Didn't they say the requirements would not be increasing for HoA level on Azerite gear? Or does that exclude the empowerment at the center
Apparently it does. It's fine i guess.
They added this only because of MethodCayna And fleks the Hydra
they said "all traits will be unlocked", and they held their word.
I like this result. It would feel horrible to currently have traits, only to lose them for a higher ilvl piece, because the HoA levels were raised. This keeps our traits, and still gives us something to work towards with the HoA levels. The Empowerment is neither so powerful that one feels they can't do content without grinding for it, or so terrible that there is no point in grinding for it.
Finally ! This is amazing news. Also, having the heart of azeroth directly upgraded to lvl 35 is gonna be a huge boost for 110/119 alts (or is the level increase once 120 ?)
Still gonna take a couple of weeks to get to 50. Bit surprised they didn't just set all characters to level 50 and balance from there on. 35 is better than nothing but still multiple weeks of grinding for new alts, and despite what Blizzard expected not everyone has been grinding their necklaces to 50 before 8.2 hits.Azerite has been a bit better than Artifact Power in most ways but the catch-up isn't quite as good. Not that it really matters too much; if you aren't level 50 you probably don't need to be on the cutting edge.
Yeah, I would guess that you get to unlock essences, but still need to work up the actual heart level despite this.
Can anyone confirm that the neck gets boosted at 120?
there a quest that you done the unlocks your major slot it is this quest that on the ptr also made you 35 in the neck and irc it is going live too
"All Heart of Azeroths will be autoleveled to level 35 in Rise of Azshara, if the character's neck is below that level."This also means that every new char after 8.2 patch will start with Heart of Azeroth at level 35?Or it's something like a 'bonus' for who is currently playing?
While im not sure if it will automatically get boosted, you are currently able to immediately go and boost it with Magni.
what about the "all traits will come unlocked in 8.2"? another lie?
