World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Team Issues A Statement About The Future

World of Warcraft Shadowlands players can now dive into content update 9.1.5, which brings with it a slew of balance updates, quality of life changes, and more.
Some of the changes and new features in today’s update include:
  • Class Balance Changes – Among the numerous changes is a shift in how area-of-effect (AOE) damage works. Instead of the previous hard cap of five targets, AOE abilities can now affect more, but with diminishing damage beyond the fifth
  • New Race Customizations – As part of the continued effort to allow players to visually express themselves, new customizations are here for Highmountain Tauren, Lightforged Draenei, Nightborne, and Void Elves.
  • Covenant Changes – Players are now able to freely swap covenants with no cooldown or penalty, and bring with them everything they’ve earned from their previous covenant activity.
  • Legion Timewalking – Six Legion dungeons enter the Timewalking rotation, in both heroic mode and in Mythic+ for its two-week duration. In addition, the Mage Tower will make a return with new color variants of the Mythic Tier 20 gear as a reward!
  • Korthia Updates – Players will see a boost in efficiency with new travel points, increased relic and fragment drops, and remote anima deposit.
  • Legacy Content Updates – those who enjoy farming old content for mount drops and gear will find some balance updates for solo gameplay, including raid bosses, Island Expeditions, Warfronts and more.
  • And much more!

Interesting read here as the team talks about the future of the game and their plans.

The *World of Warcraft* development team have issued a statement on
Shadowlands 9.1.5 as well as Burning Crusade Classic Overlords of Outland.
Over the past few weeks since we shared an update, the WoW team has been
focused on the immediate future—both for our people and workplace, and
what’s next for players too. As a part of that, the entire team came
together to ask: What are the biggest things we’re hearing are getting in
the way of your fun, and what are the most impactful changes we could make
to WoW today to fix that?
Shadowlands Update 9.1.5 will be going on the PTR next week, and a lot of
what you’ll find in it is the direct result of your collective feedback. It
includes long-asked-for changes to make it easier to swap covenants and
conduits, updates to make it so you don’t need to repeat covenant campaigns
on alts, new character customization options for some races that were
lacking them, and many more changes to help you play the way you want.
It also has updates to improve the game environment for our community,
including additional changes to some content to better reflect our shared
values, better visibility into the impact of your in-game reports of
harassment, and more serious penalties for people engaged in disruptive
We hope you’ll see something from your own 9.1.5 wish list when we post the
patch notes next week, and we’ll keep listening, refining, and building on
that as we continue PTR testing and development of what’s next.
For our Burning Crusade Classic players, we’re excited to let you know that
the first major content update, Overlords of Outland, will be going live
soon. Starting September 15, you’ll be able to take on Prince Kael’thas and
Lady Vashj in a pair of iconic raids, engage in a new season of Arena
combat, and more. We’re also working on something for WoW Classic players
who’ve told us they’d like a chance at a fresh start, and will be sharing
more on our plans soon.
Creating World of Warcraft is truly a collaborative effort between the
people on our team, across Blizzard, and all of you—and as we build,
iterate on, and talk about what’s next, we hope we can demonstrate our
commitment to making Azeroth the best place it can be for everyone.
