If this is a reward for killing N'zoth, this would be an actually incredible idea for long term progression within a tier. If I knew that I can consistently add sockets to whatever gear I want based on my raids, I would be a lot happier
would be neat if when you cleansed a corrupted item, you got some sort of currency that you could use to buy these and add a socket. not likely, but would be cool.
This seems a decent way to counter the problem of sockets being too powerful, without nerfing them into the ground (like they usually do). So long as they're not too hard to obtain of course (not too easy either of course), then that should be a viable way to progress too. I approve!
you can buy from wrathion
A step in the right direction, but honestly... just bring sockets back for good. There, now you don't have to worry about socket power vs ilevel.
considering that I'm still using a 415 socketed cloak from BoD.....this new item would be a nice addition for me and other people that get F****D by the rng-gods
Wonder if this will work on Azerite armor (helm/shoulders/chest) which normally can't ever have sockets, as well as the Heart of Azeroth neck.
They said we'd be wanting to kill nzoth everyweek, pretty sure this will be a drop from him
Remember killing Archimonde and Argus every week? We got N'Zoth on the line this time.
