The reset will arrive Tuesday, 19 January, beginning at 10am EST.


The Shadowlands weekly reset is scheduled to run to 11am EST, but delays can happen depending on any extra updates that are made during reset.

During this time, Shadowlands servers will be down entirely.

The Shadowlands Weekly Reset means refreshing content lockouts, but it also means new content - and several new quests will be added to the game.

These quests include content around your Covenant of choice, The Maw, and Torghast.

Great Vault

While lockout resets are massively important in WoW, the real thing players are waiting for in the Shadowlands weekly reset is new Great Vault loot.

Players will get massive Great Vault rewards depending on the content milestones they reached last week. That means it's more important to get your Mythic keystones, Castle Nathria kills, and Arena rating improvements done before reset.

Here's how to get the best loot in your Shadowlands Great Vault this week.


Shadowlands Update Patch Notes

WoW Shadowlands received a string of recent hotfix updates up to 15 January.

You can read over the latest WoW Shadowlands update patch notes below:


  • Fixed an issue that prevented Horde players from earning the Vicious Saddle achievements.


  • Warrior
    • Challenging Shout's cooldown will now correctly reset when a raid encounter ends.


  • Necrolord
    • Channeling Fleshcraft (Covenant Ability) is now correctly interrupted by using items, such as activating trinkets.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue that prevented Spatial Realignment Apparatus from making items it was used on untradable.

Since the last few days have been silent from Blizzard after a string of daily updates before, we expect more changes will be made during the upcoming Shadowlands reset on 19 January.
