World of Warcraft Details Its Threads Of Fate Feature For Shadowlands Players In New Post

For those playing Shadowlands but want a non-linear way to experience the expansion a second time around, Blizzard might just have what you need to get the most out of your World of Warcraft journey thanks to its Threads of Fate feature.

As most expansions go, Shadowlands follows a pretty defined course, with players moving from one region to the next on their journey to level 60. For those who complete that journey, as well as the first chapter of their Covenant Campaign, you'll unlock the Threads of Fate mode on your subsequent characters. 

As such, if you're leveling an alt and just want to bounce around the zones in your own order, as well as earn rewards towards your Covenant whilst you level up, Threads of Fate is the way to go. Blizzard explains the mode thusly:

Once you’ve selected Threads of Fate, you’ll be instructed to pick any of the four Covenants for your character and choose which zone you want to continue your adventure in. Upon entering one of the zones, you’ll notice that the main story quests will be marked as complete, flight paths will unlock, and you’ll receive a progress bar quest that credits experience. Fill the progress bar by completing any side quests, World Quests, Bonus Objectives, Rare Elites, and defeating dungeon bosses. Note that War Mode won’t offer more bonuses and defeating enemy or random creatures will not grant credit toward the progression bar. After you complete your progression bar quest, return to Fatescribe Roh-Tahl in Oribos to turn it in for a large experience gain and select another zone to complete.

It's a cool way to level alts if you're looking to do so while not getting burnt out by doing the same things over and over again in the same order. While you'll still have to endure The Maw when you get to the Shadowlands with your new character, the entire expansion opens up to you once you've selected Threads of Fate in Oribos. 

Are you planning on checking out the Threads of Fate for your alts? Let us know in the comments below.
