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.

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
  • Hide of the BronzeHide of the Bronze – Reduce damage taken 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).

      It's a new week and the perfect opportunity to give out a new batch of beta keys for Battle for Azeroth! This week, we're going to be putting multiple contests into certain news posts that discuss something WoW-related. Each post will act as a separate contest that users can enter, with a total of 4 going live on the forums and an additional 1 on Twitter.
      We understand that it can be tough to keep track of which contest is where, so this post will act as a homepage for the upcoming contests. You can check back here to see exactly which contests are live, what you have to do to enter and how many keys are being given away.
      Please note that you cannot enter any contests on this post directly; you will need to follow the link to the contest and enter there.
      Here is the list of this week's contests:
      [FORUM] Giveaway 1 - [Closed] All winners for G1 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 2 - [Closed] All winners for G2 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 3 [Closed] Winners will be contacted for G3 shortly. [FORUM] Giveaway 4 - [Live] Giveaway ends when poll ends. Vote in poll for chance to win.  Winners chosen at random.

      So, we have another 25 beta keys to share with our community and we thought we'd go a little historical this time around, focusing on the raiding aspect of WoW. Since we do raid race coverage here at Icy Veins and have plenty of top raiders in our guide writing ranks, it only seems apt for us to try and find out which guild our community thinks was the best of all time.
      Personally, I'm clearly biased, as I used to play in Nihilum, who were at the very top for a while there at the start of WoW, but don't worry, all you have to do is actually vote and you'll be eligible for a key, there's no actual "correct" answer and we've also provided an option for those of you who don't know any of these guilds. And if you want to check some stats on the various guilds, just so you can get it right, you can head on over to Method's World Fist Timeline.
      So, let's see who comes out on top, and if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, just go for the last poll answer! You can also check out out main giveaway thread as there will be one more this week or you can just keep an eye out on the frontpage!

      The Legion Companion App will serve as the main World of Warcraft mobile application from July 11 and onwards to Battle for Azeroth.
      After the retirement of the Remote Auction House, it is time to bid farewell to the WoW Mobile Armory App as well. Players will have a single mobile application, since the Legion Companion App will be converted into a new WoW Companion App, which will contain new features from Battle for Azeroth as well as favourite features from the original application (probably the guild chat).
      We just hope this application maintains its light size, unlike the Hearthstone game app!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      As of July 11, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app. But this isn’t the end of the road, as we’re continuing to develop and improve our mobile offering for World of Warcraft.
      As a part of our commitment to providing WoW players with a living, connected experience on multiple fronts, we are transitioning away from the current World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app and will be converting the Legion Companion App into a new WoW Companion App in the future. As part of that, we’ll be incorporating many of your favorite World of Warcraft Armory app features along with features for Battle for Azeroth into a new shared app for a more streamlined experience. Stay tuned for more information.

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.
