“The infinite dragonflight is investigating the history of Pandaria. Replay the Mists of Pandaria expansion with new seasonal abilities and rewards!”

— Calendar description

WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria (previously referred to as Pandamonium during development) is a PvE-focused seasonal event starting on 16 May 2024 at 10:00 AM PDT globally, a week after the launch of patch 10.2.7. It lasts until 19 August.

World of Warcraft Remix is a time-limited event which allows players to re-experience the entirety of the Mists of Pandaria expansion at an accelerated rate from level 10 through 70 using Dragonflight classes, talents, and abilities. All loot has been completely overhauled and has powerful new effects allowing players to shape their experience, power up, and power on.

Much like Plunderstorm, Pandaria Remix is available to all players with an active subscription or game time. No expansion purchase is required. Additionally, players on WoW Trial accounts will also be able to take part without a subscription or game time, up to level 20.

Players will make Timerunner characters on existing Dragonflight realms at character select like they would make normal characters, and while those Timerunner characters will be locked to Pandaria for the duration of the event and cannot party with non-Timerunner characters, they can join existing guilds already on the realms or create new guilds by speaking with Hanchoon Yi at Paw'don Village or Honeydew Village. After the event ends, Timerunner characters will convert into standard characters and will be on character select as normal. All races and classes in Dragonflight can take part in the event, but the one-evoker-per-realm limit applies regardless.

Features

  • Accelerated Leveling and Content allowing you to take on nearly every quest, scenario, dungeon and raid.
  • Create a new WoW Remix character starting at level 10 to adventure through the event up to level 70.
  • A mountain of loot: Get powerful items from everywhere— quests, chests, creatures, bosses.
  • Customizable items allowing you to power up as far as you can go to take on tougher content.
  • Convert unwanted items into [Bronze] which can be used to upgrade items or purchase cosmetics.
  • Keep what you collect: Take your collection of transmogs with you into The War Within.

Levels and content

Unlike the original version of Mists of Pandaria, which was designed for characters leveling from 85 to 90, or the current post-level-squish version which is for levels 10-35, the remix runs from levels 10–70.

Heroic raids

Efficient leveling

Questing is the best source of XP. Do not create alts until maxing out the cloak for extra XP gain. Bosses in dungeons, scenarios, heroic dungeons, and the final boss of heroic scenarios will drop bonus XP. The daily first-time bonus for LFR wings also awards a  [Perpetual Thread of Experience].

Lockouts

World bosses and 10-player normal/heroic mode raids have daily lockouts. Directly-queued heroic dungeons also have daily lockouts. Players can clear normal or heroic raids, but not both, each day, except for Siege of Orgrimmar, where all modes can be run each day. Only one of the four August Celestial world bosses on the Timeless Isle will drop loot per day. Normal dungeons, randomly-queued heroic dungeons, normal/heoric scenarios, and LFR have no lockout and can be farmed repeatedly. The ten-instance-per-hour limit still applies.

Non-Siege of Orgrimmar raid modes with lockouts have traditional (ID-based) lockouts, rather than loot-based lockouts.

For the duration of the event, the raids/world bosses also have daily lockouts for non-Timerunners.

Bronze

[Bronze] is the currency of the event and is widely accessible, as it drops from enemies, is awarded from completing quests or achievements, and players can scrap unwanted gear into Bronze.

Bronze caches are also awarded from Infinite Bazaar dailies and the first-time-daily random dungeon, heroic dungeon, scenario, heroic scenario, and each LFR wing per day. With a hotfix on 23 May, the daily reward increased from a Minor Cache to a Greater Cache for dungeons and scenarios for level 70 Timerunners.

After a hotfix on 24 May, Momentus also awards bronze at level 50 (3,000), 60 (7,000), and 70 (30,000) for characters who did not abuse the Gulp Frog farm.

Infinite Bazaars

Vendors at Infinite Bazaars across Pandaria will trade Bronze for consumables, mounts, and armor and weapon appearances. Bazaars also have a transmogrifier, item upgrader, and Rostrum of Transformation.

Itemization

[Unraveling Sands] to scrap unwanted items into [Bronze]

While leveling, players will frequently come across Remix-specific weapons and armor either directly as drops or from  [Cache of Infinite Treasure] quest rewards. These items can be upgraded at item upgraders using [Bronze] from ilvl 13 to 556, or will directly drop at higher item levels. Scrap unwanted (or outleveled) items using the [Unraveling Sands] for more Bronze, as they cannot be sold to vendors.

With some exceptions, every source of loot will drop everything that can be obtained in Remix, and the harder-to-kill enemies will have a higher chance to drop better loot. The exceptions will mostly be zone-based appearances. For example, Remix loot that drops in Throne of Thunder will have the look of ToT raid gear, and outdoor world loot will not.

Accessories (necklaces, rings, and trinkets) are only rewards from meta-achievements. Replacements are available for purchase from Lidamorrutu for a nominal cost, even on alts. As of a hotfix on 24 May, these achievements are account-wide, so they do not need to be re-earned on alts:

Infinite cloak and threads

Remix threads
Level Quality Count
10–29 Thread 1
30–49 Temporal 3
50–64 Perpetual 7
65–70 Infinite 12

Players acquire the artifact-level  [Cloak of Infinite Potential] five quests in, which gains permanent power increases as they adventure in Pandaria by looting various threads of time like the  [Thread of Haste]. Power earned on the strongest character is shared with newly-created alts to make leveling even faster. Timerunner characters who reach level 70 will unlock Wrathion's legendary cloak appearances, and enable access to Ordos on the Timeless Isle account-wide. Players who earn  [Infinite Power XII] by acquiring 4,200 threads will unlock four toys to display the legendary cloak wing effects.

The threads that drop are based on character levels, with stamina threads awarding double the amount listed. Threads are effectively uncapped, and can be farmed out to excessive amounts.

Alts of timerunner characters who have earned Infinite Power XII will start with:

  • +150 Agility/Intellect/Strength
  • +750 Stamina
  • +150 Versatility
  • +100% Experience Gain

This macro will display the total number of threads acquired:

/run local c,s={0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,148},0;for i=1,9 do s=s+C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo(2853+c[i]).quantity end print("Total threads:",s)

Spools

Added on 21 May, though not retroactively awarded for already-earned achievements, Blizzard added spools as a reward for completing other content to encourage players to stop grinding frogs, goats, or Dalaran. Spools will randomly reward any one stat, with double the listed amount if it's stamina:

Players receive spools from select daily tasks, though lower-level players will receive lower-quality spools:

Remix achievements also award fixed spools, regardless of level at the same quality of the bronze cache:

  • Greater Spool — Campaign quests, heroic raids
  • Spool — Reputation, zone tours, LFR, and normal raids
  • Lesser Spool — Treasures, rares, heroic scenarios, heroic dungeons
  • Minor Spool — Exploration, normal scenarios, normal dungeons, world bosses

Beyond all of that, the Troves of the Thunder King will drop spools as well.

Upgrading and item levels

As players gain levels, armor and weapons that drop or are found inside a  [Cache of Infinite Treasure] will have an increased base item level, starting at item level 13 at level 10, scaling all the way up to item level 346 at level 70. Items can be upgraded by paying Momentus a nominal [Bronze] charge at any Infinite Bazaar. However, item drops are frequent enough that it will not be necessary to pay to upgrade gear until reaching level 70. Gear will not drop at higher than ilvl 346.

At level 70/ilvl 346 (upgrade level 19/34), all items must be upgraded in lock-step to unlock the next upgrade rank. For example, to reach ilvl 374 (upgrade level 21/34), all upgradeable items first must be at or above ilvl 360 (upgrade level 20/34). Costs also drastically increase: where upgrades may have cost roughly 400 Bronze before, they now cost 2,530–9,000 Bronze per upgrade. To fully upgrade from ilvl 346 (upgrade level 19/34) to ilvl 556 (upgrade level 34), the following Bronze costs must be paid:

  • 135,000 (9,000 each) — Two-hand weapons
  • 67,500 (4,500 each) — One-hand/off-hand weapons, head, chest, legs
  • 50,625 (3,375 each) — Shoulder, hands, waist, feet
  • 37,950 (2,530 each) — Wrist

This means each round of upgrades costs 38,530 Bronze and a grand total of 577,950 Bronze (15 rounds) is required to raise all upgradeable slots to maximum. Accessories (necks, rings, and trinkets) cannot be upgraded.

Qualities and stats

Equipment starts at uncommon quality and armor will roll a random secondary/tertiary stat, while weapons will only have primary stats (agility/intellect/strength). For example, any chestpiece could roll one of versatility, leech, or avoidance. The magnitude of the stat is fixed based on ilvl, but different stats will provide different value.

At rare quality, armor will pick up the class's primary stat, and weapons will gain stamina.

At epic quality, armor rolls another secondary/tertiary stat, and weapons roll their first (and only) secondary/tertiary stat. Heroic or Mythic mode raids have the highest chance of dropping epic quality gear, but even open world gear has an extremely slim chance of rolling an epic upgrade.

Many new customizable items can be found and each item slot has their own unique identity with ability gem sockets. These sockets come with exciting turbo-charged new effects similar to trinkets. Additionally, each time an item is looted, it has a chance of rolling powerful upgrades that unlock increased permanent stats.

Gems can be found in a  [Cache of Infinite Treasure], drop directly from mobs, or can be purchased in exchange for 200–500 [Bronze] from Lidamorrutu at Infinite Bazaars. Gems can be equipped like normal by shift-right-clicking on gear with slots, and can be removed by using the [Extract Gem] ability learned automatically after looting a gem. Each slot has specified gem sockets, as shown in the table.

By level 60, players should have all non-prismatic gems drop, so there is no need to spend Bronze to purchase them.

Meta gems

Meta gems provide throughput abilities and slot into helms. An  [Asynchronized Meta Gem] will randomly create an unlearned gem.

Cogwheel gems

Cogwheel gems provide movement abilities and slot into foot armor. An  [Asynchronized Cogwheel Gem] will randomly create an unlearned gem.

Tinker gems

Tinker gems provide passive utility abilities and slot into shoulders, wrists, hands, and waists. An  [Asynchronized Tinker Gem] will randomly create an unlearned gem.

Prismatic gems

Prismatic gems provide stats and slot into chests, legs, and accessories (neck, ring, trinket). They can be combined to create a more powerful version from chipped to flawed to standard to perfect. Unlike other gem types, prismatic gems are not bound, so they can be traded. A purchased  [Asynchronized Prismatic Gem] will randomly create a chipped prismatic gem.

Prismatic gems give stats based on the ilvl of the item that they're socketed into.

A health regen series of gems was datamined ( [Sustaining Emerald]), but they are not dropping on the live servers.

Collectibles

Many new or previously unobtainable mounts, pets, toys, and cosmetics are available. Additionally, items that are available in Dragonflight today with a low drop rate (like world boss mounts) can be purchased by Remix characters using [Bronze]. The sections below list only new collectibles, and Bronze purchases of old mounts are listed on the Hemet Nesingwary XVII article.

Mounts

Mounts are sold by Hemet Nesingwary XVII or are achievement rewards, and Pandaria Remix-exclusive mounts cost 2,200–6,600 Bronze, while rare Retail mounts cost 18,700–38,500 Bronze. Remix-only mounts cost a total of 103,400 Bronze. Should players want to purchase all of Hemet's stock, it will cost 524,700 Bronze.

Hemet's retail mount collection consists of the following:

Pets and toys

New pets and toys are achievement rewards. Old toys are sold by Horos at Infinite Bazaars for 2,200–50,000 Bronze. The total Bronze outlay for all old toys is 260,050.

Timerunners at exactly level 35 can queue for and complete Theramore's Fall and will receive the  [Theramore Tabard] or  [Mini Mana Bomb] in the mail, for Alliance and Horde characters respectively. Characters above or below level 35 will not trigger the mail.

Appearances

Many appearance ensembles are sold by Larah Treebender (world), Arturos (dungeons), Aeonicus (LFR), Durus (normal raids), and Pythagorus (heroic and mythic raids), and are listed on their respective articles. Larah's appearances include some unique-to-remix transmog, while the others sell appearances from their listed modes and can be farmed on the retail realms. Ensembles do not have a bronze discount for partially-acquired appearances of the set.

These appearances from Larah are unique to remix:

Arturos also sells unique dungeon/scenario recolors for 2,500 Bronze each that also drop from dungeons during Remix:

Class arsenals and ensembles (which are recolors from the Trading Post) are rewarded from  [Isle of Thunder] and  [Landfall], respectively. After earning those achievements, other class sets can be purchased from Grandmaster Jakkus at Infinite Bazaars for 3,000 and 4,000 [Bronze].

Garrosh heirlooms and Tusks

Heirloom weapons that originally dropped from Garrosh Hellscream are also available for purchase for 2x  [Bones of Mannoroth] and 8,000 [Bronze] from Pythagorus. Pythagorus also sells the  [Tusks of Mannoroth] appearance for 20 Bones and 38,500 Bronze. Bones drop from Garrosh on Normal difficulty or higher in the Siege of Orgrimmar. Note that during the remix, all normal difficulty or higher raids have a daily lockout, rather than weekly.

Quests

Newly-created characters spawn at level 10 in a bubble on the Timeless Isle, where Eternus starts a questline to anchor players and give them their  [Cloak of Infinite Potential] before sending them off to start the Jade Forest storyline. Alts of timerunners who have completed the intro can speak with Eternus to skip ahead to N [10-70] Recalling the War.

  1. N [10-70] It's About Time
  2. N [10-70] Seeking Expert Advice
  3. N [10-70] Weave It To Me & N [10-70] Knot My Problem
  4. N [10-70] What's Hours Is Yours
  5. N [10-70] Cloak and Needle
  6. N [10-70] Goodbyes Are Hard When You Live Forever
  7. N [10-70] Recalling the War

Nearly all quests of the Mists of Pandaria campaign are available in Pandaria Remix, which require the levels shown in the Levels and content section above:

Achievements

Most Pandaria Remix content has associated achievements that are awarded for completing said content. Achievements reward various levels of Bronze Caches or, from the meta achievements, actual rewards. They also reward Spools of threads for the  [Cloak of Infinite Potential]. These achievements are classified as Feats of Strength and award no achievement points. Earning many of these achievements will also earn their equivalent Retail achievements, which do award achievement points. For example, the quest chains necessary for B  [Campaign: The Jade Forest] are the same as for  [Upjade Complete].  [Mythic Remix: Siege of Orgrimmar] is a hidden feat of strength achievement.

Unavailable content

Various features will not make an appearance in Pandaria Remix, including:

While it is possible to teleport out of Pandaria with certain toys and abilities, the character is then promptly teleported back.  [Scouting Map: A Stormstout's Guide to Pandaria] is not useable by Timerunners during Remix.

Some quests require going to a zone outside Pandaria, which will allow the player to finish the quest(s) but venturing too far from the questing area will teleport the player back to the quest giver. An example of this would be some quests in the Landfall storyline which will take the Horde player to Teldrassil and Silvermoon City at different points of the story.

Notes

  • Allied races are eligible for their heritage armor while leveling in Remix, but the achievement and quest for reaching level 50 will become available after the event ends.[1]

  • Dragonflight Hotfix (2024-05-21):
    • We have made the following changes to improve Thread of Time gain for the  [Cloak of Infinite Potential]. Our goal with these additional items is to give players access to more Threads of Time from daily repeatable sources. These should serve as readily attainable power-ups from a wide variety of content, so players can enjoy the breadth of Pandaria while also gaining additional power. There are four new items that grant players escalating amounts of power for the Cloak of Infinite Potential:
    • Players will be able to find these new items from a variety of solo and group sources, ensuring all players have accessible ways to improve their cloak:
      • Infinite Bazaar Repeatable Dailies
      • First-Time Daily Scenario, Dungeon, and each LFR queue
      • World Bosses
      • Remix Achievements
        • Each of these achievements are available for additional characters to complete as well for bonus Bronze - and now bonus Spools of Eternal Thread.
      • Troves of the Thunder King scenario on the Isle of Thunder
    • We've made the following changes and bugfixes are intended to address concerns about the balance of low- and high-level players in various Remix content.
      • The health of creatures in heroic scenarios has been decreased by 20% - 25%, based on the players' levels. Higher level players will see enemies incur a larger decrease.
      • The health and damage of creatures on the Timeless Isle, Isle of Giants, and Isle of Thunder has been reduced.
      • Several spell gems (that were not scaling up or down correctly based on player level) have been adjusted so that they provide a more-appropriate scaling effect. This includes  [Cold Front],  [Windweaver],  [Vampiric Aura], and  [Lightning Rod].
      • Spell gems with shielding effects should no longer cause threat.
      • Fixed a bug with  [Righteous Frenzy] not canceling upon the end of combat.
      •  [Timerunner's Vial] mana regen significantly increased.
    • Adjusted the reputation granted from Granite Quilen to be more in line with expected values.
    • Fixed an issue in Guo-Lai Halls causing trap tiles to flicker.
  • Dragonflight Hotfix (2024-05-20):

    • Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune.
    • Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level.
    • Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up.
      • Developers' notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze.
    • The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a  [Thread of Experience] in addition to the existing  [Lesser Bronze Cache].
      • Developers' notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly.
    • We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience.
    • We've increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons.
      • Developers' notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably.
    • We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%.
    • Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor.
  • Dragonflight Hotfix (2024-05-16): Fixed a bug that initially prevented players who did not own Dragonflight from being able to learn Dragonriding from Lord Andestrasz in Remix: Pandaria. This was unintended.
  • Dragonflight Patch 10.2.7 (2024-05-07): Added.
