WoW Dragonflight: How to get Dreaming Crests

We all need gear upgrades.

During World of Warcraft Dragonflight Patch 10.2, your main two currencies are Flightstones and Dreaming Crests. While you’re probably familiar with Flightstones, Dreaming Crests are a bit harder to come by.

Dreaming Crests come in different shapes and sizes, and they’re capped every week. Gear in season three will have six separate types of gear—Explorer, Adventurer, Veteran, Champion, Hero, and Mythic. Each type of gear will be upgraded with both Flightstones and Dreaming Crests.

Here’s how the Dreaming Crests work and can you get them in Dragonflight.

Dreaming Crests in WoW Dragonflight, explained

Dreaming Crests are a gearing currency found in your Currency tab that you can use to upgrade various pieces of gear. There are four types of Dreaming Crests and you can easily trade them upwards. They exchange at a six-to-one ratio, meaning that 90 lesser Dreaming Crests equals 15 better ones. But this counts toward your weekly cap. 

On top of all that, once you cap out one type of Dreaming Crest, you get lesser ones. For example, if you cap out Wyrm’s Dreaming Crests, you’ll start getting Drake’s Dreaming Crests.
