Choosing Your Purpose ends the level-up portion of the Shadowlands campaign. To reach this point, players must have had made it to max level and completed the four zone storylines. After this is max-level content, starting with the  [Covenant Campaign] and access to the Maw and Torghast.

For alts, this can be the beginning of their leveling experience had they chosen to twist N [50-60] The Threads of Fate.

Objectives

Which Covenant will you join?

Speak to the Covenants. Decide how your path is entwined with the Purpose.

Description

The covenant map between Tal-Inara and Bolvar

First character
Each covenant is vital to the Shadowlands. Though they often seem at odds with one another, this too is part of the Purpose.
All the covenants need to grow strong to face the threat of the Jailer. But your efforts cannot be divided. They must be focused upon a single path. Other mortals may make a different choice.
The time has come for you to take a side.
Speak to your allies. Then make your choice at the map of the Shadowlands before me.
Alts

Speak to your potential allies. Then make your choice at the map of the Shadowlands before me.

Notes

There are two versions of this quest. The first is available to level 60 players who have completed the first four zone storylines. The second is offered to alts at level 50 if they chose to twist N [50-60] The Threads of Fate.

In the area are four characters representing the four covenants, and a number of training dummies. All of the representatives can provide players the covenant signature and class ability to test with.

After speaking with the four representatives, interact with the Shadowlands Covenant Map between Tal-Inara and Bolvar to make a decision.

Tal-Inara will offer the next quest, continuing the Shadowlands campaign:

Make sure to actually pick up the quest before heading to the covenant sanctum!

For alts on the Threads of Fate, Tal-Inara will instead offer N [50-60] Aiding the Shadowlands, which grants a choice to one of the four zones to level through first.
