Shadowlands Season 2 includes an all-new affix—Tormented—for Mythic Keystone Dungeons, new PvP Honor Talents, the new Sanctum of Domination raid, and more.


SANCTUM OF DOMINATION

Sanctum of Domination

For eons the Jailer was bound within The Maw. Now, his endless armies gather as he prepares to enact the final stage of his grand design. In the face of annihilation, Bolvar marshals his last remaining allies to charge into the heart of Torghast and confront the Jailer where he is most powerful.

Read about the bosses, rewards, and release schedule in our comprehensive Sanctum of Domination Preview.

TAZAVESH, THE VEILED MARKET

Tazavesh, the Veiled Market

Gather your party and discover exotic wares and strange creatures in the new eight-boss Mythic difficulty mega-dungeon; Tazavesh: the Veiled Market. Set in a bazaar of the mysterious brokers, you’ll face off against dastardly assassins, four-armed broker guards, an infinite pirate dragon, and other enemies as you chase down a wayward broker before she can unleash the might of a stolen artifact to realize her own designs.

Read about the bosses, rewards, and how to access this new mega-dungeon in our comprehensive Tazavesh, the Veiled Market Preview.

Mythic Keystone Dungeons Season 2

Tormented Affix

The new Mythic Keystone dungeon season is now available with opportunities for new rewards and the second seasonal affix for Shadowlands: Tormented. When this affix is active, servants of the Jailer can be found throughout the dungeon and grant powerful boons when defeated. If a servant is not dealt with, they empower the final boss.

Mythic+ Dungeon Rating

Mythic+ Rating System UI

With the content update players can take charge of their own progress and see how well they’re performing in Mythic+ dungeons by viewing their personal Mythic+ rating within the Group Finder(I) UI under the Mythic+ Dungeons tab. Your Rating increases each time you run a dungeon you haven’t completed before or when you beat your own best time in a dungeon you have already completed. Completing a keystone provides a rating based on three factors—the level of the keystone, the Affixes in the keystone, and the run’s time compared to the dungeon’s timer. With each Season, Mythic+ ratings are reset in the display.

Learn more about the Mythic+ Dungeon Rating system and check out the Mythic Keystone Dungeon Leaderboards to see who’s staying on top of the clock.

Keystone Services

Ta'hsup

When you complete a Mythic+ dungeon within the timer, the broker Ta’hsup will appear and offer to exchange your current keystone for another instance at random. You can use this service once per run for a keystone that is at or lower than the level of the dungeon completed, if it was not the one used for the current instance.

You can also find Ta’hsup in Oribos by the Great Vault, where he can provide you with a keystone if you don’t have one, or reduce the level of your current keystone if you so desire.

Affix Tuning

Mythic+ dungeon adventurers returning for Season 2 will notice that the affix rotation has been shuffled and there have been tuning adjustments.

You can read more about the tuning changes in our Content Update Notes.

Mythic+ Rewards

Mythic+ Rewards

Dedicated players who attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2000 during Shadowlands Season Two will earn the Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season Two achievement and the Soultwisted Deathwalker mount..

Hero's Path reward

Competitive players who complete a dungeon at Mythic Level 20 or higher within the time limit will be able to teleport to the beginning of the cleared instance. The item level of equipment rewarded from Mythic+ dungeons have been increased by 26 as have rewards from the Great Vault.


PvP Season 2

Participating in PvP activities will reward you with Honor and Conquest currencies to purchase battle-ready, epic-quality gear. PvP gear will now scale to a higher item level when the character wearing them enters PvP combat and activities.

Updated Honor Talents

This season, you’ll enter the fray with an assortment of new and adjusted Honor Talents to choose from. You can see which Honor Talents have been added or changed in the Chains of Domination Content Update Notes.

PvP Rewards

Season 2 PvP Rewards

Season 2 comes with a full suite of updated PvP rewards.

Unchained Gladiator’s Soul Eater (mount): Earn the Gladiator title this season.
Vicious War Gorm (mount): Win Rated PvP matches while at Combatant or higher.

And the new world boss is bugged: Doesn't drop anima, nor give credit for the kill.  People have killed it multiple times, same result.

      The Winds of Wisdom buff that increases Experience gains by 50% will return on October 4, making it an ideal time to level a new character for Dragonflight. The buff will be removed when Evokers become available for play.
      Currently, the rumored launch date of the pre-patch is October 25.
      (Source)
      If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!
      Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available.
      * Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.

      Dragonflight Season 1 goes live starting the week of December 12, bringing a new raid, an updated rotation of challenging Mythic+ dungeons, and a new PvP Season. Mark your calendars for the road ahead and get ready to take on all new challenges.
      New Raid: Vault of the Incarnates
      Unravel the mysteries of the Vault of the Incarnates Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid players will experience in Dragonflight, featuring eight all-new boss encounters.
      The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence. The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood.
      Raid Release Schedule:
      Week of December 12: Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open with the weekly maintenance for each region Week of December 19: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 1 opens Week of January 2: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 2 opens Week of January 16: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 3 opens Cross-Faction Mythic and Hall of Fame Eligibility
      Cross-faction Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will be available from the start. Hall of Fame entries will require at least 16 out of 20 raiders to be from the same guild and faction to be eligible for rewards.  See this support article for more information.
      New Dungeon Rotation
      Dragonflight Season 1 will feature a new dungeon rotation for Mythic+. Four dungeons from Dragonflight are included, and four returning dungeons from previous expansions. Here’s the full lineup:
      Ruby Life Pools The Nokhud Offensive The Azure Vault Algeth’ar Academy Halls of Valor (from the Legion™ expansion) Court of Stars (from the Legion™ expansion) Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (from the Warlords of Draenor™ expansion) Temple of the Jade Serpent (from the Mists of Pandaria™ expansion) Court of Stars, one of the dungeons returning in Dragonflight Season 1 M+ and PvP Season 1 will also begin the week of December 12 with regional maintenance.

      We finally have a firm date for WoW's next expansion release, as Dragonflight is coming on November 28th!
      (Source)
      Gather your friends and allies and make ready to soar into new adventures when the World of Warcraft: Dragonflight expansion goes live on November 28.
      The ancestral home of dragonkind—the Dragon Isles are awakening, and many long-forgotten secrets are waiting to be uncovered. Heed the call of the dragons as their ancient homelands are revealed once more, beckoning adventurers and treasure seekers alike to unravel the many mysteries waiting for them.
      Discover the Dragon Isles
      Discover the Dragon Isles and explore four new zones—the Waking Shores, roiling with elemental power; the vast expanse of the Ohn’ahran Plains; the frosty peaks of the Azure Span; and the majestic spires and temples of Thaldraszus—each themed around and revealing more about the ancient dragon aspects.
      Meet the Dracthyr Evoker
      Players will menace their foes (or empower their allies) as the new dracthyr Evoker, World of Warcraft’s first-ever race and class combination. Able to switch between a humanoid visage and a fearsome draconic form, the dracthyr are highly mobile, and their unique Evoker class can specialize in ranged damage-dealing or in aiding their allies as a healer by harnessing the mystical gifts of dragonkind.  They’ll awake from their slumber in the Forbidden Reach, where they’ll take up their training to join the forces of dragonkind in the defense of the isles.
      Ascend to New Heights
      Dragonflight introduces Dragonriding, an all-new skill-based method of aerial movement that allows players to take to the skies on the back of their personal Dragon Isles Drake. Players will customize their drake as they progress through the expansion, collecting more appearance options and enabling them to fly farther and faster.
      New Talent System
      Dragonflight contains major updates to World of Warcraft classes, centering on the re-introduction of talent trees. The new talent system empowers players to make creative and meaningful talent choices without compromising their effectiveness—and most importantly, it gives them meaningful options at every level.
      Updated Professions
        Express yourself with the updated profession system with new features and tools to fuel the ambitions of crafters of any skill level.

      Dragonflight does not include Threads of Fate, but we've got some details on how alt leveling works in the new expansion.
      Leveling Your Main Character
      Leveling up the first character is linear, and you must complete the zones in the following order:
      The Waking Shores > Ohn'ahran Plains > The Azure Span > Thaldraszus.
      Leveling Your Alts
      When you complete the Dragonflight campaign on your main character, you can pick any of the four Dragon Isles zones for leveling and you will have World Quests and Side Quests unlocked on your alts.
      Thanks to MrGM for the screenshots.
