A recent interview with World of Warcraft’s Ion Hazzikostas has provided some additional information on Conduits and more.
The interview, conducted by YouTube channel Bellular Gaming, primarily focuses on Soulbinds and Conduits. The length of the interview comes in just under 30 minutes, but nevertheless contains some solid information.
For example, the way Conduits can be earned will be through dungeons, raid bosses, PvP, and vendors. These Conduits will not drop, however, they will be a bonus drop of sorts. The fact that Conduits are consumables was brought up.
To that end, Ian touches on how making the Conduits swappable would have presented a problem with inventory management and made it a pain. However, the real reason, it seems, is due to customizing your character.
Additionally, since Conduits are different to relics, it sounds like there may be three Soulbinds with each Soulbind containing different paths which can lead to several different and unique loadouts. From this standpoint, the customization of Conduits may be more palpable.
The question was brought up regarding requiring different specs to use different Soulbinds for Conduits. In short, this seems like it is indeed the case. However, it sounds like if you take the time to customize your Soulbinds for each of your specs, you should be able to respec should you wish out and about in the world.
