Legendary cloaks

Gaze of the Black Prince

12

I never thought I’d be completing Wrathion’s legendary chain on more than one character especially when you can still get an Ordos kill without it (thanks to my main) but with the recent buff and Deeds of Valor addition, I’ve been able to get my hunter past the 3K hump. It still took me three weeks to get there with the valor cap and only a week of double valor but the deeds make great use of those extra Timeless Coins.

Now with the Gaze of the Black Prince added today, I’m also looking at completing the cloak on my mage whose up to The Strength of One’s Foes.

Beginning Tuesday, June 17 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, through Monday, June 30 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, we’ll be applying the Gaze of the Black Prince buff which will increase the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It will also increase the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line including: the Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, or Titan Runestones.

To test the drop rate, I queued for the Gates of Retribution having only completed the first section of SoO last weekend. Funnily enough, I zoned in to find a couple of people complaining about no real change to their sigil count while another said he had gained an extra ten or so. I was happy to walk out with four and some loot as well so I look forward to collecting my last seven very soon.

Drop List

  • Sigil of Power – 10 total: Drops from 36 bosses – all Tier 14 bosses (4 in Terrace of Endless Spring, 6 in Heart of Fear, 6 in Mogu’shan Vaults), all Tier 15 bosses (12 in Throne of Thunder), and first two wings of Siege of Orgrimmar (8 total in Vale of Eternal Sorrows, Gates of Retribution). Objective of The Strength of One’s Foes. Must be completed before you get your legendary gem.
  • Sigil of Wisdom – 10 total: Drops from 36 bosses – all Tier 14 bosses (4 in Terrace of Endless Spring, 6 in Heart of Fear, 6 in Mogu’shan Vaults), all Tier 15 bosses (12 in Throne of Thunder), and first two wings of Siege of Orgrimmar (8 total in Vale of Eternal Sorrows, Gates of Retribution). Objective of The Strength of One’s Foes. Must be completed before you get your legendary gem.
  • Secrets of the Empire – 20 total: Drops from 20 bosses – all wings of Throne of Thunder (12 bosses) and first two wings of Siege of Orgrimmar (8 total in Vale of Eternal Sorrows, Gates of Retribution). Objective of Secrets of the First Empire. Must be completed before you get your legendary meta-gem.
  • Titan Runestone – 12 total: Drops from 14 bosses – the last two wings of Throne of Thunder (6 total in Halls of Flesh-Shaping, Pinnacle of Storms) and first two wings of Siege of Orgrimmar (8 total in Vale of Eternal Sorrows, Gates of Retribution). Objective of Echoes of the Titans. Must be completed before you get Chapter III: Two Princes.

At the moment I have A Change of Command left to do on my hunter after completing my PVP requirement in only three matches – woot! I forgot how fun PVP can be on my hunter (even though I had no PVP gear) so it makes me feel more inclined to PVP – at least on my priest, which I know Cool wants to do more of.

So does this buff change anything for you or have you done the chain on more than one toon already?

Seems my post the other day about Ordos worked, not only did I manage to kill him yesterday… he actually dropped something. I think Derevka inadvertently gave me some of his luck. Better still, I didn’t have to reforge a thing.

Last weekend I completed Downfall, the last section of the Siege of Orgrimmar. All I can say is wow, that last scene was disturbing but I was excited to find out the identity of the new warchief. Great choice imo.

…not to mention the alliance version.

It was great to see this tree blooming amidst of the recent devastation of the Vale, much like flying through the Barrens after Deathwing’s destruction.

Here’s the cutscene played out after Garrosh’s defeat.

Oh and I’m glad the technical issues were fixed after the mini patch last night. Trying to load into Org after so many attempts was not fun.

After some difficulty getting a raid together for Niuzao, the last Celestial I needed for The Emperor’s Way, I managed to get my quest done before heading off to see Wrathion and Lorewalker Cho in the Seat of Knowledge. It was here that I witnessed a very cool cutscene retelling my very own storyline over the last few months.

Cooler still was walking outside to see yourself on display.

On the other hand, I wasn’t expecting to see the wings proc so often though. I can understand when you’re casting spells but I think it will get old pretty quickly otherwise. Never-the-less it feels great to have it completed. The last thing I have to do is kill Garrosh for Judgement of the Black Prince below.

As a reminder, here’s the series of quests we had:

  1. A Reckoning
  2. Celestial Blessings – I’m still quite amazed at the attention my video received from this
  3. Cloak of Virtue
  4. Preparing to Strike
    Meet Me Back at the Inn
  5. A Timeless Discovery
  6. Secrets of the Timeless Isle
    The Emperor’s Way
  7. A Pandaren Legend
  8. Judgment of the Black Prince
