Get ready for Eternity’s End: World of Warcraft Shadowlands patch 9.2 release date is February 22
The World of Warcraft Shadowlands patch 9.2 hype train started rolling on November 5th when news an encrypted 9.2 build was placed on Blizzard’s vendor content delivery network (CDN). Typically when a build lands on the CDN it means the next PTR testing cycle has moved from “Soon™” to soon, with the new PTR frequently launching within a week. On November 10th, the official Twitter account posted some enigmatic runes, which was followed immediately by news that there would be a patch 9.2 developer video shown on the 11th. The arrival and datamining of patch 9.2 began exactly a week later, and continued through the new year, along with plenty of speculation on when patch 9.2 would go live.
And the patch is coming sooner than we anticipated, with a release date on February 22, 2022.
We’re off to stop the Jailer (finally)
Patch 9.2 will send us off to Zereth Mortis, where we will finally defeat the Jailer in the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid. Everybody’s gear will be getting a boost to help them in the fight: we’re getting brand new tier sets (which can be obtained without doing any raiding), a new rank for Legendary gear, and the ability to equip a second Legendary. And while we don’t know the whole story yet, the lore of patch 9.2 could completely reshape Azeroth.
So get ready to head into patch 9.2 and Zereth Mortis — there are only two weeks to wait!
