In World of Warcraft Patch 6.2, we're introducing a new series of seven different weekend Bonus Events, two of which will feature Timewalking Dungeons—one in Outland dungeons for characters level 71 and higher, and another in Northrend dungeons for level 81 and higher. When you Timewalk these dungeons, your character’s power and gear will be scaled down to a fraction of what they normally are, and as you may have never ventured into some (or any) of these dangerous places, it might be a good idea to prepare yourself now.
Outland: The Shattered Halls
At the heart of Outland's barren Hellfire Peninsula stands Hellfire Citadel, a nearly impenetrable bastion that served as the Horde's base of operations throughout the First and Second Wars.
For years, this gargantuan fortress was thought to be abandoned, but it's now inhabited by marauding bands of red, furious fel orcs. The presence of this new, savage breed presents something of a mystery, though what is far more disconcerting is that the numbers of these fel orcs seem to be...growing.

Grand Warlock Nethekurse
Nethekurse, once a shaman of the Shadowmoon clan, abandoned his reverence for the elements to master the art of wielding fel magic. The demonic energies at his command have left him a husk who finds delight only in torturing young fel orcs to test the limits of their mental and physical strength.
Blood Guard Porung
During the bloody siege of Shattrath, Porung stormed an enclave of draenei paladins who had barricaded themselves within a corner of the city. He single-handedly slaughtered the defenders, but suffered a grave injury that left him incapable of following the Horde when it later stormed Azeroth. Now recovered, Porung serves Warchief Kargath Bladefist in Hellfire Citadel, hoping to make up for the glorious battles he has missed and write his name in orcish history with the blood of his enemies.
The ruthless and cunning ogre O'mrogg is considered one of the Fel Horde's deadliest members. But this feared brute has a problem. The ogre's two heads have always struggled to agree on even the simplest matters. Two years ago, O'mrogg began a twelve-step plan to develop a synergy between his warring personalities. His heads have yet to decide on which step to start with.
Warchief Kargath Bladefist
Chieftain of the Shattered Hand clan and warchief of the Fel Horde, Kargath is one of the greatest orcish heroes in recent memory. Over the years, he has severed both of his hands and replaced them with weapons of war, a bloody ritual unique to his clan. The joy he derives from inflicting pain on both others and himself is legendary among the orcs. As the Fel Horde's tyrannical ruler, he has channeled his ruthlessness and ferocity into forging an unstoppable army within the iron walls of Hellfire Citadel.

- The non-boss enemies in this dungeon mean business. Make a plan for every pull.
- Watch out for Nethekurse's Void Zones.
