The Deaths of Chromie Scenario Guide

Recommended Posts

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.

Other perks provided by Sands of TimeSands of Time (note that these buffs stack)

  • Fangs of the BronzeFangs of the Bronze – Increase damage dealt and healing done by 10% while in the Deaths of Chromie Scenario

  • Wings of the BronzeWings of the Bronze – Run speed increased by 10% while in the Deaths of Chromie Scenario

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.

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).

      The Warcraft universe Cosmology chart is one of the of the most important pieces of art we have, as it showcases the basic and primal forces of everything, so it's no surprise it's gotten quite a few makeovers recently. AJT_GameArt is back once again, improving his previous rendition once again, with some better images and characters associated with the various cosmic forces, including new Shadowlands figures!
      You can check out the reddit thread below for different versions of the piece, with and without the text, but it's

      Raid buff scrolls won't be returning and Blizzard also nerfed class buffs down to 5% in Shadowlands, so the removal of the Engineering battle rez was something entirely possible to give classes with combat-resurrection capabilities more prominence in raids.
      Fortunately, it is not going anywhere. Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator was added in the recent Shadowlands Beta Build, and the item can be used by Engineers for combat resurrection. It still comes with the chance to backfire and kill the caster instead of resurrecting an ally.

      Shadowlands comes with tons of new customization options, but some of them are locked behind specific skin tones, hairstyles, and more, which is an apparent downside of the feature.
      Reddit user Nihux noticed that if you want to use Faces 16-30 on Human Females, you will be locked to a specific set of skin tones, and the games won't allow you to use those faces with other skin tones, and vice versa.

      Faces 1-15 are locked to the first set of skin tones.

      Faces 16-30 are locked to the second set of skin tones.

      Faces 31-45 are locked to the third set of skin tones.
      The restriction also applies to the new hair colors that can only be used with the new hairstyles, as pointed out by  Reddit user Katur.
      The restriction is in place for other customization options such as scars tied to specific eye color options. When you pick a different scar, your eye color will change automatically, and vice versa.

      Reddit user RlySkiz says it's due to age of the WoW engine that cannot handle texture recoloring while it is running, so every hairstyle + hair color or face has their own model/texture that loads. There isn't a blank model that gets colored based on what option you pick.

      In the latest blog post, Blizzard outlined changes to the Recruit A Friend system coming in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      Starting with the pre-expansion patch, characters created by a recruited friend will receive a 30-slot bag (Extra-Spacious Knapsack) upon completing Exile's Reach, the new player experience. Note that characters recruited before the Shadowlands pre-patch will not receive Extra-Spacious Knapsack.
      Experience Boosts that are currently active for recruited players and recruiters who party together will be removed before the launch of Shadowlands. Other rewards that come with the program remain unchanged.
      (Source)
      RECRUIT A FRIEND UPDATES
      With the upcoming release of Shadowlands and the leveling adjustments that come with it, we’re making a few changes to Recruit A Friend. Beginning with the release of the pre-expansion patch, characters who are created by a recruited friend* will receive a unique 30-slot bag—the Extra-Spacious Knapsack—upon completing their adventure in Exile’s Reach as a part of the new player experience. The additional experience boost that currently exists for recruited players and recruiters who party together will be phased out before the launch of Shadowlands. All other rewards available with the Recruit A Friend program will continue to be available for recruiters.
      *Players who are recruited prior to the release of the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch will not receive the new 30-slot bag, the Extra-Spacious Knapsack.

      We're looking at some terrifying texture/model bugs from the Shadowlands Beta, shared by Software Engineer Matt Yan on Twitter.
      The first bug makes the Worgen model look like a Trogg and second one is really difficult to describe, and I don't even want to know what happened to the poor Pandaren.
