Disambiguation: Were you looking for Demonsbane the Diablo novella by Robert Marks?

All traits were removed from the game prior to the press event of July 2011. These are archived for future curiosity and reference. This page is not to be updated with current info; see the skills page for current skill information.

Demonsbane was a Trait possessed by the Barbarian, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard. It provided bonus damage to Demon type monsters.

This trait has been removed from the game, along with Just...Stay...Dead! and Beast Hunter [1], according to Bashiok in a forum post:

We agree, and they were removed from Traits a while back. (not that you could have known that) So yay!

We don’t want traits (passives) to be boring. Even the ones that are pretty bland stat increase type passives, we try to make them feel weighty. Trait points are fairly rare, so that lets us make each point feel a lot sexier to spend. Even if they’re just standard +% stat passives, they’re BIG +% increases. But, there’s also a lot of traits that are fairly intricate in what they provide, and to no small degree can be game changers. Either way they’ll be a crucial component to any character build.

This was a Barbarian, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard trait. It seems highly-likely that the Demon Hunter would have gained it as well, as character development continues. When this article was originally written, the Demon Hunter traits were very few, and weaned from her original appearance at BlizzCon 2010.
