“Time travel offends our sense of cause and effect – but maybe the universe doesn’t insist on cause and effect.”
Edward M. Lerner
Patch 8.1.5 – on the PTR
Two expansions ago, I had a raiding buddy who would team up with me to do the mythic version of the dungeons for the gear upgrade tokens; Marks of Valor or some such. Because the mythic version of the dungeon might RNG drop a piece of gear that was as good as raiding gear, we would target specific dungeons.
We did this on two characters apiece. Our tank/healer combo was so over-geared that we’d put it up on the Pug board with auto-accept. We ran and ran these dungeons; a lot. There was also a challenge mode (?). I don’t remember but we did a super hard run through Skyreach every week with special mob skips and nuanced pulls with traps and stuns and baiting damage areas.
So, with Patch 8.1.5; we will see the return of those dungeons with Time Walking:
Warlords of Draenor Timewalking
Check out six memorable dungeons:
Bloodmaul Slag Mines
Shadowmoon Burial Grounds
I know that it was two expansions ago, but it almost feels too soon. We farmed those dungeons and it still feels a bit fresh if not ripe.
How about you? Does it feel far enough in the past to merit a nostalgic walk through time?
