View Full Version : Gemming Cloak of Darkness

12-07-2007, 04:31 AM
I'm fury, and having my Cloak of Darkness crafted tomorrow

101 Armor
23 str
25 sta
[Blue socket]
+2 crit bonus

Increases melee critical strike rating by 24

I'm replaing the classic Royal Cloak of Arathi Kings and debating how to gem this. I'm considering the 3 usuals:

1. +8 hit - to replace the hit lost from the arathi
2. +8 str - because str is good
3. +4 str/+6 sta - to hit the socket bonus

What would YOU do?

for reference, my hit WITH Royal Cloak is currently 136

I have +8 str on mine because I need AP more than health or the +2 crit rating bonus. But if your health is a little low +4str/+6stam is also a good choice.

I'm not dual wield spec so I dont need the hit rating. But having said that this cloak is good enough that it may be worth sacrificing some +hit on this slot and make up the hit rating loss in other slots.
