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.
Gear acquired from Mythic Keystone dungeons are now upgradable with Valor, a new currency that is earned from completing Mythic Keystone dungeons and covenant Callings. There is a maximum amount of Valor that can be earned each week and gear that dropped before the patch are unable to be upgraded.
200 Item Level: Initial item upgrade level.
207 Item Level: Requires the Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One achievement – Earned by completing all eight Shadowlands dungeons at Mythic 5 or higher, within the time limit.
213 Item Level: Requires the Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One achievement – Earned by completing all Shadowlands dungeons at Mythic 10 or higher, within the time limit. (We will help you get this achievement in just 1-2 days!)
220 Item Level: Requires the Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One achievement – Earned by completing all Shadowlands dungeons at Mythic 15 or higher, within the time limit. (We are now selling at a uniquely low price)
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.
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.
Upgrading to Item Level 200 requires no achievement.
Upgrading to Item Level 207 requires Shadowlands Keystone Explorer: Season One.
Upgrading to Item Level 213 requires Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season One.
Upgrading past Item Level 220 requires Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One.
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.
