Awesome cloak, one of the best available outside raids I guess.
Any reason this cannot be disenchanted?
This seems ridiculously good for a normal drop. It is much better than the "epic" tanking cloak that tailors can make, not to mention any other rare cloak pre-raid. This makes me think this has got to be a heroic drop. Anybody know?
According to a GM it not being disenchantable is a bug and will be fixed in time. So bank it if you want the shard sometime in near future.
As of 2.0.7 it can now be disenchanted.
Don't know if it's meant to be like that but got a Void Crystal out of it today when disenchanting it.
Does this drop in non-heroic?
Any serious tanking warrior needs to simply farm normal steamvaults until this drops. Its an absolutely exceptional cloak.
Perfect distribution of equip bonuses, hefty stamina and massive dodge. Alot of tanking warriors use this past Kara, past Gruul, even far into Serpentshrine.
You'll use this for a long, long time.
Steamvaults is a fairly quick and easy level 70 instance so farming for this is not to bad and you'll be in here for Bold gloves and a few odds and ends anyways. This is one of those great blues that's going to last you a good long while.
I'll add, that in the past two days, I have done at a minimum (and no exaggeration), of 30 runs, and have yet to see the cloak. It's quite disappointing to be totally honest. It makes me want to rake my eyes out with a fork.
Finally got it tonight and can get rid of my ugly Burnoose of Shifting Ages. Will enchant it with Dodge, as Nexus Crystals are dirt cheap these days and I can now solo the Un'goro Elementals for Guardian Stones without problem.
This is actually the best tanking cloak in the entire game. Look through wowhead for epic cloaks. Nothing beats this. Nihilum's MT had this cloak equipped when they downed Illidan.
Been farming this for around a month totalling 44 Kalithresh kills and have yet to see this thing drop. Already got the mats for the +12 Dodge rating enchant, got the guardian stones in 34 kills. Sooner or later this will drop for me, Burnoose will do for now till then.
Dropped the first time I killed Kalithresh, and I got the cloak. The second time I killed him it dropped as well and I won the greed roll so I got a shard.
Guess it's just luck but hey, I'm not complaining.
Best cloak pre al'ar i smacked a 12 dodge rating enchant onto this cloak and its causing me 2 have 2% more dodge now, BEST CLOAK EVERRR
this dropped for me and naturally i need rolled only tanking cloak id seen so far
...and a druid rolled on it for dodge rating -.-
Dropped for me, along with my chestpiece, on my first ever steamvaults run. I was thrilled, they were my first 2 tanking pieces as a paladin.
Burnoose of Shifting Ages
is just as effective as this cape, and a whole lot easier to farm.
for a proof of how the
is just as effective as the
Best tanking cloak in game for warr-pally
Droprate cant be that high, I have done 16 runs for it. 1 drop, but druid took it.
i did a run in the Steamvaults for the first time last night.
the Boss of the Dungeon dropped this cloak on normal mode, i am a Defense Warrior and i can't wait to wear this when i turn 70 in 2 more bars of xp.
Good luck to all who are wanting this cloak, it certainly is nice!
Dropped my First run :D Kara key frag and amazing cape awesome.
actually, block is considered avoidance for purposes of pally tanks reaching uncrushable. Anything that prevents an unmitigated hit is considered avoidance be it a dodge, block, or parry.
This is arguably the best cloak in the game for a protection Paladin. Most protection Paladins (including myself) are aware that too much avoidance will drain your mana pool very quickly, items like this with a balance of avoidance AND mitigation are idea for us.
I'm tanking at MH/BT level and I still use this cape - looking at other capes, I can't see myself ever upgrading from this.
Though the item level is much lower than other capes, don't be fooled, the itemisation is awesome - in my opinion Blizzard's best creation to date.
I've been using
for a long time now, should I replace it with
or stick with Devilshark, I like the extra Stam, Armour and Dodge on the epic but lately with Patch 2.4 my block value is going to hell with the new SSO badge gear. Stick with the blue or get the epic ?
Block value, for warriors, should not be completely written off - It may not count for a huge amount on mitigation, but shield slam is made better with block value, and is still our highest tps move, and in a situation where warriors tps is not scaling as well as palis or druids in comparison to the dps of the raid, I would suggest this cloak as the better cloak for raiding trash, five manning, etc where total avoidance and hit point totals are not so important as maintaining threat on mobs that aren't feeding you unlimited rage.
So - imo that no one asked for :P - excellent cloak, every warrior tank should have it in their inventory, and if you're really going for max avoidance/hp, used situationally in exchange with an equally easily obtained Slikk's.
Does anyone know the drop chance for this couple site's have it at about 13% but someothers have it as low as 3%?
What about the best enchant for this cloak? Do most people still go with Dodge for pure avoidance or do some go with Major Armor to help with mitigation? The cloak already comes with 150% of the dodge rating that the enchant gives, so is it better to boost the lacking stat? I'm guessing it's more of a case per case basis on this one then anything. Could even throw steelweave on here without cringing I suppose if the 490 hadn't been reached.
not currently DE'able
I got it on my 5th run through. It's easy on normal, as long as u have a decent group. And I'm only Revered with CE. :P
Drops from Warlord Kalitresh at a ridiculous rate. Alot of people have grinded Steamvaults until Exalted, and still haven't seen it drop yet.
Yes it drops in Normal and Heroic.
According to wowhead comments about this item
It does drop in normal mode (!)
I hope blizz doesnt nerf it like they did with fel cleansed paudrons (even though they improved a different item instead therefore)
With the help of this cloak (
upgrade over my old Bogstrok Scale Cloak) I managed to raise the amount I block for by over 100 in just a few days of instance/quest farming. Great cloak, definitely the best pre-raid at 70.
I think that is the best tanking cape.
Even better than epic ones.
I feel very fortunate! 1k from revered and had this cloak drop. Pally in the run with me and he graciously allowed me to have it uncontested.
I hope what I've read about this being the finest pre Kaz tanking cloak being true.
I still have a couple more runs before I can start the Coilfang heroics so I hope my gloves drop soon.
You all say it is the best cloak pre Kara.
Then please show me a cloak that can compete with this.
I think it is the best cloak available right now.
Got this and the Breastplate of the Righteous on back-to-back runs of Steamvaults today. Definitely a great tanking cloak for both warriors and pallies.
20 runs and exaulted.. it finally dropped today and a %@%^%@^ *!@#$%^ rolls need and wins
the only cape that can compete in game right now is from the 2nd boss of the eye which has been killed by like 5 guilds worldwide
Ran this damn place 20 times so far no cape :P Still using Cryptfiend silk cape from naxx
as there is no other blue cape in the game that compares to that :P
Got it today finally after 35 (!) runs.
Every damn item dropped (included epic-recipe) - but this one never dropped. Was so pissed off.
I never set a foot in that damn vault again.
as druid i have this cloak and
the second gives me +1250armor,
this one gives 1.25% dodge and +9def...so i still wonder which to use :)
Just ran SV for the first time ever. Got the tanking necklace and this on drop. Happy time for me :)
Without a doubt one of the best tank capes outside of raiding. I dont know if something changed in the patch, but it dropped for me on my second visit to the steamvaults!
Without a doubt one of the best tank cloaks period. About 8 runs past exhaulted. *Sigh* had my +12 dodge mats ready for weeks now ... 10% drop feels more like 1% for me i have way to many runs under my belt
As far as I can tell, this is the best tanking cape available with the only upgrade being from A'lar in The Eye. The other cloaks that drop in other raids seem inferior.
You get this, you'll get value out of it, that's for sure.
Prot tank here....
Almost exalted with the cenarion expedition now after doing endless runs of SV last month... Still haven't seen this cloak drop even once.
Same goes for the deff necklace from the 2e boss.... both must have the crappiest droprates on the planet...:(
Hope i really get it before my 30th run :(
I wonder if I have better chances in heroic style SV... anyone got a clue ? (Don't believe the above mentioned thottbot drop% anymore)
Yay! I'm wearing the same cloak as Kungen
I think the percentage chance this thing drops is horribly wrong. I've done 33 runs now and still no cape has dropped. 30 normal and 3 heroic.
~8 runs on my warrior and it hasn't dropped.
3 runs on my rogue and it's dropped twice. Watched it get sharded once (bear tank) and go to a holy pally for his tank set on the other.
Sub Title: Lesson Learned
Warrior tank (prot) here. I must have gotten this the 1st or 2nd time I ran SV. Until I caught this thread (looking for better) I thought it was at the end of a quest chain.
In fact I got the whole bold armor set (except helm which I don't want) the 1st time or 1st few times I've run any of the instances that held them.
Then I laughed at my rogue friend for having to do Sethekk like over 20 times to get an Assassination gear piece. So now just about all wanted after that pre-kara/heroics was a defensive trinket (Adamantine Figurine) from SL.
Now Lower City, even exalted, really has nothing I can use, yet just yesterday I finally got the darned thing, been exalted with Lower City for a while now not on purpose, I stopped counting how many times I tried at around 20.
So the moral of the story - don't laugh at other's misfortune. ...the WoW police probably are watching and flip a switch on you..
I'm still waiting for this cape, been exhalted some time now, and hopefully it must be close to my time.
I won't even bother going there if there is anyone, and I mean ANYONE, that would even think of rolling on it.
I wouldn't want to see this drop (finally) and not get it. I deserve it by now :]
For a Prot Paladin, it's the best cloak for a very, very long time. Nothing else comes close, not in Kara, not in SSC, or not from the heroic tokens vendor. Those other cloaks are passable for warriors/druids, but are pure crap for Prot Paladins.
I am a lvl 68 warrior and this dropped for me on my first run! I cant wait to use it. Oh Sry to everyone else that is still waiting on it.....
Baghdaddy-lvl 68 Whisperwind
Second or third time with my main (tank) in there and this dropped. Quite nice.
guess i got lucky but i got the cape the necklace and the bold gauntlets in my first sv run. go figure
10 runs still no drop. i would never put up with this if it wasn't so good
First run and it dropped.
I'm 69, still can't wear it =)
Didn't know it was so good compared to what's coming next (heroic, kara).
I thought about keeping the +12 agi for an epic cape, but if you're right about it being so good, I think I'll put it in.
I'm also exalted with CE and the cape FINALLY dropped. I rolled need.... and so did the lock. I rolled a 1. :*(
If the abhove-listed drop rates are accurate, it is no mystery at all why the lot of you have been having so much trouble getting it to drop. Most of you don't even seem to be running SteamVaults in Heroic mode!
Just had a run with my priest and the tank (Warrior) who had a much worse tanking cloak, pressed greed.
I asked him why he did not want it and he said... "uh thats not good".
So much for that ;)
Just got this on my first kill of this boss on my 70 prot pally.
Technically it was my second run of the instance but the first time the group's dps sucked too much to take out the tanks so we couldn't down the end boss, this time it was a lot easier and lo and behold, the one item I wanted so badly from this boss was mine!
Kind of makes up for over a dozen SL runs within a few days of hitting 70 and only getting the Greatsword of Horrid Dreams out of the three tanking upgrades I need from there. I can tell it's going to be a long road to gear up for Kara.
why do most people put the 12 agi enchant instead of the 12 dodge enchant on this cape?
Joy of joys, it fropped before I was even really looking for it. On top of that, I got no opposition from the group! /snatchupgreatcape
Got it on my first SV run with my prot warrior :)
Got this one on my 1st and only Steamvaults run. Guess I was lucky. Great tanking cape, replaced the Bogstrok cape from Rockmar the Clacker.
Just be glad it drops from normal and not heroic cause you can only go to heroics once a day :P, i still dont have this on my tank, but i did run heroic sv a total 43 times for pontifex kilt on my priest, thats yes, over 1 month running same instance once a day :P
This drop rate seems incorrect or i'm the unluckiest person ever. 16 runs and havn't seen it drop so far
