SLIPPED THROUGH: A bluepost has leaked the upcoming Shadowlands 9.1 update

Here's what Blizzard have leaked about the upcoming update just ahead of BlizzCon 2021:

"The traitorous Site Denathrius has been defeated... but the power of the Maw still grows. In Chains of Domination, the upcoming first major content update for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, players will delve into new depths of the Jailer's hopeless domain, seeking to understand the true nature of his malignant plans.
But the Banished One has a terrible new champion in his service - a cruel instrument of despair conscripted by Sylvanas Windrunner, capable of installing dread into the hearts of Azeroth's heroes like no creature of the Shadowlands.

Discover the Mysteries of Korthia - The Jailer is searching for the key to fulfill his twisted designs - and he has pulled a fragment of a long-lost domain into the Maw itself to find it. Seek answers in ancient Korthia, the City of Secrets, and engage in new quests and outdoor activities.

The Covenants Strike Back - With the strength of the kyrian, night fae, necrolords, and venthyr restored, embark on a new campaign to unite the four covenants - and together, launch an assault against the Jailer in his home territory.

Raid the Sanctum of Domination - Brave treacherous, unexplored reaches of Torghast in a new 10-boss raid: the Sanctum of Domination. Encounter the true Eye of the Jailer, turn the tide against the Tarragrue, and come face-to-face with the Banshee Queen herself in a fateful confrontation.

New Mega-dungeon - Tazavesh, the Veiled Market - Gather your party and discover exotic wares and strange creature in an eight-boss Mythic mega-dungeon set in a bazaar of the mysterious Brokers, and culminating in a high-stakes heist to steal powerful artifacts from Azeroth.

And More - Gear up for Shadowlands Raid, Dungeon, and PvP Season 2, with a seasonal Mythic Keystone dungeon affix themed around the Jailer's power; don new Covenant cosmetics armor sets that any class can wear; expand the powers of your Soulbinds and Conduits; add new mounts and pets to your menagerie; Unlock flying in the Convenants' four domains; and much more."

Patch Notes

While we don't have an official set of patch notes, these new Chains of Domination leaks give us very high hopes for a massive Shadowlands 9.1 update.

A NEW WORLD: Shadowlands is adding a ton in 9.1, Chains of Domination

We expect these changes will all be made at the same time, rather than spaced out between Shadowlands updates.

That means WoW Shadowlands 9.1 should include the following:

  • Sanctum of Domination 10-boss raid (Sylvanas, Kel'Thuzad, Eye of Jailer)
  • Flying in Shadowlands
  • Main story quests
  • Tazavesh, the Veiled Market 8-boss dungeon
  • Shadowlands PVP Season 2
  • New Mythic Keystone Affix
  • New Korthia, the City of Secrets zone
