For the next seven days, take a trip back to when Deathwing ruled the skies over Azeroth—it’s time to delve back into the dungeons of Cataclysm.

This Week

All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:

  • End Time
  • Grim Batol
  • The Stonecore
  • Lost City of Tol’vir
  • The Vortex Pinnacle
  • Throne of the Tides

Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, you can earn Ramkahen reputation and the right to purchase Brown and Tan Riding Camels.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Archmage Timear near Violet Hold in Dalaran has a quest for you (A Frozen Path Through Time). Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.

Every Week

The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

Un'Goro Madness (March 17 - 19)

The dinosaurs in Un'goro are getting restless. Time to go pay them a visit! You can learn more about the micro-holiday here.

Scaling is still completely broken in timewalk dungeons, so you can't get away with using old legendaries anymore :(

Not worth the time anymore IMHO.

The fact that Blizzard doesn't seem to acknowledge this makes me sad.

They should drop the number of dungeons you need to complete the quest to 3 imo.

I'm confused about what people think is broken with the Timewalking Dungeons.

Every time Timewalking is up people cry.  The Timewalking dungeons seem to be around the difficulty of a Mythic +0 Legion Dungeon.  This makes sense considering the other Dungeon weekly is for completing 5 Myhic Dungeons that can be done at Mythic +0.

Seems consistent to me.

Legendaries being less powerful in Timewalking Dungeons seems to be a stupid complaint considering how bloody easy they are anyway.

If anything, Timewalking should completely disable Legendaries like in PvP and buff the difficulty along with increasing the ilvl of the drops.

You are correct about one thing, people will always complain no matter what the issue and I am just as bad if not sometimes worse, however, the point they are trying to make is that ever since the implementation of level scaling  in 7.3.5 the timewalking dungeons are scaling off of already scaled dungeons.  This is making timewalking disproportioned from what it once was.  The Mythic dungeon weekly quest only requires 4 Mythic dungeons for Heroic difficulty loot, while timewalking which actually has become more difficult requires 5 dungeons for normal difficulty loot.

The legendaries they are speaking of would be for example, the Warglaives of Azzinoth, Thor'idal, and the other old content legendaries.

I disagree because this would completely imbalance the runs.  Legendaries tend to even out the specs a bit more, and without those affects the classes are at the mercy of their abilities, which also scale differently for each class.  Some classes don't scale down as well as others, and some scale poorly at max level.

      We have two Corruption fixes today, as the Gushing Wound nerf has finally arrived! There's also a fix for Ineffable Corruption and its effect on lockout times for interrupted spell schools.
      June 2 (source)
      Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Gushing Wound (Corruption Effect) damage over time effect has been reduced by 35%. Developer’s note: While we try to avoid changes like this outside of regular balance patch intervals, the changes we've made to the Corruption system to make Corruption more targetable and attainable risks turning a rare but powerful Corruption into the optimal choice in nearly every situation. With this reduction in damage, Gushing Wound will remain reasonably powerful in all situations, but will no longer be the most efficient source of damage per Corruption in all situations. Fixed a bug that caused the lockout time of interrupted spell schools to increase when the Ineffable Truth Corruption effect ends.

      Update: The second theory has been debunked, as it's predicted items did not show up in today's list!
      We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
      First off we have Dorovon, from Big Dumb Guild, who has actually datamined some hotfix data and come up with a possible pattern there, with cycles of linked Corruptions repeating. Now, this data might not actually be linked to the vendor at all, but we can't know that yet. From that base, Shiftmage created this spreadsheet which tracks all the upcoming Corruptions, but its first prediction comes on July 16th, as that's when the supposed "cycle" will start repeating.


      An additional problem here is that even if the data is linked to the vendor, it might simply randomize the order once it comes to the cycle reset point. We won't know whether any of this is reliable until June 16th, when the first prediction will either come true or not. You can check out the spreadsheet here for more details, and read a more detailed analysis of the datamining itself here.
      *The below theory has been proved to be incorrect*
      The second theory is much simpler and we'll find out whether it's correct a whole lot sooner - tomorrow on the next reset, in fact! Limit's Imfiredup has created a much more direct prediction, potentially figuring out the pattern for (only) the stat-based Corruptions.

      We simply keep in mind we're now on cycle 4, which would indicate the next reset, coming tomorrow, should have Expedient 1 and Versatile 2, so it won't take long to see if this is correct. Just so it's easier to keep track, cycle 5 would be (US) Tuesday's reset, aka 02.06, 6 would be Friday 05.06, 7 would be Tuesday 09.06 and cycle 8 would be Friday 12.06.
      You can check out how Imfiredup came to these number in the clip below:


      Now, obviously both of these have a lot going against them, and it's all very speculative at this point, but it'll be pretty exciting to see if either of them managed to get it right. Perhaps Blizzard will even see the interest players have in actually knowing when which Corruption will appear and share the correct schedule themselves?

      Dredwing mounts are bat-like creatures that are probably native to Revendreth given that the whole zone has a vampire vibe to it. Check out our preview of the mounts for more details.
      The mount comes in four colors: green, purple, red, and stone.
      Silvertip Dredwing

      PH Purple Dredwing

      Horrid Brood Dredwing
      Harika the Horrid terrorized the denizens of the Forest Ward yet with her demise her broodlings under proper direction can now take this horror to denizens farther afield.

      PH White Dredwing
