The Great Vault in Shadowlands Offers Up to 9 Item Choices Weekly

Recommended Posts

P3Eqsek.jpg

The weekly chest in Shadowlands will no longer be limited to just Mythic dungeons, allowing you to unlock gear from PvP and raiding. The Great Vault offers up to 9 choices that you unlock by completing various objectives.

Freedom of Choice

The weekly chest has been upgraded in Shadowlands to give players more choice. Instead of receiving one preset item, you will be able to select a single reward from a pool of up to nine items, depending on the activities you complete each week.

Here's the work in progress UI of the Great Vault, courtesy of Baratheus.

As you can see above, the weekly chest is no longer limited to just Mythic Dungeons and includes raids and PvP.

Great Vault Objectives

To unlock more choices/slots, you must complete the following objectives:

 Raids

  • Slot #1: Defeat 3 Raid Bosses,
  • Slot #2: Defeat 7 Raid Bosses
  • Slot #3: Defeat 10 Raid Bosses

Mythic Dungeons

  • Slot #4: Complete 1 Mythic Dungeon
  • Slot #5: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons
  • Slot #6: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons

PvP

  • Slot #7: Earn 100 Conquest Points
  • Slot #8: Earn 150 Conquest Points
  • Slot #9: Earn 250 Conquest Points

Note that you can still pick only ONE REWARD from the Great Vault every week. Completing the objectives unlocks more choices.

Rewards Scaling

Based on the datamined global strings from Beta Build 35360, you will be able to increase the item level of your weekly rewards by:

  • Completing higher level Mythic dungeons;
    • The item level will be based on the lowest level of your top run.
      • WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_MYTHIC_SHORT - Complete higher level Mythic dungeons to increase this reward's Item Level.
      • WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_MYTHIC - Complete Mythic Level %1$d dungeons. The reward is based on the lowest level of your top %2$d runs.
  • Defeating raid bosses on higher difficulties;
    • The item level of rewards is based on raid difficulty.
      • WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_RAID - Complete this activity on %s difficulty.
  • Earning a higher bracket win that week.
    • Item level will be based on your highest bracket win that week.
      • CONQUEST_PVP_WEEK_ADDITIONAL_CHEST - Earn an additional %s Conquest this week to unlock a Great Vault reward (item level %s).
      • RATED_PVP_WEEKLY_VAULT_TOOLTIP - %s/%s rewards unlocked this week.\n\nThe item level of your Great Vault reward is %s, based on your highest bracket win this week (%s).

Community Feedback & Discussions

The community is already discussing the new weekly chest on Reddit and some Redditors consider 15 Mythic dungeons per week too much. I, for one, am really excited to see more items to choose from in my weekly chest! We're still in Beta so the objectives are likely to change.

After experiencing the joy of getting subpar gloves from weekly mythic chest for two months straight, anything seems like a nice alternative.
It is one drop instead of two, but given what pvp balanacing looked like, I am ok with that and skipping on arenas completely. Or perhaps doing couple dailies in favour of at least 100 CP.
I can't see this change in a negative light. Although 15 mythics might be a bit too much, but then - you really don't have to, pick of 2 still beats the old weekly chest by a landslide. Just crossing fingers it's not going to be the two of a same item.
edit: I can imagine people rushing low keys just for the sake of speeding the 15 mythic run requirement past doing their weekly +10ish, I guess they'll be more motivated to boost?

Was explaining this to another Guildie of mine and on average when we have enough active players online we typically run 10-15 key runs weekly.  Raiding on avg 1-3 bosses per two Raid nights a week pending on level of progression.  And the PvP is at everyone's leisure since the Guild is not highly focus on PvP as part of endgame content.  So this is way more friendly than relying on the bad rng in BFA to get items to compliment build types on mains and alts a like.

I mean, if you dislike all portions of Endgame content, then this probably never in your field of view in the first place. Each player enjoys what they like/dislike, but you just excluded all Endgame and want Endgame gear for...?

then why do you need the chest if you hate all the end game content?

simply stay with the average gear and you will be fine for open world activities!

I love this. Raiding is all I'm here for and I hate being forced to run Mythics for gear drops. I'm very happy for this change.

Although it's easy to see this in the light of convenience, I think more quantifiably it increases your speed of gearing, doesn't it? More choices means less waste. 

And from that angle it makes sense to me, because 15 mythics isn't necessarily a tickbox which everyone should be aiming for -- it's also about speeding up the people who really push an activity. 

Doofs like me who do 1 Mythic a week (maybe) have a chance to get a good item. People who do several get a very good chance for a good item. People who do loads of Mythics can practically guarantee a good item. Same with raids -- people who do a wing, people who do half a raid, people who do a whole raid. No idea how the conquest relates in SL. 

It seems fair to me.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it drop by 2 or 3 though.

On the one hand, love that we're being given a way to get choice, it's a great help when compared to the current method, especially with loot drops being reduced in SL. Logged in today for 7 chests, and rubbish in 6/7, woooo.

Given the ilvl is by highest run i.e a +15 or mythic boss kill, it's good, actually promotes helping in easier content to get the dungeon number or raid kills. Scrap that, we need to do 15 +15's to get 3 choices of +15 loot? WHAT THE HELL? I get it in theory but in practice WTF?

BUT

It seems too much, especially if you want to have alts, so far this expac looks SO alt unfriendly, yet seems like they're a must have with the 4 covenant options...

Most of the time I do maybe the 3 mythic bosses in a pug, and 1 M+ atm, on 3/4 alts, and just a M+ on the rest. Main will do w.e we do in raid. Even doing 5 mythics will be tedious. 

 

Who the hell keeps greenlighting these systems? There's so many now that scream great, exactly what the community want, but with a major draw back. Corruption vendor (rotation...), cloak catch up (originally only 2 per week, then costs echo's), now this too.

You have pet battles?

What else is there for end game for you when you take M+, PvP and raiding out?

15 Mythic runs seems a bit extreme, lower that to 10?

I agree, i am surprised that they went with 15 runs. I mean, seeing this great vault, They should go with 1/4/10, so that you get at least the second tier, when you finish the 4 dungeons for weekly dungeon quest. i would have thought that it doesnt count, how high you play the level. So i would do a +15 and speed run +2s to get more items. But what i see as well, if they dont lower the dungeon count needed, that raiding would be easier to fill if difficulty doesnt matter. just breezing through 3 lfr wings to get the 10 bosses.

But if it is really like Bobbis said, how would that even work? i mean, lets say i finished a +15 for the item level, what would happen if i run lower level dungeons afterwards? thye dont count into the vault? or do they give me lower level items? both dont seem to make sense, and to communicate this via the interface would be a bit unintuitive.

I don't think it will be like do 15mythic dungeons per week.
I mean, you will be able to do 15 time m0 but there must be something like keys 0-3 counts as 1 mythic, 4-6 as 2, 7-9 as 3 etc.
I can't imagine people really doing m0 15times as speed runs and see casuals couldn't find group m0 because in lfd will looks like: "EASYDUNG +0 ONLY +2k IO RATIO"

There is a clearer post now on IV, Just do a +15, get 1 +15 item, do a 15, 3 10's and a 9, get a "choice" between the +15 and +9 item. Do 3 15's, 6 12's, 5 10's and a 9, get the "choice" between a +15, a +12, and a +9. I say "choice" like that because it's not really a choice, 9/10 times it'll be the ilvl you go for unless the lower one is something amazing.

This is the part I'm annoyed with, it's a choice but not really.

Patch 9.1.3:

We've received a lot of feedback that the number of activities required to maximise your Great Vault choices for the week feels too high. While we intend for the Great Vault to reward the effort of the most dedicated players, we agree that the objectives could do with some tweaking. We've done a tuning pass and feel these changes will promote a healthier playstyle for unlocking your rewards going forward. 

  • Slot #1: Defeat 2 Raid Bosses. (Down from 3)

 

  • Slot #5: Complete 4 Mythic Dungeons (Down from 5)

 

  • Slot #17: Fly in circles for 3 hours (Up from 2)
  • Slot #18: Dance on Mailboxes or on Auction House Steps for 3 hours. (Down from getting a life)

  • Slot #5: Complete 5 Mythic Dungeons or a +10 Mythic dungeon
  • Slot #6: Complete 15 Mythic Dungeons or a +15 Mythic dungeon

 Just figure like someone else said doing 15 +15's seems excessive if you are running those, unless they want people to do low level ones just to get done faster.

      The Venthyr Assault is currently active and it brings a fair amount of fun with it, as we have a way of one-shotting the Fallen Charger mob and some very cool action with a particular Venthyr NPC helping out by literally pulling things out of Torghast.
      First things first, the Fallen Charger. This one is just a fun interaction and you don't actually want to use it (well not more than once anyway), as it's always best to get as many players as possible tagging the mob for higher chances of the mount dropping for everyone involved. But, if you want to have some fun and see a big (well, in this case tiny) golden armored horse getting destroyed by a giant mawrat...

      The quest the above is referring to is "That's a good trick" and you can get it at Lady Moonberry.
      The breakthrough star of the Venthyr assaults has to be Fangcrack though, as he's helping out by just gabbing things from the Torghast portal and throwing them out, in true dredger giant fasion!

      Source: OldGromm.
      There's an achievement linked to him as well, with Hoarder of Torghast asking you to use the items he pulls out, whether it's breaking vases or using the actual usable Anima powers he grabs from inside. He can also drag out one of the broker merchants from the tower, and they will sell very useful Collapsing Riftstone items for only 100 Stygia, so you don't have to spend your Cataloged Research in regular riftstones! But that's not all, as the awesome giant also pulls enemies out, making any kill quests a lot easier.
      So all-in-all, there's a lot of fun to be had with the Venthyr assault, and don't forget - there's a portal to the Maw/assault zone within the assaulting Covenant's sanctum when it's up!

      We've seen the crazy Torghast speed runs with players just sprinting to the finish line in a mad dash to the sub-3 minute mark, but today we have... well a different kind of mad dash!
      Gitoff has gone for speed AND performance in layer 12, not only going pretty fast in general (perhaps not as fast as the recent 2 minute 56 second run, but definitely faster than most of us can ever hope to go), but also getting the 5-star flawless score as well!   The immediate comment in the video description? "Wasted at least 30seconds on floor 1 :(" Granted, Gitoff did have a nice little 9-minute Momentum buff ready before entering the run, but that's preparation for you!

      The final hotfixes of the week focus on Shards of Domination tuning.
      July 30 (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%. [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%. Developers’ note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced. Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters. Fixed an issue where Ticking Sack of Terror could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      As the WoW team mentioned in their statement, they have been removing references "that are not appropriate for our world". While we've noticed the /spit emote change on the BCC PTR, most/all of the other content removal seems to be centered on references to Alex Afrasiabi, who was talked about in the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. Today we'll take a look at some of the things already removed from the game and some that remain, as the removal seems to be an ongoing process.
      First off we have many references already removed, with the Fras Siabi and Foror names being replaced by Ezra Grimm and Nostro. There's many more items, NPCs etc. related to the two names above and others, which you can check out over on Wowhead. The most notable NPC change, however, is the one that received immediate retribution from players when news of the lawsuit broke, as Field Marshall Afrasiabi is now Field Marshall Stonebridge. For a longer list of some of the items that have been removed, check out Wowhead's article here.

      Source: Wowhead.
      However, it seems the work is still ongoing, as there are some references that have not been addressed yet, or some that didn't quite go through completely, like the below. You can see the while the NPC's name remains problematic, it is actually changed in the chat window when he speaks:

      Source: MrGraffio.
      While many references to Fras Siabi have been removed from Stratholme, like the mini-boss, quest etc, at least one remains:

      Source: Thekingchem.
      And then there's this very specific one, which might have even gone completely missed if yuvalal hadn't spotted it, as Foror is mentioned in a conversation between two NPCs in the Escape from Durnholde Keep/Old Hillsbrad Foothills Caverns of Time dungeon:

      Source: yuvalal.

      Clearly the removal of references is still ongoing, and even the ones missed above may already be removed from the game when you read this, as Blizzard have a lot of them to go through.

      Blizzard announced some nerfs for Shards of Domination set bonuses recently. They even made it live briefly, but have been reverted, as the devs didn't want to proceed with the change.
      Further Shard adjustments will be made in the coming days, but they don't want to nerf them now that many players have obtained and upgraded them. 
      (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.
