So this past weekend was the Timewalking Dungeons bonus event – Burning Crusade edition. If you did 5 of these, you got a chest with an epic item from the Normal Hellfire Citadel raid. So of course I queued up and did a few.
Man I remember doing Shattered Halls on heroic back in BC on my first character. Remember this gauntlet? Ugh. Remember using CC? Do we even *have* CC anymore? It was no cakewalk then, but it is now, even with our stats scaled down to level 70. Still, it was great fun, and I definitely give Blizz thumbs up for this idea. Even better, after the next patch we will earn currency for doing them that we can use to purchase mounts .. and probably some other things but I didn’t pay much attention beyond mounts.
I also got a couple of useful item drops. If you’re raiding anything above LFR though you probably won’t, but for those of us ‘casuals’ who only dabble at that level then this is an alternative way to earn some stuff. Not to mention they are upgraded versions of some of the most awesome designs from BC.
Speaking of gear, warrior is super awesome fun once you have decent gear. I have been running around Tanaan killing whatever crosses my path. Other than the elite rares, which of course always have plenty of other people there to help, I can take down most anything, including the elites in the Ruins of Kra’nak and the war gronns in the Iron Front.
