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.

      More attempted fixing of issues with "jump" abilities today, Destro Locks' Immolate, ToV items for Fury and Enh hidden artifact skins, as well as some Priest PvP get fixes as well.
      July 27 (source)
      Classes
      (Hhotfix in testing) Fixed a bug with Heroic Leap, Havoc's Metamorphosis, and Infernal Strike where they would sometimes fail to cast but still trigger their cooldown if the player became Rooted at the same time as the spell was cast. Warlock Destruction Immolate’s Soul Shard generation should now function as intended and match the tooltip. Dungeons and Raids
      Trial of Valor Helya, Odyn Corrected an issue that prevented the items for the hidden Fury or Enhancement artifact appearances from dropping when Personal Loot was selected. Player versus Player
      Priest Holy (Hotfix in testing) The final healing and damage of Ray of Hope can no longer be prevented by Smoke Bomb. Previous Hotfixes
