ESTNN's simple guide breaks down the best covenants for each classs to improve your Shadowlands experience.


Making the right covenant choice is important for those looking to achieve an extra 1% from their class. This guide will help you make that decision whether you want to raid or do some Mythic +.

You wouldn’t think picking between four covenants would be hard, yet somehow, WoW finds a way. Now, picking the best covenant is easy, in theory. Find the one that suits your style or does the most damage and stick with it. You just need to factor in nerfs/buffs, and the fact that changing covenant takes time. Oh, and don’t forget about how annoying it is to change back to a covenant you previously left.

For now, let’s not worry too much about all that, and keep this simple.
