SWEET VICTORY: The Great Vault is waiting

Depending on what content you cleared last week, your Great Vault gear could be massively strong with high ilvl, and you'll have more options depending on how many milestones you completed.

Just keep in mind, though, that you still only can retrieve one item from your Great Vault each week - so be selective!
