Consolidated some of the story lines. Killed off more of the major characters like Perrin. Allowed Rand to kick ass. I think the author(s) overcompensated for Rand's behavior in the Gathering Storm and made his character a pansy over the last 2 books. This ruined his arc for me. So much so that I found myself rolling my eyes at the end of his "fight" with the dark one.
Sanderson's style is darker and more direct than Jordan's. So the change in pace is almost too much when you read a chapter that was written by Jordan prior to his death.
