World Bosses in Shadowlands

Last updated on Jul 20, 2021 at 13:22 by Stan 4 comments

Four world bosses are available in the Shadowlands expansion. In this guide, you will learn who they are and what loot they drop.


Patch 9.1 Changes

A new world boss is coming in Patch 9.1, dropping better loot from the existing world bosses. You will learn more about Mor'geth, Tormentor of the Damned, on a separate page.



Four world bosses have been added in Patch 9.0.2. They rotate on a weekly schedule, meaning a different boss will be available each week.

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


World Boss Rotation

The full world boss rotation in Shadowlands for the coming months is as follows:

  • July 20: Mortanis;
  • July 27: Oranomonos;
  • August 3: Nurgash;
  • August 10: Valinor;
  • August 17: Mortanis;
  • August 24: Oranomonos;

World Boss Locations

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


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.


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.

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.
