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 Суперштамм or Алое руническое оружие.
9.0.2 had a single real choice of legendary for Castle Nathria and 9.0.5 looks no different, with Суперштамм
providing a healthy amount of additional damage and Runic Power over time, scaling slightly off target count.Алое руническое оружие
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 Суперштамм
For Mythic+, the best Blood Death Knight Legendary is Алое руническое оружие or Суперштамм.
9.0.5 will likely see a swap to Алое руническое оружие
; unlike raids, tanking uptime is virtually guaranteed, making the cooldown reduction (and therefore incidental rune gains from casting Танцующее руническое оружие
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. Суперштамм
remains a very valid option, but lacks on the defensive front compared to Алое руническое оружие
Best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Vengeance Demon Hunter Legendary is Пылающая душа.
remains the strongest legendary for progression raiding, with Осквернение Разелиха
for Kyrian and Правосудие Арбитра
for other covenants being the highest damage for farm content. None of our legendaries offer a substantial DPS boost, while Пылающая душа
provides a massive survivability increase. None of the changes to legendaries in 9.0.5 have any major effect outside of Дар созерцателя тьмы
, 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 Пылающая душа.
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. Пылающая душа
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. Дар созерцателя тьмы
gets a bigger boost here due to the powerful effects of Метаморфоза
, but it is still a less reliable option.
Best Guardian Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Guardian Druid Legendary is Воспоминание о ярости Урсока, Настой глубокой концентрации or Воля естественного порядка.
For Mythic+, the best Guardian Druid Legendary is Воспоминание о ярости Урсока.
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 Неистовое восстановление
charges on trickle damage. Also has the added benefit of letting us pull off some very impressive pulls when coupled with Воплощение: Страж Урсока
Best Brewmaster Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Brewmaster Monk Legendary is Последний бочонок Буйного Портера.
Последний бочонок Буйного Портера
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. Обугленные страсти
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 Последний бочонок Буйного Портера
is generally going to be the best choice.
For Mythic+, the best Brewmaster Monk Legendary is Последний бочонок Буйного Портера.
Последний бочонок Буйного Портера
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 Правосудие мирового судьи or Безумный идеал.
For raid, the best defensive legendary is Правосудие мирового судьи
. It increases the value of your Правосудие
, 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 Щит праведника
while having very high self-sustain with more Торжество
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 Безумный идеал
. It powers up one of your Молот гнева
and allows you to extend Гнев карателя
for a longer duration. It has great synergy with Праведный защитник
allowing for more uptime on Гнев карателя
overall. It especially shines for single target or priority damage which are very important in raiding.
For Mythic+, the best Protection Paladin Legendary is Оплот праведной ярости or Гравированная печать мстителя Света.
For M+, the best offensive legendary item is Оплот праведной ярости
. Щит праведника
is now a larger part of the AOE damage kit and buffing it even more can provide significant results. Since Щит праведника
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 Гравированная печать мстителя Света
. It will give you more Holy Power, extra interrupts which can be useful in some dungeons, and some smoothing from Первый мститель
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 Карательные меры.
has remained the most-popular Protection Warrior Legendary in Замок Нафрия
, but its time in the limelight looks to be ending. The newly-revamped Карательные меры
offers a massive increase in Блок щитом
uptime, free Реванш
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 Карательные меры.
has risen in popularity in Mythic+, rivalling Владыка грома
in terms of popularity recently. Both options still hold a lot of value, but are getting eclipsed by the newly-revamped Карательные меры
. Карательные меры
grants a major increase to Блок щитом
uptime, free Реванш
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 Видение бесконечного роста.
For Mythic+, the best Restoration Druid Legendary is Урок Темного титана (Healing), Живительное насыщение (Healing), or Круг жизни и смерти (Damage).
When prioritizing only healing in Mythic+, both Урок Темного титана
and Живительное насыщение
are our strongest options. Урок Темного титана
is largely due to its overall synergy with Фотосинтез
as well as the efficiency of Жизнецвет
especially when you factor in additional Знамение ясности
procs. The newly buffed Живительное насыщение
does become a strong single-target healing option especially when double extending Щит Кенария
though it can be somewhat disruptive when utilizing Душа леса
. 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 Круг жизни и смерти
. 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 Солнечный огонь
and Лунный огонь
are a large portion of our damage breakdown.
Best Mistweaver Monk Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Mistweaver Monk Legendary is Древние монастырские учения.
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, Утренняя слеза
was recommended, and it is still a very solid choice, however, with the current dominance of Fistweaving as a playstyle, pairing this with Древние монастырские учения
is a no brainer. You gain a solid amount of passive healing for casting Удар восходящего солнца
which you would have been doing anyway. You will generally be running Сгущающийся туман
also, so again, there is a large amount of synergy with the playstyle.
For Mythic+, the best Mistweaver Monk Legendary is Древние монастырские учения.
Again, similar to the raiding updates above, I am switching the recommendation from Утренняя слеза
to Древние монастырские учения
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, Древние монастырские учения
is the clear choice.
Best Holy Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Holy Paladin Legendary is Шоковая преграда.
is the best healing legendary, it simply does more healing than everything else due to our play style revolving so heavily around Шок небес
. Absorbs are also very effective, due to their low overhealing.
For Mythic+, the best Holy Paladin Legendary is Шоковая преграда (Healing) or Безумный идеал (Damage).
for healing, as you can reliably have the absorb up on all of your group while healing. However using Безумный идеал
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 Ясность разума.
For Mythic+, the best Discipline Priest Legendary is Близнецы жрицы Солнца.
Близнецы жрицы Солнца
allows you to share your Придание сил
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 Очищение зла
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 Быстрая концентрация.
For 9.0.5 the Best Holy Priest Legendary for Raiding and Mythic+ is Быстрая концентрация
. Honorable mention to Аппарат гармонии
which can still have a place, especially for those looking for a lower-maintenance playstyle. Быстрая концентрация
grants a substantial healing bonus to Исцеление
which has good synergy with your conduit in Резонирующие слова
and your talent in Дорога Света
. With the most recent buff in increasing Быстрая концентрация
's duration to 20 seconds from 15, this will reduce excess mana expenditure on Быстрое исцеление
's and increase the likelihood that you'll have the free Быстрое исцеление
s from Пробуждение Света
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. Быстрая концентрация
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 Огненный след
are, killing enemies more rapidly. When it comes to healing Полный гордыни
, you'll be healing your allies unevenly with Быстрая концентрация
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 Изначальное сердце волн.
For Mythic+, the best Restoration Shaman Legendary is Тотем волн духостранника.
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 Покровительство Кольтиры or Ярость ледяного защитника.
In a raid setting, Покровительство Кольтиры
is generally the best choice. It's best in single target which is also your main concern in Raid. Ярость ледяного защитника
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 Ярость ледяного защитника or Трескучий мороз.
Best Unholy Death Knight Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Unholy Death Knight Legendary is Ужасающий лик смерти.
For Mythic+, the best Unholy Death Knight Legendary is Взбешенное чудовище.
For Mythic+, Взбешенное чудовище
is the best choice in essentially every scenario. It brings really good single target burst (almost as high as Ужасающий лик смерти
), 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 Жгучая рана.
The recent 9.0.5 buffs really pushed Жгучая рана
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 Укус демона
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 Жгучая рана or Дар созерцателя тьмы.
Similarly to raiding, Жгучая рана
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. Дар созерцателя тьмы
will outscale Жгучая рана
if you are doing large quick pulls as you would simply not have the AoE be alive long enough for you to apply Жгучая рана
to all the targets and tick long enough on them.
Best Balance Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Balance Druid Legendary is Баланс всего сущего.
For Mythic+, the best Balance Druid Legendary is Баланс всего сущего or Изначальный магический пульсар.
Best Feral Druid Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Feral Druid Legendary is Настой глубокой концентрации.
The legendary buffs are more reasonable however not by enough to change your legendary choices realistically. For raiding Настой глубокой концентрации
will continue to reign supreme on any single target fights, by a large margin. For fights where you can't use Настой глубокой концентрации
however the legendary changes might be relevant. If you can't use Настой глубокой концентрации
then the next few legendaries are all very close with some niche advantages between them, Круг жизни и смерти
is the best AOE legendary among them, Жажда сверххищника
shines when you can funnel into one big target, Кольцо бешенства
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 Украшение "Глаз кошки"
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 Круг жизни и смерти.
For M+ nothing changes. Круг жизни и смерти
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 Острые клыки охотника на рилаков or Угли из Кузни душ.
9.0.5 brings several nice balance changes to the Beast Mastery legendries, with Острые клыки охотника на рилаков
and Ужасная команда
receiving some pretty substantial buffs. Острые клыки охотника на рилаков
specifically is looking to be quite strong, as it provides a solid DPS boost passively that benefits you in all situations, but the numbers are looking closer than expected. Угли из Кузни душ
is still the best choice for any multi-target scenario, especially for fights where burst windows matter more. For single target, the numbers are extremely close, and it is hard to say which will end up on top. Because they are so close, I would recommend Острые клыки охотника на рилаков
on single target because of how much easier it is to play with, but technically Угли из Кузни душ
might be the tiniest bit better with optimal play.
For Mythic+, the best Beast Mastery Hunter Legendary is Угли из Кузни душ.
Even with the new buffs to other legendaries, Угли из Кузни душ
is still going to be the best legendary for dungeons. The low cooldowns of Смоляная ловушка
and Осветительная ракета
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. Угли из Кузни душ
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 Острые клыки охотника на рилаков
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 Хитрость ловца змей.
For Mythic+, the best Marksmanship Hunter Legendary is Буйные стрелы or Хитрость ловца змей.
Best Survival Hunter Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Survival Hunter Legendary is Постановщик ловушек Эрнестуэя.
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.Постановщик ловушек Эрнестуэя
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 Угли из Кузни душ
is close to its effectiveness once you start doing AoE heavy encounters, and is a good "safe" choice for multiple types of content. Кассетные огнебомбы
is another easier option. Инъекторы медленного яда
remains bad and not close to competitive despite the recent buff.
For Mythic+, the best Survival Hunter Legendary is Кассетные огнебомбы or Угли из Кузни душ.
When it comes to Mythic+ Кассетные огнебомбы
is currently the best performing one, however Угли из Кузни душ
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 Искажение времени.
For Mythic+, the best Arcane Mage Legendary is Чародейская бомбардировка.
Best Fire Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Fire Mage Legendary is Четкий распорядок.
For damage, Fire's best overall Legendary is Четкий распорядок
due to the 5% Critical Strike damage buff made in 9.0.5. Лихорадочные чары
is a very close second. Четкий распорядок
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 Возгорание
is coming off cooldown soon. Ледяная стрела
and Кольцо льда
are the best spells to use to trigger the Frost component. Keep in mind that the Руна мощи
that auto-casts with Возгорание
also counts. Since Жетон свирепости грешного гладиатора
is flagged as being from the Arcane School, it also works to trigger the arcane component. If these are unavailable, you can also use Мерцание
, or Чародейский взрыв
. This is a very strong single target and AoE legendary. With the buff in 9.0.5, this is now our best.Лихорадочные чары
is a close second in most situations. Лихорадочные чары
is much less of a hassle than Четкий распорядок
, but behind it by about 3% in AoE and Single Target. Лихорадочные чары
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 Четкий распорядок.
For all the same reasons listed above, Четкий распорядок
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. Лихорадочные чары
is very close behind, and might be worth running in some cases where the additional considerations for Четкий распорядок
aren't worth the hassle.
- Идол Тройного союза is the best Legendary for survivability, especially since each barrier spell has its own effects and absorb shield. Мрачный кристалл льда is very useful and fun for solo content such as Torghast or World Quests, since it makes Кольцо льда an unbreakable AoE root.
Best Frost Mage Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Frost Mage Legendary is Скользкий лед for single-target, Ледяные ветра for 2-3 targets, or Ледяные осколки for 3 or more targets.
For Mythic+, the best Frost Mage Legendary is Ледяные ветра or Ледяные осколки depending on the average pull size.
Cleave and AoE dominate Mythic+, so we want to pick a legendary favouring that. Ледяные ветра
or Ледяные осколки
are going to be our go-to options since they both excel with cleave and AoE. Ледяные ветра
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. Ледяные осколки
is still very strong where the average pull size is much higher. Скользкий лед
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 Радость заклинателя.
Best Retribution Paladin Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Retribution Paladin Legendary is Окончательный приговор for single-target, Буря Светоносного for AoE, or generically Правосудие мирового судьи / Безумный идеал.
For Mythic+, the best Retribution Paladin Legendary is Буря Светоносного, Правосудие мирового судьи, or Безумный идеал.
Best Shadow Priest Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Shadow Priest Legendary is Стратагема Талбадара.
Shadow’s strongest legendary in Raid looks to continue to be Стратагема Талбадара
due to its superiority in single target encounters. The recent buffs to Призма пламени Тьмы
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 Призма пламени Тьмы
will be a good choice if a fight ever calls for stacked cleave or 2-3 target AoE.
Honourable mention goes to Близнецы жрицы Солнца
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 Призма пламени Тьмы.
The changes in 9.0.5 have had the most impact on Shadow’s legendary choices in Mythic+. Before now, Shadow was using a combination of Вечное воззвание к Бездне
, Близнецы жрицы Солнца
, and even Стратагема Талбадара
depending on the week, dungeon, and group composition. The recently buffed Призма пламени Тьмы
is likely to overtake though as the go-to Mythic+ legendary in most situations, though there will still be situations for the others to shine. Вечное воззвание к Бездне
will continue to excel in large multi-pack pulls, and Близнецы жрицы Солнца
will continue to be a strong option in coordinated groups who plan and time their cooldowns across a dungeon.
Best Assassination Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Assassination Rogue Legendary is Роковой клинок.
With the buffs to Роковой клинок
, 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 Отравление
bonus increases with Зазубренный костяной шип
. I'd say Роковой клинок
is a great raid pick, however, our old favorite Знак семейства Золдик
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 Знак семейства Золдик.
In dungeons, the top legendaries all look very close numerically and can depend on preference, affixes, and pull sizes or durations. Знак семейства Золдик
is possibly the best general option that looks strong. That said, Метка мастера-убийцы
is a good pick if you can get a lot of restealths and the two single target focused legendaries Роковой клинок
and Лихой негодяй
aren't bad at all either.
Best Outlaw Rogue Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Outlaw Rogue Legendary is Стремительность.
Despite 9.0.5 buffs to legendaries below it closing some gaps, Стремительность
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 Стремительность.
continues to be the strongest legendary in any situation. In dungeons, Метка мастера-убийцы
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 Завершение.
9.0.5 does not change anything for Subtlety Rogues when it comes to what legendaries are good in what situation. Завершение
is the best all-rounder and strong in any situation. Фрагмент души Акаари
can beat it slightly in pure single target situations as an alternative.
For Mythic+, the best Subtlety Rogue Legendary is Завершение.
For Subtlety, Завершение
will continue to be a great option in any situation and thus my recommendation. That said, in dungeons where you can restealth fairly often, Метка мастера-убийцы
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 Извержение говорящего с ветром.
Извержение говорящего с ветром
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 Волна лавы
procs is no small deal in a world where Выброс лавы
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 Огненная гибель "Усмирителя небес"
For Mythic+, the best Elemental Shaman Legendary is Огненная гибель "Усмирителя небес" or Отголоски Великого Раскола.
Best Enhancement Shaman Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Enhancement Shaman Legendary is Ветра рока.
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, Ветра рока
is unlikely to fall off because the landscape of Замок Нафрия
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 Вскипание лавы
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:Волчьи кости колдуна
- for sustained single-target this gained a lot from Вскипание лавы
buffs with a full suite of supporting picks in Магмовый кулак
, Горячая рука
, and Духи стихий
has a real chance to break out in future encounters that are less focused on burst windows - one to look out for.Преобразователи изначальной лавы - 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.Наследие ледяной ведьмы - doubling the damage increase to Удар бури 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 Ветра рока.
Best Affliction Warlock Legendary in Shadowlands
For Raid, the best Affliction Warlock Legendary is Реликвия демонической синергии.
The only real recommendation for pure raiding at the moment is Реликвия демонической синергии
. 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 Пагубный гнев, Бесконечная агония Аз'Акира or Реликвия демонической синергии.
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, Бесконечная агония Аз'Акира
will be the best for general aoe damage, and Реликвия демонической синергии
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 Печать усиленного призыва Вилфреда or Реликвия демонической синергии.
For Mythic+, the best Demonology Warlock Legendary is Силы рогатого кошмара, Печать усиленного призыва Вилфреда, Реликвия демонической синергии, Взрывной потенциал, or Жуткий призыв мрачного инквизитора.
Legendaries again remain the same as previous depending on the weekly affix, you shouldn't feel pidgeon holed into one or the other.
- Силы рогатого кошмара: A flat chance to duplicate your previous Рука Гул'дана 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 Призыв демонического тирана, Имплозия and overall Wild Imp damage.
- Печать усиленного призыва Вилфреда: The pacing of most Mythic+ in Shadowlands is such that having (on average) a 60 second Призыв демонического тирана 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.
- Реликвия демонической синергии: 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+.
- Взрывной потенциал: 5% Haste per imploded Imp is quite significant in M+ where most packs will be 4-5+ mobs and your primary AoE is Имплозия 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.
- Жуткий призыв мрачного инквизитора: The 1% buff to this legendary has made it quite relevant for M+ especially when paired with Жуткий удар giving your Призыв зловещих охотников the ability to AoE with amplified damage.
