World of Warcraft kicks off Shadowlands’ beta with Covenant choices and legendary powers


It’s official: The World of Warcraft: Shadowlands beta test is now live. Considering the lack of any other major releases right now, it’s become the hottest ticket in town, with players rushing in to see what the next expansion will hold.

And what will these brave and not-at-all patient adventurers discover upon arrival? One of the very first things they’ll experience is the choice between Shadowlands’ four key Covenants. You’ll have some information to pick the right one, including a preview of the powers, mounts, and armor sets that they’ll eventually provide.

Another exciting revelation is the discovery of the new legendary powers for many of class builds. Paladins, Demon Hunters, and Windwalker Monks have had theirs spoiled for the curious.

Finally, Blizzard announced on the forums that Gladiator mounts are going account-wide as of the start of Shadowlands Season 1. “Not only has the game evolved with the introduction of new classes or changes to existing ones, but players’ preferences have often evolved with regard to the class they like to play most,” the studio said. “So, beginning in Shadowlands, all Gladiator mounts, including those from previous seasons, can be used by all characters across the account the mount was earned on.”

I think that World of Warcraft is a great game and there’s no doubt about it but real world is better anyway. I’m reading a good text about it and I really want you guys to spend some time and read this one too. Good luck.


Seems to me that as far as Gladiator mounts go that they are just fixing something that was broken rather than giving something new. Considering that mounts have been account wide for years now.
