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.

      Right, so today Kil'Jaeden's burning wish dropped for me, my 3rd legendary.
      I have Shard of the Exodar and Cord of Infinity currently - and with the 7.2 changes to Cord of Infinity I don't know what to do/pick/run with?
       
      Is Burning Wish still going to be BiS with 7.2, the changes to Cord of Infinity on PTR are pretty awesome, and as for Shard - two Time Warps per fight is pretty awesome too.
       
      So, hence my dilemma lol...
      Forgot to add, I play Arcane.

      Alrighty, let's start with my char:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/the-maelstrom/Kvaksalver/simple
      Currently, I got the head, cloak, belt, ring and kil'jaden trinket.
      Question is, which combination should i use? (Note that I'm using BoS/GS build) I'm pretty sure it's tied between head + ring / head + belt. 
      But please, by all means help me out on this one :-)

      Just looted a Convergence of Fates last night and this morning got Spiritual Journey from Blingtron of all things. 
      Question is.  
      Spiritual Journey + Convergence of Fates + Feral Lunge > Emalon's Charged Core  for single target? 
      I have a Tier chest replacement for Emalon's and I figure any fight that has enough to proc Emalon's means I wear it for sure. But what about Single Target fights? Any thoughts on this?

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got Kiljaeden trinket  as my third legendary and I am questionning which legendary to use.
      Legendaries i have: Perseverance (helm), Seal of necrofantasia, Kiljaeden trinket
      Trinket i have: CoF 875, Memento 865, Arcano crystal 860, Claw of the scorpid 900, kiljaeden 940
       
      When I sim my DK with new trinket, the CoF 875 and the 900 ring Ii get around 10k more dps (~593k single raid target) whereas when i sim my character with necrofantasia + CoF + claw of scorpid 900, i get around 582-583k.
       
      What i'm thinking is that Kiljaeden might be better in M+ whereas Necrofantasia might be better in Raids, but i'm really not sure ... any help is greatly appreciated ;)
       
      also, if i should use Necrofantasia, is CoF 875 + claw of the scorpid 900 the "ideal" trinket combo i could use with the trinkets i have in my posession ?
       
      here is my Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/sargeras/Àllahakbar/advanced
       
      Thank you very much for any insight!
