Dunegorger Kraulok

Revered by all trolls but the Zandalari especially, the bones of the giant reptiles of Zandalar are dot the landscape. But as dark energies stir beneath the sands, sometimes that which was meant to remain dead, does not. Kraulok walks the sands once again, blinded by rage and the endless agony of his dying moments. Woe to those who find themselves in the beast's path.

World Events

Wrath Timewalking (December 4th - December 11th)

Timewalking dungeons drop ilvl 335 items, so they're a great source of gear for 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. You can also create a group and queue up for Ulduar. I believe Mimiron's Head Mimiron's Head has a chance to drop off Yogg even in the Timewalking version of the raid, but you must defeat the boss without the aid of the keepers.

Yogg-Saron Awaits!

Ulduar Timewalking is now available and Yogg-Saron – the lucid dream, the monster in your nightmares, and the fiend of a thousand faces – awaits.

When: The Ulduar raid is available throughout the Wrath Timewalking event.
Difficulty: The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder.
Minimum Level: Players level 80 and above are Eligible to participate.

During Wrath Timewalking, you can assemble a raid group of between 1 and 30 players, travel to Dalaran in Northrend, and speak with Vormu to access a Timewalking version of the Ulduar raid. The raid scales for your group size and your level and gear will be scaled to match the raid’s challenges.

Don’t have a regular group? The Group Finder (I) can help.  Create your own group in the ‘Premade Groups’ section or search for like-minded adventurers.

Looking to withstand the fires of Igniss the Furnace Master? Withstand the terrific tantrum of XT-002 Deconstructor? Or is it your very mind you want to test against the master of nightmares, Yogg-Saron? Opportunity awaits! Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need to earn the Raiding for Leashes IV achievement, and more.

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:

  • Ahn'karet: The Old Kingdom
  • Gundrak
  • Halls of Lightning
  • The Nexus
  • Utgarde Pinnacle
  • Pit of Saron

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 Utgarde Pinnacle, Skadi the Ruthless could drop the Blue Proto-Drake mount for you.

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift- “J”).
  • 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.

Darkmoon Faire (December 2nd - December 8th)

The Darkmoon Faire is open for business. Meet Silas Darkmoon and his troupe, play games that test mind and nerve, and behold exotic sights from the four corners of Azeroth... and beyond! Check out our Darkmoon Faire guide for details!

Ulduar was amazing but I weep for the pug that charges into the first phase of the raid without a single gunner for the blue-totally-not-Azerite-but-it-sorta-is ammo or anyone collecting it >.>

I don't think I've done more than one TWing instance since they removed the bonus roll coin from it this expansion, the incentive is just gone.

I really wish they would still give an extra roll token for completing the weekly like they did in Legion.  Even if I didn't need the gear, that would be incentive enough to make the effort.
