In WoW Shadowlands, players will ally with one of four Covenants. Flickr

The new World of Warcraft expansion brings along a new type of reputation, Renown, to farm. It’s a currency like WoW gold, but you use it for different things. It is also a measure of your progress and standing in your chosen Covenant and you use it to upgrade your Sanctum. You can also use Renown to strengthen Soulbinds. There are four Covenants you can gather Renown for, Kyrian, Necrolords, Night Fae, and Venthyr.


These four Covenants have their own roles and purposes in the Afterlife. As a being who has a foot in both the worlds of the living and dead, you have the choice to align with a Covenant of your choosing.

The Four Covenants

The Kyrian resides in Bastion, and they are in charge of guiding the dead into the afterlife. They value righteousness and virtue and are called to a life of eternal service. Those who aren’t ready for that kind of eternity may still seek the Covenant to lighten their burdens through meditation and reflection.

The Necrolords represent the military of the WoW Shadowlands in Maldraxxus. They value strength and ascribe to the saying ‘survival of the fittest’. To them, the weak deserve failure for their inability to excel. Though that leads to many believing that this Covenant is evil, it is not. Power isn’t inherently evil, it’s how you use it.

The Night Fae in Ardenweald is the counterpart of the Kyrian for powerful nature souls. They also represent the cycle of death and rebirth. They guide these souls for eventual rest and rebirth and their realm is the mirror to the Emerald Dream.

The Venthyr of Revendreth seeks to reform those who have the spark of redemption in otherwise irredeemable souls. These souls then have a choice of either becoming a Punisher for the Covenant or to move on to another.

Gaining Renown

Now that you’ve chosen a Covenant, you can gather Renown for it. Unlike Artifact Power and Azerite Power, you can only farm so much Renown in a week. Don’t be too zealous in farming it or you might waste your effort.

Many activities in WoW Shadowland will reward you with Renown. In fact, merely going through your Covenant’s story already earns you Renown. There are also side missions and tasks to do that will give you the points in question. Besides that, there are weekly raids and callings to do for more Renown. Lastly, you can collect Anima for the Covenants or journey to the Maw to save souls trapped in Torghast tower.

Be careful not to go over the weekly limit too much. You can waste your effort into completing tasks but receive no rewards for it. At any rate, you shouldn’t have to buy WoW gold to complete these tasks with proper prior investments.

Remember to have fun in WoW Shadowlands!

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally. With the new update, if a user chooses to back up his chat history with end-to-end encryption, it will be accessible only to him, and no one will be able to unlock the backup. Neither WhatsApp nor the backup service provider will be able to access their end-to-end encryption backup.
"With end-to-end encrypted backups, no other messaging service at WhatsApp's scale will provide this level of security for people's messages -- from sending and transit, to receiving and storing in the cloud," the company said in a post. The feature will be rolling out "slowly" for people on the latest version of the app.

Keyur Zaveri, VP of Design at Furlenco shares some ideas that could give your home a rich look.

A luxurious house makeover might seem to be an expensive and overwhelming task but it doesn't necessarily have to drill holes in your pocket. A few small changes and the right decor pieces can make a huge difference to the way your home looks. Keyur Zaveri, VP of Design at Furlenco shares some ideas that could give your home a rich look.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
While it may feel intuitive to keep adding expensive decor to your home to give it the luxurious touch, in today's ageless is really more. Simplifying your space can give your home a classy look. Invest in a few accent decor pieces - a lamp, wall art, decor for a centre table that are cohesive and work well together in the theme of your room as opposed to having numerous things that do not look like they belong together. Resist the temptation to buy over-the-top accessories and unnecessary furniture, which make your home look bulky.

India may not see a billion smartphone users even by the end of this decade

India may not see a billion smartphone users even by the end of this decade and there are seven key challenges to achieve 100 per cent smartphone penetration, according to a new report. With the shrinking addressable base for smartphones, India is likely to have 887.4 million smartphone users by 2030, said the report by Gurugram-based market intelligence firm techARC.

The new smartphone user acquisition has been on a decline since 2018, after 4G drove switch to smartphones as it ushered several new use cases and forced feature phone users to upgrade. This, however, is not the case with 5G, which can substantially bring out a new use case for the mobile users compelling the feature phone users to move to a smartphone.

Affordability is the first concern even if users would discover their own use cases. "This is on account of both - investment in the device and the recurring data cost. Even to own a device, it's a substantial increase in the outlay for around 200-250 million users who cannot spent more than Rs 1,500 on a mobile device," said Faisal Kawoosa, Founder and Chief Analyst, techARC.
