I'd like to think you can buy a OS cloak, but you could always buy a new gem & socket because there are 3 versions of the sha touch weapon, LFR Regular and Heroic and 5.2 added 2 more variations with the thunderforging bonus so you were meant to use it, then upgrade your beatstick when you cleared the next level of content, not be like "I cant use the gem/socket until I get a heroic quality item". These cloaks don't look like they are going to be replaced anytime before patch 6.0 but I still like to hope we can grab the other (for a price or clear another celestial's trial) so people like me can gear OS too. And it's epic so you can xmog it.
Too bad I'll be working on the 5.2 part still seeing how secrets are just SO EASY to get. (only took 6 weeks to get my first one.)
No one seems bothered by the item level of 600? It just seems a little excessive to me, considering current thunderforged heroic is only 541, and normal t16 will likely be around 540-550...I get that it's meant to be a 'legendary' achievement in getting the cloak, but having the cloak THAT much better than anything else that is going to come from this expansion, makes it far too powerful, and any player that cannot get it straight away will be at a disadvantage (since presumably these cloaks will be BiS)...
"Wrathion: Great Crane, you have not seen what I have seen. The fires that burn the skies will return. It is inevitable--the Burning Legion will find Azeroth. Seas of blood, cities in ruins. Who are we? One divided world to stand against a legion. You speak of hope--believe me, the thinnest sliver of hope that we might somehow survive the devastation is all that sustains me."A clue about the next expa will be about the legion? =)
To start A Reckoning do you have to completed the legendary questline of patch 5.0 5.1 and 5.2 first?
Holy *!@# those cloaks are powerful.
ilvl 600 - mother of god
At first read makes me think they are bringing stuff back from the burning crusade
I am in the same boat. Would be nice if the power ones would drop more often.
Well the 12 titan runestones from 5.2 that can only be received from the last 6 bosses in Throne is pretty bad. It's worse than the Sigils since you have less bosses that can drop them.
"Legendary" questline...It's only purpose is a worthlessly greedy way by Blizzard to obtain money, available for any Removed in LFR.
I didn't do any of the earlier Wrathion stuff, Can I just jump in and start this one?
