A new World of Warcraft preview looks at Shadowlands’ Revendreth and the Venthyr Covenant.

Revendreth is described as a realm currently experiencing a rebellion of sorts. Upon visiting this place, everyone receives a sinstone,

“All souls who are sent to Revendreth receive a Sinstone. Any misdeeds you’ve committed in life are inscribed upon this tombstone along with your true name. Keep its location secret and do what you must to purge any vile thing etched upon it.”

Revendreth is comprised of several districts and denizens. The Venthyr are one such faction and yup, you guessed it, they’re vampires. Described as punishers of the unworthy, the Venthyr are viewed as an “instrument of repentance,”

“Souls who are successfully rehabilitated are either sent to another realm to serve for eternity or may choose to become a Venthyr and continue the cycle as an instrument of repentance.”

Joining this faction nets you two unique abilities. One of these will be a class ability for combat, whereas the other will be a signature ability. The signature ability for the Venthyr is called Door of Shadows, “Wend through the shadows, appearing at the targeted location.”
