With patch 9.0.5, those who wish to upgrade their own equipment via Valor Points must first complete certain Mythic+ dungeon achievements for the respective upgrade levels. So if you want to upgrade an item to a new item level, you must first have mastered the dungeons of a certain keystone level. However, the question players have been asking is: Do these achievements apply account-wide?
Twinks do not need to complete the achievements again
An interview with Ion Hazzikostas, Frank Kowalkowski and Ely Cannon on Chinese WoW websites provides a clear answer to this question. The developers said that the Keystone achievement is valid for all characters on the same account and that these characters benefit accordingly. This confirms our previous assumption that the progress for the Valor Point system is account-wide, because the Keystone achievements also work account-wide.
However, because the developers at Blizzard haven't confirmed this statement anywhere else yet, we can't currently be completely sure that the achievements really do apply account-wide. However, judging by Blizzard's previous Twink strategy, we assume that you will indeed be able to upgrade your equipment with your Twinks without having to complete the necessary Keystone dungeons and Achievements again.
However, we'll find out in a few days on the live servers how the keystone achievements and upgrading gear via bravery points are in practice. Because on March 10, 2021, Patch 9.0.5 will be released, which will introduce Valor Points as the new (old) currency.
