I liked sets because of their unique abilities. Everything else is just a stat stick and you want more of X stat and less of Y stat... YAWN.

The downside is that, like Legion artifacts, they are hard to balance. Some are going to be good and some are going to be bad. (or better/worse) I definitely remember past sets that had awful N-piece abilities

Yeah, I mean, set bonuses weren't all rainbows and unicorns. I remember abandoning my Feral druid before Nighthold because the feral set bonus was going to mandate maintaining a 27th DoT. I'd still take that bad for the good, though. It's not like there haven't been plenty of turd azerite traits, like Mitch mentioned. You have "flexibility" in that you can wear gear that has other traits, but I'm still not convinced that it's any less "locked in" than tier sets were given that there's usually one or two traits you want ALL of.
