New Beta Build – Azerite Traits Changes and Additions

Another beta build has arrived, though there aren’t many mistweaver changes in this one. Instead, we get a sniff of upcoming Azerite Traits that will basically replace tier set bonuses. I suspect we’ve only seen the beginning of Azerite traits so far, and there are likely many more to come. But here’s a preview!

Heart of Azeroth – Monk Preview

In Battle for Azeroth, we will say goodbye to our artifacts.
