Echoes of Ny'alotha are a new currency in World of Warcraft in patch 8.3.
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.
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.
When Azerite Essences went account wide, we covered the new system and told you everything you need to know about the new currency Echoes of Ny'alotha.
Patch 8.3 is coming out today!
With patch 8.3 arriving tomorrow, there are several things you can do now to get a running start with respect to loot, your Heart of Azeroth, and grinding your Auction House rivals into a fine paste.
There's a whole host of catch-up gear coming in patch 8.3, available through doing the quests in Uldum and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms as the forces of N'Zoth attack both regions.
Introduced in patch 8.2, Essences for the Heart of Azeroth were unequivocally a great addition to the game.
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.
Azerite has been a major focus and main power system in Battle for Azeroth, but it hasn't fared well.
