Its not RNG, Azerite pieces will all have the same traits. If Hunter1 kills BossA, and gets an Azerite Chest, and Hunter2 also kills BossA, and gets an Azerite chest, they will have the exact same traits.

This reminds me of the Glyph system. Back when you had 3 tiers, sorta like a good, better, best in slot glyph (small, med, and Large). The glyph system was small , slight cosmetic changes, med. slightly better cosmetic changes and the last "Big" glyph actually improved a talent.  They tossed out the old glyph system and this azerite system looks very familiar. Makes me wonder what they have learned from past mistakes.

I'd say that with the artifact weapons / netherlight crucible they already turned the glyph system (aka "Path of the Titans") into what it originally was supposed to be: endgame progression. Though I doubt they really have learned anything, since they once again try for fake choices even though there's always gonna be a best trait. At least they'll remove the RNG, that completely ruined the crucible...

What do you mean by Killing a Boss and getting a trait? So you do not Choose them yourself, you drop them from bosses or what?

Heart of the Azeroth (legendary neckpiece) empowers Azerite armor (Head/Shoulder/Chest items). Azerite armor has traits on it. The gear always has the same traits, but raid difficulties increase the % of its effects.

I'm not sure how it's a 'fake' choice.  Sometimes there are no good options, but usually in everything (talent tiers, gear, etc) there is at least some use outside of one specific 'choice.' 

The only way to fix that would be to make all the talents identical. 
...now THAT sounds fun...



But yes, RNG is crap.  I hope its gone...  but from their PoV it adds replayability.  Chasing the better version.

I'm talking about stuff like giving you a flat bonus on one stat or another, or the stuff they did with the netherlight crucible where you had the choice between, let's say, two offensive traits. One of those will be just flat out better than the other, even if it's marginal, there are clear right and wrong choices here.

Talents are a bit different, since they mostly do more than just giving you a flat bonus, they change your rotation or playstyle, so personal preference becomes more of a factor. You often have talents that reward a more difficult rotation with higher dps, or higher defense vs greater mobility vs self-healing, etc. The reason they reworked the old talent trees into the new system is because there were so many talents that where just "+5% more dmg on this spell". it was kinda dumb, so they just baked it into leveling progression and passive abilities instead of giving you a "fake" choice.

That they brough those kinds of traits back with the artifact was fine, because eventually you would have all traits anyway (it made relics and their bonus traits a bit annoying though). 

Azerite armor is essentially the same as artifact relics minus the RNG element. You look for a piece of armor with a specific set of traits, and then you go down the ideal trait route. There isn't really a choice there as far as I can see apart from choosing traits based on you specific talent choices and playstyle, which does make things just as boring as making everything identical. It's the cookie cutter problem all over again.

The RNG element of the Netherlight crucible gave that.  Some talents were better, as there always will be when the number crunchers get their hands on them.  Some were pretty worthless from most standpoints, as there generally - but not always - seems to always be.

But the next relic you get could be 'the same relic', and still have different traits.  Perhaps the 2nd tier was trash with good last tier, where the new relic has a decent second and a decent third tier choice.  Which you have to watch your pathing on.  There's a choice. 

Just because it's not necessarily the choice you want doesn't mean there isnt one.

      Players with item level 410 and above can queue up and enter Gift of Flesh this week to defeat Shad'har, Drest’agath, and Il'gynoth in LFR for item level 430 loot.
      The third LFR wing of Ny'alotha has opened this week and the final Raid Finder Wing 4 opens March 10.
      Blizzard (Source)
      GIFT OF FLESH
      Shad’har the Insatiable
      One of N’Zoth’s most nightmarish creations, Shad’har the Insatiable feasts on the corrupted carcasses that the Old God’s minions discard into its domain. Tormented by ceaseless hunger, Shad’har’s body twists and mutates with every corpse it devours.
      Drest’agath
      The grotesque amalgam of flesh known as Drest’agath slumbered beneath Ny’alotha for millennia until being awakened by N’Zoth’s return. Now she rises like a revolting boil, ready to burst and spread her vile pestilence across Azeroth.
      Il’gynoth, Corruption Reborn
      Following its defeat in the Emerald Nightmare, Il’gynoth retreated into the depths of Ny’alotha to regain its strength. Now it has fused with the city’s architecture and spreads across the Black Empire like a creeping infestation. As Il’gynoth’s corrupting flesh grows ever larger, so does its power.

      Blizzard has shipped a second encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build two days in a row this week and while we are not able to datamine it just yet due to the missing decryption key, it seems Alpha is coming sometime this week.
      On February 20, Blizzard shipped the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Build 9.0.1.33411. Yesterday, they shipped the second encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Build 9.0.1.33451 Today, they shipped the third encrypted Shadowlands Alpha Build 9.0.1.33480. This makes you probably wonder when to expect Shadowlands Alpha. The ongoing discussion over at MMO-Champion and a clip from Preach's stream, strongly hint at Shadowlands Alpha being announced this week.

      Nothing has been obviously confirmed yet by Blizzard, so take this information with a grain of salt.

      Update: the daily quest Coalescing Visions reward increase was actually a typo and it's now been fixed - it is a 30% increase and not a 50% one.

      The massive February 24th hotfixes are here, featuring both the class and Horrific Vision tuning, as well as Explosive Orb M+ affix changes, Ny'alotha tuning, and even more Horrific Visions changes. In WoW Classic we have Razorgore only save raids to the instance if he was killed after all the eggs were destroyed.
      February 24 (source)
      February 24, 2020
      Classes
      Druid Restoration [With regional restarts] Rejuvenation now costs 10% base mana (was 10.5%). [With regional restarts] Efflorescence now costs 17% base mana (was 21.6%). [With regional restarts] Tranquility direct healing increased 11%. Developers’ note: These changes should improve Restoration Druid’s raid healing output, without much impact to their already strong capabilities in dungeons and Arena. Hunter Marksmanship [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Mage Frost [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Monk Windwalker [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Damage unchanged in PvP. Rogue Outlaw Resolved an issue that could prevent Blade Flurry from damaging some types of creatures in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Shaman Enhancement Damage of all abilities increased by 3%. Warlock Demonology [With regional restarts] Damage of all abilities increased by 5%. Dungeons and Raids
      Mythic Keystone Dungeons Explosive Affix Explosive Orbs again immediately put players into combat. Explosive Orbs can again be tab-targeted. Developers’ note: When testing the Awakened affix, we found that Explosive Orbs could sometimes prevent players from entering or exiting Ny'alotha Spires and Rifts if their party was in combat inside the instance. To solve this issue, we changed them to not place players in combat immediately. However, this had the unintended side effect of breaking player expectations around tab-targeting Explosive Orbs, so we're reverting their threat-generation behavior and trying an alternate solution. Ny’alotha, the Waking City Azeroth's Radiance now properly restores Sanity to players who are under the effects of an Immunity spell on all difficulties. Vexiona Cultists now have their health adjusted based on raid size, up to a maximum 10% reduction for 10-player raids on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Ra-den the Despoiled Resolved an issue that allowed Re-origination Anchors to be attackable with area of effect spells. Horrific Visions
      Research into Synchronized Mind Stabilizer has improved, now always reviving the player with at least half their Sanity. Horrific Vision of Stormwind Magister Umbric now casts Frozen Storm twice during the encounter (was 3 times). Items and Rewards
      Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” The number of Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" quest items required for the rank 13-15 cloak quests has been reduced. Rank 13 now requires 4 Torn Pages (down from 6). Rank 14 now requires 6 Torn Pages (down from 12). Rank 15 now requires 8 Torn Pages (down from 18). Developers’ note: This change should make all the quests completable by most players in the week and not require players to feel the need to save as many keys week to week. Along with our other quality-of-life changes, this should help newer characters catch up with their peers. [With regional restarts] Up to 4 Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 legendary cloak upgrade quests (max of 2). Developers’ note: Players will need to clear more than two side areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. Coalescing Visions Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. [With regional restarts] Visions of N’Zoth daily quests now reward 50% 30% more Coalescing Visions. [With regional restarts] The N’Zoth Assault now rewards 2500 Coalescing Visions (in addition to a Vessel of Horrific Visions). [With regional restarts] Lesser Threats will now reward 6500 Coalescing Visions (was 5500). Heart of Azeroth Reaping Flames (Essence) will no longer have its cooldown reduced to 5 seconds and deal additional damage when killing Twisted Appendages. Player versus Player
      Tank-specialization characters take an additional 50% damage from enemy players (was 40%). Death Knight Blood Death Strike now heals for 12.5% of damage taken when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 25%). Death Strike now heals for a minimum of 3.5% of maximum health when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 7%). Frost, Unholy [With regional restarts] Death Strike now heals for 30% of damage taken when engaged in combat with enemy players (was 40%). [With regional restarts] Death Strikee now heals for a minimum of 5% of maximum health when engaged in combat with enemy players, down from 10%. Mage Arcane [With regional restarts] Prismatic Barrier now absorbs 40% less damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Fire [With regional restarts] Blazing Barrier absorbs 40% less damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Frost [With regional restarts] Ice Barrier absorbs 40% less damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Warlock Affliction, Destruction [With regional restarts] Demon Armor now increases Stamina by 5%, (was 10%). [With regional restarts] Demon Armor now increases Armor by 90% (was 150%). WoW Classic
      Razorgore the Untamed now only saves players to the raid instance if defeated after the eggs have been destroyed.

      For Rank 13, the Quest now requires 4 Torn Pages (was 6). For Rank 14, the Quest now requires 6 Torn Pages (was 12). For Rank 15, the Quest now requires 8 Torn Pages (was 18). Posted previously–
      Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. The Unique(5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like. Up to 4 Torn Pages of “Fear and Flesh” quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2). You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).
