    Important to know - once you have or completed entry quest to Shadowlands - you can't enter Chromie Time anymore. She have replay that you really needed at Icecrown means it is probably intentional to prevent overgeared 49-s with covenant abilities to farm levelers with no one to oppose them. And to prevent creation of private shard for chosen ones on Shadowland itself.

    So if you value your ability to go into old zones and fight real battles with old rares Like Timeless island or Tanaan jungle - do not send your 49-s into shadowland areas (you can abandon entery quest and quickly change chromie time to another one but if you enter the Maw you get booted from it immediately).

    I submitted a Ticket about this but haven't had a response yet. I would like to point out the old trope "Farming Levelers" is not only outdated but flat out wrong. XPOff has been in it's own BG's for years now and World PvP has mostly been regulated to Warmode, meaning the Player knows exactly what's coming for them when they chose to enable it.

    Second, there is no such thing as "to prevent overgeared 49's" considering in almost every slot SL gear is vastly superior. There are potentially a few exceptions, but preventing 49's from Chromie Time doesn't stop that, HoA/Azerite Gear as example. I'm hoping it's a bug, as the Game is still riddled with bugs right now.

    EDIT: I have a feeling it's because Threads of Fate is similar to Chromie Time (everything scales TO your Level). I'm pushing hard to try and finish each Zone's intro Quest where you have to get 100% progress to see if after completing those you get to turn it on/off or something similar.

    I meant Chromie Time levelers in open world there is only people leveling on separate shard no MAX level allowed (unless they party sync and thus scaled down) so if you'r 49 with Shadoewlands gear and covenant boons - you like a god among mortals there no one would'v been able to challenge you.

    Those thing is and advantage but it's 1-2k hp difference usually fight 2 people at once and you might lose fight 3 and you outmatched unless they'r bad/underleveled. With Shadowlands you can potentially farm full set of 110 gear which is almost heroic N'ylotha.

    I would be really happy if you'r right about it being unintednded but specific replay from Chromie gives me little hope - let us know how it resolved please.

    I've been saying since dawn of time that F2Ps are the cancer that ruined twinking for everyone. You are the part of the problem your self by queueing into leveler BGs , pls buy a sub and stop it for the greater good ok?

    Just finished all 4 Zones intro Quest and Threads of Fate on my Quest Log says 4/5. I checked my Covenant, no Quest. Checked Oribos, no Quest. I don't know where to start the 5th Chapter and Chromie is still being a cunt. I REALLY hope this is just another in the massive list of Bugs with SL.

    EDIT: It's also possible it's a Weekly reset kind of thing for the 5th Chapter to time Gate us.

    Actually, it was the tools that left other brackets to roll 24 in order to farm them because they had such awful restrictions...

    Twink v twink went just fine for a while until those terribad twinks realized they needed someone that couldnt beat them.

    Got a response about my 49's not being able to que for Chromie Time. I was told I had to complete the BfA breadcrumb Questline in order to unlock her (which I already did back in Pre-Patch, I literally have BfA Quests in my log). So I looked it up on Wowhead and apparently this is a problem others are having. Someone else had a GM tell them that initial BfA Quest from Saurfang was removed from the Game when SL dropped (post Pre-Patch). GM's are dumb as shit. I submitted a reply, hopefully they'll get it figured out.

    So has anyone actually locked XP at 49 after launch and tried? Cuz all my pre-patch 49 dont have a red bandana.

    They're still locked, but if you unlock them and then lock again the bandana comes back. Sorry if I missed it said.

    That is sadly not true and GM is probably misinformed. I tested it on my warrior.

    1) If I abandon starting quest for Shadowlands (That ports you to Icecrown then the Maw) I can choose any timeline on Chromie (quest automatically reappears 30 seconds later).

    2) If I'm in Chromie time and got the starting quest in my logs my only option when I speak to Chromie is to return to present time.

    3) If I start proceeding trough the quest (port to Icecrown and then the Maw) with Chromie Time active - it boots me from the Chromie time without warning, but I can heartstone abandon quest and get back access to Chromie time.

    4) Character that completed into quest trough Maw can not access Chromie time at all.

    It seems to be intentional.

    Just tested on a 49 that has NOT taken the Threads of Fate Quest but HAS completed The Maw up to Oribos and then done the Bastion intro Quests. He also cannot get into Chromie Time so it certainly has nothing to do with the Threads of Fate Campaign itself. As soon as I get another Toon up to 49 I'll test before/after/etc.

    Yeah, it kicked me out of chromie time as soon as I accepted the "see what's happened to your leaders" quest, chromie wouldnt give me the time of day after that...

    On another note, I found out where https://www.wowhead.com/item=183608/evernote-vesper?bonus=6935 came from that day I found it in bastion - there's a 3-person spawn at Sophia's Aria, just NW of Aspirant's rest. 3 people to summon, 2 waves of normal mobs and rare at the end... rare drops gold and the green NPC drops a chest for everyone. Could loot it at 49, got the offhand twice now.

    edit- in storyline mode, not sure if it's there in ToF mode.

    Just got another GM response in regards to 49's not being able to access Chromie Time after going into The Maw. This GM knows even less than the 1st one. Told me to "unlock XP and level up to see what happens", I mean srs? Then went on to say only 60's can get Renown, when we know that's false too. I swear GM's are fucking stupid.
