World of Warcraft – Shadowlands Season 4 Is Now Live

Developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced the start of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Season 4, bringing back eight dungeons from earlier expansions, new seasonal rewards, all-new affixes and more.

One of the new features of the season are so-called Fated Raids. Each week, one of the Shadowlands raids (Castle Nathria, Sanctum of Domination or Sepulcher of the First Ones respectively) will become Fated alongside with any World Bosses associated with the raid.

Once you enter a Fated raid, you’ll notice that all enemies and bosses will have adjusted stats. Additionally, each boss encounter will be empowered by one of four unique Fated Powers. These will vary from boss to boss and week to week, presenting challenges for your raid group that reward Fated Infusions, temporary powerful auras for your efforts.

Several new rewards can be obtained by achieving the following Feats of Strength during Season 4:

  • Clear all 3 Fated raids on Normal difficulty – Rewards the Jigglesworth Sr. mount
  • Clear all 3 Fated raids on Heroic difficulty – Rewards the “Hero of Fate” title
  • Clear all 3 Fated raids on Mythic difficulty – Rewards three teleports to each Shadowlands raid location on the character that earned the achievement.

Other new additions to Season 4 include:

  • Puzzling Cartel Dinars – through the entirety of the season, players can acquire Puzzling Cartel Dinars by entering any Fated raid in Season 4 and completing the required 3-part questline. But there’s a catch: you will only be able to get three Puzzling Cartel Dinar for the entire season. They can be used to buy a number of wares from a trio of suspicious brokers around the Great Vault.
  • Heroic & Mythic Upgrade Items – In Season 4, defeating bosses on Heroic or Mythic difficulty will drop either Confounding Antique Cypher (on Heroic) or Confounding Ancient Cypher (on Mythic). Combine 20 Cyphers to upgrade gear to their Heroic or Mythic versions.
  • New Mythic + Dungeon Rotation includes:
    • Tazavesh: Streets of Wonder (from the Shadowlands expansion)
    • Tazavesh: So’leah’s Gambit (from the Shadowlands expansion)
    • Operation Mechagon: Junkyard (from the Battle for Azeroth™ expansion)
    • Operation Mechagon: Workshop (from the Battle for Azeroth™ expansion)
    • Return to Karazhan: Lower (from the Legion™ expansion)
    • Return to Karazhan: Upper (from the Legion™ expansion)
    • Grimrail Depot (from the Warlords of Draenor™ expansion)
    • Iron Docks (from the Warlords of Draenor™ expansion)
  • New Mythic Keystone Affix: Shrouded – Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among certain non-boss enemies in dungeons. You can see through their clever disguises if you pay close attention. Defeat these impostors, and a Cartel Ta member will capture them and allow you a choice of bounties that will enhance a secondary stat of your choice. You’ll also receive a hefty Bounty Payment that quickly restores health and mana.
  • Mythic+ rewards include The Shrouded title and the Restoration Deathwalker mount as well as teleports to the completed dungeons
  • New PvP season kicks off as well. Obtaining the Eternal Gladiator: Shadowlands Season 4 Feat of Strength at the end of the Season will award you the Eternal Gladiator’s Soul Eater mount and the Eternal Gladiator title. In addition, a new mount—the Vicious Warstalker—can be obtained by participating in rated PvP matches (Arenas or Rated Battlegrounds).
