In a new community post, Blizzard has outlined some upcoming changes in World of Warcraft for corruption and cloaks.

The overall goal of the update is to ultimately speed up power progression for new level 120 characters. To that end, the post touches on Echoes of Ny’alotha and how they will be far more abundant,

“As we expand the usefulness of Echoes of Ny’alotha, we want to ensure that players who haven’t felt the need to accumulate them don’t feel disadvantaged, so we will be increasing both the droprates of Echoes and their costs by a factor of 5.”

When this rolls out, Major Assault will then reward 625 echoes which is an increase from 125. Essence purchase cost will also increase to 2500 from 500.

Requirements for quest steps in upgrading cloaks will be reduced. Moving forward, each rank will be able to be had in a single Horrific Vision. MOTHER was mentioned as well,

“MOTHER will also offer Vessels of Horrific Visions in exchange for Echoes of Ny’alotha, providing an additional source of access to Horrific Visions that does not require completion of Assaults.”

Regarding corruptions, MOTHER will also offer a random selection of Preserved Containments. The post also offers sample costs of these updated offerings. Check out the full post here.
