Demon hunter vengeance skill

Vengeance is a Devices skill for the Demon Hunter. It was introduced in Reaper of Souls.


While in Vengeance form, the Demon Hunter is immune to all forms of Crowd Control (existing effects are cleared) and their every attack (regardless of the Proc Coefficient) fires off additional ranged weaponry in the form of rockets and piercing bolts:

  • Side Guns: 4 additional piercing shots. The bolts pierce for 80-100 yards, hitting all enemies in line and ignoring most obstacles (including Waller affix barriers), but cannot pierce through solid walls. These are fired in the direction the Demon Hunter is facing or moving (during Strafe).
  • Homing Rockets: 2 rockets fired at random nearby enemies, in any direction.

Visually, the Demon Hunter turns into a creature of darkness. The helm shape is taken from Natalya's Sight, while the rest of armor is shaped like Archon item tier.


  • Personal Mortar: instead of Homing Rockets, launch 2 Grenades at random enemies within 60 yards on every attack. Grenades explode for 150% damage each as Fire within 6 yards each. Damage type of piercing bolts also changes to Fire. (unlocked at level 62).
  • Dark Heart: Damage type of side arms changes to Lightning, and while Vengeance is active, all damage taken is reduced by 50%. (unlocked at level 63).
  • Side Cannons: no longer fires off Homing Rockets, but the side guns piercing bolts are replaced with empowered bolts (one per attack rather than four) that deal 225% damage as Physical and heal the Demon Hunter for 3% of maximum Life per enemy hit. (unlocked at level 65).
  • Seethe: Gain additional 10 Hatred per second while Vengeance lasts (unlocked at level 67).
  • From the Shadows: Instead of Homing Rockets, each attack summons one Shadow Clone that teleports to a nearby enemy and delivers one attack before vanishing, dealing 120% damage as Cold and freezing the victim for 3 seconds. Damage type of piercing bolts also changes to Cold. (unlocked at level 69).
