World Events

Burning Crusade Timewalking (November 13th - November 20th)

Timewalking dungeons drop ilvl 335 items, so they're a great for gearing up your alts. On top of that, Reins of the Infinite Timereaver Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as personal loot. The Timewalking vendor Cupri can be found in Shattrath City. Players can also queue up for Black Temple Timewalking for gear, Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin' From the Sunwell Raiding with Leashes III: Drinkin' From the Sunwell  pets, and Demon Hunters can acquire moggable Warglaives of Azzinoth.

ILLIDAN AWAITS

Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!

The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal-level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.

Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?

DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING

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:

  • The Arcatraz
  • The Black Morass
  • Magister’s Terrace
  • Mana-Tombs
  • Shattered Halls
  • The Slave Pens

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, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
    • Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Uldir.

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.

Beware, they’ll also gain the debuffs along with the orb so choose wisely. We’re turning things up (to 11) by changing resurrection time to a quick 5 seconds.

      Most mounts won't work in the Maw, but you can earn Corridor Creeper from Torghast that works in the new endgame zone of Shadowlands.
      Your regular mounts won't work in the Maw. Instead, the following message will pop up on the screen:
      "Your mount ignores your call within The Maw."
      Druids in their Travel Form can run at 100% ground speed in the Maw and can even bring a friend along, but other classes won't be able to use mounts in the new zones without acquiring Corridor Creeper.
      Corridor Creeper is a reward from clearing Twisting Corridors: Layer 8 in Torghast's Challenge Mode, and the mount allows you to mount up in the Maw.
      The loyal hounds of the Jailer creep along the corridors in search of the scent of souls.

      The Harvest Festival in WoW starts today, but there are no permanent rewards that come from the event, and it is not required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been meta-achievement either.
      (Source)
      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 29-October 6
      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.

      Update: an official Blizzard post has explained that Conduit item levels will in fact be going above item level 210, as well as many other details about the system, which you can check out here.

      Soulbind Conduits in Shadowlands will be hard-capped at Item Level 210 or Rank 5 in the first raid tier of Shadowlands.
      Soulbind Conduits have 15 ranks of power, and in the latest Shadowlands Beta build, we learned how to upgrade them through a consumable sold by Ve'nari in the Maw.

      Today, we found out that in the first raid tier of the expansion (and also Mythic Season 1), Soulbind Conduits will be hard-capped at Rank 5, 210 being the highest obtainable.
      If you run the following macro in the game and manually replace conduitID and conduitRank, you will see Conduit tooltips with various ranks in the chat. Thanks to AcidWeb from the Shaman Discord for providing the macro.
      /run print(C_Soulbinds.GetConduitHyperlink(conduitID, conduitRank)) In the following example, we used the Iron Maiden Conduit and figured out that Soulbind Conduits will be capped at Rank 5 or Item Level 210 in the first raid tier of the expansion. The difference between Rank 5 and Rank 6 is 90 item levels.
      Conduit Rank 1: Item Level 155 Conduit Rank 2:  Item Level 165 Conduit Rank 3: Item Level 180 Conduit Rank 4: Item Level 195 Conduit Rank 5: Item Level 210 Conduit Rank 6: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 7: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 8: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 9: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 10: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 11: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 12: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 13: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 14: Item Level 300 Conduit Rank 15: Item level 300 Below are Ranks 1 through 6 and the final rank of the Conduit.

      Item Levels of Rewards in Shadowlands
      For comparison, here are the item levels of rewards that you get from various sources in the new expansion.
      Crafted Gear
      Item Level: 151-168 (upgradable with Crafter's Mark II) Shadowlands Dungeon Loot
      Rewards from dungeons start at Item Level 158 on Normal difficulty in Mythic Season 1. The Item Level will increase throughout the expansion.
      Normal Difficulty: Item Level 158 Heroic Difficulty: Item Level 170 Mythic Difficulty: Item Level 183 Timewalking: Item Level 158 Shadowlands PvP Loot
      Honor gear: Item Level 158-190 (upgradable) Conquest gear: Item Level 190-222 (upgradable) Shadowlands Raids/World Boss Loot
      The last two Castle Nathria bosses (Stonelegion Guardians and Sire Denathrius drop better loot from the rest of the raid).
      Raid Finder Difficulty: Item Level 187-194 Normal Difficulty: Item Level 200-207 Heroic Difficulty: Item Level 213-220 Mythic Difficulty: Item Level: 226-233 Timewalking: Item Level 200 Shadowlands World Bosses: Item Level 207

      There's a beta wipe coming this week, most likely late on Wednesday, mostly to address issues players are having with quest flow. There will also be 2 new options after the wipe for character copy, with level 50 and 60 options available.

      Whether this indicates anything about much awaited pre-patch arrival date is hard to say, but it seems pretty definitive that we won't be seeing it pop up tomorrow. In fact, with still no news from Blizzard, even next week, the long-presumed October 6th/7th release date, is starting to not look so hot.
      Shadowlands Beta Wipe (source)
      Later this week when we take the Shadowlands Beta offline for its weekly update, all test characters will be removed from the Shadowlands Beta realms. Over recent weeks, many of the bug reports we’ve received are related to player-characters getting into a broken state due to changes in questlines or Covenant flow. These are not bugs that could occur in a live environment, and they often mask other issues that we still need to identify and fix. When the Shadowlands Beta resumes public availability, testers will want to copy or create new characters in order to resume testing.
      Thereafter, on test realms you’ll find that Renown with all Covenants will be set back to its initial, Week 1 state. Please note that there will be two options for template test characters: On the Maw and Oribos realms, you’ll find character copy and Level 50 templates for testing the initial experience. On the Torghast realm, there will be Level 60 character templates and vendors that support PvP, dungeon, and raid testing. This will skip the Shadowlands level-up content and put the test character right before their Covenant choice.
      As in previous weeks, we’re targeting late Wednesday morning (PDT) for the time when we’ll take the Beta realms offline and do maintenance, remove all characters, and update the build.
      Thank you to all Beta testers for your continued testing and feedback!

      We have some official clarification from Blizzard on how exactly aspects of Conduits work, from item levels, drop locations, loot type and a lot more! It seems the item levels will go above 210, as an example of a Mythic raid drop is mentioned to be 213, unlike what we previously assumed. The good news is there will be multiple sources for Conduits, from vendors and drops, and they're always Personal loot and class-specific, and drop in addition to other loot from a source.

      The other bigger piece of news is that Stygia is going to be more rare, as the repeatable reward from Torghast is being removed.
      Conduits (source)
      We’ve recently seen a number of questions about how Conduits work in Shadowlands. Here’s a brief explainer:
      Conduits are items, and they have item levels like other loot you’ll see in Shadowlands. Currently in the Beta, Heroic dungeon loot is item level 171 and Normal difficulty Castle Nathria is dropping iLvl 200 gear. Like other loot, the higher the Conduit’s item level, the more powerful its effect.
      Conduits can come from many sources, including dungeon bosses, raid bosses, the PvP vendor, and World Quests and content (via Callings). Conduits go into a collection, making it unnecessary to repeatedly earn individual Conduits at a given item level.
      Conduits drop as personal loot and are class-based, so they don’t differ based on your active spec or your loot spec. They’re also additive with other loot drops – a Conduit won’t replace an item that a boss might otherwise have dropped. Conduits are not tradeable.
      Our goal is to offer one or more ways of targeting the specific Conduits that you might want (such as PvP vendors and loot drops), in addition to those available via Callings and a catch-all Conduit sold by Ve’nari in the Maw.
      Specific to Ve’nari, we’re in the process of removing Stygia as a repeatable reward from Twisting Corridors. Our goal here is for the Eye of the Jailer in the Maw to be a limiting factor on Stygia gains. As with other items, you can experience big upgrades when replacing Conduits. If you have an iLvl 171 version of a Conduit, and you obtain an iLvl 213 version of that Conduit from a Mythic Keystone dungeon, you’ll take it to the Forge of Bonds and enjoy your nice upgrade.
