How to get the Keystone Hero achievement in WoW Dragonflight

Eyes on the prize.

The main reason World of Warcraft players spend hours and hours grinding Mythic+ dungeons is gear. While some players only have their eyes set on the loot, others do it for fame, or rather the titles and achievements, namely the Keystone Master and Keystone Hero achievements.

Blizzard Entertainment designed four different thresholds players can reach to keep players going during seasons—Keystone Explorer, Keystone Conqueror, Keystone Master, and Keystone Hero. Each achievement gives you a reward that can only be obtained during that specific season.

Keystone Hero is the highest achievement you can get from running Mythic+ dungeons and here’s everything you need to do to get this achievement in Dragonflight.

How do you get the Keystone Hero achievement in WoW Dragonflight?

The Keystone Hero achievement in Dragonflight is straightforward since all you need to do to get the achievement is reach a 2500 rating, But getting the actual achievement is far more complicated than the achievement itself.

You’ll be rewarded with Mythic+ rating for each Mythic+ dungeon you complete. The higher and the faster you go, the more rating you’ll gain. Completing a 5+ key, for example, will give you more rating than a 2+ timed run. Concluding your run within a previously set time period will also give you more rating.

While you’ll have to roughly complete all dungeons on both Fortified and Tyrannical difficulty in time with a 13+ key or higher for the KSM achievement, Keystone Hero will take a bit more time and effort because you will have to make a big push toward that 2500 mark. Although you can mix and match dungeons to your liking, the easiest way to get Keystone Hero is by completing +17 and +18 Mythic+ dungeons in time. 

Bear in mind the achievement is no longer a standalone achievement and it falls under the Dragonflight season two Hero achievement, a new seasonal achievement that tasks you with obtaining one of the three following achievements:

  • Dragonflight Keystone Hero: Season Two
  • Elite: Dragonflight season two
  • Mythic: Scalecommander Sarkareth

This achievement comes with Obsidian Aspectral Earthstone, which will unlock “additional visual effects for certain Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible class set appearances.”
