The Heart of Azeroth is an artifact medallion, entrusted to only the worthiest of heroes by Magni Bronzebeard, as a gift from Azeroth herself to the world's protectors. The Heart can absorb Azerite, the very essence of the world-soul which bleeds through the planet's surface, and heal the nascent titan through it. The Heart also empowers its bearer's weapons and armor and grants them new abilities. The helm, shoulders, and chest can unlock special bonuses from this.
The Heart of Azeroth was ultimately used as a conduit in which the powers of the Forge of Origination, empowered by the Engine of Nalak'sha, was fired upon N'Zoth, destroying its body and Ny'alotha.
The Heart of Azeroth does not confer any of its unique Azerite-related bonuses while in the Shadowlands; it functions as a normal necklace, granting only its stats. However, its full functionality is still intact while outside of the Shadowlands.
