GRAVE MISTAKE: Nurgash is the Shadowlands World Boss this week

World Bosses in Shadowlands drop some nice loot, and are a tough enough fight that you'll want to find a raid group in LFG to take them on.

This week's Shadowlands World Boss will be Nurgash Muckformed.

What's New in Shadowlands This Week?

Retail WoW players are waiting for the next big step for Shadowlands - and with 9.0.5 recently going live, that's the big 9.1 Chains of Domination update.

TRANSFORMATION: Anduin is evolving with Shadowlands 9.1

Shadowlands patch 9.1 was revealed at BlizzCon 2021 - and will include the new raid Sanctum of Domination (where players will clash with Sylvanas, the Eye of the Jailer, the Tarragrue, and Kel'Thuzad among others), a new unique dungeon, new zone, and flying in Shadowlands!

With so many things coming soon, it's hard for players not to look ahead. This is only made worse by Blizzard still not offering a Shadowlands 9.1 release date.

The good news is Shadowlands 9.0.5 is the biggest update of the expansion so far.
