Mythic+ Rewards

When are Mythic+ seasons going to give rewards other than a hidden achievement? Pandaria and Warlords had some nice Challenge Mode rewards. BfA has nothing cool like that.

Mythic+ Required class mechanics

Are there any plans on how to address the problem that some class mechanics are pretty much mandatory for high-level keystones (e.g. Rogue shrouds)? Why are there no crafting items that have the same effect, like with Bloodlust drums?

Mythic+ Leaver Penalty

Will there ever be a way to punish players that abandon keystone runs midway? It’s frustrating when pugs frequently apply then bail during the progression of the key wanting a free carry.
