Making it ideal (stat-wise) now and it would stomp all over ZA/ZG weapons. It's fairly trivial to obtain so we're just not really willing to do that.


Its the same ilvl of a ZA weapon though... its like saying heres a PURPLE but its really just a blue item. Runalong jr and be happy anyway.

Upgrade it...reduce the drop rate.


That's like saying purple vanity pets are better than blue vanity pets.


It's a vanity item with stats. Suck it up.

It's available in the 4.2 daily hub. :D


:O HUZZAH! This is wonderful news!

Wait, will it be the same pet, or the same pet with a different name but both count as separate pets such as Lando's X.T vs. Lil' X.T?

The solution we're considering would be to make it a 346 blue, but there are some designer-y issues and side effects of what a change like that would cause. Either way I don't think we would be keeping it purple and giving it Int or otherwise making the stats more ideal.

But anyway, those cloaks are pretty sweet, huh?


I hate to disagree here, but the valor-soon-to-be-justice cloaks are better, and are actually just as accessible. I have no reason to enter Ahune anymore except for the gold and the chance at the pet. I was looking forward to getting the staff that so eluded me last year. And the justice points? Are... pathetic. I mean, Ahune is easier than any heroic boss I've faced so far, but 25 justice points(assuming 25 because I got 27 with guild perk)? It's lame.

I was disappointed that Ahune wasn't better tied in with the Cataclysm events. Rag and Ahune go way back, but none of that was tapped into.

My constructive criticism is that Midsummer feels more and more like a yearly "phase" instead of an event. I do love going around to all the fires, but, I hope Hallow's End and Brewfest have some interesting surprises.

Yes, thank you for a very nice non-raiding Holy Pally cloak :)

There's a difference between ideal stats and actually having a primary stat. I think most would be okay if the secondary stats were a little underwhelming, but being completely devoid of primary stats does seem a bit much, even as someone who doesn't have any particular need for it.

Also, why is it okay to stomp all over the zg/za cloak (to use your words), but not the zg/za weapons?

Honestly I think people just want the good gear for not a lot of work. Cloaks offer a lot less of a bonus as an individual piece than a 2H weapon, so those aren't as big a deal. Not to mention you can buy cloaks with Valor Points anyways.
I don't really need a cloak, but I'll take the staff. At least it looks cool. Might be a little better than what I have too. It would be nice if it were A LOT better then the 318 staff I have but w/e.
It did have Int as it made it an awesome hunter weapon (in wrath) before the focus change (minus the spell power)


and the lack of agility...

I don't need to suck it up when stating my opinion. Thanks for forcing yours.
Cant you reforge the stam into intel?

You cannot reforge primary stats.

It's just as much my opinion that you should suck it up. Your opinion is a demand that Blizzard upgrade it and reduce the drop rate. I don't think you exactly have grounds to get high and mighty.

Until 4.2 and we do the Firelands daily and get an ilevel 365 cloak? I guess.

So, next week?

Sense of humor is lacking in this one.

I don't get why it's a problem with it being better then ZA/ZG weapons? It's supposed to be highly desirable and you only have one chance per day to get it. Not to mention that when 4.2 comes out very soon 359 weapons will be very easy to get.
