Shadowlands: Kyrian Covenant Class-Specific Abilities

Recommended Posts

d6MK9zD.jpg

In Shadowlands, each realm is ruled by a different Covenenant. You will be able to switch between four Covenants, each granting you a class-specific and a general ability. Here's a preview of the Kyrian Covenant's class-specific abilities taken from Sloot's stream.

For more details check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub!

The Covenant abilities work pretty much like Garrison zone abilities back in Warlords of Draenor. If you're in Bastion, you're going to have access to the following class-specific (and in some cases, specialization-specific abilities):

I think those should be cosmetic only, having abilities associated with Covenant choice will be a hell to balance. Some choices might turn out to be pointless, as people will figure out which one is the strongest.

There will always be min-maxxers and I believe adding options like this is interesting. 

On paper, I feel like Priest can really abuse theirs here, so do Rogue. Warriors get an escape potentially.

All in all, I like it ?

      The Marks of Honor calculator is a spreadsheet that tells you how many marks you need to buy everything.
      Created by boldchickeneater, the Marks of Honor calculator lets you simply calculate how many marks you need to purchase pretty much anything from the vendors.
      Where can you buy marks in Valdrakken?
      Seltherex is located at 44, 37 in Valdrakken (Gladiator's Refuge). For 2,000 Honor, you can buy 5 marks (Orboreal Distinguishment).

      Open this link and navigate to File > Make a copy. Now when you own a set, you can replace the "12" in the corresponding cell with "0" and it will update the totals.
      Combatant sets and weapons can be filtered out if you are not interested in them.

      Blizzard just posted another War Within short story. This time, it's about Moria Thaurissan and her son Dagran II, who both play an important role in the upcoming expansion!
      (Source)
      Queen Regent Moira Thaurissan is exhausted. Her son, Dagran II, is rapidly coming of age and stands to inherit leadership of both the Dark Iron and Bronzebeard Clans. But Dagran is bookish and odd: He would easily choose the company of his library over leadership. Can Moira inspire her son to take up his birthright, or will her fears for his future—and the future of the clans—prove true?
