Last updated on Jan 18, 2020 at 13:27 by Mysticall 9 comments

Racial bonuses can provide interesting PvP benefits. Here are the best races to choose for each faction. The races are sorted from highest impact in arena to lowest. However, all races below have their own unique ways of making an impact in a PvP match.

This page is part of our Havoc Demon Hunter PvP Guide.

1.

Best Alliance Races for Havoc Demon Hunters

  1. Night Elf
1.1.

Night Elf Racials

The Night Elf racial bonus (Shadowmeld Icon Shadowmeld) is always a strong choice. This racial has a high skill cap, but using it to avoid crowd control can be very powerful. For example, if a Mage is casting Polymorph Icon Polymorph on you, use Shadowmeld to avoid it. If you use Shadowmeld at the same time that a Priest uses their Psychic Scream Icon Psychic Scream, you will not be feared.

2.

Best Horde Races for Havoc Demon Hunter

  1. Blood Elf
2.1.

Blood Elf Racials

The Blood Elf racial bonus (Arcane Torrent Icon Arcane Torrent) has multiple effects. The primary use for this ability is that it removes 1 beneficial effect from all enemies in range. This is great for removing abilities such as Blessing of Protection Icon Blessing of Protection from Paladins or Soul of the Forest Icon Soul of the Forest from Restoration Druids. It can also be used versus players using the The Crucible of Flame Icon The Crucible of Flame Major Essence to remove the stacks it creates. The other effect is that it restores resources based on what specialization you are.
