Heirlooms=No azerite on leveling characters. How do we feel about that?

Do we feel that Blizzard should, I don’t know, have the 110-120 heirloom shoulders, chest and helm be… beefier as they scale?

Everyone leveling next to anyone basically will have to accept that they straight up aren’t wearing azerite. No one has any right to ask anyone to give up 30% XP, and yet… I mean I am certainly glad I won’t be healing azerite-less tanks in dungeons (because I’ll be queueing DPS for that very reason), that’s for sure.

Azerite Traits while leveling I think don’t really account for much dps. Also the heirloom pieces still have the usual secondary stats so it should be a little under the value a Azerite piece would give while leveling. Considering your time to kill mobs won’t be too affected the trade would be worth it for the bonus xp.

TL;DR: Yeah they won’t have Azerite but the bonus xp is the point of them. I can’t imagine you’d notice too much of a difference but if you’re testing it on the PTR please let us know how it feels.
