Review of new WoW Shadowlands 9.2 patch "Eternity's End"
Not so long ago, the first features of the latest add-on in the Shadowlands series revealed. Patch 9.2 is the final stage in the battle for the Shadowlands and Azeroth, and players finally come face to face with the Jailer. The developers have prepared many changes, from adding a system of set items to learning the language of the ancients.
Opinions on WoW Shadowlands 9.2 vary. Some are confident that the game will become much more interesting and diverse, others are afraid that the fate of the infamous Warlords of Draenor is repeated, where at the end of the patch players were dying of boredom. It is because Shadowlands 9.2 may become one of the longest addons in terms of time. But, as they say, let's play and find out.
New Location and faction WoW Shadowlands 9.2
As with any patch, World of Warcraft 9.2 Eternity’s End is no exception — the developers added a location called Zereth Mortis. It is a kind of laboratory, where the after worlds created. World of Warcraft 9.2 location is not like any other one that has ever been created before.
The location is simply impossible without the addition of a faction. In this case, gamers introduced to The Enlightened — brokers who have given up material goods in favor of knowledge. While typical members of the species are greedy and profit-seeking, the Enlightened have dedicated themselves to protecting and exploring the world of Zereth Mortis. Like any faction in World of Warcraft Shadowlands, the Enlightened reward the most tenacious heroes with items of equipment, cosmetic effects & mounts.
In the WoW Shadowlands 9.2 Eternity’s End update, the usual Renown system will become almost irrelevant. Along with the now-familiar covenant-leveling reputation class, players offered a new reputation system. It is called the Language of The Progenitors, and its main point — any way to unravel the language of the creators of the afterlife — Automa. The better a hero understands their language, the cooler things become available.
New Raid 9.2 and Armor Sets WoW Shadowlands Eternity’s End
One of the major and anticipated innovations of patch 9.2 is the Sepulcher of The First One's raid. Players finally get to discover what fate awaits the King of Stormwind and Lady Sylvanas. The final boss of the raid is Zovaal — which means, it is, the story of WoW Shadowlands ends here. Interestingly, the raid opens gradually — something never seen. The first week of WoW Shadowlands 9.2 Eternity's End, the Tomb of the Eternal will be closed. In the second week, the normal and heroic modes will be available, but only until the 8th boss — Anduin Wrynn. And only in the third week open all 3 difficulties and the remaining 3 bosses, the last of which — The Jailer.
An important change to World of Warcraft 9.2 Eternity’s End is the return of armor sets. Notably, the developer has promised the ability to obtain set kits not only from the raid but also in PvP mode and when passing the mythical keys. How this will be implemented is still unknown, but we're sure Blizzard will find a way. The armor comes in 4 colors, each corresponding to the difficulty of the raid, and the last variant animated. The nice thing is that bonuses given by 2 and 4 elements, and it's the key specialization abilities that can be strengthened.
New PvP Rated Season 3 and Solo Shuffle mode
First things first. Many PvP players have been asking the developer for a dozen years to add a special mode where heroes fight one-on-one. Blizzard heard the requests and made a ranked mode, where 6 random players join. Then there are three-on-three battles in all possible combinations, which results in a table of results. The highest-scoring player wins.
Mode is available in the Solo Shuffle mode — so Blizzard wants to test it in real-time to see if the game sticks with this format. In any case, the innovation of the World of Warcraft 9.2 Eternity’s End patch promises to be interesting and fun regarding gameplay.
ExpCarry experts' opinion on this mode in World of Warcraft 9.2 Eternity's End is ambiguous. On the one hand, it looks really unusual, and the novelty in PvP was not for a few years. On the other hand, there are all the same disadvantages as before different levels of equipment, the unequal composition of teams, the skills of the players. And if Blizzard takes care of that — that would be just fine.
Speaking of the PvP itself, there are no major changes. All the same battles in ranked arenas and battlegrounds, mining PvP currencies, ranks & more. There are achievements for battles in the open world, the list of rewards will be updated, and the race for leaderboard positions starts from scratch.
New Season of Mythic+ Season 3 in WoW Shadowlands 9.2
Fans of spending dozens of hours in dungeons spared from the update, either. The third season of WoW Shadowlands mythic+ keys is just around the corner. Affixes, new walkthroughs, new metaclasses & old items, but much more powerful.
Another new thing is that Tazavesh will finally become available as a mythic+ key, with the giant dungeon divided into 2 parts, as it was with Mechagon. Players have to master a huge number of new mechanics and passing tactics.

General changes WoW Shadowlands 9.2 Eternity’s End
In addition to the standard PvP and PvE additions to the game modes, the developer has taken care of a number of «general» innovations in WoW 9.2 Eternity’s End. New Battle Pets and Mounts will be added to the game, with models to match the new location. Snails, frogs & more are waiting for the players.
Gamers will also be able to carry two legendary items at once. There will be a restriction: one of the equipped legendary items World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.2 Eternity’s End must be from the covenant. This diversifies the gameplay a bit and «revives» dozens of items that have not been used before.
At the same time, there are changes to the professions, which has not been the case for a very, very long time. Perhaps, the system of profession leveling and crafting be redesigned, which makes the process more exciting and «useful».
Changes in the WoW Shadowlands 9.2 patch also affect mediums and conduits. As before, Blizzard enhances the least popular options to varying degrees. No reliable data is available yet, but our analysts are confident that some class rotations change dramatically.
