When are we going to tease the Jailer up close and get our revenge on Sylvanas Windrunner? World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has been available since last November, and during BlizzConline, the next patch was unveiled. Chains of Domination will bring us a new raid, a new mega-dungeon and a new zone, among others – you can find our full recap here.
When is the Chains of Domination release date?
Oof, starting off with the bad news, are we? Well, here’s the thing: Blizzard hasn’t revealed an official launch date (or given us a rough window) but Chains of Domination probably won’t release until summer. That’s a few too many months away, but it makes sense when you remember that a smaller patch, 9.0.5, is coming this March and is fixing up a bunch of systems and addressing some of players’ biggest complaints. We’ll update this section when we know more, though.
Chains of Domination is a fairly complex patch, with the Sanctum of Domination raid and the Korthia zone to explore, so I’d definitely count on the full three months for testing. Flying in Shadowlands zones will also be coming with this patch as will significant updates to Torghast. That’s a fair amount to test in a PTR, expecting that all in less than three months of testing seems overly optimistic to me.
Flying in Shadowlands
Since the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, players were not able to use flying mounts to soar across the skies.
With the Shadowlands: Chains of Domination update, players will finally be able to fly, which will make getting to their destinations much easier.
Specific requirements for flying in Shadowlands is still to be revealed. However, we do know there will be limits. Players will only be able to use flying in the Covenant zones of Bastion, Maldraxxus, Revendreth and Ardenweald.
Unfortunately, any new zones, as well as the Maw, will not see flying enabled.
First, because an arrival on the PTR was announced shortly after BlizzConline, and a month later, nothing is available. Although the times may vary, it takes an average of six weeks between the arrival of a patch on the PTR and on the live servers. Also, we haven’t really had any details on the various gameplay elements like the new Soul Pipes, or the new Legendary Upgrade System.
Chains of Domination content: New raid, dungeon, city & more
As per a report from WoWHead, which reveals the full Press Kit for the Chains of Domination update, there’s a whole lot of content to look forward to.
This includes a brand-new raid, a new zone, new Covenant armour, and more.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the patch is delayed a bit by that aforementioned raid testing — a new raid is a complex beast, and they’re going to have to try and work that while also testing other systems. Korthia will require a good deal of testing work as well and just like anything else you can’t really short that kind of thing. Knowing that the PTR will be in mid-April, and with the amount of testing the patch probably need, I can’t imagine patch 9.1 launching before mid-July.
