World of Warcraft announced that the Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking is back. It’s available beginning December 29 until January 5.

Throughout the event, the Ulduar raid is live. While the difficulty is set to Normal, like your Normal-level raid, it’s not accessible through the Raid Finder. To take part in the raid, players need to be at least level 30.

During the event, players can go through a raid solo or assemble a group of as many as 30 players. Next, they need to travel all the way to Dalaran in Northrend. From there, they have to talk to Vormu to access the Timewalking version of the Ulduar raid. It’s important to note that the raid scales with the group's size, level, and gear. That means the bigger the group, the greater the difficulty.

For those who don't have a regular group, not to worry. Just make use of the Group Finder. With this, players can create their own group in the Premade Groups section or search for like-minded adventurers.

Access the Dungeons

For the entire week, players can go to the Group Finder, select Dungeon Finder, and then choose Timewalking. This will let them access any of these Heroic dungeons:

  • Ahn'kahet: The Old Kingdom
  • Gundrak
  • Halls of Lightning
  • The Nexus
  • Utgarde Pinnacle
  • Pit of Saron

For dungeons, the characters and items will scale down to a level fit for the current challenge. However, the bosses will yield loot that matches the player’s natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when players run them on Heroic. Players earn reputations as well with a faction that is interested in the dungeon.

Players can also expect a quest in Oribos. Here are the details:

  • Players have the option to start the quest from within the Adventure Guide.
  • Quest Requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
  • Rewards
    • One loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Castle Nathria.

While Timewalking is active, players get a 50% bonus to reputations earned from quests and creature kills for all reputations associated with the corresponding expansion.

Every Week

Additionally, a Bonus Events system that offers a rotating schedule of different activities will go live. Right now, it’s scheduled every week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event gives a passive bonus to particular game activity. It comes with a once-per-event quest, which gives a reward for accomplishing a related goal.
