Great Vault Location

The Great Vault can be found in Oribos in Hall of Holding just behind the bank on the ground floor.

As of Patch 9.1, the Great Vault's location is also displayed on the map of Oribos.


Great Vault Objectives

You can add up to 9 items to the Great Vault each week by defeating raid bosses, completing Mythic dungeons, and earning Honor from Rated PvP. Each of the named activities rewards up to 3 items, but as mentioned above, you may select only a single reward per week from all categories.



You must defeat a certain number of raid bosses each week in the current raid tier to unlock items in this category. Note that killing the same boss on different difficulties does not count as two bosses.


Mythic Dungeons

You must complete a certain number of Mythic dungeons each week to unlock items in this category.

  • Completing 1 Mythic dungeon rewards 1 item choice.
  • Completing 4 Mythic dungeons rewards 2 item choices.
  • Completing 10 Mythic dungeons rewards 3 item choices.


You must earn a certain number of Honor from Rated PvP each week to unlock items in this category.

  • Earning 1,250 Honor from Rated PvP rewards 1 item choice.
  • Earning 2,500 Honor from Rated PvP rewards 2 item choices.
  • Earning 6,250 Honor from Rated PvP rewards 3 item choices.


In this section, you will learn how the rewards are calculated and how to get better loot.

  • Raids: The item level of rewards in this category is based on raid difficulty. You can unlock better loot by defeating bosses in Sanctum of Domination on higher difficulties. Loot from the first 8 Sanctum of Domination will always be available whether you killed them or not. Loot from the final two bosses (Kel'Thuzad and Sylvanas Windrunner) cannot be obtained unless you kill them once. Skipping Kel'Thuzad and killing just Sylvanas Windrunner only adds Sylvanas loot to the Vault table.
  • Mythic Dungeons: The item level of rewards in this category is determined by the lowest level of your top 1, 4, or 10 dungeons for that week. Let us assume you completed 10 dungeons and unlocked all 3 item choices. Your 10 runs for the week are: 14(1st), 13, 11, 11(4th), 9, 7, 7, 7, 7, 2(10th). The Great Vault would then offer you Item Level 249 (Slot 1), Item Level 242 (Slot 2) and Item Level 226 (Slot 3) loot based on your 1st, 4th, and 10th run. The item level increases when you complete higher-level Mythic dungeons.
  • PvP: The item level of rewards in this categories is based on your highest bracket win that week.

As you know by now, the item level of loot you will find in the Great Vault the following week depends on the Keystone level of your timed dungeon. The following table covers the item level of rewards and their scaling with each Keystone level in Shadowlands Mythic Season 2.
