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.

Mythic Dungeons

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

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)

      Currently on the Beta, something iffy is going on with Lava Burst. It's bugged in a weird way, allowing Elemental Shamans to can constantly spam the ability.
      Update: The bug is caused by the Windspeaker's Lava Resurgence Legendary Item effect, which triggers Ascendance on Lava Burst casts. Ascendance auto-casts Lava Burst on all active Flame Shock targets, and this can trigger a loop if you get lucky. Thanks to Bloodmallet for pointing out what's causing this!
      The bug seems to have something to do with the Primordial Wave, the Necrolord Covenant Ability, that spreads Lava Burst to nearby enemies affected by your Flame Shock.  

      Redditor Hakizu also posted a second video showcasing the bug during an Arena match. Warning, the video contains strong language.

      The WoW community spent the second half of this week in anticipation of Blizzard's pre-patch release date announcement, only to come away disappointed. There has been plenty of speculation on the date, going from September 15th all the way to the current most likely date of October 6th (for the US). Also, a brand new clue/tinfoil hat conspiracy has come up recently as well, as some mobs are channeling once again!
      The Season End Warning
      First things first though, the real reason why October 6th/7th is the most likely pre-patch release date at this time is the warning Blizzard give out for the end of a season. Usually it's around 2 weeks, but it's been known to be less, and many players are hoping they'll just make it 1 week this time. However, with this being the end of not just Season 4 but also Battle for Azeroth in general, with many players still chasing AotC and CE achievements, arena rankings and everything else that's going away in the pre-patch, it seems unlikely that the now very standard 10-14 days warning goes down to 7 or 8 (as Monday would be the earliest they could announce at this point).
      The Channeling Mobs
      There have been several new reports of some very persistent casters channeling once more, as both the old controversial Xorothian Cultists and some new friends of theirs are at it again. Now this particular "channeling time is pointing to the patch/pre-patch/other important dates" theory has been debunked in the past, and several different mobs have been seen channeling pointing to random dates, so take this one with a giant grain of salt, but the new and old mobs are indeed channeling again and are pointing to October 6th and 7th (depending on is it's on US or EU servers).
      You can read about the Xorothian Cultists here, the new Shirakess Apprentice fellows here, and you can (and probably should) read the debunking thread from a few years ago here.

      Source.
      The Reputation Buff
      As we've talked about before, the reputation buff is active through all of September and it seems a little strange/unlikely that it would remain active for only 2 days (or even 1 for EU) of the pre-patch arriving. Obviously this isn't that big a deal but it does point to the 6th and 7th being more likely as well, and at least we know the dates of the rep buff as a fact, unlike the above two reasons.
      Conclusion
      It's seeming very likely that we won't be getting the pre-patch on October 29th/30th, making Shadowlands' one of the shorter pre-expansion events, coming in at 3 weeks. Whether this has something to do with the controversial nature of the Scourge invasion event, which has been moved around the insane/difficult/slightly annoying/irrelevant scale an awful lot on the PTR, so perhaps Blizzard don't want it up for too long, or perhaps there's some technical issues or even just the need for more polish for the pre-patch itself, we might never know. What we do know is that the community is VERY eager to get into the pre-patch, with its fast leveling speeds, level squish, new player experience, invasion event and so much more.
      We can all still hope for the 29th/30th, but it's looking more and more likely October 6th/7th is the one.

      if you thought our boy Rextroy needs Corruption for his one-shots, you are wrong! In his latest video, Bloodthirst crits for 600K, and the combo is one of the more complicated ones by far and includes buff stacking, gear swapping, and PvP scaling.
      In the following paragraphs, Rextroy talks in depth on how to perform the devastating combo.

      Pirate's Day is once again upon us! Blizzard have posted an official preview of the activities for this year, and you can also check out our own guide here. Booty Bay is the place to be today, as the event has gone live and you can grab the achievement and have some fun roleplaying a pirate!
      Pirate's Day (source)
      Hoist sail and make way for Booty Bay because Pirate’s Day begins September 19!
      Bring Your Sea Shanty to Booty Bay
      Pirates have taken over the goblin town of Booty Bay and Captain DeMeza is recruiting any scurvy dog she can into her buccaneer ranks. Visit her or her henchmen in the capital cities if the pirate’s life is for you!
      Feeling out of place in Booty Bay without a proper costume? Don’t worry. /Dance one little jig with the Dread Captain DeMeza and she’ll be impressed enough to press you into her crew and outfit you properly. If you get attached to your new look, you can do the quest You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat! Succeed, and you’ll get an Emergency Pirate Outfit (or five) for when Pirate’s Day is but a distant memory and your inner pirate is clawing to get out.
      What good is a pirate without an avian companion on their shoulder? Captain DeMeza (for the exchange of a few shiny coins) can help you call forth a temporary companion named Petey to take with you wherever you sail.
      From time to time the captain will shout for a brave party to take on a terror of the deeps–an elite shark known as Ol’Eary. Make sure you have a hearty crew with you or you could become just so much chum in the waters of the bay.
      Join the Beach Party
      Once you and your crew have helped the captain handle Ol’Eary, you can celebrate with the crew at a little beach party just south of Booty Bay. Those with the Feat of Strength "Advast Ye, Admiral" can also purchase a toy from Edward Techt–the Jolly Roger to show off their dedication to the cause.
      If you’re really feeling generous, you can also purchase a Big Bag of Booty from Captain DeMeza and spread the wealth around to all your pirate pals in a burst of glittery glory.
