As said, nothing on timing to share at the moment, but we will share more details when we have them. For now, you can continue your attempts, get those strategies down, and work towards better gear to help you complete the Mage Tower!

    That's a nice thing, really. I'm sure that'll reduce some stress for those that haven't found the right time to try for all specs they are after. I know for me that Mage Tower is always destroyed too soon.

    To often for me it is up over the Tuesday/Wednesday 'no play' period for me (restarts/shutdowns/maintenance etc).
    Not up often enough over the Saturday/Sunday 'play till my bum hurts' period

    How long would it take a 875 Feral Druid to gear up for it?

    Good for you guys?

    I dunno. I want the Affliction Lock and Guardian Druid ones but the fact they're gated behind specific legendaries sucks

    Go do argus. Get the 910 badge gear. That will help a lot. Run some LFR too. Should be able to get up to 920 or so in a week or two. And make sure your legendaries are 1000.

    I did both of those without the preferred legendaries or anything close. I mostly learned how to play the spec doing the challenge as well. Gear level was 925ish and 66 or 69 traits. Nothing special. You can do it! I believe in you!

    Very happy to hear this. All I've got left are the healing challenges and with this change I should be able to get them done.

    What should it be?

    Accounting for 75 traits and NLC like 885?

    considering i had an ilvl of 914 when they came out (mythic NH geared with old paragon trait capped) 885 is far too low to meet the dps checks even if you include the new traits etc.

    The thing is... They're not. They're doable with 920 ilvl and two terrible legendaries. All of the mage towers are. In fact, I just did the holy priest one with Kil'Jaeden's Burning Wish 930ilvl lmao

    the affliction mage tower pretty much requires a slow and the only reliable slow affliction warlocks have is from a specific legendary

    Doable maybe. But speaking from experience, the Guardian challenge is far too frustrating without at least one of the 2 recommended legendaries. The level of RNG bullshit and commitment required is far beyond what most players would be willing to put up with

    But, didn't they say it was going away in the pre-patch?
