Hi, I'm wondering what legendary cloak I should pick as a blood death knight... I picked the tank strength one but my friend chose the dps strength one. I'm wondering what would be better raiding-wise.
u should probly get the tank one, dps one is for either tanks who wont do any real raiding at all (lfr, dungeons, etc), or for tanks in cuting edge guild with very trustworthy healers. if threat is an issue for you then ur doing something wrong and a dps cloak wont fix it
LFR can be too easy for individual players, but individual players get lumped with 24 other random people, and it's pretty much certain that in 25 random people you'll have at least one guy who makes you wonder how he managed to switch his computer on.
This isn't true at all, but it isn't worth it being your only cloak. Take the tanking cloak first then get the dps cloak when you can afford it. On my druid I started with the DPS cloak, bought the tanking cloak a week later, now I have the caster dps one as well. I use the tanking cloak most of the time unless we're doing farm content, then tanking cloak if we're doing heroics or Garrosh.

For a DK tank shouldn't use cloak unless you have amz instead of purgatory.
Why ? Even if it may be a bit overkill. If a tank who obviously isn't cuting edge at all (I maybe even on the struggling side having the cloak only now) can help his raid by being nearly unkillable (cloak proc take priority over purgatory. So first killhit don't kill you, second killhit don't kill you and give the purgatory bubble)
That's what I'm planing to do when my DK will have his cloak (I only pug flex/normal with this alt. And IMO it will be veeeeery usefull seeing subpar healer strugling on some fights)
Of course if you have cleared Heroics or nearly done it point of view can change. But someone in this position allready should have both option in the bags.
the tank one is pretty useless for fights where you take fast pace dmg, for example spoils or something like galakras adds. tank cloaks useless, even if it procs it realistically wont do anything but soak a 40k hit and youll die 0.1 seconds later to another (if it was actualy possible for a tank to die on these bosses, but its the example that counts)
but things where only 1 ability can 1 shot you like cheesing stacks on siegecrafter tank cloak is mandatory
