We are a few months into Blizzard Entertainment‘s MMORPG World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and with the first part of the campaign officially done, it might seem like there isn’t a lot to do in-game. However, I promise that there is more than enough to keep you busy week to week. You just need to find something that keeps you engaged. Now you can do things like level alternative characters through old content, farm past raids and dungeons for transmog, or go on a mount farming spree. But those are things you can do during any expansion, honestly. So I have compiled a list of five things you can do right now in current content to get your World of Warcraft fills!
Torghast and Twisting Corridors
With the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands came a new type of game mode, Torghast. The Tower of the Damned is an end game instance that tests players’ skills against powerful enemies in a rogue-like dungeon crawler. Each wing features different enemies and mechanics players will need to contend with as they climb the tower. The higher the climb, the tougher the enemies can be, so grab your friends and proceed with caution. If you’ve reached the top of Torghast, might I suggest testing your merit in Twisting Corridors? This 18-floor tower climb is packed with terrifying enemies and elites hunting you down. Completing all the layers will grant you a mount you can use in the Maw and the ability to brag to your friends that you survived it all.
Covenant Dailies and Quests
We spent the first few weeks in the Shadowlands helping to get our covenants back into working order. Now it’s time for them to pay us back a bit. By completing the daily callings from your covenant, there is a chance you will get gear, trinkets, resources, or items you can sell for quite a bit of gold. And gold lets you buy all the cool mounts in the world. Plus, you will gain reputation with each of the covenants by completing your dailies. Rep grind has always been a requirement for flying later in expansions, along with the ability to earn mounts and covenant-specific cosmetics. You can also level those other alt characters through the expansion and drop them into other covenants to experience all of the stories.
Mythic Plus Dungeons
A large part of the endgame in the most recent expansions of World of Warcraft has been taking the dungeons and making them more challenging. These mythic plus dungeons include a timer, a series of affixes that increase the difficulty of different parts of the dungeon and stronger enemies. Players will need to work together to clear a set amount of trash mobs in the dungeon and the main bosses. Aside from things just generally hitting harder, the affixes add the spice. One week might feature tougher trash mobs with tornadoes that will throw you across the room and the next could be bosses with more health and special trash mobs that inspire the rest of them. I suggest really challenging yourself and completing all eight dungeons on a +15 key and getting that sweet mount and achievement before the season ends!
Castle Nathria Raid
If you have cleared all of the dungeons and ready for something a bit tougher, might I suggest this tier’s raid? Castle Nathria is located in the Revendreth zone and continues the story we experienced while leveling. If you are new to raiding, I highly suggest checking out the LFR (looking for raid) version before diving into the other difficulties. The boss fights are exciting and really challenge your ability to play your class and work alongside others. One mistake can mean the difference between securing a boss kill and an entire raid wipe in greater difficulties. The stress has never felt so good.
If PVE (player versus environment) isn’t quite your speed, then maybe check out the PVP (player versus player) side of World of Warcraft. This pits players against each other in a few different ways. Skirmishes can be done in two versus two or three versus three matches. This is just pure player versus player. Test how well you know your abilities and how fast you can burn the other team down. If you are looking for something that pits players against each other but still has some objective element? Then battlegrounds might be right up your alley. If you think you have the skills to compete at a higher level, test your might in the rated arena and see how far you can climb.
