In this guide, you will learn how to upgrade Mythic+ gear using Valor Points in Patch 9.1.


Changes to Valor Points in Patch 9.1.5

Au'Dara the Heirloom broker in Oribos sells Valorous Equipment Chest Icon Valorous Equipment Chest, which contains 1 piece of item level 210 Mythic +0 gear, enabling you to send gear to alternate characters.


What is Valor?

Valor is a currency used to upgrade Mythic Keystone Gear in Patch 9.0.5 and beyond.

Every piece of Mythic Dungeon Gear in Patch 9.1.5 is given a rank based on its Item Level, as you can see on the tooltip.

You can upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear from Rank 1 (Item Level 210) all the way to Rank 12 (Item Level 246).

This also applies to the Great Vault loot. For example, if you receive a piece of gear that has Item Level 226 from the weekly chest, it will be of Rank 6 out of 12.

Valor Gear from Valorous Equipment Chest

Patch 9.1.5 adds a method for players to buy item level 210 Mythic +0 gear and send it to alts. Valorous Equipment Chest Icon Valorous Equipment Chest can be purchased from Au'Dara the Heirloom vendor near the Flight Master in Oribos. It costs 500 Valor. Your character must have a Mythic+ Rating of 1,500 or higher to be able to buy it.


Valor Conversion at the End of a Season

Every time a new Season starts in Shadowlands, Valor is converted to Gold. Therefore, we advise you to spend any remaining Valor on Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide Icon Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide, Shipment of Elethium Ore Icon Shipment of Elethium Ore, and Shipment of Lightless Silk Icon Shipment of Lightless Silk. Selling these items will give you more Gold than the conversion would give you.
