So when you pick a covenant, not only are you going to get that ability, your active ability, your Soulbind and talent trees active with it but a whole separate reward scheme that Ely was talking about. There's an armor set that we showed earlier today that makes you look like your Covenant, you get a mount with multiple different colors and then an upgraded version of that mount that you can obtain by doing various different things, it's similar to how there were Artifact skins that were difficult to obtain. We want there to be long term goals for your Covenant.
A covenant specific pet, some of which have specific purposes in the zone. bring out your slime pet in Maldraxus, it has a specific function, where it goes and eats up slime pools and gets you items. We want everything to feel like it interacts more with the world.
Our current idea is that you can switch covenants although there is going to be a cost associated with it. However, you have to be in that covenant to use that covenant's rewards: the abilities, the mounts, etc. It might be something that we can loosen up over time.
