Legendary cloaks with only 600 ilvl?

I can tell you than 99.99% of the players with a ilvl 600 cloak put the 2/2 upgrade on them so we have a 608 ilvl cloak and downgrade the ilvl of the cloak it's not a good idea... Specially if the proc is not so good for your class/spec.

I'm not telling than the procs are bad, but I don't see the point of chosing between 8 ilvl and a tank/dps/healing proc.

Maybe you can change the ilvl of the legendaries cloaks to 608 or alow us to upgrade it. But plz don't give us 10000 post of theorycrafters about the legendary cloak.

TYVM :)

In the current PTR build (17153) apparently not...

Only an issue for ilvl mongers.

No, please do. I need to know more about the proc. A flat 5k dps DoT proc seems extraordinarily lackluster. As long as the uptime is greater than 30%, it'll be better than the ~1500 dps I gain from the upgrade on the cloak, but we're talking same ballpark here, and that's disappointing.

If it's actually going to be legendary quality, I feel like it should have better stats baseline than the baseline purple 600 cloak at the very least, not the same. That is of course unless the proc rates on them are ridiculous then I suppose it wouldn't be too much of an issue, however it would still feel weird putting on a legendary quality item and losing stats (as opposed to the 608 cloak).

My problem is not that the legendary cloak cannot be upgraded. it's more than the legendary ilvl 600 cloak has the same stats as the epic 600 ilvl cloak.. now from my experience if a piece of gear is say 463 ilvl. and is uncommon. a rare 463 has better stats. or an epic 463 has even higher stats. therefore the legendary 600 should have more even than the epic 608. nuff said.

I kind of agree, at least from an aesthetics standpoint.

There isn't a logical basis for anyone to say "I don't want the legendary cloak, it's a stat downgrade" but it does actually seem a bit silly for it to be lower level than what you're destroying in order to make it. Even if they just made it baseline 608 or 610, that would make it less silly, hehe.

But I mean... I won't exactly complain about keeping a 600 cloak with a ridiculously good proc on it. Might as well be the Shroud of Turin.

Stats have been normalized between item qualities since the start of Cata, so this is nothing new.

However, allowing the original cloak to be upgraded seems like an oversight if the legendary version cannot be. I'd expect them to either allow an upgrade or raise it to be base 608.

This hasn't been true since cataclysm. Item quality has nothing to do with item budget any more. Compare a 372 green from jade forest with a 372 epic from heroic t11 content.

Blizzard didn't think this one out or doesn't care. The item level we gained from getting the cloak in 5.3 is a larger upgrade then the proc will be now that we have closed a lot of gap on that cloak in item level.

It could be the item upgrades on the epic cloak will carry over to the legendary version. They did something similar for the Season 12 Elite gear.

This is not surprising, but in the same breath, it is exactly what happened with Val'anyr (People using ToC weapons? Buff the legendary!). If it isn't fixed before live, it's a good bet that it'll be fixed shortly thereafter.
