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 9.2.


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 AoE DPS.

If you are unfamiliar with Mythic+ and its associated general mechanics, you can read more about it on our Shadowlands Mythic+ Season 2 page below.



Valor is gained from M+ dungeons that can be used to upgrade M+ gear. For more information on Valor, please see the link below.


Season 3 Encrypted Affix

Encrypted Icon Encrypted is the new seasonal affix that introduces 3 relics to existing trash packs and to bosses. The relics will provide buffs to the surrounding enemies or deal damage to the party while they are alive. Which relic you kill first will determine what buff the party will receive. Killing Urh will provide a movement speed buff and stealth designed for skipping trash pulls. Killing Wo first will provide a large Haste buff, and killing Vy first will provide increased cooldown rate.

Once all three relics are killed, a corresponding Automa spawns in relation to the first relic killed. When the Automa is killed, the party receives the buff. As a tank, Urh relic will spawn the Urh Dismantler that is considered the tankbuster. Its Deconstruct Icon Deconstruct ability will do a large amount of Physical damage and increase all damage taken by 25% for 5 seconds. Use the necessary cooldowns when this ability is triggered.


Legion Timewalking Infernal Affix

Infernal Icon Infernal is a new affix added in Patch 9.1.5 for Legion Mythic+ timewalking for keys level 10 and higher. New beacons will be available in the dungeon and triggering the beacon will spawn a Legion invasion. The beacons will automatically trigger when engaging a nearby boss. Most groups will trigger the invasions ahead of time so the group does not have to fight them at the same time as the boss. More coordinated groups will plan around spawning them with the boss.


Vengeance Demon Hunter Mythic+ Rotation

Your spell priority does not change in Mythic+ content. For more information, please visit the page below.


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.

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+ for kiting and additional damage reduction is as follows:

Our advised tree for Kyrian in Mythic+ for AoE damage is as follows:

Our advised tree for Kyrian in Mythic+ for maximum potency and endurance conduits is as follows:
