A new expansion for World of Warcraft means new Legendary items. First you need to hit max level in Shadowlands and then finish the Torghast intro in The Maw. Upon vanquishing Warden Skoldus and receiving a key, you’ll meet the Runecarver and get started on the journey of crafting a Legendary. Legendaries start at item level 195 and cap out at item level 235.
A Legendary item is created by finding a Memory of the Runecarver in specific activities and then enchanting an armor piece with that power. These powers can end up altering core abilities for one’s class and providing different bonuses. Some even feature skills from previous expansions like Legion and Battle for Azeroth though there are some new ones to find. You get these from dungeons, raids, the new Covenant quests and much more. Each class starts with four Memories and certain types can only be used in certain slots.
As for the armor pieces, these can be found in the Auction House or crafted. Don’t worry about the level of the Legendary since it can be upgraded later. After this, you’ll need to run Torghast for Soul Ash – delve deeper into the dungeon and more Ash is obtained overall. Look for an Inscriptionist to craft Missives like haste or critical strike chance on the Legendary and spend Soul Ash for the same.
