WoW Servers DOWN (May 31): Weekly Reset, Server Maintenance, & Shadowlands 9.2.5 Release Time

Every week World of Warcraft servers go offline for maintenance for the weekly reset.

For players in North America, this happens on Tuesdays, while European players—and other regions—go through it on Wednesdays. These weekly resets are used to implement new patches, reset raid lockouts, and help solve any technical or server-side issues with regular maintenance.

Here's when WoW servers will go down for maintenance for the weekly reset this week ahead of the launch of WoW Shadowlands 9.2.5.

LATEST - WoW Shadowlands 9.2.5 delayed, maintenance extended

Shadowlands' last update, patch 9.2.5, has been delayed due to an extension to maintenance.

According to Blizzard via the official Blizzard CS Twitter, maintenance has been extended from the original 6 pm EST timeframe to 8 pm EST.

This means that WoW players will have to wait a little longer be getting their hands on the game's latest patch.

WoW Weekly Reset Maintenance Schedule

Due to each WoW game being different, one can expect contrasting timetables for their maintenances. Although they all happen on the same day (Tuesday for NA and Wednesday for EU and other regions), the time that servers return differs.
