Barney's Legendary Farming guide


We all want them as fast as possible, but due to their strength compared to other pieces of gear they are extremely hard to come by if you’re not willing to flash your wallet and drop a few dollaridoos on them. That is why I will be explaining how to efficiently farm legendaries so you can get your BiS in no-time.


First a few notes about legendaries.

- First off they will drop from almost any legion content, this means that even killing a rare world quest mob will have a certain chance. This chance increases as the difficulty of the content increases as well. This is however a contested point, since the community had put together statistics on retail disproving this, even though blizzard themselves said so.
Spoiler:


- Secondly, Loot lockouts on raid and dungeon bosses also apply to legendaries, making it impossible to just solo MoS 200 times per day to increase your dropchance.

- As a last note, your so called ‘Bad Luck Protection’ will reset once a legendary drops, but only for your current loot spec. The only exception to this are Shared Legendaries such as
Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus, Sephuz's Secret and Aggramar's Stride. If you get any of these legendaries in a drop the bad luck protection will reset for all your specs. This also applies to legendaries that are useable by only two specs, if you get one it will reset the BLP for the both of them (not for the one you can't use it on of course)


If we take these notes into consideration we can see a few things, mainly that you should just play the game and have fun, legendaries will come since almost anything you do will reward them. If you do however want to get as many of them as possible I have a few tips and tricks to get this done as fast as possible. These will all be about maximizing the amount of bad luck protection you get, because as I said, everything can and will at some point drop a legendary.


General Tips

1. Only farm one spec at the time, this way you won’t lose any BLP when you get a shared legendary.
2. Don’t do dungeons that you already have lockout for on any other difficulty than M+, M+ of course is the only type of PVE content that doesn’t have loot lockout.


Farming for Real

Now on to actually farming the legendaries.

- First, if your gear allows it you can solo dungeons on normal and heroic, if you do every dungeon on all the difficulties every week you will get a huge boost in BLP this will often be faster or just as fast as doing them with a pug group once you have a high enough item level so that the most time you spend in a dungeon is just traversing it.

- If you can and want to you can also solo M0, but in my experience it is almost always faster to do this with a group, this way you can all get some more BLP in a very short time. This can also help your low geared friends who just need some gear to start out with as you guide them through the dungeon.

- Do as many raids on as many difficulties as you can handle, this means running LFR to Mythic on EN, TOV, NH and TOS. Finding a group for older content can be hard, but if you have a guild you can always just get a group of about 10 people and breeze through the content. If you are lucky you can always still get some nice titanforges out of it aswell.

- Do emissaries, this step is extremely easy and takes the least amount of time out of all the ways to farm, just doing them every day gives you a huge amount of BLP per week, since you won’t just be doing the World Quests, but also getting the caches from your emissary.

- Another almost endless way of getting more BLP is doing PVP, both arena’s and Battlegrounds give an uncapped amount of BLP per day/week. This is however compensated by the low outright chance they give you.

- Lastly you should buy
Relinquished Bracers and other relinquished tokens from Thaumaturge Vashreen to target certain slots.


In the end, you will have to farm a lot to get your BiS, as it can happen that it is the last legendary to drop for you. Don’t get discouraged by your guildy who got his two BiS legendaries after just 5 days of farming, after all it all mostly comes down to RNG, but by following these tips you can maximize the amount of legendaries you get per month.

Have Fun and Good Luck farming,

Greetings, Barney

So to clarify, why is it not a good idea for me to just farm Halls of Valor normal and kill Hymdall over and over?
From what i read, that doesnt work due to "loot lockout", can you explain that further
My issue is that I have a twink character and he doesn't have access to raids or mythic dungeons.
Thanks

Since you will have a loot cooldown for that boss if you kill him once on a certain difficulty the legendary chance will also not increase, since this only increases when there are chances for regular loot aswell.

Does changing loot specs to target certain loot at some bosses affect BLP in any way?
On this server, I don't care how it was on retail.

The only difference this will make is if the bosses are of a different difficulty, as such there will be a difference between a mythic tos boss and a normal eoa boss, just as it would when you don't change loot spec.

I don't think you understood what I was asking.

What I meant was - if, e.g. I get my Havoc BLP up to 80%, and then change loot spec to Vengeance for a few raid bosses, then change back to Havoc, is my Havoc BLP still at 80% or does it reset to 0% when I change my loot spec?

it will not, changing loot specs will not reset anything, only receiving a legendary that is usable on all specs will reset it for these specs
