World of Warcraft - What is Timewalking?2018-02-05 08:41
Timewalking is a World of Warcraft feature introduced in Warlords of Draenor. Players 71+ level get the chance to revisit old dungeons and get updated rewards. Dungeons from The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and Mists of Pandaria are available to be run in scaled mode during the Timewalking event. Archmage Timear gives max level players the quest A Burning Path Through Time that requires them to complete five Timewalking dungeons.
Players enter Timewalking dungeons using the grouping tool and prepare enough World of Warcraft Gold before start. The party composition is the same as for regular dungeons. One tank, one healer, and three damage dealers form a group. A Timewalking dungeon will have the same structure, monsters, and boss encounters but the difficulty is modified to provide a level appropriate challenge. Players' ilvl is also scaled to match the expansion from which the dungeon is part of but all of their abilities are available. Boss encounters and specific dungeon mechanics are still in place. Timewalking dungeons are considered to be moderately difficult. If the group knows the mechanics, monsters won't pose such a big threat. The gear that drops from these dungeons also has its ilvl modified.
Useful World of Warcraft items may drop for those who are not max level yet and for those who just hit max level 110. Timewarped Badges are a type of currency obtained when bosses are defeated, when doing random Timewalking dungeons, when completing certain related quests, and for answering the Call to Arms dungeon role. Specific NPCs sell mounts, pets, toys, transmogrification gear, reputation and heirlooms consumables in exchange for these badges. Most max level players run Timewalking dungeons for these rewards. In World of Warcraft: Legion, the Timewalking feature was expanded by adding raids. The first raid that is available in this mode is Black Temple. Players will get the quest that unlocks this option in Dalaran. Timewalking is a very popular feature as it makes use of old content and adds more items to the game.
