Tier 1 (15)
Between the two, Abyssal Strike generally provides more Single target damage as well as mobility, which usually makes it the go-to choice. However, with the conduit Growing Inferno, Agonizing Flames might very well pull ahead of Abyssal Strike. However, Agonizing Flames will never provide better mobility options than Abyssal Strike.
Tier 2 (25)
Tier 3 (30)
This row has three solid options.
Generally, Spirit Bomb will be the pick as it does the most damage. However, when running “Brand build” (2323321) or “Sigil build” (2213321), Spirit Bomb can be excluded as both legendaries included in those builds (Razelikh’s Defilement & Fiery Soul) rely on using Soul Cleave as the pain-spender, which then devalues Spirit Bomb.
So in short, Spirit Bomb should be the default choice but if you find yourself wanting to make more use out of your legendaries, then perhaps pick one of the others, either Infernal Armor or Charred Flesh.
Tier 4 (35)
Soul Rending is essentially a dead talent as it has no real use. You don’t do enough damage where 5% leech can really carry your self-healing and when you do press Meta, you don't need an additional 25% leech as it already makes you pretty much unkillable.
Feed the Demon is a solid talent, the problem Feed the Demon has is that it is on the same talent row as Fracture. If it wouldn’t be on the same talent row as Fracture, it could be considered, but right now it is only really picked in very niché situations.
Tier 5 (40)
The fifth row really depends on your groups’ needs.
Sigil of Chains should be picked if you need to AoE grips. Generally, Quickened Sigils should be the default choice in this row as the Kyrian covenant ability Elysian Decree counts as a sigil, making it a 48-second cooldown instead of a 60-second cooldown, and all sigils activate 1 second faster.
Tier 6 (45)
On row 6 there is really only one choice, unfortunately. Both Void Reaver & Soul Barrier feel they are lacking and Demonic lets Fel Devastation fill another gap in the Demon Hunters mitigation windows.
