The new World of Warcraft: Shadowlands sale sees each edition 20% off as players wait for the Chains of Domination update later this year.
The three editions of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands are now available for 20% off. The eighth major expansion of the massively multiplayer game, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands was released in November, and with that discount it now ranges from $ 31.99 to $ 63.99.
This sale takes place as World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is preparing for its first major update, patch 9.1 or Domination chains. Currently on the public test domain (PTR), Domination chains has been in testing since April and has undergone some fixes. Its full release remains undated at this time, but players can expect a new area, 10 boss raid (known as Sanctum of Domination), as well as a new eight boss Megadungeon.
This sale for Shadowlands is available on Battle.net and lists all three versions of the expansion with their respective discounted prices. The base edition only has the Wandering Ancient Mount in addition to the expansion, but offers the lowest price at $ 31.99. The Heroic Edition now costs $ 47.99 as opposed to its regular price of $ 59.99 and features a character bonus, a flying mount, and the Clothing of the Eternal Traveler transmogrification set quest. The more expensive of the three, the Epic Edition, now sits at $ 63.99 and offers what the other two have plus a number of additional perks.
This sale comes between major content drops for World of warcraft players. the Domination chains the update is set to be the first for Shadowlands but this expansion has already been underway for several months. It seems likely this is a sale meant to keep players interested in the expansion while the update continues to undergo fixes on the PTR. It is possible, however, that the time spent on the PTR is going well and this sale is supposed to generate interest in Shadowlands before the update was officially dropped.
A sale is always appreciated but the lack of news on a timeline for the Domination chains the release, other than what’s in it, begins to frustrate players. Judging by the April 29 patch notes for Domination chains it seems more likely that there is still a lot of work to be done. In those ratings, there are big damage increases that players suggested, meaning the developer was far from their original specs.
Big changes could mean significant progress, however. There have been a few weeks of updates to the PTR and it is possible, however small, that the workload has been less than what the developer originally thought. But, regardless of the time of the update, interested players can grab the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands extension for 20% off, regardless of the edition.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is available on PC.
