Put simply Shadowlands-related news -- now that Blizzard has finally revealed the release date of this growth this October, we might also know when the Shadowlands pre-patch will fall. According to Icy Veins, based on published info from Wow gold classic Blizzard and previous pre-patches, the Shadowlands pre-patch 9.0.1 is expected to release on September 22 or September 29 with the first one being the most likely.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands is releasing internationally on October 27. Are you excited for the upcoming growth? Are you going to start enjoying World of Warcraft once again once the pre-patch hits? Hit the comments down below.

Patch 9.0, which will bring together the pre-expansion event combined with, you know, the expansion itself, has been on the PTR (Public Test Realm) for almost a month already, which means it's going to make its way to reside servers daily now.

But at the same time, the fact that Activision-Blizzard waited this long to announce the release date meant I was somewhat worried that some of the more bombastic expansion starts -- like that of the maligned Fight For Azeroth -- were something of the past.

However, a lot of angels shepherding the souls of the deceased to where they belong into the Shadowlands is pretty much exactly what I expected from at least one of those covenants in Shadowlands, therefore what really blew me was which characters were chosen to illustrate the covenant's purpose.

Blizzard centered the introduction to the Kyrian covenant around Uther the Lightbringer, who is one of the most critical characters in all of Warcraft. Not only was this dude the initial paladin, but he was also the instructor of buy wow gold Arthas Menethil, probably the most well-known villain in Warcraft history -- you may know him as the Lich King.
