I don't know if it was intentional, but you guys missed one of the best effects from SF in the War Runes.  The proc on the pet cloak (Cloak of Crystalline Depths) is amazing.  As it is, my inquisitor won't ever get to wear a DoV cloak because no amount of blue stats can make up for losing that effect.  I'm hoping it was just an oversight to not include that proc as a War Rune, but I've seen stranger things before.

That cloak was from a heroic instance and not a raid mob.  The war runes are based upon previous raid procs and even some of those are missing (i.e. Empty Soul).

It was a a decent Item but I would never wear that cloak over a DOV raid cloak.  Parse out the healing from the cloak mobs.  Its extremely weak and the AE blocker is to random to count on.

Except that the SF cloak was based on the raid item from Shard of Hate . . . Star of Malice.

The main problem here is not what you expect though; it's that SOE has said, and continues to practice a discontinuation of itemization for melee priests.

I'd use that effect all the time, Dog AE Immune Proc + that clock is an amazing combo. It's overall a great item for trash killing.

For any fight where you can melee something (adds or named, doesn't matter) a decent amount, it's the best survivability cloak available.  If you block one aoe for the group, you've already prevented ~100k damage.  And as for it being too random, all procs are random.  This one is actually much easier to manage than most.  Just download a ui mod that allows you to see when it's up.

And as Banditman pointed out, it was originally a raid effect.  

If they don't feel like adding this as a War Rune, so be it.  But I just thought I should point out a heroic cloak from the previous expansion is more powerful than anything available this tier on 95% of encounters.

HoDD / HotLR were both crap as soon as they made them not crit.  Even more so for a slower caster since you get fewer hits to trigger the effect.

But is not supposed to.

Same with WWoM.

If any item proc crits, it's a bug.
