Covenant Dungeon Buffs
This page gives an overview of the various covenant related dungeon buffs in Shadowlands. Within, you will find all of the information we currently know from the Shadowlands Beta on where to find these buffs, how to unlock them and what you gain from them.
Covenant Dungeon Buffs
By being a member of the various covenants, you can unlock unique buffs for your party when doing the dungeons of your covenant's zone.
These buffs are also available in the Mythic+ (Keystone) version of the dungeons.
This is a summary of the available buffs:
Learn more on how to activate them and what each provides below.
Necrotic Wake Dungeon Buff
Kyrian players can use their Summon Steward signature ability to reactivate Malfunctioning Goliaths throughout the dungeon.
Once reactivated, these NPCs will spawn 5 Anima Orbs nearby which grant the Anima Exhaust buff, which everyone in your group should pick up.
Spires of Ascension Dungeon Buff
Inside, Kyrians can pick up Spear of Destiny from the body of a dead Kyrian after the first boss.
This spear can be used to stun and apply a 20% damage taken debuff to all enemies within an 8 yards circle, lasting for 10 seconds.
Halls of Atonement Dungeon Buff
Within, Venthyr players can find Loyal Stoneborn enemies, which can be made friendly for 30 seconds through the use of a special action button.
During this time, they will assist your group and damage your enemies. Your group will also gain Stoneborn Boon, which grants a 10% damage reduction buff, which stacks if you convert multiple Loyal Stoneborns.
Sanguine Depths Dungeon Buff
Within, Venthyr players can find and activate Anima Cages, which will then debuff enemies within 40y for 20 seconds, gaining stacks as they die.
Based on how many enemies are "fed" to the Anima Cage in this period, you will get a stacking damage and healing buff for 15 seconds, allowing you to potentially AoE down large packs for a huge boost!
You can watch a complete example of this process in this Twitch clip of ShampyTV.
Plaguefall Dungeon Buff
By using the Necrolord class ability, Fleshcraft, near the corpses of slime enemies, you can get their proximity buffs to allies: Corrosive Gunk from Gushing Slimes, Rapid Infection from Pestilence Slime and Congealed Contagion from Congealed Slime, respectively.
These buffs last for 3 minutes and are very powerful, so make sure to take advantage of them if you have a Necrolord in party!
Theater of Pain Dungeon Buff
This dungeon has several banners spread throughout which Necrolord players can interact with to receive the Necrolord's Chosen buff for 5 minutes.
Mists of Tirna Scithe Dungeon Buff
Night Fae players are able to interact with special objects in the Mists of Tirna Scithe dungeon.
These objects allow them to skip enemy packs, get 10% primary stat buffs (through Savory Statshroom or Tasty Toughshroom) for their party and unlock resurrection points through the dungeon, should a player release after dying.
You can watch an example of an unlockable resurrection point in this Twitch clip of UndadTV.
De Other Side Dungeon Buff
Night Fae players can use urn objects spread across the instance, which will start a channel (broken upon taking damage) that, if completed, unleashes Haunted Urn upon enemies within 30 yards, stunning them for 10 seconds.
You can watch an example of an urn being used (unsucessfully) in this Twitch clip of UndadTV.
