Timewalking Burning Crusade:
This Timewalking event: Burning Crusade is a fantastic opportunity if you need to reach Revered and Exalted reputation for Factions within Outland. There are plenty of recipes, transmog locked behind these reputation milestones, i.e., Shattered Sun Offensive, Keeper’s of Time, and The Consortium, to name a few.
With the buff: Sign of the Twisted Nether, we get a 50% increase in reputation gains from combat and quests. So if you plan on doing the dailies for the Shattered Sun Offensive, along with doing the Normal/Heroic runs of Magister’s Terrace, this is the best time to do it!
You must be level 50 or above to participate in the random Timewalking dungeon.
Check those Alts!
If you remember my post regarding the World Event: WoW’s Anniversary, and followed my advice, to log in all your alts, you will have earnt some easy Timewarped Badges on them. Now is their moment to shine!
If your character is level 30 or above, they can access the vendor Cupri.
Log all your level 30 alts, and purchase any commendations you need and mail them to the character that requires the reputation boost. If you’re unsure what commendations are, and where to buy them, check out the next part of this blog post: Reputations to Grind.
Reputations To Grind:
Here’s a reminder of some of the factions to grind during this Timewalking Event.
- Shattered Sun Offensive
- The Scale of the Sands
- The Violet Eye
- Sha’tari Skyguard
- The Aldor
- The Scryers
Alternatively, check out the Timewalking vendor, Cupri. She sells an assortment of items for your hard-earned Timewarped Badges, including commendations. Here’s a list of commendations that will be of interest to you.
- of the Consortium
- of The Sha’tar
- of Thrallmar [H]
- of Honor Hold [A]
- of the Cenarion Expedition
- of the Keepers of Time
- of Lower City
For a very well-detailed guide on farming reputations with Outland factions during the Timewalking: Burning Crusade event, check out Wowhead’s guide.
You may wish to either purchase these from the Auction House or check out Wowhead, for the best places to farm them. Remember, handing in these tokens, while under the buff: Sign of the Twisted Nether will reward you with a 50% extra reputation!
Unidentified Plant Parts (Hand in up to Friendly)
Arakkoa Feather (Hand in until Honored)
Mark of Kil’jaeden (Hand in until Honored)
Mark of Sargeras (Hand in until Exalted)
Fel Armament (Hand in until Exalted)
Firewing Signet (Hand in until Honored)
Sunfury Signet (Hand in until Exalted)
Arcane Tome (Hand in until Exalted)
If you’re considering obtaining the Achievement: Hero of Shattrath you will need to farm or purchase the following items in order to decrease the reputation with the faction you were exalted with first.
Dampscale Basilisk Eye (Aldor to The Scryers Neutral)
Dreadfang Venom Sac (The Scryers to Aldor Neutral)
Farming Instances & Dailies to farm Rep:
Once you hit a reputation milestone for a specific Faction, you will be restricted to earning reputation either via Faction specific dailies, or instances associated with the Faction.
Check out Wowhead’s Rep farming guide. Scroll down to The Burning Crusade!
Bag of Fishing Treasures:
Another great shout is purchasing the Bag of Fishing Treasures from Cupri. This bag will set you back 150 Timewarped Badges. It has the chance to reward you with a BoP companion pet; there are four available.
I’d only recommend doing this method if you have nothing else to purchase with your Timewarped Badges. Alternatively, shop the Auction House for these pets instead.
Ideally, you want to purchase these pets while the event is active, when the event has finished, these companion pets will become valuable once more. I regularly post these at 7.5k-10k each for a level 1 battle pet. If you have a level 25, consider adding 5k on top of its value.
Recipes of Interest:
There are far too many recipes to name, but I can assure you there’s a lot of gold to be made by acquiring some of the recipes locked behind Outland factions.
We’re not looking to flip these recipes, more so, learn them and craft the items.
Here are a few notable mentions from past experiences.
Recipe: Flask of Supreme Power (Keepers of Time)
Formula: Enchant Weapon – Greater Agility (The Violet Eye)
Jewelcrafting Recipes (Shattered Sun Offensive)
Some Sales highlighting how profitable these recipes are!
As a reminder (especially for those that are not already familiar with Timewalking and the Mage Tower) there are scaling benefits for min-maxing your gear for participating in Timewalking content. Ideally, you want to have the best gear, gem slots, and consumables, but be aware of potential Legendary, Legion Legendary effects, and Azerite Power restrictions.
Remember, the more gem slots on your gear the better!
The gems from Dragon Soul (Queen’s Garnet cuts) are best in slot. However, if you’re low on funds, always consider other gem cuts, Primordial Ruby, Inferno Ruby, Cardinal Ruby, and Crimson Spinel. The meta gems are very significant too.
Due to level restrictions/limitations with enchants you need to follow a simple rule.
If your item is;
Below ilvl 50, use an enchant below level 50.
Above ilvl 50, use a level 50 enchant.
As mentioned above, gem slots are important, so equipping a belt buckle will add a gem slot to your waist. Ideally, you want the Living Steel Belt Buckle.
