Best covenants for each classes

There are 4 covenants (factions) in Shadowlands.

You will experience all 4 when leveling up in Shadowlands.

At max level, you must choose 1 of the 4 covenants.

The covenant that you choose will eventually reward you with

-                           A Signature and a class specific ability.

-                           Cosmetic rewards (mount/armor set/per/cloak)

Each covenant will reward you with

  • A Signature ability (everyone gets this ability no matter class and race).
  • A class/spec ability
  • Soulbinding (Total of 3 NPC in which each one has a talent tree with power for you. You have one active soulbind NPC at a time). 

All these 3 affects what covenant is the best for you class and also spec. 

Can you change Covenant

Yes, you are allowed to change covenant.

If you change to another covenant that you never been on before at max level, you can do that without any issues.

If you choose a covenant that you have been on before at max level, then you have to do some quests to make the covenant accept you again.

Best covenants

The best covenant for a class is also what type of gameplay you play.

It can be a covenant that is good for PvP but another one that is better for tanking, and another one that is better for dps. It might even differ between best covenant if you do raids or M+.

During beta and into live as well, I will test all there is and gather all information and references to give you the best covenant choice for your class, based on what gameplay you do.

It´s to early to list them up now because a lot will change until we get a final built for live.
