  • Valor
  • A currency used to increase the power of items from Mythic dungeons.

Valor was an item upgrade currency rewarded for completing Mythic+ dungeons in Shadowlands. Although it existed prior to Shadowlands, it was removed after Warlords of Draenor and remained unused through Legion and Battle for Azeroth. It continued into Dragonflight with Dragonflight Season 1 but would be removed with Dragonflight Season 2 in favor of [Flightstones] and seasonal crests.

Valor is seasonal and will reset to zero at the start of a new season.
