The gist of this livestream was the announcement of a large chunk of the legendary powers. It appears that most or all of the 0/41/61 abilities will be getting legendary abilities. Due to the dead computer there were several legendary abilities that were missed, such as pretty much anything dealing with Clerics. Review this spreadsheet for all of the legendary abilities that we have gathered so far.
