    Going Night Fae on my DK just because I like the wooden plate armor and other cosmetics.

    The DND ability seems pretty damn useable in most parts of the game for both Frost and Unholy too.

    WW Monk will go Kyrian

    Ret Paladin Maldraxxus

    Hunter - I dunno

    Im honestly considering a reroll to my alt DK from warlock.

    I cant stomach going kyrian with a warlock(not that there is anything wrong with kyrian as it is, it just doesnt fit at all for a warlocks).

    Venthyr and necrolord would fit the theme, but the abilities are either bad, or provide interaction only for a specific build and specific content.
    For example venthyr interacts only wit affliction aoe, aff single target would be clunky with it and the rest of the specs provide zero interaction with the ability.
    Necrolord was just destroyed for warlocks except of demo, but then again I would be probably pigeonholed into demonology that way which is not ideal.

    So I will probably reroll to dk because of covenants -.-
    With a venthyr dk I would fit the theme AND have insane interaction with my toolkit for all specs.

    Yeh no. Their lore pitch is so groan-worthy boring, I have the least interest in them by far. First pick is Venthyr because...it's hammy and I like it. Might level a char just for Venthyr, Maldraxxus and Fae, but Kyrians can go bend themselves lol.

    2nd Restoration Shaman: Necrolord
    3rd Shadow Priest: Necrolord / Venthyr (I prefer the Necrolord skill but I don't want another Necrolord)
    4th Restoration Druid: Necrolord (here we go again...)
    5th Holy Paladin: Kyrian

    I wish I wouldn't be forced to go Necrolord on three or four of my toons, but they're either too strong or just have the best gameplay interaction for me. Nightfae is basically never an option because they suck for most of my specs. Picking the best vs. worst Covenant for a class can result in a 10-15% performance decrease / increase, so to take the "worst" Covenant is absolutely no possibility, although you might prefer the aesthetics (good job Blizzard).
    Not sure what you mean about Nightfae not being an option for any of your specs, it's widely accepted as being the best for resto druids! If you're looking for an opportunity not to have a 4th Necrolord and wanted to experience Nightfae that seems like the best bet.

    Nightfae is overall the least desireable Covenant for most specs and classes as of now, followed by Necrolord. The one time I really wanted to pick it (MW Monk) I couldn't because it's quite weak in comparison. And I know it's the go to pick for Druids, but I absolutely hate the ability. It's the only time when the best choice doesn't match with my personal gameplay enjoyment. I just think the Necrolord ability is overall so much better for my Resto, Feral and Balance gameplay, even if it might be the weaker option overall.

    In all other of my cases Necrolord is the top choice and feels best from a gameplay perspective (for me).

    That's fair, you're absolutely right that most of the time Nightfae just kind of sucks - I'm glad I like the druid ability as it'll give me a chance to play it without gimping myself. It's a shame it's worked out that Necrolord is the best option for most of the characters you want to play, hopefully something will change down the line to give you a bit more variety!

    Best overall covenant for mages is Nightfae

    i plan on skipping the covenant stuff altogether because it doesn't sound interesting and for the last year i've only been doing old content. if shadowlands actually turns out to be fun and engaging (not holding my breath), i'll choose a covenant that matches the character's theme.

    Not sure about that, in the wowhead overview Kyrian is never considered the best for Mages (I'm not a Mage player so that's all I can say about the class). This is what I've found about Mages, so that might be the reason: All of the covenants are extremely close in terms of performance due to how little power they provide, so realistically you can choose what you want.

    I will choose the strongest covenant. Simple as that.

    From the looks of it, Kyrian Monks have a mini lust of sorts. I will test it out but so far the only covenant that I completely scratched out of my list is Necrolords.

    The venthyr ability looks way too cool.

    Regardless, it will be a tough choice.

    From the mage discord, nightfae is the best atm.

    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.

    Kyrian imo is like dating a basic bitch. So Vanilla, so bland, so boring. And unfortunate these are so unbalanced.

    I don't have any endgame aims any longer so whichever looks the most thematic for the rewards and armour.

    Venthyr are a close second.
    Are they the most original? Literal angels in a heaven-like afterlife. Wouldn't call that very original.

    Mostly picking by aesthetic or theme, but if there's an ability I really like maybe that will sway me.

    After going through 3 and half covenant story campaigns in SL beta - I'm fine with picking Kyrian.

    Certainly more interesting than Necros, who are just a bunch of reskinned "Loktar O'gar"s. I also think Kyrian covenant stronghold is the best both functionally with mounts allowed in it and visually. Night Bois are pretty nice too. Necros are just some shitty cave with minimal stuff in it and Vents, while have theme to it - are also inconvenient to navigate.
