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.

Anyone know if Timewalking or Islands are faster 110 to 120?

I would say it depends on how fast you can get into TWs. If you can spam them, meaning instant queues and reasonable completion time, TW should be way faster - assuming they didn't change anything about xp when comparing the current cata TW to the WotLK TW we had some weeks ago. Then it depends on the actual dungeon you get of course. So End Time should be pretty faceroll if people don't *filtered* up but Grim Batol usually takes some more time... Queue times shouldn't be that bad even for solo DPS players as literally everyone will be doing TW this week. As Tank or Heal just laugh 🙂

For reference: one WotLK instance netted me about half a level. I fooled around with my DH so I could queue up as tank and WotLK Dungeons are easy enough to clear them in 15-20 minutes max (not the Pit though...). In the end I got from 110.0 to about 113.5 by clearing six dungeons. Took me no more than two hours. That is without upgraded heirlooms, Draught and Gem since I only wanted to see, how much xp you get in TW instances. So loomed to the teeth, it should be even better. All in all should take you about 20 Dungeons to hit max lvl.

Plus, if you get matched with geared 120 people who do it for the weekly quest you might even get some gear to get a nice ilvl boost as soon as you hit 120. 120 TW gear got boosted to base 365 ilvl (?) afaik and can warforge.

Another one I learned only recently for any toon still 110: Do legion invasions. They still work for 110 Chars and still give about a whole level for 20something minutes invested. Even Warmode bonuses apply.

      This week's bonus event is Burning Crusade Timewalking! Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest to receive a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City.
      Timewalking dungeons drop item level 425 loot. You can get item level 445 loot from Black Temple Timewalking. You can obtain Arsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth on your Demon Hunter if you earned the Warglaives of Azzinoth prior. Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a small chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as Personal Loot. Blizzard (Source)
      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 Ny'alotha, the Waking City. 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.

      We have another short batch, featuring the N'Zoth and Jaina mounts finally dropping in pairs with resets after some issues last week, as well as Rajani and Uldum Accord paragon caches being turn-inable once more, and a quest fix and Classic getting a tweak that improves performance of a mod.
      February 18 (source)
      Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue that prevented Lady Jaina Proudmoore and N’Zoth the Corruptor from dropping mounts when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Developers’ note: Last week we made a change to increase the mount rewards from defeating these bosses from 1 to 2. However, the hotfix caused an issue that prevented any mounts from dropping, so we’ve reverted it back to the previous iteration as a temporary fix (1 mount rewarded). These bosses will drop 2 mounts with restarts in each region. Quests
      Eligible players can again turn in “Supplies from the Rajani ” or “Supplies from the Uldum Accord ” for Paragon Cache rewards. WoW Classic
      Fixed a performance issue resulting from communications initiated by the Real Mob Health add-on. Please uninstall the current version of this add-on.
      Previous Hotfixes

      To prevent players from quickly killing world bosses, Blizzard recently added spawn protection for Nalak and Rukhmar, meaning the bosses will be immune to damage for a few seconds after they are attacked so that more players can tag them.
      Similar to Sha of Anger (Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent) and Galleon (Son of Galleon's Saddle), spawn protection has been enabled for Nalak and Rukhmar.
      Nalak can be found in Isle of Thunder (Pandaria) and has a chance to drop Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent.
      "This is a descendant of the irascible Nalak. Lightning erupts from its scales and arcs over the saddle. Dare you sit?"

      Rukhmar can be found in Spires of Arak (Draenor) and has a small chance to drop Solar Spirehawk.
      "Looking into the eyes of this mystical beast is like peering into the heart of the sun. Goggles are recommended when you're riding."

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.
