While Patch 9.1.5 is currently available on WoW’s Public Test Realm (PTR,) no official release date has been confirmed. As the Mage Tower accompanies that update, we’ll need to wait until it drops.

The Mage Tower is accessed through Legion Timewalking, a system that allows players to play dungeons and raids from that expansion. It’ll initially be available for two weeks, then will return to the current one-week-at-a-time rotation.
In an attempt to ensure that players who previously played through the Tower retain their item exclusivity, Blizzard have decided to add some new and improved rewards with this iteration of the Tower.
These come in the form of Legion-inspired class armor, as well as the highly sought-after Werebear skin for Guardian Druids. Additionally, completing all seven challenges on different characters across your Battle.net account will net you the Soaring Spelltome mount.
Below are the Challenges, as well as what classes can complete them. Bear in mind Challenges must be completely survived to earn rewards, and no longer require an Artifact.
|Closing the Eye||Frost Death Knight, Havoc Demon Hunter, Survival Hunter, Subtlety Rogue, and Arms Warrior.|
|An Impossible Foe||Unholy Death Knight, Feral Druid, Fire Mage, Outlaw Rogue, Elemental Shaman, and Fury Warrior.|
|The God-Queen’s Fury||Arcane Mage, Retribution Paladin, Assassination Rogue, Enhancement Shaman, and Demonology Warlock.|
|Feltotem’s Fall||Beast Mastery Hunter, Windwalker Monk, Discipline Priest, and Destruction Warlock.|
|The Highlord’s Return||Blood Death Knight, Vengeance Demon Hunter, Guardian Druid, Brewmaster Monk, Protection Paladin, and Protection Warrior.|
|End of the Risen Threat||Restoration Druid, Mistweaver Monk, Holy Paladin, Holy Priest, and Restoration Shaman.|
|Thwarting the Twins||Balance Druid, Marksmanship Hunter, Frost Mage, Shadow Priest, and Affliction Warlock.|
While other classes only receive item transmogs and the new Legion armor, Guardian Druids can finally rejoice as the iconic Werebear is back!

In response to player feedback, Blizzard have reintroduced the Werebear, but this time he’s decked out in black and neon green in a Fel-inspired design. This allows players to grind for something new, whilst also maintaining the exclusive nature of the original white skin.
