Monk Legendary Powers and Armor in Shadowlands (9.2)

Last updated on Feb 20, 2022 at 15:45 by Stan 7 comments

An overview of Monk Legendary Powers and Armor available in Shadowlands.


Monk 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 Monk-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.
