Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Havoc Demon Hunter

This section specifically covers the optimal gems, enchants, food, and flasks to use for your character. To get a more detailed rundown of the different stats for Havoc Demon Hunter, please visit our dedicated Stats page.


Best Gems for Havoc Demon Hunter

Due to secondary stat diminishing returns, your gems may fluctuate depending on what is currently present on your gear. However, the most likely ideal choice is Quick Jewel Cluster Icon Quick Jewel Cluster or Versatile Jewel Cluster Icon Versatile Jewel Cluster (or the cheaper Quick Jewel Doublet Icon Quick Jewel Doublet/Versatile Jewel Doublet Icon Versatile Jewel Doublet) for extra Haste or Versatility.


Domination Shards

Bear in mind that these are disabled in any situation outside of Sanctum of Domination and Torghast, and The Maw in Patch 9.2, so they are no longer important enough to worry about.


Best Enchants for Havoc Demon Hunter

Slot Enchantment
Main Hand
Off Hand

Switching out Enchant Weapon - Sinful Revelation Icon Enchant Weapon - Sinful Revelation for Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force Icon Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force is useful for cleave and AoE situations, but always try to make sure to maintain one instance of Enchant Weapon - Celestial Guidance Icon Enchant Weapon - Celestial Guidance. The hand enchanted with each does not matter.

What Cloak enchant you pick is personal choice, but we recommend Avoidance for the extra damage reduction.

Lastly, Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats Icon Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats can be used on your chest instead of Enchant Chest - Eternal Skirmish Icon Enchant Chest - Eternal Skirmish if you want to focus more on Cleave/AoE scenarios.


Consumables for Havoc Demon Hunters


Best Flasks and Potions for Havoc

Spectral Flask of Power Icon Spectral Flask of Power should be used as your flask.

Potion of Spectral Agility Icon Potion of Spectral Agility is your damage potion of choice. Potion of Phantom Fire Icon Potion of Phantom Fire can be used for single-target situations.

Cosmic Healing Potion Icon Cosmic Healing Potion is the healing potion of choice.

Shadowcore Oil Icon Shadowcore Oil is your weapon oil of choice for your main-hand, and you should use a Shaded Sharpening Stone Icon Shaded Sharpening Stone on your off-hand.


Best Food for Havoc

Currently, whenever possible, you should use the Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism Icon Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism, if provided by your group. Alternatively, if using your own food, you should be using the Haste or Versatility food: Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic Icon Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic/Steak a la Mode Icon Steak a la Mode (though this may vary slightly depending on your gear).


Augment Runes for Havoc

If you can afford it, you should use Veiled Augment Rune Icon Veiled Augment Runes (or the permanent Eternal Augment Rune Icon Eternal Augment Rune) to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of the consumable runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
