I think the Melee DPS one is being under sold. If my napkin math is right then with my 536 2 Hander then that proc is worth 84k damage or 28k DPS, not to mention it cleaves.
If someone wants to double check my math then I did (weapon min+weapon max/2)/100*60*6.

Or maybe it's just a normal warrior execute and is cast sub 20% on your health. In that case it's just don't let the tank drop.

Am I the only one who doesn't think its that terrible? Kinda weaker on single target though. It's essentially free Barrage procs for hunters... 360% weapon damage over 3 sec to all targets, i.e. barrage exactly (except barrage is 320% to secondary targets). Now if they changed it so your primary target took double damage it would be a little nicer overall. The caster one will deliver more consistent damage because its AOE is secondary, not primary like the physical one. Physical one will be amazing in multi target fights, bleh in single target which is why I think it needs that double damage on primary just like Barrage.

Sulfuras: Procs on auto-swing
Thunderfury: Procs on auto-swing
Glaives: Chance on melee attack
Bow: Indirectly and not relevant now, but it auto-generated arrows for you
Val'anyr: Chance on cast of a healing spell
Shadowmourne: Chance on melee attack
Dragonwrath: Copied a spell
Daggers: Chance on melee attack
People will complain if their ice cream was cold. It's free damage/healing. It can be bad sometimes (when adds near the boss shouldn't be killed), but overall, it's still free. I don't particularly like the tanking one though, not a big fan of having cooldowns I can't control. It's still better than nothing though.
As for the actual cloak procs, I normally would go for the dps options but if they make it in this incarnation it would appear i will be using the tank one for once.

I recognize a lot of tanks aren't that good, and even more raids are not that good and for them a "i fucked up save my ass please"-cloak will be nice, but as with everything this expansion, good tanks will likely go for the dps one - especially serious progression guilds if the cloaks will be available that early.
Overall, the tank cloak one is, to be quite honest, shit. If you dropped that low something is wrong anyway and chances are your healers already blew everything to keep up with whatever it was you messed up to get so low you actually would have died, causing another death moments later.
A tank will not suddenly, magically, decide to stop using their cooldowns or mitigation just because the 60seconds are over and the cloak is ready to proc and keep you at 1% health instead of 0%.
That said, the dps ones look pretty interesting, especially the melee one. I'm slightly underwhelmed by the caster one - not the numbers, that all can change, but it's basically just hand of guldan. I'd have liked something... I don't know. More unique.
25H + Berserker stance = You're gonna be seeing huge numbers.
The Xuen proc doesn't look good, but if it turns out to work like a "free Barrage", then I'll sure want it!
Regardless he doesn't hit hard enough even on non avoidance tanks to cap your vengeance.
Oh and in regards to what you said about his defensive stance, that one was bugged during PTR testing making you unable to attack him properly for resources to use on your active mitigation abilities.

Or get the tank cloak to save your life just to put something of relevance to the thread into the post
