I’m Meyra. A distinguished member of The Fel Hammer with love for optimizing every single detail of Vengeance Demon Hunters.

Vengeance Demon Hunter is a tank defined by its strong self-sustain, strong cooldowns, and unparalleled mobility. It brings the Chaos Brand debuff to the raid alongside Havoc Demon Hunters, as well as the defensive raid cooldown Darkness. With the new talents, Vengeance returns as a remade tank, with new and old tools at its disposal. The only large negative that remains is that Vengeance is still very dependent on being in melee range with the Boss to maintain its self-sustaining capabilities.

Patch 10.1 Embers of Neltharion brings a new tier set from the Aberrus raid, which is set to shake things up significantly for Vengeance Demon Hunters. The tier set focuses heavily on Fire Damage and especially the Fiery Brand ability.

What has changed

Patch 10.1 Demon Hunter Changes

Alongside the 25% buff to Stamina and 25% damage dealt by enemies with the release of Embers of Neltharion, all of Vengeance’s flat healing abilities have been buffed to compensate. Overall, this just means that all our healing will heal the same relative amount as before. Anything that healed for 10% of your health in 10.0.7 will still heal you for 10%.

First Impressions

The introduction of the Aberrus Tier Set will change things up pretty noticeably for Vengeance Demon Hunters, especially in Mythic+. With a tier set focusing heavily on fire damage and Fiery Brand, it is highly expected that the premier build will be leaning into Fiery Brand related talents for massive uptime on Fiery Brand, and with them uptime of Fiery Demise for large amounts of damage.
