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.

      Anyone know if the Broken Crown (aka The Ancient Crown of Rakkis) https://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/broken-crown#latest still drops?  It used to spawn in Leoric's thrown room after the boss fight.   A couple dropped for me, but that was long ago.  Unfortunately I lost my only copy on a hardcore DH before extracting in KC.  Doh!

      I think simcraft doesn't have appropriate preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent.
      how can i find the preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent??
       
      (I don't know exact word for preset.  I mean sth like this
      # Executed before combat begins. Accepts non-harmful actions only.
      actions.precombat=flask
      actions.precombat+=/augmentation,type=defiled
      actions.precombat+=/food
      actions.precombat+=/summon_pet
      # Snapshot raid buffed stats before combat begins and pre-potting is done.
      actions.precombat+=/snapshot_stats
      actions.precombat+=/potion
       
      # Executed every time the actor is available.
      actions=auto_shot
      actions+=/counter_shot,if=target.debuff.casting.react

      summon_pet=cat
      this was in mmo but i don't think this works appropriate cause when i used this DPS dropped about 20k.
      but when i used aspect of beast in-game DPS difference was not that much)

      Okay, so i got a 3rd legendary for my frost mage, Sephuz's Secret, the issue is that I have the crafted legendary shoulders and Lady Vashj's gloves equipped. My stats: Crit 33%, Haste 23%, Mastery 32%, and Vers 4%. When I equip the ring, my crit and haste bump quite a bit up, and i lose a bit of mastery (because the gloves i use as a replacement have crit and haste too). Should I keep gloves on for their equip bonus, or should i replace them with Sephuz's for the stats and ilvl increase? I know my crit will be above the soft cap with ring, but i can swap gems and enchants for haste ones as noted on the guide.
      ~Thanks, Underclocked

      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.
