General Information

This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to play in a PvP environment. The guide will cover everything from talent choices, PvP talents, gameplay and rotation, and useful racial bonuses. It is most applicable to Arena content, but most talents and racial bonuses will work in Rated Battlegrounds and skirmishes.


Havoc Demon Hunters in the Current Meta

Havoc Demon Hunters are the most feared class in the game. They not only have strong crowd control in the form of stuns and kicks, but they also have the strongest offensive cooldown in the game, Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis; on a relatively short cooldown, you can easily swap to an enemy without a trinket and kill them in a stun.


Havoc Demon Hunters Strengths

  • Great mobility
  • Strong burst and sustained damage
  • Multiple utility spells

Havoc Demon Hunters Weaknesses

  • Weak against teams with multiple stuns
  • Predictable burst damage
  • Very little team composition diversity
