1. Gems for Havoc Demon Hunter

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) or Versatile Royal Quartz Icon Versatile Royal Quartz (or the cheaper Versatile Kyanite Icon Versatile Kyanite) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants for Havoc Demon Hunter

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

You can also use Enchant Weapon - Gale-Force Striking Icon Enchant Weapon - Gale-Force Striking in pure single target situations, but this will regularly be outperformed in AoE encounters by the Navigation alternatives.

Note that you want one of each of these Weapon enchants, rather than doubling up on them. It does not matter which hand you place which enchant on.

3. Consumables for Havoc Demon Hunter

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents should be used as your flask.

Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility is the DPS potion of choice for Havoc in all situations currently. Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice.

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Haste food (Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts).

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
