SWLicon.png This article concerns content for Secret World Legends. For the TSW Classic version, click here.

Through out Secret World Legends there are yellow or black honeycombs, each with a bit of lore. Some are an easy find, turn a corner and there it is. Some of them require a bit ingenuity and, when they were feeling generous, a helpful ladder. The Legends are meant to represent knowledge that is passed onto your character by The Bees, a little bit at a time. The lore is that of our world, our history; just a little deeper, a little more sinister.

Acquiring Legends

UI-LoreHoneycomb2.png Legend Honeycombs mark the spots, scattered throughout the game, where Legend can be added to your Legend journal. To acquire the specific element of lore, click on the Legend, and allow it to download to your Legend journal. Once it is acquired, that Legend will no longer appear on your screen. You cannot reacquire Legends once you have acquired it.

Legend has to be actively acquired. It is not sufficient to merely spot the legend. Nor is it sufficient to get within some area surrounding the legend, as it works with most mission requirements. You have to actively click on the Legend, and then allow time for the legend to be downloaded to your Legend journal. Because of this, acquiring legend can be disrupted if you are attacking during its acquisition.

Locations of Legends

Legends can be found in both easily accessible and hard to get to locations throughout the game. Legends can be found in all the major areas of the game, from Faction HQs in London, New York, and Seoul, to the individual zones of Kingsmouth, the Savage Coast, Blue Mountain, and all the others. Legends can also be found inside mission instances. Since these Instances are only accessible during missions that unlock them, you want to be certain to thoroughly search every Instance to make certain you have located and obtained the legends.


Each Legend Honeycomb you gather rewards you with:

  • 100 Anima Shards
  • Experience
    • Experience gained seems to scale with character level:
      • Levels 1 thru 15 = 225 + (25 * Character Level)
      • 16 - 49 = Unknown
      • Level 50 = 2,200

When you get the last entry in a Legend, instead of the amount listed above you get:

  • 500 Anima Shards
  • Experience = Basted on your level, Double the amount listed above

Current Legend List

The collections of legends are guaranteed to grow over time as new mysteries and new content is added to the game. Legends are and should be a constantly moving target. The best you should ever be able to say is, "I have acquired all the known legends at this time." You should always be on the lookout for new legends, and expect to have to revisit old areas in the search for newly revealed legends. Legends added from events and issues is the proof of that, especially since some of these have parts all around the world.
