Here we outline some simple instructions on how to acquire trinkets for your character.
World Quests, Mission Table, Tribute Rewards
Trinkets can be acquired through World Quests in Ardenweald, Bastion, Maldraxxus, and Revendreth at varying ilevels (based upon your current ilevel and Covenant Renown). Additionally a lot of the same trinkets, as well as different ones, can also be acquired through the Mission Table or from Tribute Rewards from Covenant Callings such as Tribute of the Paragon.
Some examples of these are:
It’s worth noting that item rewards from World Quests scale with your item level with a cap as to how high it can go based upon your Covenant Renown level, so as you continue to improve your gear and increase your renown it’s still beneficial to watch World Quests for rewards that may be better than what you currently have equipped even if it’s the same item.

There is currently only one crafted trinket available, which is the Spiritual Alchemy Stone made by Alchemists and requires level 100 in Shadowlands Alchemy.
Darkmoon Faire Trinkets
Both Darkmoon Fair deck trinkets that are suitable for casters are item level 200. These can be purchased on the auction house or you can buy/farm and collect the cards individually to create the trinket.
- Darkmoon Deck: Putrescence
- Darkmoon Deck: Repose – This is more geared towards a healer, but will work in a pinch.
Here is a list of bind on equip trinkets for DPS casters that can be sometimes be found on the auction house. Currently there only appears to be a single BoE trinket that is not a Darkmoon trinket.
Open World Trinkets
Defeating rares, or opening chests in Korthia, has a chance to award players with Korthian Armaments, which can also be bought for 1000 Stygia from Duchess Mynx. This item can be sent to your other characters, and when used, creates an item suitable for your class. It can contain Tome of Insight, a stat proc trinket with a high uptime, which can be upgraded up to item level 233, after reaching Rank 6 with the Archivist’s Codex reputation.
While some of these aren’t the best trinkets for PvE content, they are rather easy to obtain. These trinkets can be purchased with Honor, which can be relatively easily acquired through unrated battlegrounds. These trinkets start out at item level 158 and can be upgraded relatively inexpensively to higher item levels with additional Honor points.
To redeem your Honor points and purchase one of these trinkets you can find the Vendors in Oribos. For detailed information you can view the Shadowlands PvP Vendors, Rewards, & Gear guide on Warcraft Tavern.
- Sinful Aspirant’s Insignia of Alacrity – 700 Honor
This is our pick for a PvP trinket for casual players for PvE content, as it does not introduce anything into your rotation.
- Sinful Aspirant’s Badge of Ferocity – 700 Honor
The following are available but not nearly as helpful in PvE content as the two above.
- Sinful Aspirant’s Medallion – 525 Honor
- Sinful Aspirant’s Relentless Brooch – 525 Honor
- Sinful Aspirant’s Sigil of Adaptation – 525 Honor
