Awesome cloak, one of the best available outside raids I guess.
Any reason this cannot be disenchanted?
This seems ridiculously good for a normal drop. It is much better than the "epic" tanking cloak that tailors can make, not to mention any other rare cloak pre-raid. This makes me think this has got to be a heroic drop. Anybody know?
According to a GM it not being disenchantable is a bug and will be fixed in time. So bank it if you want the shard sometime in near future.
As of 2.0.7 it can now be disenchanted.
Don't know if it's meant to be like that but got a Void Crystal out of it today when disenchanting it.
Does this drop in non-heroic?
Any serious tanking warrior needs to simply farm normal steamvaults until this drops. Its an absolutely exceptional cloak.
Perfect distribution of equip bonuses, hefty stamina and massive dodge. Alot of tanking warriors use this past Kara, past Gruul, even far into Serpentshrine.
You'll use this for a long, long time.
Steamvaults is a fairly quick and easy level 70 instance so farming for this is not to bad and you'll be in here for Bold gloves and a few odds and ends anyways. This is one of those great blues that's going to last you a good long while.
I'll add, that in the past two days, I have done at a minimum (and no exaggeration), of 30 runs, and have yet to see the cloak. It's quite disappointing to be totally honest. It makes me want to rake my eyes out with a fork.
Finally got it tonight and can get rid of my ugly Burnoose of Shifting Ages. Will enchant it with Dodge, as Nexus Crystals are dirt cheap these days and I can now solo the Un'goro Elementals for Guardian Stones without problem.
This is actually the best tanking cloak in the entire game. Look through wowhead for epic cloaks. Nothing beats this. Nihilum's MT had this cloak equipped when they downed Illidan.
Been farming this for around a month totalling 44 Kalithresh kills and have yet to see this thing drop. Already got the mats for the +12 Dodge rating enchant, got the guardian stones in 34 kills. Sooner or later this will drop for me, Burnoose will do for now till then.
Dropped the first time I killed Kalithresh, and I got the cloak. The second time I killed him it dropped as well and I won the greed roll so I got a shard.
Guess it's just luck but hey, I'm not complaining.
Best cloak pre al'ar i smacked a 12 dodge rating enchant onto this cloak and its causing me 2 have 2% more dodge now, BEST CLOAK EVERRR
this dropped for me and naturally i need rolled only tanking cloak id seen so far
...and a druid rolled on it for dodge rating -.-
Dropped for me, along with my chestpiece, on my first ever steamvaults run. I was thrilled, they were my first 2 tanking pieces as a paladin.
Burnoose of Shifting Ages
is just as effective as this cape, and a whole lot easier to farm.
for a proof of how the
is just as effective as the
Best tanking cloak in game for warr-pally
Droprate cant be that high, I have done 16 runs for it. 1 drop, but druid took it.
i did a run in the Steamvaults for the first time last night.
the Boss of the Dungeon dropped this cloak on normal mode, i am a Defense Warrior and i can't wait to wear this when i turn 70 in 2 more bars of xp.
Good luck to all who are wanting this cloak, it certainly is nice!
Dropped my First run :D Kara key frag and amazing cape awesome.
actually, block is considered avoidance for purposes of pally tanks reaching uncrushable. Anything that prevents an unmitigated hit is considered avoidance be it a dodge, block, or parry.
This is arguably the best cloak in the game for a protection Paladin. Most protection Paladins (including myself) are aware that too much avoidance will drain your mana pool very quickly, items like this with a balance of avoidance AND mitigation are idea for us.
I'm tanking at MH/BT level and I still use this cape - looking at other capes, I can't see myself ever upgrading from this.
Though the item level is much lower than other capes, don't be fooled, the itemisation is awesome - in my opinion Blizzard's best creation to date.
I've been using
for a long time now, should I replace it with
or stick with Devilshark, I like the extra Stam, Armour and Dodge on the epic but lately with Patch 2.4 my block value is going to hell with the new SSO badge gear. Stick with the blue or get the epic ?
Block value, for warriors, should not be completely written off - It may not count for a huge amount on mitigation, but shield slam is made better with block value, and is still our highest tps move, and in a situation where warriors tps is not scaling as well as palis or druids in comparison to the dps of the raid, I would suggest this cloak as the better cloak for raiding trash, five manning, etc where total avoidance and hit point totals are not so important as maintaining threat on mobs that aren't feeding you unlimited rage.
So - imo that no one asked for :P - excellent cloak, every warrior tank should have it in their inventory, and if you're really going for max avoidance/hp, used situationally in exchange with an equally easily obtained Slikk's.
Does anyone know the drop chance for this couple site's have it at about 13% but someothers have it as low as 3%?
What about the best enchant for this cloak? Do most people still go with Dodge for pure avoidance or do some go with Major Armor to help with mitigation? The cloak already comes with 150% of the dodge rating that the enchant gives, so is it better to boost the lacking stat? I'm guessing it's more of a case per case basis on this one then anything. Could even throw steelweave on here without cringing I suppose if the 490 hadn't been reached.
The existence of this item alludes to the existence of Devilsharks.
Yeah...I have lost all motivation to explore the Naga capital.
Honestly a good cloak for any tank to get going into northrend dont kid yourself being defense capped or tring to be helps your healer out and makes things go faster
