    Cloak Proc...why woukd I even change it

    Just a foresight here on cloaks. Im not sure what Blizzard is planning regarding these but why would I swap anything at all over my legendary when it gives me a 20% reduction. Surely this will be superior to anything they can offer after the fact?

    Nobody said you will have to do it. They are getting nerfed. Perhaps not in the way you said,but that is a fact. Perhaps the effects diminish over the course of 10 levels. But the nerfing is a fact, I saw it somewhere a while back, can't find a link atm, soz, but I can assure you, you won't need to have a cloak at 100.

    I just hope they don't turn all loot for x equipment slot into "of the disenchant" like they did to cloaks-.-

    Guess you weren't around TBC era... Oh the memories, some guildie of mine were actually using Thunderfury in Sunwell. I guess if blizzard would allow MoP legendaries to be fully used in WoD, kind of bring back some nostalgia.

    And on the other hand, most of us gonna level up our mains, which we don't actually "have to go back and re-do them". Free legendary for an entire expansion, think about it

    Blizzard said in gamingstation pod cast that the effects of the cloak would be gone by 93-94 and should defineatly be replaced by 95.

    It was implemented to force people into removing the legendary in place of a higher cloak.

    Is no one going to point out that the 20% reduction is from the meta and not the cloak?

    anyways both will stop work/be bad by 100

    People did that to be fancy, not because of the debuff..since it didn't work on bosses anyway if I recall correctly.

    Yeah that sounds really dumb and boring when you actually mold it over. You should try it.

    People used Thunderfury more for nostalgia then real effectiveness if we are honest. It was a cool weapon, with arguably one of the coolest wow designs for all time .


    EDIT: Not saying the cape has a bad design btw. But you know, its a cape...

    Would love to know how you can transmog a legendary, and no, the AoE threat TF produced was second to none and only really lost value as a weapon with Black Temple it wasn't just nostalgia, it's proc was that good.
    Only make passive aggressive posts when it doesn't make you look like a dumbass.

    Its proc was good but it wasnt needed. If you had issues with aoe threat you where doing it wrong. The other stats it offered where bad, and it lost in single target dps + threat.

    The only legendary they'll have to specifically change will be the tank cloak, because the death prevention effect would be equally useful at level 100 as it is at level 90, so it would have use where the effect could be used as a cooldown. The other cloaks/meta gems will just proc less often for characters above level 90 until they have basically (or perhaps literally) 0% chance at level 100, so those are easy.

    The Tank cloaks will probably be changed to something like:
    "Equip: The Endurance of Niuzao fully absorbs the damage of one attack that would normally kill you. This effect has a 2 min cooldown. Does not function for non-Tank-specialized characters or characters over level 95".

    there will be no meta gem socket in WoD and the cloak wont work on higher level i think.

    Didn't it reduce the attack speed of enemies affected by the proc?
