The following guide covers everything you need to know about Unholy Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.

1.

Unholy Shards of Domination

Patch 9.1 introduces 3 Unholy Shards of Domination to the game. They are unique-equipped, so you cannot equip the same shard twice.

  • Shard of Dyz Icon Shard of Dyz — Damaging a target increases your damage done to the target by 0.25% for 4 seconds, stacking up to 3 times.
  • Shard of Oth Icon Shard of Oth — Your Speed is increased by 30.
  • Shard of Zed Icon Shard of Zed — Your helpful spells and abilities have a chance to grant your target an Unholy Aura, draining 166 health from nearby enemies every 2 seconds for 10 seconds.

We know Shards drop from bosses in the Sanctum of Domination, but Blizzard has not yet put out any information on how exactly that is supposed to work, whether they will be personal loot like Conduits in Castle Nathria, or whether they are actual physical items like relics were in Legion.

Unholy Shards of Domination 3-Set Bonus

You must socket 3 Unholy Shards into your Domination gear to activate Chaos Bane Icon Chaos Bane, a powerful 3-piece set bonus.

  • Chaos Bane Icon Chaos Bane — While inside The Maw or Torghast, your abilities have a chance to drain a Soul Fragment from your target, granting you 10 Primary stat for 30 seconds and stacking up to 15 times. When you reach 15 stacks, unleash Chaos Bane, dealing 1,500 Shadow damage split between nearby enemies and grating you 300 Primary stat for 15 seconds.
