This page gives an overview of the Night Fae covenant in Ardenweald. Within, you will find all of the information we currently know from BlizzCon.



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



If the Emerald Dream mirrors the spring and summer of life, then the star-hued plane of Ardenweald reflects life in its twilight.

Those who pass on with a deep connection to nature are tended here by the mystic night fae, who retrieve anima from mortal souls and infuse it into slumbering spirits, rejuvenating their lives with the remnants of the old.

Ardenweald has suffered more keenly from soul-drought than any other realm in the Shadowlands. For the first time in endless ages, the night fae's Winter Queen must choose which of the land’s formerly lush groves—and which souls—will be fed the last precious drops of anima… and which will fade away forever.


Rewards of the Night Fae

Players will receive cosmetic and ability rewards for choosing the Night Fae as their covenant.


Cosmetic Rewards

Covenants will reward players with cosmetics based on their chosen covenant. As of right now, we know that players will receive a mount, a pet, an armour set, and cloaks that have the appearance of wings.

Below is an image of all of the plate sets. The Night Fae set is the first from the right.



The covenant ability for the Night Fae is Soulshape. It turns you into a Vulpin, increasing movement speed. You may reactivate Soulshape to teleport a short distance forward. Additional cosmetic forms can be earned and collected through a variety of gameplay. While out in the world, this effect has a short duration before it wears off, but lasts indefinitely while in a rest area.
