Lots of spoilers below!

The traitorous Sire Denathrius has been defeated . . . but the power of the Maw still grows. In Chains of Domination™, the upcoming first major content update for World of Warcraft®: Shadowlands, players will delve into new depths of the Jailer’s hopeless domain, seeking to understand the true nature of his malignant plans. Backed by the renewed might of the four Covenants, the champions of the Horde and the Alliance will take the fight for the Shadowlands to the seat of the Jailer’s power. But the Banished One has a terrible new champion in his service—a cruel instrument of despair conscripted by Sylvanas Windrunner, capable of instilling dread into the hearts of Azeroth’s heroes like no creature of the Shadowlands.

  • Discover the Mysteries of Korthia - The Jailer is searching for the key to fulfill his twisted designs—and he has pulled a fragment of a long-lost domain into the Maw itself to find it. Seek answers in ancient Korthia, the City of Secrets, and engage in new quests and outdoor activities.
  • The Covenants Strike Back - With the strength of the kyrian, night fae, necrolords, and venthyr restored, embark on a campaign to unite the four covenants—and together, launch an assault against the Jailer in his home territory.
  • Raid the Sanctum of Domination - Brave treacherous, unexplored reaches of Torghast in a new 10-boss raid: the Sanctum of Domination. Encounter the true Eye of the Jailer, turn the tide against the Tarragrue, and come face-to-face with the Banshee Queen herself in a fateful confrontation.
  • New Mega-dungeon - Tazavesh, the Veiled Market—Gather your party and discover exotic wares and strange creatures in an eight-boss Mythic mega-dungeon set in a bazaar of the mysterious Brokers, and culminating in a high-stakes heist to steal powerful artifacts from Azeroth.
  • And More - Gear up for Shadowlands Raid, Dungeon, and PvP Season 2, with a seasonal Mythic Keystone dungeon affix themed around the Jailer’s power; don new Covenant cosmetic armor sets that any class can wear; expand the powers of your Soulbinds and Conduits; add new mounts and pets to your menagerie; Unlock flying in the Covenants’ four domains; and much more.

Journey through the Dark Portal once again in World of Warcraft®: Burning Crusade Classic™! Originally released in January 2007, The Burning Crusade summoned the heroes of Azeroth to the shattered and fel-scarred realm of Outland to stop an invasion of the demonic Burning Legion. In 2021, Blizzard Entertainment’s recreation of the first World of Warcraft expansion will give players from around the world a chance to return to Outland as it once was to relive an era of timeless adventure—or experience what awaits beyond the Dark Portal for the first time.

  • Rediscover the Broken World of Outland – Flee the fel reavers who roam Hellfire Peninsula, dive deep beneath the swamps of Zangarmarsh to confront what lurks below, and clash with the demonic agents of the Burning Legion in the shadow of the Black Temple.
  • Join the Fight as a Blood Elf or Draenei – The ranks of the Horde and the Alliance grow! Fight for the Horde as the blood elves, seeking a new source of the arcane power that once sustained them, or join the Alliance as the draenei, exiles from Outland in search of a new home.
  • The Saga Unfolds Over Time – Content from the original game will roll out in phases, at a cadence paced for the WoW Classic community. Prepare for the opening of the Black Temple, gear up to confront the gods of Zul’Aman, and gather your allies to face the fury of the Sunwell.
  • Burning Crusade Features Reborn – Prove your prowess in the Arena PvP system, enhance your gear with the Jewelcrafting profession, take to the skies over Outland on flying mounts, choose whether to seek the aid of the Aldor or the Scryers of Shattrath, and much more.
  • Choose Your Era – Prior to Burning Crusade Classic’s release, WoW Classic players can decide whether to advance each of their characters to the Burning Crusade era with the rest of their realm, or to continue playing the original WoW Classic content on new Classic Era servers.
  • Included With Existing World of Warcraft Subscriptions – As with WoW Classic, anyone who subscribes to World of Warcraft can also play Burning Crusade Classic at no additional cost, giving players the freedom to enjoy multiple eras of Azeroth at their own pace.

    If "the community" makes you not like the game, then you didn't really enjoy it to begin with.

    This is certainly the most plausible leak so far.

    Um... "plausible" isn't even a factor here. It's real - straight from the Blizzard Press site.

    Those covenant armors look extremely low effort, as in dungeon greens kind of low effort.

    Find people with same goals as you. And avoid servers that attract the most toxic of people i.e. pvp servers and streamer servers.
    And chances are you'll have a good time with good people.

    Well then, ain't that amazing story writing /s
    Not because you don't like it, makes it bad, I really like the story so far, it's fun and engaging. They are mixing fresh new stuff and I personally really like it. I didn't like the maw beore getting grapple hook, feels way better now

    What's the problem with this? No one can ever say strike back again?

    Fun fact: MMO-C started out as a World of Warcraft leaks site. Took some time before it became Bli$$ard's PR lapdog.

    Well, at least it looks like we go to Broker realm like I hoped. 8 boss mega dungeon is good too!

    Shadowlands stuff is about what I expected, really sucks that it doesn't add another zone. If anything with the raid being in the Maw we're gonna have to spend even more time over there...... oh boy.

    TBC: Classic though, thats the stuff alright. It puts the Classic+ idea to rest but I would've liked to see something like this to be a thing, then again I love TBC and I'm really looking forward to replay this again.

    Their story is extremely predictable for sure seeing how long we have pretty much known anduin will become the new lk. Well atleast hope they make a nice cinematic and not a lame in game trailer.

    I wonder if uniting the covenants means players can access other abilities without swapping?

    I find it interesting that WoW has settled into a rhythm with content (which isn't necessarily a bad thing)

    In Legion we saw the re-release of Karazhan as a mega dungeon, got new zones in Suramar, Broken shore (wherever the Tomb of Sarg was) and then ARgus.

    In BFA we saw Nazjatar and Mechagon as content areas along with Mechagon as the megadungeon.

    Now in SL we see a megadungeon in the first big patch yet again, which is fine. Means we have a patch cycle where its just mythic and then in 9.1.5 or 9.2 they introduce it as a keystone.

    I'm glad that Blizz has found a cycle that is working for them and gives the players some relative predictability with expected content.
