Demon Hunter Stats Priorities

Last updated on Sep 25, 2014 at 20:23 by Poyo 1 comment

Table of Contents

In this guide, we list the stats priority for each of your item slots. These priorities can be used to determine if an item is an upgrade over another item, and they will also save you gold and resources that you may otherwise have wasted trying to reforge for the wrong stats.

None of the tables below consider the special case of legendary items with exclusive stats, such as Cindercoat Cindercoat being the only Torso item with Fire Damage, or specific end-game builds that use their own priorities.
