How to upgrade Legendary to 940

When the Nighthold opens next week, players who have acquired at least one Legion Legendary item will find a quest in Dalaran to upgrade a Legendary from item level 910 to 940.

The questgiver is Arcanomancer Vridiel located in Blacksmith building in Dalaran.


This quest involves collecting 50 Essences of Aman’thul, which can be found in the following locations:

  • Nighthold Raid Bosses - Rewards 3-5 Essences per boss
  • Weekly Mythic Keystone Cache - Rewards 15 Essences
  • Emissary Bags - Rewards 2-5 Essences
  • PvP Weekly Quests

Once you have completed the quest, you'll be given a Distilled Titan Essence, which can be consumed to upgrade a Legion Legendary item to level 940. The quest is repeatable, so you'll be able to earn as many Distilled Titan Essences as you need to upgrade any Legendaries you have.


Additionally, once the Nighthold is open, any new Legendaries you discover will already be item level 940. Note that this does not apply retroactively to Emissary Bags that you may already have in your inventory when the time comes. Only new bags earned after the Nighthold is open have the chance to reward an item level 940 Legendary.
