Legion: Demon Hunter Artifact Reveal

October 23rd by Blizzard Entertainment

Only Azeroth’s most seasoned veterans possess the fortitude to wield Artifacts of legend against the Burning Legion. Your myth-forged weapon grows in power as you do, and your choices will change its abilities and the way it looks, sounds, and feels in combat. Fashion your Artifact into the perfect instrument of battle, and guide your faction in its most desperate hour.

You have become one of the greatest Demon Hunters in Azeroth, deserving of a weapon not only with power—but with a name.

Disciples of Illidan

Demon Hunters have two distinct specializations: Havoc and Vengeance. Each brings with it a unique identity that is reflected within the Artifact weapon choices.

  • Havoc Demon Hunters deal quick and lethal damage with the Twinblades of the Deceiver. These glaives of immense power cut through all that would stand in the Demon Hunter’s way.
  • Vengeance Demon Hunters stand strong against all incoming threats. Their weapons of choice are the Aldrachi Warblades, which are infused with the might and incredible resilience of a lost people.

Each Artifact is a symbol of the might of the Demon Hunter that wields it. Names have power—learn those of these mythic weapons well, for they will be your constant companions against the deadliest foe you’ve faced yet.

Havoc – Twinblades of the Deceiver

These glaives belong to the former demon hunter Varedis Felsoul. Once a member of the Illidari and a sworn enemy of the Burning Legion, he was slain at the Black Temple. After the Legion's leader, Kil'jaeden, revived him in the Twisting Nether, Varedis surrendered to the demon within him, forsaking his mortality. In the process, he and his glaives were infused with great power by Kil'jaeden's eredar allies.

Vengeance –Aldrachi Warblades

In ages past, the dark titan, Sargeras, offered the mighty aldrachi people a place in his Burning Legion. But the aldrachi proved incorruptible: they slew innumerable demons before their race was wiped out. Sargeras personally killed their greatest champion and seized his weapons. Much later, a demon hunter willingly became the servant of Sargeras' lieutenant Kil'jaeden. Pleased, Kil'jaeden bestowed the warblades on her, that she might wield a portion of the aldrachi's bygone might, and devastate the mortals of Azeroth with it.
