Save Some Time and Skip Timewalking Event This Week

Recommended Posts

This week's Timewalking bonus event is not worth it. The weekly quest does not offer any rewards and Timewalking dungeons do not count toward Great Vault yet.

I know some time has passed since Tuesday, but for those of you who will be playing over the weekend, here's why you may consider skipping this week's Timewalking event.

A) You won't receive any rewards from the weekly quest, since Season 3 has not started yet.

B) The Great Vault next week still offers Season 2 gear and running Timewalking dungeons won't give you any progress in the Dungeons category.

C) The gear from Timewalking dungeons currently is Season 2 Adventurer gear with Item Level 389 and you will get farm better gear from Dreamsurges, Time Rifts, or Superblooms and Emerald Dream activities.

Emerald Dream Adventurer gear starts at Item Level 428, so instead of bothering with WoD Timewalking, focus on everything tied to Emerald Dream.

This has been hotfixed yesterday afternoon and posted on last night hotfixes. The quest rewards ilvl 415 gear from Aberrus, most likely not upgradable.

Yeah, I didn't pick the quest up until last night and the cache was there in the quest text as it should be.

Not everyone is running the race and trying to keep up. I have plenty of alts that are well behind in gear, making the reward viable for them. Assuming that everyone is on the same level of progression, or even cares that much, is pretty shallow thinking.

you can literally buy a full set of 421/424 gear on the AH for a very reasonable price, there is no reason to pine after 415 gear.

There's a big difference between enjoying running some content and getting gear as a result and just throwing down gold for gear. What's the point of playing at all if you just buy everything? Might as well login, buy all the gear with gold purchased from gold farmers, and call it a day. Some people prefer to actually play the game and many do so on their own schedule and not that of wannabe progression players.

it's a stretch to call TW "content" it's beyond mindless and has literally just become a mill for leveling and early season loot farming. the point of gear is to allow you to do more on a given character, raids, keys, even higher end old content for farming.

It's all content, being TW doesn't make it less so.

This defines the entirety of WoW. The "early season" aside, the game is nothing but loot farming.

Okay, and? I don't believe I said contrary to this. Another "point of gear" is to display your achievement in game, at least it once was, but now there are a myriad of ways to get gear that don't require much effort or skill at all. So what is left but the content? TW might be rehashed dungeons and raids from past expansions, but it is still fun content so why not enjoy it and if you happen to get something that is of use, if even for a moment, what is the issue?

I don't see why you're so upset by people wanting to run and enjoying running TW content. It doesn't affect you for others to do so and recommending people skip playing the game and just buy gear is just bad. Again, not everyone is looking to max gear as fast as possible just so they can stand around in Val reading /2. Some people actually like to PLAY the game they pay for.

      With the XP nerfs now live on retail, leveling up characters in MoP Remix is faster than ever. Expect to save at least 40 minutes to reach Level 70!
      The War Within pre-patch introduced significant XP nerfs, lowering the amount of XP needed to reach Level 70. Players in MoP Remix are already noticing the difference with drastically reduced leveling times.
      One player shared their /played time, hitting Level 70 in just 1 hour and 12 minutes by only doing normal/heroic dungeon farms and opening mail around Level 40.
      This player, with about 149% XP on their cloak, noted that before the pre-patch, it took 1 hour and 52 minutes to reach Level 70. The XP nerfs effectively shaved off at least 40 minutes from the leveling process.
      Before the War Within pre-patch, we saw some impressive records of players reaching Level 70 in MoP Remix in as little as 30 or 48 minutes. With these new XP nerfs, it's only a matter of time before someone hits max level in MoP Remix in as little as 20 minutes!

      Switch Flight Style works with Dracthyr's Soar in the War Within pre-patch.
      This means you can use Steady Flight on your Dracthyr Evoker, instead of Skyriding, if you prefer that.
      Switch Flight Style unlocks at Level 20 and you'll find the option in your Spellbook. Keep in mind that you must still unlock Steady Flight in Shadowlands and Dragonflight zones, and the same applies to Khaz Algar.

      Now that Warbands are available on live servers, all your characters can access dungeon portals without needing to complete a single M+ key!
      This even includes the MoP Challenge Mode portals, which are no longer obtainable, and possibly the Fated/Awakened raid portals too.
      To unlock the portals in Mythic+, you must complete a Keystone Level 10 or higher dungeon in time.

      Starting with the War Within pre-patch, Blizzard has removed the one-per-server limit on Dracthyr Evokers.
      Players have noticed that they can now have multiple Dracthyr Evokers on a single realm. Evokers now start at Level 10 and Blizzard still plans to add more class options in a future update.
