Gear and upgrades in WoW Shadowlands 9.1
Each WoW player, whether he is a rookie or a seasoned professional, pounds about the way of properly gearing his character up. Here we will explain how to get the best gear and how to do it most optimally.
Gear obtaining methods:
- World Bosses
- Kothia Zone
- Death’s Advance
Fighting the Valinor, Mortanis, Oranomonos and Nirgash will give all the players a chance to receive 207 ilvl gear. This is a good reward and we strongly recommend you to put some effort into getting it.
Exploring a new Kothia Zone you can defeat local guards. Also special daily and weekly quests become available to you. Fulfill the Ve’Nari tasks, participate in the Tormentors of Torghast and Covenants Assaults events. You will be granted Kothian Gear by doing all of the above.
Kothian Gear can be used to create a random character-specific 200 ilvl gear piece. You can buy it from Death’s Advance Quartermaster Duchess Mynx with a price of 1000 Stygia after you achieve a Friendly reputation level. Such items bind to your account which means you can pass them to your alts. These items can be subsequently upgraded from the 1st to the 6th rank increasing their ilvl, you must address one of NPC in Oribos or in your Covenant’s Sanctum. The price for the upgrade is set in the new Cataloged Research currency which you can collect by fulfilling various quests across Kothia such as: finding treasures and relics and defeating rare creatures.
Upgrade requirements and cost
Rank 1/6 – ilvl 200 – cost – requirement
Rank 2/6 – ilvl 207 – cost 250 – requirement 40+ renown
Rank 3/6 – ilvl 213 – cost 750 – requirement 40+ renown
Rank 4/6 – ilvl 220 – cost 1250 – requirement 40+ renown
Rank 5/6 – ilvl 226 – cost 2000 – requirement 60+ renown
Rank 6/6 – ilvl 233 – cost 3000 – requirement 75+ renown
In this list you can see each upgrade rank requirements and cost. Getting sufficient reputation for Death’s Advance will grant you 220 ilvl gear from Duchess Mynx and it can be exchanged to 239 ilvl gear at Archivist Roh-Suir for Cataloged Researches after you get the Tier 6 Research.
Waiting for this patch was distressing. Players had not seen any progress in Shadowlands for more than 7 months – the real anti-record in World of Warcraft history.
