Vengeance Demon Hunter War Mode Talents for Leveling

Questing in War Mode provides at least 10% additional experience and three new talents to choose. You will unlock one talent slot at level 20, 30, and level 40. There are several good choices depending on the content you are doing and whether or not you are playing solo.


PvP Talents

  • Everlasting Hunt Icon Everlasting Hunt is a passive ability that increases your movement speed by 15% for 3 seconds when dealing damage. This ability is designed to move from pack to pack quickly and more efficiently.
  • Jagged Spikes Icon Jagged Spikes reflects damage back to the attacker for 30% of the damage received when Demon Spikes is active. A strong tool to speed up how fast you can kill enemies while leveling.
  • Illidan's Grasp Icon Illidan's Grasp crowd controls 1 target for 6 seconds. If the ability is activated again, throw the target at a location within 40 yards and stun everything in the target area for 3 seconds. This ability provides additional crowd control and is fun to use.
  • Tormentor Icon Tormentor debuffs the target when taunted, applying the Focused Assault debuff, which increases the damage received by 3%. Your melee attacks refresh the duration of Focused Assault. Each unique target up to 5 that hits the target will stack Focused Assault by an additional 3%. This ability will provide a decent single-target damage buff in a party.
  • Detainment Icon Detainment increases the duration of Imprison by 2 seconds and makes the imprisoned target immune to damage and healing. This talent is amazing for arena and battlegrounds, but it should not be picked for leveling. Imprisoning a target while using this talent will put you into combat and prevents monster skipping when leveling.
  • Unending Hatred Icon Unending Hatred increases Fury generation based on magic damage received. Larger attacks will increase Fury generation. This talent is quite situational and weak while leveling.
  • Cleansed by Flame Icon Cleansed by Flame removes all magical effects when you cast Immolation Aura. This talent is situational, but it can be very strong depending on the situation.
  • Demonic Trample Icon Demonic Trample transforms you into a demon and increases your movement speed by 175%. Any enemy hit with the trample will be knocked and receive physical damage. You are immune to snares while trampling. Demonic Trample shares cooldown with Infernal Strike. This ability is decent to move around inside caves and other places where you cannot mount.
  • Sigil Mastery Icon Sigil Mastery reduces the cooldown of sigils by 25%. This talent should not be used.
  • Reverse Magic Icon Reverse Magic removes all harmful magic effects on you and all allies within 10 yards and, if possible, returns them to their caster. It has a 1-minute cooldown. Can provide situational value while leveling.
  • Blood Moon Icon Blood Moon empowers your Consume Magic Icon Consume Magic to now affect all enemies within 8 yards of the target, and grants 5% leech for 5 seconds after using it.
  • Chaotic Imprint Icon Chaotic Imprint makes your Throw Glaive Icon Throw Glaive deal damage from a random school of magic, leaving a mark increasing their damage taken from that school by 10% for 20 seconds. A good talent to increase damage done to enemies that you gather with Throw Glaive Icon Throw Glaive.
  • Cover of Darkness Icon Cover of Darkness increases the radius of Darkness Icon Darkness by 4 yards and increases its duration by 2 seconds.
  • Rain from Above Icon Rain from Above launches you up in the air and grants access to Fel Lance Icon Fel Lance allowing you to deal damage to enemies on the ground.
  • Glimpse Icon Glimpse grants you immunity to loss of control effects while under the effect of Vengeful Retreat Icon Vengeful Retreat and reduces damage taken by 75% until you land. A talent that will not add much to your leveling experience.


Congratulations on reaching Level 70! Now that you have hit Level 60, we recommend looking at our Easy mode page and Talents section to learn how to play at max level.
