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.

Edited:  adding this.  All this does it make it feel like my past grinds meant nothing.  I totally agree with the game needs to move forwards and have better and funner gear....... but timewalkers where the one way we could show off how we where invested in old expansions.  they are limited time even that also a scaled to lfg 5mans....  I wouldnt mind if they are disabled in the raids, but to completely disable them.... well makes me wonder why I even tried to start off with

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.

      We have a very useful list/visual made by TempusSimian today, as they've taken a look at all the Covenant-related mounts you can acquire, and you don't even need to be in that specific Covenant for all of them (although you might need help from someone who is)! This isn't a definitive and final list, as TempusSimian has just researched the matter and the expansion is 2 days old, but it's very useful nonetheless! It's also a giant image so zoom in for the best results!

      In terms of actually being able to ride the mounts when not in that specific Covenant, the non-Covenant specific section SHOULD be usable regardless of affiliation. Another thing to note: it's likely that after Shadowlands, all of the Covenant exclusive mounts will become available to everyone, as you won't be in your Covenant for the next expansion's content (presumably, at least). We can't be sure on that last one, but it's a safe/reasonable bet. Also, don't forget, you can swap Covenants if you're just after the mounts for your collection and mounts collected total number (so maybe one of your alts will be the Covenant traitor and go around collecting mounts)!

      So thanks a lot to TempusSimian for assembling this and hopefully it will aid you in your mount collecting journey!

      It seems Blizzard are putting together some official info for new players, as we have a new trailer for new players and their adventure in Exile's Reach, as wel as the official Chromie Time guide/reminder to chekc out. 
      Timewalking Campaigns (source)
      Have you ever wanted to seamlessly explore the story in full for Wrath of the Lich King, Burning Crusade, or a different past expansion? Now you can fully immerse yourself in any expansion’s questlines (and earn level-appropriate loot and experience gains) with Timewalking Campaigns! Once you reach level 50 on any character on your account, any 10 to 49 level characters can use Timewalking Campaigns to choose an expansion for their leveling experience. To do so, interact with the Hero’s Call Board located in Stormwind’s Trade District or Orgrimmar’s Warchief’s Command Board in the Valley of Strength and select “Chromie’s Call.” From here, you’ll be pushed a quest, “Adventurers Wanted: Chromie’s Call” which will lead you to Chromie who awaits adventurers near the Stormwind Embassy to the north-west of the Dwarven District or the Orgrimmar Embassy in the southern-most area of The Valley of Spirits. After meeting with Chromie, you’ll be able to pick a campaign from any past expansion which will scale to your level.
      Now just select a campaign, and you’re ready for adventure! Simply follow the new quest pushed to you and travel to the destination listed in the quest’s objective. From there you’ll be able to explore the expansion content as you choose, and can even stay within the content for the entirety of your level-up experience.
      Exploring Dungeons
      While using the Dungeon Finder (hotkey: I), you'll be offered dungeons for your selected timeline to keep the exploration of the zone’s story intact. However, if you join a group and different characters have chosen different timelines, you'll be able to enter the queue for dungeons from any timeline represented by the party. If the queue for dungeons within the timeline you’ve chosen takes too long to find a suitable group, you’ll be offered to expand the search to other timelines.
      Timewalking Campaigns are available for you to use as soon as your character reaches level 10 or completes the new starting experience, Exile’s Reach. Now, go forth in your journey—your future is waiting for you in the past!

      Battle for Azeroth is over, and we are taking a final look at how tanks and healers ranked in Mythic+ during the final week!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather all data.
      Total Runs Recorded
      We are first looking at the total runs recorded for each specialization that we filter down to find out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations in the subsequent sections of this article.
      Most Popular Tanks for Mythic+
      1st: Protection Paladin - 644,782 runs 2nd: Vengeance Demon Hunter - 398,483 runs 3rd: Brewmaster Monk - 320,971 runs 4th: Blood Death Knight - 310,136 runs 5th: Protection Warrior - 266,016 runs 6th: Guardian Druid - 228,635 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta kicks in at around Keystone 16+, where most specializations lose their share of representation to the meta classes.

      Share of Tank Specializations in Weekly Top 6,000 Runs
      Here is a sample of the top 500 runs for each dungeon (6,000 total keys) each week. We then count the number of times each spec appears in this weekly top 500 sample. Spec numbers go up and down each week as a result of the Tyrannical/Fortified split.

      Most Popular Healers for Mythic+
      1st: Restoration Druid - 645,537 runs 2nd: Restoration Shaman - 412,500 runs 3rd: Discipline Priest: 359,561 runs 4th: Holy Paladin - 273,054 runs 5th: Mistweaver Monk - 238,220 runs 6th: Holy Paladin - 234,232 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance

      Forlorn's Grace is a buff obtained at the Court of Harvesters in Revendreth that increases your damage instead of decreasing it as it says on the tooltip, resulting in a +10% damage buff. 
      Rextroy made a short video on a buff that's supposed to decrease your damage done by 2% per stack, but instead, it increases it on live servers.
      The buff stacks up to 5 times, resulting in a 10% damage buff. Rextroy hopes this will get fixed before Castle Nathria opens.
      Rextroy also made a short video about the buff that you can watch below.

      Reddit user Daywing77 noticed a fun Hearthstone easter egg in Shadowlands.
      We see two mobs sitting on the ground, playing Hearthstone. They are located in Revendreth. It's really soothing to know that you can play your favorite Blizzard games even in the afterlife.
