Introducing the Legendary Bloodrune Cloak

GM Thandiwe unveils The Legendary Bloodrune Cloak. These highly scripted cloaks will work on a whole new level with a moonshard pendant that contains a *matching* Legendary Bloodrune. She details the amazing verbs with and without the Legendary Bloodrune at the officials, using the Troll-king Legendary Bloodrune as her first example: http://bit.ly/2BWFJ9T and the Yeti: http://bit.ly/2o63keT and now the Griffin:

Subj: Legendary Bloodrune Cloak
Hello!

I’m here to tell you about the new Legendary Bloodrune Cloak!

This cloak is a highly scripted cloak that is max-light and max-deep. But let me tell you what the analyze has to say about it:

You analyze your trollhide cloak and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This trollhide cloak is designed to work in conjunction with a Moonshard Pendant that houses a Legendary Bloodrune.

If you have the Troll-king Legendary Bloodrune active in your Moonshard Pendant, then you will receive special messaging when you use the following verbs:

Blink, Chuckle, Get, Glance, Pinch, Point, Preen, Pull, Put, Rub, Scratch, Shake, Snap, Stretch, Thump, Wave.

If you do not have a corresponding Bloodrune active, then you will get generic messaging for the above verbs.

This trollhide cloak may have a long or show description, but its adjective should never change.

Lastly, a gristled trollhide cloak must only ever be a cloak-worn item.

You can tell that the cloak is as light as it can get and that its pockets could not possibly get any deeper.

But now that the capability/system exists, should it come to pass that there are additional Bloodrunes (or more ways to get them), then more people could take benefit from it….

That is really neat if really specialized. Now we just need some that work with the mystic bloodrunes. 😀

Who is ready for a Yeti?

Default messaging is the same for all types, so I’m not going to repeat that.

The analyze:

You analyze your black fur cloak and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This black fur cloak is designed to work in conjunction with a Moonshard Pendant that houses a Legendary Bloodrune.

If you have the Black Yeti Legendary Bloodrune active in your Moonshard Pendant, then you will receive special messaging when you use the following verbs:

Blink, Chuckle, Get, Glance, Pinch, Point, Preen, Pull, Put, Rub, Scratch, Shake, Snap, Stretch, Thump, Wave.

If you do not have a corresponding Bloodrune active, then you will get generic messaging for the above verbs.

This black fur cloak may have a long or show description, but its adjective should never change and because it is meant for a black yeti, its color can never be anything but black.

Lastly, a shaggy black fur cloak must only ever be a cloak-worn item.

You can tell that the cloak is as light as it can get and that its pockets could not possibly get any deeper.

Is there any chance these can get re-worked?

I managed to find the one in Plat literally my 7th dig, however I’m afraid the execution is a little off.

These items, while unique, still require another unique hard to find item. If the item is never found, the cloaks are pretty much just your run of the mill, scripted generically cloak….and as a T6, is meh.

Least with the bloodrune in itself, it does what it is intended for, however this cloak relies on the owner to get struck by lightning twice. Once to find the cloak, another to find the rune or someone who finds the rune willing to sell/trade it etc.

Instead, these cloaks would have been nicer if they were either a blank cloak of sorts, that would attune to the first legendary rune the bearer had or could somehow cycle between all the legendary rune types and if you had any, would work with it

Or trade, or outright buy/sell, or (since you mention Plat) have a stranger walk up and hand you theirs (as I have heard of happening), or….
