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.

      Here's a statement by Adam who's working full-time on Deadly Boss Mods about the future of the addon.
      If you've ever been in a guild, chances are you've come across various boss mods, since they're pretty much mandatory for raiding. BigWigs and Deadly Boss Mods are the two best-known boss mods for World of Warcraft, but this post isn't about recommending either of those addons, but merely to address the future of Deadly Boss Mods by the author and help a community member out.
      All these years, Deadly Boss Mods has been maintained full-time by a single developer, Adam aka MysticalOS who has been tirelessly providing updates for the addon since its inception, without getting much in return, despite helping millions.
      Today, we simply ask you to read the appeal he posted earlier this week and if you want to support his work, please click the image below.

      Here's Adam's appeal taken from the Deadly Boss Mods website.

      Harvest Festival is now live for one week! Alliance players can honor Uther the Lightbringer by lightning a candle at his tomb, while the Horde can show their respect to Grommash by leaving a bottle of spirits in Ashenvale. The event does not count toward What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been.
      Blizzard has updated Uther's Tomb with new visuals in Battle for Azeroth. We don't know if there are any plans to use it in future content patches at the moment, but it looks great! The event will be up for one week.
      For more details check out our Harvest Festival guide.

      The yearly Harvest Festival is now underway in Azeroth. This is a solemn time when the Alliance honors Uther the Lightbringer by lighting a candle at his tomb in the Western Plaguelands, while members of the Horde show their respect to Grommash Hellscream by leaving a bottle of spirits at the base of the Hellscream Memorial in Demon Fall Canyon in Ashenvale.
      When: September 18-25
      Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar
      Commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help friends and allies. Feasts are also held outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar in honor of these fallen heroes.

      The race has settled in to a more stable pace, but it's also the tensest it's ever been, as there were only a few new kills today, but Method and probably Limit and Exorsus as well, are getting closer and closer to a kill.
      A lot of G'huun news today, as Method continued their streaming and we got to see a lot of their low % tries, including this 14% replay, which was followed by a 12.4% attempt a little later on.



      Method was so motivated that they raided an extra few hours into the night, stopping only at 3:30 CET, as their fatigue started showing and more and more mistakes were being made on pulls and they'll be back around 11 AM CET. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean Method is actually in the lead, as we simply have no information on Limit or Exorsus progress on the boss, so they might actually be getting him to even lower percentages.
      Limit will be facing a tough choice today, though, as their reset has arrived and they must decide whether to "lose" a couple of hours or more re-clearing the raid and getting some much needed extra loot (which is the standard procedure on progress for the top guilds) or risk it and extend their lockout, continuing on G'huun and banking on getting a kill as is. There are still 5 hours left until the US server reset, although it's getting pretty late over there, and it seems Limit has called it a night and will be coming back later and after the reset.
      The other big G'huunian news was a nerf mentioned in the hotfix notes a just a little while ago, but we're not exactly sure when it went live, or how big of an impact it might have on the kill attempts.
      G'huun nerf (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Uldir G’huun Bursting Boils should no longer spawn close to the boss. In other kill news, we had three more guilds down Mythrax the Unraveler and move on to 7/8 and get to try G'huun: Memento with the World 4th, EU 3rd and Pieces completing the World top 5, while Jitianhong just missed it but did get the Asia first on the boss! Wildcard Gaming almost got the 6th kill as well, but they managed to miss it by 1% as Jitianhong got it just a few minutes after that try.
      And so we're on to the possibly final day of the Uldir Mythic race, as G'huun seems to have made it at the very least to the US reset intact, with just 1 day left for him to officially be the toughest endboss of the first raid of an expansion since Nefarian 2.0 back in Cataclysm (that's presuming the Asian guilds don't get him the day after that, but it seems very unlikely)! Today will be very exciting, as Method have a bit of time with the boss, with only Exorsus potentially being a threat, as Limit (most probably) re-clear.
