1. Gems for Havoc Demon Hunter

You should use Deadly Deep Chemirine Icon Deadly Deep Chemirine (or the cheaper Deadly Eye of Prophecy Icon Deadly Eye of Prophecy) in all sockets. Due to the strength of Secondary stats for Havoc, it does not currently use Saber's Eye of Agility Icon Saber's Eye of Agility.

3. Consumables for Havoc Demon Hunter

Flask of the Seventh Demon Icon Flask of the Seventh Demon should be used for raids along with Potion of the Old War Icon Potion of the Old War as your potion of choice for single target, with Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power winning out in AoE and Cleave or when using Demonic Icon Demonic.

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is very useful in some circumstances due to its long duration, most notably in extended AoE situations like M+. It also wins out when using Demonic Icon Demonic due to the extended periods of Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis. Old War lends itself very well to other builds for single target, and is still advisable at lower gear levels or when not using Demonic.

For food, you should eatThe Hungry Magister Icon The Hungry Magister for the Critical Strike buff (or Leybeque Ribs Icon Leybeque Ribs, if you cannot afford the +375 food). Astral Healing Potion Icon Astral Healing Potion can be used in place of Healthstones.

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 40,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
