Only Azeroth’s most seasoned veterans possess the fortitude to wield Artifacts of legend against the Burning Legion. Your myth-forged weapon grows in power as you do, and your choices will change its abilities and the way it looks, sounds, and feels in combat. Fashion your Artifact into the perfect instrument of battle, and guide your faction in its most desperate hour.
You have become one of the greatest Priests in Azeroth, deserving of a weapon not only with power—but with a name.
Between Light and Shadow
Priests have three distinct specializations: Discipline, Holy, and Shadow. Each brings with it a unique identity that is reflected within the Artifact weapon choices.
- Discipline Priests stand between the light and shadow—wielding both, they straddle the precipice between. For them, this balance must be carefully cultivated so that they might wield and control the power of the staff Light’s Wrath in battle.
- Holy Priests embody the power of the divine and thus wield a true weapon of the Light: Tuure, Beacon of the Naaru. A weapon of this pedigree can be put to task to either heal allies or smite those who would stand against them.
- Practitioners in the ways of shadow will truly covet Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire as a part of their arsenal. The Shadow Priests who wield this Void-honed blade will truly terrify their enemies and bend minds to their will.
Each Artifact is a symbol of the might of the Priest that wields it. Names have power—learn those of these mythic weapons well, for they will be your constant companions against the deadliest foe you’ve faced yet.
