Legion Demon Hunter Talents & Abilities

Every comment you leave on any BlizzCon 2015 post is entering you to win prizes like a Reins of the Swift Spectral Tiger. As long as you don't spam, each comment only increases your chances to win by giving you another entry. Read more here--we have several awesome prizes to give out all weekend.

Demon Hunter Customization

  • Like Death Knights, Demon Hunters have unique skin tones and hair colors. They go a step further with skin options that have spikes and scales.
  • Demon Hunters have additional customization options--tattoos, blindfolds, and horns. This is on top of the usual customization options for Night Elves and Blood Elves.
  • Chest tattoo options come in various shades of green, purple, pink, red, and black.
  • There are multiple horn and blindfold options, as well as a plain version--if you don't want your character to look too different!

Starting Zone Information

  • Everyone in the starting zone had the special "Illidari" title.
  • The starting experience takes place in Marduk the Shattered Abyss, with subzones Despair Ridge, Molten Shore, Inferno Peak, Seat of Command, Soul Engine, The Fel Hammer, The Doom Fortress.
  • After a few quests, you get the special Fel Saber mount.
  • Quests feel more interactive, like a story. When you reach some objectives, dialogue pops up with fancy graphics as the questgiver explains a little more about the area.
  • Bonus Objectives remain in Legion, and you'll find some right at the start for gold and experience.
  • You can get zone buffs from treasures - fel crystal fragments.
  • The demo had you playing in DPS spec, but looking at the tank spec preview, there's a new resource in addition to Fury - Pain.
  • We spied many new and updated models in the zone, even on little things like basilisks, spiders, and maggots.
