Blizzard official press release

The world of World of Warcraft is so rich in news that we know it can sometimes be difficult to follow all the social media posts or forum responses. To make it easier for you, we wanted to provide you with a quick summary of the latest news and developments that we are focusing on, both for Shadowlands and WoW Classic.

The team is currently looking forward to the following two upcoming updates: the Lords of Outland content update for Burning Crusade Classic, and update 9.1.5 for Shadowlands.

The Lords of Outland content update goes live worldwide on September 15 at 11:59 p.m. KST, and will bring you back to your favorite Burning Crusade quests and raids.

Alongside this, we’ve rolled out a number of hotfixes in Shadowlands for Patch 9.1.5, including a change that will allow you to get more middle energy every day, and a lot more.

A wide range of changes and improvements are added and adjusted in real time on the 9.1.5 PTR. More fixes will be rolled out throughout the week, and we look forward to your feedback.

Let’s take a closer look.

LEGENDARY RAIDS MAKE THEIR RETURN IN BURNING CRUSADE CLASSIC

The final chapter in the Burning Crusade story brings a host of new allies who need your help. The Ogri’la and Sha’tari Skyguard factions include new daily quests and rewards. In addition, new features will help you cooperate better with your fellow adventurers, such as guild banks and the group finder.

On September 15 at 11:59 p.m. KST, two new raids will launch simultaneously worldwide on all realms. These raids each host two of Illidan’s powerful lieutenants:

The Serpent Sanctuary Cave, where the heroes will descend to an aquatic lair to defeat the vile lady Vashj.

The Eye, in Tempest Keep, where you will enter the heart of a crystalline fortress to put an end to the chaos engendered by Kael’Thas Sunstrider.

Additionally, Burning Crusade Classic Arena Season 2 begins and brings a whole new set of weapons and armor to obtain.

ROAD TO SHADOWSHADOW AND CONTENT UPDATE 9.1.5

Last week, we rolled out a number of fixes in preparation for larger updates that will be rolling out with Content Update 9.1.5.

This update will result in the complete removal of the Intermediate Energy system, but in the meantime we have deployed a fix to change the Intermediate Energy recharge rate to 10 units per day (from 1 previously). This temporary measure should make it easier for players to change intermediaries.

More fixes are expected to be rolled out this week. To keep up to date with upcoming fixes, check out our regularly updated list.

Players can find out what to expect by logging into the 9.1.5 PTR. For now, we are focusing on testing secondary character gear and experience in Torment. Here is an overview of the most recent activities of the RPT:

NOTABLE CHANGES IN UPDATE 9.1.5 PTR

  • Dominance Shards drop rate has been increased.
  • Significantly increased Soul Slag received from Ranks 8–12, Den Assaults, Tormentormentors, and Command Table Missions.
  • Players who reach Renown level 80 can purchase an Honorary Trademark Mark for 500 Gold in Oribos. These marks can be used on another character to instantly grant them up to 40 levels of Renown. (Cannot be used beyond 40 Renown levels.)
  • Players can now purchase versions of Korthian weaponry that create a piece of gear for specific locations.
  • Players will be able to speak to Acquirer Ta’gosh in the Hall of Curiosities, who now sells a Portal Control Shard to activate the nearest Demon Gate.
  • The new customization options announced for Highmountain Tauren will arrive on the PTR at a later date.

TOURMENT, THE TOWER OF THE DAMNED

  • The weekly Soul Ash and Slag cap has been removed, allowing players to collect as many as they want or need.
  • Completing Wings multiple times now grants full Soul Ashes (was 20% after first pass).
  • Completing Wings multiple times now grants full Soul Slag (down from 20% after first pass).

If you’d like to access a more in-depth account of the changes being tested on the RPT, we’ve got you covered here, and as always, your feedback is welcome.
