Me and my numerous alts are very grateful for this buff.
This is nice!
Instead of increasing the chance of mount drop from the islands they are simply changing some random azerite numbers.Typical Blezzort, GJ.
It looks like azeroth humming louder now.
What about paragon chests?
band aids for a crap system
This isn't very surprising - in fact, I was expecting an AP bump from more than a couple non-repeatable sources.Nobody likes the original Azerite design, not even Blizzard, and the focus is now on essences rather than the path of unlocking traits one by one on your gear. This isn't any different than the enormous AK jump after 7.2, other than it's way smaller. Hope there's more AP buffs on the way.
It's probably just to help Alt's get up to speed since the new essence thing needs lvl 50+ (or players returning). Plus the increase in AP needed to go up levels past 50 I suspect.
I very much like this change!
I think it's great for alts, but if you're already at level 50 (and I assume by now most people are) this won't affect you. Why aren't they offering gold or other type of reward if your neck piece can't take any more azerite? I've already stopped doing some world quests because I don't need the azerite.
How about giving finally people that have lvl 50 neck for weeks some kind of reward? My alt that is 2 weeks old has neck lvl 47 already by just doing weekly stuff pretty much + emissaries. Useless change.
If you don't have a level 50 (or close) neck by now, then not sure what to say. Even on Fresh 110s, it does not take that long to max out anymore...Regardless, the major essence trait will be unlocked at level 1 of neck. All this points to is AP costs for next set of neck unlocks will be extremely expensive, likely greater than the proportional percentage increase of the rewards for emissaries and IE 8.2... Enjoy the grind, once more.
