The Revival catalyst has arrived in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, alongside the 10.0.5 update. It’s quite a problem if you participate in many endgame activities, such as raids or Mythic+. It is also beneficial for more casual players as it can help you increase your character’s strength significantly.
If you’ve played in the later part of Shadowlands, you may be familiar with the Creation Catalyst in Zereth Mortis, which allowed you to convert normal loadouts into tier setpieces. The Revival Catalyst is the Dragonflight version and I’ll show you where to find it in this guide, along with the weekly quest that will unlock the payloads to use it.
WoW Revival Catalyst unlock mission: Reviving the Machine

You can pick up the Revival Catalyst quest, Revive the machine, from the Seat of the Aspects in Valdrakken. Look for Watcher Koranos to the left of the dragon aspects – although I should point out it looks like you need to be level 70 to pick up the quest, so if it’s not an option that’s probably why.
This quest will lead you to the location of the Revival Catalyst, which can be found east of Valdrakken near Tyrhold. Antuka, the Catalyst Steward, is to the right of the Revival Catalyst console. She offers you the weekly quest, Revival Catalyst, to earn charges that will allow you to use the catalyst. This quest is quite easy to complete and all the contents of the Dragonflight group should be used to fill the progress bar. It’s also account-wide, so you can do it for any character.
It’s also worth noting that Antuka only offers this quest if you’ve picked up the Reviving the Machine quest from Valdrakken.
How the Revival Catalyst works
Non-tiered gear from Season 1 content – Mythic+ or the Vault of the Incarnates attack – can be transformed into a tier-set piece with one charge at the Revival Catalyst. The item you want to transform must also be for one of the following slots:
You can transform gear for the slots not listed here, but they don’t become level pieces and instead take on the appearance of the level set. So, unless you’re big on transmog, it’s unwise to waste a load. Created equipment cannot be changed in this way.
To use the Revival Catalyst, drag the piece of gear you want to modify into the console’s interface and check that the preview result is what you expect. If it looks good, click “Transform” to get your new level set.
