Hello everyone and welcome to the Azerite Trait Analysis for 8.1.0.  For the sims posted in this post, everything is simmed at a Mythic ilvl for Uldir. To see the full list of sim requirements as a baseline check out the GitHub repo. The basics are that we ran every Azerite trait at 1, 2, and 3 ranks with the top simming talent builds for Legacy of the Void and Dark Ascension. In addition, we are publishing data for both composite and single target rankings, as things shift slightly depending on those scenarios. To learn more about composite sims check out the post I made here.

If you would like to use AzeritePowerWeights we have strings you can import in the GitHub Repo. These should also be default in the add-on itself if you have recently updated.

Now that the basics are out of the way here are the results!

Azerite Trait Results – 1, 2, and 3 Ranks

Dark Ascension – Composite

Dark Ascension – Single Target

Dark Ascension – DungeonSlice

Legacy of the Void – Composite

Legacy of the Void – Single Target

Legacy of the Void – DungeonSlice


A few things to call out that might be helpful for reference are the following:

  • All dungeon chart data is based off the WIP/Beta dungeon fight profile from HeroDamage
  • We simmed some intellect increases to help you determine ilvl difference of pieces. For example, if a new helm gives you 50 more intellect, but with different traits, you can use these calculations to determine if something is an upgrade. Check out Djriff’s calculator to help with this decision
  • We also simmed actual Azerite gear pieces to determine which combination of traits from the available gear are the strongest

Important Notes

  • All dungeon chart data is based off the WIP/Beta dungeon fight profile from HeroDamage
  • The charts posted above are updated from Djriff’s Azerite sheet, which automatically pulls data from the GitHub Repo
  • Raw data is published in a WIP prelim state to the GitHub repo. To get the most up to date data you can view that here (not as easy to look at)
  • Big thanks for Seriallos from Raidbots with helping us get these sims done and published much quicker than previous expansions!

I have a hard time udnerstadnign the rankings of the azerite traits. From my understandment of the traits, it seems to me the it is best to get one of each of the top 3 talents, and not to get 3 of the best one. Is that understood correctly?

Publik · September 3, 2018 at 10:38 am

@Rebecca generally speaking that’s not always the case. Stacking the top 3 is totally fine, its more about getting the gear combinations that make the most sense.

hi i have a new helm with the azerite trait stand as one i dont see it in your list this is the helm in question

Tin · September 5, 2018 at 3:41 am

with AzeritePowerWeights will there be a string that could be use in future to make knowing which azerite trait to take easier?

Tin · September 5, 2018 at 3:45 am

will there a AzeritePowerString post in future by any chance

Publik · September 5, 2018 at 11:20 am

@John what helm? We only include dungeon/raid/world boss/rep gear atm so if it is from a world quest it won’t be included

Hello Warcraft Priests!
I have a hard time figuring out whether my newly obtained shoulders 855 Amice of Corrupting Horror beats my current 870 Warcaster’s Arcane Mantle, since I can not find my current mantles in your graphs. I hope you can help 🙂

I just got a piece of gear with liberators might on it, but dont see that listed anywhere on these charts.

Gongshow · October 10, 2018 at 10:56 am

Tried running two stacks of spiteful apparitions with misery and auspicious talented and found they did considerably more damage (I’m at 20% crit), in the realm of 7k whereas they were 2.5-3k before. I was surprised to see it ranked so low in the dungeon composite. Does it assume you don’t have AS talented?

Pper · October 10, 2018 at 11:15 am

Yeah can’t find Liberators Might anywhere either. It’s found on “7th Legionnaire’s Amice” (and other warfront gear, I suppose).

Also you should definitely mention that you absolutely should always wear one piece of armor with either Laser Matrix or Archive of the Titans to get the Reorigination Array in Uldir, otherwise people might skip on those traits entirely.
Outside of Uldir you can switch gear of course.

For me they do not show anymore, is there something wrong or is it just me?
