How to play demon hunter havoc?
As it’s evident from introduction Havoc Demon Hunter is accessible only at 98 level which means it takes much work for your character to open this class if you decide to do that. To upgrade it up till 110 will take you only several steps. Till then and after your average DPS 110 Havoc Demon Hunter will have to pay attention at certain things in order to be successful in single and multiple-target battles. Get some tips from us now.
- Work with the optimization of Global Cooldown in terms of avoiding empty ones. Tune your talents and rotation exactly for that. Use the whole arsenal of your tools for moving together with extra tools helpful for extending the field of past melee damage.
- Learn your Fury as it’s a core of your talents table and is a base on which you define your reactions and steps in different battles. Keep an eye on a chance to cast Eye Beam so it’s never blocked when needed. Check if you can use First Blood during cooldowns: for that you need a certain amount of Fury.
- Usage of Eye Beam in single-target and multiple-target battles differ from each other. For the first situation use with cooldowns as the most powerful cast. For the second – stay away from casting Eye Beam when too many adds appear on the area as it will be just waste.
- Metamorphosis is a strong weapon you own: it provides with a big portion of damage during cooldowns together with using Fury as much as possible which means you must be sure you have enough Fury to get full package of advantages from it up till cooldown ends.
- Nemesis brings the highest level of damage even more than Metamorphosis. The enemies whose health is pretty weak will only waste your Nemesis which can be directed to more dangerous targets.
