Hi, I dont have beta access but I have been reading a lot about the covenants. Can someone correct me and teach me something I may or may not be right about.
Covenants are basically a reputation that you work with in order to obtain very specific abilities or enhancements to your spec. Conduits are like talents from that covenant that apply to your spec.
You can never change covenants or conduits?
If what I am reading is true this is by far the worst design ever. To give major buffs and extra talents to your spec that you choose without an option of ever respeccing is just gamebreaking in my opinion.
For instance I love tanking, but if I wanted to go to my dps spec my covenant/conduits would be centered around my tanking spec therefore gimping my dps spec? Same as any other time you may want to swap specs which I am sure a majority of us swap specs constantly.
Please tell me I am wrong because I am not prepared to make 2 to 4 versions of the same character with different specs to play, nor do I want to be locked down to a particular spec and feel that I am not as good if I swap specs.
Lastly, I am sure with the meta we have that if a person swapped specs and their covenants/conduits were for another spec they might have to sit out or not be able to get into that raid or mythic or anything because of this.
Thank you all
