The next Shadowlands update players are looking forward to is Update 9.1, which was previewed at BlizzCon 2021. Update 9.1 (Chains of Domination) will feature the new PVP season, alongside a new raid, and plenty more.
PVP can at times feel like the forgotten side of World of Warcraft gameplay. In Shadowlands, however, some big changes have been massively appreciated.
This includes the return of Honor and Conquest points in WoW Shadowlands, allowing players to gear up at their own pace and see it all come together incrementally. Even better, players can also upgrade this gear further with the item upgrade system returning.
This all lands alongside the new Great Vault in Shadowlands, which offers another fantastic gearing system to WoW PVP.
The return of Honor, Conquest, and PVP Vendors
WoW Shadowlands brought PVP back to its roots, fighting for currencies for gear.
With Conquest points capped weekly and Honor points to fill the gaps, the PVP gearing journey is smooth and very rewarding.
You can earn Conquest from several avenues including in the Arena, Rated Battlegrounds, and quests.
You can earn Honor from all PVP related events - including Battlegrounds, world PVP and quests.
