    New legendary cloak proc for Hunters (image heavy-ish).

    Some of you might remember that in a past topic I showed some screenshots and provided some information on the legendary cloak proc. Some were a little disappointed with it's mechanics, but the blues mentioned that Hunters would get a completely new proc they simply weren't able to implement yet. However I noticed something new when I was on the PTR today. It seems like they changed our cloak proc completely along with it's animation. Here's the news.

    This is the cloak itself. As you can see, it now somewhat works likes the caster cloak. It hits the target you currently have selected and AoEs around that target.



    But here is the juicy bit. Not only do we have a proper animation on our back like all other classes now, but when it procs we actually shoot loads of tiny arrows like a tiny barrage on steroids which rain down on our target. Here is the ''normal'' back view with the proc (zoomed out, so you can't see the proc that well).



    And lastly a more zoomed in version from the side.



    Unfortunately I can't ''screenshot'' an animation, but it looks a lot like the arrow volley ability the mobs before Valithria Dreamwalker used in ICC.

    I'm very happy with the new proc. The mechanic itself, as well as the kickass animation are just awesome. Kudos to Blizz.

    The animation looks pretty cool in your last screen there.

    The screenshots really don't do the animation justice to be honest. It's something you really need to see in-game.
    But I hope some of the people who can't or don't want to go on the PTR find it interesting to see.

    Possibly a little off-topic but how do you actually get the upgraded cloak? I've been hearing different things all over the place.
    Is it farm coins + a Garrosh kill?

    I do love that we got a little personal attention, I like the way it looks a lot.

    You have to collect 200 timeless coins and defeat the four celestials on the Timeless Isle. Not sure if there are other steps between that and the cloak.

    OT: How is the damage from the proc looking?

    Is there an npc on the ptr to simply swap your epic cloak for the legendary version? Or do you actually have to do something significant?

    Really only 200? You can literally collect that many in a minute.

    Which was, very briefly, the Volley animation for player Hunters during TBC. Geez was I sad when it got reverted :l

    As with most drop-type currencies, the drop rate on the PTR will be inflated for the purposes of testing. On Live, it will most likely take longer.

    Holy crap, that looks great. Solves the range issues nicely.

    It's been changed to 2500 coins, the "hard" part is getting a group to kill the bosses

    Ra-den is what you get when a designer thinks that's actually a really good idea.

    I remember a Hunter on the PTR at the Time they altered the original animation to this "spreading" one. Spamming Volley while shouting "im cumming!" :P

    Good thing that Blizz is using this one again ^ ^
