All news in detail
Patch 9.2 “Eternity’s End” heralds the final act of the Shadowlands saga in World of Warcraft, before moving on to the new expansion. This also means that an ad shouldn’t be long in coming. But before that, let’s take a look at the content available today and the upcoming Shadowlands Season 3.
As part of End of Eternity, you can enter the great realm of Zereth Mortis directly for the first time. Mysterious and secret things await you there, like the great Forge of the Beyond built by the First Ones. She is at the center and is responsible for the creation of the shadowlands. The guardians of this place are known by the name “Automa”. To get your bearings in the new area, you will be assigned a personal companion called “Pocopoc”. Together with him you will learn to use the new progress system, the figures of the first. You learn the new language to unravel the mysteries of Zereth Mortis. As you progress, you unlock more and more daily quests, events, pets, mounts, and achievements.
Of course, completing the new zone also involves exploring, collecting hidden loot, and completing the story. If you have done all of this, you will get an achievement that will allow you to fly in the new area. Additionally, as you progress, you gain access to another legendary item: the Belt of Unity, which can use your Pact rune effect and scales with Shifting Pacts. Specifically, to unlock the legendary belt in WoW, you must complete the seventh chapter of the Zereth Mortis campaign.
Completing the campaign and earning a respectful reputation with the Enlightened faction grants access to the Unity Memory. This perk allows you to use the Runecarving effect on another slot on your team, or alternatively give another character a Legendary item instantly.
In the weeks following the release of End of Eternity, the new “Mausoleum of the First” raid will also begin, featuring a total of eleven bosses. There you meet the jailer who wants to reshape reality and defies the laws of physics. Of course, Anduin also plays a central role there.
Speaking of raids: with patch 9.2, the long-missed T-Sets in World of Warcraft are finally making a comeback. Depending on your class and skill, the “Parent Set” gives you additional bonuses as soon as you have created two or four parts of the set. Ah, that brings back memories. Of course, there are again five parts to the set in total: helmet, shoulders, chest protection, gloves and leg protection. By the way, you can get the new T-Set not only in the new raid, but also alternately through activities in the large treasury and in other places.
The upcoming third season was already mentioned at the beginning. Patch 9.2 also has new content for PvP fans. For a long time now, a completely new arena has made its way into the game: the Maldraxxus Coliseum. The new Vicious Warstalker, Vicious Warsquaker, and Cosmic Gladiator’s Soul Eater mounts are available to successful Arena players. Those who prefer to be alone in Torghast can look forward to four new levels there. Additionally, Torghast will receive a brand new game mode called Dungeon Master’s Gauntlet, which will require you to defeat a series of bosses in exchange for unique rewards.
Anyone who counts instances of Mythic+ among their favorite activities in WoW will also get something on sale. Mythic+ is also scheduled to receive many updates as part of Eternity’s End, including the new Encrypted affix and the new Losswarped Deathwalker bounty mount. To get this, you need to complete the Key Master: Season 3 achievement.
