All that comes in patch 9.0.5

Patch 9.0.5 is an “x.x.5” patch which means it is a smaller patch than the bigger ones such as 9.1, 9.2 etc. This patch has a main focus on systems and not content.

When is 9.0.5 coming out

Comes out March 9 in US and March 10 in EU. For all other servers it will come out on that weekly reset. 


What is coming out in patch 9.0.5

As mentioned, its all about systems and more precisely:

  • Implementation of Valor Points
  • Covenant changes – upgrades /nerfs
  • Conduit changes – upgrades /nerfs
  • Legendary changes – upgrades /nerfs
  • Mythic plus reward changes
  • Great Vault requirement changes
  • PvP changes
  • The Maw changes
  • Torghast changes

The non-system-based updates we getting are following

  • New mount - The Wandering Ancient
  • Potency Conduits drops in Castle Nathria
  • Max capped Renown will reward gold

Implementation of Valor points

Valor Points will be in the game once again. I have two guides for you on how that will work.


Covenant Changes

All classes got minor or major changes in their covenant abilities. The main goal Blizzard has is to balance the covenant abilities so that none of them sticks out too much compared to the others within a class. So basically, you will see maybe a nerf in the best covenant for your class/spec and upgrades on the covenants that are not good, or as good.

Here are all the changes in detail for covenant and covenant class abilities: https://www.worldofmoudi.com/covenant-and-conduit-changes-in-9-0-5

Also check out the best covenants for all classes in 9.0.5

Conduit changes

At the moment we don’t have changes on all classes when it comes to conduits. The only classes that got conduit changes are Demon Hunter, Druids, Priests, Rogues and Warriors.

You can check the conduit changes here https://www.worldofmoudi.com/covenant-and-conduit-changes-in-9-0-5


Legendary changes

Similar to the covenant changes, the main goal Blizzard has is to balance the Legendaries so that none of them sticks out too much compared to the others within a class. So basically, you will see maybe a nerf in the best legendary for your class/spec and upgrades on the legendaries that are not good, or as good.

Here are all the changes in detail for each class: https://www.worldofmoudi.com/legendary-changes-in-9-0-5


Class ability changes

We have loads of class ability nerfs and buffs: https://www.worldofmoudi.com/class-core-ability-changes-9-0-5


Mythic plus reward

If you don´t complete the mythic keystone dungeon in time, you will get an extra item anyway BUT the second item will have a slightly lower ilvl then the ilvl of the main item reward.


Mythic Keystone changes

Mythic Keystone players receive each week has been adjusted:

Before 9.0.5
Players would always receive a Keystone 1 level below the highest they'd completed so far in Season 1.

The change for 9.0.5
Keystone level will continue to decrease by 1 per week until players again complete a higher level Keystone.

  • For example, a player who completes a level 15 Keystone will receive a level 14 Keystone the following week. If they do not complete a 15 or higher Keystone that week, they will receive a level 13 Keystone the week after.

Great Vault requirement

The raid loot section is slightly changed.
