THE COVENANTS STRIKE BACK

Return to the Maw with the restored strength of the kyrian, night fae, necrolords, and venthyr and together fight back to reclaim the Shadowlands from the Jailer's sinister encroachment. As you unravel the Jailer's dark designs you'll be able to fight back with newfound inner-strength, even allowing your mounts to once again be rideable in this ominous realm.

DISCOVER THE MYSTERIES OF KORTHIA

The Jailer is searching for the key to fulfill his twisted vision for the afterlives, and he has pulled a fragment of a long-lost domain into the Maw itself to find it: Korthia, City of Secrets. Dragged from the hidden byways of the In-Between, this landmass has its own strange creatures and brims with mysteries the likes of which the Shadowlands has never seen. It is these obscurities that the Jailer is truly after, the secrets of an enigmatic group known as the First Ones. During your adventures in the Maw and Korthia, you'll be able to earn new rewards including a spectral steed bound in spiked barding and a severed hand mount that will fearlessly crawl wherever you command.

RAID THE SANCTUM OF DOMINATION

Found beyond the labyrinthine halls of Torghast, the Sanctum of Domination is a new 10-boss raid. Encounter the true Eye of the Jailer, turn the tide against the Tarragrue, square off against Kel'Thuzad, and come face-to-face with the Banshee Queen herself in a fateful confrontation in World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

NEW MEGA-DUNGEON: TAZAVESH, THE VEILED MARKET

Gather your party and discover exotic wares and strange creatures in the new eight-boss Mythic mega-dungeon; Tazavesh: the Veiled Market. Set in a bazaar of the mysterious brokers, you'll face off against dastardly assassins, four-armed broker guards, an infinite pirate dragon, and other enemies as you chase down a wayward broker before she can unleash the might of a stolen artifact to realize her own designs. This Mythic-only instance can reward players with loot coveted by broker society—including a dazzling assortment of weaponry, otherworldly pets, and a mount.

EXPLORE NEW LAYERS IN TORGHAST, TOWER OF THE DAMNED

As we bring the fight to the Jailer's home domain, we'll be able to advance further inside his lair—Torghast, Tower of the Damned. Scour a never-before-seen wing of Torghast as you fight new enemies and evade deadly traps with a variety of game-changing powers.

TAKE TO THE SKIES

If you've got your eye on the skies above the afterlives of the Shadowlands, you'll be able to unlock flying by completing covenant activities and campaign chapters. Players who do unlock flying will then receive a specialized mount representing their covenant. Kyrian players will glide over gleaming fields on the backs of centurians, night fae will ride upon Ardenweald's powerful wolf serpents, necrolords will charge into battle upon corpseflies, and venthyr will take to the skies on newly awakened stoneborn.

NEW COVENANT COSMETIC ARMOR SETS

As you further support your covenant and earn renown, you'll be rewarded with a new covenant cosmetic armor set. This cosmetic armor set comes in four different colors and can be worn by any armor type—cloth, leather, mail, and plate. Each World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands armor set's tints can be mix and matched with the others to provide a variety of different looks to suit your desired appearance.
