Death Knight Legendary Powers and Armor in Shadowlands

Last updated on Jul 15, 2021 at 10:00 by Stan 6 comments

An overview of Death Knight Legendary Powers and Armor available in Shadowlands.


Death Knight Legendary Armor

Legendary Armor pieces are named after Base Items, so two Legendary Armor pieces will share the same name, but have different Legendary Powers attached to them.

You can find more about crafting Legendary Armor in our Runecarving Guide.

Base Items are blank armor templates that are required to craft Legendary Armor in Shadowlands.

For more information about Base Items, please refer to our Base Items Guide.


General Legendary Powers

In addition to the Death Knight-specific powers presented in this page, there are 8 generic Legendary Powers in Shadowlands that are accessible to all classes. You can find them in our general Legendary Powers Guide.


Death Knight Legendary Powers

We divide Legendary powers into general, available to all classes, class-wide, available to all specializations within the same class, and specialization-specific, available to just one specialization. Legendary powers can only be imbued on Base Items and occupy specific armor slots, as outlined below.
