Best Gems for Vengeance Demon Hunters

You should use Leviathan's Eye of Agility Icon Leviathan's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Quick Sand Spinel Icon Quick Sand Spinel (or the cheaper Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye) in all other sockets.


Best Enchants for Vengeance Demon Hunters

Slot Enchantment

You want to use 2 different enchants on your gear because you gain more stats from this method than stacking 2 of the same one.

The reason we do not have Enchant Weapon - Deadly Navigation Icon Enchant Weapon - Deadly Navigation listed for DPS is that the actual DPS gain on the enchant and Critical Strike in general is extremely random, and you gain more survival from the other stats. It is not recommended to gem or enchant Critical Strike or aim for the stat on gear.


Consumables for Vengeance Demon Hunters


Best Flasks and Potions for Vengeance

Greater Flask of the Currents Icon Greater Flask of the Currents along with Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury as your potion of choice.

Abyssal Healing Potion Icon Abyssal Healing Potion can be used along with Healthstones as they do not share a cooldown.


Best Food for Vengeance

You should eat from the Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table when possible, and otherwise Haste food (Baked Port Tato Icon Baked Port Tato or the cheaper Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips).

Note that you must change spec to Havoc at the moment when you eat the food in order to avoid getting a Stamina buff. That said, the Stamina buff is also viable.


Augment Runes for Vengeance

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.

Starting in patch 8.3 you can also use the re-usable Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.


War-Scrolls for Vengeance

War-Scrolls provide weaker versions of the class buffs, which is helpful in dungeons if you do not have a class that provide it.

  1. War-Scroll of Battle Shout Icon War-Scroll of Battle Shout
  2. War-Scroll of Intellect Icon War-Scroll of Intellect
  3. War-Scroll of Fortitude Icon War-Scroll of Fortitude
