WoW Dragonflight Patch 10.1.5: Time Rift event guide, rewards, and more

It's up to us to save Azeroth from the collapsing timeways.

World of Warcraft Dragonflight Patch 10.1.5 finally has a release date, and as July 11 approaches, players have plenty of new content to look forward to. Beyond a new megadungeon and third spec coming to the Evoker class, players can also tackle all-new open-world events called “Time Rifts.”

Patch 10.1.5 is all about time and the Bronze Dragonflight, whose responsibility it is to preserve the timeways and protect them from any threats that may destroy the past, present, or future. One of those threats is the Infinite Dragonflight, who players will have the opportunity to fight head-on in the Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon, but extraneous threats will also play a factor in the content that you tackle in Patch 10.1.5.

Time Rifts will be the open-world event of Patch 10.1.5. WoW players have been able to get their hands on plenty of open-world activities throughout Dragonflight, as every patch has brought something new to the game to do outside of dungeons and raids. In addition to Time Rift-related quests and achievements, you’ll have a chance to reap countless rewards for your participation in the efforts to save the timeways next patch.

Here’s everything you need to know about Time Rifts in WoW Dragonflight Patch 10.1.5.

When will Time Rifts release in Dragonflight?

Patch 10.1.5 will be releasing on July 11. When that date arrives, players will be able to jump into all of the new content available in Fractures of Time, including Time Rifts.

Time Rifts occur at the top of every hour, meaning that players can rely on a fixed schedule for these events. Every 60 minutes, you’ll be able to head to the Tyrhold Reservoir at coordinates [49, 59] in Thaldraszus and prevent the collapse of the timeways. You can get a preview of each Time Rift event by heading to your map and viewing the countdown timer, which begins five minutes before a new rift opens.

When the event begins, you’ll be able to dive into a new timeline and fight back waves of minions that would see Azeroth plunged into chaos.

A repeatable event called Eon’s Fringe takes players through “episodes in Azeroth’s history,” and can be accessed in the Temporal Conflux in Thaldraszus. These episodes are being caused by instability felt by Nozdormu, who “knows his time is coming,” according to Blizzard.

Rewards for Time Rift events in Dragonflight

Time Rift events reward players with a new item called Paracausal Flakes, which can be traded in for event-related rewards, similarly to the way Essence of the Storm was used as a currency during the Primal Storm events earlier this expansion. Paracasual Flakes can be exchanged for a variety of items, including pets, mounts, tabards, cosmetic armor appearances, and catch-up gear.

Time Rift events will also reward players with achievements, titles, and toys depending on how much content they are able to clear.
