Revival Catalyst Guide for Dragonflight

Written by Leyst - 20th April 2024

It has recently been confirmed that the Revival Catalyst will be available again for Dragonflight Season 4 (Patch 10.2.6).

It will be available from the launch of Season 4, starting with 1 charge and automatically gaining 1 additional charge across your account every week (1 charge is applied to all of your characters). These charges are 1 per character, so all of your characters can use their own charge at the start of Season 4.

For a list of Class Tier Set items and the Stats each item has, you can read our List of Dragonflight Season 4 Class Tier Set Items and their Stats.

Revival Catalyst Release Date?

The Season 4 Revival Catalyst release date is April 23rd in North America and April 24th in Europe.

History of Revival Catalyst Changes

The Revival Catalyst received some significant changes over the course of Dragonflight, some of which include:

  • With the release of Patch 10.2.5 (Seeds of Renewal) on January 16th, the Revival Catalyst charges increased to 1 charge per week for the remainder of the Season.
  • Patch 10.1 had the removal of the weekly quest to acquire charges, moving to automatically gaining a charge for all characters on your account.

How to unlock the Revival Catalyst

To unlock the Revival Catalyst, you start by accepting the "Reviving the Machine" quest from Watcher Koranos at the top of the Seat of the Aspects (at the top of the highest tower in Valdrakken).

To complete this quest, simply fly over to the location of the Revival Catalyst and hand the quest into Antuka, the NPC stood next to the Revival Catalyst Console.

What is the Revival Catalyst?

The Revival Catalyst allows you to transform non-tier items into tier pieces of the same item level. However, only head, shoulder, chest, hand, and leg items will be transformed into tier set pieces that provide bonuses (2-set and 4-set bonuses). The remaining items can either be converted into transmog items like bracers, cloaks, belts, and boots, or equipped because they may offer better stats for some classes.

How to get Revival Catalyst Charges

Each character will have a maximum limit of 8 charges for the Revival Catalyst. These charges are automatically gained by all characters on your account, 1 per week, and each character can use them separately (not sharing from a pool of charges).

The Season 4 Revival Catalyst will be available in the first week of the season, starting with 1 charge and then receiving one additional charge every week.

Final Notes

Please keep in mind that you can still enhance your items using Flightstones and Crests, just like any other gear. Upgrading your items will preserve the path progress, as well as any Sockets and Tertiary Stats (such as Speed) they possess. However, it's important to note that Crafted Gear and Items obtained through Renown tracks are not eligible for use with the Revival Catalyst.
