In World of Warcraft Shadowlands, the legendary items known mainly from the Legion expansion are reinvented. Instead of farming a legendary item and hoping for the luck of the drop, in the future you will earn materials with which you can make your own legendaries. In this special you will find out which legendary affixes monks can choose from.

In World of Warcraft Shadowlands, each class has four general legendary powers and four talent-specific legendary powers to choose from when making legendaries. In total, each specialization has access to eight legendary powers. Many of these legendary powers are inspired by previous set bonuses, artifact powers, and legendary legion effects. The production of the legendary items takes place at the rune mason in the Torghast dungeon; the materials can be farmed or obtained from various trades. For example, blacksmiths make the basic items for legendary plate armor, leather processors make corresponding leather armor and inscribers various runes with which you can set secondary stats such as speed or critical hit chance. The last ingredient is a certain amount of soul ash, which you can get from chests in the Torghast dungeon.

Rules for legendary items in Shadowlands

The following rules currently apply to Shadowlands Legendaries:

  • Only one legendary item can be equipped at a time. The number is to be increased as the expansion continues.
  • All legendary affixes can appear in two specific item slots.
  • Two secondary stats can be set.
  • Legendary items can be transmogrified.
