Demon hunter abilities are abilities used by demon hunters. Most abilities are shared between both specializations, while some are only specific to one specialization.


All demon hunters automatically learn the following spells at the specified level, regardless of specialization.


Unlike other classes, demon hunters only have two specializations available. The two demon hunter specializations are Havoc (melee DPS) and Vengeance (tanking).

For a summary of the character and strengths of each spec, see Demon hunter specializations.


Talents become available at level 15. Only one talent can be chosen from each tier.

They can be swapped out any time outside of a rested area using  [Tome of the Tranquil Mind].
