World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.1.5: Release Date, Patch Notes and All You Need To Know

World of Warcraft Shadowlands

Update 9.1.5 is coming to World of Warcraft (WoW) Shadowlands and we have all the information you need to know ahead of its release.

The eighth expansion pack for the massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft was announced in November 2019.

It is very popular with the WoW community and the fact that many still play it a year and a half later emphasises that the developers made a great expansion pack.

These updates are not only big, but are very important as they provide a lot of big bug fixes and good changes to the game.

Here is everything you need to know about World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.1.5:

Release Date

The patch will come out twice. The first time it will be released is over the next couple days, hopefully between Thursday 9th September and Monday 13th September 2021. The official date has not been confirmed. When the patch is released between these dates, it will only be on the Public Test Realm.

Its official release won’t be for a few months, with many believing it will go live in early November. Hopefully we get official dates confirmed by Warhammer soon. This update has been partially released around November 2nd 2021, but we do expect the whole update to come out by November 12th 2021.

Patch Notes

There are patch notes currently out for this update, but these are very early patch notes and could be changed. If there are changes, we will update this page as soon as possible.

All these patch notes have come from the official notes on Blizzard’s site
