Here we are in another edition of "Exploit or clever use of game mechanics"! It seems some twink-oriented communities have found a way to get a very powerful item on their characters very early on, as players have been spotting chars with the Heart of Azeroth as early as level 10!
The trick is pretty simple, but it might be considered an exploit so maybe don't necessarily try it for yourself. All you need is a max level friend to accompany you into a dungeon, get an Azerite item to drop and trade it to you. After a relog this will trigger the HoA quest where you get the level 50 neck, and since it auto-equips, there you have it, an item level 55 piece as early as level 10!
This is quite an advantage in PvP for the lower brackets (especially for twinks who lock their levels), not to mention a very nice boost to general leveling speeds, and Blizzard will probably/hopefully hotfix it pretty soon. It remains to be seen if players who already have their HoA on low levels will get to keep it, and if there will perhaps be actions on the accounts that did this, since the line between exploit and clever use is and always have been pretty arbitrary when it comes to actual suspensions/warnings.

It's time to relax a little between bouts of pre-patch and squish weirdness, as we take a look at all the WoW dances, including the new Allied Race ones. The video also provides sources for the dances themselves with the music in the background!
Personally I'm still mildly to extremely upset that my recent roll of Highmountain Druid gets the same old dace as my Vanilla Tauren did.
We're back with some more pre-patch/squish oddities, this time featuring no-one's favorite necklace, the Heart of Azeroth! It seems leveling the neck up through artifact power can sometimes actually lower its stats, as Benrcs noticed:
While the item level does increase normally, from 150 to 151, the actual stats get lowered. It's not exactly a dramatic change and it doesn't seem to happen for all level increases, but it's still an interesting bug/weird squish consequence. And since we're still in BfA content for a while, and the Heart is a big part of that, it's certainly worth noting. This is also most likely the same bug/issue that's seen certain items of the same item level have different stats, which we've covered earlier.
Now let's see if Benrcs can get his stats down to 0!
