WoW Patch 9.1.5: Everything about the improvements, innovations and release

Patch 9.1.5 for World of Warcraft brings a lot that players want. We have all the content and innovations here for you.

The content of Patch 9.1 has meanwhile been exhausted for many World of Warcraft players and they are eagerly looking at Update 9.1.5. After all, this should bring many improvements and implement the wishes of the community in order to make the stay in the Shadowlands more pleasant. We’ll tell you everything that’s known about Patch 9.1.5 so far.

New content in patch 9.1.5. Even if there are no particularly large content updates such as new raids, dungeons or areas, there are a few innovations in the form of fresh or rewarmed content that should keep players happy.

Timewalking: Legion: Particularly noteworthy here is the Timewalking: Legion, which will run for the first time for 2 weeks and then fit into the usual rhythm. What is special this time is that the dungeons are also available in their “Mythic +” variant and there is really good equipment there that you can upgrade with bravery points. The following dungeons return with Timewalking:

  • Black Rook Hold
  • Eye of Azshara
  • Darkheart Thicket
  • Vault of the Wardens
  • Neltharion’s Lair
  • Court of Stars

In the “Mythic +” timewalking, these dungeons all have their own affixes, separate from the rest of the “Mythic +” system.

New Character Customizations: A few races can look forward to new options for how their characters can look. Nightborne, Lightforged draenei and Void elves in particular get additional cosmetic options that you can select from your trusted barber in the future. These are ears of different lengths, new hair colors for void elves, different tail lengths for draenei and new tattoos for the nightborn.

New figures for Druids and Nightfae: Followers of the Night Fae Covenant can be particularly happy because they get even more soul figures to choose from. There are also “small animal figures” such as squirrels and corgis. But they can only be used in quiet areas. Druids should also get new travel forms, but details are still missing.

Improvements in patch 9.1.5

Apart from these major improvements and innovations, there are also a lot of little things and adjustments that are not that big and probably only interest a fraction of the players. But due to the abundance there is probably something for every player.

Shadowlands improvements

  • Pacts can be freely exchanged from a certain fame level – without any disadvantages. So every character can earn the cosmetic items of every pact and swap all pact abilities at will.
  • Redeemed souls can now be farmed much more efficiently as the weekly limit has been removed.
  • Heirlooms can be further upgraded and can also be worn in Shadowlands.
  • Media energy (“Conduit Energy”) will be abolished.
  • The Covenant campaign can be skipped if a character on the account has already completed this campaign.
  • The AoE cap will be removed and over 40 skills will be adjusted accordingly.
  • The Maw intro can be skipped.
  • Characters can level in Torghast in the future.
  • Legendary items can be “recycled” to get the resources back.
  • Improvements to old content
There are also adjustments for actually outdated content, which is still often visited, for example to collect transmog or mounts. These include:
  • Island expeditions can now also be started solo. This means that all of the rewards are farmable for solo players and you no longer have to rely on a whole group.
  • Warfronts can now be started when at least 5 players team up. It is no longer necessary to have at least 15 players.
  • Players only need to complete the “Storming the Tomb” achievement once per account to unlock the class mounts. The rest of the quests still need to be completed.
  • Legacy raids will be adjusted so that they are easier to tackle for solo players.

When will patch 9.1.5 be released? There is no specific release date for the patch yet. The update is first tested on the PTR and, depending on the feedback and status, it can then take a few weeks or even months before the patch goes live. Currently, however, realistic estimates assume a release in mid-October 2021.
