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.

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.

      We have our 100 Mythic Crucible of Storms Horde champion guilds already! The Hall of Fame for the red faction is now closed with the guilds that managed to get in being set in stone, with a few more getting the Cutting Edge: Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void achievement, as it remained available until the end of this last reset. So if you're looking for the achievement or the "Famed Slayer of the Harbinger" title, you'll have to try on the Alliance side of things, where there's 88 slots left! Once the remaining Alliance guilds down Mythic Uu'nat, cross-realm Mythic will be enabled, but at this rate it's going to be a bit tight to reach that 100 number, as the Hall of Fame will close when the next raid, Azshara's Eternal Palace, opens. Cross-realm Mythic will also be enabled at that time, even if there aren't 100 Alliance guilds done with Mythic Crucible at that point.

      In any case, check out the full Horde Hall of Fame entry here.

      We have some new info on the change to how grouped players with their XP off function in 8.2, a change which was implemented to curtail players leveling much faster with an XP off person (usually a Demon Hunter in Island Expeditions or Freehold) in the group.

      Blizzard clarified that this change is only aimed at pre-made groups, aka groups where players have been invited directly, not via the matchmaker.
      XP Boost (source)
      I don’t want my XP to be 5% because some random troll que’d up on twink char and joined our group.

      This won’t happen.
      The change only affects groups that manually invite player characters who have XP off. There is no impact on players who find themselves automatically grouped by the matchmaker while doing PvP or Group Finder dungeons.
      This change also doesn’t affect anyone who has turned off XP for their own benefit, such as plundering old raids while keeping their level low enough to use their Aggramar’s Stride boots.
      Here's the aura in question:

      With the 8.2: Rise of Azshara release date looming ever closer, it's time to take a closer look at one of the central new features of the patch, with the latest upgrade to our Heart of Azeroth. In this guide we take a look at what essences are, how to unlock them and what each of them does. Aside from taking a look at what each individual essence does, we also check out where to get them, from Island Expeditions, Nazjatar, the Mechagon dungeon, rated and world PvP, reputations, mythic+, the raid and more!

      So if there's anything you wanted to know about the essence system, we have you covered, so just head on over to our guide and delve deep!

      WarcraftSecrets have spotted an interesting new aura on 8.2 PTR which reduces Experience gains from quests and kills by 95%, while someone in your party has disabled XP.
      Placeholder for tweet 1140393688272723969 Experience Eliminated - You've taken a vow of experience elimination and are unable to gain experience. There may be someone out there that can help you remove this...
      In the next tweet they clarified this mainly affects Demon Hunter boosting in Freehold and Island Expeditions and they hurry players to boost their characters before Patch 8.2 goes live which is rumored to happen June 25th.

(60 sec cooldown) Minor Power: Sphere of Suppression - When an enemy melee attacks you, their movement speed is reduced by 30% and you gain ??? Haste for 5 sec. Note: Tooltips currently display 0 Haste and we only had numbers for the Rank 3 Minor Power on 8.2 PTR. Rank 2 (Sphere of Unrestrained Fury)
      Earn 15,000 Honor from PvP Island Expeditions, Brawls, Battlegrounds, and Epic Battlegrounds (Battlefield Brawler) to upgrade to this rank.
      Cooldown of the active ability is reduced by 15 seconds and the minor power adds Speed on top of Haste and lasts for two more seconds.

      The fourth rank of the Essence is only a cosmetic upgrade to its visual and shares stats with the previous rank.
