LATEST - WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5 COUNTDOWN


Shadowlands 9.1.5 is just hours out now, so it's time to get prepared!

It's important to note that like any other modern WoW update, maintenance could last between less than an hour to up to 14 hours. All things considered, however, we expect players will be able to jump in Shadowlands 9.1.5 at 6pm EST on its release date, Tuesday, November 2nd!

Count down the final hours to release time with us here as we cover all the latest news.

Shadowlands 9.1.5 Release Date REVEALED

The first phase of WoW Shadowlands was a long one, and that pace has stayed true with Shadowlands 9.1.5 as well.

ALL EYES ON: Blizzard have finally revealed when players can get their hands on Shadowlands 9.1.5

Blizzard has finally revealed the next update's release date, though, and it's not far off now!

WoW Shadowlands 9.15 will go live on Tuesday, November 2nd.


Release Time

We expect Shadowlands 9.1.5 will extend the weekly server maintenance on Tuesday, keeping WoW Shadowlands servers down from 11am EST to around 5pm EST before going live with the new changes.

It's not unheard of for this maintenance to be extended several times before going live - so don't hang your hat on being able to play WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5 much on launch day. It wouldn't be a World of Warcraft launch without some hiccups.

Biggest Changes in WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5

WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5 won't be bringing a new raid, but it's still a major patch that will shake up gameplay with buffs, nerfs, and new features.

Here are the biggest changes coming in WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5:

AOE Cap removed

The AOE cap has been a mixed bag since its introduction, helping to balance some of the most overpowered AOE abilities in WoW today, but also imposing unintuitive limitations that differ depending on the ability.

ALL OUT: WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5 will remove the AOE cap limiting many abilities

WoW Shadowlands 9.15 will largely remove the AOE cap, but continuing in the confusion, some spells will simply have their limits changed a bit instead.

New Character Customization options

Allied Races are getting a ton of new customization options and visual improvements, with most of these changes centering around the Lightforged Draenei and Nightborne.

Return of the Mage Tower

The Mage Tower is one of the most fondly remembered aspects of World of Warcraft Legion, and WoW Shadowlands 9.1.5 will see its return!
