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.

      Celestalon clarified in a series of tweets how the secret The Hivemind mount works.
      The multi-person capability is a special perk for the Hivemind group (the 5 people you last completed it with) and the final ritual is what establishes the link. Each player in a said group increases the mount's speed by 10% (Joined Hivemind). If you completed the final puzzle with a random group, you will need to complete it again with a different group for the speed bonus.

      Well, that didn't take long! It seems you can't keep the WoW secret finders in the dark for too long, as they've already broken through and managed to obtain the mount! Warcraft Secrets and the secrets discord were hard at work the past few days and today finally bore fruit as they pushed through all the colored crystal monocles and found their way to the Court of Stars.

      From there it's a whole lot of petting kittens and purring, followed by phase-shifting platforms to navigate, and then the goal itself:

      While the very end of the guide hasn't been updated yet, it will be very soon so head on over to Warcraft Secrets and check out the full guide, and you might be riding this crazy thing soon as well.
      And, of course, congratulations to everyone that helped out in the endeavor, it was an amazing performance by all involved!

M+ affixes were also tuned, with a Grievous nerf and a Bursting buff. The Elixir of Tongues has also made an appearance, allowing you to understand the opposing faction, and you can buy it from Lizzi Liverzapper.
