The Covenant abilities for Death Knights in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands have been revealed

When World of Warcraft: Shadowlands arrives, every individual class will be choosing between four different class-specific abilities via the Covenants. Of course, enterprising fans on the BlizzCon show floor when the expansion was revealed took a look at all of the Kyrian Covenant abilities for the twelve classes, and during the panels the Mage abilities for all the Covenants got shown off. But now a new batch is available courtesy of GameInformer, which has revealed the Covenant abilities for Death Knights of all stripes.

Each of the abilities works somewhat differently, but they are all thematically tied to Death Knights as a class, ranging from the natural wilting of Death’s Due (courtesy of the Night Fae) to just sprouting a new undead limb and going to town on your target (courtesy of the Necrolords). Of course, the numbers on the abilities are no doubt subject to change, but players can take a look at the full lineup to get an idea of how the now proliferating Death Knights will be harnessing the literal power of death in the expansion.

While the abilities sound really good, i’m not liking the fact they’re tied to the covenants. Won’t we lose them when the next xpac drop?

It is incredibly likely. We don’t get any cool new spells in WoW anymore. We just rent them for $15/month.

When was the last talent tier introduced? Two xpacs ago i think? Been a while.

That’s always been the case, you can’t play the game unless your have an active subscription, perhaps you’ve been living isolation since 2004.

For the baseline spells you can unsub and (usually) they’ll still be there when you come back to the game. You “own” them. For most Legion Artifact spells, if you didn’t actively rent them during Legion, you missed out on them completely. That’s what I mean.

That’s not what we’re discussing, dude. We’re talking about the fact that a huge part of our rotation and cool spells are tied to xpacs, and end up obsolete.

Artifact weapons are a good example, but really, who’s to say that these spells won’t become obsolete after the new xpac drops?

There will be other abilities. Change = fresh and new exciting experience

Can you not be all sunshine and rainbows towards a problem that the WoW devs keep repeating for years now? It’s irritating.

You don’t say.

You also enjoy a great deal of being wrong.

Just because he has opinions that doesn’t mean he’s wrong per say, for example he thinks offering up temporary abilities every expansion makes game play fresh that’s just his opinion.

It makes him wrong because this is a issue that Blizzard had for ages, to reinvent the wheel every xpac, to give us goodies and take them away. It’s extremely unfun to find out that everything you work for is now obsolete.

Only the gear, as I mentioned in another comment a lot of the popular expansion features get baked in to the classes either baseline or through the talents as I’ve seen happen with Death Knight artifact abilities.

Not at all, there were many artifact abilities that were baked into talent choices for BFA, while they haven’t introduced new tiers for talents Blizzard does change talents every 2 years, I’ve noticed this on my Death Knight. Stands to reason that popular covenant abilities might get baked into classes for future expansions as well.

Funny how no one acknowledges this smoking gun.
