The upcoming Chains of Domination patch for World of Warcraft‘s Shadowlands expansion lets players do battle against the Banshee Queen herself, Sylvanas. It’s a fight that’s been brewing for years, and players are now finally getting the chance to go to war against her.
Sylvanas is the final boss in the Sanctum of Domination raid that’s coming to Shadowlands with the 9.1 update. At BlizzConline recently, we had a chance to speak with World of Warcraft technical director Frank Kowalkowski, who offered his thoughts on the greatly anticipated fight and what players can expect from it.
“This has been years in the making. This has been a very long story arc,” he said. “And tying back to Domination. It’s fitting that she’s at the top of the sanctum of Domination. Sylvanas’ own life began at the hands of Domination and she’s followed this path to eventually align with the Jailer going down the path that she’s had. So I think it’ll be a satisfying fight. I think it’s going to be very unique. We have some very cool things planned for players. Wish we could share them now! But players will see soon enough what we have planned there.”
