1. Battle for Azeroth Frequently Asked Questions

This section will go over several of the most frequently asked questions regarding Havoc Demon Hunter in Battle for Azeroth.

This will be updated as more common repeated questions surface over the course of the expansion.

1.1. Should I Cast Fel Rush in Single Target?

At its very base, Fel Rush Icon Fel Rush's damage increase in single target is negligible, and any uptime lost by casting it and moving out of melee range will be very detrimental, and as such is not advised. However, if using Momentum Icon Momentum, this requires you to use it in single target. This extends to using Unbound Chaos Icon Unbound Chaos, which requires you to aim the end of your Fel Rush casts at the target to make sure the final hit will land.

1.2. Should I Cast Eye Beam in Single Target?

In Battle for Azeroth, yes. Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam has had a bonus damage effect applied to your primary target, which causes it to be worth casting above your other resource spenders at all times. The exception to this is if you expect AoE to occur during the cooldown of Eye Beam, at which point you should consider holding it to gain damage on multiple targets.

1.3. What Piece is Better, X or Y?

The answer to this question in any context will always be to simulate it. This is because what is an upgrade for you may not be an upgrade for someone else. In other words, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all answer, even when talking about 2 completely identical comparisons from you to another person. Everything in your gear has an effect on everything else.

This applies to gear, set bonuses, trinkets, Azerite traits, and in certain circumstances, talents.

The only exception to this rule is when a specific fight dictates a certain set of optimal talents and gear pieces that enhance their strength. If you are curious about what kind of setup to go for a specific fight, WarcraftLogs.com's rankings and statistics are a good place to see what others are doing.

We have a guide on how to sim yourself here:

1.4. How Much of X Stat Should I Have?

For Havoc, there is no strict "amount" or breakpoint of any stat that you are required to reach. Nor are there any points at which a stat stops being desirable. In the majority of cases, the specific secondary you have is less important than the volume. This is however, another case of a situation in which a simulation done to check your ideal gear pieces and stat values will provide you invaluable information.
