This page goes over the information currently available about Bastion, one of the new zones in the Shadowlands, and will be updated as more information becomes available.



This page will be updated as more information becomes available throughout Blizzcon and beyond.



The Kyrian Covenant—who are the forebears of the Val'kyr and the Spirit Healers—rule over Bastion. They are messengers, couriers, and some of the purest souls in the Shadowlands.

Bastion is ordered and purposeful. Souls naturally drawn to service are sent here by the Arbiter to examine their lives, cleanse themselves of their burdens, and work toward a state of virtue so they might ascend to serve the Shadowlands.

One such soul that has taken up within Bastion's vaunted halls is Uther the Lightbringer, whom players will encounter through their journeys.

Races in Bastion

Despite being a zone of purity, Bastion is home to both pure and impure creatures. Currently, we are aware of the following races in this zone.

  • Kyrians — these are the members of the covenant that rule over Bastion. They act as shepherds of the souls of the dead, ensuring that they reach judgement before moving on to their final destination. When a soul first arrives in Bastion, they become an Aspirant, destined to train until they can join the Ascended.
  • Stewards — these owl-like creatures are known as the keepers of Bastion, ensuring that it not only runs smoothly, but maintains that pristine look. They are the ones that built the Centurions.
    • Centurions — these anima-fueled constructs act as guards of Bastion, keeping the peace and helping to train the new Aspirants. There are three main types of Centurion: the Praetors, those that train the Aspirants, Goliaths, those that keep the peace in Bastion, and Colossi, those that have defended Bastion from any threats.
  • The Forsworn — when an Aspirant fails to complete their trials, they lose their way and wander Bastion in sorrow. If left to their own devices, these lost souls can quickly cause unrest in Bastion.
  • Manifestations — these are physical manifestations of the torment of the Kyrians.
