Common Problems

  • I can't use Chromie to pick a timewalking leveling experience
  • I have completed BFA but Chromie won't let me use "Chromie Time"

There are a few situations in which Chromie will not let you start a Timewalking Campaign. Pick the situation that applies to you for more information:

Completed Exile's Reach Questline

Characters leaving Exile's Reach are offered a tour of their faction's main city, Finding Your Way (Alliance/Horde). If your account has at least one level 50 character, you will be given a dialogue option from the quest giver to skip the city tour. You can then go speak to Chromie in Stormwind or Orgrimmar to pick a questing area.

If you do not yet have a level 50 character your character will be pushed a shortened Battle for Azeroth questline and levels in Battle for Azeroth until level 50.

If you already have a level 50 character but choose to take the city tour, your character will be pushed a shortened version of the Battle for Azeroth questline. To unlock the Chromie Time option, you must complete the introductory questline up through A Nation Divided (Alliance) or Speaker of the Horde (Horde). Once you have completed the introductory questline, you can go back to your faction's main city and talk to Chromie in Stormwind or Orgrimmar to pick a different questing area.

Did Not Complete Exile's Reach, Under Level 50

If you did not complete Exile's Reach and you did not choose a Timewalking leveling zone immediately from Chromie, the starting quest for your faction's Battle for Azeroth introduction is available to pick up. The quest is Tides of War for the Alliance or Hour of Reckoning for the Horde.

Once you have completed either of these quests, you must complete the introductory questline up through A Nation Divided (Alliance) or Speaker of the Horde (Horde) in order to have options for Timewalking from Chromie.

MY CHARACTER STARTED THE SHADOWLANDS INTRODUCTION

Once your character has set foot in Shadowlands they can no longer access this feature.

My Character is Level 50

Timewalking is intended only for leveling characters. Once you reach level 50, it is disabled for your character. If you speak to Chromie and she's telling you you're needed in Icecrown, she's just giving you a taste of what's going to happen in your future! For now, there is no new quest in Icecrown.
