This post is to gather feedback on the design decision behind switching covenant.
disclaimer: I know that shadowland is tightly designed around covenants. However this is something that players have repeatedly been giving feedback about, namely the possibility of switching and not being locked.
If you want all transmog: you need 4 toons per armor type.
If you are a player that want to be optimal in mythic+, raiding, pvp: you cant, create 1 toon for each convenant.
I do not think it will be possible to balance the covenants. Some abilities are just not good enough for some classes and/or not good enough for a majority of encounters.
I wish things were something like:
choose a covenant. unlock it. When you finish unlocking it, you can work on another covenant and unlock it. You can freely switch between the unlocked covenant freely with a 24h cooldown.
For conduits and specs:
one conduit per spec so that switching role players are not penalised by having the wrong conduits or soulbind.
