WoW Shadowlands patch 9.1 continues the story of the Dungeon Master's plans. Zovaal is attacking the realms of the Shadowlands and is trying to get his hands on the Seals of the Pact. We already showed you what this is all about in our special The 5 Greatest Secrets of the Dungeon Master.

The dataminers at have dug up the previous placeholder videos surrounding the story in Patch 9.1. One of the in-game videos shows the leaders of the pacts conferring before the Ardenwald is attacked by the Dungeon Master. As Lore experts have already guessed, there are unique powers behind the Pacts' sigils that, when combined, have a powerful effect that Zovaal somehow wants to harness. Only the Seal of Maldraxxus - which cannot be found - and the Judge's Seal are still needed by the Jailer.
