Mythic Keystones are a staple of endgame PvE content in WoW; with an endless supply of gear, upgrade materials, and other rewards, what more incentive could you need to run them? Well, how about a new mount? Here’s how to get Keystone Master.
Keystone Master Dragonflight Season 3 Rating and Reward
Getting Keystone Master means achieving a Mythic+ rating of 2000 or above. To check your current rating, navigate to your Dungeon Journal (keybound to “I” by default) and select the Mythic Dungeons tab at the bottom. The reward for achieving Keystone Master during Season 3 is the Verdant Armoredon, seen below:
How to Increase Your Mythic Rating in WoW
There’s only one way to increase your rating: complete (ideally within the time limit) Mythic+ dungeons of increasingly high level. Timing dungeons higher than those you have previously completed will increase your rating, but some quick math will help us determine what level of key we should be aspiring for.
Getting a rating of 2,000 using eight dungeons means we’ll need a score of about 250 for each dungeon. This corresponds to a keystone level of about 14 (if both Tyrannical and Fortified are timed). This, of course, can be distributed unevenly if you find particular keys to be too much of a struggle. For example, if you boost your Black Rook Hold up to a score of 300, you can get away with an Everbloom of 200 (given everything else is at least 250).
The best way to boost score quickly and increase your odds of getting invited to groups is to time keys you don’t yet have scores for. Remember: each dungeon has a separate “Tyrannical” and “Fortified” score – you’ll need to complete both of these affixes for each dungeon if you want the easiest time increasing your rating. These two affixes alternate every week.
