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.

1.

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.

2.

Best Overall Legendary for Vengeance Demon Hunter

Razelikh's Defilement Icon Razelikh's Defilement is the standard legendary power for anyone running Kyrian Covenant for the cooldown reduction for Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree.

Fiery Soul Icon Fiery Soul is the standard legendary power for a defensive build. The main downside of this legendary power is that Spirit Bomb Icon Spirit Bomb is useless when maximizing the cooldown of Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand.

Collective Anguish Icon Collective Anguish provides an overall damage increase in all content but it does not provide any defensive perks.

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.
  2. Fiery Soul Icon Fiery Soul is the best 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. If combined with the Fel Defender Icon Fel Defender conduit, the cooldown of Fiery Brand will be drastically reduced. This legendary will hurt both single target and AoE damage because Spirit Bomb Icon Spirit Bomb is useless when all of the Souls are being consumed by Soul Cleave.
  3. Collective Anguish Icon Collective Anguish is an overall decent legendary for increased damage in all situations, but does not provide any defensive benefit. The summoned Demon Hunter is stationary and can miss, so positioning is important when casting Fel Devastation Icon Fel Devastation.
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. 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. This will also decrease the cooldown of a Sigil selected at random by 8 seconds. This increases overall utility.
  2. Fiery Soul Icon Fiery Soul is the best 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. If combined with the Fel Defender Icon Fel Defender conduit, the cooldown of Fiery Brand will be drastically reduced. This legendary will hurt both single target and AoE damage because Spirit Bomb Icon Spirit Bomb is useless when all of the souls are being consumed by Soul Cleave.
  3. Collective Anguish Icon Collective Anguish is an overall decent legendary for increased damage in all situations but does not provide any defensive benefit. The summoned Demon Hunter is stationary and can miss so positioning is important when casting Fel Devastation Icon Fel Devastation.
  4. Sephuz's Proclamation Icon Sephuz's Proclamation provides a good stat increase on a consistent basis as long the enemies are able to be crowd controlled, interrupted, or dispelled.
