This is a list of all the [Legendary] (aka orange) items in the game and generally where they come from or how to obtain them.

In World of Warcraft


[Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros]

A two-handed mace. Not to be confused with the [Sulfuron Hammer]. The materials needed to create this item can all be found in the Molten Core, though they are very rare drops.

[Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker]

A one-handed sword. Requires very rare item drops from Molten Core, lots of Elementium from Blackwing Lair, and then you are able to summon Thunderaan, an outdoor raid boss, who then drops the sword.

[Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian]

Added in Patch 1.11, obtaining it involves going into Naxxramas and completing a quest line. Since Naxxramas was moved to be floating above Dragonblight the staff is no longer obtainable since the components dropped in the original instance.

The staff was used by Medivh in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.

Encounter-limited weapons

[Andonisus, Reaper of Souls]

A conjured sword, Andonisus is dropped by Atiesh, in the midst of the battle to purify the legendary staff Atiesh, at which point a player would wield it against the demon. It vanishes after 10 minutes, or if the wielder leaves Stratholme.


[Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal]

A crystal that summons a Black Qiraji Battle Tank (fast bug mount). It's exactly like the red, green, yellow, and blue Battle Tanks that can be frequently found in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj, but it can be used anywhere in the world, not just AQ40 like the others. A player must complete the extremely difficult Scepter of the Shifting Sands raid-based quest line and be the first to ring the Scarab Gong to open the gates of Ahn'Qiraj, or must ring it within 10 hours of the first player's ring (during the Ahn'Qiraj Invasion event). As the gates are now automatically opened on all new servers, this item is no longer obtainable.

[Enchanted Elementium Bar]
