Return to Covenant Made Easier With Hotfix

Recommended Posts

Blizzard are making a one-time hotfix to remove the "betrayer" status for players that have left their Covenants, making it easier to switch back! Previously, when coming back to a Covenant you had "betrayed" you had to go through a lengthy and time-gated process before rejoining.

When you leave a Covenant, they assign betrayer status to you. Returning to that Covenant is possible, but you have to take extra steps to regain their full trust.

Nonetheless, the Covenants are now coming together to fight a great threat, and there’s an upcoming new season, and they’re temporarily feeling more compatible with those who previously left their sanctums.

Considering all of the recent balance changes and new rewards like Covenant mounts, we’re creating a hotfix that will reset the betrayer status for all players who previously left any Covenants. This will be one-time renovation to your relationship with your old Covenant intended to make it easier for you to return and pick back up where you left off with them.

We expect the hotfix to go live in the next couple of days.

The saddest part is we know at the end of Shadowland this bullshit won't be around in the game and everyone will just enjoy grinding anima on 4 of the covenant, enjoy each ability, campaign, soul bind and everything. But because Blizzard force us to play 1 playstyle it just drive people mad because they create boundary for our game experience and that is just bad.. 

 

I'm not an hardcore player, I'm a casual, and I would love to just enjoy the game and don't feel like I will always be left behind because I chose something for cosmetic purpose

is that so? i havent read that yet.

i also dislike the time consumtion when you switch a covenant but i want to min - max and push higher dungeon keys. if you are playing casual there shouldnt be any problem in playing a covenant you like because of whatever reason, your dmg will always be enough for casual purposes.

 It was that way for legion legendary and azerith in BFA 

maybe i have a brain fart but are you comparing SL resource farming and legion/bfa legendary / azerith amor vendor? you also had resources which you had to farm in legion and BFA but instead you just had 1 thing to spend it on, while in SL you got 4 different once and you have to choose 1 out of 4 to spend your resources on. so in my opinion you got nothing which is compareable with the current situation that we had in the past expansions?

The thing with legion legendary was it was incredibly well receive, everyone saw opportunity from it, it was opening a box full of new build and way to play your character, until we realize it was 1°) random to get 2°) lock to only legendary at the first patch.

 

Everyone started to complain about it, saying that was a terrible design and we should be able to

1°) know when we would receive a new legendary (there was a site that was estimating how much % you were need to get a leg but that was sometimes random and wrong, sometimes you were at 100%, you were opening a random chest in open world and you were receiving your bis leg, happened to me)

2°) It was random, you had a very small chance to receive 1 legendary off of  15+ leg, and only 1 or 2 were bis other were *filtered*.

And 3°) until the second or third patch the chance to get leg was bound to your class and not spec, so you had to play only 1 char and only 1 spec otherwise you would always be left behind.

 

Until in last patch they made a vendor and a currency to buy it.

 

BFA azerith system, same thing, lot of opportunity, pretty neat BUT

 

1°) You could not roll off as much as you want

2°) you had to use different website to know which one were bis

3°) only a few were 

4°) Because of it's acquisition and how few were BIS it was frustrating, you were most of the time using low Ilvl gear that had the right affix rather than the high gear with the wrong one 

5°) it was lock on Champion of azeroth rep which was remove in 8.1 if I'm not wrong (despite being *filtered* since day one of beta) 

 

All of this issue were known since the beta, all of this issue were not accepted by the community and pointed out, devs knew about it and was fix in the last patch by adding a currency and a vendor.

 

And same goes with SL, the borrow power is badly implemented despite being *filtered* awesome, only a few are cool and only few are bis, it's time gated, you can't switch as you want and you know what ? We can come back in 1/2 years when the last patch of SL will eb release and all of those issue will be fix.. Despite being pointed out at the beta

 

I might sound negative, but I love wow, I love borrow power, I loved legion leg, I loved bfa azerith, I love covenant but the way it's handle and implemented is bad and it's really really sad

      Players on the Beta have been noticing some slowdowns and stutters before the recent maintenance, and since it is a Beta didn't think too much of it. However, it seems at least some of those issues may have been caused by a gigantic cluster of protodrakes!
      Plenty of players noticed this skinner's dream in the Waking Shores and Thaldraszus, starting with some screenshots and then culminating in a nightmare-inducing video, as the drakes fly off in search of their next victim.
      If you wanted to check if the flock was still there, here's the location, but they also seem to be appearing in the Veiled Ossuary in Thaldraszus. There were also plenty of hilarious comments on the posts, so here's some of them:
      I always knew the villain of the expansion was going to be the Infinite Dragonflight. - Bioslack
      ...
      Somebody messed up a "for" loop. - Zammin
      ...
      Even with Survival Instincts, Barkskin, and Rage of the Sleeper up all at once, I popped like a fucking grape within 3 seconds, lol. They all seem to cast something that deals ~22k damage baseline. I was able to use Anhylde's aegis to survive for 8 seconds and managed to get most of the group to like 70% health, but... again, popped like a grape once the aegis was gone. - Etamalgren
      ...
      One starfall and a raid full of skinners is what that pile needs. - Kambhela
      ...
      That is what they call in Dragonic Biology, a "Dragon Ball". - ReysonBran
      ...
      New Dragonflight bug feature: in-game GPU stress test. - dafino

      The XP buff has arrived (to NA at least, with EU getting it with tomorrow's reset)! It's time to level any new characters you had planned or old ones that aren't maxed yet, as the 50% buff will only last until the Dragonflight pre-patch. And while we don't yet know when exactly that will arrive, it's not too far away, with the expansion's release coming in under 2 months! 
      Winds of Wisdom (Source)
      If you’re just returning after a hiatus from World of Warcraft, leveling another character (or two), or preparing to get ready for the Dragonflight expansion then this is the perfect time to jump into the game. Beginning the week of October 4 with each region’s local weekly reset, all World of Warcraft* players level 10-59 will gain the experience buff called “Winds of Wisdom,” which will increase experience gains by 50%!
      Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available.
      * Experience boost not available in World of Warcraft Classic titles.

      Even though Dracthyr Evokers start at Level 60, Blizzard added some new intro quests in Dalaran for players that decide to go back and do Legion content for some reason.
      Dracthyr Evokers do not get an Artifact weapon or Class Order Hall. When you decide to skip the Legion intro you will end up in Dalaran. A new quest will automatically pop up for Evokers called Aiding Khadgar. You are tasked to meet Khadgar within the Violet Citadel. Khadgar will have another new quest for you -- An Adventurer's Aid, where he points you to a new scouting map. The map lets you pick a Legion zone for questing. Blizzard will most likely assign Evokers an existing DPS/Healer challenge. However, the Mage Tower appears to be disabled currently on the Beta. MrGM explored Evokers in Legion content further in his latest video.

      What's Going Away with Dragonflight Pre-Patch (Presumably on Oct 25)?
      The Winds of Wisdom buff that increases XP gains by 50%. Restoration Deathwalker (Shadowlands Season 4 mount). Season 4 Dungeon Teleports.
      What's Going Away When Dragonflight Launches?
      The Back from Beyond Shadowlands meta-achievement. Jigglesworth Sr. Carcinized Zerethsteed. Various Season 4 PvP rewards, and more. For more details check out our detailed guide!
