If you try to excuse your personal preference by something like "bland" or "original" you are just deluding yourself. Just be honest with yourself and admit that you want to be an endglord tween vamp, an 8-year old's idea of what a metal cover should look like or you like fairies, no shame in that.
    There is so much salt in this post its unreal lol.

    Someone's new to the idea that fantasy takes from fantasy it seems.

    The only vampire like creatures we've seen so far are the San'layn and those pirates in Stormheim. The Night Fae look like the purple emerald dream, but I do think this is the first time they do anything with fairies or fairy like creatures.
    We have had Mal'ganis since wc3 bro.
    Also wc3 night elf had: Wisps, faerie dragons and dryads.

    There is no salt at all, I just find it weird how fixated some people are on shitting on one of 4 covenants when they all are fairly generic. I'd never claim that angels is an original concept, but I certainly don't think vampires are either, even in WoW the concept is around since wrath at least. With the exception of the bug-eyed fairies, of which there are like 5 in all of ardenweald, all the other inhabitants are just a reimagining of the usual satyrs, centaurs and nymphs, most of which have been around since vanilla. Maldraxxus is just flat out the scourge, thats also around since vanilla, technically WC3.

    But maybe I hit a nerve with you, since the talk about sodium levels usually means you've hit someone where it hurts .

    Only thing that keeps me interested on this covenant, as hunter so far, is the resonating arrow and weapon mog
    Yea same here.. when I saw the wings I was dissapointed. I mean its literally some kind of frame attached to your back with short towel in the shape of wings that only move slightly when jumping. Its bad.

    Venthyr have a blood stone heartstone toy that makes you dissapear in blood while a sinstone is circeling around you. I always wanted to get some kind of san layn flight and this is pretty darn close.

    There is a lot of classes where they are close enough that you can choose. Nightfae has situations where its far ahead of the others in for example fire openers or arcane in general.
    I misread your post and confused Kyrian with Nightfae, sorry. You're right, Nightfae is for Mages mostly the best Covenant (for Rogues in cases too, but that's about the Nightfae's "best" status overall).

    On another note, Blizzard just completely destroyed any point Pelagos had to be taken, so many people have to reconsider which Covenant to take, as it won't be Kyrian anymore for most classes / specs.

    I am playing BM and WW Monk, so Kyrian will be my best choice, even after the big nerf on Pelagos by making it a stupid spell dmg reduction, the Cov ability is just pure good for WW Monk in Arena. I tested Venthyr/NF/Necro and it just does not fit well with Monk.

    Also it feels like a Monk class should be with Kyrian.

    Im most likely going night fae on my DH with my alts planned out around the other cov to mainly do their story lines and get gear looks. And while i know a night fae cant use say kyrian armor look now, blizz could change that down the line once we are deeper into shadowlands or even next expac. Really at this point its go with which ever one you enjoy using. If you feel like you have more control of one ability over another then go for it. Think its only the world first guys that will fully penny pinch on the cov and possibly get smacked in the face when more 'fine tuning' comes down the line. And as Blizz said many times you can pick one and then change it right after if you really dont like it. Just going back will be a hassle.

    Pelagos getting trashed is actually a nerf to some classes also, the ones which are dead set on taking Kyrian because of the class ability regardless.

    Luckily for me it just cements Nightfae as the right choice(for now at least)

    Yeah, even as a Warlock. It's not just the most enticing number wise, but also what it lets you do.

    Would you elaborate on why? That covenant ability is SO boring to me

    Most people see the covenants as fire and forget spells and simply want the one that helps them the most in their chosen content. Much like how every other talent is.

  13. #193
    I intend to just pick whichever "theme" feels like it "fits" each Class the best. So Necrolord for my Death Knight, Kyrian if I ever get around to leveling my old Paladin... I'm thinking Ven'thyr for my Blood Elf Mage.

    Just aesthetic. Mage looking like a vampire to me is really nice. But covenant ability for mage is just lazy tbh (on pve)

    I also have a maxed Tauren shaman and a maxed Mag’har shaman, besides the “cuteness” of Pandas, no covenant fits shamans as a class anyways

    Ah, no. I don't really play at a high enough level for my covenant to matter overmuch, so I'll be playing based on character rp or personal preference.
    Be seeing you guys on Bloodsail Buccaneers NA!

    Thats fair. The Nightfae ability, besides being the best numericly atm(at least for fire and arcane) is also kind of interesting to use because it actually changes up your normal gameplay by reducing cooldowns.

If that turns out to be a massively detrimental descision then I'll just stop giving Blizzard my money until they fix their shit. I'm not hurting for games to play right now and the interest in wow of my guild is waning anyway.

    That is the case for almost all my characters, with 1 or 2 exceptions, because I want at least one with the necrolols, despite most of their art being dog shit. I might sacrifice my warlock for that.. the caster armor doesn't look that bad and the ability is, well. workable (far from good though last I checked). While the Plate armor looks okay-ish as well, I simply don't want to be stuck with slappy-hands. That spell is fun in a couple of niche cases but most of the time it's just underwhelming.

    In gernal most of my choices will end up being compromises that won't make me happy in the slightest. Great system Blizzard has going here.
    I like Necrolords for warlock because of that green crystal back transmog they get. Green make warlock look good :B

    Why is that? Monks are Shamans draw on the same power source and the Pandaren mentality meshes well with that of a Shaman!
