Where is the Shadowlands 9.1 Update?

Players have been patiently waiting for the biggest Shadowlands patch yet, the 9.1 Chains of Domination update, since its announcement at BlizzCon 2021 on February 19th.

WHAT'S NEXT?: The Chains of Domination update is long overdue

Despite all the months of waiting, players still don't have a definitive Shadowlands 9.1 release date.

With the raid being very important for the game's progression, adding the second raid of the expansion in Sanctum of Domination (as well as a new dungeon).


With no new word from Blizzard, it may be some weeks before players finally get to raid Sanctum of Domination, and confront Sylvanas Windrunner, the Eye of the Jailer, the Tarragrue, and Kel'Thuzad.
