While Blizzard’s classic MMORPG World of Warcraft might’ve had some issues competing head to head against its competitors, it is not a shocker that the game is still being played and enjoyed by a lot of people. After all, its major expansion, Shadowlands, was one of the fastest-selling PC games of all time.

As such, the game’s expansion has been getting updated by the developers for a while. But, everything must come to an end ,as Blizzard has released the final update for Shadowlands. Called Eternity’s End, this marks the end of support for the expansion, and adds in a lot of changes- such as modifications to all the classes in the game, three new Night Elf male face options, a new zone called Zereth Mortis, a new faction called The Enlightened, and more. The update is pretty rich in content.

The patch notes are pretty large, so it is advisable to read them on the official website. For now, here are some of the class changes the update adds to the game.
