WoW Shadowlands World Bosses: Rotation Schedule, Locations And Loot

Much like every expansion, Shadowlands comes with its own list of world bosses that rotate on a weekly schedule. Here are their locations and what unique loot they can drop.

There are four world bosses and each is located on each island on the Shadowlands.

Here is the rotation of World bosses in the Shadowlands:

  • December 21st - Nurgash Muchformed (Revendreth)
  • December 28th - Valinor, The Light of Eons (Bastion)
  • January 4th - Mortanis (Maldraxxus)
  • January 11th - Oranomonos the Everbranching (Ardenweald)

After a full rotation, the list will reset given no changes to the world boss system.

Players can defeat a world boss once per week and will receive the world quest reward (250 anima) and a chance at loot from the respective boss.

One of the popular reasons players take on a world boss is that they may hold Legendary powers for a class. These powers drop 100% of the time once the player has unlocked the ability to craft legendaries.

If a player is behind on renown level, a world boss has a high chance to award additional renown also.

Players can find a world boss's location as a world quest icon on their map on the zone the current week's world boss is active in.
