Why You Should Be Prioritizing WoW’s New Megadungeon

Trust me - the time-juice is worth the squeeze.

Tomorrow is reset day in WoW, which means it’s the perfect time for me to remind you that you should really consider running the new dungeon, Dawn of the Infinite, at every given opportunity. Why? Well, there’s a few pretty compelling reasons. Here’s why you should be prioritizing the new megadungeon in World of Warcraft.

WoW’s Dawn of the Infinite Gives Super Powerful Loot

Loot that drops in Dawn of the Infinite’s only (currently) available difficulty does so at item level 437. That’s quite a bit higher than standard Mythic dungeons and is six item levels higher than running a +20 Mythic Keystone. Sure, there’s only one opportunity to do the dungeon each week per character, but there are also a whopping eight bosses. Think of it like running two pretty tough dungeons for really good drops in a row.

… and Great Upgrade Materials …

Even if you crap out on all your loot rolls, you’ll be getting two Aspect’s Shadowflame Crests per run by combining the fragments that drop from bosses. The gear in the dungeon drops at Hero 4/5, and these Crests can be used to upgrade it to a whopping 441 item level, OR be used to craft an Enchanted Aspect’s Shadowflame Crest by an enchanter.

This Enchanted Crest can be used to craft gear up to a level of 447, but it requires four Aspect’s Shadowflame Crests as well as a buttload of Enchanting reagents. Probably best to use your Crests as they are before you consider trying to make one of these.

… and Cosmetics!

If gear isn’t enough to tickle your fancy, how about some bling? At the end of the dungeon, you’ll be rewarded with a random transmog item as well as a shot at the Quantum Courser, which rewards a super-rare mount when opened.
