    Been known for a while that in this patch time walking dungeons would give heroic level loot.. And before people come in whinging about this, the time to get fully kitted out this way would be stupendously long..

    I tried to get it in the news but it didn't make it. If you are in the EU and want to level Battle Pets, Today is Super Squirt Day; Squirt is up in the Garrison during the Pet Battle event allowing for the fastest possible pet leveling. This is a very rare overlap (it will only happen once more this year), so try and take advantage of it.

    this is not reflected in the game right now (it is a normal chest)

    Is the cache weekly or daily? I'm assuming it can corrupt. Can the normal mob dropped ilvl 425s corrupt?

    is it still Heroic then or.. did they make it normal again?

    I just did it, it's normal loot. Not sure if this is a bug or intended, but I feel like I just wasted 2 hours.

    Timewalking has always been Normal loot, and the Quest tells you what you are going to get before you start doing it. Not sure when the rumor started that it would be Heroic now, but there never was any evidence of that on Live servers.

    The rumor started on ptr. Everyone was reporting they upped it to heroic quality gear where the quest had been listed as heroic cache for a while now or as far as i'm aware anyways, but citation might be needed there.

    Reported Wrong

    No, this one doesn't. Whoever reported this obviously made a mistake or can't read.

    huge amount of players would have just skipped the cloak grind due to the tedium and lack of fun

    so bliz makes the cloak grind a literally unavoidable core power requirement - forcing players into a mostly binary choice of endure the tedium or quit

    these guys design with a sledgehammer, no art at all
