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

Best Overall Legendary for Windwalker Monk

This is basically our recommendation for which Legendary to craft first as a PvE player that does a variety of content. It is simply the best Legendary if you could only ever craft one.

Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight is currently the best Legendary for all content for any Windwalker Monks who are Kyrian or Necrolord. The synergy it provides with our other burst windows is perfect, and although Haste is typically not a great stat for Windwalker Monk, the large quantity of it at the time that we get the most use out of it makes this a very powerful Legendary to use.

Windwalker Monks who are Night Fae should use Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony for all content, as this provides the largest increase of damage for anyone using this Covenant.

Best Raiding Legendaries for Windwalker Monk

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony for all Night Fae Windwalkers.
  2. Sinister Teachings Icon Sinister Teachings for all Venthyr Windwalkers.
  3. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight wins for all content and will be chosen for pretty much any fight in the raid and Mythic Plus for Kyrian and Necrolord.
4.

Best Mythic+ and Torghast Legendaries for Windwalker Monk

This section covers the best Mythic+ and Torghast Legendaries. For this evaluation, we are considering a mix of AoE and single-target, but with a bias towards AoE. As you will see, the best AoE Legendaries are not necessarily the best Mythic+ Legendaries, as you will need to do both at least decently well to be viable in Mythic+.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony for all Night Fae Windwalkers.
  2. Sinister Teachings Icon Sinister Teachings for all Venthyr Windwalkers.
  3. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight wins for all content and will be chosen for pretty much any fight in the raid and Mythic Plus for Kyrian and Necrolord.
5.

New Legendaries in Patch 9.1 for Windwalker Monk

The whole Monk class received 4 new Covenant-specific Legendaries. These Legendaries are only available to Monks of a certain Covenant. Their effects are universal, meaning that they are not specific to any Monk spec.
