Good cloak, for rogues not worth the badges though, better off with Drape of the Dark Reavers (
). War Cloak gives 15 AP more but Drape gives +15 hit rating.
The only comparisn I see between this and cloak of the inciter is the hit rating. It might be more beneficial for somebody else, but for a rogue i'd say this is where its at.
considering the droprate of the Drape of the Dark Reavers beeing >10% you wont have to wait long.
If your raid is good enough that is :)
Not worth the badges unless you have already purchased everything else you want. You can run non-heroic old hillsbrad and get cloak of impulsiveness (
) which is nearly identical to this cape (-3 agility, -2 stamina, -6 attack power) and save your badges for a bloodlust brooch, ring of arathi warlords, etc.
Edit: But if you're big on looks this might just be worth the badges :P sexiest cloak in game by far.
The Cloak of Malice is your a great alternative with similar stats. For DPS classes, Blood Knight only gives you an extra .57 DPS gain from Malice, and 30 HP which is negligible really... so unless you are in dire need of DPS gear, then I would advise not to go crazy grabbing Badges of Justice for this. It is a sexy cloak tho, but the expense might be better spent on Bloodlust Brooch (41 Badges OUCH!)
also sold by the Sha'tar Vendors.
Here's a small list of feasible alternatives that are a good bit easier to acquire. I put in parenthesis the points gained/lost from using these cloaks vs. Blood Knight.
Cloaks with the a very similar type of stat focus as Blood Knights are:
Cloak of Malice:
Auchinai Death Shroud:
(-6 Agi, -6 STM, -10 AP, +17 hit)
Cloak of Impulsiveness:
(-3 Agi, -2 STM, -6 AP)
Other possible cloak alternatives for DPSers (varying stat focus tho) are:
Sergeant's Heavy Cloak:
(-21 AGI, +3 STM, +17 crit, +17 Resilience, -14 AP)
(-21 Agi, -21 Stm, +23 Crit, +6 AP, 1 Red Socket with +2 Hit Bonus)
Will be buffed slightly in 2.1:
Great hunter cloak , im using it on my hunter ;D
Rogues actually want to "settle" for ~15% hit +5% from Precision (assuming combat raiding rogue) which is ~225-250hit
Good Rogues hang out at around the cap of 304 without gimping other stats..
I'm sitting at 270hit with Cloak of the Inciter and am pickin this up as soon as I get the badges. Bought the BB and CoV Intent already.
As for why no Dark Reavers, 14 shade kills - 0 drops. Eventually you get sick of waiting :)
This is a fine cloak. Reavers is way better for rogue. The hitcap is 310. (309 but due to display issue it is 310), And alll rogues should be here. if u need the hit, get Inciter or Reaver when it drops, if you need the AP, Get this.
If you were thinking of buying this, stop and farm Ahune instead (at least until July 4th).
However, for 50 more badges you can get Dory's Embrace, which is better than this.
Very nice upgrade! Thank you Bliz.
Old cloak was 19agi 19sta and 40 attack or close to that. Today's patch made this well worth it!
The looks on this thing are sexah!
Great looks, awesome for pvp too. Good balance of stam and offensive stats.
Enough with the hunter item...rogue item..etc. Its from a vendor, anyone who wants one bad enough can get it if they save up the badges.
better than the cloak from Prince Malchezaar for rogues (5 more AP , more crit and armour, but 9 less stam)
This seems to be, by far, one of the best melee dpser cloaks out there. What really is appealing about this cloak is...no insane raids required. Making this a heroic reward was really awesome, and makes it much more attainable than other cloaks of equal "value/scale". Just run your 5 heroic mechs and 'tada' new epic :)
I really like this on my rogue. Far too many players seem to forget the value of stamina on a rogue. The high agility, ap, and stam on this cloak makes it ideal for rogues ...though not exclusively for them.
Toss on a +12 agility enchant to this cloak and it cant be beat! The Vengence wrap and others just dont compare. People put too much blind faith into attack power buffs on items - forgetting that agility is a key aspect on rogues to round out their crit rating, dodge, and more!
I often hear the arguement "your a rogue not a tank..dont worry about your dodge" - and then watch said rogue get 1 shot hit dead in a heroic...even with evasion. Why? No dodge rating.
Dodge is still a key stat on rogues - in a number of heroids, pvp raids, and well...anything Ive had to 'evasion tank' on my rogue. With my rogues dodge rating almost right at 29%, when I hit evasion ...NOTHING...even in heroics and raids can hit me. This few seconds of evasion glory can often save a party: giving a tank time to regain aggro, or the party a chance to burn down the target.
On that note: rogues do need stamina for when they do get hit. I've seen a number of rogues at lvl 70 in great items running around with less than 7400 health...that's appaling for raiding, pvp, and heroics. Rogues are not tanks, however they still do get hit for a number of reasons....a rogue is only useful if its still alive after being hit.
So yes...imo this is one of the best cloaks for rogues in the game. The stats are awesome for many dps melee classes. Imo I think the
is perhaps the #1 cloak for rogues / melee dpsers as of the time of this post.
Requires Level 70
Equip: Increases attack power by 68.
Considering where Thalassian Wildercloak drops..I'm not holding my breath for it anytime soon.
i know i sound like a n00b, but how do i get the badges? Id like to get this item when i reach 70, >_< 31 bars away
Hm, im saving for this right now, and im a hunter, Is it good for me as well as for a rogue? its got all taht i need, agi, stam, +ap, but not intel (dint expect it to have intel) so saying that, should i get this as a hunter instead of some other cape?
Just got this with my feral druid ftw, one of the best cat dps cloaks in the game and easy to get. A nice upgrade from my
and after i got the +12 agi enchant, headed to Eye of the Storm and broke 3k shred crit for the first time (3116 against a priest ftw)
A wicked cape and it matches my gladiator's dragonhide gloves :))
Got this today on my hunter finally, Heroic mech seems to be the easiest to do, but the Elemental boss is a pain, we downed her on second try though, our group was amazing, got to calculator and downed him for my last badge, after that i got this, and now im sitting at 7846 health on my hunter, its awesome, and my attack power shot up to, i had cloak of the craft before this, so it was a nice upgrade, well ne wayz its worth it for Hunters, dps warr, and rogues the most, its useful to others to, but not as much so
It needs +hit
Am a pally. planning on getting this cloak. plus (for looks) the rest of the BE pvp gear and ill have the blood knight tabard.
FULL BLOOD KNIGHT EQUIPTMENT (ill look like a badass)! also want this sword
I have this on my Hunter, great cloak. If you can't get the cloak off Shade to drop this is defiantly a good alternative.
Incidentally, does anyone else find it ironic that the Blood Knight War Cloak is primarily a hunter/etc item (not something a paladin would normally use), while the Farstrider Defender's Cloak is primarily a warrior/paladin tank item (and _not_ something a Ranger-type would use)?
don't get this thing now... you can get one with exactly the same stats free from lord ahune. soon
