Drape of Shame ilvl conversion

Post#1 » Thu Feb 09, 2017 5:41 pm

To find out the ilvl value of the bonus on Drape of shame, create this macro:

/script local lvl=0; local int=GetSpellBonusDamage(4)*GetCritChance()/1000; while true do int=int-9.44-lvl*0.474; if int>0 then lvl=lvl+1; else print("The ilevel value of DoS Equip effect is:", lvl); break; end end

Fair warning, this WILL disable DBM, so run it on farm content or the end of a fight.

Came out to 64 ilvl for me effectively making it a 919 cape.

Napkin math:

I have approx 45k Int and 40% crit rate.

10% bonus healing on 40% crit rate = (100% + 100% (for crit)) * .1 * .4 = 8% bonus healing

8% bonus healing at 45k int = 3600 Int

That's not assuming that critical heals have a higher chance to overheal (and thus waste effectiveness) and it does not factor in the secondary stats of a higher ilvl cape.

Still, since my tier cloak has haste, I'll stick to drape of shame for a while. Too bad it hurts my equipped ilvl but I'll keep doing nightbane runs for a chance at a forged cloak and I can always have a higher lvl offspec cloak sitting in my bags to boost my ilvl.
