share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

World of Warcraft Shadowlands is now approaching a huge content update, patch 9.0.5, which brings buffs and nerfs for every class in the game.

With some buffs making classes feel brand new, we can't wait for the update to live!


But these changes won't be live until after servers go down for the Shadowlands weekly reset.

LATEST - It's Going Down ( As Planned )

It looks like the next major patch is being applied ahead of the World of Warcraft Shadowlands weekly reset and that means that the servers are down.

If past updates are anything to go by, then this should only be down for about an hour.

That means you should be able to jump back in by 11:00 ET / 16:00 GMT!

You can keep an eye for yourself on any World of Warcraft server downtime on Down Detector here too.

This week's reset could very well be the most important of Shadowlands so far.

Let's go over all the finer details as Shadowlands 9.0.5 is right around the corner.

9.0.5 Update Patch Notes

The WoW Shadowlands 9.0.5 update has a massive list of patch notes, clocking in at nearly 8,000 words.

You can read over the class balance changes - including huge Shaman buffs, Druid buffs and more, here.

Along with class changes, 9.0.5 features Covenant changes, new PVP balance changes, Valor Points, and plenty more as well.

Server Downtime

Shadowlands players will have to wait for the update, however, which goes live after regional restarts.

The Shadowlands weekly reset maintenance is scheduled to start at 10:00 EST / 15:00 GMT and run for roughly an hour.

This means players can expect Shadowlands 9.0.5 to be live in-game at roughly 11:00 EST / 15:00 GMT.

While this is the usually scheduled time, however, the patch may slow things down with its many changes, so servers could be down for some extra time this week.
