If you do not wish to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear, you can exchange Valor Points for various Crafting Materials in Oribos by talking to Ko'tul.
The broker offers the following items for sale:
- Korthite Crystal Geode for 1,500 Valor, which contains 5 Korthite Crystals.
- Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide for 750 Valor, which contains 10 Heavy Callous Hide.
- Shipment of Elethium Ore for 750 Valor. It contains 20 Elethium Ore.

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 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, Shipment of Elethium Ore, and Shipment of Lightless Silk. Selling these items will give you more Gold than the conversion would give you.
Alternatively, you can buy Valorous Equipment Chest from Au'Dara to send item level 210 gear to alts.
