Best Demon Hunter Legendary and Set Items

The most popular Demon Hunter armor and weapons at level 70 in Reaper of Souls
  • This guide has the most popular armor and weapons used by Demon Hunters in Diablo III, with the best in slot Demon Hunter items ranked by popularity.
  • The charts are generated from the data of more than 5 million Diablo III characters. They list the most powerful Demon Hunter Legendary and Set items used by level 70 Demon Hunters who are playing in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls.
  • This gear guide shows the equipment worn by the level 70 Demon Hunters who are actively playing in Reaper of Souls during Patch 2.1. For each weapon and armor slot, there are charts of three groups of Demon Hunters:
    1. The softcore Demon Hunters who are in the bottom 75% of elite monster kills.
    2. The softcore Demon Hunters who are in the top 25% of elite monster kills.
    3. Hardcore Demon Hunters, regardless of elite monster kills.
  • Each chart shows the best Demon Hunter items for a specific item slot. The most used Demon Hunter Legendary and Set items are listed in order of their popularity, and the percentage of Rare items used is at the bottom of the list. This guide shows the most useful gear for level 70 Diablo III PC Demon Hunters, and those in the console Ultimate Evil Edition on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, or Xbox 360. These are the top Demon Hunter items, used for end-game level 70 content like running Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts in Adventure Mode, or farming Paragon Levels.
  • This best in slot Demon Hunter gear guide has all the top gear just for Demon Hunters, most of which is dropping now. Any items marked as (Legacy) are older and no longer drop. Some Demon Hunters use those items as they hunt for new gear, to upgrade from the old equipment of patch 2.0 and before. See the Best Legendary and Set Items overview for more information about the Legendary editions, and for charts of the top items across all the classes combined.
  • The Most Popular Demon Hunter Builds and Skills charts reflect the Demon Hunter skills and builds that are used with this elite gear.

  • This chart lists the most popular Legendary and Set items for all level 70 hardcore Demon Hunters in Diablo III.
  • Since they must be more cautious when farming for gear, hardcore Demon Hunters do not gain the same number of Legendary or Set items on average as a softcore Demon Hunter. Because of this, there are fewer items widely used across level 70 hardcore Demon Hunters, compared to the Legendary and Set items popular with the softcore Demon Hunters.
