Kyrian Covenant

As you journey through the Shadowlands, you will find yourself swept up in the dark tides of the war between the kyrian and Forsworn of Bastion—and your place in kyrian history will not be forgotten.

If you choose to walk in the path of service and pledge yourself to the Kyrian Covenant, the friendships you forged during your time in Bastion will be ready to take the next step.”

Kyrian Covenant Overview

The noble Kyrians live an afterlife devoted to service. They are steadfast in their duty to ferry the souls of the dead from the mortal realm to Oribos in the Shadowlands to be judged and sent to their place in the afterlife. The Kyrian strive for excellence, and always look to prove their worth and valor.

When a soul joins the Kyrian Covenant, they start out as an Aspirant. Through hard work and dedication, they will shed their burdens, earn their wings, and join the ranks of the Ascended.

Kyrian Covenant Abilities

Upon joining the Kyrian Covenant players will gain two abilities, a Signature Covenant Ability and a Class Covenant Ability. The Signature Ability is available to players of any class who are members of the covenant, and the Class Ability is based on which class you play. This means a Kyrian Warrior and a Kyrian Druid will each have the same Covenant Signature Ability and a different Class Ability.

Kyrian Covenant Signature Ability – Summon Steward

The Kyrian Covenant Signature Ability is Summon Steward. It’s a unique ability that will let you call upon your very own Steward to bring you a Phial of Serenity and provide access to a “selection of useful amenities.”

Arguably the coolest thing about your Steward is that you actually get to pick out your own Steward from a selection of them. It will become your personal Steward and be the one that is summoned whenever you use the ability.

Summon Steward Kyrian
Call your steward to bring you a Phial of Serenity that can be consumed to restore 20% health and remove all Curse, Disease, Poison, and Bleed effects.

Your Steward additionally offers access to a selection of useful amenities for 4 min.
