Patch 8.3 PTR - Legendary Cloak Guide
Wrathion returns in Visions of N'Zoth, and of course he is bringing along a new legendary cloak to aid us in our fight against the Old God. Here is what you need to know about this legendary cloak, Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve.

Note: Engineers cannot enchant this cloak with Goblin Glider.

How to Obtain

Acquiring the initial item level 470 Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve is not hard at all. In fact, you will receive it just by accepting and completing the Black Empire Campaign quest chain upon logging in on patch day. Here is a guide for all parts of the chain. Part 3 specifically deals with the scenario to unlock the cloak.




How to Upgrade Your Cloak
Your Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve will start off humble without any perks other than being 470 item level with 5 corruption resistance, but don't let this fool you. Your primary goal this patch is going to be entering Horrific Visions in order to upgrade your cloak and obtain massive benefits that not only increase its power, but also your corruption resistance and even the appearance!



Increasing the Rank of Your Cloak
Now that you know what you need to do to enter Horrific Visions, now is a good time to explain what completing them does for your cloak. Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve can increase in rank for a total of 15 times before reaching max rank. Every time you increase the rank of your cloak, the following happens.

  • Its item level increases by 2.
  • Its corruption resistance increases, allowing you to potentially wear more corrupted gear.
  • You gain a passive decrease to sanity loss in Horrific Visions by 20% by equipping the cloak. This percentage goes up as the cloak's rank increases.
  • At rank 6, your cloak will receive an on-use effect with a 3 minute cooldown that will dispel any negative corruption effects currently happening to you (by having too high of corruption from gear) and make you immune to these effects for 6 seconds.
  • At ranks 5 and 12 the appearance of your cloak will change.
  • At rank 12 the cloak will also gain the Draconic Empowerment proc effect that has a chance to increase your primary stat for 15 seconds.


Appearance Change
The cloak will change to the middle appearance at rank 5 and the right one at rank 12.



Quest Items Needed for Rank Upgrades
After unlocking Horrific Visions and receiving rank 1 of your cloak, Wrathion will give you a quest to collect the following items from Horrific Visions after each rank up:

  • Ranks 2 - 5
    • Rank 2: The Curse of Stone - Obtained by killing the main boss of Horrific Visions (Alleria or Thrall) and looting the chest at the end. Failing to kill the boss will result in you not obtaining the item for that specific Horrific Vision attempt.
    • Ranks 3 - 5: Torn Page of "The Curse of Stone" - Obtained by killing the main boss of Horrific Visions (Alleria or Thrall) and looting the chest at the end. Failing to kill the boss will result in you not obtaining the item for that specific Horrific Vision attempt.
  • Ranks 6 - 11
    • Rank 6: Fear and Flesh - Found by completing Corrupted or Lost areas of Horrific Visions and looting the chest at the end. These can be seen on the map before starting a Vision by talking to Wrathion before using your vessel. They drain your sanity more and contain harder enemies. Corrupted are less difficult than Lost areas, which are the hardest. The final boss of the Horrific Vision (Alleria or Thrall) doesn't need to be killed as long as you complete the objective of the bonus area.
    • Rank 7 - 11: Torn Page of "Fear and Flesh" - Found by completing Corrupted or Lost areas of Horrific Visions and looting the chest at the end. These can be seen on the map before starting a Vision by talking to Wrathion before using your vessel. They drain your sanity more and contain harder enemies. Corrupted are less difficult than Lost areas, which are the hardest. Each rank will require more pages. The final boss of the Horrific Vision (Alleria or Thrall) doesn't need to be killed as long as you complete the objective of the bonus area.
  • Ranks 12 - 15
    • Rank 12: The Final Truth - Found by completing Lost areas of Horrific Visions and looting the chest at the end. These can be seen on the map before starting a Vision by talking to Wrathion before using your vessel. They drain your sanity the most out of all areas and have the hardest enemies. The final boss of the Horrific Vision (Alleria or Thrall) doesn't need to be killed as long as you complete the objective of the bonus area.
    • Ranks 13 - 15: Torn Page of "The Final Truth" - Found by completing Lost areas of Horrific Visions and looting the chest at the end. These can be seen on the map before starting a Vision by talking to Wrathion before using your vessel. They drain your sanity the most out of all areas and have the hardest enemies. Each rank will require more pages. The final boss of the Horrific Vision (Alleria or Thrall) doesn't need to be killed as long as you complete the objective of the bonus area.
  • Further Progression
    • Your cloak stops ranking up at 15, but you can continue running Horrific Visions with masks active (unlocked in visions to create modifiers you can activate to increase the difficulty further) or by killing N'Zoth on normal or above once a week to receive Malefic Core to further your corruption resistance by 3 each week. At rank 15 the cloak will have 50 corruption resistance and you can keep increasing it until it reaches 125 corruption resistance.
