This week's Patch 9.0.5 Build 37774 was marked as Release Candidate, but when will the patch hit live servers?
Something really important to keep in mind when determining the release date of Patch 9.0.5 is the maximum Renown cap that we will reach next week.
Shadowlands Release Week: Renown level 3; Week of December 1: Renown level 6; Week of December 8: Renown level 9; Week of December 15: Renown level 12; Week of December 22: Renown level 15; Week of December 29: Renown level 18; Week of January 5: Renown level 21; Week of January 12: Renown level 24; Week of January 19: Renown level 26; Week of January 26: Renown level 28; Week of February 2: Renown level 30; Week of February 9: Renown level 32; Week of February 16: Renown level 34; Week of February 23: Renown level 36; Week of March 2: Renown level 38; Week of March 9: Renown level 40. Although there are no new Renown levels in Patch 9.0.5, there are a few changes coming to the weekly Renown quests! If you reach Renown 40, the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima will give you 1,500 Gold instead of Renown.
On top of that, if your character recruits the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will give you 500 Anima.
Once players reach 40 Renown with their Covenant, the weekly quest to gather 1000 Anima will now award you with 1500 gold. Once players have recruited the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will now award you with 500 Anima. Both changes have been outlined in the preliminary 9.0.5 patch notes, which is why we think the patch will release one week after we hit maximum Renown, and that's March 16 for the US region and March 17 for the EU.
Players who reach 40 Renown will receive 1,500 Gold from the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima in Patch 9.0.5.
If you've recruited the maximum amount of Souls for your Covenant, your weekly Renown quests to rescue souls from the Maw will reward 500 Anima.
Once players reach 40 Renown with their Covenant, the weekly quest to gather 1000 Anima will now award you with 1500 gold. Once players have recruited the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will now award you with 500 Anima.
The Peak of Serenity Discord spotted two undocumented Windwalker Monk changes that will likely result in a DPS loss for the spec in Patch 9.0.5.
Mark of the Crane stacks no longer persist through death and are lost when the target dies, meaning Spinning Crane Kick will deal less damage in Patch 9.0.5. When the Monk cancels Fists of Fury to cast other spells during Storm, Earth, and Fire, the spirits will no longer mimic the Monk's other abilities while also channeling Fists of Fury but will cancel casting Fists of Fury to mimic other spells. You can find the rest of the class changes coming in 9.0.5 below.

Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
How the Data is Calculated
To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio
We finally have 100 Alliance guilds that have taken down Sire Denathrius and cleared Castle Nathria on Mythic difficulty, which means cross-realm Mythic is on its way!
The final kill occurred around 5:30 CET today, and since the cross-realm feature arrives on the next reset after the 100th kill it might be available to EU players today (this is the very same timing as the Ny'alotha 100th Alliance kill and it was available the same day in EU then, but there were some server issues around that time so we're not 100% sure), while US/OC players might have to wait until their next Tuesday reset. The Hall of Fame: Sire Denathrius (Alliance) achievement and Famed Slayer of Denatrius titles should still be available until the next reset (again, most likely only of US/OC players, given the timing).
Proud Manlets was the final guild to claim one of the Hall of Fame spots on the Alliance side, and it's taken 29 days for the blue team to catch up to the red.
You can check out the full Hall of Fame here.
Thanks to NageK for spotting the final kill!
