When Will We Hear More About Patch 9.1?

Recommended Posts

54261-the-jailer-might-not-be-the-final-

Shadowlands launched 47 days ago, and the attention turns to the first content patch of the expansion that comes with flying! When will Patch 9.1 hit test servers?

Blizzard is probably saving the Patch 9.1 announcement for BlizzConline on February 19-20, which is still more than a month away. If that's the case, 9.1 will be released rather late.

Battle for Azeroth went live on August 14, 2018. Tides of Vengeance, the first content patch (8.1) of the expansion, hit Public Test Servers on September 21, 2018, which is just 38 days after the expansion was released.

We do not currently know much about the patch. The only thing we know right now is that Blizzard intends to add flying in the first major content patch of the expansion, instead of .2 patches, as they did before.

What do you think we'll see in Patch 9.1? Do you think it will be unveiled at BlizzConline?

i hope they will wait with releasing 9.1. it feels like every day a new bug appears in shadowlands or old content which doesnt scale properly or has other problems caused by the squish. they should take their time and fix those things before thinking of releasing 9.1. and then they should take their time to test 9.1

for what it is worth, I agree 110% with ya.  Of course, my agreement with you and $50 will get you a cup of coffee, pretty much any place in the world.  I don't even have SL, but the amount of old world that I am seeing that has become buggy is horrible.  And things have changed, but no notice of the quests changing has been posted.

 

One item I would like to see address is remove some of the spell buttons!  I have more spell buttons for a BM hunter than I have places on my action bars.

Shoot, the last 2 wings of LFR aren't even open yet! Too early to start talking about expansions. Let the casuals catch up with the game first.

What ARE the requirements for flying(if any)?

At least with flying tied to pathfinder achievements I had a goal to work towards.

Likely they are holding any info for their event in February. Anyway they still have a lot of bugs to fix, so hopefully any new content will not be rushed.

No idea on the exact requirement but it will be tied to your Renown not reputation as in other expansions.

My guess would be mid to end of march 2021 at best. With BlizzConline and the final LFR Chapter being somewhere in feburary I cannot see them releasing new content that early. A lot of people are still working on AOTC and Cutting Edge as well.

LFR isn't completly released yet and there still alot of guilds for the hall of fame which has to be full in order to open mythic for crossrealm raiding

so i guess it'll take awhile and if we take into account that there are still bugs especially with torghast i think its a good thing if they slow down the pace and take their time to get things right

so far SL is alot better state then BFA was and i don't want them to rush things tbh.
i share the guess that they will announce the patch and what's to come in feb at the online blizzcon and so far its not that there is nothing to do for ppl at least atm.

It's about the PTR and announcement of what to come, not the actual content. Once it gets announced it'll take a couple of months before the content is actually released. Mid to end March would be waaaaaaay too late for the announcement, they definitely didn't wait that long with the last expansions.

I feel that a culture ( or Cultures as the case may be) would have eliminated the labyrinthian layouts of their zones ages ago. Blizz goes deliberately out of their way to make us relive Theseus with every expansion. They say they want up to explore. Fine. I love to explore. I disagree with having to run around 5 mountains to get onto the other side of the first one. This is not exploration, that is cultural infrastructural stagnation. If you want to decrease reliance on flight, allow us to chart our own flight points so we don't have to go through 2-5 unnecessary flight points to again, get to the other side of the mountain.

And for those who are certainly eager to start flaming about flight ruining the game. You play your way, I play mine. I like flight. I am tired of zones being obstructionist for it's own sake rather then just allowing flight.  That was the ONLY good thing about Cataclysm. Those who disagree, I welcome you to walk wherever you want.

Dude, relax or you will give yourself a stroke.... I agree pretty much with what you are saying except, what do you mean by "cultural infrastructural"?  Garden Gnomes would like to know!  😁

They just added a bunch of abilities back for every class in this expansion after having trimmed back the spell book for the past two expansions. Do a search on "the unpruning".

      The boost sale communities have taken it up a notch, as basically taking over Trade Chat and Group Finder (despite the latter being against ToS) wasn't enough, and they're resorting to some very low-tech ways.
      Unfortunately this isn't one of the actually funny corpses spelling out a site name stories, but a really annoying one, as players have been receiving in-game spam mail!

      Source.
      This has been going on for quite a while, but we thought we'd highlight it, especially since the above is an actual real-money operation and not one of the more frequent gold-based ones. Aside from the very concept being borderline insane (who in their right mind would go to an outside site based on getting in-game spam mail?), it's also pretty damn annoying. Apparently being constantly inundated by advertising spam in basically every channel on Azeroth and having to sift through dozens of ads in the group finder wasn't enough, and now we need to hire goblins and gnomes to create a physical spam filter on our mailboxes! Suffice it to say that even before this became a thing the ads were getting out of hand and most players are very much fed up with them, so this really is the cherry on top of a really bad sundae.
      Have you received one of these in the past?

      If you use your Hearthstone while lying down, your character will also arrive lying down where you've set your Hearthstone.
      This one's a little ridiculous. A while back, we posted an article on how to hearth efficiently in WoW and learned that you should face in the direction you want to move after hearthing when setting your Hearthstone because most of us do so facing the innkeeper.
      It turns out you can use the Hearthstone while lying down, and the funny part is that you will also arrive lying down at the inn!
      Kudos to flyingbookworm for the screenshot.

      The "elevator boss" running gag got a lot more serious in Revendreth, at least with War Mode on, as there have been some existential fights happening over there for a while now. There's also a lot of mystery surrounding how they actually work, as the "mechanism" that seems to power them might just be a cover.
      Pavle decided to take possession of one of Revendreth's elevators and charge a fee to use it, the fee being your life.
      That poor, poor paladin! This isn't anything new, of, course, as players have been using the elevators for some damn good PvP since launch!
      But it's not just the players and their PvP antics that are troublesome, as the elevators themselves, like all of Revendreth, just don't seem quite... right.
      Meanwhile the LITERAL elevator boss is probably just standing there shaking his head at all the carnage and malfunctions:

      We have another intrepid traveler deciding to boycott the flight masters and make their own way across the Shadowlands!
      We already know all the Shadowlands realms are actually on 1 connected map, and we've even seen low level characters glide into the Maw from Ardenweald, but that was a strictly downward trajectory! This time we're going up, to the very top of Oribos, and we're using fairy dust to do it! Hezerd went VERY far up in the weald and then proceeded to Demon Hunter glide/Fel Rush/goblin glide over into the Arbiter's room in Oribos!

      It's possible to grab all Torghast Legendary Power recipes from Twisting Corridors, and there's no need to wait for the individual wings to become available each week.
      If you run Twisting Corridors, you will randomly get 1 out of the 6 Torghast wings, so if you queue up for Layer 3+ and zone into the wing you need, all you need to complete is the first 6 floors to get the Legendary Power you want.
      If you do not get the wing where the desired Legendary Power drops the first time, you can zone in and out until you get the one you need.
      Example
      As a Frost Mage, I want Slick Ice, which drops in Mort'regar, so I zone in and out of Twisting Corridors until I receive Mort'regar and finish the first 6 floors to get the Legendary Power recipe.
      We are listing all Legendary Powers that come from Torghast's 6 wings below. You can find more details about crafting Legendary items in our Runecarving guide.
