Home World of Warcraft Best Covenant for Each Class

In the Shadowlands the new location is divided into four zones. Each zone is governed by one of four covenants. During the questline you will be introduced to them, and at the max level you will be able to choose a side of the conflict. Each Covenant gives to the player certain class-specific Covenant ability, a Covenant movement ability, unique transmogs and more. This guide will provide tips on the most useful covenants for each specialization of each class.

Shadowlands Covenants

Kyrian — Angelic Soul Guides. We already met them in previous addons. For example, TheVal’kyr are the highest echelon of the Kyrian. Kyrians live in Bastion and value humility, righteousness, service, and virtue. At first sight this Covenant is the best choice for healers and good boys/girls.

Kyrian

Necrolords —covenant for the strong-willed, strong in body and mind souls. They live in Maldraxxus, but protect all Shadowlands from external forces. The Necrolords believe in the survival of the fittest and do not tolerate the weak one.

Necrolords

Night Fae — the personification of the forces of nature, Shepherds of the Cycle of Life and Death. Similar to Kirian they serve the cycle of death and rebirth that comes to all parts of nature. They live in Ardenweald — the mirror to the Emerald Dream.

Night Fae

Venthyr — cruel sadists tormenting weak souls. At the dawn of time they were judges, but unlimited power corrupted them. The Venthyr rule Revendreth — negative Silvermoon. A dark, Gothic-style zone with soaring castles.

Covenant General Abilities

All Covenants have special signature abilities that reflect the character of the Covenant. The signature ability of each Covenant is the same for all players.

Kyrian Covenant Signature Ability

 Summon Steward — сall your steward to bring you a Phial of Serenity that can be consumed to restore 20% health and remove all Curse, Disease, Poison, and Bleed effects. Your Steward additionally offers access to a selection of useful amenities for 4 min.

Necrolords Covenant Signature Ability

 Fleshcraft — form a shield of flesh and bone over 4 sec that absorbs damage equal to 20% of your maximum health for 2 min. Channeling near a corpse claims their essence to grow the shield, up to 50% of your maximum health. This is most effective against powerful enemies.

10 yd range, Channeled (4 sec cast), 2 min cooldown

Night Fae Covenant Signature Ability

 Soulshape — turn into a Vulpin, teleporting 15 yds forward and increasing your movement speed by 50%. You may reactivate Soulshape every few sec to teleport again. Lasts 12 sec, or indefinitely while in a rest area. Instant cast, 1.5 min cooldown. 

Venthyr Covenant Signature Ability

 Door of Shadows — wend through the shadows, appearing at the targeted location. 35 yd range, 1.5 sec cast, 1 min cooldown

How to Change Covenant

Even Afterlife forgives first mistake, and allows you to change your Covenant without penalty. 

To leave your current Covenant and join one you have not joined previously:

  1. Go to Oribos and consult the leader of the Covenant you want to join.

Kyrian – Polemarch Adestres: 36.2, 64.2

Necrolords – Baroness Draka: 43, 74

Night Fae – Lady Moonberry: 39.6, 60.9

Venthyr – General Draven: 44.7, 68.8

  1. Pick up the quest to go to your new Covenant Sanctum.

If you will do this, you will lose access to all your previous Covenant’s abilities, transmogs, and soulbinds.

The process becomes more difficult if you wish to rejoin a Covenant you had previously belonged to. In this case, you must make amends for your guilt before the previous covenant and prove your allegiance. To do this you will need  to complete two weekly quests (not in the same week), before you will be allowed to rejoin.

First of all leave your previous Covenant. Then pick up the questline (Prove Your Worth) of your new Covenant in their native location:

  • Kyrian — сomplete tasks in Bastion.
  • Necrolord — сomplete tasks and World Quests in Maldraxxus. (currently this is the only quest with World Quest requirements)
  • Night Fae — сomplete tasks in Ardenweald.
  • Venthyr — сomplete tasks in Revendreth.

Also you can complete the questline in dungeons associated with your Covenant’s area:

  • Kyrian: Necrotic Wake, Spires of Ascension
  • Necrolord: Plaguefall, Theater of Pain
  • Night Fae: Mists of Tirna Scithe, De Other Side
  • Venthyr: Halls of Atonement, Sanguine Depths

After completing the weekly questline you will get a second weekly questline. You must complete the new one to finish the process of changing to your previously-joined Covenant.

Pay attention Covenant Choice has no forgiving system. It means you will get a penalty even if you immediately change your mind after choosing Covenant, so choose wisely and take your time.

No wonder each class or even spec has the most effective Covenant’s abilities. Actually this chapter helps you to choose wisely.
