Windwalker Timewalking Guide

General Timewalking Information

We’ll be using a lot of gear from past expansions, mostly due to them having sockets which are not scaled down as bad as the rest of your gear or because they have unique effects that significantly increase your dps.

Timewalking is a very buggy mess, sometimes equipment feels like it isn’t scaled down properly(ending up being very strong) and sometimes it works just fine. 

Due to the Level-Squish from Shadowlands the Item Level of gear from different expansions are closer than ever before.

  • The Burning Crusade Item Level Cap: 35
  • Wrath of the Lich King Item Level Cap: 37
  • Cataclysm Item Level Cap: 40
  • Mists of Pandaria Item Level Cap: 40
  • Warlords of Draenor Item Level Cap: 45

As you can see, they are very close. I still wouldn’t recommend using pieces of Burning Cursade Gear for Warlords of Draenor Timewalking, but you’ll aim for the highest Item Level + Sockets/Effect possible anyway.

You should try out different combinations and see which one you like best, as with anything Timewalking, things can be buggy and scale differently.
The Crucible of Flame has been strong since Shadowlands Prepatch.

 

Enchants

Further improving your gear, might get expensive depending on the prices from your Server.

 

Keep in mind, depending on what gear you chose/have, some of these enchants might not work due to Item Level restriction or Blizzard being Blizzard, simply look for some other enchant on that slot, usually there are multiple options.
