How do you feel about the changes to Corruption and Legendary cloak catch-up mechanics?
Blizzard surprised us all this week by announcing changes to Corruption and Echoes of Ny'alotha, as well as to how quickly you could level up your Legendary Cloak, and then almost immediately hotfixing some of those changes live.
New catch-up mechanics let you buy the Corruption you want and upgrade your cloak faster
Starting this week, you'll be able to buy specific types of Corruption to apply to gear, removing the randomness from the system — and making it a lot easier for new 120s to gear up.

Introduced in patch 8.2, Essences for the Heart of Azeroth were unequivocally a great addition to the game.
In patch 8.3 Formless Void Essence lets you copy Essences from other players
It's a tradition in World of Warcraft going all the way back to Cataclysm and the Dragon Soul raid that the last raid -- especially if it has any sort of Old God theme like Dragon Soul or Siege of Orgrimmar did -- will have weird items with unusual procs and powers that fit the theme of chaos, madness, and corruption of those selfsame Old Gods.
Blizzard has improved the Azerite progression system, but it’s still a frustrating mess
