M+ Loot And Item Level in BfA

The way loot works in Mythic plus dungeons may be a bit confusing at first glance. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

When Do I Get Loot In M+?

Just in case you are new to Mythic+ dungeons or a bit rusty, this is how loot works:

  • You do not get any loot from mobs or bosses
  • Your group will receive at least one chest of loot upon completing a dungeon no matter if you beat the timer or not
  • Two or even three chests if you manage to complete within certain timers
  • Every weekly reset you will be rewarded with a big Grand Challenger’s Bounty chest, containing an item with significant higher item level
  • Your weekly chest can contain a piece of Azerite Armor but that’s not guaranteed

What Item Level Does Mythic Plus Reward?

The system might be a bit complicated at first glance but it gets real easy once you’re used to it.


  • the item level of your end-of-run chests is bound to the respective keystone level you complete
  • The item level of your weekly chest reward is tied to the highest keystone you managed to complete in the week before
  • Weekly chest can contain Azerite Gear

M+ Item Level Scaling

Keystone Upon Completion Weekly Non-Azerite Weekly Azerite
+0 340
+2 345 355 340
+3 345 355 340
+4 350 360 355
+5 355 360 355
+6 355 365 355
+7 360 370 370
+8 365 370 370
+9 365 375 370
+10 or higher 370 380 385

Azerite Power Rewards From M+

Of course you will receive big chunks of Azerite for completing M+ dungeons and from your weekly chest as well. The exact amount may vary depending on the keystone level you’ve run.

What Loot Do I Get From Mythic Plus?

The items you’ll find in your well earned M+ chests are randomly chosen from each dungeons complete loot table. In other words: if you need that ring from that first boss in Atal’Dazar, you will need to run the complete dungeon and hope for good RNG once you’ve completed it.
