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

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.

The Well of Eternity [Top]

  • The objective of this Chronoportal is to make your way back to the Well of Eternity entrance
  • 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.

      With 7.3 on the horizon, Blizzard did an official preview of new caster animations with videos and developer comments.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With patch 7.3 on the horizon, we thought it was time to share some updates to combat animations for several casting classes. Similar to what we did with the melee classes at the launch of Legion, these updates are all about priests, mages, Restoration and Elemental shaman, and some additional refinements to Restoration druid casting animations! We’re also continuing to work on even more enhancements for additional classes at a later point in development.
      A little over two years ago, we set our sights on revamping combat animations. The team has wanted to renovate it somehow, but what exactly does that mean? To determine the answer, our development leadership put together a small group of people to come up with a prototype of what we thought could use some cleaning up. You are currently experiencing the fruits of this work with the new melee animations. Our final goal was to create new melee moves that would make the game feel better, but not change how the game was played. During this prototype phase, we also came up with a plan for casters, but didn’t have time to put it into production until now. Let’s dig into some of the things we did.
      We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the new caster visual updates. We had lots of fun creating all these animations and effects and look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

      In Patch 7.3, Blizzard will be increasing the difficulty and rewards from dungeons across the board. The changes help keep dungeons relevant even at the end of the expansion.
      The following changes will be effective when Patch 7.3 goes live:
      Normal Difficulty
      Item level 845 (up from 825). Heroic Difficulty
      Item level 865 (up from 845). Mythic Difficulty
      Item level 885 (up from 865). Mythic Keystone
      Loot item level will be increased only after Antorus the Burning Throne raid opens. World Bosses
      Loot from old world bosses remains at 860. Loot from Broken Shore world bosses remains at 900. Loot from Argus world bosses in Greater Invasion Points is at 930.

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted gear is now ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded.You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.

      We're going back to Antorus to test some more bosses starting Thursday, and it's all Mythic all the time this week! We also get the first wing of LFR starting Friday.
      August 17-21 (source)
      On Thursday, August 17th and Friday, August 18th we will be conducting raid tests of Antorus, the Burning Throne. Once testing has concluded on Friday we will be testing the first wing of Raid Finder difficulty over the weekend.

      Light's Breach - Raid Finder
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
