This is soo punishing for mains that had all rank 3 essences - while some alts sits on 40k worth of this (yes, mains with no luck on decent corruption gets a propper setback to alts for a few weeks)
Thanks for making this a separate post from the main Echoes changes one. I read both, but I'm sure plenty will skim the other and miss the big "SPEND NOW" part since yeah, it's gonna be a bit awful if you can and don't right at the changing point.
Unless my math is wrong the values for Rank 3 essences will be increasing at the same rate as Echos. So really it doesn't seem to me to be changing at all. /shrug
why not just use coalescing visions or corrupted mementos as currency since everyone has been able to farm that
To be frank, it &*!@ing blows my mind the way people will complain about anything. Out of the blue, Blizz says "here's a system that is awesome and will take away the RNG, and allow you to gear up alts easier and faster. And btw, the whole cleanse thing, we'll fix that too..we just didn't want you to wait."And out of the wood work come the complainers. Just blows my mind.
The approach they took makes sense, using Echoes as the currency since it has such a limited use, but I would argue that a hard reset would also be good to implement to put everyone on an even playing field once it goes live, however it doesn't matter much if some people have a slight "advantage" with this system, if someone is sitting at a ton of echoes now it probably means that they also played that char a ton as well.Also there is literally no point in complaining about this new vendor system since it is a fair fix to a broken gearing system. There is a huge gap in player corruptions because you can buy your ideal corruptions on AH or be given them by your raid or party which puts a huge gap between casual and more competitive players in terms of gear.Corruption would have been better off if it had been easier to obtain to begin with, and now they finally give us a better alternative for obtaining them which is something we should be happy about.
