Shadowlands offers a new leveling experience with Threads of Fate. This new game mode allows you to level your other characters in the Shadowlands by selecting a Covenant prior to level 60, choosing which zones you want to level up in regardless of level, and earn rewards to benefit your Covenant as you level up. Along the way, you’ll have access to some of your Covenant’s amenities including flight paths, signature abilities, and you can get a head start on earning your Covenant’s Renown by depositing Anima you collect into their reservoir.

Choose Your Destiny

To explore this new adventure-style mode, you must reach level 60 and complete the first chapter of your Covenant Campaign (Kyrian: “Among the Kyrian,” Necrolord: “Loyal to the Primus,” Night Fae: “For Queen and Grove!,” and Venthyr: “Sinfall”). Threads of Fate will become accessible to your level 50 to 59 characters once they complete the quest, “Stand as One” given by Anduin Wrynn during the Maw’s introductory questline. After completing “Stand as One,” you’ll be transported to Oribos where you can speak with Fatescribe Roh-Tahl to choose leveling with the Threads of Fate option.

Tip: Having second thoughts on how you want to progress your new character? You can choose to instead replay the storyline when you speak with Fatescribe Roh-Tahl, however, once you choose Threads of Fate, you can’t go back on it.

Once you’ve selected Threads of Fate, you’ll be instructed to pick any of the four Covenants for your character and choose which zone you want to continue your adventure in. Upon entering one of the zones, you’ll notice that the main story quests will be marked as complete, flight paths will unlock, and you’ll receive a progress bar quest that credits experience. Fill the progress bar by completing any side quests, World Quests, Bonus Objectives, Rare Elites, and defeating dungeon bosses. Note that War Mode won’t offer more bonuses and defeating enemy or random creatures will not grant credit toward the progression bar. After you complete your progression bar quest, return to Fatescribe Roh-Tahl in Oribos to turn it in for a large experience gain and select another zone to complete.

When you reach level 60, you’ll finish your Threads of Fate playthrough and will be able to continue earning Anima and your Covenant’s favor for rewards and prepare for end-game activities.

    Your memory and credibility is indeed as good as Trump's.

    So I'm fairly certain now if you're worried about transmog, don't be. The story quest items seem to be the same models as the items you get from the quests on the map through Threads of Fate. I'm pretty sure they're the same color as well. The weapons you get from ToF are the same ones you get through questing through the zone.

    Also it's my sixth time through the intro Maw part and it's not that bad. It's not as bad as Tanaan jungle that's for sure. You can probably get it done in like 45 minutes. But i've never timed myself. Also everyone has some way to traverse it quickly even if it takes a talent.

    I haven't tested it to make sure, but my main concern with Threads of Fate is you end up skipping the first chapter of your Covenant campaign so in the case of Night Fae you lose out on a mount, and you lose out on a gear piece with the others.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Sad to learn that the XP given is downright pathetic. Being able to spam queues for dungeons as a tank or healer brings more, but to me the act of questing in the open world needs to be the better option for me to bother. Spamming dungeons is simply not fun.

    Hoping they listen soon and make Threads of Fate more rewarding in its open world elements.

    Those are rewards for the 1st chapter of your covenant quest at 60, best of my recollection.

    I can also confirm that Threads of Fate gives you all of the main questline transmog.

    I've been finding Threads of Fate quite refreshing to be honest.

    I am almost lvl 59 and I just got into maldraxxus, I am pretty sure XP wont be a problem.

    I've been doing Threads of Fate without dungeons and it feels slow as hell. I'm 54% finished with my final zone and 5 bars into 58. I forgot what they are called but the bonus quests/challenges or what ever take forever and give like 1-2% per kill unless its an elite. Only good thing about it is the anima.

    Threads of fate... sucks! I highly recommend story mode until you're 59.75 then switch to threads. Threads is so dull.

    Threads of fate levelling might be slightly slower overall but both ways are very close either way. Anima gains from threads is worth it.

    You also get to use covenant abilities in BGs, skirmish and dungeons, leveling through campaign restricts them to your current zone, so if you want to farm honor while leveling, so that you can instantly buy some 358 ilvl gear that's a nice bonus.

    Ah okay! Thank you! As far as I understood it auto-completed the first chapter (which gives you your covenant abilities) but I must've been wrong.

    Note: the transmog doesn't immediately appear in your Collection, but a relog will fix that.
