This article is about the dungeon mode. For the faction, see Timewalkers.

Timewalking (colloquially referred to as Timewalker or Timewalker mode) is a dungeon difficulty added in patch 6.2.0 of Warlords of Draenor, allowing players to queue up for a randomly selected old school dungeon from 4 AM PDT Wednesday through 3 AM PDT Tuesday for American and Australian servers and from 00:00 CEST Wednesday through 23:01 CEST Monday in Europe. Timewalking difficulty scales down the character's power and gear relative to the dungeon. Loot obtained during this difficulty has the Timewarped tag, which scales up to an item level appropriate for use at the player's level.[1]

Timewalking for The Burning Crusade content is available for characters level 71 and up; Wrath of the Lich King for level 81 and up.[1]; Cataclysm for level 85 and up; Mists of Pandaria[2] for level 91 and up; and Warlords of Draenor for level 101 and up.[3]

Killing bosses in timewalker dungeons will award Timewarped Badges which can be traded for valuable items at the timewalking vendor for that expansion.

Bonus Events

There are five different Timewalking Bonus Events: One for content from The Burning Crusade, one for content from Wrath of the Lich King, one for content from Cataclysm, one for content in Mists of Pandaria, and one for content in Warlords of Draenor. When one of these events is active, completing five Timewalking dungeons as a part of a special quest will award a Seal for an extra bonus roll, which isn't counted toward the weekly cap of three Seals.



With the Black Temple a metaplot was started to be introduced in the Timewalking events:

  • An unknown entity time-traveled to the Black Temple right before the original Illidari attack on Mardum and modified the battleplans for the incoming assault to make them even better. Vormu of the bronze dragonflight came too late to stop this modification of the timeline.[4]
  • Another unknown entity (or the same) time-traveled to Ulduar in order to tamper with and artificially age the titan locks holding Yogg-Saron in place, releasing the Old God forty millennia early.[5]


Blizzard announced in May 2014 that they were working on a way for higher-level players to tackle lower-level dungeon and raid content, with abilities and gear scaled down to an appropriate level. Likely using the same technology used for Challenge Mode, the Proving Grounds, and scaled battlegrounds, Timewalker mode would allow players to experience older dungeons and raids at a challenging level.[6]

The underlying system was largely implemented with patch 5.4.0 in September 2013,[7] but was not yet accessible to players. However, some players have previously been able to access the mode through a bug in certain dungeons, allowing them to experience an incomplete version of the feature.[7][8]

The plan is to initially introduce the feature for dungeons only.[6]

Prior to release of the official "Timewalking" name, the title "Timewalker" came primarily from game data listing this title as an additional category of instance. Due to the background addition of the new feature around the same time, as well as this obviously being a very fitting title for the new mode, the term has been widely adopted by players to refer to the planned feature.


  • When an item drops in a Timewalking dungeon, its item level is based on the player's level at the time of the drop and will not update after that.[9]
  • The maximum item level for Timewarped items is 425 for level 120 characters.
  • Timewalking only scales gear down. Items from older content will not scale up to the correct item level for the Timewalking difficulty.[10]
  • Legendary items will scale as well, making them very powerful in Timewalking dungeons.[11]
  • Gear scales to the following item levels for their corresponding Timewalking event:
    • Classic - ilvl 60
    • Outland - ilvl 67
    • Northrend - ilvl 92
    • Cataclysm - ilvl 104
    • Mists of Pandaria - ilvl 116
    • Warlords of Draenor - ilvl 152
  • Killing mobs within Timewalking dungeons rewards reputation for the appropriate factions of that expansion. The amount is similar to when running normal dungeons with a faction tabard such as  [Stormwind Tabard].
  • All bosses in Timewalking dungeons and raids have a small chance to drop the  [Reins of the Infinite Timereaver], an infinite drake mount.
