I kind of expected the artifact system to stick, glad it's going into an inconsequential item that will work for every spec at once this time.
So, it's AP grinding again. But now we have scenarios dedicated to farming it, and applies to each spec at the same time... I dunno, might be fine.
Hoping to see Old Gods play more of a factor in this xpac later on
I hope that the helm slot gets something like the dragon's breath legendary for fire mages.
I'm actually so excited for this new medallion. I'm very over and done with the artifact grind. Ready for an overhaul! And keen to farm weapons again!
I hope you'll be able to "respec" the thing.
Hopefully it isn't as grindy as the current AP system
I cannot think of a better way to grab what was great about Legion and keep it without the nonsensical extras that were around them. The best from Artifacts + the best from the Legion Legendary system, with no crap for dual-spec'ing, with no potential mistakes while using the bloody AP item on the wrong weapon... The only problem that remains, though, is the non-alt-friendly issue. You'll always want to be logged onto your main, otherwise you're wasting precious AP, and that kinda sucks, tbhEDIT: AP does not stand for "Artifact power" but for "Azerite Points" :D
Hope this eventually has more customization than the current weapon specs.
Gear-upgrades look really nice for early development stage.
Could be interesting. Still waiting to see what becomes of my artifact weapon.
Interested to see how this plays out in game. And, a stat squish was pretty much inevitable at this point.
Interesting, I hope grinding will be more diverse.
Does anyone know if the traits in the armour will be final once chosen or can we change them if we change spec?
hope this is not an endless grind so we can actually complete it
super excited for this expansion! can't wait to be able to play with all the new features implemented and discovery all of the added lore! this one's definitely gonna be interesting that's for sure. gonna miss my artifact weapon tho, was kinda hoping it wouldn't be taken out bc i love my druid skins so hopefully this new thing will allow the druids to keep the skins if they so choose?
Always love how Blizzard is trying to improve their current systems and trying something new
I wonder what the titan relic "trait" in the middle is about, seeing as that also is locked, along with the trait wheels.
I'm tentative about it but according to legion I prefer relying on blizz and wait to see how they improve their current system and make sth new.
It makes sense that they kept some form of the artifact system since it was such an integral part of Legion, I'm glad they condensed it in to one item for all of the specs available to your class. Talent/gear/power choice is important as the developers have said during the Q&As, and it's even better that the items empowered by the Heart of Azeroth cannot titanforge.
