* wowhead made a guide to horrific visions.  In addition to being the only way to upgrade the cloak, it looks like a solo path to a high gear level, possibly only five item levels below mythic raid drops--though getting to that point will will probably take quite a while.  The overall structure feels off-kilter to me, and I wonder if there is a limit-and-catch-up mechanism that isn't currently visible on the PTR.
It looks like such a mechanism came in just under the wire: the maximum rank of the cloak will be capped at 5 in week one, 6 in week two, etc..  So it won't be possible to get the cloak to max rank until week 11 of the patch.  It's possible (and allegedly not difficult) to do each cloak upgrade quest in one horrific vision run, so being able to do up to three visions each week is a lot of slack.

There is another dimension of the cloak grind, which is corrupted mementos fueling titanic research and later being spent on adding sockets to gear.  There's no obvious limit-and-catch-up on that.

Also, bloodmallet.com can now chart corruption benefits by DPS per point of corruption, and wowhead class guides have been updated to talk about recommended corruption bonuses and the new essences.

This reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/wow/comments/eqkjaj/macro_to_help_others_by_announcing_rares/  has a great macro instead of running a mod to announce rares in the invasions.  The actual macro is
Code: [Select]
/run a=UnitName('target');b=C_Map.GetPlayerMapPosition(C_Map.GetBestMapForUnit('player'),'player');SendChatMessage(a..' at '..floor(b.x*100)..' '..floor(b.y*100)..' with '..floor(UnitHealth('target')/UnitHealthMax('target')*100)..'%','CHANNEL',nil,1);

With today's reset, Blizzard has substantially increased the rewards from N'Zoth assault dailies. This will make getting to exalted and earning Vessel of Horrific Visions much more bearable. Here are the new numbers:
    Daily Assault Quests
        Now reward 250 Coalescing Visions (up from 50)
            War mode rewards 275 Coalescing Visions (up from 55)
        Now reward 125 reputation with their respective factions (up from 50 - 75)
    Lesser Vision Daily
        Still rewards 2000 Coalescing Visions on your first complete of the week
        Now rewards 1500 Coalescing Visions for each day completed after. (up from 1000)


Thank god, now we can be done with these god awful dailies sooner.

Did they fix the competing for clickables gameplay? No? Really?

Well then.

They said that objects and mobs should spawn faster now, so that might address it to some degree.

For today's dailies, statues were easy to find (mostly inside Guo-Lai halls) but caches in Uldum were tough even though they aren't compete-for-click.  So to some extent it's more about spawn rates.  (Still, they haven't had compete-for-click objects in quests in quite a while, and I have no idea why they went back to them.)
