I’ve been wearing the Shawl of the Old maid for a little while now.
So I went looking for what would be considered an upgrade. Checked Shadow Priest.com’s gear list because thats just what you do.. and the Shawl is #15 on the list.
So I go oh dear, I hadn’t realised I had fallen that behind on BIS for Cloaks. I better not be passing on practically any Spellcaster cloaks in Ulduar – and to be honest I’m not sure I have actually seen many cloaks drop in general.
So there on that list at #7 is the Deathchill cloak – and It was in the AH for 600 gold, so I brought it – and Embroidered it and equiped it and had a look at my stats.
and by Equiping the Deathchill Cloak I lost
26 mana regen
and only gained
1.61% haste which works out to be
0.02 secs off my Mindblast/vt
and a 0.04 sec reduced time on my Mindflay
I don’t understand how it got ranked so much more higher, and I thought I understood the stat rating somewhat – but the effect of losing the Intellect and spirit from the Shawl – Is NOT worth 1.61 Haste.
So yeah.. Just wasted 600 gold..
( and yes I know 66-59 does not = 11) but thats what it did to my spellpower.. Im trying to find a current source that explains why but all my googalage brings up all the older stuff.
