Shadowlands Preview: Ardenweald and the Night Fae Covenant

Is this the zone where Blizzard gets to trample on night elf players some more and kill off Tyrande?

Ardenweald is definitely going to be my go-to covenant, and it is not just that this girl is druid. Look at all those BLUES and PURPLES but mostly BLUES. So stunning I love that aesthetic.

I’m a big manly draenei DK, and I’m going with the fae. Don’t care about which abilities each covenant gives. I want that plate armor set so bad!

It does look SO GOOD! So jealous. Leather is kinda lame.

The mail one is underwhelming as well. Looks nothing like mail. Cloth and plate though, top notch.

tirnenn look like shy guys, i really dig it

i like the armor too

I actually really like the new mail set they showed like a week ago.
Glad they redid it.

And this is new? Mail is by far the most disappointing in almost every way, aesthetically speaking.

It’s absolutely stunning. If you’re anything like me you’ll travel with your eyes not on the road, but on the stars.

They mention that druids and hunters are among those who have a bond with nature magic, what about shamans?

(Commentary): Ardenweald may be the best looking of the Shadowlands zones, honestly. Makes me sad I’m taking Exacitor to Bastion, but a society built on the precepts of removing impurities and burdens to achieve perfection just resonates too much with Mechagnomes for me to pass it up. Its basically mechanization without the machines.

Shamans use Elemental.
It’s purposely different, even though they’re similar.
But it does say and others, so it could include Shamans.

Really has some Macbeth “Great Brignam wood” vibes.
And I suppose ent and tirnenn influences.
