Matt Goss on Itemization

  • Goal: Bringing excitement back with rare items that drop anywhere in the world.
  • We want to make sure their power is relevant throughout the expansion - we want you to keep them and keep using them.
  • We want to expand their unique effects like class based, role based, or spec based.
  • World drops are now Legendary i.e. the dot can do it's entire effect left on each dot.
  • They are not FULLY random - better ways for you to find them and to target specific ones.
  • Every item that drops can scale up to the best item in the game but the best way to get gear is still through the most difficult content.
  • All Legion items can drop with an increased ilvl.
  • Duplicate personal loot can now be traded.
