Catalyst is being launched this next Tuesday 1/24.
For those unfamiliar with the catalyst…TLDR
It converts Gear into Tier Set Pieces.
Tier Sets have a 2/4 set power bonus - which is why it is important to work towards getting this.
Tier Pieces have set Secondary Stats, any tertiary stats (avoidance) will convert over.
Gear that is convertible is from Raid, WB, M+, PVP, or Upgraded Elemental Gear (purchased with Elemental Overflow and then upgraded with Storm Sigils - this is the route for the casual player)
Crafted Gear can NOT be converted into Tier.
Remember, Tier power is only on Head, Shoulder, Legs, Gloves, & Chest.
Don’t make the mistake of converting a Raid Dropped Waist, Wrists, Feet, or Cloak. The reason this is even an option is for Transmog/alternate stats.
There is a weekly quest to gain you 1 Charge for the catalyst. You can only have 6 charges saved total. This is account wide…once you earn a charge every character will have a charge to spend.
Variety of ways to get the weekly done, WB, Raid, Dungeons, World Events etc.
You will get it by simply doing what you do every week normally.
Hope this helps,
