As a continuation of the trickle of information on Patch 6.2, Blizzard posted a preview of The Arcatraz - a Burning Crusade dungeon - that will be featured in the Timewalking weekend event. The post has since been edited, but may have accidentally pointed to Patch 6.2's release date.

 

BlizzardWatch captured the unedited post here, suggesting a possible Patch 6.2 release date of June 23 (in line with the expectations set by the timing of the Warlords Season 1 Ending Soon post).

 

The complete post details (as edited) follow:

 

Timewalking

 

In World of Warcraft Patch 6.2, we're introducing a new series of seven different weekend events, and two of the seven weekends will make Timewalking Dungeons available to characters at level 71 and higher for Outland dungeons or 81 and higher for Northrend dungeons. When you Timewalk these dungeons, you’ll find that your character’s power and gear has been scaled down to a fraction of what they normally are, and you may have never ventured into some (or all) of them, so it's a good idea to prepare yourself now.

 


 

Outland: The Arcatraz

 

The mighty Tempest Keep was created by the enigmatic naaru: sentient beings of pure energy and the sworn enemies of the Burning Legion. In addition to serving as a base of operations for the naaru, the structure itself possesses the technology to teleport through alternate dimensions, traveling from one location to another in the blink of an eye.

With Outland serving as the strategic battlefront in the ongoing Burning Crusade, the naaru recently used Tempest Keep to reach the shattered land. However, when the naaru set out from their stronghold, Prince Kael'thas and his blood elves quickly raided the dimensional fortress and assumed control over its satellite structures. Now, guided by some unknown purpose, Kael'thas manipulates the keep's otherworldly technologies, using them to harness the chaotic energies of the Netherstorm itself.

Zereketh the Unbound

 

Most creatures from the Twisting Nether require constant directions from their masters, but a select few voidwraiths need no such orders. Zereketh stands at the entrance to Arcatraz, ready to slay all who would dare challenge him.

Dalliah The Doomsayer

 

Before she was imprisoned by the naaru, Dalliah was one of the most vicious and aggressive warriors within the Burning Legion. Spending so much time as a cellmate to Wrath-Scryer Soccothrates did not improve her disposition either.

Wrath-Scryer Soccothrates

 

Millennia ago, Soccothrates held a position of honor among the Wrathguards, standing at the side of the Burning Legion's top commanders. Confinement did not suit his considerable ego. Neither did his cellmate.

Harbinger Skyriss

 

The naaru believed the persuasive voice of Harbinger Skyriss was silenced when they contained him and forced him into a long, dreamless sleep. The unfortunate warden of Arcatraz learned the naaru were wrong.

 

Tips

  • Zereketh is known for summoning void zones. Run out of them immediately!
  • Zereketh's Seed of Corruption causes his victim to explode with damage. It's best to stand apart when you're the seedy one.
  • Dalliah's Whirlwind should be avoided by all but the stoutest of tanks.
  • Her Gift of the Doomsayer channels healing to you if you have it. Healers beware!
  • Stay out of Soccothrates' fel fire.
  • The one and only Millhouse Manastorm assists you in your battle with Harbinger Skyriss and his many "friends". Keep Millhouse alive. 

 

Achievements and Reputation

 

If you’ve not gotten them before, completing this dungeon will award The Arcatraz and Heroic: The Arcatraz, the latter of which is required for Outland Dungeon Hero.

 

Killing enemies in this dungeon increases your standing with The Sha’tar. For a full breakdown of what you can do with Sha’tar reputation, check out Wowhead and Wowpedia.

 

Get in there and Fight!

 

Timewalking dungeons are coming to WoW with Patch 6.2: Fury of Hellfire. Keep an eye out for the weekend-only quest "A Burning Path Through Time", which rewards a Seal of Inevitable Fate when you complete five Burning Crusade Timewalking dungeons.

 

 

 

Are you looking forward to enjoying Timewalking in Patch 6.2?

      Summary of the latest Q/A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas about Patch 7.3.5 and beyond.
      Watch Now
      No questions about WoW Classic will be answered in this Q/A. In BfA, the Azerite system adds depth and customization that was used for Tier sets. For Battle for Azeroth, a lot of art variety will be added to the armor. There will be 1 appearance per armor type though, but more variety across zones. For transmog collectors it means more customization. There will be unique trinkets from raids. Azerite armor from raids will provide properties that can be found only in raids. Assembling people and maintaining schedule needs to feel worthwhile and properly rewarding. Patch 7.3.5 TL;DR: We'll see zone scaling, Legion epilogue quest content, Ulduar Timewalking and a preview of the new Silithus battleground (Seething Shore). In BfA, the focus shifts from racial identity to the faction conflict. Unlocking Allied races is more story-driven. Reputation barriers will be lifted. Doing the campaign should suffice. Heritage armor is restricted to races. More Allied races will be added in the future, but they want to add those that make sense story-wise first. Hunched races - Orc is the big one here. From the early beginning, we saw Thrall / Saurfang that had proper posture and it was a repeated request and they totally understand it. Darskpear Trolls will remain hunched - it's a part of the troll silhouette. Zandalari Trolls are upright though. Prestige system in BfA? They're looking at how the feeling of progression has been in Legion and are re-evaluating a lot of stuff. They want to make sure Prestige rewards are still available. Artifact skins in BfA  will be spec-restricted. Far fewer Legendary items will be seen in BfA, Blizzard will make them where it makes sense. As of now, they have no specific Legendaries in mind. No plans to change the Mythic raid size at the moment. The raid structure remained the same in Warlords, Legion and the trend will continue in BfA. They want to explore an option to enable Mythic cross-server raiding sooner. The team feels that Tomb of Sargeras was too difficult on Mythic difficulty. A few months after Antorus opens, there will be nerfs to Aggramar and Argus the Unmaker on Mythic. Is Aman'Thul's Vision personal loot? There's value in preserving discovery. We'll see in two weeks. When Mythic Antorus opens (Dec 5), you'll be able to get Mythic rewards up to +15. Order Hall Cache rewards will be retroactive.  Will Titanforging still allow you to get Mythic quality gear in Normal raids? Yes. It's about the moment of surprise. While you can still get a lucky drop, the Mythic raider is in all cases better geared than that lucky player. Odds of Titanforging will be looked into. They think it's happening too often. The idea of upward loot scaling is being carried forward. The hard cap on Titanforging would limit progression. World PvP will be revitalized in BfA. Creating a space where players who are looking for PvP can more reliably run across each other is the priority right here. Some players don't want to server transfer, yet they are stuck on servers with faction imbalance. The current thinking is to preserve the identity of RP-PvP communities. Legion is the expansion that brought the biggest class changes to World of Warcraft. It's jarring to come back only to see your class vastly reworked. Demonology will see a significant rework and Survival Hunter (the execution of the fantasy will be looked into). In terms of class changes, a good analogy would be Wrath of the Lich King to Cataclysm transition, minus removing 20 points of talents and adding 3 abilities to every class. Class buffs provide utility and they are returning in BfA. Some Artifact traits will be made baseline or baked into talents. For example Stormkeeper is a new Elemental Shaman talent available in BfA. Removing drawbacks from abilities is an area they are the most hesitant to entrench. What's happening with Hati for BM? It won't be carried forward. It's tied to Titanstrike.  It's cool to have multiple pets up as BM. and it's definitely something they could expand upon in the future. Improving animations is a long-term effort. New Warlock animations should be ready for the BfA pre-patch. Relics diluted the excitement of weapon rewards. The plan is to go back to regular weapon drops. The Underlight Angler will be carried forward, unlike other Artifacts. 50 characters per account limit will probably not be increased, but they're listening to community feedback.

      Highmountain Taurens are one of the three Allied races available to the Horde in Battle for Azeroth. In this preview, we're looking at the requirements to create a Highmountain Tauren, class / customization options and racials.
      Descended from Huln, brave hero of the War of the Ancients, the Highmountain tauren honor the spirits of earth, river, and sky. Though the Legion invaded their lands and sowed seeds of distrust between them, the tribes of Highmountain stand united once more. At long last they are ready to venture beyond their sacred mountain and stand beside their kin from Kalimdor, lending their nobility and strength to the mighty Horde.
      Available Classes
      Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior Requirements
      In Danny's interview with Muffinus, we learned that you need to complete Ain't No Mountain High Enough and have some reputation standing with the Highmountain Tribe in order to gain access to a short quest chain to unlock the Allied race. Racials (Source)

      The Titan Pantheon themed trinkets coming with Antotus are definitely the most interesting piece of itemization that's come around in a while and they were pretty mysterious for a time when they were first datamined, but we've since found out exactly how they work and what's required for those secondary pocs to trigger. However, the exact numbers behind those procs, how many players would actually have to have them equipped to be optimal, what amount of DPS do the add, whether the legendary version was better than the regular ones and many more questions like that remained unanswered - until now.
      Ask Mr. Robot has put together this very useful infographic detailing pretty much any questions you might have about the upcoming trinkets, other than perhaps "when will one of these drop for me?"
      So, check out all the info you could possibly need and, in case you need a refresher, here are the actual trinkets themselves as well:
      Aggramar's Conviction; Aman'Thul's Vision; Eonar's Compassion; Golganneth's Vitality; Khaz'goroth's Courage; Norgannon's Prowess

      You should also check out the full blog post for additional info and details.

      In Battle for Azeroth, we're getting 6 new allied races that start at level 20. Alliance has access to Dark Iron Dwarves, Void Elves and the Lightforged Draenei, while the Horde can play as Nightborne, Highmountain Taurens and Zandalari Trolls!
      Here's a rundown of new sub-races available to both factions. In the screenshots, the characters are wearing what Blizzard calls Heritage Armor. It's a reward to show off your accomplishments and it is earned from leveling your Alied Hero character from 20 to 110. If you're buying a race change, you won't get it. In the What's Next Panel, we learned that it ignores armor types, so it seems all classes will be able to transmog the set once it's unlocked. Six allied races will be initially available and more will be added later on in the expansion. You can find out more information on the official website.
      Alliance
      Void Elves (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior) Lightforged Draenei (Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Warrior) Dark Iron Dwarves
      Horde
      Nightborne (Hunter, Mage, Monk, Priest, Rogue, Warlock, Warrior) Highmountain Taurens (Druid, Hunter, Monk, Shaman, Warrior) Zandalari Trolls
      Highmountain Tauren Racials (Passive)
      Bull Rush (Instant, 2 min cooldown)
      Charges forward for 1 sec, knocking enemies down for 1.5 sec. Mountaineer (Passive)
      Increases your Versatility by 1%. Pride of Ironhorn (Passive)
      Mining skill increased by 15 and allows you to mine faster. Rugged Tenacity
      Reduces damage taken by X. Waste Not, Want Not (Passive)
      You have a chance to loot additional meat and fish. (Source)
      Lightforged Draenei Racials
      Demonbane (Passive)
      Experience gains from killing Demons increased by 20%. Final Verdict (Passive)
      When you die the Light avenges you dealing X Holy Damage to enemies within 8 yards and healing allies for X. Forge of Light (Passive)
      Summon a Forge of Light, enabling Blacksmithing. Blacksmithing skill increased by 10.
      Light's Judgment (Instant, 2.5 min cooldown, 40 yd range)
      Call down a strike of Holy energy, dealing X Holy damage to enemies within 5 yards after 3 sec. The racial looks very similar to the Vindicaar Core Matrix Power on Argus > Light's Judgment. (Source @Kalrell's tweet // Sloot's stream)
