Korthia is the new quest area in patch 9.1, where you can expect the new reputation faction Death's Advance, where newcomers, stragglers, and twinks can upgrade their item level with Korthian gear. For 1,000 Stygia, you will receive an Armor Token, via which you will receive a random Item Level 200 item. This Korthian armor token is Blizzard account-bound and can be sent to your Twinks with it. Items that have already been converted are soulbound, and you can only send the token.
Duchess Mynx (Armorer of the Advance of Death faction) will sell you the Korthian Equipment). Source: buffed Korthian equipment can be upgraded to item level 233 by the NPC Scholar's Assistant Kah-Vez (coordinates 62/21, Korthia). The upgrades do not require Valor Points, however, but a brand new resource called Catalogued Research. The resource and upgrade levels are tied to a new faction or NPC.
Archivist Roh-Suir is located right next to Kah-Vez forms the new faction "The Archivist Codex". You can turn in relics to him and convert the relics into Catalogued Research. You can get the relics from various sources in Korthia (quests, rare mobs, treasure, etc.). The more relics you give him, the more research levels you unlock. There are six research levels in total. Each level up will let you upgrade your Korthian equipment further, until it can eventually be upgraded to item level 233 at level 6. In the table below you can see at which level upgrades are possible and how much the upgrade costs.

With item level 233, you're almost ready for the mythic tasks of the new raid or giving your Twink good gear for dungeons.
