On my Warrior, it just has Dps and Tank as possible roles.
So initially, I used generic Azerite traits that worked for both these roles, like Dagger in the Back, until I was able to collect pieces for each individual spec.
Though not the most beneficial to a tank’s survivability… Dagger in the Back at least functions across all a Warrior’s specs.
Problem: Some of the generic traits don’t function for healers. Meaning for many hybrids (Or players who intended to play multiple roles often) it comes down to a choice of; Do I choose the trait that makes me heal better but doesn’t function for any other spec or the trait that at least functions for 3/4 of my specs but doesn’t help me heal at all?
E.g. Battlefield Precision or Dagger in the Back.
Blizz, you’ve put Multi-role classes in a really sucky situation. Learn to do better, please.
I play my Druid and Paladin alts often. But neither yet has enough high ilvl azerite pieces to have a helm/shoulders/chest to dedicate towards each role. Let alone, a set I can dedicate towards each spec.
And it feels awful. Eventually I may reach the point where I have a set of azerite gear with healing traits that function for my healing spec, while I also have a set of other traits that function for my Dps/Tank specs. But I have yet to reach that point.
And in the interim, it feels horrible to play a healing spec with non-functioning traits. The only alternative being, to choose traits that function for my healing spec but do not function for 3/4 of my other specs. Another bad situation.
I dislike the Azerite system.
