Game Crash Upon Switching Shadowlands Covenants Results in Learning Both Sets of Abilities
found himself subject to a gamebreaking bug upon crashing after swapping covenants from Necrolord to Venthyr, resulting in his Death Knight Malhaius gaining access to both covenants abilities at the same time! In a video uploaded to youtube, he shows his recently Venthyr aligned Death Knight using
one after another.
While we don't know exactly what happened to cause the bug, it's probably for the best that it isn't easily reproducible by other players, as it is clearly a major bug! At the time of posting the video, his ticket had not been answered and the issue had not yet been resolved, although he has since streamed on Twitch and doesn't appear to access all four abilities anymore, implying that it may have since been fixed.
So yeah. I swapped covenant and somehow after a sudden crash I have access to all Venthyr AND Necrolord abilities at the same time.
** As of the time of this upload, the ticket I have opened to Blizzard has been up for more than 12 hours, with no response. I don't want you to think I am enjoying this shit. I want my case resolved, and the issue known and fixed !
In the screenshots, you can see the Death Knight channeling
while preparing to cast
, and later casting
is in progress, all with the Venthyr covenant icon on the minimap.
Interestingly, this bug does show that players are able to use multiple covenant abilities at the same time, which
hint toward a future in which players gain access to more than one covenants ability or abilities of a covenant other than their own, but certainly shouldn't be taken as proof of the fact that it
happen. The inability to combine their favorite cosmetic covenant with their desired covenant's abilities was a common complaint throughout the beta process, and so anything to help mitigate that restriction would be highly desired by many players. As it currently stands however, this appears to be just a one-time novelty.
