Night Fae Covenant

In the realm of Ardenweald, where spirits of nature are reborn, you will help shape the fate of the night fae by protecting their sacred groves against the vile Drust.

If you choose to return to this twilit realm as an ally of the Night Fae Covenant, the friendships you cultivated during your time in Ardenweald will be ready to take the next step.”

Night Fae Covenant Overview

The Night Fae of Ardenweald are tasked with an important role in the Shadowlands. They are the guardians of the spirits of nature who’ve left the mortal world to slumber before being reborn again. It is the Night Fae’s job to care for these souls while they slumber and dream.

Anima feeds the groves of Ardenweald and the souls resting in it. Without that Anima, the souls will die. It is up to you to help the Night Fae restore the balance of nature in Ardenweald and bring it back to life.

Night Fae Covenant Abilities

Upon joining the Night Fae 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 Night Fae Warrior and a Night Fae Druid will each have the same Covenant Signature Ability and a different Class Ability.

Night Fae Covenant Signature Ability

The Night Fae Covenant Signature Ability is Soulshape. Upon activating it, you’ll turn into a Vulpin, teleport 15 yards forward, and your movement speed will increase by 50%. This will last for 12 seconds unless you’re in a rested area, where you’ll be able to maintain your new form until you leave the rested area. During the 12 second duration, you’re able to activate Soulshape again to teleport forward another 15 yards every few seconds.

One of the unique things about this ability is you aren’t limited to assuming the form of a Vulpin. There are multiple Soulshape forms you’ll be able to collect that will change your Soulshape cosmetically.

Instant 1.5 min cooldown
Turn into a Vulpin, teleporting 15 yds forward and increasing your movement speed by 50%. You may reactivate Soulshape every few sec to teleport again.

Lasts 12 sec, or indefinitely while in a rest area.

One of the primary rewards for gaining renown are the new Night Fae Covenant armor sets that display your dedication to your Covenant. These appearances can only be earned and worn by members of the Night Fae Covenant. Along with the armor, you’ll also unlock exclusive back attachment appearances to go with your fancy new regalia to use instead of a cloak appearance.

Night Fae Covenant Mount

Shown here are the Enchanted Shadeleaf Runestag (Night Fae Covenant Mount) and the Night Fae Back Attachments, all of which you’ll be able to unlock as you progress in your Renown with the Night Fae.

There are two mounts that you can unlock as a Night Fae player: the Shadeleaf Runestag and the Enchanted Shadeleaf Runestag.

Night Fae Covenant Pet

The Kyrian Covenant Pet is Trootie, a small sprout.

Heart of the Forest – The Night Fae Covenant Sanctum

The Night Fae Covenant’s Sanctum is the Heart of the Forest. This area is only accessible by Night Fae players and will serve as a base of operations for your work with your Covenant. This is likely where you’ll find yourself starting and ending your play sessions during Shadowlands.

Queen’s Conservatory

All members of the Night Fae Covenant can access the Queen’s Conservatory, a celestial garden where they will harness the power of rebirth that flows through Ardenweald to help the souls of ancient deities to return to life.

During your adventures in the Shadowlands, you will come across the preserved souls of celestial spirits from across the cosmos. Within the Queen’s Conservatory you will find the power to aid you in restoring those souls to their former glory.

To do so you will work with the Queen’s Warden to nurture the ancient souls back to strength using the magic of the Wildseeds of Ardenweald. Inside the garden of the Queen’s Conservatory you will have access to two types of plots—the Wildseed Pods themselves, and Catalyst Plots. You can plant different catalysts in the plots connected to each Wildseed to infuse that seed with extra strength. Each type of catalyst will provide a different type of bonus to the regrowth process.

One catalyst might reduce the incubation time required to restore a soul, while others may influence the amount or quality of the reward cache you receive from each restored soul. For once restored to their full strength, the restored deity will show their gratitude with a reward cache, which can contain anything from resources to special cosmetics, such as pets and mounts.

Managing the various Wildseeds and plots allows you to try to maximize the efficiency of your garden. Learning the best ways to use and place your catalysts will be the key to unlocking the true potential of the Queen’s Conservatory.”

The Queen’s Conservatory is like a more in-depth version of the Pandaria farm. You’ll be able to grow and nurture the souls in your care to help them rest until it’s time for them to be reborn again. You’ll be able to collect special rewards from the soul once it is restored to full strength.

Night Fae Anima Conductor

As you collect Anima to help the Night Fae restore the forests of Ardenweald, you’ll be able to choose which areas to direct the Anima to using the Anima Conductor. There are 6 areas you can channel the Anima to, and each area will provide a different reward. Eventually, you’ll be able to permanently restore the area and always have access to the boon that it provides.

  • Glitterfall Basin – Find a unique Covenant treasure.
  • Dreamsong Fenn – Fight an enemy champion.
  • Tirna Vaal – Access a Covenant World Quest.
  • Hibernal Hollow – Access a set of Covenant daily quests.
  • Claw’s Edge – Get access to powerful night fae enhancements.
  • Tirna Scithe – Fight an elite enemy champion.

Night Fae Travel System – Fae Circles

Each Covenant has an exclusive travel system available to them within their home zone. The Night Fae traverse the Ardenweald using Fae Circles, which are mushroom rings all interconnected into the living transportation system provided by a member of the Court of Night known as Marasmius. Only Night Fae players are able to access the Circles, letting them travel around their realm faster than players of other Covenants.

You’ll need to gradually unlock the Fae Circles as you progress in your Covenant campaign, so you won’t have access to them right away. Once you unlock them all, however, you’ll be able to traverse your forest realm of Ardenweald like the wind rustling through the trees.

Night Fae Soulbinds

As you work to further the Night Fae’s goals, you’ll form a bond with powerful members of your Covenant.

Niya

Niya is a sylvar who was tasked with guarding and caring for the wildseeds in her grove, whom you met in a time of tragedy as her grove was left to wither so that its anima could be reclaimed. As she journeyed with you, Niya learned the hard truths of survival admidst the drought. An expert hunter and tracker, her skills will aid resolving the drought, and the other threats to Ardenweald.”

Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver is a calm and serene faerie who’s adept at peering into the dreams of nature spirits who slumber within the forest’s wildseeds as they await their rebirth. Dreamweaver helped you form a bond with one particular wildseed whose sleeping spirit reached out. His healing powers provide support as Ardenweald is besieged by outside forces.”

Korayn

Korayn, a huntress of the Wild Hunt, is a strong-willed leader and ferocious fighter. Tasked with protecting the forest from the most dangerous and elusive threats, she will not rest until her quarry is slain and Ardenweald’s safety is secured. When Hibernal Hollow came under attack, it is Korayn’s leadership and resolve that helped win the day.”
