General Information

Legendary Powers are targetable, unique effects that you can imbue certain base items with through the Runecarving system. In Shadowlands, these enable you to customize your Frost Death Knight, drastically improving your performance, and are arguably the most important aspect of your gear.

The purpose of this page is to help you pick the right legendary powers (and item slots for them) for your character, depending on the content you are interested in.


Introduction: Legendaries in Shadowlands

One of the new parts of Shadowlands is that you will gain the ability to craft legendaries through Runecarving. Runecarving becomes available to you as you progress through Torghast. You gain legendary powers through different gameplay sources, and once you obtain them you can craft your own legendary. Each of these legendaries will boost the power of your character in a specific way, however you can only wear 1 legendary item at a time. This guide will go over each legendary effect to help you make the choice a lot easier.
