This is a good change, but still a little smaller than I was hoping for. I was expecting a straight 15 ilvl jump per difficulty, i.e. normal 400, heroic 415 and so on. With the raid still being another month out I fully expect players to still outgear this raid by release. Gonna be a lot of players getting heroic drops with lower ilvl than they're currently wearing.
The items are very situational in my opinion and i cant see any use on them without secondary stats.We will see.
The life of this raid seems very small. Run it for a month until everyone has their gear, and then why?
I've been pretty unimpressed with BFA but them stepping away from the lazy route of just having primary stat, stamina and 1 or 2 secondary stats in favor of items with effects (that you don’t need to grind or regrind just to unlock, Azerite armor...) is a step in the right direction.
No weapon drops? Come on...
