Mythic Keystone Dungeon Rewards Changes and Valor

  • Completing a Mythic Keystone dungeon after the timer has ended will now reward a second item. The item level of the second item will be slightly lower (e.g. finishing a Mythic 7 Keystone dungeon, but not completing the timer now rewards the party with a 200 iLvl item and a 197 iLvl item.

In addition to the above change, Valor is making a return. We have not used Valor since Cataclysm and in this new iteration it will be earned from Mythic Keystone Dungeons and Covenant Callings. Valor will be spent to upgrade Mythic Keystone Dungeon gear.

Especially for the readers of our blog, we provide a 25% discount on Shadowlands Keystone Master and Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror discount code "KEYSTONE"

Valor Points Weekly and Total Caps

Valor Points are a currency that is being readded in Patch 9.0.5 to help players gear up through the Mythic+ system.

The Valor currency currently has two caps:

  • A Weekly Cap that starts at 5000 during the first week of Patch 9.0.5 and increases by 750 each week,

  • A Total Cap of 1,500

This means that you can only hoard 1500 Valor Points before you will want to spend some on upgrading your gear.

Earning Valor Points

There are two ways to earn Valor Points: Callings and running Mythic+ dungeons.

  • Completing your Covenant Callings will reward you with Valor. Each Covenant calling will award you with 50 Valor.

  • The other way to earn Valor Points is by completing Mythic+ dungeons. The exact values of Valor Points from Mythic+ dungeons isn't currently known and will be updated when we know more.

Upgrading Mythic+ Dungeon Gear

Dungeon Gear Ranks

Each piece of dungeon gear from Item Level 184 to Item Level 220 that is obtained from Mythic 0 will be given a Rank from 1 to 12. This rank will be shown on the tooltip of the item.

Valor Costs and Requirements

In order to upgrade your dungeon gear to the next rank, there are two requirements: Valor and an achievement pre-requisite.

There are four breakpoints that require an achievement pre-requisite.

Each Rank requires a certain amount of Valor to upgrade a piece to the new Rank. Depending on the type of gear you are trying to upgrade, the amount of Valor Points will fluctuate. We've datamined 6 different Valor costs to upgrade your gear.
