Patch 6.2 Preview – Timewalking

by - 4 years ago

Blizzard has announced a new feature coming in Patch 6.2 which was datamined previously but never implemented.

Timewalking is a new way to experience old content. When Timewalking, characters will be scaled down to a level appropriate for the difficulty of the dungeon. While your character will be scaled down, the item level of the rewards will be scaled up to be appropriate for use at your characters current level.

Timewalking will be available in the coming weeks on the PTR on a schedule to be released later. Additional rewards will also be tested during those weekends, such as quests for bonus roll Seals of Tempered Fate.

Timewalking dungeons will be available to players once they have passed the maximum level available for each expansion (ie Burning Crusade Timewalking dungeons will be available once your character reaches level 71, and Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking dungeons will be available once your character reaches level 81.

Additional information will be released as the testing progresses, so be sure to follow BlizzPro for additional updates on this exciting new feature!

In Patch 6.2, we’re introducing seven different weekend events that will run from noon Friday through noon Monday every week. Two of those events will be Timewalking weekends, in which you’ll be able to queue up for a randomly selected old-school dungeon with a new sort of “heroic” difficulty: When you Timewalk these dungeons, you’ll find that your character’s power and gear has been scaled down to a fraction of what they normally are. For the first time in years, some dungeons you outgrew long ago will once more put your skills to the test.

A good challenge deserves a good reward, so to go along with scaling you down, we’re going through most every piece of loot in each Timewalker dungeon and scaling it up. That’s right, when you Timewalk through Utgarde Pinnacle, take down King Ymiron, and loot his Red Sword of Courage, it will scale up to an item level appropriate for use at your level.

Courage comes in several shades of red.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll test Timewalking on the PTR in the following dungeons:

Timewalking will be available to characters who are level 71 and higher for Burning Crusade content, and level 81 and up for Wrath of the Lich King dungeons. It will open up only during certain three-day-long weekend holidays. While Timewalking, your power will be adjusted down to the level of the Heroic dungeon, but you’ll retain all of your skills and talents. We will also be testing additional rewards, such as a level 100 quest that rewards one Seal of Tempered Fate per weekend, so keep an eye on the in-game calendar.

Patch 6.2 PTR testing is underway! You can get started testing with us by copying your character and downloading the PTR client. Once you’ve had a chance to try out the patch, visit our PTR Discussion forum to talk about your experiences.
