The Shadowlands expansion contains a total of six world bosses that you can defeat for loot. The following guide shows you where to find them and the loot you can get.


Empowered World Bosses in Shadowlands Season 4

In Shadowlands Season 4 world bosses are tied to Fated Raids and drop better loot (Item Level 285) depending on which raid is currently Fated.


World Boss Antros (Patch 9.2)

Antros is the sixth world boss that was added to Zereth Mortis in Patch 9.2. We have a dedicated page for the world boss linked below.


World Boss Mor'geth, Tormentor of the Damned (Patch 9.1)

Mor'geth is the fifth world boss that was added in Patch 9.1 to Korthia. You will learn more about Mor'geth, Tormentor of the Damned, on a separate page.


Old Shadowlands World Bosses (Patch 9.0.2)

Four world bosses have been added in Patch 9.0.2. We refer to them as "old" because they were available when Shadowlands launched and two new bosses have been added since. The old world bosses rotate on a weekly schedule, meaning a different boss is available each week.

You do not need to be in a raid group to receive loot from the world bosses.


Old World Boss Rotation in Shadowlands

The four world bosses are on a fixed rotation, unlike the newer world bosses added in Patch 9.1 and Patch 9.2.

  • Mortanis;
  • Oranomonos;
  • Nurgash;
  • Valinor;

Old World Boss Locations

Each of the Shadowlands zones except for The Maw contains 1 world boss.


Old World Boss Loot

World bosses drop loot on par with Normal difficulty Castle Nathria, meaning Item Level 207. They also drop Legendary Power recipes and many Conduits that we do not list to not clutter this hub. You can find out more information about the specific powers and Conduits in our guides.


More Information About Old Shadowlands World Bosses

The world bosses in Shadowlands are Valinor, the Light of Eons, Mortanis, Oranomonos the Everbranching, and Nurgash Muckformed.


Valinor, the Light of Eons

Valinor is located in Bastion.

Built by the Kyrians as a means of testing their hardened warriors, Valinor is a centurion of great power. Taken by the forsworn and infected with the seed of doubt, Valinor now sees all foes as challengers.


Loot Tables



Mortanis can be found in Maldraxxus.

One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.


Loot Tables


Oranomonos the Everbranching

You will find Oranomonos in Ardenweald.

Once the eldest guardian of Tirna Scithe, Oranomonos has wilted alongside the great tree. With very little anima left, she can no longer discern friend from foe, as the gorm gorge themselves on her decaying form.


Loot Tables


Nurgash Muckformed

Nurgash can be found in in Revendreth.

Formed from the sludgy mass of many dripping dredgers, and empowered with dark magics by Denathrius's most elite sorcerers, Nurgash is not the most intelligent minion, but his fists can crush castles.
