WoW Shadowlands Weekly Reset

WoW servers will soon be down for the weekly reset - taking Shadowlands offline from 9 to 10am EST on Tuesday, March 23rd.

While players won't be able to hop into the game during this time, it's not something to dread!

What's Next After Shadowlands 9.0.5?

Shadowlands hit its biggest update yet with Shadowlands 9.0.5 - introducing Valor Points and tons of changes all around.

But while this patch was huge, it isn't the Shadowlands patch everyone is looking forward to.

Shadowlands 9.1 Progress

The real patch fans are looking forward to is Shadowlands 9.1 - the Chains of Domination update that was teased at BlizzCon 2021. This update will introduce a new raid, new dungeon, and plenty more to the game.

PRIEST NO MORE: Anduin Wrynn has begun a new path in 9.1

In the meantime, though, after 2 weeks without a Shadowlands hotfix update - we think this week will feature a new Shadowlands patch with the March 23rd weekly reset.
