Through the guilds & communities tab (J), you can create and manage a WoW community, where you’ll also have access to Blizzard Groups. Communities you create are open to same-faction characters from any realm within your region.
Closer to the Heart of Azeroth
It is a long way to heal Azeroth and it will require a powerful new Artifact - the Heart of Azeroth that will allow you to siphon the power of Azerite as you continue to heal the planet, and once it’s empowered, it will level alongside you.
Each piece of Azerite-empowered armor has anywhere from three to four rings of Azerite traits available to unlock as you level up your Heart of Azeroth. As it increases in power, you’ll unlock more rings on your Azerite-empowered items.
Dressing for success
With Azerite-empowered armor, there are a few other things to consider. You no need to worry about choosing powers with those in mind, since these pieces don’t have secondary stats.
Each item has been created with specific powers on them, this is another exciting thing to note for Azerite Armor.
Catching up to the crowd
The Heart of Azeroth will help players keep up with the ever-increasing power curve, this is similar to Artifact Knowledge in Legion.
