About Our Author

This guide has been written by Munkky, the main theorycrafter of the spec since it was initially announced, and an admin in the Demon Hunter Discords. He raids in Happy Accidents, you can watch his YouTube channel, and you can follow him on Twitter.

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.

We have only listed the raid pieces with good stats on them, so as to reduce the fluff. The Boots are the only "BiS" stat item.

2. From Dungeons

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.

3. Azerite Gear for Vengeance Demon Hunter

For information about what Azerite traits to choose and what the best items are, see our Azerite page.

4. 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. 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".
  2. Permafrost-Encrusted Heart Icon Permafrost-Encrusted Heart (if you can get this to drop, this is best in slot)
  3. Azerokk's Resonating Heart Icon Azerokk's Resonating Heart
  4. Lustrous Golden Plumage Icon Lustrous Golden Plumage
  5. Doom's Wake Icon Doom's Wake
  6. Dead-Eye Spyglass Icon Dead-Eye Spyglass

5. Single Target DPS Trinkets
