Legendary Cloak Quest Last Chance - Black Prince Buff Extended
It looks like you won't need the cloak for Ordos anymore either!

Legendary Cloak Changes: Once More unto the Breach
As a part of the transition from Mists of Pandaria to Warlords of Draenor, we’ll be making some changes to the Legendary Cloak quest line and ultimately closing it out as players head into the new expansion. Once the quest is fully closed, the item will no longer be attainable, and the cloak will become a symbol of the great deeds you’ve accomplished in Mists of Pandaria.

With the release of the pre-expansion patch (6.0.2), players who are not already on the journey through this quest line will no longer be able to begin it. We will also be removing the Test of Valor step with patch 6.0.2 as a part of our transition from using Valor as a currency.

Once Warlords of Draenor launches on November 13, the Legendary Cloak quest line will be gone entirely—the quests and the cloak will no longer be obtainable, and any related in-progress quests will be cleared from your log.

But when one door closes, another door opens. In Warlords of Draenor, players will have the opportunity to earn a new Legendary item available exclusively in the new expansion: Khadgar’s Band of the Archmage.

The Gaze of the Black Prince: One Last Look
If you haven’t yet earned your Legendary Cloak, you still have one final opportunity to make accelerated progress on your quest. Rather than end the Gaze of the Black Prince buff on Tuesday, September 16 (as previously announced), the buff will remain active until the release of the Warlords of Draenor pre-patch (6.0.2). This buff increases the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It also increases the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line, including Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, and Titan Runestones.

Good luck on your quest, but remember that your voyage doesn’t end here. Soon, you’ll be setting your sights on the new Legendary item, Khadgar’s Band of the Archmage, in Warlords of Draenor.

Heirloom Vendor Change in Patch 6.0.2
Heirlooms in the Warlords of Draenor beta currently have some gold prices associated with them, but the prices may not be final. You will still be able to get the shields and offhands from the Darkmoon Faire.

As you might already be aware, both Justice and Valor Points are being removed as currencies from the game in 6.0.2. As we started to work on new ways to buy Heirlooms, we found that we were setting their value up for a rollercoaster ride. That's because we’re also working on a larger Heirloom system for a future patch, and we don’t want to introduce an interim pricing scheme that could temporarily devalue Heirlooms or limit how we’d be able to give them out in the future. Rather than make players face buyer’s remorse and hand-wringing decisions about when to buy, we’re going to give the Justice Heirloom vendors some time off while we work on improving the system as a whole.

One thing to note is that this change only affects vendors that sell Heirlooms for Justice. PvE Heirlooms will still remain available at the Darkmoon Faire and the Trial of the Crusader, and PvP Heirlooms will continue to be available for Honor.

    So if we are currently on the Test of Valor portion, when they drop this portion of the quest, will we lose the ability to do this chain? Or will I be able to continue since I have already started the quest chain?

    Hmm, interesting that unlike most other legendaries, you won't be able to obtain this one any longer.

    Though, granted, it's very accessible to players unlike the other legends as well.

    That's a silly way to do things. I can go get all my old legendaries after the fact. Why not this one?

    Might want to ask a dev on this - Some clarification would be nice, although as far as I can tell it should just be obtainable from the quest after A Test of Valor.

    They shouldn't remove the ability to complete to be honest. They can remove the started quest, but people who have it should have all the time in the world to complete it. Feels stupid especially if you will end up missing it by a week or so.

    If it's going away at Warlords launch, then the drop rate of the items you get in raids needs to be 100% and can be obtained even after you've killed the bosses in subsequent runs. (Like if you run LFR, you should be able to run LFR and get the drops even after you've gotten them once during the week). It's the only way to let people finish the quests who are on it, but are at the mercy of the RNG gods. At this point I don't think it should be an issue to let it be done by everyone else (or however many alts they have).

    But I'm sure I'm the only one in that frame of mind. /shrug.

    You can't get the NAXX60 staff or the bug mount from AQ opening.

    How is an item "iconic" on top of it being a legendary when any serious player is expected to have it...welfare lewts that are necessary and require nothing but time to obtain.
  1. Arrashi's Avatar
    That's really weird. There is no real reason to remove this questline - if someone wants to do it, they should be able.
    I have no idea what can possibly blizzard try to achieve by removing already existing content.

    And both are examples of huge mistakes that many players grumble about today. This will be another for the gang that can't seem to shoot straight.

    Can't get Atiesh.

    Why must Blizzard constantly remove things from the game? The cloak is just like any other legendary--pointless at the new level cap. It's not even a very prestigious item since everyone has one.

    Yeah that's not what iconic means....

    In about a month or so. Give or take a week.

    Wow...just wow.

    I mean, I'm glad they're extending the Black Prince buff, my mage is at 6/12 runestones as of today and I still have to do the first two wings of SoO. That being said, I knew I wouldn't have time to work on this on my druid that hit 90 a week and a half ago, and I was really wanting to be able to go back and work on it after the expansion.

    So this greatly saddens me. >.>

    What about transmogging the cloak?

    on beta, step 2 of the new legendary requires you to win 25 ashran battles.

    I like the idea of not being able to get that AQ mount or Naxx staff, or the current legendary cloak. Don't see why people get hung up on it. It's nice to have items that are out of reach.

    Showing off unobtainable items to those "special snowflake's" is priceless. You know how much they want them and know they can't every have them. Makes you more special than them for a few seconds at least 1up for the vet players with less time to play.
