Legendary quality is the second highest level of item quality available to players, above Epic. It usually takes multiple end-game raid instance runs to acquire or craft these items. Legendary items are considered the most powerful items available to players. The names of legendary-quality items will appear in orange. There is also a higher category of item called Artifact that was introduced in World of Warcraft: Legion.

For the list of legendary items, see Legendary items.


Legion This section concerns content related to Legion.

"Legion Legendaries" are a large number of items that are below normal legendaries in rarity, but still very powerful. At the beginning of World of Warcraft: Legion, players are only able to equip one Legion Legendary item at a time. As the expansion progresses, the number of legendaries that can be equipped at once will go up.[1]

Legendary items can come from world quest caches, dungeon bosses, raid bosses, PvP strongboxes,[2] world bosses and Mythic+ weekly caches.[3]

As of the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch, Legion legendaries can be purchased from Arcanomancer Vridiel at Tanks for Everything in the Dalaran above the Broken Isles.[4] Most sources of Artifact Power will instead give [Wakening Essence] to help in the effort to purchase these items.


  • Prior to Legion, nearly all equippable legendary items were weapons. Most others were components used to create these weapons. One, the  [Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal], is a mount. With the exception of those in The Burning Crusade, all of the legendary items required a complicated and arduous quest line in order to get them.
  • Legendary items cannot be transmogrified, nor be used to transmogrify. Legion legendaries are the exception to this rule.
  • Equippable items of legendary quality always have one or more attribute bonuses or procs.
  • Equippable items at legendary quality can't be disenchanted by characters with the Enchanting profession.
  • The hexadecimal color code for legendary itemlinks is #ff8000.
