World Of Warcraft will see the return of a much-missed feature from next week. Blizzard has announced that they’re bringing back the Mage Tower. What’s more, it’ll remain as a permanent fixture in-game from now on.
The Mage Tower was first introduced back in 2016, during World Of Warcraft’s Legion expansion. It gave players the opportunity to take on unique class encounters on a solo basis. This meant that players could master their class and obtain unique, character class-specific rewards. However, it was only available when tied in with the Legion Timewalking Bonus event during the most recent Shadowlands expansion, meaning that players couldn’t always access it when they wanted to.
In an update from the World Of Warcraft developers today, it’s been confirmed that the Mage Tower will once again be accessible on the Broken Shore from March 29th, and will no longer be tied into the Legion Timewalking Bonus Event.
When we originally developed the Legion Timewalking Bonus Event, we were looking for other fun features from Legion we could add to it. Timeworn Keystones were part of that, and the Mage Tower as well. Having heard feedback and seen how it has played out, we agree that a personal skill challenge being available only for a short window of time every few months isn’t in the spirit of these types of events. As such, starting on the week of March 29, the Mage Tower will be accessible at any time, no longer tied to the Legion Timewalking Bonus Event.Blizzard Entertainment
This is great news for transmog fans as well. Each class will have one of seven challenges to overcome in the Tower, with successful challengers being rewarded with a Legion-themed transmogrification set. They will also earn the achievement “A Towering Success”. Additionally, Guardian Druids can earn the Druid Fel Werebear Form, which takes inspiration from the original Mage Tower Reward.
