Intro Experience
  • Demon Hunters have a unique starting experience, similar to what Death Knights got.
  • The Demon Hunter is awoken in the Vault of the Wardens. The Wardens are desperate for their help when the Legion invades.
  • Before you do that, you will get to take part in the events that take place ten years back in time at the Black Temple.
  • In order to fight demons, Illidan had to partner with demons. He had to sacrifice many things for great power and so do the Illidari, which is why Demon Hunters look somewhat like Illidan.
  • You, as a member of the Illidari, are sent off by Illidan on a crucial mission to the world of Mardum.
  • Mardum was a prison world for demons a long time ago, but it was shattered by Sargeras. You are there to get the Keystone that held the demons in for a long time.
  • You receive an Illidari title and your Felsaber mount during the intro.
  • You start with item level 660 gear and item level 690 weapons. You will earn some 675 gear from the quests.
  • Maiev Shadowsong takes you prisoner at the end of the intro, putting you in the Vault of the Wardens for a long time.
  • The second half takes place in Vault of the Wardens, coming in Beta.
  • You then return to Mardum to establish your class Order hall.
  • At the end of the starting experience you can immediately begin Legion content.


  • There are many different horn styles to choose from, along with the option to have no horns.
  • There are also many tattoo options, which will be shown off with the Demon Hunter class specific armor.
  • For now, Demon Hunters are the only ones who get tattoos.
  • There are different skin variations. Some are scaly and demonic and some are more normal.
  • There are different types of eyewear: the Illidan style blindfold, a veil, and other blindfolds are available.
  • It is possible that in a future expansion more races could become Demon Hunters, but for now it is only Blood Elves and Night Elves.
  • In order to fight demons, Illidan had to partner with demons. He had to sacrifice many things for great power and so do the Illidari, which is why Demon Hunters look somewhat like Illidan.
  • New VO for Demon Hunters, things like /train, /flirt, /silly.

  • Warglaives are a new type of weapon that only Demon Hunters can use. They are a pair that comes together and fills both slots.
  • Demon Hunters can also use Daggers, Fist Weapons, One-Handed Axes, One-Handed Maces, and One-Handed Swords.
  • The Demon Hunter Artifact Warglaives can be see in some of the character creation screenshots for Demon Hunters.
  • Demon Hunters are agile, so they will be wearing leather. This isn't a huge problem now that Personal Loot is used in most places.
  • The team talked about having the Demon Hunter wear mail, but it didn't fit the class identity.

  • Demon Hunters only have two specs, as healing didn't make sense and another DPS spec would water down the identity of the class.
  • Demon Hunters will have a short transform, with inner demon visuals.
  • The Demon Hunter is going to be a very agile class, so tanks may have lots of Dodge and Parry mechanics for their tanking style.
  • Distinguishing the Demon Hunter from Monks and Rogues will be important. Rogues are about stealth and crowd control, whereas the Demon Hunter is about in your face mobility and getting out when they are in trouble. Monks are a little more of a hybrid, with some self healing.
  • You can use the double jump in battlegrounds and dungeons. The team will be careful to avoid breaking the game with Demon Hunters using double jump current content, such as groups that only want Demon Hunters to skip things in dungeons.
  • Double Jump allows you to get over obstacles that other classes cannot!
  • Demon Hunters transform into hellish forms, enhancing their chosen role: damage-focused Illidari can teleport into combat, while those who prize defense can grant powerful supportive Auras
  • Demon Hunters can double jump, vault in and out of combat, and even unfold their monstrous wings to perform gliding descents and surprise enemies from above.
  • Demon Hunters of either faction can speak Demonic to each other!
