1. Best in Slot List for Vengeance Demon Hunters

Bear in mind that all of this is subject to change based on Warforging and Titanforging happening on gear, so this is absolutely a guideline and not a rule. Note that it is also just dealing with gear from raid environments, so this could change if you are spending a large amount of time in Mythic+ and gaining different, rarer pieces.

2. From Battle of Dazar'alor

There is also a unique proc-effect Fist Weapon, Bile-Stained Crawg Tusks Icon Bile-Stained Crawg Tusks from The Underrot. This effect can be strong, but the loss of secondary stats and additional randomness makes it a side-grade choice based on current simulations.

6. Trinkets for Vengeance Demon Hunters

Defensively, you will go for trinkets that grant stats. None of them are particularly amazing in this instance, however going for trinkets with stats on them give you a mix of offense and defense.

  1. Bwonsamdi's Bargain Icon Bwonsamdi's Bargain will be fight and strategy dependent, but has potential to be used fairly often. When you would die, it absorbs a portion of the damage then gives you a healing absorb based on a percentage of that damage. It will be a good progression tool depending on the fight. Good to have even if you are nor currenlty using it.
  2. Diamond-Laced Refracting Prism Icon Diamond-Laced Refracting Prism has a small absorb, but due to most tank trinkets being underwhelming at best, this is actually a pretty good choice.
  3. Xalzaix's Veiled Eye Icon Xalzaix's Veiled Eye is one of the better trinkets, as it is a shield that procs when you are low on health. Good progression tool.
  4. Darkmoon Deck: Blockades Icon Darkmoon Deck: Blockades is one of the best defensively at the moment. It is not very strong, but compared to the rest, it is "good".
  5. Galecaller's Boon Icon Galecaller's Boon provides you with Haste on a short cooldown, which makes this very good for raid; potentially one of the best trinkets overall.
  6. Azerokk's Resonating Heart Icon Azerokk's Resonating Heart
  7. Lustrous Golden Plumage Icon Lustrous Golden Plumage
  8. Dead-Eye Spyglass Icon Dead-Eye Spyglass
