World of Warcraft: Timewalking Feature Allows You To Conquer Old Dungeons At Increased Difficulty

A major flaw in World of Warcraft is how its dungeons become insignificant with the release of new expansion packs. The popular MMO is currently into its sixth expansion with Warlords of Draenor, and with the high level cap, players have little incentive to ‘breeze’ through the earlier dungeons that are under-leveled.

Today, Blizzard has announced a new Timewalking feature that will allow players to conquer old dungeons at an increased difficulty for high-level scaling loot. Perhaps this feature is based on how well received Blizzard’s decision was of reopening Molten Core with raised difficulty as part of its 10th Anniversary celebration earlier this year.

These special events will present themselves over the weekends and when players will be able to queue up using the game’s Dungeon Finder. These dungeons will work differently though. Players will have their equipment and power levels toned down to match the dungeon. Whatever loot you find, will be scaled up to match your original level when leaving. Hence, if you’re level 100, any item you gather from your expedition will be scaled up to that.

Currently the following dungeons are being tuned for the Timewalking feature:

  • Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom
  • The Arcatraz
  • Black Morass
  • Gundrak
  • Halls of Lightning
  • Mana Tombs
  • The Nexus
  • The Shattered Halls
  • The Slave Pens
  • Utgarde Pinnacle

You’ll need to be 71 or higher to tackle The Burning Crusade dungeons, and 81 or higher for The Wrath of the Lich King content.
