Chains of Domination also introduces a 10-boss raid called the Sanctum of Domination, and it sounds like a true challenge. It culminates in a battle against the iconic Warcraft villain Sylvanas. "Encounter the true Eye of the Jailer, turn the tide against Tarragrue, and come face-to-face with the Banshee Queen herself in a fateful confrontation," reads a line from the description.

A new mega-dungeon called Tazavesh, the Veiled Market, is also included in the Chains of Domination update. This eight-boss Mythic dungeon takes place in the bazaar of Brokers. It ends with a "high-stakes heist" to pillage powerful artifacts.

Finally, the Chains of Domination update--which is free for subscribers--comes with new PvP Season 2 content, new Covenant cosmetic armor sets for any class, additional powers for Soulbinds and Conduits, and more mounts and pets to collect. What's more, the update introduces flying to the Covenants' four domains.
