Sell or Use any Valor/Conquest before Tuesday's Launch of 9.2

It’s that time again to empty your wallet of any unused Valor/Conquest you have earned over Season 2.

It will be converted to gold on Tuesday when the new 9.2 patch goes live. (10s per 1 point - not worth it)

Season 3 will not begin until the following week when the Raid (Normal/Heroic) open, but currency gets converted when the patch drops.

You have 3 choices:

  1. Upgrade any piece you currently can based on your current score thru an upgrade vendor

  2. Buy Valor/Conquest BOA Tokens that you can then use to play the gear lottery system if you have been missing one specific slot piece this season (remember: Domination sets are defunct in the new zone, so it might not be bad to try and replace any piece that you got from LFR (ilvl 213) in order to make your 3 piece set function. You could then use your remaining Valor to upgrade thru step 1 to your max Season 2 rank.

  3. Broker Vendor in Great Vault room will convert Valor to Elethium, Heavy Callous Hide, or Lightless Silk. You could either AH these items or hold onto them since these materials are still used in crafting your one piece of unique 262 gear. This option is still better than the straight gold conversion rates of 1 to 10 silver.

ps… If you go Step 2 and acquire a new piece of gear (Helm, neck, bracers, waist or rings) that is NOT socketed. You can still buy the socket item in Korthia for 5000 research. (This only applies to Season 2 gear)

Hope this helps,


I have so little of this currency that this vendor will probably be my first visit. Thanks Trevain for this info.

Last night I had the Blahs of the end of a season where all my gear becomes wet tissue paper. Sigh…so much effort folks put into getting these things to have them dissipate upon a change of the story like this.

Once again a random green drop is better than your purple gear…

Lyn, here are all the ways you can get gear starting Tuesday. I pulled this from a website.

Patch 9.2 Gear item levels (ilvl) in Shadowlands Season 3
This data is based on PTR and how Season 1 and Season 2 data looked liked.

Outdoor Gearing (233-252)
The ilvl gear when it comes to outdoor world gearing is different than before. Before it was world quests in which renown level changed the gear ilvl.

Now in patch 9.2 the gear ivl is based on your progress in Zereth Mortis when it comes to the new Cypher Console.

The main part when it comes to gear is that this system has a Cypher Equipment level. The level starts at 1 and max level is 6. The more points you put into cypher console by unlocking and upgrading traits with a currency called Cyphers of the First Ones, the higher you will level.

Level 1 Rewards 233 ilvl from various sources.
Level 2 Rewards 239 ilvl from various sources.
Level 3 Rewards 242 ilvl from various sources.
Level 4 Rewards 246 ilvl from various sources.
Level 5 Rewards 249 ilvl from various sources.
Level 6 Rewards 252 ilvl from various sources.

You start at ilvl 233 and the highest ilvl you can reach is 252 ilvl.

Here are all the sources tied to the ilvl gear and the cypher system.

Check out more information about how that works here.

Anima Vendor – ilvl 226
Once you reach the new Zone, Zereth Mortis in 9.2, you will enter a hub called Haven, very early in the questline. In Haven, there is a vendor that sells Broker´s Gear that is Bind on Account, meaning you can wear it or send it to your alts.

The ilvl on Broker´s Gear is 226 and you can buy every gear slot piece.
There are two different types of trinkets you can get as a caster, two for agility and two for strength users. You can also get this gear procced with a socket, and tertiary stats such as Leech, speed etc.

Every time you open a Broker´s gear, you will get a random stat on it. So basically, you can buy Broker´s gear so you will get a full set of the exact stats that you want on your character.

The costs to buy Broker´s Gear is anima. At the moment on the PTR, every gear slot costs 500 anima.

Conduits – ilvl 226 & 278
You can buy an item called Font of Ephemeral Power

This item gives your character all the conduits there are for your character and also increases the ilvl on all your conduits to 226 ilvl.

Font of Ephemeral Power is sold by the new reputation vendor in Haven. The new reputation is called The Enlightened. You start with 0/3000 Neutral with them. Once you reach friendly, you can by this item.

Another item added in the new reputation vendor in Haven is called Vessel of Profound Possibilities.

This item gives your character all the conduits there are for your character and also increases the ilvl on all your conduits to 278 ilvl.

The requirements to get this item are:

  • Honored with The Enlightened
  • Any of the Keystone Hero achievements for Season 3:
    Mythic: Sepulcher of the First Ones
    Defeat all the raid bosses on Mythic Difficulty.
    Gladiator: Shadowlands Season 3
    Win 50 3v3 games while at Elite rank during Shadowlands Season 3.
    Random Gear – ilvl 229
    You will find gear that is part of a Zereth Mortis transmog set.

For Cloth it is called Staccato Gear Set.
For Leather it is called Choral Gear Set.
For Mail it is called Anthemic Gear set.
For Plate it is called Harmonium Gear Set.

You can find this gear randomly from different creatures, rares, treasures and more.

Sandworn Vendor – ilvl 246
There is a new Gear vendor in Zereth Mortis in which you can buy 246 ilvl gear. This gear vendor sells all gear slots except for necklace, rings and trinkets.

It is the same Zereth Mortis transmog set as the random gear.

The currency to buy this gear is called Sandworn Relic.

This vendor is located in Pilgrim´s Grace in Zereth Mortis and the NPC is called Elder Rafiq.

The costs to buy is a new currency called Sandworn Relics and you need a total of 2070, if you want to buy an entire set.


Sandworn Relics

Back 160
Wrist 160
Belt 160
Feet 230
Hands 230
Shoulder 230
Chest 300
Head 300
Legs 300

You farm Sandworn Relics by opening special chests called Sandworn Chests, or by killing special rares on the top right side of the map. The areas are called Arrangement Index and Endless Sands. To be able to open the Sandworn Chests you need a key and to get the key you need to combine 5 Sandworn Chest Key Fragments that you get by killing Mawsworn mobs in that area.

Special Rares – ilvl 236
There are some rares that are different from the normal rares in Zereth Mortis. I call them special rares. Special rares have a star with a skull on it on the map and minimap. They have more abilities and also much more health compared to normal rares.

These special rares have a chance to drop 246 ilvl gear.

Special Treasures – ilvl 236
There are treasures that you can only loot once and some that you can only loot once a day. I call these special treasures. Because the normal treasures can be looted the entire day on different locations on the map. Also, normal treasures has less items in them compared to the special treasures.

These special treasures have a chance to drop 246 ilvl gear.

Normal Dungeon loot (210 ilvl)
There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
8 of them are available in normal mode.

Heroic dungeon loot in Shadowlands (223 ilvl)
There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
All 9 of them are available in heroic mode.

Mythic 0 dungeon loot in Shadowlands (236 ilvl)
There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
All 9 of them are available in mythic 0 mode.

Tazavesh (236 ilvl)
This dungeon came out in patch 9.1 and was only available in mythic mode. Now in patch 9.2 we can enter this dungeon in:

Heroic mode that drops 223 ilvl loot
Mythic 0 mode that drops 236 ilvl loot. In patch 9.1 we actually got higher ilvl from Tazavesh, but now in patch 9.2 this dungeon will have the same ilvl as the other Shadowlands dungeons.
Mythic plus mode
Mythic plus dungeons (233-262)
Great Vault M+ (245-278)
There are 9 dungeons in Shadowlands at the moment.
You can do all dungeons in mythic plus mode.

In mythic plus, you get loot from the chest after killing last boss (you don´t get loot from every boss).

The weekly chest is instead a “Great Vault” in Shadowlands, that lets you choose between several types of gear based on what weekly goals you have completed.

The ilvl jump from Season 1 to Season 2 is 26 ilvl from what we can see on the raid rewards. Based on how the loot increase has changed from Season 1 to Season 2 in Shadowlands, this is how it might look in 9.2.

The Great Vault - Weekly Reward

Coming soon.

In Legion and BFA, we had one weekly mythic plus objective, which was a reward based on the highest key you have done during that week.

In Shadowlands, there are major changes in weekly objective rewards.

There are 3 main categories for getting a piece of gear each week.

Mythic plus
Each main category has 3 objectives that you can complete during the week before next weekly reset.

That makes it up to 9 weekly objectives that you can do each week.

Completing all 9, well that will let you choose between loads of gear at the weekly reset.

But the reward is still only one item gear.

The ilvl rewards are based on what difficulty you completed the goal in.

Raid loot in Shadowlands (187-233 ilvl)

Raid Finder 239 ilvl

How to get legendaries in 9.2
Getting legendaries in patch 9.2 will not be the same way as before, where we had to do Torghast. Instead, there are many ways in which we can obtain legendaries. The goal is to let any player, no matter what type of gaming they do in WoW, be able to get a legendary. Meaning, if you are a raider or a PvP player, or a dungeon player and so on.

How to upgrade Legendaries
You will no longer upgrade the next tier of your legendaries by doing Torghast and gathering its currency.

Instead, you will upgrade your legendary in the new zone Zereth Mortis where you will meet the Enlightened Brokers in Zereth Mortis and become allies with them. They will help you upgrade your legendaries.

  1. Reach Honored with The Enlightened.
  2. Buy the item Tome of the Eternal from the Enlightened rep vendor. Check here for location and rep farm.
  3. Learn Vestige of the Eternal by using the item Tome of Eternal.
  4. Based on what profession you are, you will need items from Zereth Mortis tied to your profession and also legendary item called Progenitor Essentia. Check here on how to farm Progenitor Essentias.
  5. Craft a Vestige of the Eternal which is an optional reagent that increase the ilvl by 3 ranks on your specialized armor.

If you have a rank 4 specialized armor, and use the Vestige of Eternal, then you get the ilvl 291 on it.

Go to the Runecarver and add the specialized armor.

The cost to craft a 291 ilvl Legendary is

  • 2000 Cosmic Flux
  • 1650 Soul Cinders
  • 5150 Soul Ash

All legendaries can now be upgraded with Cosmic Flux.

Cosmic Flux will be rewarded from a variety of activities in Shadowlands Season 3, such as defeating raid bosses, PvP, Mythic+, Torghast, Tower of the Damned, and World Quests.

Equip two legendaries, BUT
You will be able to wear two legendaries in patch 9.2.
However, it is important to know that one of the must be a covenant legendary. Meaning, you can only wear a covenant legendary together with any of your other legendaries.

The covenant legendary will be a belt.
This belt will change legendary power whenever you change covenant to that covenant legendary power.
If you already have a legendary belt, then you will be able to swap the legendary power to another slot, so that you have the covenant legendary on belt.

In order to equip two legendary items, one must be either the Legendary belt or another armor slot imbued with the new Runecarving Memory.

How to unlock double legendaries
You will be able to wear two legendaries after you have increased your reputation revered with the new faction Enlightened Brokers in Zereth Mortis.

Unlock double legendaries account-wide
Once you have unlocked double legendaries on one character, it will be unlocked on your other characters.
