I was hoping that perhaps the Legendary effects would simply be "enchants" in a sense. You just sort of apply them to whatever Legendary cloak you chose. That way healers who don't need Spirit can pick the "DPS" cloak, and DPS who need hit can choose the Spirit cloak. I know a couple int DPS don't use Spirit, but you get my point.
It also bothers me on an unrelated and totally petty note that the DPS version is the Jade Serpent cloak, and yet I put down a Jade Serpent statue, and all of my spells are green... totally ruining my immersion!
