WoW Dragonflight Revival Catalyst guide: How to use it, all gear you can convert, and more

The ability to make your own tier gear is finally here.

At long last, the Revival Catalyst is coming to the World of Warcraft Dragonflight servers. The Revival Catalyst works almost identically to how the Creation Catalyst worked in Shadowlands by allowing players to turn pieces of non-tier gear into tier set pieces relevant to their class.

Whether you need a piece of gear from Mythic+ dungeons into tier gear to complete your four-set or are just looking to upgrade a slot in which you already have tier gear, the Revival Catalyst will assist in making your character stronger—with the blind-luck-oriented elements of raid drops essentially eliminated. 

With how hard gear is to come by in Dragonflight, especially tier gear, the Revival Catalyst will give players a chance to catch up and fill out slots on their characters with some powerful items and set bonuses. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the Revival Catalyst in WoW Dragonflight patch 10.2 (Nov. 7)

How to unlock the Revival Catalyst

After Patch 10.2, it’s no longer required to finish the quest ‘Revving the Machine‘ to unlock the Revival Catalyst. So, simply fly to 59.53 at Thaldraszus and look for a little telmpe on the left side. You’ll find the Catalyst inside, and you’ll be able to use it without any requirements.

How to get Revival Catalyst charges

Just like in Seasons one and two, we’ve got a new Catalyst charge currency for Season three called Renescent Dream. However, unlike Season Two, Renescent Dream recharges every two weeks instead of one, according to WoWhead. So, every two weeks, each of your characters gets a new charge, with a maximum of six charges per account.

What gear is eligible for the Revival Catalyst?

Almost all gear obtained from PvE and PvP activities in Dragonflight is eligible to be transformed into tier gear via the Revival Catalyst. Mythic+ gear earned from dungeons or the Great Vault can be changed into raid-relevant tier gear, while non-tier gear from the Vault of the Incarnates raid itself can be turned into tier set pieces via the Catalyst. PvP gear purchased with Conquest and Honor points can also be transformed into tier gear. 

When transforming your gear via the Revival Catalyst, the gear will keep all of its original stats, sockets, and enchantments that it had in its previous version. If you converted a piece of gear that has an upgrade track attached to it, you’ll still be able to upgrade the piece with Flightstones and Shadowflame Crests after it’s been transformed. 

The only gear you cannot change into tier pieces are items that are crafted and items that you earn through the Renown tracks of the four main Dragonflight reputations

Where to find the Revival Catalyst

The Revival Catalyst can be found just east of Valdrakken at coordinates 59, 53. You can easily reach the Catalyst if you fly from the Seat of the Aspects in Valdrakken—the Catalyst is even visible from the highest point in the city.
