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 Retribution Paladin, 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

Legendary Powers are special effects affixed to crafted items in the Shadowlands (through Runecarving). Most of these effects have benefits that are specific to your spec, and others work for all Paladin specs. On this page, we will go through the best ones for all types of content. Please refer to our Paladin Legendary Powers page and our Runecarving page for more information about these powers.


Equip Two Retribution Paladin Legendaries in Patch 9.2

With the addition of the Unity Icon Unity power obtained through the Patch 9.2 campaign in Zereth Mortis, all Retribution Paladins will automatically gain the effect of their Covenant Legendary power. This allows any other Legendary to be used at the same time, typically Final Verdict Icon Final Verdict in single-target raid content, Relentless Inquisitor Icon Relentless Inquisitor in cleave situations and Mythic+ dungeons. The previously used Tempest of the Lightbringer Icon Tempest of the Lightbringer is now a easily obtainable talent, so we do not need to equip it for Mythic+ dungeons and cleave situations.

When crafting the Legendaries, you can choose two secondary stats to grant them using missives. Haste and Mastery are safe stats to craft for both raiding and Mythic+.
