World of Warcraft Shadowlands has finally received a release date for the first patch of the expansion, where players will venture into the Sanctum of Domination and take on Sylvanas Windrunner herself.
While the patch launches on June 29th as a whole, raid releases are often slightly delayed to limit the power progression of players.
Shadowlands Patch 9.1 Sanctum Of Domination Raid Release Schedule
Normal and Heroic:
Normal and Heroic difficulty will unlock on July 6, one week after the release of Chains of Domination.
The Mythic version of the raid will be available the following week on July 13th.
Wing 1: July 13th (The Tarragrue, The Eye of the Jailer, and The Nine)
Wing 2: July 27th (Soulrender Dormazain, Remnant of Ner'zhul, and Painsmith Raznal)
Wing 3: August 10th (Guardian of the First Ones, Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, and Kel'Thuzad)
Wing 4: August 24th (Sylvanas Windrunner)
Season 2 of Mythic+ and PvP will officially begin on the week of July 6th, although we will likely see gear from these activities have a limited item level to stop people from farming higher level gear before the raid release.
While we still don't know how the Sanctum of Domination will end after we "defeat" Sylvanas, we do know it will have severe consequences going forward for the remainder of the expansion.
With a delayed BlizzCon, again this year we are uncertain as to when more information will come regarding the future of the Shadowlands.
