Best Legendaries for Tank Specs in Shadowlands Patch 9.0.5
Best Blood Death Knight Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Blood Death Knight Legendary is Supersforzo or Arma Runica Cremisi.
9.0.2 had a single real choice of legendary for Castle Nathria and 9.0.5 looks no different, with Supersforzo
providing a healthy amount of additional damage and Runic Power over time, scaling slightly off target count.Arma Runica Cremisi
could prove to be an appealing pick on some encounters, particularly the ones with constant tanking uptime (Altimor, Sludgefist, SLG, Council of Blood, Inerva Darkvein, and Denathrius to an extent). It really does require at least one target meleeing you nearly constantly to beat Supersforzo
For Mythic+, the best Blood Death Knight Legendary is Arma Runica Cremisi or Supersforzo.
9.0.5 will likely see a swap to Arma Runica Cremisi
; unlike raids, tanking uptime is virtually guaranteed, making the cooldown reduction (and therefore incidental rune gains from casting Arma Runica Danzante
more often) much more impactful.
An additional perk of this is the ability to have a major defensive and offensive hybrid CD running for every
pull, instead of every other pull, thanks to this legendary. This may be strong enough to also open up some minor route changes to take advantage of this. Supersforzo
remains a very valid option, but lacks on the defensive front compared to Arma Runica Cremisi
Best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary is Anima Ardente.
remains the strongest legendary for progression raiding, with Profanazione di Razelikh
for Kyrian and Giudizio dell'Arbiter
for other covenants being the highest damage for farm content. None of our legendaries offer a substantial DPS boost, while Anima Ardente
provides a massive survivability increase. None of the changes to legendaries in 9.0.5 have any major effect outside of Dono Lumenero
, but despite the doubling of its proc rate from 20% to 40% and refund on Fury, it remains behind in overall damage and is less reliable for survivability due to the randomness.
For Mythic+, the best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary is Anima Ardente.
is now the strongest legendary for Mythic+ due to the extreme amount of survivability needed. While DPS legendaries are nice and can help time a key, currently the damage profiles in keystones are high enough that they require kiting. Anima Ardente
allows us to stay in longer, providing a larger DPS increase for the group before we need to kite away, as well as giving us a cooldown for the vast majority of tankbusters on bosses and difficult trash pulls. Similar to the raid situation, none of the legendary changes particularly affect the rankings. Dono Lumenero
gets a bigger boost here due to the powerful effects of Metamorfosi Demoniaca
, but it is still a less reliable option.
Best Guardian Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Guardian Druid Legendary is Rinomata Furia di Ursoc, Fiasca del Focus Profondo or Volontà dell'Ordine Naturale.
For Mythic+, the best Guardian Druid Legendary is Rinomata Furia di Ursoc.
Overall, this is the most valuable legendary, giving us that nice damage boost while also helping boost our self sustain so we don't have to waste valuable Rigenerazione Furiosa
charges on trickle damage. Also has the added benefit of letting us pull off some very impressive pulls when coupled with Incarnazione: Guardiano di Ursoc
Best Brewmaster Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Brewmaster Monk Legendary is Ultimo Barilotto di Triplo Malto.
Ultimo Barilotto di Triplo Malto
is the best all-around defensive option for raiding Brewmaster Monks, as it provides the most consistent blend of damage and defensive value. It makes the rotation simpler and more flexible, which makes handling mechanics less punishing. Passioni Carbonizzate
is a superior option for dealing single-target DPS, and it’s a great choice for players who are on farm, or who are not being challenged defensively by a given fight, but it makes the rotation considerably less elastic, and thus is not as reliable of a defensive option. You have options, but Ultimo Barilotto di Triplo Malto
is generally going to be the best choice.
For Mythic+, the best Brewmaster Monk Legendary is Ultimo Barilotto di Triplo Malto.
Ultimo Barilotto di Triplo Malto
is the best all-around defensive option for Brewmaster Monks in Mythic+. It provides the most consistent defensive value, and it is generally the best DPS option in Mythic+ trash pulls, which are typically shorter than raid fights and have a much higher mob count. It also makes the rotation simpler and more flexible, which makes handling mechanics -- or kiting difficult trash packs -- that much less punishing. Ultimately, it’s the easiest and strongest choice, and that’s a winning combination.
Best Protection Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Protection Paladin Legendary is Giudizio del Magistrato or Eletto Pazzo.
For raid, the best defensive legendary is Giudizio del Magistrato
. It increases the value of your Giudizio
, a spell that is cast very often, in terms of Holy Power gain. It adds a lot of flexibility because it makes it easier to maintain Scudo del Virtuoso
while having very high self-sustain with more Parola di Gloria
casts. It is a proc so there is some randomness involved, however over a longer raid encounter, it will average out and provide a significant survivability gain.
On the offensive side, the best legendary is Eletto Pazzo
. It powers up one of your Martello dell'Ira
and allows you to extend Ira Vendicatrice
for a longer duration. It has great synergy with Protettore Virtuoso
allowing for more uptime on Ira Vendicatrice
overall. It especially shines for single target or priority damage which are very important in raiding.
For Mythic+, the best Protection Paladin Legendary is Baluardo della Giusta Furia or Sigillo Inciso del Vendicatore Sacro.
For M+, the best offensive legendary item is Baluardo della Giusta Furia
. Scudo del Virtuoso
is now a larger part of the AOE damage kit and buffing it even more can provide significant results. Since Scudo del Virtuoso
has higher uptime and is pressed way more often, this legendary really shines in Mythic+.
On the utility or defensive side, the best legendary is Sigillo Inciso del Vendicatore Sacro
. It will give you more Holy Power, extra interrupts which can be useful in some dungeons, and some smoothing from Primo Vendicatore
absorbs. It's just an all-around solid legendary that can provide versatility that might shine more in a dungeon than in a raid.
Best Protection Warrior Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Protection Warrior Legendary is Rappresaglia.
has remained the most-popular Protection Warrior Legendary in Castello di Nathria
, but its time in the limelight looks to be ending. The newly-revamped Rappresaglia
offers a massive increase in Scudo Saldo
uptime, free Rivincita
procs, and extra Rage. It’s a sure-fire frontrunner for most bosses in Castle Nathria, with the only possible exception being Sludgefist, who is not amenable to moving out of melee range and charging back in. It’s a great source of player power, and will become a go-to option for Protection Warriors in raids.
For Mythic+, the best Protection Warrior Legendary is Rappresaglia.
has risen in popularity in Mythic+, rivalling Spaccatuono
in terms of popularity recently. Both options still hold a lot of value, but are getting eclipsed by the newly-revamped Rappresaglia
grants a major increase to Scudo Saldo
uptime, free Rivincita
procs, and extra Rage. It’s a sure-fire frontrunner for nearly any tanking situation, and it’s absolutely going to become the go-to option for Mythic+ pushing Protection Warriors.
Best Legendary for Healer Specs in Shadowlands Patch 9.0.5
Best Restoration Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Restoration Druid Legendary is Visione della Crescita Eterna.
For Mythic+, the best Restoration Druid Legendary is Lezione del Titano Oscuro (Healing), Infusione Verdeggiante (Healing), or Circolo della Vita e della Morte (Damage).
Best Mistweaver Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Mistweaver Monk Legendary is Antichi Insegnamenti del Monastero.
While there were no updates to the legendaries with 9.0.5, I did want to update the recommendation of the current best legendary. Previously, Lacrima del Mattino
was recommended, and it is still a very solid choice, however, with the current dominance of Fistweaving as a playstyle, pairing this with Antichi Insegnamenti del Monastero
is a no brainer. You gain a solid amount of passive healing for casting Calcio del Sole Nascente
which you would have been doing anyway. You will generally be running Nebbia Crescente
also, so again, there is a large amount of synergy with the playstyle.
For Mythic+, the best Mistweaver Monk Legendary is Antichi Insegnamenti del Monastero.
Again, similar to the raiding updates above, I am switching the recommendation from Lacrima del Mattino
to Antichi Insegnamenti del Monastero
for Patch 9.0.5. While there were no changes to the legendaries in this patch, the way that Mistweavers have adapted to Shadowlands and the healing pushes us more towards the Fistweaving playstyle. As such, you will want to focus on a legendary that best compliments this style. For that, Antichi Insegnamenti del Monastero
is the clear choice.
Best Holy Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Holy Paladin Legendary is Barriera Folgorante.
is the best healing legendary, it simply does more healing than everything else due to our play style revolving so heavily around Folgore Sacra
. Absorbs are also very effective, due to their low overhealing.
For Mythic+, the best Holy Paladin Legendary is Barriera Folgorante (Healing) or Eletto Pazzo (Damage).
for healing, as you can reliably have the absorb up on all of your group while healing. However using Eletto Pazzo
for damage, especially if you are Venthyr is a good option as well due to its damage contribution.
Best Discipline Priest Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Discipline Priest Legendary is Lucidità Mentale.
For Mythic+, the best Discipline Priest Legendary is Gemelli delle Sacerdotesse del Sole.
Gemelli delle Sacerdotesse del Sole
allows you to share your Infusione di Potere
while still benefitting from the buff yourself, this can be especially helpful as you start a pull as that will often be when you cast it on an ally. You can use this bonus haste to stabilize the tank, multi-dot with Epurazione dal Male
or contribute additional damage. It is a flexible legendary that incentivizes you to share your resources with others.
Best Holy Priest Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid and Mythic+, the best Holy Priest Legendary is Concentrazione Rapida.
For 9.0.5 the Best Holy Priest Legendary for Raiding and Mythic+ is Concentrazione Rapida
. Honorable mention to Apparato Armonioso
which can still have a place, especially for those looking for a lower-maintenance playstyle. Concentrazione Rapida
grants a substantial healing bonus to Cura
which has good synergy with your conduit in Parole Risonanti
and your talent in Scia di Luce
. With the most recent buff in increasing Concentrazione Rapida
's duration to 20 seconds from 15, this will reduce excess mana expenditure on Cura Rapida
's and increase the likelihood that you'll have the free Cura Rapida
s from Eruzione di Luce
to refresh the duration for free. It also makes it easier to maintain on boss encounters with high movement, once again saving you mana that you would have to spend if the buff dropped. Concentrazione Rapida
is a must in higher level dungeons to more steadily contribute high and efficient throughput to your Mythic+ team. Tanks are still generally weak relative to the enemy forces in dungeons and as a result will require a lot of throughput to sustain. The more healing you can pour into your tank, the less they have to kite and the more effective ground-based AoE damage like a Mage's Pozza delle Fiamme
are, killing enemies more rapidly. When it comes to healing Orgoglio
, you'll be healing your allies unevenly with Concentrazione Rapida
but still very efficiently, allowing you to heal up to higher stacks more easily and for longer.
Best Restoration Shaman Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Restoration Shaman Legendary is Nucleo della Marea Primordiale.
For Mythic+, the best Restoration Shaman Legendary is Totem della Marea dello Spiritista.
Best Legendaries for DPS Specs in Shadowlands Patch 9.0.5
Best Frost Death Knight Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Frost Death Knight Legendary is Favore di Koltira or Rabbia del Campione Ghiacciato.
In a raid setting, Favore di Koltira
is generally the best choice. It's best in single target which is also your main concern in Raid. Rabbia del Campione Ghiacciato
is also a potential choice, especially in cleave scenarios such as Huntsman and Stone Legion Generals.
For Mythic+, the best Frost Death Knight Legendary is Rabbia del Campione Ghiacciato or Freddo Pungente.
Best Unholy Death Knight Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Unholy Death Knight Legendary is Spira Letale.
For Mythic+, the best Unholy Death Knight Legendary is Mostruosità Frenetica.
For Mythic+, Mostruosità Frenetica
is the best choice in essentially every scenario. It brings really good single target burst (almost as high as Spira Letale
), as well as big AoE damage increase. It's on-demand, impactful and versatile. Can't really ask for more.
Best Havoc Demon Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Havoc Demon Hunter Legendary is Ferita Bruciante.
The recent 9.0.5 buffs really pushed Ferita Bruciante
to the top of the charts in single-target damage. The legendary scales extremely well in raid encounters with adds spawning as you can simply target new adds and Morso del Demone
them to spread the DoT on as many target as you want making our cleave even stronger.
For Mythic+, the best Havoc Demon Hunter Legendary is Ferita Bruciante or Dono Lumenero.
Similarly to raiding, Ferita Bruciante
is our best single-target legendary but it scales extremely well with multiple targets which is great for M+ overall damage distribution as it helps our weakness (ST damage) the most while also providing a significant cleave bonus. Dono Lumenero
will outscale Ferita Bruciante
if you are doing large quick pulls as you would simply not have the AoE be alive long enough for you to apply Ferita Bruciante
to all the targets and tick long enough on them.
Best Balance Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Balance Druid Legendary is Equilibrio di Tutte le Cose.
For Mythic+, the best Balance Druid Legendary is Equilibrio di Tutte le Cose or Pulsazione Arcanica Primordiale.
Best Feral Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Feral Druid Legendary is Fiasca del Focus Profondo.
The legendary buffs are more reasonable however not by enough to change your legendary choices realistically. For raiding Fiasca del Focus Profondo
will continue to reign supreme on any single target fights, by a large margin. For fights where you can't use Fiasca del Focus Profondo
however the legendary changes might be relevant. If you can't use Fiasca del Focus Profondo
then the next few legendaries are all very close with some niche advantages between them, Circolo della Vita e della Morte
is the best AOE legendary among them, Bramosia del Grande Predatore
shines when you can funnel into one big target, Frenesia
with the buffs could potentially be good however for the most part the Cooldown Reduction portion of the legendary isn't significant enough to really matter at all, which leaves Ninnolo Occhio Felino
without it's own niche, realistically rendering it null (unless you really want to use it i guess)
For Mythic+, the best Feral Druid Legendary is Circolo della Vita e della Morte.
Best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary is Zanne Perforanti del Predatore di Rylak or Braci della Forgia dell'Anima.
For Mythic+, the best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary is Braci della Forgia dell'Anima.
Even with the new buffs to other legendaries, Braci della Forgia dell'Anima
is still going to be the best legendary for dungeons. The low cooldowns of Trappola di Pece
mean that you have an excellent burst setup ready for every pull you do inside a dungeon, as well as solid sustained single target damage. Braci della Forgia dell'Anima
should be at its weakest on single target, but is still among the best, and only gets better when you add in more targets, making this a very easy choice at the moment for which legendary to take first if you value M+ dungeons. It is worth noting that Zanne Perforanti del Predatore di Rylak
is an excellent alternative, and although it is slightly weaker for dungeons, does have a significantly easier playstyle.
Best Marksmanship Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Marksmanship Hunter Legendary is Astuzia dell'Inseguitore di Serpenti.
For Mythic+, the best Marksmanship Hunter Legendary is Tiri Crescenti or Astuzia dell'Inseguitore di Serpenti.
Best Survival Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Survival Hunter Legendary is Apparato da Bracconaggio di Nesingwary.
9.0.5 changes are extremely underwhelming seeing how the buff was too far too weak (especially compared to the magnitude of the buffs received by BM legendaries), and changes absolutely nothing, as the legendary rankings and usefulness remains completely unchanged.Apparato da Bracconaggio di Nesingwary
is the best option on single target, as it offers a lot of focus, which is far more important for survival than for other two specs. However Braci della Forgia dell'Anima
is close to its effectiveness once you start doing AoE heavy encounters, and is a good "safe" choice for multiple types of content. Fascio di Fuocobrado
is another easier option. Iniettori di Veleno Latente
remains bad and not close to competitive despite the recent buff.
For Mythic+, the best Survival Hunter Legendary is Fascio di Fuocobrado or Braci della Forgia dell'Anima.
When it comes to Mythic+ Fascio di Fuocobrado
is currently the best performing one, however Braci della Forgia dell'Anima
is close to it, when it comes to damage, and depending on damage patterns (AoE duration, number of targets, downtime between pulls) it might even have a chance of pulling ahead. As such Embers will be a good "safe" choice for multiple types of content.
Best Arcane Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Arcane Mage Legendary is Distorsione Temporale.
For Mythic+, the best Arcane Mage Legendary is Bombardamento Arcano.
Best Fire Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Fire Mage Legendary is Comando Disciplinare.
For damage, Fire's best overall Legendary is Comando Disciplinare
due to the 5% Critical Strike damage buff made in 9.0.5. Incantamento Febbrile
is a very close second. Comando Disciplinare
grants a Critical strike damage increase after casting a spell of each school that lasts 20 seconds, on a 30 second cooldown. Activate on cooldown unless Combustione
is coming off cooldown soon. Dardo di Gelo
and Esplosione Gelida
are the best spells to use to trigger the Frost component. Keep in mind that the Runa del Potere
that auto-casts with Combustione
also counts. Since Distintivo della Ferocia del Gladiatore Peccatore
is flagged as being from the Arcane School, it also works to trigger the arcane component. If these are unavailable, you can also use Luccichio
, or Esplosione Arcana
. This is a very strong single target and AoE legendary. With the buff in 9.0.5, this is now our best.Incantamento Febbrile
is a close second in most situations. Incantamento Febbrile
is much less of a hassle than Comando Disciplinare
, but behind it by about 3% in AoE and Single Target. Incantamento Febbrile
significantly improves the value of Critical Strike, usually bringing it up to the value of Haste and Versatility. If you are building this legendary, I recommend building it with Critical Strike and Haste.
For Mythic+, the best Fire Mage Legendary is Comando Disciplinare.
For all the same reasons listed above, Comando Disciplinare
is the best Legendary for Fire Mages in Mythic+ as well as Raid. In Mythic+ it will be up for the start of every pull, but it does require additional considerations since it is possible to proc it out of combat by using Frost Utility spells. Incantamento Febbrile
is very close behind, and might be worth running in some cases where the additional considerations for Comando Disciplinare
aren't worth the hassle.
Best Frost Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Frost Mage Legendary is Ghiaccio Scivoloso for single-target, Venti Gelidi for 2-3 targets, or Frammenti Glaciali for 3 or more targets.
For Mythic+, the best Frost Mage Legendary is Venti Gelidi or Frammenti Glaciali depending on the average pull size.
Cleave and AoE dominate Mythic+, so we want to pick a legendary favouring that. Venti Gelidi
or Frammenti Glaciali
are going to be our go-to options since they both excel with cleave and AoE. Venti Gelidi
was already performing well in higher keys or dungeons with lower average pull sizes, but the buff coming in 9.0.5 I believe it will become the standard. Frammenti Glaciali
is still very strong where the average pull size is much higher. Ghiaccio Scivoloso
deals great single-target damage, but is terrible outside of that niche, so not worth considering for M+.
Best Windwalker Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid and Mythic+, the best Windwalker Monk Legendary is Delizia dell'Invocatore.
Best Retribution Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Retribution Paladin Legendary is Verdetto Finale for single-target, Tempesta dell'Araldo della Luce for AoE, or generically Giudizio del Magistrato / Eletto Pazzo.
For Mythic+, the best Retribution Paladin Legendary is Tempesta dell'Araldo della Luce, Giudizio del Magistrato, or Eletto Pazzo.
Best Shadow Priest Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Shadow Priest Legendary is Stratagemma di Talbadar.
Shadow’s strongest legendary in Raid looks to continue to be Stratagemma di Talbadar
due to its superiority in single target encounters. The recent buffs to Prisma d'Ombrofuoco
have given Shadow options when it comes to legendaries to use in multi-target encounters, but the lack of relevant multi-target damage in Castle Nathria means it's unlikely to see much use outside of specific fights. Time will tell though, and Prisma d'Ombrofuoco
will be a good choice if a fight ever calls for stacked cleave or 2-3 target AoE.
Honourable mention goes to Gemelli delle Sacerdotesse del Sole
for its contributions to raid dps during specific burst windows, but not to the Shadow Priest as an individual. This legendary’s value and popularity has fallen off as Castle Nathria has gone on, but it still finds its uses here and there, and is likely to continue to in future.
For Mythic+, the best Shadow Priest Legendary is Prisma d'Ombrofuoco.
Best Assassination Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Assassination Rogue Legendary is Lama Spietata.
With the buffs to Lama Spietata
, that legendary is taking a top spot in single target damage contribution. The bleed was buffed a fair bit and an armor reduction bug fixed. In case you are Necrolord, you get a bonus on top since the Affondo Venefico
bonus increases with Aculeo Osseo Seghettato
. I'd say Lama Spietata
is a great raid pick, however, our old favorite Fregio di Zoldyck
still stays as something that is worth having in the bags due to being more situationally agnostic and giving a bonus for execute phases.
For Mythic+, the best Assassination Rogue Legendary is Fregio di Zoldyck.
In dungeons, the top legendaries all look very close numerically and can depend on preference, affixes, and pull sizes or durations. Fregio di Zoldyck
is possibly the best general option that looks strong. That said, Marchio del Maestro Assassino
is a good pick if you can get a lot of restealths and the two single target focused legendaries Lama Spietata
and Farabutto Ardito
aren't bad at all either.
Best Outlaw Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Outlaw Rogue Legendary is Fluidità.
Despite 9.0.5 buffs to legendaries below it closing some gaps, Fluidità
stays the unbeaten best legendary for every situation. Outlaw Rogues won't really have to look at doing any gearing adjustments and can instead look into multi-spec options if they want to do so.
For Mythic+, the best Outlaw Rogue Legendary is Fluidità.
continues to be the strongest legendary in any situation. In dungeons, Marchio del Maestro Assassino
can be considered a solid bursty alternative if you can restealth very often though. (On that front, please note that the crit bonus was changed in 9.0.5 to only affect class abilities, it does not work with Necrotic Wake weapons anymore.)
Best Subtlety Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Subtlety Rogue Legendary is Atto Finale.
9.0.5 does not change anything for Subtlety Rogues when it comes to what legendaries are good in what situation. Atto Finale
is the best all-rounder and strong in any situation. Frammento d'Anima di Akaari
can beat it slightly in pure single target situations as an alternative.
For Mythic+, the best Subtlety Rogue Legendary is Atto Finale.
For Subtlety, Atto Finale
will continue to be a great option in any situation and thus my recommendation. That said, in dungeons where you can restealth fairly often, Marchio del Maestro Assassino
is a solid and bursty alternative worth carrying in your bags.
Best Elemental Shaman Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Elemental Shaman Legendary is Rinascita di Lava dell'Oratore del Vento.
For Mythic+, the best Elemental Shaman Legendary is Disfatta Ardente della Spaccacieli or Echi della Grande Separazione.
Best Enhancement Shaman Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Enhancement Shaman Legendary is Venti del Fato.
Your Legendary selection is one of the most important factors for Enhancement currently, because of how significant some of the gains are. As it stands, Venti del Fato
is unlikely to fall off because the landscape of Castello di Nathria
loves both cleave, burst AoE and burst single target, and no other choice holds a candle to it in those situations despite it losing out to some picks in overall sustained damage metrics.
The important thing to note is while only one Legendary effect was manually touched, the buff to Sferzata Lavica
has a significantly higher value for certain picks compared to others. As it stands going into 9.0.5 then, a breakdown of all of the spec-specific choices is:Ossa di Lupo del Taumaturgo
- for sustained single-target this gained a lot from Sferzata Lavica
buffs with a full suite of supporting picks in Pugno di Magma
, Mano Ardente
, and Spiriti Elementali
has a real chance to break out in future encounters that are less focused on burst windows - one to look out for.Attuatori della Lava Primordiale - has a good chance to get some use, but it's always going to be a niche case for funnel fights which are often few and far between, and it sacrifices a lot to make use of.Retaggio della Megera del Gelo - doubling the damage increase to Assalto della Tempesta is still not enough to make this compete, and it has no mechanical advantage to exploit relative to other choices so as it stands right now, is still bottom of the pile sadly.
For Mythic+, the best Enhancement Shaman Legendary is Venti del Fato.
Best Affliction Warlock Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Affliction Warlock Legendary is Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca.
The only real recommendation for pure raiding at the moment is Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca
. While it might not be the top overall damage increase on some of the more aoe-focused fight, this legendary doubles down on what affliction's raid strength is - focused single target damage.
For Mythic+, the best Affliction Warlock Legendary is Ira Malefica, Agonia Perpetua di Azj'aqir or Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca.
Realistically, for Mythic+ it's going to be a tossup between the same three mentioned at the start of the guide. will be the best for single target and focused single target damage, Agonia Perpetua di Azj'aqir
will be the best for general aoe damage, and Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca
will be a middle ground between the first two. Look at the composition of the group you'll be playing with most often and make your choice based off of that.
Best Demonology Warlock Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Demonology Warlock Legendary is Sigillo di Wilfred dell'Evocazione Superiore or Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca.
For Mythic+, the best Demonology Warlock Legendary is Forze dell'Incubo Cornuto, Sigillo di Wilfred dell'Evocazione Superiore, Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca, Potenziale Implosivo, or Evocazione del Terrore dell'Inquisitore Tetro.
Legendaries again remain the same as previous depending on the weekly affix, you shouldn't feel pidgeon holed into one or the other.
- Forze dell'Incubo Cornuto: A flat chance to duplicate your previous Mano di Gul'dan is strong for multiple reasons; firstly it is just a free cast of damage in AoE, secondly it also duplicates the number of imps summoned which funnels damage to your Evocazione: Tiranno Demoniaco, Implosione and overall Wild Imp damage.
- Sigillo di Wilfred dell'Evocazione Superiore: The pacing of most Mythic+ in Shadowlands is such that having (on average) a 60 second Evocazione: Tiranno Demoniaco cast is quite strong. Being able to constantly use your major cooldown as a source of damage on the majority of trash pulls and still have it available for the boss is very impactful.
- Reliquia della Sinergia Demoniaca: This legendary has a very high uptime on both you and your Felguard despite it being listed at 3PPM. A flat 15% damage increase doesn't have any major downsides especially with such a high uptime. If you don't want to really focus on tracking anything this would be the best option for you in M+.
- Potenziale Implosivo: 5% Haste per imploded Imp is quite significant in M+ where most packs will be 4-5+ mobs and your primary AoE is Implosione you will be cruising with essentially a free 20-25% Haste buff for all trash. The minor Haste bonus you can squeeze out of it on bosses also still provides some benefit for you even though this legendary is primarily an AoE option.
- Evocazione del Terrore dell'Inquisitore Tetro: The 1% buff to this legendary has made it quite relevant for M+ especially when paired with Sferzata del Terrore giving your Richiamo Inseguitore Maligno the ability to AoE with amplified damage.
Best Destruction Warlock Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Destruction Warlock Legendary is Braci degli Azj'aqir.
Braci degli Azj'aqir
is one of the few legendaries that actually changes the way you're playing your character, and it's definitely for the better! More Conflagrazione
casts means more Ritorno di Fiamma
stacks, making the spec faster and more fun to play. Another viable option is Sigillo di Wilfred dell'Evocazione Superiore
allowing you to have your Summon Infernal on a significantly lower cooldown, potentially pairing up better with certain encounters and other cooldowns or trinkets
For Mythic+, the best Destruction Warlock Legendary is Sigillo di Wilfred dell'Evocazione Superiore.
With the changes made to the Destruction Warlock talent tree in Shadowlands, we now have multiple strong talents we can combine to make a very powerful setup for Mythic+. This is furthermore empowered by Sigillo di Wilfred dell'Evocazione Superiore
. A lot of the power of Destruction lies in our Evocazione: Infernale
cooldown. The combination of these new talents allowing you to generate and spend even more shards than before, combined with the reduced cooldown of Infernal makes for an extremely strong burst spec.
Best Arms Warrior Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Arms Warrior Legendary is Anello con Sigillo dei Re Tormentati for Venthyr or Colpo Duraturo for other Covenants.
For Mythic+, the best Arms Warrior Legendary is Anello con Sigillo dei Re Tormentati.
Best Fury Warrior Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Fury Warrior Legendary is Anello con Sigillo dei Re Tormentati, followed closely by Portatore di Morte.
For Mythic+, the best Fury Warrior Legendary is Anello con Sigillo dei Re Tormentati.
