UPDATED July 29
In the next Beta build, we’ve made some changes to the Night Fae’s Signature Ability, Soulshape. These changes are aimed at addressing the feedback we’ve heard from you, and echoed in our own playtesting, that Soulshape simply doesn’t feel powerful enough.
- Flicker – Soulshape’s teleport effect – now teleports you 15 yards forward (up from 10 yards).
- Activating Soulshape will now immediately cast Flicker, teleporting you and putting Flicker on cooldown.
- Soulshape now increases movement speed by 50% (up from 30%).
We’ve also fixed a number of issues with how Soulshape interacts with Druid shapeshift forms. For Druids, Soulshape will now behave like a real shapeshift form. If a Druid is in Cat Form and activates Soulshape, their action bar will change to the default bar instead of remaining on the Cat Form bar. Additionally, Soulshape will remember what form the Druid was in when activated, and return them to that form when Soulshape ends (unless the Druid manually activates a different Shapeshift). In this example, when Soulshape expires or is canceled, the Druid would automatically go back to Cat Form.
Thank you for your feedback thus far! We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this update to Soulshape.
In this thread, we’re discussing all aspects of the Night Fae Covenant systems coming in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.
This initial post will be updated periodically throughout the Shadowlands test. Please check back here for information about further updates to this Covenant as they are made.
Thank you for your testing and feedback!
