Earlier today we noted that World of Warcraft’s most recent build for patch 9.1.5 was marked as a release candidate, which in and of itself means that the update was getting closer to release. Now we have an official date via the game’s official Twitter account: Patch 9.1.5 will be released on November 2nd, just under two weeks from now.
For those of you looking forward to a whole lot of new content… well, you’re not getting it. This is not a patch with a whole lot of content. There is a fair amount of old content, however, with Legion Timewalking and the return of the Mage Tower challenge. Players will also have access to a number of different customization options for several allied races (Void Elves, Nightborne, Lightforged Draenei, and Highmountain Tauren) as well as a number of the changes that have been made to remove content Blizzard no longer wants present in the live game.
Edit to add: We would like to make sure our readers recall that November 2nd is also the date of the third-quarter financial conference call, when the effects of the ongoing scandal will be in full view as the reporting will cover the period of July, August, and September.
9.1.5 arrives November 2. #Shadowlands
