Covenant Ability Visual Updates in Patch 10.2.5

Recommended Posts

68040-covenant-abilities-remain-covenant

Shadowlands Covenant abilities that have made into class talents in Dragonflight received new animations in Patch 10.2.5!

Shadowlands Covenant abilities transferred over into Dragonflight with Covenant-themed animations even though they have been baked into class talents. However, Blizzard is updating their spell animations in the forthcoming update to the game.

Opaldiia released two videos covering the new animations. The first video shows Mage's Shifting Power, Radiant Spark, Druid's Convoke the Spirits, Paladin's Divine Toll, Shaman's Primordial Wave, Rogue's Sepsis, and Hunter's Death Chakram.

The second video showcases Druid's Adaptive Swarm, Death Knight's Abomination Limb, Paladin's Divine Toll (one more time for some reason) and Blessing of Seasons.

The uhh... Adaptive Swarm does not look better. It looks worse.

I'm starting to wonder if there's a single post of yours that is not complaining. 

No, it does look better, unless you want to explain why you're sending out a horde of dead flies as a druid.

Sure I'll explain it.

This:

is transparent and wisp like and ethereal and while it could probably use some improvement to align it more with druids specifically, it still looks better than this:

which is none of those things and looks like some poison cloud or rogue something or the other.

The druid ones looks worse, imo.

Explaining why:
I think they are worse designwise.
A.S looks like a fartcloud now, less interesting, not actually flies going out (which makes sense for druids)
Convoke looks less flowy, it's stale and purple instead of a more natural blue. I thought of it like water-power, but I guess they are going for a more arcane look now.

Also gonna add in that I think Shifting Power looks worse for Mage too, it has more power to it in the current version, imo.
The new one might align more with pure arcane magic however, so I guess that's the argument for it; but it still looks a lot "less".

I don`t think this was meant to make them look "better" but rather remove the resemblence of Shadowlands covenants, because most of these abilities look out of place to the general class design

Yes that's why they said they were doing it but it should still look like a swarm and not a toxic gas cloud.

iuno maybe it's just me lol

i want them to remove some covenant skills, bonedust brew, faeline stomp, primordial wave, and almost everything but abomination limb and mind games. 
ITS MY OPINION, SUPERIOR THAN YOURS, BUT ITS MINE.

      Danta is back with another soloing guide, this time, covering how to obtain Glory of the Uldir Raider achievement that rewards a crawg mount!
      Glory of the Uldir Raider rewards the Bloodgorged Crawg mount and you must enter Uldir, the first Battle for Azeroth raid, to earn the achievement and get the mount.
      Here's what the mount looks like:
      Bloodgorged Crawg
      This crawg was left alone to feast on G'huun's corrupted blood and rot. He was so happy.

      The Uldir meta-achievement requires players to complete a total of 8 achievements (1 per boss). For more details, you can watch Danta's video linked below.
      In case you've missed it, there's also a guide on how to solo the Tomb raider meta-achievement.

      It's surprising to learn just how many racial abilities have been removed from WoW over the years (or changed/nerfed enough as to basically be a different ability). Today we have hirumaredx going over some of the most overpowered and fun ones.
      The first one triggers me greatly, as the idea of tauren just running around really fast instead of mounting was one of the reasons I even installed WoW back in the day in the first place! The video also talks about Priest-specific racial spells , some that don't fit the OP or fun description of the video, the Blood Elf ones you knew would be featured, and more.

      During one raid, we got to see the Fyr'alath bad luck protection buff work wonders, yielding 12 drops from a single Fyrakk kill.
      Sacolas shared an interesting shot on Reddit, showing 12 Fyr'alaths dropping simultaneously! This might just be the record for the most Fyr'alath the Dreamrender drops we've seen from a single kill to date. Sadly, the original poster missed out on the quest item, and looted instead a Greater Ember of Fyr'alath. Here's hoping for better luck next week!

      What's the highest number of Fyr'alaths you've seen drop from one kill? Let us know in the comments below!
