Gaze of the Black Prince buff incoming

Black Prince

A few weeks ago when 5.4.8 patch was on PTR we wrote about the Gaze of the Black Prince buff that will help players complete their Legendary cloak quest chain faster. At first we believed that this buff will be available only for your alts, if your main already has the legendary cloak, but looks like everyone will benefit from it.

Basically you’ll get your cloak twice as fast. The reputation gain with the Black Prince will increase with 100% and the drop rates of Sigils and Runestones will be higher as well.


The gaze of the Black Prince had been both blessing and curse to her once upon a time. Her journey long and arduous, the blood of the enemy stained her boots. Now she stood on the corpse of the vanquished Fire God – Ordos – her cloak whipping about her frame and victory beating within her heart. Her journey was at an end. But as with any end, there is always another beginning ‘round the bend.

To be legendary, one must obtain– a truly legendary cloak. What hero is hero without one? To help you on your danger fraught quest, the infamous Black Prince would grant you a boon to help make the journey toward adorning your own cloak a little easier. Will you follow in the footsteps of heroes that have come before and brave the challenge?

Beginning Tuesday, June 17 at 9:00 a.m. (CEST), through Monday, June 30 at 9:00 a.m. (CEST), we’ll be applying the Gaze of the Black Prince buff which will increase the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It will also increase the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line including: the Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, or Titan Runestones.
