Unlocking Covenant Assaults
Because you need to start the Chains of Domination questline to unlock Covenant Assaults, these naturally require level 60 to do.
Covenant Assaults are unlocked after completing Chapter 2 of the Chains of Domination questline,
. Once the chapter is completed, Covenant Assaults will spawn once you pick up the breadcrumb quest
with Bolvar in Korthia. You are able to see which Covenant Assault is currently available by looking at the Shadowlands map, as well as how much time is left on that specific assault.
Once you have unlocked Covenant Assaults, you must then venture to the Maw and reach the specific area that Covenant is attacking. You do NOT need to be part of that specific Covenant to participate on the Assault. The Covenants attack the following areas:
The Kyrian assault

Transport to Covenant Assaults
To get to a Covenant Assault area, you can simply ride there once in the Maw. If you're feeling a bit lazy, the Covenant assaulting the area offers transportation to the staging area - To use the transportation, simply jump to the Maw from Oribos. Once there, turn to the right from the landing point and you will see Covenant NPCs offering a ride. Just click on the ride there and let the mount take you there!
The transportation is not available for the Kyrian assault, since it happens by Zovaal's Cauldron, right next to Ve'nari's Refuge.
Necrolord NPCs offering a Tauralus to Perdition Hold.
In addition to this, if your Covenant is the one currently leading an assault, you will have two-way transportation to the staging area from your Covenant Sanctum! Look for the Assault recruit NPCs by the Travel Network area of your Sanctum and you will see a network portal to the Maw.
Kyrian Covenant members get a gateway from Elysian Hold to the Maw during the Kyrian assault.
Covenant Assault Basics
During each Covenant Assault, you will need to complete four quests given by the Covenant, asking for a variety of tasks at the assault area.
Once all four quests are completed, a final event is triggered, leading you to the commander of the Mawsworn at the area. Once you reach the commander, all you need to do is kill it (or have the event kill the commander depending on what Assault you are on), and this will complete the assault!

Anyone think its weird kyrian Is the only one that doesn't give a mount lol?
The Links for the Achievements are for the PTR server, if you want to update that.
Is already 7.40 pm PT time on Friday .. and the new assault doesn't start. This is another bug Blizzard?
Whoever decided to put dailies within Gorgoa should never work in game development again.
I don't know if something is bugged for me, but I haven't been able to trigger the assaults.
I have completed the Maw Walkers chapter of Chain of domination and nothing else has happened. No auto pop-up quest from Bolivar so I went to him in Oribos and he has nothing for me. What Am I missing? How do I start the assaults?
Can these be completed once per day? Or is it just once per bi-weekly rotation?
Necrolords Assault, quest Putting a Plan Together seems bugged. You have to collect three centurion parts, but only two are accepted. Abandoned quest twice, didn't help. It's the hand that's causing the bug. Submitted it to support, hope they fix it within three days, otherwise assault is lost.
Never saw an extra portal to the assault from the Necro's covenant hall like the rest got. Unless I'm just missing it.
4 weeks without the ring quest o.0
Got All Three Achievements (The Zovaal Shuffle, On the Offensive and Breaking the Chains) but mount isn't available in my journal? Not only I did not get the mount by completing On the Offensive and Breaking the Chains but just find out Achievement isn't Account Bound because I just tried to buy the mount from the Death Advance on my alt and I can't :-(
