Covenant Class Abilities
All classes got minor or major changes in their covenant abilities. The main goal Blizzard has is to balance the covenant class abilities so that none of them sticks out too much compared to the others within a class. So basically, you will see maybe a nerf in the best covenant for your class/spec and upgrades on the covenants that are not good, or as good.
