people dont walk around with spell resist gear, but you need 90 penetration to penetrate Cloak of Shadows =⁄
This and the level 20 version are pretty much the only decent things you can put in your trinket slots before Outland as a caster. Worth the time investment at lvl20 and lvl40 just for the stamina bonus, even if you're not interested in the spell penetration.
Increased penetration is awesome... it'll allow me to handle mobs of a greater level than normal, deal with those magic resistant mobs and generally get all the damage possible out of the spells at hand.
Let's face it if you're a mage and your spells are being resisted wholesale, essentially you're just a guy holding a stick.
Thanks for pointing that out... but it will help me against mobs who are resistant to the kind of spell I'm using on them so it's not a complete loss...

Otherwise, very few mobs and raid-level bosses have a substantial amount of resistance to overcome

Can u wear both this and the Rune of Duty @ the same time?
After patch 5.0.4 this item still has spell penetration stats, making it essentially useless outside of the stamina buff.
This now provides 20 Hit rating, which is useful even beyond level 40. At level 60, this provides 2% Melee and Ranged Hit and 2.5% Spell Hit.
Now provides crit. This is the second time this trinket has had its stats changed.
Patch 5.1 ~
Spell Penetration was removed and replaced by PvP Power.
This Item used to give 20 Spell Penetration but it was changed in 5.1 to give 20 Hit rating.
