I'm really hoping this model is a placeholder for this item, i've always wanted to see a tattered, ripped looking cloak that wraps almost around the character. Sorta like what the icon looks like.
Drops from the the cache that is held on your factions Gunship. The normal 25 man raid ilevel 264 cloak (this cloak) actually has a yellow socket with a socket bonus of +4agi.
This is shockingly well itemized for mutilate rogues given the importance of attack power and haste after the rise of the 51/18/2 build. It's actually quite comparable to
for that particular spec and is considerably easier to acquire.
This cloak's icon almost looks like a wing.
This would therefore be -supposedly- perfect for a Blood Elf Swords Rogue with long silver hair and the odd ability to cast
Really cool icon... Really bad looks.
This cloak should look like it's icon. Reminds me of Sylvanas cloak.
When deciding between this cape and
Recovered Scarlet Onslaught Cape
i chose the scarlet cape cos it has arpen over haste. I am a hunter. The blue/yellow sockets dont make much difference since a 20 agi gem will just go in either.
I think the point most people are trying to make is that players really shouldn't attempt to take items which only partially benefit them, in other words, not even close to BiS, just stepping stone "upgrades" from whatever garbage they happen to be wearing at the time.
That said, yes, it can be useful to many classes, just pray your Raid leader has a little common sense in regards to loot distribution.
Amusingly, this cape has the same model as the
Dark Soldier Cape
, a Knights of the Ebon Blade rep reward purchased at the Shadow Vault.
