The latest Shadowlands patch continues the Covenant campaign and rewards flying upon the completion of the Chapter 4 quest line which unlocks at Renown 47.
Flying is always on players' minds when a new expansion comes out.
Borrowed power systems have been a staple of World of Warcraft since the Legion expansion.
The Covenant Sanctum asks each character that darkens its doorstep to earn 1,000 Anima every week -- but that's just the minimum players should be pulling.
Even with all the hours players spent in the Shadowlands alpha and beta tests, you can't entirely see the impact of some game systems until the entire player base has a chance to explore it.
I was all for increasing my Renown when it meant that I had more of the Covenant Campaign story to see in Shadowlands.
I really expected I would approach Shadowlands leveling in a systematic way, using the Threads of Fate system to pop all of my alts to max level as fast as possible, and I was entirely and completely wrong about this.
I play WoW because I freaking love the game.
I don't want to like how the Covenants work.
Now that I have two characters at 60 and have started catching up on Renown -- level 6 today yay -- I'm really coming to realize I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when it came to getting my Covenant systems in place.
