World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.1.5 is going into PTR next week and brings with it some long-requested community features.

One of the biggest features is the ability to make it easier to swap covenant and conduits. Additional updates hitting PTR include the fact that you won’t have to keep repeating covenant campaigns on your alts.

Additionally, as we got word of this just recently, Shadowlands 9.1.5 is bringing more character customization into the mix for Nightborne and Lightforged Dranei. These new options include hair styles, hair colors, facial hair, skin colors, accessories, horns, tail lengths, tattoos, and various other options.

But these are not the only changes hitting Shadowlands 9.1.5 PTR. We should expect to see some changes to improve the overall game environment,

“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 behavior.”

As a reminder, Overloards of Outland for WoW Classic is hitting September 15. You can read the full update here. Shadowlands 9.1.5 will hit PTR against the backdrop of the ongoing Activision Blizzard Lawsuit alleging sexual harassment and discrimination.

Just recently, the Overwatch team announced they will change the name of McCree’s character this Fall. They noted yesterday,

“As we continue to discuss how we best live up to our values and to demonstrate our commitment to creating a game world that reflects them, we believe it’s necessary to change the name of the hero currently known as McCree to something that better represents what Overwatch stands for."
