Legion Legendaries Disabled in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts


Restodroodopz found out that Legendaries now classify as Legacy in Shadowlands Alpha, and so their bonuses are disabled and won't work for low level characters or in Timewalking anymore.


The Legion Legendary Sephuz's Secret Sephuz's Secret is labelled as a Legacy item with inactive effects.


The Sentinel's Eternal Refuge The Sentinel's Eternal Refuge (BoE crafted Legion Legendary) is also marked as a Legacy item, rendering them pretty much useless.

We did some research and checked out Wrathion's cloak (Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve Rank 12) with the primary stat increasing effect which remains untouched, so the Legacy thing only seems to apply to Legion Legendaries.


The same goes for Legendaries from previous expansions, specifically MoP legendary cloaks and WoD rings; they are not tagged as Legacy Items and keep their effects.

They could solve this by making them legacy heirlooms you can use on any character in a specific level range.

Thanks, I hate it... Why just disable legion legendaries? Even if you're levelling a new char, you can only use 1 until you did your order hall upgrade which no one bothered with after legion. Sure it could be a pain to balance, but why would it matter? Their ONLY use is levelling and timewalking, neither of which are relevant content, so balance is already way out of wack... 

The only benefit I can see to this is levelling through PvP with these, otherwise just another FU to players who god forbid, played old expacs and want to show it off every now and then...


Edit - just did a timewalking with two decent g druid leggo's, the cape (MOP), ring (pre leggo tbf), and really wasn't that OP, kinda forget how rubbish they made legendaries in them for me. Still nice to flex mind. Obv this was only for a bear, DPS ones I can imagine being better I'd hope...

Oh come on blizz! I farmed for WEEKS to get the shoulders and boots for the warrior to run old raids and dungeons at an acceptable speed (180% ++)

Might not be due to balance concerns. May be due to coding issues and avoiding edgecase bugs. Legendaries that apply to old things can become risky code as you change classes over the years. They may've decided that it was better to axe them and save work, rather than lose work on other stuff in SWL in order to preserve legendaries in timewalking.


We'll see. I wish they'd stick around for timewalking too, but game devs have to make hard decisions. Having a huge company doesn't give you unlimited resources, and programming isn't just a matter of tacking on more manhours to a problem. Although having a good coding paradigm should make it way easier, but upholding and specifying such a thing in an MMO is a monumental task.

If the Ashjra'kamas is still providing some stats in Shadowlands, would it be worthwhile to get it on my alts? I have max cloak on my main, but my alts only have level 1-4, or none at all right now. Or will my cloak be replaced with something else once we start playing the expansion?

I wish that they didn't include this nerf to timewalking also. Perhaps someone with Alpha access can see how current cloak and corruption effects are scaling on timewalking when it comes around again. (It is nice the leveled cloaks still retain stats bonuses.)

Most people that farm timewalking are doing for either the 500 badges, alt caches, or the infinite timereaver mount. It's not considered progression content like m+. The timewalking raids were slightly more challenging than the dungeons; I don't think this change will help participation rates for those or timewalking in general. This guide does give me more ideas of things I should do before Shadowlands hits and this nerf likely sets in. Am a bit curious if other forms of scaling or instanced content removed legendaries effects as well. 

I do hope my rank 15 cloak and corruption effects are still fine. Would like to have one character I can have fun with still.

      Gilnean and Darnassian refugees are now gone from Stormwind.
      As you probably remember, Sylvanas burned down Teldrassil causing a massive influx of refugees in Stormwind 5 years ago.
      Reddit user yuvalal spotted there are no longer refugees present in Stormwind on the 10.2 PTR, which makes perfect sense now that Night Elves have Amirdrassil. The Forsaken have also withdrawn from Gilneas.

      I've looked on the 10.1.7 PTR and saw no signs of refugees either, so maybe they have been removed even before Patch 10.2.

      There are no longer any refugees or giant trees (Ancient Ones) at Stormwind Docks either on the 10.1.7 PTR.

      Here's a preview of all maps from the new Amirdrassil raid coming in the Guardians of the Dream update.
      Main Raid Map
      This appears to be the raid's main zone map.

      The raid has multiple boss rooms and houses a total of 9 bosses. You will find all boss rooms below.

      We're looking at the Mythic+ Tier List for the fourth week of Patch 10.1.7. Check out how your spec's doing!
      The following post is based on data from our sister site U.GG, which combines thousands of parses from live servers. Therefore, the data presented here may differ from Petko's Mythic Tier Lists maintained on our site.
      How the Data is Calculated
      U.gg's tier list is created by evaluating damage and healing scores from the very best players and factoring in the frequency of each spec's appearances in the highest rankings of the current Mythic+ season. The tier list of each spec is determined by its effectiveness and prevalence at the highest levels of Mythic+ play.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Patch 10.1.7 Week 4
      This week's affixes are: Tyrannical, Storming, Raging.
      Healer Tier List
      S-Tier Holy Paladin A-Tier: Discipline Priest Restoration Shaman B-Tier: Mistweaver Monk Holy Priest Restoration Druid C-Tier: Preservation Evoker
      Tank Tier List
      S-Tier: Guardian Druid A-Tier: Blood Death Knight B-Tier: Brewmaster Monk Vengeance Demon Hunter Protection Paladin C-Tier: Protection Warrior
      DPS Tier List
      S-Tier: Augmentation Evoker Shadow Priest Fire Mage A-Tier: Retribution Paladin Fury Warrior Enhancement Shaman Beast Mastery Hunter Balance Druid Subtlety Rogue Frost Mage Destruction Warlock B-Tier: Arcane Mage Outlaw Rogue Windwalker Monk Feral Druid Arms Warrior Havoc Demon Hunter Frost Death Knight Survival Hunter Elemental Shaman Devastation Evoker (up from C-Tier) C-Tier: Affliction Warlock (down from B-Tier) Marksmanship Hunter Demonology Warlock  Unholy Death Knight Assassination Rogue

      Blazing Drake, Experiment 12-B, Lifebinder's Handmaiden, Flametalon of Alysrazor, Smoldering Egg of Millagazor, and Infinite Timereaver all have a chance to drop from this week's Cataclysm Timewalking Cache!
      UPDATE: The cache isn't limited to Experiment 12-B as previously reported in this post. Thanls to @Cheatcho for clarifying.
      Multiple Cataclysm mounts have a chance to drop from this week's Timewalking Cache!
      So far, we've seen Ashes of Al'ar drop from the Burning Crusade Timewalking Cache, Invincible from the Wrath Cache, and now, Experiment 12-B has dropped from the Firelands Cache during Cataclysm Timewalking!
      In addition to Experiment 12-B, we've seen reports of Blazing Drake, Lifebinder's Handmaiden, Flametalon of Alysrazor, Smoldering Egg of Millagazor, and Infinite Timereaver found inside the cache.

      The mount has an extremely low chance to drop from Ultraxion in Dragon Soul.

      We may have gotten a big hint at what the next WoW expansion could be. Redditor Wiraneusz came across some achievements that include cross-promotion items for Warcraft Rumble, but also possibly the next expansion's Heroic edition mount!
      The "Heroic Edition: Algarian Stormrider" achievement is the big one from the list below, as it matches up with previous Heroic edition achievement names and is found int he same "promotions" section as the others. Wowhead's dataminers also confirmed the existence of these achievements, or at leas their names, as they are still encrypted.

      There are also the three "Storm Rider" medals, possibly related to new Dragonriding-type races in the new expansion.
      So what does this mean, what exactly is an Alarian Stormrider? Well, one of the commenters on the reddit thread pointed out a potential connection with dwarves/the earthen. Jump9575 remembered a new piece of Titan Watcher text from the Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr dungeon added in Dragonflight. The text talks about the earthen and their transformation via the Curse of Flesh, and specifically mentions "Khaz Algar" as one of the locations a sub-species of earthen (which also showed signs of the Curse of Flesh) went to. You can check out the full text here.
      Considering the above and the "Stormrider" part the header image takes on a whole new meaning now. So, will we be seeing some (possibly Wildhammer-related) earthen/dwarves in Khaz Algar in 11.0? Or does the Algarian Stormrider have nothing to do with the place mentioned in Uldaman? How about a gryphon mount for the Heroic edition?
      Here's the original reddit post:

      We also very recently speculated about the Naga Terrarium back item and its relation to 11.0, so could both these things come together in a naga/dwarf expansion?
