I've been critical of Azerite Armor in the past.
In a recent hotfix, Blizzard has changed the rewards from emissary caches in Battle for Azeroth to allow their Azerite Armor to scale up as high as ilevel 370.
While everyone was distracted by Mike Morhaime stepping down as president of Blizzard Entertainment, World of Warcraft CM Lore took to the forums to announce improvements that are coming to the Azerite Armor system.
This post was originally published just for our supporters, but now it's available to everyone.
Blizzard says Azerite armor isn’t the worst itemization in the game’s history, but agrees that it’s pretty close
As defenses of a game system go, this isn't the worst thing you've caught me doing is certainly a novel one.
Just to be frank, I've had difficulties with Azerite Armor pieces.
The moment we were waiting for finally came, and Battle for Azeroth launched earlier this month.
In today's WoW Developer Q&A it was announced that with the next weekly reset, on Tuesday for North America and Wednesday for Europe, a hotfix will go through that will make Azerite gear tradeable to players in your group.
Blizzard has just given us a solid set of details about the Heart of Azeroth, Battle for Azeroth's equivalent of Legion's Artifact weapons. Most importantly, we'll be getting the Heart before Battle for Azeroth launches -- in fact, Magni Bronzebeard will give it to us after the Battle for Lordaeron.
The clock is ticking -- we'll soon be in patch 8.0 and then, a month or so later, we'll be playing Battle for Azeroth.
