In addition to noting that gear will be more heavily themed from the place it comes, Hazzikostas said Blizzard has more customization it wants to feature through the games new Azerite system, which will feature options like enhancing abilities so players can tailor their gear around their specific strengths.
He also pointed out how class sets have come to ultimately limit player choice as theyve evolved over the years. [Now,] its very common to get 2 or 4 pieces at the start of a tier and it actually kind of locks down those character slots, it limits your choices, he explained. It feels like more of a drawback than a strength at this point.
