The following guide deals with Legendary Powers in Shadowlands.


Patch 9.1.0 Legendary Power Changes

Many Legendary Powers have been updated in Patch 9.1. All classes gain 4 new Covenant-Specific Legendary Powers in the Chains of Domination content update. You can find all that and more by reading through the individual class changes.



Welcome to our guide to Legendary Powers in Shadowlands. The following guide serves as a hub for all Legendary Powers in the new expansion.

If you would like to learn more about creating Legendary Armor, check out our Runecarving guide.



We divide Legendary powers into general, available to all classes and class-specific, available to select classes. We further divide class-specific powers into class-wide, available to all specializations within the same class, and specialization-specific, available to just one specialization.


General Legendary Powers

General Legendary Powers are shared between all classes. You can apply them to 3 armor slots.

You can find a list of all general Legendary Powers and their effects in our general guide.


Class-Specific Legendary Powers

Class-specific Legendary Powers are exclusive to a certain class and they can occupy just 2 armor slots.


Where To Collect Legendary Powers?

To craft Legendary Armor, you will need to retrieve specific memories that contain Legendary powers. These memories (or Legendary Power recipes) can be found all over Shadowlands and you can get them from questing, world bosses, dungeon bosses, Castle Nathria raid bosses, Torghast, Shadowlands factions at Honored reputation standing, the Great Vault (weekly chest), from PvP Vendors, and more.

Recipe unlocks are account-wide, including generic powers (e.g. Prydaz or Sephuz-like effects from Legion), so alts will automatically have access to them from the start.

If you bring up the in-game Adventure Journal (Shift+J), you will see a new Powers tab with all Legendary Powers available for your class and where to get it.

You can find more details about Legendary Power sources on the individual pages.
