Patch 9.2 Gear item levels (ilvl) in Shadowlands Season 3

This data is based on PTR and how Season 1 and Season 2 data looked liked.


World Quests

The two factors that had the impact on the ilvl from world quests were your character ilvl and unlocking higher levels of Renown. 

In patch 9.2, we will not get any higher renown level.
At the moment on the PTR, there are no changes in world quest rewards. 

In patch 9.1 we get 40 extra levels of Renown with a total of Renown level 80. 
After reaching level 40 and start leveling Renown in 9.1, you get your first World Quest ilvl increase at Renown level 46. Then again at Renown 63. 


Normal Dungeon loot (210 ilvl)

There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
8 of them are available in normal mode.

 


Heroic dungeon loot in Shadowlands (223 ilvl)

There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
All 9 of them are available in heroic mode.

 


Mythic 0 dungeon loot in Shadowlands (236 ilvl)

There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
All 9 of them are available in mythic 0 mode. 


Tazavesh  (236 ilvl)

This dungeon came out in patch 9.1 and was only available in mythic mode. Now in patch 9.2 we can enter this dungeon in:

  • Heroic mode that drops 223 ilvl loot
  • Mythic 0 mode that drops 236 ilvl loot. In patch 9.1 we actually got higher ilvl from Tazavesh, but now in patch 9.2 this dungeon will have the same ilvl as the other Shadowlands dungeons. 
  • Mythic plus mode

Mythic plus dungeons (233-262)
Great Vault M+ (245-278)

There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
You can do all dungeons in mythic plus mode. 

In mythic plus, you get loot from the chest after killing last boss (you don´t get loot from every boss). 

The weekly chest is instead a "Great Vault" in Shadowlands, that lets you choose between several types of gear based on what weekly goals you have completed.

The ilvl jump from Season 1 to Season 2 is 26 ilvl from what we can see on the raid rewards. Based on how the loot increase has changed from Season 1 to Season 2 in Shadowlands, this is how it might look in 9.2.

The Great Vault - Weekly Reward

 

Coming soon.

In Legion and BFA, we had one weekly mythic plus objective, which was a reward based on the highest key you have done during that week.

In Shadowlands, there are major changes in weekly objective rewards.

There are 3 main categories for getting a piece of gear each week.

  • Raids
  • Mythic plus
  • PvP

Each main category has 3 objectives that you can complete during the week before next weekly reset.

That makes it up to 9 weekly objectives that you can do each week.

Completing all 9, well that will let you choose between loads of gear at the weekly reset. 

But the reward is still only one item gear.

The ilvl rewards are based on what difficulty you completed the goal in.

Crafted Legendary (291 ilvl)

ilvl coming soon. 

How to get legendaries in 9.2

Getting legendaries in patch 9.2 will not be the same way as before, where we had to do Torghast. Instead, there are many ways in which we can obtain legendaries. The goal is to let any player, no matter what type of gaming they do in WoW, be able to get a legendary. Meaning, if you are a raider or a PvP player, or a dungeon player and so on. 

How to upgrade Legendaries

You will no longer upgrade the next tier of your legendaries by doing Torghast and gathering its currency.

Instead, you will upgrade your legendary in the new zone Zereth Mortis where you will meet the Enlightened Brokers in Zereth Mortis and become allies with them. They will help you upgrade your legendaries. 

1) Reach Honored with The Enlightened. 
2) Buy the item Tome of the Eternal from the Enlightened rep vendor. Check here for location and rep farm. 
3) Learn Vestige of the Eternal by using the item Tome of Eternal.
4) Based on what profession you are, you will need items from Zereth Mortis tied to your profession and also legendary item called Progenitor Essentia. Check here on how to farm Progenitor Essentias. 
5) Craft a Vestige of the Eternal which is an optional reagent that increase the ilvl by 3 ranks on your specialized armor. 

If you have a rank 4 specialized armor, and use the Vestige of Eternal, then you get the ilvl 291 on it. 

Go to the Runecarver and add the specialized armor. 

The cost to craft a 291 ilvl Legendary is

* 2000 Cosmic Flux
* 1650 Soul Cinders
* 5150 Soul Ash

All legendaries can now be upgraded with Cosmic Flux.

Cosmic Flux will be rewarded from a variety of activities in Shadowlands Season 3, such as defeating raid bosses, PvP, Mythic+, Torghast, Tower of the Damned, and World Quests.

Equip two legendaries, BUT

You will be able to wear two legendaries in patch 9.2. 
However, it is important to know that one of the must be a covenant legendary. Meaning, you can only wear a covenant legendary together with any of your other legendaries. 

The covenant legendary will be a belt. 
This belt will change legendary power whenever you change covenant to that covenant legendary power. 
If you already have a legendary belt, then you will be able to swap the legendary power to another slot, so that you have the covenant legendary on belt. 

In order to equip two legendary items, one must be either the Legendary belt or another armor slot imbued with the new Runecarving Memory.

How to unlock double legendaries

You will be able to wear two legendaries after you have increased your reputation revered with the new faction Enlightened Brokers in Zereth Mortis.

Unlock double legendaries account-wide

Once you have unlocked double legendaries on one character, it will be unlocked on your other characters.
