Choosing Azerite Gear as a Vengeance Demon Hunter

Your choice of Azerite Gear pieces will almost always come down to the item level first, and the traits that it has second. Note that you will have to look at all 3 Rings on a piece in order to properly choose between two pieces of gear. Use the lists below, as it is not as simple as taking the highest item level. With an increase of 30+ item levels, you should consider going for the higher piece.


Azerite Gear

Here is a list of the best items for both Mythic+ and raiding.

Choosing Azerite Traits as a Vengeance Demon Hunter


How to Use this List

A higher tier trait will always beat out a lower tier. In general you will prioritize higher item level then look up the traits. You can also choose to sim if you do not care as much about survival.

A Tier traits are the best and are the ones you will always prioritize.

B Tier traits are generally weaker than A tier. They usually provide less use benefits than A tier but are not completely useless to have.

C Tier traits are generally bad and you do not want to have these. If you are able to help it.

The traits within each tier are presented in a rough particular order, but it is more about the traits within the tier and item level.
