Alright change to DH's Fodder to the Flame. See it working decently on very little to no mobility bosses.
i dunno, its gonna be hard to beat DH Venthyr and/or Nightfae for the absolute utility and defensive capabilities. Blizz will have to nerf them hard before the other two come close to being worthwhile over the others in real situations ie M+, raid, and arena.
The DH covenant ability is changing as fast and frequently as Spinosaurus image xD (which changed again a few days ago... aquatic doggo :D)
Why do blizz keep working for the good of already overpowered classes? please start solving the problems with warlocks and the problem o their huge CD dependencies! - and UA's and haunts similarity and bad usage! its like they keep not caring at all about a class thats had problems since end legion.... please start working with the problems that are bigger than a class that already has the full toolkit for everything.. it nonsense
Every bit of time spent on Covenant powers is time that could be spent on core class design instead.
So it's an ability that makes you summon a mob that you then have to kill in order to get the buff? I dig the kiss/curse, but no other class gets a kiss/curse, they all only get kissed.
Don't forget the Demon Hunter's passive ability that increases damage by 20% if absorbing a demon's soul. In this case, we have a reliable way to make use of that passive.
Damn, i love Venthyr aesthetic but their ability is pretty much useless for a mage, at least anywhere outside of pvp, which i don't care about.
I am loving the interactivity and lore about learning and using abilities we pick up on our adventures, specifically with certain race, cultures, factions, etc, such as the concept of learning stuff from the shadowlands and incorporating them into our knowledge and arsenal. reminds me of older/other rpgs where you'd only learned a spell after countering a being, such as learning summons in a ff game after battling it, or learning abilities from gym leaders in pokemon, or just about everything else where you have to prove or align yourself to in order to learn an ability. and like in movies where only certain abilites can be learned by certain masters like sw or matrix, etc. having to hone our skills that only exist from being yourself (spec) and being a student / friend of another (covenant). upon using whichever ability you chose to go for, you'll be reminded of what it took for you to be taught that ability, and who / where it came from during your journey. really cool bit of personalization and history for our characters!

Door of Shadows is too unbalanced at the moment, you can even teleport across gaps like between bridges that isn't possible on any class. it will be too advantageous in pvp and m+ like avoiding mob packs
