General Information

On this page, you will find a number of useful simulation results for your Vengeance Demon Hunters in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7.


Simulations in Dragonflight

Simulations will have very limited support initially as Dragonflight is released.


Simulations for Tanks?

Simulation programs such as Raidbots are incredibly useful programs for World of Warcraft players. They can suggest to you what talents to use, what gear you have is best for you, or what stats you should prioritize. Over time, "simming" has become more and more widespread throughout the WoW community. The main place to perform simulations is on Raidbots.

Does this work for tanks? The answer is yes and no. You can simulate DPS gains for most tanks currently to a reasonable degree. This will have similar rules to simming damage-dealing specs. The difference for tanks is that you cannot properly simulate for survivability. There are several factors and metrics for tanking, and different situations will weigh things differently, which makes it almost impossible to accurately simulate survivability.

Currently, some types of simulations on Raidbots are not supported for Vengeance Demon Hunter. Therefore the recommendation is to always simulate using Patchwerk settings with different amount of targets. 1 target for simulating fighting bosses and 5 or more targets with shorter time settings for normal groups of enemies.


Combat Logs

Combat Logs are a recording of all actions in a dungeon or raid, which are then formatted in an easy-to-read way. Websites such as Warcraft Logs serve as a directory where you can upload your own logs, or examine those of other players. You can use logs of yourself, or others of your class and specialization, to help improve your play.

WoW Analyzer is an exceptionally powerful and easy-to-use tool for analyzing a combat log. Even if you are inexperienced with combat logs, WoW Analyzer will quickly provide a wide variety of suggestions to improve your play, including stat weights.

To get the best results, we recommend using combat logs, the discord communities, and programs like WoW Analyzer together to make the best choices for talents and gear.
