As promised, Alveona, Exorsus' guild master, has posted his opinions on the Tomb of Sargeras Mythic race on reddit. He goes really in-depth not only on the hot topic of Kil'jaeden, but the rest of the raid as well - from the difficulty curve, to what he thinks went wrong with the instance, hardcore raiding mythbusting and more.
As you can imagine he's not too thrilled with the whole thing, but the post is well explained and we can get a feeling of what their frustrations on the boss(es) were much better. It's definitely worth a read if you're interested in the perspective of top-end raiders and in what tuning of a new raid looks like in the extremely early days of a new (Mythic) tier. Here are some highlights from the post:
Be sure to check out the whole thing for better context and even more info.
Patch 7.3 adds two new factions to the game. The first one's called Argussian Reach and you can add up to 7 mounts to your collection. Most of the reputation is gained from World Quests.
Toraan the Revered is the faction's quartermaster and sells a tabard at Exalted.
Argussian Reach Emissary - World Quests Cache Argussian Reach Emissary Artifact Power - Cache AP Reward Argussian Reach Mounts
The new faction offers 7 talbuk mounts. All of them are unlocked at Exalted.
Maddened Chaosrunner is the only mount that has a somewhat "unique appearance" and it's an Argus drop. The other talbuks are just recolors.

More attempted fixing of issues with "jump" abilities today, Destro Locks' Immolate, ToV items for Fury and Enh hidden artifact skins, as well as some Priest PvP get fixes as well.

(Hhotfix in testing) Fixed a bug with Heroic Leap, Havoc's Metamorphosis, and Infernal Strike where they would sometimes fail to cast but still trigger their cooldown if the player became Rooted at the same time as the spell was cast. Warlock Destruction Immolate’s Soul Shard generation should now function as intended and match the tooltip. Dungeons and Raids
Trial of Valor Helya, Odyn Corrected an issue that prevented the items for the hidden Fury or Enhancement artifact appearances from dropping when Personal Loot was selected. Player versus Player
Priest Holy (Hotfix in testing) The final healing and damage of Ray of Hope can no longer be prevented by Smoke Bomb. Previous Hotfixes
