WoW Shadowlands Weekly Reset Brings Sanctum of Domination

WoW Shadowlands will soon really kick into high gear by releasing the new raid from the 9.1 update, Sanctum of Domination.

Here's everything you need to know about this week's Shadowlands weekly reset, its server downtime, and what it will bring to the game - as well as the Sanctum of Domination release schedule by phase.

Shadowlands Weekly Reset - July 6 Schedule

As always, the WoW Shadowlands Weekly Reset has taken Shadowlands servers down starting at 10am EST. This downtime is extended this week to 4 hours, however, and is currently scheduled to run to 2pm EST.

NEXT STEP: Shadowlands 9.1 has been live for a week, but the Sanctum of Domination is only just opening

This could be extended pending any technical issues pushing Sanctum of Domination live in Shadowlands.

Sanctum of Domination - Content, Release Schedule

The biggest part of WoW Shadowlands 9.1, the Chains of Domination update, didn't actually go live with the rest of the patch. That part would be the new WoW Shadowlands raid Sanctum of Domination.
