The pacts are one of the most important systems that will be introduced in World of Warcraft Shadowlands. While leveling in the Shadow Lands, you will first learn all four pacts and their special abilities. When you have reached the maximum level 60, you can join one and use its abilities permanently. No matter which pact you choose, you will definitely get two new skills: One is the one Signature ability of the pact, which is granted to all classes, and the second is one Special ability for your class. As a magician, the selection, depending on your talent specialization, can have a decisive impact on which pact you prefer. In addition to the increase in damage and cooldown, it is also important how well the ability can be integrated into your skill rotation.

Below we give you a quick overview. More details will follow as soon as the stats are final.
