Dungeons & Raid in WoW Cataclysm Timewalking

Let's kick things off with the raid for the WoW Cataclysm Timewalking event. It is Firelands, of course, as players will face off against seven bosses in the molten domain of Ragnaros.

Players level 35 and above are eligible to participate, and you can join a raid group of between 1 and 30 players. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. You can use the Group Finder (I Hotkey) to help create a group and jump into the action.

That's not all. The WoW Cataclysm Timewalking event features six heroic dungeons to enjoy. Check out an official description of all the Heroic dungeons available below:

The Stonecore:

Within the Temple of Earth, locked in the heart of Deepholm, lies the Stonecore. It was inside these caverns that the Twilight’s Hammer toiled over Deathwing, hammering elementium plates to the Dragon Aspect’s body in an attempt to hold his tormented form together. With his renewal complete, Deathwing ascended into Azeroth, shattering the World Pillar and destabilizing the region of Deepholm.

Lost City of the Tol’vir:

The Lost City of the Tol’vir is the stronghold of the Neferset, a faction of the cat-like tol’vir who swore fealty to Deathwing in exchange for a cure to the curse of flesh, which had turned their rocky hides to soft skin. With the affliction expunged, the tol’vir have rebelled against the benefactor, although they remain irrevocably twisted and hostile due to the dark pact they made.

The Vortex Pinnacle:

The Vortex Pinnacle exists within the elemental plane of Skywall. Its elegant structures, crowned with bronze and gold, sit atop platforms bridged by pure air. Yet behind its exterior beauty, the pinnacle harbors Neferset tol’vir, as well as Al’Akir the Windlord’s merciless elemental legions. As long as the barrier between Skywall and Azeroth remains open, terror will rain down on Uldum from the skies.

Throne of the Tides:

Deep within the Abyssal Maw’s fathomless expanses lies the Throne of the Tides. From here, the great elemental lord Neptulon the Tidehunter has surveyed and protected his aquatic domain for ages. He now faces his greatest challenge as a force of serpentine naga and malefic faceless ones threaten to depose him, leaving his realm and its secrets ripe for the plundering.

End Time:

One of an infinite number of potential outcomes, this timeway depicts the desolate future of Azeroth should Deathwing fail to be stopped. Nozdormu has identified a powerful anomaly that exists in this moment and bars access to the past—and hope of retrieving the Demon Soul. The powerful creature from out of time lives alone amidst the time-twisted echoes of the past.

Blackrock Caverns:

Rumors suggest that Deathwing himself carved out the subterranean labyrinth that allows the Twilight's Hammer to secretly transport elementals from the majestic Mount Hyjal to Blackrock Mountain. A vital hub of this shadow network is Blackrock Caverns, site of the cult's blistering forge and some of its most heinous experiments, including the transformation of cultists into twilight dragonkin.

There's a quest for this World of Warcraft bonus event, which you can pick up from Kazra in Valdrakken. If you don't like traveling, you can start the quest with your Adventure Guide. Open it up by pressing "Shift+J" as the default hotkey combo.

  • Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
  • Rewards: Cache of Vault Treasures containing one piece of non-tier gear from Heroic Vault of the Incarnates.

The Heroic Vault of the Incarnates loot is only available for the Cataclysm Timewalking event for the week starting 28 March 2023 with item level 402-411 loot. The next Cataclysm Timewalking event will revert back to offering 389 Cache of Vault Treasures.

While Cataclysm Timewalking is active, you will gain a 50% bonus to reputations earned from quests and creature kills for all reputations associated with the WoW Cataclysm expansion. 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. For example, when you Timewalk through The Stonecore, Slabhide could drop the Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake mount for you.
