WHEN THE SERVERS GO DOWN: Players will be scrambling for something to do during Reset

During this time, players may get some big ideas that Blizzard may just come through with the newly revealed Chains of Domination Shadowlands update (patch 9.1) this week.

While Blizzard has released some massive patches after the Weekly Reset in previous weeks, we'll have no such luck this time around.

Patch Notes

This week's Shadowlands Weekly Reset looks to not feature an accompanying patch.

NEXT STEP: The future is bright for Shadowlands

While this is a letdown after weeks of big content drops and the upcoming Shadowlands expansion reveal at BlizzCon 2021 - it's the reality.

The latest WoW Shadowlands hotfix was on February 18th - so fans should expect something soon.
