WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria Clarifications 11 April 2024

Quote from: Blizzard

You will create new Remix characters (Timerunners) for this event on whichever realms you choose. So that can be the realm on which you mainly play, and it can be realms where you have some alts, and it can be a realm that’s completely new to you.

When you select a Timerunner and hit ‘Enter World’, you’ll enter the Remix world and play there starting at level 10. After the event ends, your Timerunners will be converted into standard characters and you’ll have them available to you in the character selection screen alongside your other characters.

When you’re in Pandaria on a Timerunner, areas that changed during original Mists of Pandaria or later (such as the Vale of Eternal Blossoms) will look like they do in Chromie Time. So the Vale won’t have its original look, nor will it have its Visions of N’Zoth look/content.

The original legendary cloak questline will not be available. You’ll want to reach level 70 on a Timerunner and receive the legendary cloak appearances on your Cloak of Infinite Potential to enable access to Ordos for this event as well as the rest of your WoW account.

Items that were only available during the original release of Mists of Pandaria will not be available in this event. This includes the Kor’kron War Wolf, challenge mode sets, and heirlooms. On the other hand, Rare drops that are available in Dragonflight today, such as the Son of Galleon or the Astral Cloud Serpent, will drop in Remix and can be purchased by Remix characters using the Bronze currency.

This event includes all of the races and classes that are available in Dragonflight. Keep in mind that there is a one-Evoker-per-realm limit in Dragonflight that some players will want to plan around.

We aren’t planning to make changes to content that is available to Dragonflight characters today.

What will be completely different for Timerunners is Remix-specific loot. With some exceptions, every source of loot will drop everything that can be obtained in Remix, and the harder-to-kill enemies will have a higher chance to drop better loot. The exceptions will mostly be zone-based appearances. For example, Remix loot that drops in Throne of Thunder will have the look of ToT raid gear, and outdoor world loot will not.

Creating Your New Identity

Create a new modern World of Warcraft character to undertake your adventures in Pandaria, collect a variety of powerful new items and transmogs, then take your transmogs with you when you continue your adventures in World of Warcraft®:The War Within. Additional character slots will be available so that you have room for your new fully leveled and fully geared hero to join you in your continuing adventures through the Worldsoul Saga™. All Remix characters created during the event will convert to a standard character to play within modern World of Warcraft at the end of the event.

From the realm Character Selection screen, players will be given the option to create a new WoW Remix character, beginning at level 10, which will only be able to play with characters taking part in the event.

Characters in the selection screen which are only available to play in the World of Warcraft Remix event will have an icon next to the character name so they can easily be identified when choosing which mode of World of Warcraft you intend to play through.

Once you’ve created your character, you’ll begin your new journey in the Timeless Isle and meet up with the infinite dragonflight and Eternus who will set you on your path.


New Loot, New You

In WoW Remix, players have the opportunity to collect a variety of items from just about anywhere: quests, chests, creatures, bosses, and more. New customizable items will be yours for the taking and each item slot has their own unique identity with spell gem sockets. These sockets come with exciting turbo-charged new effects similar to trinkets.

Each time you loot new items, you’ll have the chance for powerful new upgrades allowing you to push the limits further and faster than ever before with uncapped progression. As you progress, you’ll gradually become more and more powerful as items also grant increased permanent stats.

Here are just some examples of the types of gems you might find:

Meta Gems
Lifestorm

Equip: Summon a storm. Call down 5 bolts of lightning every 1 second. Each bolt inflicts 25,885 Nature damage to an enemy within 30 yards.

“Fits in a Meta socket.”

Thundering Orb

Earn titles, a variety of transmogs, previously unreleased color variants of older mounts, and more simply by completing WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria specific achievements during the Remix event. These achievements will become Feats of Strength when the event ends.


Welcome to a New Bronze Age

There’s no such thing as a bad drop and any drop you get can be converted into a new currency— Bronze. You’ll be able to use this currency to purchase upgrades and World of Warcraft account-bound cosmetics.

Head to a bazaar in any zone to purchase everything from class transmogs, to Mists of Pandaria mounts, toys, and more. This allows players to purchase items that were previously unable to obtain or difficult to obtain as random drops by simply spending this new currency to add them to their account’s collection.

Players won’t be able to use the Auction House in World of Warcraft Remix: Mists of Pandaria.


Continue the story in Dragonflight as the Dark Heart content update (10.2.7) ushers in the final chapter of the expansion and sets the stage for The War Within.

Season Four Crafted Item Levels

Quote from: Blizzard

Greetings! Recently, several folks pointed out that the item level for crafted Season Four gear was lower than expected by the equivalent of one upgrade level. After investigating, we identified a bug that was causing the issue, and are correcting it for an upcoming PTR build. Players should expect that Season Four gear enhanced with an Enchanted Aspect’s Awakened Crest will max out at item level 525, equivalent to upgrade level Myth 3. (Before the correction, that gear was maxing out at 522, equivalent to Myth 2.)

As always, we appreciate player feedback on the PTR. Y’all the real MVPs.
