More World of Warcraft: Shadowlands covenant abilities unveiled as Classic returns layering for population issues

Sometimes it just makes sense.

As the testing for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands continues, players continue to datamine the game and find new information about what’s coming with the expansion. Among the latest datamining discoveries are a set of new or updated covenant abilities, signature class skills that you gain access to when you ally with one of the major factions in the eponymous Shadowlands.

Players who are less about the future and more about the past while playing in WoW Classic, meanwhile, have no doubt noticed some notable population jumps. The result is that layering is back in place on some of the highest population servers, with a lengthy explanation of why the team went with layering instead of other solutions. The short version is that most of the other tactics require people just laving the servers they’ve chosen to play on or involve technology that’s incompatible with Classic, making layering as a temporary solution far more reasonable.

Last and certainly not least, you can go ahead and celebrate the achievement of Ferrandi, a Draenei Paladin who made it from 1-120 without dying a single time. No deaths whatsoever. Or you can be like far too many people on the discussion board and claim that it’s not really an accomplishment, if you want to be a joyless toolbox.
