WOW Shadowlands – The Power of Rune Words

WOW Shadowlands – The Power of Rune Words

Shards of Domination is the latest in-game addition in WOW Shadowlands, coming together with Patch 9.1: Chains of Domination this end of June.

After a few introductions have been made regarding the different types of Shards available for you to gather in the Maw, collecting three (3) Shards of the same element provides you with a significant passive ability aptly named Rune Word.

In order for you to carefully plan out your builds accordingly, here are the first three Rune Words to be implemented into the game:



  • Shard of Bek
  • Shard of Jas
  • Shard of Rev
  • Chest piece (loot drop from Sanctum of Domination)
  • Effects: Blood Link
    • Inside the Maw or Torghast, attacking an enemy creates a Blood Link between you and the target.
    • Blood Link pulses every 3 seconds, dealing a set amount of Shadow Damage while healing you for 100% of the damage dealt.
    • If Blood Link overheals you, the healing amount will be transferred to a nearby ally
    • Limit: 1 enemy
    • FROST

      • Shard of Cor
      • Shard of Tel
      • Shard of Kyr
      • Shoulder piece (loot drop from Sanctum of Domination)
    • Effects: Winds of Winter
      • Inside the Maw or Torghast, Winds of Winter accumulates 6% of your critical strike damage if hit, up to a maximum of 180 damage per critical strike.
      • Every 20 seconds, the accumulated damage is unleased in the form of Frost Damage around you, while surrounding you with a Wind aura for 20 seconds, absorbing 100% of damage unleashed
      • UNHOLY

        • Shard of Dyz
        • Shard of Zed
        • Shard of Oth
        • Helm piece (loot drop from Sanctum of Domination)
      • Effects: Chaos Bane
        • Inside the Maw or Torghast, your spells and abilities have a chance to drain a Soul Fragment from your enemy, granting you 10 Primary stats for 30 seconds, stacking up to 15 times.
        • On the 15th stack, you unleash Chaos Bane, dealing 500 Shadow Damage split between nearby enemies, granting you 300 Primary stats for 15 seconds
        • These set bonuses are definitely worth the grind for, depending on how you setup your in-game character in WOW Shadowlands.
