World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is live with patch 9.1.5, and Covenants are just one of the game systems that received extensive quality of life improvements.
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.
In Shadowlands, Conduits are a bit like gems: we'll slot them in our Soulbind trees to give ourselves buffs and abilities.
Your Covenant Sanctum in Shadowlands will let you customize your zone, run missions, host parties, and even farm souls
The Shadowlands beta is starting next week, and it will give us our first look at the complete Covenant system, including the new Sanctums feature.
In Shadowlands, the Night Fae Covenant shows us the mirror to the Emerald Dream and the darker half of the Wheel of Life.
Oribos, the Shadowlands capital city, has come to the alpha.
In Shadowlands, the Kyrian Covenant is all about righteousness, valor, and humility, while giving us fluffy owl buddies and wing transmogs.
In Shadowlands, the Venthyr Covenant is all about punishment and atonement.
I hope you like Hellenistic Greece because the first zone we're getting our hands on in Shadowlands is Bastion, which is full of cyprus-like trees, filmy drapings, and more wings than you've seen outside of Buffalo.
