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 Supercepa or Arma de runas carmesí.
9.0.2 had a single real choice of legendary for Castle Nathria and 9.0.5 looks no different, with Supercepa
providing a healthy amount of additional damage and Runic Power over time, scaling slightly off target count.Arma de runas carmesí
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 Supercepa
For Mythic+, the best Blood Death Knight Legendary is Arma de runas carmesí or Supercepa.
9.0.5 will likely see a swap to Arma de runas carmesí
; unlike raids, tanking uptime is virtually guaranteed, making the cooldown reduction (and therefore incidental rune gains from casting Arma de runa 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. Supercepa
remains a very valid option, but lacks on the defensive front compared to Arma de runas carmesí
Best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary is Alma ígnea.
remains the strongest legendary for progression raiding, with Rapiña de Razelikh
for Kyrian and Dictamen de la Enjuiciadora
for other covenants being the highest damage for farm content. None of our legendaries offer a substantial DPS boost, while Alma ígnea
provides a massive survivability increase. None of the changes to legendaries in 9.0.5 have any major effect outside of Favor de miradaoscura
, 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 Alma ígnea.
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. Alma ígnea
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. Favor de miradaoscura
gets a bigger boost here due to the powerful effects of Metamorfosis
, but it is still a less reliable option.
Best Guardian Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Guardian Druid Legendary is Furia de Ursoc recordada, Jarabe de enfoque profundo or La voluntad del orden natural.
For Mythic+, the best Guardian Druid Legendary is Furia de Ursoc recordada.
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 Regeneración frenética
charges on trickle damage. Also has the added benefit of letting us pull off some very impressive pulls when coupled with Encarnación: Guardián de Ursoc
Best Brewmaster Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Brewmaster Monk Legendary is Último barril de Cerveza de Trueno.
Último barril de Cerveza de Trueno
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. Pasiones carbonizadas
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 Último barril de Cerveza de Trueno
is generally going to be the best choice.
For Mythic+, the best Brewmaster Monk Legendary is Último barril de Cerveza de Trueno.
Último barril de Cerveza de Trueno
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 Sentencia del magistrado or El dechado demente.
For raid, the best defensive legendary is Sentencia del magistrado
. It increases the value of your Sentencia
, 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 Escudo del honrado
while having very high self-sustain with more Palabra de 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 El dechado demente
. It powers up one of your Martillo de cólera
and allows you to extend Cólera vengativa
for a longer duration. It has great synergy with Protector justo
allowing for more uptime on Cólera vengativa
overall. It especially shines for single target or priority damage which are very important in raiding.
For Mythic+, the best Protection Paladin Legendary is Baluarte de furia recta or Sigilo grabado de vengador sagrado.
For M+, the best offensive legendary item is Baluarte de furia recta
. Escudo del honrado
is now a larger part of the AOE damage kit and buffing it even more can provide significant results. Since Escudo del honrado
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 Sigilo grabado de vengador sagrado
. It will give you more Holy Power, extra interrupts which can be useful in some dungeons, and some smoothing from Primer vengador
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 Represalias.
has remained the most-popular Protection Warrior Legendary in Castillo de Nathria
, but its time in the limelight looks to be ending. The newly-revamped Represalias
offers a massive increase in Bloquear con escudo
uptime, free Revancha
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 Represalias.
has risen in popularity in Mythic+, rivalling Señor del Trueno
in terms of popularity recently. Both options still hold a lot of value, but are getting eclipsed by the newly-revamped Represalias
grants a major increase to Bloquear con escudo
uptime, free Revancha
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 Visión del crecimiento infinito.
For Mythic+, the best Restoration Druid Legendary is Lección del Titán Oscuro (Healing), Infusión verdeante (Healing), or El ciclo de vida y muerte (Damage).
When prioritizing only healing in Mythic+, both Lección del Titán Oscuro
and Infusión verdeante
are our strongest options. Lección del Titán Oscuro
is largely due to its overall synergy with Fotosíntesis
as well as the efficiency of Flor de vida
especially when you factor in additional Augurio de claridad
procs. The newly buffed Infusión verdeante
does become a strong single-target healing option especially when double extending Resguardo de Cenarius
though it can be somewhat disruptive when utilizing Alma del bosque
. Unfortunately, neither of these two legendaries really help with our damage output which becomes increasingly more important at high key levels.
If you're prioritizing damage and healing in Mythic+ then you'll likely choose El ciclo de vida y muerte
. The healing on this is actually fairly nice but does come with some efficiency issues due to the reduced duration of the HoTs (and DoTs). From a damage perspective this is a solid sustained damage option as Fuego solar
and Fuego lunar
are a large portion of our damage breakdown.
Best Mistweaver Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Mistweaver Monk Legendary is Enseñanzas ancestrales del monasterio.
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, Lágrima de la mañana
was recommended, and it is still a very solid choice, however, with the current dominance of Fistweaving as a playstyle, pairing this with Enseñanzas ancestrales del monasterio
is a no brainer. You gain a solid amount of passive healing for casting Patada del sol naciente
which you would have been doing anyway. You will generally be running Niebla naciente
also, so again, there is a large amount of synergy with the playstyle.
For Mythic+, the best Mistweaver Monk Legendary is Enseñanzas ancestrales del monasterio.
Again, similar to the raiding updates above, I am switching the recommendation from Lágrima de la mañana
to Enseñanzas ancestrales del monasterio
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, Enseñanzas ancestrales del monasterio
is the clear choice.
Best Holy Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Holy Paladin Legendary is Barrera de choque.
Barrera de choque
is the best healing legendary, it simply does more healing than everything else due to our play style revolving so heavily around Choque Sagrado
. Absorbs are also very effective, due to their low overhealing.
For Mythic+, the best Holy Paladin Legendary is Barrera de choque (Healing) or El dechado demente (Damage).
Barrera de choque
for healing, as you can reliably have the absorb up on all of your group while healing. However using El dechado demente
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 Claridad mental.
For Mythic+, the best Discipline Priest Legendary is Gemelos de la sacerdotisa del sol.
Gemelos de la sacerdotisa del sol
allows you to share your Infusión de poder
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 Purgar al maligno
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 Concentración relámpago.
For 9.0.5 the Best Holy Priest Legendary for Raiding and Mythic+ is Concentración relámpago
. Honorable mention to Aparato armonioso
which can still have a place, especially for those looking for a lower-maintenance playstyle. Concentración relámpago
grants a substantial healing bonus to Sanar
which has good synergy with your conduit in Palabras resonantes
and your talent in Estela de Luz
. With the most recent buff in increasing Concentración relámpago
's duration to 20 seconds from 15, this will reduce excess mana expenditure on Sanación relámpago
's and increase the likelihood that you'll have the free Sanación relámpago
s from Oleada de Luz
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. Concentración relámpago
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 Zona en llamas
are, killing enemies more rapidly. When it comes to healing Orgulloso
, you'll be healing your allies unevenly with Concentración relámpago
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 Núcleo de marea primigenia.
For Mythic+, the best Restoration Shaman Legendary is Tótem de mareas de caminaespíritus.
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 Favor de Koltira or Ira del campeón congelado.
In a raid setting, Favor de Koltira
is generally the best choice. It's best in single target which is also your main concern in Raid. Ira del campeón congelado
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 Ira del campeón congelado or Frío cortante.
Best Unholy Death Knight Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Unholy Death Knight Legendary is Espiral mortífera.
For Mythic+, the best Unholy Death Knight Legendary is Monstruosidad frenética.
For Mythic+, Monstruosidad frenética
is the best choice in essentially every scenario. It brings really good single target burst (almost as high as Espiral mortífera
), 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 Herida ardiente.
The recent 9.0.5 buffs really pushed Herida ardiente
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 Mordedura de demonio
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 Herida ardiente or Favor de miradaoscura.
Similarly to raiding, Herida ardiente
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. Favor de miradaoscura
will outscale Herida ardiente
if you are doing large quick pulls as you would simply not have the AoE be alive long enough for you to apply Herida ardiente
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 de todas las cosas.
For Mythic+, the best Balance Druid Legendary is Equilibrio de todas las cosas or Púlsar Arcano primordial.
Best Feral Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Feral Druid Legendary is Jarabe de enfoque profundo.
The legendary buffs are more reasonable however not by enough to change your legendary choices realistically. For raiding Jarabe de enfoque profundo
will continue to reign supreme on any single target fights, by a large margin. For fights where you can't use Jarabe de enfoque profundo
however the legendary changes might be relevant. If you can't use Jarabe de enfoque profundo
then the next few legendaries are all very close with some niche advantages between them, El ciclo de vida y muerte
is the best AOE legendary among them, Ansia del superdepredador
shines when you can funnel into one big target, Sortija de frenesí
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 Bibelot de ojo de gato
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 El ciclo de vida y muerte.
For M+ nothing changes. El ciclo de vida y muerte
is too synergistic with feral's AOE kit and it would take a miracle to dethrone it.
Best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary is Colmillos penetrantes de acecharrylaks or Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas.
For Mythic+, the best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary is Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas.
Even with the new buffs to other legendaries, Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas
is still going to be the best legendary for dungeons. The low cooldowns of Trampa de brea
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. Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas
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 Colmillos penetrantes de acecharrylaks
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 Artimaña de acechador de serpientes.
For Mythic+, the best Marksmanship Hunter Legendary is Disparos emergentes or Artimaña de acechador de serpientes.
Best Survival Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Survival Hunter Legendary is Aparato atrapador de 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.Aparato atrapador de 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 Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas
is close to its effectiveness once you start doing AoE heavy encounters, and is a good "safe" choice for multiple types of content. Racimo de fuego salvaje
is another easier option. Inyectores de veneno latente
remains bad and not close to competitive despite the recent buff.
For Mythic+, the best Survival Hunter Legendary is Racimo de fuego salvaje or Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas.
When it comes to Mythic+ Racimo de fuego salvaje
is currently the best performing one, however Ascuas de las Forjas de Almas
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 Distorsión momentánea.
For Mythic+, the best Arcane Mage Legendary is Bombardeo Arcano.
Best Fire Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Fire Mage Legendary is Orden disciplinaria.
For damage, Fire's best overall Legendary is Orden disciplinaria
due to the 5% Critical Strike damage buff made in 9.0.5. Conjuro febril
is a very close second. Orden disciplinaria
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 Combustión
is coming off cooldown soon. Descarga de Escarcha
and Nova de Escarcha
are the best spells to use to trigger the Frost component. Keep in mind that the Runa de poder
that auto-casts with Combustión
also counts. Since Distintivo de victoria de Gladiador pecaminoso
is flagged as being from the Arcane School, it also works to trigger the arcane component. If these are unavailable, you can also use Centelleo
, or Deflagración Arcana
. This is a very strong single target and AoE legendary. With the buff in 9.0.5, this is now our best.Conjuro febril
is a close second in most situations. Conjuro febril
is much less of a hassle than Orden disciplinaria
, but behind it by about 3% in AoE and Single Target. Conjuro febril
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 Orden disciplinaria.
For all the same reasons listed above, Orden disciplinaria
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. Conjuro febril
is very close behind, and might be worth running in some cases where the additional considerations for Orden disciplinaria
aren't worth the hassle.
- Resguardo triple is the best Legendary for survivability, especially since each barrier spell has its own effects and absorb shield. Carámbano macabro is very useful and fun for solo content such as Torghast or World Quests, since it makes Nova de Escarcha an unbreakable AoE root.
Best Frost Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Frost Mage Legendary is Hielo resbaladizo for single-target, Vientos congelantes for 2-3 targets, or Fragmentos glaciales for 3 or more targets.
For Mythic+, the best Frost Mage Legendary is Vientos congelantes or Fragmentos glaciales depending on the average pull size.
Cleave and AoE dominate Mythic+, so we want to pick a legendary favouring that. Vientos congelantes
or Fragmentos glaciales
are going to be our go-to options since they both excel with cleave and AoE. Vientos congelantes
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. Fragmentos glaciales
is still very strong where the average pull size is much higher. Hielo resbaladizo
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 Deleite del invocador.
Best Retribution Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Retribution Paladin Legendary is Veredicto final for single-target, Tempestad del Iluminado for AoE, or generically Sentencia del magistrado / El dechado demente.
For Mythic+, the best Retribution Paladin Legendary is Tempestad del Iluminado, Sentencia del magistrado, or El dechado demente.
Best Shadow Priest Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Shadow Priest Legendary is Estratagema de Talbadar.
Shadow’s strongest legendary in Raid looks to continue to be Estratagema de Talbadar
due to its superiority in single target encounters. The recent buffs to Prisma de Pirosombra
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 de Pirosombra
will be a good choice if a fight ever calls for stacked cleave or 2-3 target AoE.
Honourable mention goes to Gemelos de la sacerdotisa del sol
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 de Pirosombra.
Best Assassination Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Assassination Rogue Legendary is Hoja funesta.
With the buffs to Hoja funesta
, 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 Envenenar
bonus increases with Púa ósea dentada
. I'd say Hoja funesta
is a great raid pick, however, our old favorite Insignia de 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 Insignia de Zoldyck.
In dungeons, the top legendaries all look very close numerically and can depend on preference, affixes, and pull sizes or durations. Insignia de Zoldyck
is possibly the best general option that looks strong. That said, Marca del maestro asesino
is a good pick if you can get a lot of restealths and the two single target focused legendaries Hoja funesta
and Gallardo malandrín
aren't bad at all either.
Best Outlaw Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Outlaw Rogue Legendary is Celeridad.
Despite 9.0.5 buffs to legendaries below it closing some gaps, Celeridad
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 Celeridad.
continues to be the strongest legendary in any situation. In dungeons, Marca del maestro asesino
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 Irrevocable.
9.0.5 does not change anything for Subtlety Rogues when it comes to what legendaries are good in what situation. Irrevocable
is the best all-rounder and strong in any situation. Fragmento de alma de Akaari
can beat it slightly in pure single target situations as an alternative.
For Mythic+, the best Subtlety Rogue Legendary is Irrevocable.
For Subtlety, Irrevocable
will continue to be a great option in any situation and thus my recommendation. That said, in dungeons where you can restealth fairly often, Marca del maestro asesino
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 Resurgimiento de lava de hablavientos.
Resurgimiento de lava de hablavientos
was the legendary that surprised us a bit. It's in first place in single-target scenarios and not by a small amount either. Free Oleada de lava
procs is no small deal in a world where Ráfaga de lava
is currently tuned to hit extremely hard. With how much Elemental tends to rely on single-target/funneling performance in raid to shine, this will be the legendary of choice outside of those specific fights that favor Perdición ígnea del Rompecielos
For Mythic+, the best Elemental Shaman Legendary is Perdición ígnea del Rompecielos or Ecos del Gran Cataclismo.
Best Enhancement Shaman Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Enhancement Shaman Legendary is Vientos de fatalidad.
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, Vientos de fatalidad
is unlikely to fall off because the landscape of Castillo de 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 Latigazo de lava
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:Huesos de lobo de médico brujo
- for sustained single-target this gained a lot from Latigazo de lava
buffs with a full suite of supporting picks in Puño de magma
, Mano caliente
, and Espíritus elementales
has a real chance to break out in future encounters that are less focused on burst windows - one to look out for.Accionadores de lava primigenia - 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.Legado de la bruja de Escarcha - doubling the damage increase to Golpe de tormenta 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 Vientos de fatalidad.
Best Affliction Warlock Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Affliction Warlock Legendary is Reliquia de sinergia demoníaca.
The only real recommendation for pure raiding at the moment is Reliquia de sinergia demoníaca
. 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 Cólera maléfica, Agonía perpetua de Azj'Aqir or Reliquia de sinergia demoníaca.
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, Agonía perpetua de Azj'Aqir
will be the best for general aoe damage, and Reliquia de sinergia demoníaca
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 Sigilo de invocación superior de Wilfred or Reliquia de sinergia demoníaca.
For Mythic+, the best Demonology Warlock Legendary is Fuerzas de la pesadilla astada, Sigilo de invocación superior de Wilfred, Reliquia de sinergia demoníaca, Potencial implosivo, or Llamada aterradora de inquisidor macabro.
Legendaries again remain the same as previous depending on the weekly affix, you shouldn't feel pidgeon holed into one or the other.
- Fuerzas de la pesadilla astada: A flat chance to duplicate your previous Mano de 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 Invocar tirano demoníaco, Implosión and overall Wild Imp damage.
- Sigilo de invocación superior de Wilfred: The pacing of most Mythic+ in Shadowlands is such that having (on average) a 60 second Invocar tirano demoníaco 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 de sinergia demoníaca: 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+.
- Potencial implosivo: 5% Haste per imploded Imp is quite significant in M+ where most packs will be 4-5+ mobs and your primary AoE is Implosión 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.
- Llamada aterradora de inquisidor macabro: The 1% buff to this legendary has made it quite relevant for M+ especially when paired with Latigazo aterrador giving your Llamar a terracechadores the ability to AoE with amplified damage.
Best Destruction Warlock Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Destruction Warlock Legendary is Cenizas de Azj'Aqir.
Cenizas de 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 Conflagrar
casts means more Explosión de humo
stacks, making the spec faster and more fun to play. Another viable option is Sigilo de invocación superior de Wilfred
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 Sigilo de invocación superior de Wilfred.
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 Sigilo de invocación superior de Wilfred
. A lot of the power of Destruction lies in our Invocar infernal
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 Sello de reyes atormentados for Venthyr or Arremetida duradera for other Covenants.
For Mythic+, the best Arms Warrior Legendary is Sello de reyes atormentados.
Best Fury Warrior Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Fury Warrior Legendary is Sello de reyes atormentados, followed closely by Hacedor de muerte.
Sello de reyes atormentados
is best for single and multi target encounters alongside the Filotormenta
talent, due to frequently triggering cooldowns. Although it does complicate the rotation slightly due to wanting to ensure Enfurecer
is active before using cooldowns and encouraging cancelling Filotormenta
in order to use Condenar
at max rage, the benefits are enough to make it worthwhile.
For Mythic+, the best Fury Warrior Legendary is Sello de reyes atormentados.
