WoW Shadowlands World Boss Rotation Schedule

There are four World Bosses in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, and they rotate weekly. A new boss spawns every week in a new location, and you don’t need to be in a raid group to kill them and receive their loot. The bosses are Mortanis of Maldraxxus, Oranomonos the Everbranching of Ardenweald, Nurgash Muckformed of Revendreth, and Valinor of Bastion. In this post, we’ll show you the WoW Shadowlands World Boss rotation schedule for upcoming weeks.

World Bosses are perhaps the easiest way to get high-tier ilvl 207 loot, equivalent to items from Castle Nathria on normal difficulty. Check each of the four main Shadowlands regions for the World Boss Event icon.
