Really nice tanking cloak.
"It's more of a DPS Cloak if you ask me,(not saying it's not nice for tanks at all though)not the best, but it can do the job. "
Show me a better tanking cloak. There are only 2 Epic +def cloaks ingame and this is the best tank cloak if u ask me.
The cloak is the best tank cloak in the game currently, nothing else is close. You can moan and whine that it's also DPS, but any guild capable of getting the cloak will be assigning to tanks first. Whereas for DPS its not even close to the best.
It drops in AQ off Princess Huhuran.
Binds when picked up
Requires Level 60
Equip: Increases your chance to dodge an attack by 1%.
Equip: Increased Defense +6.
With the stamina on Golden Hive, it is more likely to be the upgrade tanks seek from Dragon's Blood Cape... (116 Armor, 22 Stam, 9 Str, 5 SR / FR)
With the armor and dodge on Sandstorm, it is the upgrade many a Druid will seek from Elementium Threaded Cloak (169 Armor, 13 stam, 2% Dodge). The big boost obviously being the defense, and of course the added AP is a huge bonus, as Bear's derive their threat from the amount of damage they can produce.
Warriors: Princess Huhuron and the Cloak of the Golden Hive.
Druids: Ossirian the Unscarred and the Sandstorm Cloak.
Edit: With a cape such as Sandstorm Cloak, or I suppose Cloak of the Golden Hive, Epic Druid Tanks will have no trouble acquiring 365 Defense with over 12k Armor and 8k HP Raid Buffed, while still keeping ~24% Crit and 900 AP.
This and elementium are the 2 best tanking cloaks but I give this one the edge. The increased armor from elementium is worth about .1% damage mitigation---almost worthless. The 10 agility and +6 Def give .75% dodge plus .25%block/parry.The strength improves the amount blocked. The agility/Str also improve DPS and crit a bit which helps to hold aggro. You also gain 60 HP that is very useful with the healers. I want to also comment on the Max.Def. of 425---I'm not sure if that is the ceiling but with 430 Def I almost never get crit'ed.The extra 6 def allows me to drop some Def somewhere else. For example,I would use the archmitiros ring instead of the DI ring for the large boost in stamina/agility.what does the ultimate tank need? I'd say 425 Def and then MAX out your HP. The ossirian sand cloak is also excellent but behind these 2 IMHO.So what do I ultimately want:
Wrath Set(currently 6/8--need belt and wrist)
elementium shield(currently use Buru---2nd best imho)
Archmitiros/veklor rings(currently use ZG overlords set---which as a set is dynamite)
Cloak of Golden Hive(have it)
Onyxia/styleens trinkets(have both)
Master dragon slayers medallion from Nef(have it)
Mandokirs sting for off-hand(have it)
What about enchants:
shoulders---5 FR(I use wrath paldrons as my FR shoulders)
Well there you have it---my idea of the best equipped tank.Would anyone else do anything differently?
... the day on which druids get leather drops with +defense on it, plus a handful more abilities to build more aggro. This is a tanking cloak, get over it. Yes it has +agility on it, does it make a rogue/druid cloak just because of that?
Protection warriors have been lacking tanking gear with +agility bonuses for way too long (MC / BWL gear it is), let us have the joy of more critical strikes (along with an increased dodge/parry chance) too.
Healers will be glad if they won't run out of mana too soon, think about them aswell.
Selfishness FTL, go play BG's.
It's not a bad cloak, but not nearly the best.
The Sandstorm Cloak (Ossirian, AQ20) is naturally higher in tank points than this one due to its +1% dodge, 71 MORE armor than this one and +6 defense.
The Elementium Threaded Cloak (Chromaggus, BWL) is better than this one as well, due to its 100 greater armor and +2% dodge.
It has pretty bad armor for feral tanks as well.
Overall, not a bad cloak, but doesn't quite match up with the difficulty of the mob you have to kill to get it. Sandstorm is a lot easier and overall better.
"The Sandstorm Cloak (Ossirian, AQ20) is naturally higher in tank points than this one due to its +1% dodge, 71 MORE armor than this one and +6 defense."
as you already know this cloak got 0.5% crit and dodge and 7 more stam, so what it all comes down too is if you want a cloak with high stam or you want a clock with average stamina + some other stats.
"The Elementium Threaded Cloak (Chromaggus, BWL) is better than this one as well, due to its 100 greater armor and +2% dodge."
More or less the same as above.
I think most warriors who are able to get this, are trying to get as much stamina as possible, so imo this is better than the two cloaks you mentioned, even though they are very nice too.
There's finally a epic +Def cloak, I hope to god this looks just as awesome as the Redoubt cloak is. Because this is a cloak I want, as I am a Warrior. =)
5g says it short tattered and yellow
Someone post a image of it. O_o
This thing is great for both. Lucky us!
It's quite decent for Ferals as well. Toss a 1% dodge on it and you have a shifting cloak with defense... and better stats : )
Sick cloak btw !
I just submitted a pic of this
It's long and yellow
i still hope that maybe someday blizzard can fit it in to actually come up with some cool artwork for cloaks because in my opinion there aren't a lot of good looking ones around.
Its got 10 agi, and 19 stamina, and the defence is good for PvP
