New Raid and Season 3

As with any new major patch, there is a new raid, the Sepulcher of the First Ones, which will feature 11 bosses, including some familiar faces.

Mal'ganis was spotted in the developer preview, which should tell an interesting story because of his connection with turning Arthas into the Lich King, and he is likely doing the same with Anduin.

Anduin has been confirmed to be the 8th boss of the raid, which will be the final boss of week 1.

The final 3 bosses, which end with an encounter with the Jailer, will not be active until the following week when Mythic opens, which could lead to some pretty interesting story developments and set up for the end of Shadowlands and the next expansion.

Players can expect a new PvP and Mythic+ Season with all-new rewards and gearing systems.

Cypher of the First Ones

One of the new mechanics coming to Zereth Mortis is a new take on daily quests and reputation farming.

Upon entering Zereth Mortis, players will not be able to understand the musical language of the Automa, and thus will team up with a friendly NPC as they unlock this new language, which comes with bonus activities, daily quests, events, rewards, and the replacement to the Renown System (yes no more 40 levels to grind.

Release Date?

There was no information that lead to a release date during the developer update, not even a PTR release.

The PTR was updated a week before the preview with an encrypted build, which means the following weeks should see it release for players to get their hands on.

Update - PTR is expected to go live after Blizzard takes the week off during Thanksgiving, meaning from the 30th of November onwards we can expect the PTR.

A realistic date should put patch 9.2 Eternity's End at a release date around February or March which gives patch 9.1.5 3-4 months of playtime, which is average for a minor patch.
