Enact vengeance to your enemies in World of Warcraft!

Demon Hunters command chaotic energies to inflict havoc on their enemies or focus it on themselves for attacks. These lethal warriors use the souls of slain enemies to sustain themselves. Demon Hunters can be played in two ways, either as a Melee DPS Havoc spec or a Vengeance Tank spec.

Vengeance Demon Hunters are formidable tanks that have great self-sustain and consistent damage. Check below for a guide to Vengeance Demon Hunters in World of Warcraft!

Ultimate Vengeance Demon Hunter Guide – WOW

Vengeance Demon Hunters are an amalgamation of the other tank classes. They have self-healing that scales on damage taken, they have damage mitigation and a DPS and crowd control toolkit that is uniquely their own. They also have a unique “Frailty” debuff that they inflict on enemies that is essential to their kit.

There are a lot of good things about Vengeance Demon Hunters. They have high mobility for a tank and excellent sustain. This allows them to have excellent solo capabilities and consistent damage output.

Despite these advantages, no class is perfect. The Vengeance Demon Hunter has very little utility to offer their party as they are very focused on sustaining themselves or damaging enemies.

Their damage mitigation and sustain also heavily relies on having a target, so they do poorly against being left alone with environmental damage.


There are basic skills that are available to all Demon Hunters. However, becoming a Vengeance Demon Hunter gives a player these spec exclusive abilities:

  • Infernal Strike
  • Mastery: Fel Blood
  • Shattered Souls
  • Shear
  • Soul Cleave
  • Thick Skin
  • Fel Devastation
  • Sigil of Flame
  • Sigil of Silence
  • Revel in Pain
  • Demon Spikes
  • Fiery Brand
  • Metamorphosis
  • Sigil of Misery

Skill Rotation

The rotation for Vengeance Demon Hunter is very forgiving and is good at generating AOE threat. Vengeance is focused on resource management, including mitigation damage and monster control.

To play optimally, you should build up souls and unleash them with Spirit Bomb or Soul Cleave.

The rotation is as follows:

  1. Fel Devastation
  2. Immolation Aura
  3. Fracture
  4. Sigil of Flame
  5. Spirit Bomb (when you have 4 or more Soul Fragments)
  6. Spirit Cleave (to spend Fury when you have no Soul Fragments)
  7. Throw Glaive and then repeat.

Talent Tree

This talent tree is great for general use. Following this tree makes the best use of your unique Frailty debuff, letting multiples of it stack on opponents and letting you deal more damage based on the amount of stacks.

The boost of damage from Soul Fragments to your skills is also invaluable to the damage portion of your build.

Stat Priority

The best stats to prioritize as a Vengeance Demon Hunter is as follows:

  1. Agility
  2. Haste
  3. Versatility
  4. Critical Strike
  5. Mastery
