World of Warcraft has taken many strides to ease the frustration of bad luck, especially in the latest expansion, Dragonflight. Continuing from the popularity of the Creation Catalyst at the end of Shadowlands, players have been given a way to convert pieces of loot into tier armor via a new system called the Revival Catalyst. With so many sources of gear rewards in the Dragon Isles, it can be confusing as to just which ones can be transformed via this machine. Let’s break down all of the gear sources that are eligible for use in the Revival Catalyst in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight.

The latest expansion in World of Warcraft has many gearing paths for players that have never been in the game in the past. Most of these sources are eligible to be transformed into tier gear via the Revival Catalyst, but there are also some popular types of loot that cannot be used in the machine. Armor that can be used in the Revival Catalyst include:

  • Any non-tier raid gear earned during the current Dragonflight season
  • Any Mythic Plus gear earned during the current Dragonflight season
  • Any rated PvP gear rewarded or purchased with Conquest during the current Dragonflight season
  • Any War-Mode PvP gear upgraded via Sparks of Life during the current Dragonflight season
  • Any Primal Storms gear upgraded via Storm Sigils during the current Dragonflight Season

Keep in mind that necklaces, rings, and trinkets are never eligible for the Revival Catalyst. Cloaks, bracers, belts, and boots can be converted to obtain different stats and unlock transmog appearances, but they will not provide tier set bonuses.

Gear sources that cannot be converted via the Revival Catalyst include:

  • Crafted Gear acquired from professions, including both froh the Auction House or personally crafted
  • Regular dungeon gear
  • Regular quest rewards
  • Gear purchased or acquired via Renown reputation

Once you have the quest, fly to the location of the Revival Catalyst at 60, 53 in Tyrhold, and speak to the NPC Antuka next to the machine. This will officially unlock the Revival Catalyst for all characters on your account.
