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.

    Nothign stops you from equiping it for RP purpose or to show off. Same with other legendarys. I sometimes see a guy running on the black bug mount, or with atiesh

    And if you don't? Lots of wasted effort!
    Yeah, it sounds a bit odd of them to do that...maybe they'll increase it to guaranteed drops during that time, hopefully for the unlucky at least.

    To be fair, if someone had the black bug and wasn't using it, I'd question their choices.

    I have no interest in wearing it or transmogging it. I could see it being able to be transmogged though.

    Why not just let people who are on the quest line finish it? Like the Hand of A'dal title quest chain.

    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.
    I agree, a new player should be able to experience it (or even just someone who didn't do it). Just as a new player can still experience the ICC questline.

    So whats the point of it in future xpacks? It's not viable. You can't mog it. Is any other leg different?
    You got the achievement, that's the only remaining point. ( aside from title / mount in some cases )

    You have had over 2 years to do this chain, you really can not complain. If you just recently resubbed well tough titties. Some of us endured the entirety of this quest, having to deal with terrible RNG week after week, then had to wait patiently for the next installment.

    We earned it, we deserve it, and it's a nice souvenir for those of us that supported MoP and have stuck with it from beginning to end.

    As for people rerolling to a new main, they might just make the cloak purchasable for those that have completed the chain on at least 1 character.

    Just because I don't care to use it for transmog does not mean other might not either. Once again, going off the symbol comment.

    The black prince buff stays until WoD is released. So essentially you will have a month with the buff and no valor wait/restriction. Should be super easy.

    EDIT: Nvm, I am idiot. Completely skimmed a misread the post. They need to push the buff to WoD Release.

    This one is a bit different i guess. ICC, Ulduar and DS are class (or a few classes) specific. This one is for everyone.

    You could say the same thing about Shadowmourne, but that's still there.

    Once again symbol point doesn't exist as it's not different then any other legendary in game.
  1. iamthedevil's Avatar
    Nax staff was specific also. That went away due to the fact that the objectives were being replaced and or moved. MoP stuff is still all in place.

    a quote doesn't exist, mmmk. I think you are trying to say my opinion is wrong.
  1. dd614's Avatar
    Why bother removing it? There's no prestige to it whatsoever, why not just let people have it for cosmetic fun if they want it and haven't yet got it for some reason? Khadgar's Ring sounds like crap, too. Just a beefed up violet band.

    Well, then it's time to get the mood up to get ready to farm for a new legendary item. As soon as it's released.

    Related questions that they need to answer:

    Will black prince rep still be obtainable after this quest line is removed?

    Will the vendor who sells replacement legendary items still be there, or do I have to buy any cloaks now whose effects I might want visually (for whatever reason) in the future?

    Because you have had over a year to finish this ludicrously easy quest line and no one deserves it if they haven't already finished it.

    Opinions aren't wrong, they are subjective. I'm saying aside from an achievement and equiping the item for RP / show off there is no other way for it to symbol to anyone else but you.
    Same is for every other legendary.

    They want people to resub to do the quest chain, while they still can. A few thousand will. Business 101. It's the same reason they're doing the character name reclamation.
