Best Covenant for Havoc Demon Hunters in PvP
For more information about what Covenants bring you, please refer to our page about Covenant abilities for Demon Hunters.
It is important to choose the correct Covenant, as it has many impacts on your gameplay. Your Covenant will give you both a Covenant ability and a class ability. The next choice you have will be Soulbinds and Conduits. All of these are Covenant-specific and they are different based on which you choose. Here is are the best Covenants for Havoc Demon Hunter.
- Night Fae is the best Covenant you can choose. This gives you a strong burst ability, The Hunt. With a relatively short cooldown, you can use this for single-target damage and to heal yourself if you need it. You will also get Soulshape that will increase your mobility.
- Venthyr is another good Covenant you can choose. This gives you Sinful Brand. This will help increase your single-target damage and burst damage, as it will be applied to all enemies in range when you use Metamorphosis. The downside is that the debuff can be dispelled, making it useless if the enemy healer dispels it.
