I suspect there are a few reasonable conclusions we could arrive at on how Blizzard will degrade the Artifact system gracefully to make way for a new system. Hopefully, we'll also be able to keep all of the skins we've acquired.
1. We replace Ashbringer with a Green Sword of the Monkey. It just becomes obsolete and remains in our bags.
2. They will introduce a new set of Artifacts to continue with the system, but in order to acquire the new artifact, you must first place the old one in your Order Hall (on display or something). This way they have handled it lore wise, and then systems wise can move you into a new Artifact tree.
3. Part of the starting questline in the new expansion will make us -destroy- our artifacts and remove them. Then we'll get some blue quest weapon to replace it with, this will unlock the leveling content so we'll need to do it before we can progress.
4. We will actually be keeping our Artifacts into the next expansion, but just have more traits or a restructuring similar to the 7.2.5 new traits.
Or something else, or some sort of combination of the above. What are your thoughts?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
