this thing's flown under the radar for a lot of leather users but it's surprisingly potent when combined with Seal of Diurna's Chosen, which only procs on fire damage (which most leather users don't have easy access to). according to raidbots it's my biggest crafted upgrade by far.
A 386 ilv cowl does like 1%~1.6% of my total damage in both cleave and single target fights, which is to say, it's Not Great on my outlaw rogue.
HOWEVER. With a heroic

, the ring procs very often through the Cowl's fire damage, enough to make the ring deal ~3-3.8% of my total damage, which is VERY significant for a passive proc. The Flaring Cowl absolutely procs the ring enough to make great use of the ring, and the ring itself also has my BiS stats.
Is it worth crafting the cowl just for the ring? Maybe.
Is the cowl worth it on its own? No not really, it took me a long ass time to find an elemental leatherworker, and I needed a niche engineering item to obtain one of the BoP materials. It also has my least desirable stats, and I couldn't find a good elemental leatherworker to craft it at a higher item level, so I've a lot of biases against it. It's also on a tier slot, which might be a problem for some folks (and it's absolutely worse than any tier set).
Still! Pretty coollllllll.
Healer PALADIN = I decided to craft this to a holy pala, (forgot about the passive bonus if i wear plate -.-), to abuse Seal of Diurna proc. Well, it's mehh i guess, 3 mythic+9 run DMG % =
Flaring Cowl =
Broodkeeper Blaze =
4.5% (13% uptime)
5.4% (14% uptime)
4.9% (18% uptime)
Given that we have low dmg, these % numbers are not that awesome, but not horrible either. But i lost 5% intellect (~329) because of the "Armor Skills" passive. Extra downside = you can't transmog this helm to anything else if you are not a leather wearer.
Now clap for me.
also it's great for transmog runs old raid/dungeons... it constantly kills packs of enemies you don't even have to cast/hit anything.
