Going over Havoc DH, i would first like to just say that with the great unpruning of classes it is a shame that Demon Hunters are not getting abilities/traits back from their Artifact weapons. It would be great return to fluidity and form for us to also get abilities back.
Going over talents. Yet again it feels like with how unchanged the talent tree is we are going to only pick DA+Demonic and call it a day. With an expac and a half of just doing Demonic maybe we should embrace that fact and come up with talents that first compliment DA+Demonic being baseline and second, give us maybe a dot management like the old glaive throw talent from legion.
Here are some ideas on what we can do to spice things up for our talents:
-Make Demonic Appetite baseline and move Insatiable hunger to lvl 15 row, and to make a tad better add Anger of the half giant legendary effect to it, so that if we take Demon Blades it still benefits us!
-For lvl 25 add throw glaive adds a dot to that row so it gives us something new. Burning Hatred either needs to be added to immulation auro, or add Vengenace DH fallout trait to it to make it a bit more interesting.
-Level 30 row, throw fell mastery out, add Crashing Chaos from legion to that row and move Essence Break up for an interesting proper AOE focus row. I would love to have Fury of the Illidary replace Fel Barrage but i also wouldn’t mind that becoming a new legendary effect.
-35 is fine.
-40 row. Cycle of hatred should get changed to Fury spent instead of refund for a bit more control and consistency, also it makes it interesting and competative. By this point just make First blood baseline, trail of ruin comes here and i can’t think of a new talent but we should put something here to content with trail of ruin and cycle of hatred since essence break would be moved up to lvl 30 row.
-45 is still fine.
-And here we are at level 50, with demonic baseline lets get back Chaos Blades as a great alternative to these other talents and a 2 min CD which we are desperately missing, especially since Visions of Perfection essence is going away. First it works well with Demonic baseline and if we take Demon Blades, and even if we don’t we still have an option for a nice 2min CD.
To make a long post short, we should embrace Demonic Appetite + Demonic traits as baseline since we’ve pretty much chose them every time, and bring back Legion traits and abilities into our new talent tree to open up new possibilities and play-styles, the changes suggested above present us with real choice since we don’t have to worry about not having Demonic+Demonic Appetite.
