There will always be some outliners who are lucky to have gathered a lot of echos, but thats just a very small amount of people. In that case you could argue that people with a lot of visions can just spam their vessels and have a advantage that way. If i would use up all my visions i'd have 25,5k echos. Not worth it for me tho as a hpala.

If there is not gonna be any refund in currency for cleansing corrupted items then this is just another level of "you're never done farming" presented as a nicely wrapped gift.
I understand the increased rate for echoes to offset the large amount some people have now, that's for the new corruptions. What I don't understand is why raise the price on essences? Anyone who has accumulated a large number of echoes already has their essences so it has no effect on them. One of the first things you're doing on an alt is getting the essences you need to even fill your heart, let alone your ideal ones. This change doesn't make that part "faster and easier". It's still gonna take a week or two to get your essences before you're likely to go after specific corruptions. Leave the essence price where it is and make the new grind for your corruptions.
So the vendor no longer sells them? AND the price increase by factor 5?Meaning the 5 alts I had with 500 are just royally butt$%^&ed again?
