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.

And still nothing for people who hate pvp, raiding and speedrunning dungeons.  or can't find groups for either.

 

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)

      Sinrunner Reins is a new and probably secret mount that you can obtain in Shadowlands.
      We currently do not know what happened to good Old Blanchy after it died back in Westfall, but the mount has a Venthyr hue to it, so we speculate that its soul ended up in Revendreth for some reason.
      Sinrunner Reins teaches you Sinrunner Blanchy, so we know for sure it is the same horse we previously encoutered, but what sins did Blanchy commit remains to be seen.
      Other datamined spells and items tied to the mount and the NPC that you need to interact with to get it are:
      Blanket for Blanchy (DNT) requires Comfortable Saddle Blanket "A soft and comfortable blanket for regulating body temperature." Blanchy Horseshoes (DNT) > Requires 4 Sturdy Horseshoes "Protective footwear for horse-like creatures." Groomed Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Grooming Brush "A circular motion with the stiff bristled brush removes and soothes itches." Watered Blanchy (DNT) > Requires Bucket of Clean Water "Guaranteed to quench the greatest thirst." Apples for Blanchy (DNT) indicates that you will need three Dredhollow Apple to create Sinrunner Reins, which seems to be the final step in getting the mount.
      Based on the number of items you must acquire, we think the mount will be tied to some secret, where you must brush the horse, provide it with a blanket, clean water, and so on.
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      Some rumors were circulating about the removal of Herald of the Titans in Shadowlands after the level squish. Luckily, we're able to confirm the achievement is there, but the requirements were squished down too.
      If you want to get the Herald of Titans achievement in Shadowlands before the squish on live servers, you must be at level 80 and have nobody in the raid wear items higher than item level 100. With the Shadowlands level squish, you will need to defeat Algalon at level 30 wearing items no higher than item level 35.
      Herald of the Titans in Visions of N'Zoth Herald of the Titans in the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 80 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 100. Herald of the Titans - Defeat Algalon the Observer at level 30 without anyone in the raid wearing items higher than Item Level 35.

      Niya, one of the Soulbinds available to members of the Night Fae Covenant, comes with an interesting Soulbind trait that mimics the Shadowmeld Night Elf racial.
      If you decide to join the Night Fae Covenant, you will gain access to the Soulshape Signature Ability, which increases your Movement Speed by 50% and teleports you 15 yards forward on a short cooldown.
      Niya, one of the Night Fae Soulbinds, comes with the Sylvari Mantle that conceals you when Soulshape ends until you move, so it acts pretty much like the Shadowmeld, the Night Elf racial.
      Other Soulbind traits that you can get through Niya include:
      Row 1: Stay on the Move (on the same row with Sylvari Mantle) Row 4: Niya's Tools: Burrs // Niya's Tools: Poison // Niya's Tools: Herbs Row 7: Care Package // Swift Patrol Row 8: Grove Invigoration Note that you can only pick one Soulbind trait per row.
      Here's Niya's full Soulbind Path.
