Covenants are four powerful and very old fractions that reign in Shadowlands from the time when the world was created. There are a lot of legends and stories about them, but you better learn them separately. They were reigning in Shadowlands on four zones, that were separated between them. Also, they all were reigning in Afterlife, guarding it. They played an important role in the life of this world.

Their main role was to guard the Afterlife in Shadowlands, like security for the judging process, because a lot of souls come to Shadowland for their last court, by the grate Arbiter, that decides where should they go next, or rather to whom of all WoW Shadowlands Covenants.

Souls serve to the Covenants to stop being “fallen” and clean their sins, after that some of them will have a chance to become a part of a great army of Afterlife warriors, immortal soldiers that serve to the Covenants. But there are some of them who have too many sins or don’t want to serve at all, these souls will suffer endlessly in the place called the Maw.

The main feature about your soul, that makes you really special is that you are not dead for a real. You can travel between two worlds, the world of the living, and the world of the dead. Another important detail is that you have freedom of choice, and you could decide by yourself, where and to whom of Covenants, you want to go, ordinary fallen souls couldn’t make a choice, because the great Arbiter judges them and say where they have to go.

You have a pretty wide choice because you can choose any of the four Covenants: Kyrian, Venthyr, Night Fae, and Necrolord. They all have unique features and stories, but we recommend learning more details about them before making any decisions and choices. They all have pros and cons, we will tell you about them soon.

When you reach the required level, you will be able to make your choice, to whom you want to serve. Covenants will give you some special ability that depends on what class do you have for now. If you would serve them good enough, they will give you another special reward, that will boost some of your abilities.

Every Covenant has its one source of power – Sanctum. Every Sanctum has a unique design and story, that you can learn for a better understanding of the lore. Also, Covenants have a unique traveling system, and will also share their secrets with you, when you will be ready to join one of them.

We think, that now you have enough general information about WoW Shadowlands Covenants to learn, and you want to learn more about each of them. So let’s move to the list of Covenants in WoW Shadowlands.



These warriors are brave and always ready to rush into the battle for honor, they are honest and industrious, that’s how we can describe Kyrian Covenants. You should be brave and ready to fight for peace in the whole world, serve industriously and be kind, only having all these qualities you can join them and become a great immortal warrior of the Light powers.

They have their base on the first location that you will see after getting to the Shadowlands, their citadel is extremely beautiful, and you will easily find it. Like all other Covenants, they have Sanctum called Elysian Hold. It is their base, so you can have a rest on its’ territory, when you catch enough souls, you should bring them to it, and also it’s a place where you can find some of NPC that will give you quests and from whom you can learn more details about Kyrian Covenants.

Also, you should know about their transport system which will help you to travel wherever you want within Bastion, but it has a long cooldown, after using it you should wait for eight hours before using it again.

The Path of Ascension is a special Covenants’ feature, according to it you will have to choose between three variants: Pelagos, Kleia, and Mikanikos. They all have some special abilities that will help you in your fight for the Light.

Winning a boss is also paid well, so you will get a huge profit if you win. Extra rewards like resources, different cosmetic stuff, some schemes, and upgrades of your Signature skills.



Those who use the power of death and don’t afraid of it at all, are always ready to die, their forces don’t need any rest and include only the most powerful warriors. Warriors of the Death will be guarding the life and peace in Shadowlands. If you want to join them, you have to be really strong, have a steel will, and have an indestructible wish to serve for the Necrolord. If he would let you join his army, you can be sure that your brothers in arms will always be ready to help you and to fight for you to the death.

Necrolords’ Sanctum is called the Seat of Primus, their base is also located there. You can have a rest on its’ territory when you catch enough souls, you should bring them to it, and also it’s a place where you can find some of NPC that will give you quests and from whom you can learn more details about the dark stories of Necrolord history, how powerful he is, and what skeletons in his closet Necrolord hides.

Necrolord uses a unique way of traveling by his Bone Gates, it looks a little bit scary and fantastic, so you can try to find an alternative way of traveling. For example, you can collect some needed stuff, some creativity, and patienceб and use it all on the Abominable Factory. In this factory, you can create something like transport, maybe it will be not so cool as you wish, but it will be still faster than traveling on foot.


You will get two abilities, that Necrolord will give you for serving. Two additional abilities to your setup that could be useful:

Necrolord Class skill – it’s unique and depends on what class do you currently have.



The burden of those who serve to the Venthyr is to look for the souls that have too many sins and don’t want to serve Covenants, you should be patient and ready to forgive them because joining this Covenant your main mission is to save these sinners from the endless suffering in the Maw.

Dark colors, baroque style of buildings, and different items that you can find are all because the Venthyr is a real vampire, all this stuff is a part of his long and dark lore. He can give you some ancient secrets for a good serving, so do your best and you will get your reward.

His kingdom is Revendreth, and you will get used to this dark location, and maybe one day you will love it, with all these strange-looking creatures and vampires around you.
