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 Subtlety Rogue, 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.

1.

Introduction: Legendaries in Shadowlands

Legendary Powers are special effects that you add onto items through Runecarving. The Legendary powers enhance your class gameplay in different ways and some of them are spec-specific while some are class-specific. On this page, we will go through the best ones for all types of content. Please refer to our Rogue Legendary Powers page and our Runecarving page for more information about these powers.

Best Legendaries for Subtlety Rogues

After completing Chapter 7 of the new campaign in Patch 9.2, you will get access to Unity Icon Unity, allowing you to use your Covenant specific Legendary along with a regular one. Note that if you are Revered with the Enlightened, you can craft your Unity Icon Unity on any slot.

2.1.

What Slots to Craft Legendaries On

Obedience Icon Obedience is the best single-target and AoE Legendary for Venthyr Subtlety Rogues. Craft it on Cloak or Helm depending on your tier pieces.

Resounding Clarity Icon Resounding Clarity is the best single-target Legendary for Kyrian Subtlety Rogues. Craft it on Waist.

Akaari's Soul Fragment Icon Akaari's Soul Fragment is the best single-target Legendary Subtlety Rogues. Craft it on Helm or Gloves depending on what tier pieces you have.

Finality Icon Finality is the best option for AoE situations. Craft it on Chest or Cloak depending on what tier pieces you have.

Best Raiding Legendaries for Subtlety Rogue

If you do not see a specific Legendary on this list, it is safe to assume it is worse than the other alternatives.

  1. Obedience Icon Obedience is the best Legendary for Venthyr Subtlety Rogues.
  2. Resounding Clarity Icon Resounding Clarity is the best single-target Legendary for Kyrian Subtlety Rogues
  3. Toxic Onslaught Icon Toxic Onslaught is the best single-target Legendary for Night Fae Subtlety Rogues
  4. Finality Icon Finality is the best choice for most situations that are not pure single-target.
  5. Akaari's Soul Fragment Icon Akaari's Soul Fragment is the best Legendary on single-target for Necrolord Subtlety Rogues.

Best Mythic+ and Torghast Legendaries for Subtlety Rogue

If you do not see a specific Legendary on this list, it is safe to assume it is worse than the other alternatives.

  1. Finality Icon Finality is the best choice for sustained AoE, whilst also being the second best single-target Legendary.
  2. Mark of the Master Assassin Icon Mark of the Master Assassin is arguably the best option for overall damage in Mythic+, but as single-target is also very important, we still recommend Finality over Mark of the Master Assassin. This Legendary is very good in Torghast as the encounters are very short.
  3. Essence of Bloodfang Icon Essence of Bloodfang is solid for cleave situations with few targets, but is generally worse than the other options. The sustain you get from it can be nice in Torghast.

Covenant Specific Legendaries

  • Obedience Icon Obedience is the Venthyr-specific Legendary. This Legendary is the best Legendary for Venthyr Subtlety Rogues and you should aim to craft it as soon as possible on your Back slot.
  • Resounding Clarity Icon Resounding Clarity is the Kyrian-specific Legendary. This Legendary is the best single-target Legendary for Kyrian Subtlety Rogues and you should aim to craft it as soon as possible on your Waist slot.
  • Deathspike Icon Deathspike is the Necrolord-specific Legendary. This Legendary has practically no uses in the current iteration as it provides very little AoE damage and even less single-target.
  • Toxic Onslaught Icon Toxic Onslaught is the Night Fae-specific Legendary. This Legendary is the best single-target option for Night Fae Subtlety Rogues and you should aim to craft it as soon as possible on your Legs slot.
