World of Warcraft Shadowlands' Chains of Domination 9.1 Patch Goes Live June 29th

The next major content drop for World of Warcraft Shadowlands will be coming later this month. The 9.1 Chains of Domination patch will go live in retail WoW on June 29th.

The upcoming patch has been tested for the last few weeks on the PTR and it is finally starting to see the light of day on live. Coming June 29th, Chains of Domination will see players take to the skies with the Shadowlands flying perk, check out the Sanctum of Domniation raid, as well as explore a new zone in the Maw, Korthia.

Via the Blizzard website:

The Chains of Domination content update is packed with new features—brave a new area of the Maw—Korthia, the City of Secrets. Breach the Sanctum of Domination raid dungeon to confront the Jailer in the heart of Torghast. Discover the new mega-dungeon—Tazavesh, the Veiled Market, learn to take flight above the Shadowlands, and more.

You can check out the full launch trailer in the embed above. Chains of Domination was officially unveiled during BlizzConline 2021 earlier this year, seeing Anduin undergo quite the change at the Jailer and Sylvanas' hand. 9.1 continues the story of the latest Shadowlands expansion, and will see more of the story between Sylvanas Windrunner and the players unfold. 

There is still a week or so to prepare for 9.1, though if you want to dive in and see what it is all about you can do so on the PTR as well. Recently, the testing realm saw a buff to survival hunters again. If you're wanting to get more acquainted with the upcoming changes to the Maw in 9.1, we've got you covered here.
