- Press Activate

- Loot iLvL scales with Mythic+ level, from 860 to 900.
- Mythic+ Dungeons only have loot at the very end, if you have completed all objectives (watch trash mob kills!).
- Mythic+ mode gives NO id, this means you can do as much as you want, as long as anyone in your group has a keystone.
- Depleted keystones gives no loot(!), but if you beat the timer it will be charged again.
- Loot is guaranteed even the timer runs out, if a charged keystone was used to start the Dungeon.
