Prime your minds for an especially tangled chrono-spatial conundrum: Warlords of Draenor Timewalking is here!

Players level 101 and over will be able to adventure into six of Warlords of Draenor’s dungeons to reap new rewards all week during this week’s Bonus Event. 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 regular 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.

This Week

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 box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Battle of Dazar’alor.

Simply open the Group Finder (default hotkey: I) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown menu. Selecting Find Group will match you with other players and send you to one of the following Heroic dungeons:

Auchindoun
Auchindoun is the holy mausoleum of the draenei, a sanctum of the Light in which the spirits of the dead find respite. The crystalline structure also serves to protect and shield draenei souls from their eternal enemies: the Burning Legion, who hunger for draenei spirits. This fact makes it a location of particular interest to Gul’dan and his Shadow Council, who seek to gain favor with their demonic masters.

The Bloodmaul Slag Mines
On the northern outskirts of Frostfire Ridge, the Bloodmaul ogres run a brutal mining operation amidst the sweltering heat of active volcanic caverns. Slaves from across Draenor are transported to the mines, never to leave alive. The Slag Mines produce abundant yields of gemstones and ore, but it is rumored that the true purpose of these mines is to dig for an ancient relic of immense power.

The Everbloom
After the disruption of the Dark Portal, the Kirin Tor realized that to fight the Iron Horde on their own soil, they would need a supply line to reinforcements. Thus, they created outposts across Draenor with magical links back to Azeroth. Unfortunately, what seemed like a prime strategic location near the Blackrock Foundry was known to botani as the Everbloom, a sacred place within the Gorgrond woodlands. The outpost was quickly overgrown, but it still contains a link to the outskirts of Stormwind. . . .

Iron Docks
On the northern coast of Gorgrond, the Iron Docks represent the heart of the Iron Horde’s naval might. Huge warships and artillery forged and assembled within the Blackrock Foundry are readied for war within this massive port. The greatest beasts of Draenor are broken and trained alongside elite infantry units, comprising the ground troops that will surge ashore to break the will of any who would dare oppose the Iron Horde.

Shadowmoon Burial Grounds
The traditional burial grounds of the Shadowmoon clan are the final resting place for countless generations of ancestors. The fallen chieftan Ner’zhul, in the depths of his depravity, has sacrificed the very soul of his clan in a desperate quest for power. Now the ancestral spirits are restless, tormented and used to fuel dark rituals that will pull all of Draenor into the void if allowed to run their course.

Skyreach
Atop the crowning pinnacle of the Spires of Arak, amidst the clouds, Skyreach stands as the seat of power of the Adherents of Rukhmar. The arakkoa have gathered and harnessed the Apexis technology of their forebears, and now they are ready to unleash the focused power of the sun upon their enemies.

To learn more about each dungeon’s bosses, tips, and view the available loot, check out the Adventure Guide (Shift-J), select the Dungeons tab, then choose Warlords of Draenor from the drop-down menu.

Warlords of Draenor Timewalking Rewards

You’ll also be able to visit the Timewalking vendors Tempra in Stormshield and Kronnus in Warspear. They’ll be waiting to take your hard-earned Timewarped Badges in exchange for some tempting rewards:

  • 2 Mounts—Beastlord’s Irontusk and Beastlord’s Warwolf
  • 2 Toys—Apexis Focusing Shard and Banner of the Burning Blade
  • Reputation Tokens for all major Warlords of Draenor factions including: Arakkoa Outcasts, Steamwheedle Preservation Society, Order of the Awakened, Saberstalkers, Frostwolf Orcs/Council of Exarchs, Laughing Skull Orcs/Sha’tari Defense, Hand of the Prophet
  • Plus more! Additional Warlords of Draenor equipment will be available during this event.

About Bonus Events

Bonus Events occur on 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 reward for accomplishing a related goal. Check the in-game calendar regularly to keep on top of the scheduled events. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any quests associated with the Bonus Event of the week.

No Grimrail Depot? 😞

I think it's pretty much arbitrary which dungeons they pick for TW - UBRS is missing as well.

I you want to fish for a reason, they may not have wanted to include the mechanically "more challenging" dungeons. During Wrath Timewalking Pit of Saron is already pretty tight. It can be a real pain in the *filtered* if you run it with people that have never done it before. Imagine if they'd included the Oculus 🤣 Even that reasoning, however, does not explain, why they would exclude the Depot. That one was not too complex iirc. Second phase of second boss is maybe slightly more complex, but not enough to warrant excluding grimrail imo. The Dungeon itself was awesome and something completely new. So it's kind of sad, they don't want to show that one off again.

Now if only they brought back Challenge Modes or some other way to get those sets or weapon xmogs... I was dumb enough to not do them back in the day. I'd gladly do the whole thing on my hunter to get a shot at the howling beast set or the anti-tank-laser-gun... Mage Tower was pretty much the only thing that kept me playing during the end of legion

🙂

I'm new. (Playing for like a week)  How come it says Item Level 350 gear but when I look at the gear the item numbers are around 130? Is that just the old wiki explanation?

Wowdb tooltips. This is the base ilvl in their database and there can be multiple versions of the same item with a different ilvl.

Basically this. Timewarped Gear scales to your level, at the moment you got the item. That goes for items dropped in TW dungeons as well as the ones you buy from the vendors.

There is however another scaling going on: Your current gear, as in the stuff you wear when you enter a timewarped dungeon, will get scaled down, so it will have two different ilvls displayed, the "real" one in parentheses and the scaled down one in front of that. As soon as you leave the instance, the item will be brought back up to its "real" ilvl.

So TW-gear does indeed scale, but not like Heirlooms, meaning, TW-gear will not grow with you. So imo there's no real point in buying stuff while leveling as you will outgrow the item very quickly. It can still be a great way to replace that one trinket you have been carrying around for 50 levels though... TW-Gear or dungeons in general are however probably the best way to boost fresh 120 characters to a very reasonable ilvl of 350 give or take, saving you a lot of WQ grinding. Add the weekly quest for 5 instances and you get some raid lvl gear as a cherry on top.

Technically it might be better to get boosted through mythics by friends with an armor specific group, but without said friends willing to help that's not possible. TW you can queue up though the dungeon finder, so you could do it alone as well.

      Visions of N'Zoth is Battle for Azeroth's final major content patch, where we take the battle to N'Zoth himself and visit Ny'alotha. Our hub covers everything you need to know about Patch 8.3 and helps you stay on track if you haven't been playing the game for a while.
      Patch 8.3 Release Date
      Blizzard revealed after BlizzCon that Patch 8.3 will go live in January 2020.
      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas talked about Visions of N'Zoth in the latest Content Preview on October 7. We learned pretty much everything about the new patch, and in the following section, you're going to find its main features:
      Assaults
      Invasions return to the game once more, and this time, they're called Assaults. The Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum will be periodically under assault by N'Zoth's forces, and your goal is to drive them back by completing quests and interacting with various objectives to complete the "emissary." Blizzard uses technology and everything they've learned from Mechagon and Nazjatar in this new iteration of Assaults to ensure dynamic replayability. Assaults are mandatory if you want to enter Horrific Visions.
      Initial Preview of Assaults in Visions of N'Zoth Horrific Visions
      Described as alternate realities where N'Zoth's power is ascendant, these are 1-5 player "scenarios" of Stormwind and Orgrimmar, where you need to complete various objectives for rewards. Horrific Visions revolve around a new mechanic called Sanity, which starts draining as soon as you enter a Horrific Vision. Your goal is to complete as many side objectives as possible and defeating the mini-boss before your Sanity is completely depleted.
      To help you with that, we've got Wrathion with a new Legendary Cloak and a Titanic Research Archive for Horrific Visions with perks that gradually trivialize the feature. You will be also able to buy various items from Wrathion after completing the Black Empire intro questline.
      Wrathion Selling Various Items in Patch 8.3 Ny'alotha, the Waking City
      We will be facing N'Zoth in Ny'alotha, the new twelve-boss raid located in Uldum. It comes with a raid skip quest after you defeat the first boss and new sets up for grabs:
      Ny'alotha Cloth Sets Preview Ny'alotha Leather Sets Preview Ny'alotha Mail Sets Preview Ny'alotha Plate Sets Preview You can check out N'Zoth's real size here.
      We've also covered the continuation of the story in Patch 8.3 and what happens in the raid in the articles below:
      New Forsaken Leadership in Patch 8.3 (Spoilers) Azshara's Bargain and the Key to Defeating N'Zoth (Spoilers) I'lgynoth's Whispers in Patch 8.3 (Analysis) Tyrande Whisperwind VO (Patch 8.3) N'Zoth's in-game model has been updated multiple times and you can check out N'Zoth's VO as well if you're interested what the Old God has to say based on the latest sound files.
      Rewards Updates
      Visions of N'Zoth comes with two new factions, six new Essences, a brand new Mythic Season, a new Seasonal affix, Profession updates, and more that we'll cover soon. On top of that, Essences from Mechagon and Nazjatar will be easier to acquire for alts. You can also add your own sockets to gear which currently does not have any, and more.
      Add Sockets to Your Gear in Patch 8.3 Heart of Azeroth will have a new Minor slot, two Stamina nodes, the maximum level increased to 85 (was 70). Coming in a later PTR update, Blizzard will be adding an infinite progression slot to aid you against N'Zoth's corruption at max level.
      New Factions
      Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms will be under attack by N'Zoth's forces and both zones host new factions. You'll learn more about the Rajani in Pandaria and Uldum Accord resides in Ramkahen.
      Rajani & Uldum Accord Overview New Allied Races: Vulpera & Mechagnomes
      Another pair of Allied Races will become available in Visions of N'Zoth. Alliance players will be able to recruit Mechagnomes, and their Horde counterpart are the Vulpera of Vol'dun.
      Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Mechagnomes & Vulpera Racials Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Vulpera Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome Heritage Armor Preview Mechagnome & Vulpera Dance Animations Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet New Heritage Armor: Goblins & Worgen
      Goblins and Worgen received new models and animations in Patch 8.2.5, but no Heritage Armor, which is added in Patch 8.3.
      Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Auction House Overhaul
      The Auction House will be completely revamped. No more lag caused by the system being clogged with single stacks. Stackable items are no longer purchased or sold in stacks; copper is no longer displayed in the Auction House, but used for calculations. If you regularly forget the name of goods, you can create a shopping list, and more!
      Auction House Revamp Preview The Alternative of Titanforging
      The Corrupted Items System is the alternative to Warforging and Titanforging in Patch 8.3. Items that would Warforge/Titanforge will drop with a +Corruption stat which grants side effects at various Corruption Levels.
      Everything We Know About the Corrupted Items System So Far Cleansing Corrupted Items Class Changes
      No patch would be complete without some class changes, and you can find all class changes planned for Visions of N'Zoth here.
      Allied Race & Pandaren Death Knights
      We found encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Mograine together with Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren, and new Death Knight Swords of the Ebon Blade.It was confirmed at BlizzCon that all races will be able to roll Death Knights in Patch 8.3. The new Allied Races Death Knights will have a slightly updated starting experience similar to intros of Allied Races.
      Decrypted Bolvar & Darion Mograine Sound Files Improved Eye Glow for Night Elves and Death Knights Mythic Season 4 Season
      A brand new Season awaits in Visions of N'Zoth and players will be able to earn a title and a mount!
      New Mythic Season 4 Achievements & Rewards Quaking Affix Changes New Mounts
      As usual, with every content update, multiple mounts are coming with placeholder descriptions, sources, and whatnot.
      Alpaca Mounts - Presumably, new reputation mounts available for purchase at Exalted. Chalcedony Cloud Serpent - A new recolor of the existing serpent, possibly tied to the Assault on Vale. N'Zoth Serpent - New Stormsong Valley Rare Mount from the Adherent of the Abyss. Aqir Flying Mount Ahead of the Curve N'Zoth Mount: Uncorrupted Voidwing Mythic N'Zoth Mount (Ny'alotha Allseer), Glory of the Ny'alotha Raider (Wriggling Parasite) Island Expedition Vendors
      In Patch 8.3, you will be able to purchase Island-specific and Invasion-specific crates for Dubloons.
      New Dubloon Vendors Selling Island Expedition and Invasion Crates 3 New World Bosses
      Blizzard is adding three new world bosses to the game, which drop item level 445 loot.
      New World Bosses in Visions of N'Zoth Miscellaneous
      Other minor things planned for Patch 8.3 include:
      A new PvP event where players can serve N'Zoth, similar to Talon's Vengeance. Heroic difficulty for the Darkshore Warfront. Division of Operation: Mechagon into two wings, each with Heroic and Mythic Keystone difficulties. Darkmoon Arcade, allowing you to play your favorite mini-games at the Darkmoon Faire. Deepwind Gorge updated to be a capture point map. New Battle Pets and Pet Battle Dungeon - Blackrock Depths. New Story Quests: Rise of N'Zoth ...and more! We'll be periodically updating this hub with more details!
      Vision of N'zoth is the final major content patch of BfA, and here's our hub with everything you need to know.

      Wrathion will be selling three items in Patch 8.3 that you can purchase with the new currencies.

      Once you complete the introductory questline for Horrific Visions you can talk to Wrathion in the Chamber of Heart and buy the following items:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 1,000 Coalescing Visions. The item is required to enter Horrific Visions. Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos. The item can be used to add a socket to an item of your choice which currently does not have one. Wicked Swarmer (Aqir mount) for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Note that the cost of items is not final and may change at any time.

      We have another combo hotfix edition, with both retail and CLassic getting tweaks. The 15th anniversary continues to get fixes, with tweaks to the WotLK side of the Memories of Azeroth, as well as the achievement for finishing the raids being account wide and a few other changes.
      Meanwhile on Classic a very specific buff has been reigned in to the area it was supposed to be in, as Marshal Windsor got his frenzying range reduced.
      November 13 (source)
      WoW's 15th Anniversary
      Spellstone Delight now breaks upon taking damage. Reduced the speed at which Defile would increase in area and damage during Memories of Azeroth: Wrath of the Lich King. The achievement Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire is now account-wide. The Obsidian Worldbreaker mount will now be immediately rewarded once a player earns Memories of Fel, Frost and Fire (previously it was delivered via in-game mail). WoW Classic
      The Windsor’s Frenzy buff is again properly restricted to the small area around Marshal Windsor. Developers’ note: This correction restores the buff’s functionality to its original 1.12 behavior.

      On Friday, you can join members of the WoW team on the Broxigar realm in the 8.3 PTR for the Deepwind Gorge and Teeming Island Brawl testing.
      Deepwind Gorge will become a capture-point map in 8.3. Teeming Island Brawl are essentially 10v10 PvP Islands with all the usual rewards. Testing starts at 10:00 a.m. PST!
      Blizzard (Source)
      On Friday, November 15, starting at 10:00 a.m. PST, join us on the Broxigar realm in the Visions of N’Zoth PTR for two updated PvP experiences. We’re going to playtest:
      Deepwind Gorge Redesigned
      In Visions of N’Zoth, Deepwind Gorge has been redesigned. It’s now a capture-point map with five nodes to fight over.
      For this playtest, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then switch to the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window and queue for a quick match in the Specific Battleground Deepwind Gorge.
      After you’ve gorged on Deepwind, please return here and look for our feedback thread.
      Teeming Islands Brawl
      These are 10v10 PvP Islands that you can queue for as a Brawl. All appropriate rewards from doing Islands are available, so you can finish both the Brawl weekly and your Island weekly for Azerite in this one.
      The map selection will only be the larger islands. For this PTR test, we’re using Havensworth and Jorundall.
      To playtest this with us, log into the PTR and open Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then select the active PvP Brawl and queue up. Afterward, please come back to this forum and look for our Teeming Islands Brawl feedback thread.

      We look forward to seeing you on Broxigar the PTR at 10:00 a.m. PST on Friday, and we really appreciate all of your testing and feedback!
