Blizzard released the schedule for this year’s online-only BlizzCon. While specifics are lacking, both Diablo and World of Warcraft seem to hold focus this year. The online convention runs from Feb 19th -21st. WoW is not likely to receive a new expansion given the recent launch of Shadowlands.

With the update, players can use their Valor point to upgrade gear dropped from keystone dungeons, allowing them to progress significantly farther than before. More information on patches 9.0.5 and 9.1 is likely coming during BlizzCon 2021.
