General Information

In this guide, you will find tips and advice to tackle Mythic+ dungeons with your Vengeance Demon Hunter in World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.0.5.

1.

Vengeance Demon Hunter in Mythic+

Vengeance Demon Hunter is one of the best tanks for Mythic+. While we lack somewhat in the survival department, we make up for with a lot of utility and high tank DPS.

If you are unfamiliar with Mythic+ and its associated general mechanics, you can read more about it on our Shadowlands Mythic+ Season 1 page below.

2.

Valor

Patch 9.0.5 added the ability to gain Valor from M+ dungeons that can be used to upgrade M+ gear up to item level 220. For more information on Valor, please see the link below.

3.

Season 1 Prideful Affix

Prideful Icon Prideful triggers at every 20% trash count and will spawn a Manifestation of Pride near your location. When the Manifestation dies, it provides the Prideful Icon Prideful buff, which increases damage and healing by 30%, movement by 60% and restoring mana for 60 seconds.

Maximizing the usage of Prideful Icon Prideful will be the key of clearing the dungeon quickly and efficiently. During Fortified Icon Fortified, triggering the Manifestation of Pride prior to a large pull by holding on to Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis and Demonic Icon Demonic to help survive the large pull. In Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical, triggering the Manifestation prior to each boss will greatly increase the speed in which the boss dies. Holding on to potions or any other cooldown like Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree will drastically increase the damage throughput.

Vengeance Demon Hunter Utility

Vengeance Demon Hunter provides support for the party through its sigils and high kiting potential via mobility.

We would like to preface this list by saying that all sigils can be cast up to 30 yards, explode after 3 seconds, which actually grants the effect of the sigil, and have an 8-yard radius. Using Quickened Sigils Icon Quickened Sigils will allow the sigils to explode after 2 seconds. This is mainly for Kyrian Vengeance players.

  • Sigil of Silence Icon Sigil of Silence provides a 6-second silence to all mobs effected. Note that this interrupts spellcasting. It can be cast every 60 seconds.
  • Sigil of Chains Icon Sigil of Chains grips in enemies and then slows them by 70%, allowing for easy mob management and kiting potential. It has a 1.5-minute cooldown.
  • Sigil of Misery Icon Sigil of Misery places a 20-second Fear on mobs affected. This interrupts spellcasting if the mob is feared and can be used on mobs that are fearable, but have uninterruptible abilities. This action fears them, which stops their cast. This can be cast every 1.5 minutes.
  • Imprison Icon Imprison is a ranged Incapacitate that has a 20-yard range and 45-second cooldown. It does not trigger combat and works extremely well in preventing mobs from pulling or as a quick "stun" for uninterruptable mobs.
  • Disrupt Icon Disrupt is an interrupt with a 10-yard range and a short 15-second cooldown. It also grants you 30 Pain if you successfully interrupt a cast.
  • Consume Magic Icon Consume Magic is a 30-yard purge that gets rid of one buff from an enemy and if you remove a buff, you get 20 Pain. It also has a short 10-second cooldown. With the increased amount of purgeable buffs, this is a very welcome addition.
  • Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike allows you to jump 30 yards (drops a Sigil of Flame Icon Sigil of Flame with the Abyssal Strike Icon Abyssal Strike talent) every 20 seconds (12 seconds with the talent), allowing for a high-mobility for pulling multiple packs, getting back to your group, and kiting.
  • Arcane Torrent Icon Arcane Torrent / Shadowmeld Icon Shadowmeld are actually racial abilities, but Demon Hunters can only be Night Elf and Blood Elf, which means that you will always have one of these at your disposal. Arcane Torrent is great for tanks, as they will always be in melee range and can AoE purge trash with ease. Shadowmeld allows you to do special skips with Sigil of Misery Icon Sigil of Misery that you could not do alone on the Horde side.

Covenants

The best Covenant for Vengeance is Kyrian. Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree provides a large damage boost that the default Vengeance kit is lacking. This is important for holding threat and providing a little more healing due to the three extra souls. Phial of Serenity Icon Phial of Serenity also provides an additional potion cooldown on a 5-minute timer and a way to remove most debuffs. Our advised tree for Kyrian in Mythic+ is as follows.
