With World of Warcraft: Shadowlands on the way, datamining is in full force. Groups like the folks over at Wowhead pick through the information that Blizzard ships around to and from the Shadowlands Alpha to find new additions we can expect.

One of the things with datamining is that it’s difficult to confirm until the developers themselves decide to do so. With that in mind, take everything mentioned here with a grain of salt, as Blizzard hasn’t confirmed any of these reveals.

In previous expansions, players have been given some sort of legendary-based source of power. Whether it was the rings of Warlords of Draenor, the class halls and artifact weaponry of Legion, or Battle for Azeroth‘s Heart of Azeroth and Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve, there’s always been some form.

This next expansion seems to be no different. Players will wield covenant powers and legendary runeforged abilities to improve their strength, many of which are based on previous iterations of legendary options.

Today, Wowhead revealed some new spells that were discovered that could likely serve as runeforged powers for the Priest and Shaman classes. It’s worth noting that these spells weren’t found in the same location as others, but in an uncategorized location.

That said, they’re primarily related to old set bonuses and legendaries from the Legion expansion, meaning that it’s likely they’re serving as in-development legendaries. They could also serve as anima powers, another upcoming mechanic.

One of these, for example, is the Holy Priest power The Alabaster Lady, which causes Prayer of mending healing to have a 5% chance of granting Apotheosis to the caster for 8 seconds. This spell is derived from a Legion legendary also titled the Alabaster Lady.

The same can be said for the Restoration Shaman power Jonat’s Natural Focus, which causes Healing Wave and Healing Surge to increase the healing done by the shaman’s next Chain Heal. This ability seems to be derived from the Legion legendary Focuser of Jonat, the Elder.

For a full list of the abilities that were datamined, check out Wowhead’s write-up on the new information embedded above. While these are unconfirmed, they fit the characteristics of other powers that seem to have been found in more reliable spaces.

As the expansion comes ever closer, we’re likely to receive more information either from official sources or datamining. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled on July 8th, where Blizzard will be conducted their once-postponed Shadowlands livestream!
