The Deaths of Chromie Scenario Guide

7 posts in this topic

ILjYNij.jpg

Patch 7.2.5 adds new solo content to the game and this time we'll help Chromie prevent her own assassination. Learn more about the scenario in our detailed guide.

Table of Conents 

The Deaths of Chromie [Top]

In the new scenario, you’ll use the time-twisting powers of the Bronze Dragonflight to help Chromie prevent her own assassination. The only requirement to enter the scenario is Level 110. It isn’t gated behind items, because your level is set to 112 and item level to 1,000 (The Future!The Future!) You will have 15 minutes and additional time from Stolen TimeStolen Time to complete all 8 assaults. Upon dying, you’ll respawn at Wyrmrest Temple and if Chromie dies at any point, you fail the Scenario. The scenario can be restarted at any point by right-clicking your portrait and leaving the instance. Keep in mind you’ll have to farm the scenario several times before beating the timer to unlock all Chronoportals and gain reputation with Chromie to unlock talents.

Speak to Chromie in Wyrmrest Temple to begin the quest line leading up to the repeatable Scenario. You can find a portal to Wyrmrest inside Dalaran’s portal room.

Chromie Reputation [Top]

You gain reputation with Chromie by killing monsters inside the scenario and using reputation –increasing items. Once you reach “Timelord” friendship rank with Chromie, you get the Chromie Homie achievement and the “Timelord <Name>” title.

Chromie Talents [Top]

Chromie has seven tiers of talents that can be adjusted before you begin the scenario [Screenshot] and they are gated behind various friendship ranks and take some time to research, pretty much like Order Hall advancement.

You acquire various perks through talents that help you finish the scenario faster.

The most impactful talents are

This damage bonus is increased to up to 500% if you are a healer.

Perk Priority [Top]

For maximum efficience, always try to prioritize Sands of TimeSands of Time rewards as follows:

  1. Time-Lost Keepsake BoxTime-Lost Keepsake Box to get items that help you speed up Chronoportals. Never open them if you’re progressing a Chronoportal, wait before you finish the one you’re working on and use it after you enter a new one.
  2. Bronze DrakeBronze Drake – Try using it only after you start a new Dragonshrine to save as much time as possible.
  3. Stolen TimeStolen Time – add 10 – 30 seconds to the timer and this effect stacks.

Time Chests [Top]

Reward Sands of TimeSands of Time and you need to find them, unless you picked the Insight (Tier 4 Talent) that makes Chromie reveal nearby treasure chests on the map. One location with plenty of chests is inside the cave at the Obsidian Dragonshrine accessible by taking the path to the right.

Progression [Top]

As stated above, the scenario needs to be finished several times, before you’re able to beat the timer to unlock all Chronoportals and increase your reputation with Chromie.

Bear TartareBear Tartare’s speed buff may be immensely helpful as it makes you sprint for a short duration after killing an enemy. You can also use flasks / elixirs.

  • Pick up one of the four available quests and head to Azure & Emerald Dragonshrines to finish the objectives.
  • You should now have Time-Lost Keepsake BoxTime-Lost Keepsake Box that contains at least one useful item to help you finish a Chronoportal. You can keep the box inside your bag and open it after you're done with Mount Hyjal as it's the fastest Chronoportal to finish.
  • Ideally you want Cenarion Circle DocumentsCenarion Circle Documents and Stratholme Gate KeyStratholme Gate Key. The Well of Eternity isn't an issue.
  • Don't forget to pick the the "Sky Ablaze With Cannonfire" (Alliance // Horde) quest from Chromie to get Sands of TimeSands of Time for Bronze DrakeBronze Drakes and turn in the dragonshrine quest once back at Wyrmrest Temple for even more Sands of TimeSands of Time.
  • In our run, I did both Azure & Emerald Dragonshrines first and didn't bother with the rest, because you'll get enough Bronze DrakeBronze Drakes as you do Chronoportals that automatically finish the remaining dragonshrines. The point is to do full runs of Mount Hyjal & Well of Eternity only, because they take the least time to finish.

Full Video Run [Top]

Dragonshrines [Top]

Completing dragonshrines unlocks Chronoportals and significantly increases future run time, because you can straightly head to the dragonshrine’s objective without completing the quests.

Dragonshrine Quests [Top]

One random quest becomes available from Alextrasza, Kalecgos, Lord Itharius and Chromie at Wyrmrest Temple and they reward Sands of TimeSands of Time.

  • Use Tyrande's MoonstoneTyrande's Moonstone if you have it to quickly reach the entrance
  • Mount up, hug the invisible wall and make your way down to the portal [Screenshot]
  • The portal can be used only out of combat, so you need to kill all NPCs you pulled before using it
  • Keen Felstalkers will randomly appear and will cause delays, kill them as soon as possible to avoid Chromie aggroing even more demons.
  • Use the portal, mount up and run all the way back to the entrance until you reach Grothelax. Defeat the demon and take the portal back to Wyrmrest

So here's a question for this as a mage should you make Chromie a Tank or a Healer. I would figure tank but by the sounds of it that sounds like something for the healer classes.

This is probably a stupid question, but since the dragons are not immortal aspects and more or less de-powered now.. what's the point of killing Chromie (aside from the fact that's she one of the more annoying NPC's in the game)?

It's worth noting you cannot fool the system by saving the Time-Lost Keepsake Box for later in a hopes to get the key for Stratholme.  I cleared Hyjal and Well of Eternity before using my box and I got the item for Hyjal.  Also items disappear once you leave the scenario.

You should know that you cannot carry more than one of the Marigolds. It will not let you buy 2 at once (I tried about 10 minutes ago).

      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

      The folks over at Warcraft Secrets are hard at work, with The Hivemind mount still eluding them. But that may not be the case for long, as some secrets have already been revealed and a whole lot of clues found. As a reminder, the mount is presumed to be multi-person, and each person on it speeds it up by 10%, so it's one of the most unique mounts to come to WoW in a long time. In any case, there's colored crystal monocles and a lot of puzzle games involved, as well as everyone's favorite shopkeeper Griftah, who starts the whole thing off with the Talisman of True Treasure Tracking which then leads you to Vashj'ir, Skyreach and the Halls of Origination to start with.
      This one's definitely going to be a tricky hunt and you can check out the full guide for all the parts discovered so far and even help out with the search over at Warcraft-secrets.com.

      And, of course, as always, you can also join the Secret Finding Discord to share your findings and get really into the secrets and mysteries of WoW.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas recently answered some Battle for Azeroth questions submitted by the Greek WoW community before the expansion came out and here's a summary of the Q&A. We learn more about the removal of Master Loot, Warforging/Titanforging and the stat squish system.
      Q&A Highlights
      The team is excited about Mythic+, but at the same time they realize the incentive to run Mythic+ content with a lower barrier of entry has somewhat affected raiding in general and they're going to continue adding new benefits that are distinctly compelling to make sure raiding is still popular. They wanted to disable gear swapping in Mythic dungeons sooner but felt like doing it in the middle of an expansion in Legion would be bad. An entire Mythic+ dungeon is viewed in a lot of ways just like a single boss encounter, meaning no gear/talent swapping even when you drop out of combat over the course of the run. They're always looking for each spec to have a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses in PvP and that's hard in a game with 36 specializations. If you're Class is highly mobile, it's going to have less survivability. On the opposite side of the spectrum, you can expect to be tankier if you have less mobility. The team mainly focuses on increasing strengths as opposed to mitigating weaknesses. The alternative of always trying to bolster weaknesses leads to a state where everyone's kind of average at everything and that's a less interesting game to play in their opinion. With work done to the stat squish system in Battle for Azeroth, future stat squishes should be fairly easy to execute. They've overhauled every single spell and creature from 2004 through 2018 to complement the new system. No stat squish is needed for at least one expansion. Stat squishes are there to prevent numbers from spiraling out of control when there's no gameplay value out of it. Paladins and Druids in the Legion environment already bring plenty of utility, so they decided not to bring back Blessing of Kings and Mark of the Wild in the end. They're going to add more abilities to Classes whenever there's a need for differentiation. Years ago, loot was much harder to come by. Over the years, the game moved away from a space where you just kill a boss or run some content week after week and never see the item you want. Drop rates are now higher across the board, so you're effectively spending less time getting the item you want. Warforging and Titanforging keep some level of interest and potential growth in those repeated clears and create the opportunity for everything to happen, giving you more incentive to continue raiding the same tier. Sco got a Warforged socketed Polearm halfway through progress that was a giant upgrade for him on his tank that made an immediate difference. In a world where loot is more common, the rare opportunities to have these amazing items retains some moments of excitement. You're much better off doing a high Mythic+ rather than clearing old content for a small chance to get an upgrade. This was a problem especially in Legion, where players went back to clear Emerald Nightmare for a chance to get Legendaries or Titanforged versions of Class sets. That wasn't healthy for the game and they decided to move away from that. The benefits of removing Master Loot have outweighed the downsides so far and there are three things: On the lower end of the organization spectrum, there are guilds that go through trials and historically in the Master Loot world, guilds had very strict control of loot and trials were not allowed to get any loot. For the time and effort spent, the trial would get literally nothing out of it if the guild decided to not make the player a part of the roster. On the high end of the spectrum, we've seen top guilds run the same raid over and over to funnel gear to specific mains. Split raiding made it difficult to balance encounters and provide a challenge for Method and other guilds while still being a fun and satisfying progression experience for the majority of Mythic guilds in weeks to follow. Method's item level during the first week of Mythic would be higher than what typical guilds would have to work with a month later. It worked well in Uldir. Bosses like Mythrax, G'huun and even Vectis were challenges for top guilds without needing massive nerfs. Finally, it lets the team itemize in a somewhat different way. When Master Loot was an option, they had to design loot tables around the possibility of Master Loot, so very niche items (useful only to a handful of people) would drop even though there would be nobody in the raid to wear them. They think the raid composition in place since Warlords (LFR/Normal/Heroic/Mythic) is the right for World of Warcraft. LFR/Normal are serving totally different audiences. LFR is not a social or progress experience. Normal difficulty is for friends and family groups. In Mists, Normal difficulty was similar to Heroic today, groups found LFR unsatisfying and Normal as it was then to be too difficult, that's why Normal exists today in its current form.

      We have some incoming class tuning next week, with some flat % buffs for Feral Druids and Frost Mages, applied to both PvE and PvP.
      Class Tuning for December 18 (source)
      With scheduled maintenance next week, starting on December 18 in American realms, we’re focusing on shoring up a couple of specs that fell a little behind with Tides of Vengeance:
      Druid
      Feral Damage of all abilities increased by 7%. Mage
      Frost Damage of all spells increased by 3%. Both of these adjustments will apply to PvP activities as well.
