Heart of Azeroth
The Heart of Azeroth is an Artifact Quality medallion that is a gift from Azeroth and Magni Bronzebeard. Here are the basic details:
You'll carry the Heart of Azeroth throughout the entire expansion. It is the new "Artifact Weapon".
The Heart of Azeroth is empowered by Azerite and will automatically absorb any nearby Azerite. No loss of bag space or time spent clicking!
Once the Heart of Azeroth absorbs enough Azerite, it can level up. Upon reaching certain levels, it will awaken some latent properties in another piece of gear.
Players will be able to unlock new "traits" on pieces of gear when the Heart of Azeroth reaches certain thresholds. This system is very similar to the Netherlight Crucible in terms of choosing traits. Reach a certain level of power, unlock a new trait.
The current plan is that Helm, Shoulders and Chests will be able to be empowered by the Heart of Azeroth
Each of these pieces has 3 rings; each ring has multiple traits on it. When a ring is unlocked, players will be able to choose a single trait to learn.
The outer ring unlocks first and consists of 4 possible choices. The middle ring unlocks second and consists of 3 possible choices. The inner ring unlocks last and consists of 2 possible choices.
A piece with the same name will have the exact same layout of traits -- You'll be able to see it in the Dungeon Journal. No RNG!
However, higher item level pieces will have more powerful traits, but Azerite attuned pieces
Offensive traits will also be paired on the same ring as other offensive traits. Utility traits will always be paired on the same ring as other utility traits. This will create meaningful choices.
Once you choose a trait, the ring will rotate until your choice is at the top!
Magni Bronzebeard gives us the Heart of Azeroth. What are his motives? Some people were speculating that he has an alternate motive and the Old Gods may be involved because he fulfills Il'gynoth's Whispers.
"The King of Diamonds is made a pawn."
“Five keys to open our way. Five torches to light our path.”
“The Lord of Ravens will turn the key.”
For more information and some speculation, check out
the Black Empire post
Azerite will be Battle for Azeroth's version of Artifact Power.
As the suffers and bleeds due to the Horde and Alliance conflict, her life essence bleeds onto the surface and crystallizes in to a powerful substance called Azerite.
The Goblins and Gnomes have developed technology that allows players to determine which islands have Azerite on them and allows for the Island Expeditions feature.
Azerite can be found in nodes, chests, creatures, questgivers, powerful bosses and more!
Azerite can also be gained from World Quests and Dungeons/Raids
Nearby Azerite will be automatically absorbed into the Heart of Azeroth and empower it.
The Heart of Azeroth
In the aftermath of the Legion’s assault on Azeroth, the world is teetering on the brink. As the Horde and the Alliance battle, the very essence of Azeroth is seeping out. It’s up to you to not only defend your faction, but to also defend Azeroth herself.Early on in Battle for Azeroth, Magni Bronzebeard will entrust you with a powerful artifact to wear around your neck throughout your journey: the Heart of Azeroth, which represents the hopes and dreams of the world.
Over the course of the expansion, you’ll encounter Azerite, an incredible new resource that’s appeared in the wake of the Legion’s demise. As you gather this substance, you’ll use it to empower the Heart of Azeroth. Unlike the artifact weapons that heroes wielded in Legion, the Heart of Azeroth is not itself an item that you will customize; instead, it will serve as a source of power that awakens latent properties of some other pieces of armor that you’ll wear throughout your adventures.Speaking of gear, we’ll also be performing another stat “squish,” like we did in Warlords of Draenor, to bring player health and damage numbers down to more comprehensible numbers without affecting players’ actual effectiveness against the foes around them.
