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

Recommended Posts

20110-cataclysm-timewalking-bonus-event-

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.

  • 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.

      Blizzard has responded to feedback on the Delves, outlining upcoming changes and addressing a bug that has been concerning players.
      First off Brann is getting buffed, with a focus on his survivability, but also his general usefulness overall. Secondly, players have been commenting on mob respawns within Delves and it seems that's almost entirely unintended, as a bug made them respawn. There may be some exceptions, but enemies will not be coming back once we take them out.

      Hi everyone!
      Thank you so much for the great feedback so far. We are looking at improving Brann’s survivability and usefulness throughout the delves. It is also a bug that enemies respawn. Aside from some exceptions, once something is dead in a delve it should stay dead. We’ll also be reviewing tuning for different classes, along with improvements to the pain points that have been mentioned here within certain scenarios.
      Thanks again, and please keep the feedback coming!

      In a completely un-shocking turn of events, Danta has created another great, fast, and easy guide for a raid mount, and this time it’s the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement!
      Here’s the first hurdle: you have to do this raid 4 times to get the last achievement. Previously, this would have meant enduring 3 more "weekly" resets, which can be tedious as Danta himself admits. However, there’s a saving grace! Until MoP Remix ends, the Pandaria raids have a daily lockout instead of a weekly one, as confirmed by Blizzard.
      The second challenge is defeating the boss on Heroic difficulty. But the rewards - a ton of transmog gear and a cool-looking dino mount - make it worthwhile! 
      So what are we doing all this for? Well, completing the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement will award you the Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer , a pretty cool looking dino mount!

      Image Source: Wowpedia.
      Additionally, you have a chance to obtain two other mounts in the raid itself: the Clutch of Ji-Kun is a rare drop from Ji-Kun and the Spawn of Horridon which is a rare drop from, you guessed it, Horridon, and in another shocking twist, the mounts look just like the bosses themselves.

      Danta also recommends using the Instance Achievement Tracker Addon that helps keeping track if you met the criteria for the achievement. So thanks to him for another very useful guide and our brand new mount(s)!

      The War Within pre-patch brings significant changes to leveling in mid-July! Check them out!
      An Overview of Leveling Changes in the War Within Pre-Patch
      We don't have a release date for the pre-patch, but it should be releases in mid-July. Leveling from 10-70 will be much faster in the pre-patch. You will find a separate news article covering the XP nerf here. Every time you reach max level (80) with a Warband character, you will receive +5% additional XP on alts, stacking up to 25%. (Five Warband Mentors: The War Within) When you reach 80 with your first char, members of your Warband will receive a 5% XP buff. When you reach level 80 with your second char, members of your Warband will rece a 10% XP buff. Chromie Time now covers levels 10-71 and includes Dragonflight as the default option (changed from Battle for Azeroth). We've got some Riding changes too, you will receive Master Riding at Level 30 which equates to 420% speed. Player scan switch between Skyriding/Dragonriding and standard flying. The Skyriding Skill Track has become streamlined with most abilities becoming passive. It automatically unlocks for new players as they level. Dracthyr Evokers will start at Level 10 (down from 58), which is why you should create one now! The Warband system brings account-wide reputation for Dragonflight and War Within factions, Warband bank for sharing items and gold, account-wide flight paths, and the option to send currency to your alts. For more details about all the changes, check out MrGM's video linked below.

      With the release of the War Within pre-patch in July, the XP required to hit Level 70 will be massively nerfed and we've got the details!
      Average Change for Each 10-Level Bracket
      When the War Within pre-patch hits, leveling from 10-70 will become much faster, because the XP requirements have been drastically nerfed.
      Average change for levels 1-10: +2.56% Average change for levels 11-20: -16.27% Average change for levels 21-30: -15.79% Average change for levels 31-40: -16.75% Average change for levels 41-50: -18.45% Average change for levels 51-60: -34.65% Average change for levels 61-70: -75.80% In the War Within pre-patch, you will need 53.94% less XP in total compared to live servers to level from 1-70.

      Here we have a table comparing the current live and War Within pre-patch XP requirements with the percentage indicating by how much they've been nerfed.
      Level XP Required on Retail XP Required in War Within Pre-Patch Change in Percentage (%) 1 250 250 0.000000 2 590 595 0.847458 3 1065 1085 1.877934 4 1675 1715 2.388060 5 2420 2485 2.685950 6 3305 3405 3.025719 7 4325 4460 3.121387 8 5485 5660 3.190520 9 6775 7005 3.394834 10 8205 8490 3.473492 11 9765 8150 -16.538658 12 11030 9210 -16.500453 13 12360 10335 -16.383495 14 13755 11510 -16.321338 15 15220 12745 -16.261498 16 16750 14035 -16.208955 17 18345 15385 -16.135187 18 20005 16790 -16.070982 19 21730 18250 -16.014726 20 23525 19770 -15.961743 21 25385 21345 -15.914910 22 27310 22975 -15.873306 23 29305 24665 -15.833476 24 31365 26410 -15.797864 25 33490 28210 -15.765900 26 35680 30070 -15.723094 27 37935 31985 -15.684724 28 40260 33960 -15.648286 29 42650 35985 -15.627198 30 45105 38075 -15.585855 31 45590 38430 -15.705199 32 46005 38725 -15.824367 33 46360 38970 -15.940466 34 46655 39155 -16.075447 35 46880 39280 -16.211604 36 47045 39355 -16.346052 37 47145 39370 -16.491675 38 47185 39325 -16.657836 39 47160 39225 -16.825700 40 47070 39070 -16.995963 41 46915 38860 -17.169349 42 46700 38590 -17.366167 43 46420 38265 -17.567859 44 46075 37880 -17.786218 45 45670 37440 -18.020582 46 45200 36945 -18.263274 47 44670 36395 -18.524737 48 44070 35785 -18.799637 49 43410 35115 -19.108500 50 42690 34395 -19.430780 51 47565 36305 -23.672869 52 52600 38265 -27.252852 53 57785 40275 -30.301981 54 63135 42330 -32.953196 55 68635 44430 -35.266264 56 74295 46580 -37.303991 57 80110 48780 -39.108726 58 86085 51030 -40.721380 59 92215 53320 -42.178604 60 194815 55665 -71.426738 61 214540 58055 -72.939778 62 234805 60490 -74.238198 63 255610 62980 -75.360901 64 276945 65510 -76.345484 65 298820 68095 -77.212034 66 321235 70720 -77.984964 67 344185 73400 -78.674259 68 367675 76125 -79.295574 69 391700 78895 -79.858310

      We have a bit of a shorter batch today, as retail gets some achievements looked at, while Cataclysm has class, raid and battleground improvements, as well as the reduced cooldown on character services!
       June 13 (Source)
      Achievements Fixed an issue causing some achievement-related creatures to despawn in Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope. Cataclysm Classic
      Race change, faction change, and paid server transfer cooldowns reduced to 3 days (was 30 days). Magmaw will no longer fall backwards during Impale, preventing players from doing damage. Fixed an issue where the Horde team was getting less resource points per tick with three locations captured in the Eye of the Storm, than the Alliance team would in the same situation. Improved combat logging of certain effects. Death Knight Death Coil will no longer critically heal for 300% of the normal value, instead of the intended 200%. Rogue Vendetta no longer persists on the target when the Rogue specs out of the talent.
