September 28th's WoW Shadowlands Weekly Reset - What you need to know

We know it feels like WoW Shadowlands has been in a bit of a limbo state since the reveal of the 9.1.5 update - mainly because we don't have a release date - but there are still a few changes worth mentioning ahead of this week's Weekly Reset. Here's everything you need to know...

UPDATE - Hotfix changes detailed

The Weekly Reset is still on schedule, but there's a couple of Hotfix changes being made ahead of time - They're minor but they should help to improve WoW Shadowlands as a whole.

Here's what we know about the most recent set of Hotfix changes so far:

  • Sanctum of Domination
    • Kel'Thuzad
      • Howling Blizzard ice patches are now immediately removed when pushing to his Phylactery Phase.
  • Theatre of Pain
    • Fixed an issue where gladiators in the Halls of Might could sometimes remain immune to player abilities after finishing their duel.

We know that these are only related to dungeons and raids, but they're something? We should see a more substantial update from Blizzard and the World of Warcraft team soon.

WoW Shadowlands Weekly Reset Schedule (Sept. 28)

The WoW Shadowlands weekly reset will take servers down at 11am EST on Tuesday, September 28th.
