Home World of Warcraft Things to do before 9.1 patch

The first season of WoW Shadowlands patch 9.0.5 is coming to an end, and soon some rewards will no longer be available in patch 9.1.0. We have prepared for you a list of things that you should and shouldn’t do before the 9.1 patch. Some of the things in the list are quite difficult to get on your own, but with our team achieving these goals is possible without spending much time. The release date is on June 29, so we don’t have a lot of time.

What you should do before 9.1 patch

Each expansion for World of Warcraft is divided into seasons and at the time of the release of the “Chain of Dominance” update, the first season of Shadowlands will end and the second will begin. Because of this, all seasonal achievements and rewards will no longer be available for obtaining. Here’s a quick list of what to do in Season 1.

Ahead of the curve: Sire Denathrius

Complete the Achievements Ahead of the Curve: Sire Denathrius and Cutting Edge: Sire Denathrius;

This achievement goes automatically to Great Feats with the release of the new raid Sanctum of Domination. The Achievement is prestigious and when recruiting a group for a raid, people usually ask for these achievements. Many specifically collect them for themselves or to brag to their friends. Until the 9.1 update is released on live servers, this cannot be confirmed, but at the moment, in order to start a series of tasks in Corthia, you need to have a completed task to imprison Denathrius, which can only be obtained after killing him. Even if the developers will fix this so that there will be no potential problems with this, it is better to kill him at least on the LFR difficulty level before the release of 9.1 and complete the “Redemption for the Redeemer” quest. 

Buy a boost specifically Sire Denathrius you can from our website at the Castle Nathria Heroic raid run. With many partners, we can find you a convenient schedule for both the European and the American region.

Stock up on some Stygia

Yes, Stygia will no longer be such an important currency in the Chains of Dominance, but there are two points to keep in mind. Firstly, if you need to further strengthen your current character and / or if you still have not bought all the general bonuses for Torgast, then you still need the Stygia. Secondly, in Update 9.1 for 1000 Stygia, you will be able to purchase tokens for level 200 equipment with the possibility of subsequent transfer to any character on your account. In addition, it makes no sense to accumulate and actively extract the stygia, since it will be much easier to obtain, and there is not so much need for it as before.

Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season One

An achievement that every player should probably have. The special feature is getting the Sintouched Deathwalker, which will no longer be available in season 2.

To complete the Keystone Master achievement, you must complete 8 dungeons with a 15 or higher key, meeting the time limit. List of dungeons:

  • Necrotic Wake
  • Mists of Tirna Scithe
  • Spires of Ascension
  • De Other Side
  • Plaguefall
  • Halls of Atonement
  • Theater of Pain
  • Sanguine Depths

With our service, you can buy the boost of all dungeons in the Keystone Master, or if you have already passed some dungeons, you can choose in the Mythic +15 Boost any desired, as well as get a free trader on your type of armor. The time to complete the Keystone Master takes on average 1 day. You can choose to “Self Play” or “Account Share” to save your time. The service is available in both regions Europe and America on all factions.

Soul ash may still come in handy


Again, it all depends on whether you play as one character or several at once. If you have already created all the necessary legendary items for your main character for all the necessary specializations, then Soul Ash you won’t need it. If you already have alternative characters or they are in the plans, then ashes of souls it will be possible to transmit any character on your account.

Thanks to Packed Soul Ash it will be possible to transfer 250 or 1300 soul ashes, spending 300 or 1500 ashes, respectively (Brokers always take their share for their services). This will allow you to easily create a legendary Level 4 item on any alternate character without having to go to the Auction House. There will be no other use for Soul Ashes in Update 9.1, as it will be used to create legendary items of Level 5 and 6. Brand new currency – Soul Cinders. In addition, more Soul ash will drop when entering Torghast for the first time, and the restriction on receiving them will be lifted in “Chains of Domination”

Take care of your companions from the commander’s table

This is especially true for those who have recently decided to change the covenant. Update 9.1 introduces new tasks with new rewards, and starting at Level 48, you can complete tasks for pets and mounts. The biggest benefit of the commander’s table is a huge amount of consumables for professions and super-useful (and just as expensive at the beginning of mastering a new raid) Veiled Augment Rune.

Gladiator: Shadowlands Season One

A great achievement for any player. One of the most difficult ranks to obtain at least once. The rewards and title of the gladiator season change with each season. 

What rewards do you get by completing the achievement Gladiator: Shadowlands Season 1:

Achievements and Titles:

  • Combatant: Season 1 of Shadowlands 
  • Challenger: Season 1 of Shadowlands
  • Rival: Season 1 of Shadowlands
  • Duelist: Season 1 of Shadowlands
  • Title: Gladiator
  • Epic Mount: Sinful Gladiator’s Soul Eater

The achievement is performed in a 3v3 arena in ratings 2400+, and you need to have 50 victories to progress to the achievement itself. You can track victories by using macros:

 /run AddTrackedAchievement(14689)

How do I buy Gladiator Boost?

Our team has prepared a Gladiator Boost for you, where you can choose any rating range to start the boost. Delivery time depends on your choice, we offer from three days to one month, but do not forget that soon is the end of the season and there will be very little time, so before buying consult with a manager to clarify the details.

Vicious War Spider

A seasonal mount War Spider that is part of the Saddle. In order to perform it, you must win 2v2, 3v3 or RBG. Upon reaching 100% of the line, you get this mount.

Our team offers to purchase the item at an affordable price and calculate a fair price from your current progress. This service is available in “Self Play” and “Account Share” modes. You can check it here.

Elite PvP Season one Shadowlands set

With the release of the new patch 9.1 WoW Shadowlands will introduce new equipment from PvP merchants and the old will no longer be available. To get this set, you only need to have a 2v2 or 3v3 arena rating of 1800 or higher, as well as the availability of conquest points to buy them. The set will be in your collection and you can wear it quickly at any time.

Prepare a fast character for a quick run through the tasks of Korthia

If you are not interested in the plot of Korthia or Shadowlands in general, the developers have introduced the ability to skip the story chain of 30 tasks of this new location for alternative characters. However, you will have to pass it with any one character. Ideally, prepare a monk, druid, or mage who can quickly pass the Korthia and open up a pass option for your other characters. Once this condition is met, just talk to the Bolvar in Oribos and you won’t have to go through Korthia again.

What not to rush and what not to do

No need to try to get mount in the Maw

After completing the task in the Maw, which takes about 30 minutes to complete, you will unlock the ability to use any mounts in the Maw. You will no longer need to try your best to get Mawsworn Soulhunter, Bound Shadehound or Corridor Creeper – only if you really want them in your collection.

You should not buy Spatial Realignment Apparatus

In update 9.1 a new item will appear to create cells for gems, as well as Spatial Realignment Apparatus It will only apply to items obtained in the first season of Shadowlands. And as mentioned earlier, Stygia can come in handy for equipping your fresh alternate characters into Level 200 items.

There is no need to chase the item level anymore

If you are still mastering Ser Denatria or going to Mythic+ dungeons, then yes, the item level of your character’s is important to you, but you should not do this specifically for the release of the Chain of Domination update. If you don’t already have time to gear up your alt character in level 200 items, then don’t – stygia will help you quickly get geared in level 200, and you can continue to improve it up to 233.

As a reward for completing the task, the Korthia also melt level 200 equipment, so it’s better not to spend gold, time and effort on gearing the character, because in 9.1 this will be done much faster.

There is no point in having a lot of anima

Just like in the first season of Shadowlands, anima will still be used exclusively to purchase cosmetic items. If you want to quickly get the desired cosmetics, you should improve covenant buildings up to level 3. Plus, in Update 9.1, you will be able to earn more anima for new levels of fame.

There is no point in having the maximum level of fame

First, it is relevant for those players who decided to change the covenant because of the balance of the new update 9.1. Secondly, as the developers themselves say, there will be several more sources to gain fame, as well as the current system of catching up on lost fame, the chance of triggering will be adjusted. Unfortunately, at the moment, even on test servers, this cannot be verified.

You don’t have to go through the Bolvar questline

If you need a free Soul Ash, then you are welcome to complete all the weekly tasks of Bolvar. In “Chains of Domination” a new feature will appear: talk to Bolvar and skip the entire chain of tasks of Torgast, in which we rescue famous heroes from there and find out information about one missing king. However, to do this, there is one condition: you will need to complete the third chapter of the Covenant campaign Update 9.0.1 (opening of the Runecarver) on your character.

Don’t do something that will become much easier with the release of flights

Tasks, achievements, and production of consumables in the open world will become significantly faster in the second week of update 9.1, when you will be able to fly in Shadowlands locations. Don’t waste your time on this right now if you haven’t completed any achievements or haven’t earned any mounts that won’t be available in the second season.
