Dungeons & Content in WoW Burning Crusade Timewalking
Arguably the main draw of Burning Crusade Timewalking in WoW Dragonflight is to experience the iconic Black Temple raid, where Illidan awaits. For the event, the raid is set to Normal, so you can't go through Raid Finder.
Instead, you can group up with friends/guild members (10-30 players scaling) and or head to the Group Finder for Premade Groups that want to venture into Black Temple. Remember, with Timewalking event raids, your gear, and level will be scaled back. Blizzard hypes up WoW fans for a return to Black Temple:
Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth.
Furthermore, the WoW Burning Crusade Timewalking bonus event features six heroic dungeons to enjoy. Check out an official description of all the Heroic dungeons in Burning Crusade Timewalking below:
After his defeat in Tempest Keep, Kael'thas Sunstrider publicly revealed his alliance with the ruthless Burning Legion. Intent upon summoning the demon lord Kil'jaeden, Kael'thas has returned to the Isle of Quel'Danas to make the final preparation for his master's arrival.
The original exiles on Draenor found death to be an unsettling and unfortunate consequence of life, and so the draenei hid their dead away in the subterranean grave-city of Auchindoun, a labyrinthine marvel located beneath the forest of Terokkar.
The Blood Furnace:
At the heart of Outland's barren Hellfire Peninsula stands Hellfire Citadel, a nearly impenetrable bastion that served as the Horde's base of operation throughout the First and Second Wars.
The mighty Tempest Keep was created by the enigmatic naaru: sentient beings of pure energy and the sworn enemies of the Burning Legion. In addition to serving as a base of operations for the naaru, the structure itself possesses the technology to teleport through alternate dimensions, traveling from one location to another in the blink of an eye.
The Shattered Halls:
At the heart of Outland's barren Hellfire Peninsula stands Hellfire Citadel, a nearly impenetrable bastion that served as the Horde's base of operations throughout the First and Second Wars.
Coilfang Reservoir is the name for a naga-dominated compound that lurks under Zangarmarsh's deepest waters. The reservoir, punctured throughout by massive open pipes and pistons, seems big enough to house armies - and, yet, its purpose isn't strictly military.
Just like the Black Temple raid, your level and items will be scaled down in these heroic dungeons so you can have a nice challenge during the Burning Crusade Timewalking event.
So there you have it, all the information about World of Warcraft's bonus event, Burning Crusade Timewalking, from the exact start and end dates, to how you can join, the passive bonus, rewards, and dungeons to enjoy. Hopefully, this guide has gotten you "prepared".
