Come Patch 2.3, we're going to be seeing a new damage casting cloak WITH CRIT for the PvP-minded. It's been a long time coming for sure, and while the stats may not seem like that big a change from the Sergeant's Heavy Cape, the addition of + crit really is noteworthy. Here are the stats:
- 34 Stam
- 15 Int
- 16 Spell Crit
- 23 Resil
- 27 Spell Damage/Heal
Pretty nice, eh? I mean, it's not the sickest thing in the world, but for what I'm hoping will be an easy-to-acquire item, it's not bad at all, especially for Destro Warlocks. ;)
There's also word of a slew of new trinkets that will be introduced in 2.3. I don't have much info on the details, but here's what a blue had to say on the topic:
All versions of the trinket have a click effect to gain 1750 max health (kind of like the old lifegiving gem effect), along with a passive effect (your choice of 47 spell damage, 40 spell crit rating, 80 attack power, 40 melee crit rating, or 88 healing).
These seem like it could be pretty sweet, but I think we're gonna need some more info before we can pass judgment. How long does the effect last? What's the cooldown? Is that extra max health immediate or must it be replenished? I dunno... I guess we'll just have to wait and see where this one goes.
