Early access to the new Demon Hunter class is now available to those who have pre-purchased the Legion expansion and have at least one level 70 character on their realm.
One of the newest recruits to the Illidari, you’ll begin your journey at level 98 in demon infested Mardum. As you make your way through this dangerous land, you’ll begin to learn the skills of a Demon Hunter, their history, and become proficient in harnessing the power that goes along with your chosen path. Be warned – not every Illidari makes it through.
Before you make your character, you’ll need to know a little bit more about the requirements for unlocking this hero class. In order to create a Demon Hunter, you’ll need to have at least one level 70 character on your realm. You’ll also have the option to choose between two races: Night Elf or Blood Elf. To take part in the early access period for the Demon Hunter, you’ll also want to pre-purchase the Legion expansion. Everyone who purchases the expansion after it launches on August 30 will also gain access to the class.
Here are just some of the potent abilities you’ll have at your disposal when you embrace the ways of the Illidari:
Spectral Sight: Demon Hunters’ blindness belies their true powers of perception. They rely on magically augmented sight to detect enemies—even those that hide behind obstacles.
Metamorphosis: Demon Hunters transform into hellish forms, enhancing their formidable powers. Damage-focused Illidari gain incredible swiftness and damage allowing them to finish their prey, while those who prize defense become nigh invincible in their demonic forms.
Demon Hunters also possess supernatural mobility: They can double-jump, vault in and out of combat, and even glide with their wings unfurled to unexpectedly descend upon their prey and surprise enemies from above.
Have Fun 🙂
