    [Ret] Legendary Cloak buggy?

    Hey there

    I have noticed that the legendary cloak wont be triggered when divine storm hits a target from a greater distance. Of course, I updated my weakaura and I simulated this situation in the Order Hall and in dungeons. The result was always the same: the target(s) have been damaged, but the effect of the cloak has not been triggered.

    Can anybody confirm this?

    I play on an EU server und use the legendary cloak and belt, with a weakaura to track the uptime of the effect of the cloak.

    IIRC DS never worked in a different way... the buff was applied when your initial cast hits a target... The ashbringer then copies the DS and makes the copy move forward - so the initial cast might not hit anything (and thus not apply the buff) and the copy will hit something but NOT apply the buff either.

    Could be wrong but i believe that's the way it's meant to be and the way it always worked.

    Hey man, and thanks for the feedback but I am actually not talking about the echo cast of divine storm.

    In the order hall, I did it that way: I used my wake on the tank dummy, then i walked with 5 holy power to the smaller dummied on the other side until I had like 10y distance to them and i did my divine storm in their direction.
    Of course the echo hit the dummies, but the initial cast hit them too, before the echo.
    -->Cloak not triggered.

    So, if you are in melee range you are good but e.g. if you have lots of holy power before there is a trashpackpull in a dungeon, better dont use divine storm, cause it wont trigger the cloak, at least for me.

    It's been doing this since at least 7.1, and possibly before that too.

    Yeah you have to be within around 9 yards to get it to proc.

    The way the cloak works is one more proof that they are not giving a flyin shit about details and specially about retribution. If the tooltip was right then there should not be a range or target requirement. As long as you had enough holy power to trigger DS you should receive the buff from the cloak regardless of it hitting a target in x range or just following a cast in the middle of nowhere after you killed a critter around with WoA to get enough hopo
