Will SL be like BFA?

I preordered the most expensive Shadowlands edition available (however much that is) but I stopped playing a couple months ago pretty much strictly because I don’t like having to level the cloak.
Do you think SL will have something like that? I would assume not, being a brand new expansion but I’d like to get some opinions.

They flat out stated that the horrific visions is sort of a test for the Tower in SL. I don’t know the details of anything, just that there are builds people can do like being able to unlock certain chests that could give more rewards to the group or buffs, not sure if there will be a “Do the Tower to level up this item” deal or not.
