    Can someone give me any reason why this is any better than titanforging? Any reason, at all?

    What I don't think people are understanding is this was meant to be negative as well as positive. This is not just a mechanic to improve your gear... this fits perfectly into the storyline with N'Zoth infesting our world and corrupting everything around it. Not every mechanic around gear is going to improving the quality...

    People complain way too much about titanforging and RNG.

    well it would make sense if it was permanent, but you can cleanse it, so.. its just stupid

    also the system itself is bland, boring and uninspired

    Honestly thought RNG gem sockets and titan-forging was bad, but this is in a whole new league of bad. Actually thinking about just giving up and maybe coming back once its gone next expan or tier.

    It’s not. It is much much worse.

    Seems pretty cool.

    Just the more reason for me to not even bother much with this patch. Guess there might still be a bit of hope that the next expansion can set things right, but BFA is just done at this point.

    Titanforging is meant to be exciting. Garrisons were meant to be awesome. Ion tries to shove his vision and opinion down every player's throat, telling what players should think about each feature.

    Doesn't matter what it meant to be. What matters is what it ends up as. What it does is add yet another layer of RNG. Many players are sick of RNG on top of RNG with more RNG for RNGness sake. Many players are sick of endless grinds. Many players are tired of lottery simulator that WoW is turning into. Ion doesn't care about players, he only cares about making subscriptions last longer using mix of variations of RNG and time gating and writes big articles about how his awesome his crap is to justify that crap. He's a lawyer and it shows.

    Its like trying to convince players that diarrhoea is good. Corrupted items are as evolution of Titanforging as Black Plague is evolution of Common Flu - it sort of is, but its not a good type of evolution. And he tries to sell it as exciting positive thing.

    And for good reason. It's over the top in retail. So they responded by giving us an even more RNG system...

    Why are people saying M+ is dead? Corrupted gear drops from Mythic+ as well, per a blue post.

    If titanforging is gone, they'll just add static ilvl drops in the mythic+ cache. There's no reason to assume otherwise.

    M+ isn't going anywhere...

    The goal of corrupted gear is to devalue wf/tf from solo content....end game content like mythic raiding and M+ is not gonna be affected by this.

    This system is much mors worse than Titanforging was. This is a sh*t.

    This is just speculation, but I assume when you cleanse it you'll also lose the equip effect that comes with it, so either both or none. I don't think they'll allow to just cleanse corruption and keep the effect, that would be just plain stupid.

    People here seem to misunderstand the fact that blizz indeed listened, but they didnt listen to everything sadly, this system will keep the ilvl progression in check, meaning that the "ilvl inflation" issue that people argued about is solved, the strongest corrupted pieces will come from the hardest content, again they listened about the "ez af content rewarding bis" argument, the bad part is that they ignored the "way too much rng" argument, so we got this corrupted system, but people need to understand that this IS better than titanforging, but they didnt get rid of the RNG, which still bothers a lot of people.

    This is enough... we should quite literally all unsub...

    I mean are they purposly destroying their game ?

    Yes, the corruption can come from any piece of gear. It's also true you're going to want as many secondary stat boosting pieces as you can get while keeping your corruption as low as possible. If you can manage 5 pieces and keep your gear at sub 60 corruption level it will probably be better than 4 pieces at 75.

    It's still on a piece by piece basis. A tier 3 piece (aka the highest secondary stat you can get) is going to have a corruption value of 20 - 25 corruption. So 3 pieces that give you 60 total corruption are going to much more valuable than 3 pieces that give you 75 corruption total.

    The break points for the debuffs are 10, 20, 40, 60.

    For those same pieces of gear above, in Example A with 60 total corruption, it means the following debuffs:
    - 70% slow, 60,811 damage with a 12 yard radius, 10% extra incoming damage and healing reduction
    For Example B, it means the following:
    - 80% slow, 68,601 damage with a 14 yard radius, 20% extra incoming damage and healing reduction

    If they make every gear that drops be corrupt would help solve issues with their RNG?
