World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' 9.1.5 Update is now on the horizon, leaving fans of the MMORPG who want to freely swap Covenants and not have to worry about Conduit Energy wondering when its release date might occur.
The WoW 9.1.5 Update will focus more on systems changes rather than introducing lots of new content, addressing certain woes that players have had since launch. While this won't do much to fix the slower pace of content we've seen this expansion, its release date should make the MMORPG more fun to play.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' 9.1.5 Update was slated to go live on the PTR (public test realm) during the week of August 30. That was when players got the first chance to try out its changes, including the ability to turn in Anima in Korthia and various balance tweaks, alongside the newly-added Legion timewalking dungeons.
PTR cycles usually last between 2.5 and 3 months, so we initially expected WoW 9.1.5's release date to occur between November 9/10 and November 23/24. New updates usually go live with the weekly reset, which happens on Tuesday/Wednesday, depending if you're playing on US or EU servers.
Blizzard later confirmed that the patch would launch on November 2/3.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has had bigger gaps between content releases than previous expansions, the ongoing pandemic and Blizzard's internal issues likely playing into this, but with update 9.1.5's release date now announced, we're keeping our fingers crossed that things will get closer to being back on track. Check out the full list of changes in its rather lengthy patch notes.
