Which covenant should choose Hunters in Shadowlands?
Covenant for BEAST MASTERY HUNTER in Shadowlands
Since all Hunter specs have the same Covenant priority now, you can consider this note applicable to any of the three specs. While Venthyr was looking to be a strong option for many specs at various points in the Beta, Blizzard EXTREMELY overnerfed it, and now it's by far the worst ability. Despite the Pelagos nerfs, the Kyrian ability has proven to just be very powerful and flexible in multiple forms of damage (ST or AoE), so it's the best go-to pick atm. That said, Necrolord is still a competitive option for all three specs, and Night Fae is very close on AoE. If we see more nerfs to Kyrian in the future, it's entirely possible that Necrolord or Night Fae will pull ahead.
Following the buffs to Night Fae and Necrolord, I've decided to leave all of the hunter covenants as Good since it's too close to call.
