Shadowlands Season 4 is Live, Closing a Chapter in World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft has officially opened Shadowlands Season 4, and this brings another chapter to a close with the Dragonflight expansion on the way.

Still, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, as Season 4 is still bringing something special to close things out, including eight dungeons from previous expansions, new rewards, affixes, and more to do and earn. In fact, Season 4 is designed to give players opportunities to get pieces they missed, complete sets, and earn gear before the next expansion. There are no Legendary Ranks or Crafters Marks. Just raids, dungeons, PvP, and opportunities for rewards, old and new.

One of the three Shadowlands raids will be Fated each week, which will also give the bosses within that status too. The raids–Castle Nathria, Sanctum of Domination, and Sepulcher of the First Ones–will rotate Fated status each week to add some risk and reward to familiar raids as the season goes on. When a raid is Fated, you can enter it on any difficulty and completing it, and beating its more difficult enemies and boss will get you rewards based on the difficulty you attempted. Since the Fated raid will rotate, you can always try it out more than once.

Adding these Fated raids also opens up a new limited currency - Puzzling Cartel Dinars, which you get from completing a Fated raid. You can earn up to three in total during the season and each can be traded for a single weapon, gear piece, or trinket from one of the Shadowlands raids, giving another opportunity to complete any sets still missing something.

The returning dungeons from previous expansions include:

  • Tazavesh: Streets of Wonder (from the Shadowlands expansion)
  • Operation Mechagon: Workshop (from the Battle for Azeroth™ expansion)
  • Grimrail Depot (from the Warlords of Draenor™ expansion)
