WoW Shadowlands World Boss Schedule, Explained

World bosses in WoW are Raid Boss-level monsters that appear in the shared game world and drop high-level loot. They have long been a staple of the game, so unsurprisingly, the Shadowlands expansion introduced a number of World Bosses into the world.

Four bosses are on rotation for Shadowlands, with a new one swapping in every week. Each can be found in their own separate areas, all in new zones introduced in Season 1.

There is Oranomonos the Everbranching, who can be found in Ardenweald and happens to be the current World Boss.

February 16: Nurgash

February 23: Valinor

March 2: Mortanis

March 9: Oranomonos

Each of the bosses all have their different strengths and weaknesses, so be sure to study tactics and come up with a strategy before you try and slay them.
