General Information

Legendary Powers are targetable, unique effects that you can imbue certain base items with through the Runecarving system. In Shadowlands, these enable you to customize your Vengeance Demon Hunter, drastically improving your performance, and are arguably the most important aspect of your gear.

The purpose of this page is to help you pick the right legendary powers (and item slots for them) for your character, depending on the content you are interested in.

Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendaries

Legendaries are special equipment that has been empowered by the Runecarver inside of Torghast. Legendaries are broken down into spec-specific Legendaries that only affect Vengeance, and class-specific ones that affect generic Demon Hunter abilities. Unfortunately, Vengeance Demon Hunter has the worst Legendaries in the game.

Best Overall Legendary for Vengeance Demon Hunter

Razelikh's Defilement Icon Razelikh's Defilement is the standard Legendary Power for anyone running Kyrian Covenant in raid for the cooldown reduction for Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree.

Darkglare Boon Icon Darkglare Boon is the standard Legendary Power for a defensive build in Mythic+; it provides a chance for Fel Devastation Icon Fel Devastation to not trigger its cooldown and refund the Fury cost. Paired with Rapacious Hunger Icon Vengeance DH 4-Piece this will give a significant increase in uptime of Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis thanks to the talent Demonic Icon Demonic.

2.1.

Unity Power

Unity Icon Unity was added in Patch 9.2 and it provides you with your current Covenant's Legendary power. The power will automatically swap when your Covenant is swapped. This can be equipped at the same time as any other Legendary. You can buy Cinch of Unity Icon Cinch of Unity from The Enlightened faction vendor and it provides the Unity power on the belt slot. The power (Memory of Unity Icon Memory of Unity) itself can be purchased from the same vendor at Revered and that allows you to put the power on any equipment slot if you do not want it on the belt. This is a free Legendary power that should be used at all times once unlocked.

The powers provided by Unity Icon Unity are:

  1. Blind Faith Icon Blind Faith: Kyrian power that spawns 2 extra Lesser Soul Fragments when Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree hits a target and provides the buff Blind Faith for 20 seconds. For each Lesser Soul Fragment consumed, you gain 10 Fury and 1% versatility, up to 20%.
  2. Agony Gaze Icon Agony Gaze: Venthyr power that does 10% increased Sinful Brand Icon Sinful Brand damage and increases the duration of Sinful Brand by 0.75 seconds when Fel Devastation Icon Fel Devastation deals damage.
  3. Blazing Slaughter Icon Blazing Slaughter: Night Fae power that causes you to be engulfed in Immolation Aura Icon Immolation Aura and gain 4% Agility for 12 seconds for each enemy hit by The Hunt Icon The Hunt
  4. Demonic Oath Icon Demonic Oath: Necrolord power that applies Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand on 5 nearby enemies for 5 seconds when the Fodder to the Flame Icon Fodder to the Flame's demon explodes. Additionally, Shattered Soul's duration is increased by 8 seconds.
3.

Best Raiding Legendaries for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These are the recommended Legendaries for Raiding. Survivability and damage are considered.

  1. Razelikh's Defilement Icon Razelikh's Defilement will lower the cooldown of Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree by 2 seconds when casting Soul Cleave Icon Soul Cleave, if Kyrian is the selected Covenant. This will increase both single-target and AoE damage slightly. This should be worn on the Wrist slot.
  2. Fiery Soul Icon Fiery Soul is a good, consistent defensive option for Vengeance. Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand cooldown is lowered by 2 seconds for each Soul consumed by Soul Cleave Icon Soul Cleave. This Legendary adds no noticeable damage, so it will hurt both single-target and AoE damage significantly.
4.

Best Mythic+ and Torghast Legendaries for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These are the recommended Legendaries for Mythic+ and Torghast. Survivability, damage, and utility are considered.

  1. Darkglare Boon Icon Darkglare Boon provides a 40% chance for Fel Devastation Icon Fel Devastation to not trigger its cooldown and refund the Fury cost. In combination with Rapacious Hunger Icon Vengeance DH 4-Piece and Demonic Icon Demonic this legendary gives a significant increase in uptime of Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis.
  2. Razelikh's Defilement Icon Razelikh's Defilement will lower the cooldown of Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree by 2 seconds when casting Soul Cleave Icon Soul Cleave if Kyrian is the selected Covenant. This will increase both single target and AoE damage marginally. This will also decrease the cooldown of a Sigil selected at random by 8 seconds. This increases overall utility.
  3. Fiery Soul Icon Fiery Soul is a niche, consistent defensive option for certain boss heavy dungeons. Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand cooldown is lowered by 2 seconds for each Soul consumed by Soul Cleave Icon Soul Cleave. This Legendary adds no noticeable damage, so it will hurt both single-target and AoE damage significantly but will not have random properties unlike previously mentioned.
