  • New content - new lands. Very different from what we have seen in Azeroth.
  • Not factions; covenants (4). Grant powers after you allege with them (1 generic, 1 class specific).
  • Soulbinds - bind to a soul for another new ability/aura/something
  • Level squish
  • The Maw (deadly open-world zone) and The Tower (ever changing dungeon 1-5 person exp)
  • Building Legendaries - moving towards deterministic gearing?
  • Nothing PVP specific

Esports

WOW Q&A

  • Q: How do you choose between aesthetic of a covenant as opposed to min maxing the best covenant, especially for PvP?
    • A: Lots of things can be tuned - we kind of took the outlook that choosing a covenant is like choosing a class - lots of viability but choice has to matter. The active abilities is one thing but the soulbinds, etc count. This should be taken as a whole but also there will be lots of tuning knobs. We will not hesitate to disable things in PvP (i.e. Curse of Doom in Classic).
