How to increase your character power (Min/Max) in Legion Timewalking Mage Tower

There are some factors that we still can control eventhough Blizzard has removed all the borrowed powers in Legion Mage Tower Timewalking. Since we get scaled to ilvl 50 and level 50 there are some tweeks here and there that can be made to increase your character power:

  • Primary & Secondary Stats
  • Choose gear with sockets. 
  • Add socket on gear
  • Choose "BIS" trinkets
  • Professions from Legion, BFA and Shadowlands

Primary & Secondary Stats

Use best gear stats either from older exp or buy Korthian gear since u can buy it slot specific in 9.1.5. If you got currency for Legion or BFA, then buy Relinquished gear (Legion) or Benthic gear (BFA).

Gear with sockets / add sockets

Choose gear that you have sockets on as well. This is when Korthia comes in handy again since you can choose slot specific gear to buy. Buy until you are satisfied with the stats, then add sockets on them as well through the Korthia Archivist vendor that sells it if you have the reputation for it and the cataloged research currency for it. 

"BIS" trinkets

Alot of the character power will also come from your two trinkets. Maximizing the power on them as much as possible will help you extermely. 

Use as BIS trinket as possible. Shadowlands trinkets is not a must, since u get scaled to ilvl 50. Check older Legion & BFA for bad ass trinkets. Since you can solo a lot of older content, it will be easier to get those trinkets than hoping for luck on Shadowlands trinkets. 

Professions from Legion, BFA and Shadowlands

If you want to min max it even further, then get gear based on enchants. 
There are different types of enchants in Legion, BFA and shadowlands that goes into certain gear slots. Get the gear slot from an expansion that can enchant that gear slot. 

For example, in Legion you could enchant necklace and that you cannot do in Shadowlands. Since it get scaled to ilvl 50 (legion gear), you can use the legion necklace and enhant it. Just check what ilvl the enchants can go into. 

In BFA and Shadowlands, we can enchant weapons and the question is, which one is the best to use for legion timewalking mage tower?

Then we have Alchemy. Legion, BFA and Shadowlands have different types of power on them. It might be a good thing to check them out and compare them. 

Then we have Insciption. In BFA we could make scrolls that buffed us. These cannot be used above level 50. Since we are scaled down, this should work. The scrolls are:

  • War-Scroll of Battle Shout
    Increase attack power by 3% for 30 min. 
  • War-Scroll of Fortitude
    Increase targets Stamina by 3% for 30 min.
  • War-Scroll of Intellect
    Increase targets Intellect by 3% for 30 min

Next one up is jewelcrafters. They can craft legion necklaces that has a class specific power on it. They also got stamina as primary stat and you can put a socket on it. Not all these class specific necklaces are good, but some classes are lucky. We dont know yet if these can be used yet. The class specific neckalces are:

  • Ancient Maelstrom Amulet
    Regenerates health every 1 sec, while swimming or standing in water and not in combat. 
  • Blessed Dawnlight Medallion
    Heal yourself and gain insanity. 5 min CD.
  • Grim Furystone Gorget
    Death Knight
    Increase run speed by 20% when below 50% health. 
  • Intrepid Necklace of Prophecy
    Your pet enrages when fighting creatures of same family, increasing dmg by 60& for 10 sec. Only occurs every 2.5 min. 
  • Raging Furystone Gorget
    Charge and Intercept generates 25% more Rage. 
  • Righteous Dawnlight Medallion
    Chance on being hit to blind your enemy, reducing their damage dealt to you by 15% for 5 sec. Occurs once every 120 sec. 
  • Sorcerous Shadowruby Pendant
    Cast a random damaging spell at your target. 5 min CD. 
  • Subtle Shadowruby Pendant
    When you land a killing blow on an enemy that gives experience or honor, the remaining cd of Sprint is reduced by 10 sec. 
  • Sylvan Maelstrom Amulet
    Increase versatility when outdoors. 
  • Tranquil Necklace of Prophecy
    Roll, Chi Torpedo, or jumping heals you. Occurs every 20 sec. 
  • Twisted Pandemonite Choker
    Heals you when your summoned demon dies. Occurs every 3 min. 
  • Vindicitive Pandemonite Choker
    Demon Hunter
    Reflect Chaos dmg back to attackers for 20 sec. 5 min CD.

These are ilvl 53 which goes hand in hand with the BFA jewlcrafting gems. You can craft BFA gems that doesnt only have stats on it. For example, Straddling Sage Agate is a gem that gives 5% movement speed. Getting some of those can be handy in some of these fights. 

What are the rewards

Soaring Spelltome mount

Completing all seven challenges will earn you the "A Tour of Towers" achievement, as well as the wondrous Soaring Spelltome mount.


Legion-themed Class Transmogs

The Timewalking Mage Tower Challenges may be the same as those that players experienced in Legion, but the rewards will be different. When the Mage Tower closed at the end of Legion, it was firmly established that those rewards would become unavailable. Many players pushed themselves to collect all the appearances they could before the tower closed. Reintroducing those same appearances now would diminish those players’ accomplishment.

Instead, defeating a mage tower challenge with a class, you will earn a Legion-themed transmogrification.


Guardian Druids can earn an additional reward: the Druid Fel Werebear Form, inspired by the original Mage Tower reward.
