Timewalking Highlight: The Arcatraz (Spoilers on Patch 6.2 Date?)

Recommended Posts

12604-timewalking-highlight-the-arcatraz

 

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?

      Here's a video covering everything coming in the War Within pre-patch event on July 30th.
      Radiant Echoes, the pre-patch event, will begin on July 30, based on the splash screen. We covered the whole event in great detail, but for those who need a reminder:
      You must complete a short quest that leads you to the Dalaran Chamber where you can teleport to Dustwallow March, Searing Gorge, and Dragonblight. When a Radiant Echo is active, you must port to the zones, slay Lingering Memories and "Remembred" mobs to gather Residual Memories that you can turn in for rewards. The whole event ends in slaying Remembered Onyxia, Remembered Ragnaros, or Remembered Lich King, based on the zone you're in. Rewards include Warbound ilvl 480 gear, mounts, battle pets, bags, and more. You can find the quartermaster either in the Dalaran Chamber or in each of the zones. The event will most likely be available until the TWW Early Access begins on August 22 or when the expansion launches on August 26. For more details check out our detailed preview of Radiant Echoes, but you should also check out MrGM's latest video because the whole event has been bugged on both Beta and the PTR for me and I couldn't get a single Lingering Memory to spawn.

      The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
      Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests that Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024.
      This would give players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
      We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
      Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!
