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 I'm confused on what to do at this point.. I'm at 30% crit with the shoulders equip and 120% mastery. Should I be stacking mastery now and not worrying about crit since I get 100% off start? I also have the bracers? Also since the burst is for 6 seconds I don't know what I should do for a opener anymore.. Any suggestions?

      With the huge upcoming nerfs to BtE (crit multiplier removed) and greenskins wrists (400% to 300% damage), i am wondering if the effect will still be worth using in 7.1.5, or whether or not they will become a glorified stat stick. With the slight buff to ghostly strike also, it seems they may become useless. Does anyone have any info / run any sims on the issue. On a side note, with the single target buffs to outlaw is it going to be a competitive spec, and will slice and dice overtake roll the bones to give the spec more consistency (although make it far more boring).

      So after taking a look at the patch notes of my beloved Guardian Druid I guess we'll have to adjust so some significant changes.
      - Rage Generation took an overall nerve.
      - Ironfur took a double nerve. First by lower availability due to lower rage Generation and second by having its effect reduced from 100% armor to 80%.
      - Another double nerve is Gory Fur, now lowering costs by 25% instead of 50%, paired with lower overall rage generation.
      - Some talent changes that need ingame testing, like damage buff for Pulverize and the new Talent replacing displacer beast.
      In total I find this to be a nerve for this spec, that is not evened out by 4% damage increase on many base skills - espeacially when reading, that the damage increase is a lot higher for many other classes/specs (that in some cases also needed it way more, but you get what I mean, I think).
      I like the thought about more Focus on deciding whether to use ironfur or mark of ursol, since we won't be able to use it in quick succession anymore.
      So how do my fellow Guardian Druids think about These changes? Did anyone experience it on the PTR and can give some comparison to the live version pre 7.1.5?
      How noticable are the changes to our gameplay?

      Mantle of the Master Assassin How good is it and how would it sculpt each of the 3 different specs if obtained?
