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.

    Legendaries cease to have any meaning if they become transmog sources, being in effect epics with another colour.
    Though in some ways, they aren't much different already.
    This unusual move of removing the ability to earn it at a higher level means it maintains a certain amount of value, whatever the "thoughts" are on difficulty.
    Legendaries have always had more of an RNG aspect than "skill".
    Your performance in a a fight does not mean better odds of required loots.
    Someone with world ranking dps is just as likely to see a certain item drop as someone who is being carried.

    Considering the length of time it takes to finish this quest chain, they really should have made this announcement earlier. Anyone who hasn't started it at this point will never be able to get it now. (Doing A Test of Valor now from the start alone will take you up to 6.0.2 probably).

    I know, someone will say "you had 2 years to finish it!" That's right, but it's not the point. Someone may have been planning to get it at some point in the future--for an alt, or just for looks, or because Blizzard had promised that the valor portion would be skipped in the future while the rest of the quest remained, or whatever--and thought they could do it at a leisurely pace, but now they're out of luck.

    I'm a bit surprised to see this honestly.
    Although I can't say it will affect me much, just surprised.

    I do agree that they should of said this earlier, but from the sounds of things, they just decided recently, especially since it was announced along side of the heirloom change.

    Do the part before, wait for 6.0.2 , ToV gets removed, do the rest.

    Seems kind of pointless to remove. I guess I'll void storage mine forever? It's not like they're moggable.

    Then hope on a wish and a prayer you get the rest.

    Kind of an idiotic change. Seems like it's just a means to keep people subbed so they don't miss out on that limited time offer.

    I, for one, won't be jumping through that hoop.

    I'm not supporting the decision to remove the Legendary cloak in the new expansion. One of the core fun activities of WoW is running old content and feeling like we've missed something in the past and can't get it on a future alt is not fun at all.

    I have no problem with the cloak changes, but haven't they said they won't change the availability of the cloak in the next xpack? Quite a surprising change then, so close to wod.

    I don't think we need another news post to be turned into a theory of how it's being done to keep subs up...
    I think they know by now those who really wanted it would of went for it already.

    That's the point of my question. They are removing the item and saying it will be a record of our deeds, yet we can't transmog it.

    I would see no issue with allowing it to be transmogged, since their original logic was "Everyone would go farm one and transmog to it" yet you won't be able to do that with the capes.

    Yeh, that holds true to something that is openly obtainable. Not with items that will be removed. (even if this is the most owned leg ever.)

    I'm strictly going of the the "...and the cloak will become a symbol of the great deeds you’ve accomplished in Mists of Pandaria."

    Removing the quest chain feels just incredibly pointless. Yes, I already have the cloak, and I wasn't even planning to get it for any of my alts.

    I don't care about any of the so-called prestige, it's just a shame that new or returning players won't be able to experience the storyline. Considering all the work put into it by the writers, quest designers and voice actors, removing it seems like a pointless waste.
