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.

      A new week with new chances for beta keys!
      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. [FORUM] Will go live 23/06 While the giveaway-specific rules are listed above, we also have a general set of rules that apply to every giveaway. You can find them listed here.
      We wish any entrants the best of luck in each giveaway they enter and hope that we'll see many of you enjoying the beta shortly after! For any questions you might have about this post or the giveaways, you can ask them in this thread and I will do my best to answer them promptly.

      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.

      Reply to this thread with the Character name of your choice and don't forget to include your Class/Race/Specialization if applicable.  Be creative and make us laugh!

We are looking forward to reading your entries!
      🍀Good luck!🍀

      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.
