One thing that's going to happen in Shadowlands is, we'll eventually shelve our Hearts of Azeroth and no longer have access to them or to the Azerite Traits that depends on them to work.
We've all had this experience -- you log in to review patch notes, skim-skim-skim and wait, what is this weird new thing?
Ever since the concept of Corrupted items was introduced, I've been thinking about the sheer level of RNG it adds into gearing in World of Warcraft.
Azerite has been a major focus and main power system in Battle for Azeroth, but it hasn't fared well.
So, season 2 of Battle for Azeroth opens on Tuesday alongside Battle of Dazar'alor, and with it comes many of the Azerite changes from patch 8.1.
One of the side effects that came with the new Titan Residuum system in patch 8.1 last month was that it could be acquired from any piece of gear, including that not of your own armor type.
I've been critical of Azerite Armor in the past.
