BACK TO WORK: Ulduar is back in the new WOTLK Timewalking this week

This week, players have the option to timewalk back to Wrath of the Lich King content - including queueing Wrath of the Lich King dungeons for Timewalking Badges, and forming groups for Ulduar.

This works for players level 30 and above, and content will scale much like the new dungeon system in WoW Shadowlands which allows players to engage in the same content scaled for the level difference.


WoW Shadowlands gear may best be gained in Castle Nathria and Mythic Keystone Dungeons, but Timewalking rewards are also scaled to be significant as well.

WoW Shadowlands Weekly Reset

The Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking in WoW Shadowlands was introduced in this week's Weekly Reset.

The Reset gave us a new Shadowlands World Boss in Bastion, cleared caps like Conquest, raid lockouts, and Mythic Keystones, and also gave us another chance at Great Vault loot depending on the content you completed last week.
