Ability to Skip 9.0 Covenant Campaigns Removed from Patch 9.1.5 - Soulbind Skip Available Instead
One of the promised features of Patch 9.1.5 was the possibility of skipping the 9.0 Covenant Campaign storyline. However, this feature was never testable on the PTR, and it has been discovered that the Covenant Storyline skip is no longer being added on the Patch arriving next Tuesday. For more information on what is arriving in Patch 9.1.5, check our patch overview!
Patch 9.1.5 Shadowlands Content Overview
Disclaimer: You're still able to skip Chapters 1 and 2 of 9.0 to start Korthia and 9.1 content. Not being able to skip the full 9.0 Covenant Campaign in Patch 9.1.5 only locks your characters out of the following:
The Campaign transmog sets that are received after completing certain chapters;
The ability to progress past Chapter 3 of the 9.1 Covenant Storyline.
Instead of the Covenant Storyline skip, there is now a Soulbind skip, which means that for as long as you have completed the Covenant Storyline for that Covenant at least once on your account, you will be able to obtain all three available Soulbinds for that Covenant!
To enable to Soulbind Skip, you must join a new Covenant and either complete or choose to skip Chapter 1 of the 9.0 Covenant Campaign. Once you finish the short questline that binds you to the first Soulbind, the other two Soulbinds will appear by the Forge of Bonds with their respective binding quests! These quests will also grant the respective mission table follower and soulbinding achievement.
Dreamweaver and Korayn with their binding quests after binding with Niya for a Night Fae character.
To enable the soulbind skip, you must log at least once on a character that has previously completed that Covenant's 9.0 storyline and unlocked all three soulbinds.
Although there is no longer a Covenant story skip coming in Patch 9.1.5, the main reason someone would want to fast complete the storyline would be to earn their soulbinds, with the third and final soulbind locked behind the last chapter of the 9.0.
You still need to complete the entire 9.0 storyline on that character to enable the Patch 9.1 Covenant Storyline chapter 4 and beyond. But you do not need to complete the storyline to reach maximum Renown eventually, so the only thing you're missing, in the long run, is some anima and one of the 9.0 transmog sets.
