Covenant Troops Have Been Adjusted
Category: General

The mission table has remained a staple side activity in WoW for added story and rewards for several expansions. For Shadowlands, different covenant troops were introduced for each covenant. This was met with its own set of hardships leading to the following hotfixes. Two of the covenants were zipping through missions with no issue, and the other two struggling to complete missions even 5 levels below their followers. Over the weekend, they decided to push a set of hotfixes to bring them more in line with each other.

 

Kyrian Companions

 

  • Apolon’s health has increased by 25% and his ability, Dawnshock, has been buffed by 100%.
  • Bron’s attack has been buffed by 50%.
  • Disciple Kosmas’ health has increased by 20%.
  • Hala has had her health increased by 17%, her auto attacks increased by 50%, and her ability, Resonating Strike, has been buffed by 30%.
  • Ispiron’s attack has been buffed by 33%.
  • Kythekios’ attack has been buffed by 50% and his ability, Whirling Fists, has been buffed by 167%.
  • Molako’s health has increased by 67% and her ability, Purification Ray, has been buffed by 33%.
  •  Nemea’s Attack has been buffed by 33% and her ability, Larion Leap, has been buffed by 50%.
  • Pelagos’ health has increased by 20%.
  • Pelodis’ attack has been buffed by 33% and his ability, Phalanx Flash, has been buffed by 50%.
  • Telethakas’ health has increased by 100% and his ability, Physiker’s Potion, has been buffed by 167%.
  • Teliah’s ability, Shining Spear, has been buffed by 18%.

 

Kyrian was by far one of the weaker covenants when it came to the mission table. Their covenant troops were inferior to the likes of night fae’s and necrolords’ and their companions weren’t strong enough to make the difference. Many of the companions had hard hitting aoe abilities but didn’t have the health pools to live long enough to cast them. In addition, they lack pure healer troops which didn’t help the situation.

 

Also, many Kyrian players were struggling to complete campaign missions until their companions outleveled them by a substantial margin. This has led to a lot of frustration when trying to complete soul ash missions earlier in Shadowlands.

 

Hopefully, these buffs will subsequently bring their covenant troops more in line with the others.

 

Venthyr Companions

 

  • Ayeleth the Deprived has had his health increased by 38% and his ability, Unrelenting Hunger, has been buffed by 43%.
  • Bogdan’s ability, Etiquette Lesson, has been increased by 150%.
  • Dug Gravewell’s health has increased by 14%.
  • General Draven’s health has increased by 25%.
  • Kaletar the Mender has had her health increased by 20% and her ability, Spirits of Rejuvenation, has been buffed by 67%.
  • Lost Sybille has had her health increased by 50% and her ability, Headcrack, has been buffed by 40%.
  • Nadjia the Mistblade’s health has increased by 30%.
  • Nerith Darkblade’s health has increased by 38%.
  • Rahel has had her health increased by 40% and her ability, Slicing Shadows, has been buffed by 100%.
  • Simone’s health has increased by 38%.
  • Stonehead has had his health increased by 25% and his ability, Polite Greeting, has been buffed by 400% but the cooldown was increased to 4 rounds from 2.
  • Stonehuck’s health has increased by 25%.
  • Thela Soulsipper’s health has increased by 38%.
  • Theotar has had his health increased by 25% and his abilities have both been increased by 20%.
  • Vulca has had her health increased by 25% and her ability, Mirrors of Regret, has been buffed by 25%.

 

Venthyr was another covenant heavily struggling with their mission table. Unfortunately, many of their companions didn’t serve the purpose they were set out to and this has led to a lot of failed missions. Unfortunately, Venthyr suffered the same fate as Kyrian, where their companions had massively impactful abilities but lacked the survivability to deploy them. Additionally, their covenant troops also lack a healer which didn't help the situation.

 

Night Fae Covenant Troops

 

  • Ardenweald Trapper’s Bramble Trap ability has been reworked into a 1 round cooldown ability that only reduces the NEXT attack rather than permanently.

 

Blizzard implemented this to correct a bug where Trappers would permanently reduce the damage of an enemy for the remainder of the mission and it stacked. Ultimately, this led to mission bosses doing much less damage than intended and allowed low level followers to breeze through them.

 

Night fae players have had one of the easiest times pressing through the campaign and soul ash missions on the table since launch.  The dreamweaver/trapper strat quickly became a popular way to guarantee a mission’s success. This also led to players breezing through the level 60 missions with followers much lower, around the 26+ bracket. 

 

This hotfix to their covenant troops have left night fae in an awkward spot, now struggling to complete missions much closer to their follower levels. Players who rushed through the campaign are now forced to chuck followers at missions they will knowingly fail for xp.

 

Many players are left wondering what to do with the lack of xp missions now that they’ve pushed their campaign too far. Additionally, we are still getting several more companions through renown and they all start at level 1. In the meantime, we just have to keep failing missions to level them up until a better solution arises. The Dreamweaver strat was extremely overpowered, but now the entire covenant is punished for using the mission table.

Went well
Branden - Went well, the only deduction of stars is for scheduling. I'm generally flexible on time but when someone tells me a time, I expect them to hold themselves to that time, not hours later. But overall, the price was right, the run was good, and I'll be using the service again.
