Guardian Legendary Cloak

5 posts in this topic

Perhaps i'm missing something here, but the legendary tanking cloak for Guardian spec looks a bit... weak. I'm already at the expertise cap for Guardian and I don't think Guardians have much use for mastery. Anyhow, looking at Fen-Yu, Fury of Xuen, it has all the stats I'm looking for, save for mastery which I could probably just reforge into another stat. Flurry of Xuen also grants us yet another AoE, v. Qian-Le, which gives us a "Cheat Death"-esque ability... which probably is useless because healers exist, and it's not like 1 extra second before I die will make a whole lot of difference when we wipe. I may be missing something incredibly obvious that I'm not seeing, but it seems like Fen-Yu is a better item for Guardian than Qian-Le is. So, my question is: should I get Fen-Yu, Fury of Xuen, or should I get Qian-Le?

Get both.

 

The tank proc is far from useless, Cheat Death mechanics give huge leeway to healers and tanks on progression fights and a fair amount of mechanics can be cheesed, like Ironstars on Garrosh.

like said above, get both.

it costs 7k to buy a new cape, and another ~87 g to buy the essence.  the essence will BOTH turn the cape into legendary and upgrade it the 2x vp 4 ilvl

 

I had the same question for my prot pally (stats much nicer on the dps vs tank one) and ended up getting both, and i switch based on the fight (although yes, there is lots of room to say that the dps one is just as good/better than the tank one for 90% of the time.  but as pointed out, there are times that you WILL want the tanking one.)

If you've already got a DPS epic cloak, you'll get the DPS legendary when you turn it in. You can buy the tanking one separately and upgrade it as well (the item to upgrade is cheap, just not the cloak). If you have yet to choose your 600 epic, get the tanking one. The tank proc is more useful than you think, and the DPS cloak proc is detuned for tanks so you don't get the same RPPM as a melee class.

I agree with the others, if you can afford it get both.

The cloak may have its proc reduced, but it can still do some significant damage.  I have had the cloak proc do over 25k dps on Galakras.  If you can get two helms, I'd recommend having one with the DPS meta as well that you can use on fights where you have little danger of dying.

Arielle at http://theincbear.com/ who knows far more than I ever will has some posts on his site where he suggests what legendary pieces to use on what boss.

      So, the item specifies Death and Decay-which Unholy also has-does it work with the spec? And how good is it in fights where you can have those 10 seconds reliably enough?

      Hey Guys
      I know there is a lot of other postes about stats, but here is my question:

      In general: versa >= mastery > haste
      Vers for more heal and a reduction of dmg taken, mastery for more life and more incoming heal and haste for lower cd.
      that's clear, but why have so much progress player other stats? moste of them have a lot of crit and more then less versa.
      for exemple:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/tarren-mill/Justwaitdr/simple
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/ревущий-фьорд/Эрриган/simple
      Moste of them have just 15-16% mastery.

      it's a bit confusing :P
      I'm a main prot worrior and will play now my druid for m+ dungeons. which eq shall I buy and looking for? pure vers, pure mastery, a mix of bouth (1:1) or a other stat?

      thanks for helping

      PS:
      Has somebody a Pawn string?

      So right after I hit 100 and while I was still doing some quests as destro, the spec I leveled as, I got my first legendary. Sweet right? One right off the bat! But it's made me wonder, as demo has proven to be the top performing spec, if that's turned out to be a drawback. Mostly because this Magistrike Restraints is the one I got. It has a very spec specific benefit, and I'm wondering if it's worth sticking to destro because of it. I've played some demo, and I worry that if I get a second legendary in demo, it's going to spread out the power I could gain by having two for the same spec. Also I wonder if that 30% chance of the extra chaos bolt is going to increase my damage enough to be competitive with demo at my ilevel (855 right now). Or I could always get one in demo that benefits all specs. But I don't know. So I'm mostly just working with what I have now and under the impression that I will, at some point get, one more. 

      So tell me what you think. Is that 30% chaos bolt worth sticking with the spec? Is the possibility of having two destro legendaries really going to push my damage output higher than demo would be with no legendaries for it? Or just one?

      Hello fellow druids!
      I managed to complete the meta achievement 'Glory of the Legion Hero' yesterday for the guardian appearence, the red Avatar of Ursol tint. To my surprise the appearance is still locked even though I have the achievement.
       
      Am I the only one with this issue?

      Hate to be another needy fellow who is having a hard time analyzing the logs, but I'm trying to dig through and see what I'm doing wrong, but I can't find it all...
      I have Greenskins Waterlogged bracers, so i've thrown BttE into the rotation (when I remember to check the CD) and follow with the next PS proc (hopefully Blunderbuss!) that's my only rotation variation I'm attempting. I havent been using ghostly strike, because I have a terrible time remembering to keep it up, but I'm going to try again. (I wasn't specced  with GS for these logs) 
      I think I might be having an issue with casting PS/BB too much, but I'm sure there are other issues.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks a bunch guys.
      Edit: note: I know I'm using old pots/flasks, I'm a bit behind on being able to upgrade, so I'm currently only using current pots/flasks on some occasions.
