World of Warcraft Shadowlands Legendary Crafting
In order to unlock Legendary Crafting, you first need to reach Level 60 by completing the campaign missions.
Once you reach Level 60, start the Covenant part of the campaign. In the first chapter of this part, you will be familiarized with the Covenant and other endgame mechanisms in Wow Shadowlands.
The first step to unlock the Legendary Crafting will be to farm 1000 Anima. You need to collect 1000 Anima and deposit them in the reservoir at the Covenant.
After this step is done, you will have to go through a Soulbinds tutorial, after which you will be tasked with the Chapter 2 “Torghast” of the campaign.
In this quest, your objective will be to return to the Maw. In this chapter, you will be tasked with various small quests by Ve’nari.
After you complete these quests, she will send you to Torghast, where you will have to complete a quest and at least 1 Layer of the chambers in the campaign.
During your activities here, you will find a key which can be used to access Runecarver’s Chamber.
There is a quest in Torghast in which you explore the Runecarver chamber, and it unlocks after you find the key. In the chamber, you will meet the Runecarver.
After the dialogue, defeat the enemies and then farm 5 fire elemental embers from the Cauldron. After collecting the Embers, go to Ve’nari to buy the required item from her and then head back to Runecarver.
Free the Runecarver from the shackles, after which he will give you 2 tasks. The tasks you need to complete in order to unlock Legendary Crafting will be to farm 1250 Soul Ash.
Once you collect the required amount of Soul Ash, return to Runecarver. This will unlock the Legendary Crafting for you.
