I kinda hope Azerite traits (or similar) are here to stay

General
Sure, the system needs work, but I really enjoy the "Pick your own bonus" approach.

I always loved to have options in a game, and when the traits are all well balanced, the methode they used for the azerite traits could provide that.

I would really like something in that kind to stay, maybe even be improved by more options...

Anyone else or am I alone with that?
They should have made it so that you unlock more traits to pick from as you go along but can chose any you want.
Like a talent the tree where but you can pick any 3 from it.
There is no doubt the azerite system has potential, I just hope Blizzard unleash that potential before it's too late.

But there is no potential in having to power down to power up.
In legion I grinded world quests all day every day for AP.
Now I don't care at all.

If they dont abandon it after the expansion and keep working on it, it could be one of the best new thing for WoW...
Yes, but needs a lot more options, you can only have 1-2 traits from each azerite peace that affect your performance, while the rest like shields, heals and movement bonuses are almost worthless.
That is very little, hence why old talent trees as well as Artifact trees were great as you could put in points in many traits for small bonuses, you felt like you progressed.
In these kind of systems you need quantity as well, not just quality, the current design is just really bland and makes the whole class boring as a result, there is nothing to progress towards.

the system needs work


This. As of right now it doesn't.

- I have no interest in getting Azerite pieces as loot
- I have no interest in my neck
- The neck makes me feel like I have lost a gear slot
- I am being frustrated by the amount by the amount of Azerite pieces I have in my bags, because I need to swap pices based on what content I am doing and what role I am taking
- All the gear swaps end up messing up my saved item sets for the various roles, because I have to save my set every time I get a new piece, and I have to save each set manually. I've lost count of how many times I have been wearing the wrong items because of all the swapping.
- I have to check websites way too often to figure out what traits I am better off using.
- I want traits to swap based on your spec, so you can select one trait for each role, on one piece of gear

Ok, I dont think we will ever get along, because most of these are exactly what I wish WoW would have more.

I was one of the people who back then actually like to have a different set for DPS and Healing...

1 set pr. role is fine with me. However, I've currently got 2 sets pr. role(could possibly have more), and I need to take the Azerite pieces AND stats on ordinary gear into account. My bags are a freaking mess, and I usually can't get rid of the pieces I take out of all my sets, straight away, so they have to take up space until I can find a vendor/scrapper which I usually don't have access to in dungeons. This means that next time I swap spec, and equip my saved set for that spec, I end up equipping the outdated piece(s) that I might have forgot to vendor/scrap the last time I had the oportunity(Yes, I don't always remember that I replaced a piece, when I have left the dungeon/raid). Sometimes I don't notice this for a while. Sure, it's all on me, but the ingame system doesn't exactly make my job easy.

Just having the Azerite pieces swap traits based on the spec you are in, would help the situation.
Azerite system is floored on so many levels , 3 pieces head, shoulders and chest. The choice is pointless as the trait is random to a degree, the spec is locked to 1 spec so you need 3 pieces per spec. If your a druid that's 12 pieces of armor and so on with other classes. The gear score aspect is random as well a 340 piece is better than a 370 gear score because of the trait sometimes. Shall I go on or do you need more evidence that the whole azurite system needs to be scrapped. The advice I shall give look at Bellulargaming or other streamers as they have covered this on so many levels. Also they have come up with better ideas. The reason that the game is in a bad state is of the azurite system. You may remember a post on the usa forum a few weeks ago about the azurite system which coursed the stir look at that as well, the OP covered it very well and the pit falls if it continued.

A reasonable effort at a troll post as well.

Ah, that problem is solved very easy.

Get the following pet from your local Guild Vendor:

https://www.wowhead.com/item=65362/guild-page#sold-by

This pet allows you to sell stuff. Sadly it has a long Cooldown, but you only need him if you have to sell stuff while indoors anyway.

I would have a better solution, but you would have to be an engineer for that. ( https://www.wowhead.com/spell=55252/scrapbot-construction-kit )

In case that isnt enough for you, you can also try to get the lost mail Item in Dalaran: https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=134859/lost-mail

This will start a quest chain that gives you the toy katys stampwhistle
https://ptr.wowhead.com/item=156833/katys-stampwhistle

which gives you a mobile mailbox, so you can just mail the stuff you want to sell to a twink to get it out of your bag.

I hope I could help you

Have it already. Even got it on my bars. Doesn't seem to help(tho in Uldir I try to get my Yak up whenever in the hallways). Not getting to vendor/scrap is just a small part of the problem above though.

Have Katy Stampwhistle too, but thanks for the tips :)

I did a little looking up to see if I could find anything else to help you, but sadly the really good indoor vendor Items are Engineer exclusive...

However, there is a better version of the Guild Page, the Guild Herald ( https://www.wowhead.com/item=65364/guild-herald#comments ).

It only has half the Cooldown, but your guild has to have the Achievement Profit Sharing for you to buy him.

Bought both and tested it, sadly they share Cooldown. But hey, 4h CD instead of 8 is at least a step forward. If I find anthing else, I will let you know.

There's a way to farm dungeons while you're in a scenario, and you can easily sell your loot going back to it after. I'm not so good at explaining but this video tells you how to do it.

OnT: Azerite system is really really boring imo. I loved the legendary weapons from Legion. Necklace! *blah*
