Traveling through time is quite dangerous. Adventure awaits once you’ve got a little more experience.

Chromie Time
Journey back to your favorite story and tackle challenges from the past that scale for characters level 10-50! Pick a timeline and get to adventuring!

Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms
Deathwing’s emergence from Deepholm altered Azeroth’s landscape forever, and weakened the veil between this world and the elemental planes. Deathwing won’t know what hit him!
Chromie says: Who would have thought someone named Deathwing would bring about so much destruction?

The Dark Portal has once again opened, and the demons of the Burning Legion are advancing on Azeroth! Make sure their plans have a rather… Azerothian-sized setback!
Chromie says: You look quite prepared!

The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil and his ascension to the frozen throne as the Lich King is a moment in history that has permanently left a lingering scar across all of Azeroth. Stopping the Lich King would really put the Scourge’s plan on ice.
Chromie says: Do not exercise restraint when showing your great power to the Scourge!

An ancient and mysterious land shrouded in fog for over ten thousand years appeared due to the events of the Cataclysm, and its people could really use the help of an adventurer like you. Going back to Pandaria is a great way to see that life is worth savoring!
Chromie says: Whatever you do, do not get between a Pandaren and their brew. It’ll be unbearably painful if you do!

The orcish clans had a very unfortunate fate in our timeline, but the meddling of Garrosh Hellscream brought forth a force that threatened the very existence of all life on Azeroth–the Iron Horde. Travel back through time and meet the orcish clans and the draenei for the first time… again!
Chromie says: If a scary orc offers you something to drink, you probably want to say no.

Broken Isles
The Burning Legion sought to conquer Azeroth and enslave its world soul, and now that the Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, they advance on our world. History will remember that you stood between the Legion and annihilation!
Chromie says: If you find a powerful weapon, just make sure it isn’t corrupted by the Burning Legion or Old Gods, okay?

Characters Level 50
Hi, [name]!
Your current timeline needs you more than anything I can show you.

Shadowlands Alpha – 10-50 Leveling Speed Record
DesMephisto has managed to level a character from 10 to 50 in less than 4 hours, breaking his previous record of 5 hours and 37 minutes. Even though this is an amazing accomplishment, please note that Blizzard has said that the current leveling speed hasn’t been tuned on Alpha.

  • Seven hours to level is probably too fast, but powerlevelers who are trying to do it as fast as possible are an outlier. Leveling speed hasn’t been tuned on Alpha.
  • The team is still figuring out how Shadowlands flying will work for new players that are leveling through Battle for Azeroth.
  • The team is still listening to feedback on how to handle flying moving forward.
