World of Warcraft: Shadowlands
is set to get its first major content drop soon, with the big 9.1 Chains of Domination
set to continue the story in the afterlife and even bring to the for a massive showdown with Sylvannas as part of the new Raid. Ahead of the Blizzconline announcement we sat down with the WoW team to go through what's in store.
“The Chains of Domination part of that storyline is now okay, we've become stronger so it’s time to take the fight to our enemy, the Jailer,” Steve Danuser, Lead Narrative Designer on World of Warcraft Shadowlands tells AusGamers. “Of course he hasn't been idle either and he's been gathering strength and moving to the next stage of his plan. The first thing that he had to do was get all those souls pouring into the Maw -- which became this scary and oppressive place. Now we have a chance to go in there and make a foothold, and find out what the Jailer’s up to.”

As for Korthia, apparently it was built by the same mysterious “first ones'' that built Oribos, so it’ll share similar architecture and an additional layer of mystery on the account of it being deliberately hidden. “Think of it as like a secret vault for the deepest, darkest secrets of the Shadowlands,” Steve explains. “A place for weapons that were never meant to be in the hands of anyone, things that should be hidden away for all of time. And that's what Korthia’s purpose was and why the Jailer has been looking for it.”
