The World of Warcraft: Shadowlands phase at BlizzCon 2021 was disappointing. Do not get me mistaken: The replace itself, referred to as Chains of Domination, sounds amazing. Throughout the Shadowlands Update panel, recreation director Ion Hazzikostas and principal recreation designer Jeremy Feasel laid out their imaginative and prescient for a brand new raid, mega-dungeon, and the brand new chapter within the story. However apart from a cool cinematic trailer, Blizzard had little or no to indicate as an example the replace, and there was nearly zero precise element in regards to the new development programs, boss fights, or new actions. The very best we received had been screenshots so bland they might’ve been from anyplace within the Shadowlands. And it made one factor clear: The brand new replace is probably going months away.

It has been 92 days since Shadowlands launched. That is simply sufficient time that almost all gamers are knee-deep in its endgame mixture of dungeons, raids, and PvP. Shadowlands’ new Covenant system, which helps you to improve an undead faction hideout, at the moment has a complete of 40 Renown ranges, and devoted gamers ought to be round Renown degree 36. What I am saying is that, for lots of us, the brand new automotive scent on Shadowlands is gone. And whereas there’s nonetheless loads to do in Shadowlands proper now, lots of us can see the end line and are keen to leap into one thing new.
