What is Heart of Azeroth?
The Heart of Azeroth is a new artifact given to players from the world soul of Magni Bronzebeard. This artifact is a necklace and it can utilize the power of Azerite. Azerite is a mineral that comes from the essence of the world soul. Azerite is exactly like the Artifact power we use in Legion. Azerite will be needed to upgrade certain pieces of gear. This all seems a little difficult for now, but it will be explained and become easier to understand.
Azeroth is now dying, its essence bleeds to the surface. This essence, is the new resource, Which is called Azerite. Azerite feeds your medallion allowing you to unlock more properties in the armor you will be finding in the high seas. The more powerful your medallion, the more powerful bonuses you can unlock in your armor.
