This post contains every shadow priest artifact weapon skin that will be released for WoW Legion 7.0. Shadow priest skins will be unlocked through quests, killing high-profile enemies, and PvP accomplishments. In Legion, the shadow priest’s main artifact weapons are Xal’atath, Blade of the Black Empire and Secrets of the Void. Although you cannot transmog either artifact weapons over your other weapons, other non-artifact weapons can be transmogged over both artifact weapons. Also, changing the color tint of one artifact will automatically change the color of both, so you can’t mix and match the two shadow priest artifact styles.
Right now there are 6 different artifact models to choose from. Each model comes with 4 different SP color skins. Bringing the total color variations to 24. As I said before, most of the skins will be obtained through quest and high-profile kills, but one of the skins (Vision of Madness) will most likely be unlocked only through PvP prestige achievements. Check out the tabs below to see what each model and color variation will look like ingame on your Priest.
Note: I will update every artifact page with locations and farming tips once we receive more information.

Note: Off-Hands not correct on Twisted Reflection skins. Will be updated once final artifact graphics are released.
Blade of the Black Empire Lore: “This terrifying dagger was made from the claw of an Old God eons ago, and dark priests used it for ritual sacrifices during the height of the Black Empire. After the fall of the Old Gods, Xal’atath was hidden away by cults. It has surfaced from time to time over the course of history, inevitably associated with some horrific ritual or disaster. The blade has a will of its own: it uses powerful Void energies and mind magics to warp everything around it for some nefarious purpose.” Provided by Blizzard’s Reveal Page
