Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Single Target:

For pure damage:

Crit > Haste > Mastery > Vers

However, generally, you’ll want to go for:

Haste > Versatility > Mastery > Crit

Your Fracture cooldown gets reduced by haste, which in turn means more self-healing as you produce more soul fragments, which could also lead to more damage through Spirit Bomb


Again, for pure damage you would want to go for:

Crit > Haste > Versatility > Mastery

However, with regards to the above, I would recommend going for:

Haste > Versatility > Crit > Mastery


Demon Hunters do not have any choice when it comes to races. Alliance must play Night Elf and Horde must play Blood Elf.

Weapon: Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force

Feet: Enchant Boots - Eternal Agility
