Which types of content would you add to the Great Vault?

The Great Vault is one of the most promising additions from the Shadowlands expansion. It allows players to get a weekly reward by doing the content of their preference, whether it be raiding, Mythic dungeons, or PVP. Except… there are a whole bunch of caveats to that. For instance: Why is it that the raiding pane allows one to get rewards from LFR, which is “casual” content you can queue for, but the dungeon pane requires you to do Mythic+, instead of regular Mythics? Same deal with the PVP pane: Only rated content? Why don’t they allow players to earn those rewards by queuing for unrated battlegrounds?

I would love to see this system being expanded to become the de-facto weekly reward dispenser of World of Warcraft — no matter which kind of player you are. It’s not like this would be unbalanced, or “break” the game: The reward item level is proportional to the content you did, after all. If you only do LFR, your rewards will be of a smaller item level than if you did Mythic+. In that case, where is the harm in allowing players to get a lower item level reward from doing their regular Mythics, or even their Heroics?

And what’s more, some players have even suggested that Torghast should be added as an avenue for getting items from the Great Vault, and I think that’s a fantastic idea. Torghast is very fun, but there are many ways in which it could be improved; and while adding loot to it would probably be a herculean task for the development team, simply allowing players to collect a weekly piece of gear by trying higher and higher layers of Torghast would most certainly be a much simpler solution.

Having the Great Vault be a thing that every WoW player aspires to open, no matter which kind of content they prefer, from the most casual to the most hardcore, would make this system phenomenal, in my view. But what do you think? Do you agree that more types of content should be added to the Great Vault? And which kinds of content would you like to see counting towards this reward system? Let us know!
