It was just yesterday that people found out World of Warcraft: Shadowlands had made a change to Covenant abilities by limiting them to the eponymous Shadowlands. This made a lot of people angry and was generally regarded as a bad news. So good news: A new post from director Ion Hazzikostas confirms that the change will be reverted in the net beta build based on the overwhelming volume of player feedback.
Of course, it’s worth noting that in the same post the reason given is that Covenant powers are once again a temporary power system that will be removed in two years, which has prompted many people in the thread to note that that is the problem. “Fun doesn’t need to be temporary,” one player on the forum notes. But, hey, at least the immediate problem has been solved! We can only hope that this much attention is paid to balance concerns and other gameplay issues.
