WoW: Legendary adjustments with patch 9.0.5 - all changes in the overview

Fears about poor balancing in WoW Shadowlands were pretty high even before release. The main reason for this was the multitude of new systems that were all introduced at the same time, all of which had a significant impact on the strength or weakness of classes. While the balancing didn't turn out to be as bad as it was often predicted, good is still something else. For this reason, the developers are making many adjustments to the balancing with the upcoming WoW Shadowlands Patch 9.0.5. Not only the classes will get smaller changes, but also the Legendarys will be revised generously. Some of them will get completely new effects, others will just have their numbers tweaked. The goal is to bring the different Legendarys closer together again. Currently, there is only one Legendary for most play styles, which outshines all others in almost every situation. This should change soon.
