Home World of Warcraft Shadowlands Covenant Renown System

With the release of the new expansion, players will experience the new reputation system, which is called Renown. The Renown sticks to a selected Covenant and will become available at level 60 as well as the Covenant itself. The closest comparison is the Mists of Pandaria’s Tillers Friends reputations or Fisherfriends in Legion. But unlike the previous expansions, this time the new system plays a larger role in the game context.

Note that everything below said is a subject of discussion yet and may change on the release.

What is Renown?

Renown is a new Covenant progression system that will become available once you have selected a Covenant. This is specific esteem that grows in compliance with gained Renown levels. The higher is your Renown level is, the more Covenant features become available to you. They may be new Soulbinds and their traits, new Campaign quests, Sanctum upgrades, increased ilvl for World Quest rewards, Covenant themed cosmetic rewards (transmogrification sets, pets, mounts, titles, achievements, etc).

Unlike Artifact Power from Legion and Azerite Power from BfA, Renown is not an endless grind that made the community spend literary days in front of their screens just to become a little bit stronger. This time it is a finite progression system of only forty levels. What’s more, there is a weekly cap on how much Renown you can earn.

Renown is represented by a currency of the same name – Renown. There are four additional Covenant specific currencies, which are Renown-Kyrian, Renown-Venthyr, Renown-Necrolord, and Renown-NightFae. All of them count only towards their specific Covenant.

There are two ways to earn Renown. Each time you complete another Chapter of your Covenant Campaign, you gain a level of Renown. There will be eight chapters within each Covenant Campaign, meaning you will have eight Renown levels.

You will be able to complete two weekly quests, each of which will reward you with one Renown. One is called Replenish the Reservoir, and another Return Lost Souls. On the whole, it will take you not less than 14 weeks to reach the maximum Renown level.

A very good catching-up mechanism has been created for those players who remained behind, have switched Covenants, or decided to play alts. All these characters will have an opportunity to collect more Renown by participating in different in-game activities, such as Dungeons, Raids, PvP combats, and Callings (a new title for Emissary Quests).

Soulbinds Talents

renown

Each Covenant has three Soulbinds to introduce to you. Each of the Soulbinds has a unique talent tree of eight rows. Each row has up to three different talents, including conduits, to choose from. To get access to each row of talents players should reach a certain Renown level. For example, getting 4 Renown level gives you access to the third row of talents for the first (#1) Soulbind available. Upon reaching 21 Renown level you will be able to begin the final chapter of the Covenant’s campaign. After completing the campaign you will be able to select the third Soulbind. Below you may see a small table that shows all the details.

Shadowlands Pathfinder

There is not much information about flying in Shadowlands, and the requirements for Pathfinder Achievement are also unknown. What we do know is that flying in Shadowlands will not be available from the beginning as usual and that Covenant Renown, not faction reputation, will play a key role in unlocking flying in the new expansion. This is a very good idea because there will be no necessity to grind reputation with several different factions long after you have finished all the storylines.

Other great news about flying changes is that you no longer need to earn the achievements Draenor Pathfinder or Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One/ Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two to fly in Warlords of Draenor or Legion zones. The flying ability will be automatically available to every character that learned Expert Riding. However, you will still need to earn Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part One, and Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two, to fly in Battle for Azeroth zones.
