A bandaid is better than an amputation, so good on them I guess.
Hopefully if you've already done your old covenant's quest this week you dont still have to wait for next week for this to be of any use.
is this gonna work for people that have already started the rejoin process?
or they could just, you know, completely drop the restrictions like the entire playerbase wants.
just make this baseline :)
Wow! What's next? They'll restore conduit energy to full for everybody?

Ret has been pretty competitive as venthyr and I really liked the vibe and transmog for it so I've been playing as venthyr for all of 9.0. Got a ton of sanctum upgrades and have all my followers leveled pretty high, I've also progressed through the ember court quite a bit. Not to mention ashen hallow is a really awesome cooldown that I love playing with.Now with 9.1 pretty much every guide is calling kyrian for ret—last patch they were pretty neck-and-neck but now with new conduits/legendaries/etc., kyrian is blowing venthyr out of the water. I'm likely not going to swap because of how much progress I'd lose, but it is going to suck knowing that I'm playing a weaker covenant. I'm not a min/maxer so it's not the end of the world but still—it's definitely a disadvantage that doesn't feel good.
umm, why does this feel like an after thought?Wasn't this, players wanting to switch covenants due to changes of a major patch, discussed internally by the Dev Team ahead of time?Did they just not have a plan going into the patch? Why the heck is this kinda thing a hotfix? I just genuinely don't understand what is going on with the game design.
Or just get rid of that stupid stuff along withconduit energyaoe capand yayeveryone is happy
It's absurd that they can openly acknowledge how bad this system is and still only provide a one time fix.
Wow, how curious that this comes within 48 hours of support repeatably telling me it's actually "impossible" for them to change covenants or reset quest status related to covenants on characters.
Literally completed "Prove Your Worth" today to switch back to Venthyr. Hopefully this change will help us avoid the weekly wait to actually switch back.
This doesn’t even make sense lore-wise. If anything, the game has shown us that all 4 covenants are staunch allies. Surely they would share their abilities with each other.
This just feels like a pitiful olive branch. I can understand the “locking” to one covenant and the ability for each (and there should be no such thing as conduit energy). But the going back to a covenant if you left it should be as quick as joining a fresh new one. No need for weekly lockouts.
