wow Cataclysm Timewalking Bonus Event (13th - 18th April)

1 post in this topic


April is underway and the next event has arrived! Delve into your favourite dungeons of the Cataclysm expansion with Timewalking!


With gear scaled down and our characters placed at level 85, it's time for you to re-experience some of the best dungeons from the era of Deathwing! These include:

  • Grim Batol
  • The Stonecore
  • Lost City of Tol'vir
  • The Vortex Pinnacle
  • Throne of the Tides
  • End Time

Before you venture out into the dungeons, make sure to grab the weekly quest, A Shattered Path Through Time, which grants a inv_treasurechest_felfirecitadel.jpgIron Fleet Treasure Chest, 1 bonus roll seal and 500 Valor.


If you want to check out some of our tips for farming the dungeons, we've listed some of the tips from our previous Cataclysm Timewalking post below:


How can I farm these badges quickly? 


The currency for all of these items, Timewarped Badges, is quite a laborious task to farm. We're here to help you know exactly how many of these dungeons you need to farm and how quickly you can be doing them.
First, let's outline all the places these badges come from:

  • Item drop from the first dungeon you complete: 500 badges. (Once per event)
  • Call-to-Arms bonus: 50 badges.
  • Completing a dungeon: 10 badges.
  • Normal boss kill: 5 badges.
  • End boss kill: 10 badges.

When attempting to farm these badges, I would recommend finding another 4 people that are aiming for a similar number of badges. Since players below level 100 can queue up, often their lack of abilities can slow the run down quite a bit. Find other players and queue as a group of 5.
The next thing to make sure your runs are quick and smooth is gear. I'm sure you think I'm a bit strange suggesting farming gear since everything is scaled down, but some gear is better than others in Timewalking. Take a look at some of our tips:

  • Legendaries are amazingly powerful

​This goes without saying, but I feel I should bring it up anyway. Legendary effects work in Timewalking and they are simply incredible. In certain instances, legendaries such as the legendary cloaks can make you destroy the DPS of other players in your group. 


The melee legendary cloak from Mists of Pandaria.

  • Gem slots don't scale down

One of the biggest boosts to your output is going to be gems. Gems in Timewalking are simply incredible. Take the scenario of a Cataclysm dungeon in which you have on inv_bracer_plate_raiddeathknight_k_01.jpBracers of Destructive Strength. The bracers will give you a base stat of +9 strength, but there are two red gem slots. We can fill these gem slots with epic gems to allow for a bonus +20 strength. I'm sure you can see how this adds up over all your items.
Make sure to farm gear that has a large number of gem slots regardless of the other stats on the item. 
If you are looking for a Best-in-Slot gear list, make sure to check out this spreadsheet.

  • Make sure you don't use any %-based trinkets

The best example I can give to support this claim is the Warrior class trinket from Archimonde, ability_fomor_boss_pillar02.jpgWorldbreaker's Resolve. When used at level 100, it grants a 21.96% bonus on its effect at item level 705. If used in Cataclysm Timewalking, the bonus drops to 1.82%, rendering it useless. 
Hopefully some of the tips listed here might be able to help you understand Timewalking a bit better. Put on your rose-tinted glasses and get farming!


The event will run from the 13th - 18th April; if you want to check out some of the other events of the month, you can go to our monthly survival post.

      You may have heard the term sniper when it comes down to gold making. Let's look at this powerful TSM feature in more detail.
      Sniper is TradeSkillMaster's powerful function which allows real-time AH scanning. While performing the scan, it constantly fetches the last page of the Auction House for auctions that have been posted way below what they should sell for. Items that have been posted cheap by accident also show up on your scan list for a quick buyout. All you need is a proper setup.
      How Much Gold Can I Make on Average?
      It's hard to tell as you would need to have Auction House opened all the time and the more you scan the more gold you can earn. What I'd suggest is to have a separate WoW account just for Sniping. This way, you can constantly scan and also enjoy the game on your main account at the same time.
      Here are some of my latest snipes listed by their average resale profit. See Obliterum in that list? That was an accident.

      Where Do I Get TSM?
      Download it via the official website of TradeSkillMaster. It's good to install complement addons, such as TSM Destroy, Vendoring or the entire suite. The TSM desktop app available for both Windows/Mac is also a must, so you don't have to constantly rescan the Auction House. Setup
      Run the TSM app before launching the game. Addons obviously need to be placed in the */Addons folder as usual and enabled in-game. The Formula
      First we need to define Custom Prices and minprice. Type /TSM and on the firs tab, navigate to Custom Price Sources and insert the following code, hit okay.
      max(min(DBHistorical, DBGlobalMarketAvg, DBGlobalHistorical, DBRegionMarketAvg, DBRegionHistorical), VendorSell)
      Now we need to define our sniper formula. It is used to filter out all the items to tell us which is the best to buy and resell. You can configure it under Options/Core Features and from the "Module Options" dropdown, go to Shopping > Sniper Options. We'll be inserting our custom formula in the field just under the "Test Selected Sound" button.
      I have been using the fomula of BilisOnyxia for some time now and this is the code you need to insert there.
      check(minprice - 100000g, 90% minprice, check(minprice - 50000g, 80% minprice, check(minprice - 10000g, 60% minprice, check(minprice - 5000g, 50% minprice, check(minprice - 1000g, 30% minprice, check(minprice - 500g, 20% minprice, check(minprice - 50g, 10% minprice))))))) What Does It Mean?
      The check() function works like an if/else conditional statement. The function can take 2-3 parameters. Each parameter is seperated by a comma. What the check() function does is, it checks if the first parameter is greater than zero. If it is, it will use the second parameter. If it is not greater than zero (equal to or smaller than zero) it will use the third parameter (If there is no third parameter the whole function will result in an invalid price).
      So, check(DBMarket - 100g, 50% DBMarket, 30% DBMarket) would first check whether the result of "DBMarket - 100g" is greater than zero. If it is, it will use 50% DBMarket, if it is not it will use 30% DBMarket. What this means is, if an item has a DBMarket value of more than 100g, 50% DBMarket will be used, if it has a DBMarket value of 100g or less, 30% DBMarket will be used.
      Knowing how the check() function works, you might already see where the formula is going.
      Here is a little easier to read breakdown of the formula:
      If an item's value is greater than 100k gold, use 90%. If an item's value is greater than 50k gold, use 80%. If an item's value is greater than 10k gold, use 60%. If an item's value is greater than 5k gold, use 50%. If an item's value is greater than 1k gold, use 30%. If an item's value is greater than 500g gold, use 20%. If an item's value is greater than 50g, use 10%. If an item's value is 50g or less, exclude it no matter how cheap it gets listed. We're all set now, navigate to the last tab of the Auction House UI > Custom Filter / Other Sources and click "Start Sniper". This will start the scan, you can set up the sound you want to hear when an item appears in the list for quick buyout.

      Sniper Results Awareness
      Sniping is supposed to be semi-automated. It still requires common sense as some results may be false positives, like duped Saber's gems, which are often underpriced.

      The boss has been found and killed! See how to do it yourself as well as a mount pic and boss fight video.
      Update 2: ZosynPriest has discovered Nightbane is a timed event, similar to Zul'Aman. Once you enter the instance, you'll have a fixed timer, indicated by the "The strange chill of a dark presence winds through the air" emote and from that moment you have exactly eight minutes to finish the Opera event and click Soul Fragment.
      Failing the Event gives you the following emote: "The air grows slightly warmer".
      After collecting the first fragment, you will get a buff Medivh's Echo, which is now your new timer.

      You can gain +5 minutes for every fragment you collect.
      1 is in Opera audience 1 before the Maiden of Virtue 1 after killing Moroes 1 in the Spider Room 1 after Curator When you manage to complete it in time, your buff will change to Medivh's Presence. Go to Nightbane's room and talk to Medivh. It awards the One Night in Karazhan and he will summon Nightbane for you. After wipes Nightbane won't despawn.
      Update: It seems some players have already summoned Nightbane. Observing the player's armory he doesn't have the last boss achievement. Maybe he finished the quest line already by switching lockouts.
      My theory was that Nightbane became available during the final part of the quest. Why? Look at the list of the following items. All are a requirement for the above quests and guess what? The items are always +1 by ID and go from first to last (all are quest items related to Karazhan ring quest line).
      Empty Box of Motivator Crystals Box of 'New' Horseshoes Bouquet of Roses Positive Review Negative Review Negative Review Little Red's Cape  Charred Bone Fragments (party loot) start the following quest that isn't in-game yet. We'll probably assemble Nightbane from the bone fragments -> Nightbane Transform.   
      Remember the Violet Seal of the Archmage? New versions of the old Karazhan ring have been added. They can be obtained through a series of quests that might lead to Nightbane
      There are four versions of the ring ranging from item level 850 up to 875.
      Violet Seal of the Archmage Fragments of the Past need to be completed to get the initial version of the ring. Violet Seal of the Archmage Complete Book Wyrms followed by Rebooting the Cleaner to get the first ring upgrade. Violet Seal of the Archmage Now for the third upgrade there are no quests in any databases. I fiddled around with in-game linking and found two more quests, which will likely upgrade the ring to its 860 version.
      The horseshoes can be a drop from Attumen or Midnight.

      Violet Seal of the Grand Magus The last ring has the same item level as Nightbane loot and offers a teleport to Karazhan on a 4-hour cooldown. I assume it's the final reward after defeating Nightbane.

      2 days, 2 hotfixes, with relatively minor changes, but Warlocks can now be Warlocks again and enslave demons above level 109! And, as usual with hotfixes there is one "finally, why did it take them this long!" in here as well, as we'll stop getting as many follower item level missions if we have all of them maxed out on ilevel!
      October 26th
      Death Knight
      Fixed a bug that caused Dark Transformation to not trigger some additional effects, and not correctly transform abominations into flesh golems. Druid
      Fixed a bug where Shred could sometimes fail to deal damage or generate combo points. Full Moon is again in the Arcane school. Hunter
      Bestial Fury will correctly increase Bestial Wrath's damage bonus to your pet and Hati. Warlock
      Enslave Demon can correctly target enemies up to one level above the caster. Class Halls
      Missions will be less likely to offer follower armor set items to players that have maxed out the item level of all their champions. Items
      The legendary Rogue ring Insignia of Ravenholdt should now be able to hit creatures with large hitboxes. The legendary Warlock belt Power Cord of Lethtendris should no longer incorrectly have a chance to be activated by targets that already have Unstable Affliction. PvP
      Honor Talents
      Thorns now has a 1 second cooldown between procs. Quests
      Killing the Waking Nightmare first during quest, "Waking Nightmares" will no longer prevent players from seeing Slumbering Nightmare. Previous hotfixes.

      Cleared Heroic and Normal Emerald Nightmare in the first week of it's release.
      Classes Needed:
      Balance Druid
      Shadow Priest
      Always looking for exceptional DPS of any class.

      About Us: 
      We are a guild, made up of former members of <Red Shift> and <Casually Addicted>, on Bleeding Hollow (PvP Server on a Chicago Datacenter) that have a common goal and will do what is necessary to achieve it. We are Shifty Casuals.
      We are a group of professional adults, who believe success in raiding doesn't correlate to number in days/hours you spend raiding. We are starting a fresh page within our guild history and sticking to a 3 day a week raid schedule.
      We don't tolerate elitism, bigotry, misogyny or any of the like. We enjoy our calm, adult environment and have no qualms with protecting it.
      We do loot council which is fair and distributes loot for the progression of the raid as a whole and not an individual player. No favoritism, no loot drama.
      We have our sights set on top 100 US for Legion and are looking for like-minded individuals to join our ranks.

      Raid Days and Times (All times in EST as that is our server time):
      · Tuesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Wednesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Thursday 8:45pm-11:45pm

      Who We Want:
      Since we are reforming and building for the expansion now is a great time to get in on the ground floor and clear content with us, while prepping for the new expansion. These are some key traits that we are looking for:
      · Someone who understands that 3 nights a week raiding means that you need to bring your A-game each and every night. Attendance is expected to be near 100%. By committing to raid, you are committing yourself to our raiding schedule.
      · The ability to perform under pressure. We only recruit impressive players, and spots are always competitive.
      · Extensive class knowledge of your class. (IE: Alpha/beta testing, keeping up with theorycrafting, properly gemmed/enchanted, always be up to date on the intricacies of your class (not solely your spec(s)) and on the utility of the entire raid group.)
      · A computer that can handle 20-30 man raiding and the ability to communicate via VOIP when needed. You must have a working headset and mic, and you must be prepared to use them. We will not read chat during boss fights. Inability to give a vocal response will not be tolerated as it directly hinders progression.
      · Tough skin. We're always looking to improve ourselves as should you. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but flaming and insulting is not tolerated whatsoever.

      If you have what it takes to be a part of this great team and community, feel free to apply at our website  If you have questions about the application process, contact any of the officers for additional information.
