A bit back, Blizzard devs mentioned that there would be some changes coming to World of Warcraft’s Azerite Armor system, and according to a tweet posted earlier today, one of those changes is now live. As a result of the change, Azerite Armor caches received as Emissary rewards now “can scale up to item level 370, based on your overall average item level.” This should be a welcome change to players who have been having a hard time getting Azerite Armor upgrades.
Unfortunately, however, based on numerous responses to the tweet in question, it would appear that the system isn’t quite working as intended — or, alternatively, that it’s working as intended and was just questionably designed. Many players have tweeted and posted screenshots demonstrating that they are still receiving Azerite Armor caches well below their average item levels. There’s no word from Blizzard yet regarding whether this is a bug or the intended behavior, so we can only hope that it’s the former and that a fix will be coming soon. In the entirely possible event that the devs don’t provide an answer between now and Thursday, perhaps players can get some clarification during the next live developer Q&A with Game Director Ion Hazzikostas, which will be happening on Twitch this Thursday, October 11th, at 2:00 p.m. EDT.
