Havoc Demon Hunter | Legion | 7.0.3

Havoc Demon Hunter guide

Hello and welcome to the Legion 7.0.3 Havoc Demon Hunter guide.

Havoc in Legion is a melee spec with extreme high mobility and insane burst AoE.  Demon Hunters use fury to perform their devastation attacks. Skill and dps based on your fury control and on uptime of momentum buff (if you choice it in 106 tier).

Unforgiving Predators
Demon hunters, disciples of Illidan Stormrage, uphold a dark legacy, one that frightens their allies and enemies alike. The Illidari embrace fel and chaotic magics—energies that have long threatened the world of Azeroth—believing them necessary to challenge the Burning Legion. Wielding the powers of demons they’ve slain, they develop demonic features that incite revulsion and dread in fellow elves.

Class Information
Forgoing heavy armor, Demon Hunters capitalize on speed, closing the distance quickly to strike enemies with one-handed weapons. However, Illidari must also use their agility defensively to ensure that battles end favorably.
  • Resources: Fury
  • Armor Type: Leather
  • Available Weapons: Warglaives, Daggers, Fist Weapons, One-Handed Axes, One-Handed Swords

Havoc is a brooding master of warglaives and the destructive power of Fel magic.

Chaos Cleave – Nice choice if you always have 2 targets, that stays close enough.

Blind Fury – Worst talent in this tier.

Havoc Demon Hunter single target rotation

Annihilation > Fel Barrage > Fury of the Illidari > Throw Glaives >Eye Beam> Chaos Strike

Note: Fel Barrage, Fury of the illidary, Throw Glaives, Eye Beam use only with Momentum buff.

Also we must never let the Fel Rush to have 2 stacks and use Vengeful Retreat on CD, it’s most important part becouse of the Momentum buff.

It will be perfect if your uptime of Momentum buff will be around 55% but 45% is fine too, If your uptime is <=40% then Nemesis for you will be better.

Best way to use Fel Rush and Vengeful Retreat on medium/large bosses is:
Havoc FR best use

Multi-Target Rotation

    This was brutally painful to read as a 90% parsing DH main. Most was correct, although ripped straight from Icy Veins and Noxxic. Huge skill errors and lacking information of what skill to use at what fury level. Demon Blades will always always always perform worse than Prepared, and even Demonic Appetite. You have 2.6 weapons and no attack speed boost, your white dmg is pitiful. Chaos Strike should be your number 2 ability under Throw Glaive. And only used at full Fury, or a Fury dump during Momentum. Easily 65% total dmg is ChaosStrike(Annillation during Meta). Perfect uptime of Momentum, with Prepared talent is closer to 65% Second to Nemesis only during long ST Bloodlust,Heroism phases.
