Cloak value increases exponentially since Passive AA patch.

Now that Ancient Flames is a passive AA effect unlocked by clicking this cloak. You can simply unattune it and pass it around all of your characters for permanent overhaste. Think of it as a key. This adds much more value. I am now seeing cloaks selling within minutes at 2 million pp. Price range actually exceeds 4 million again.

year 1 I didn't get a cloak. only killed about 160 mobs. between the ks-ing and the crowding and the difficulty of the mobs, I didn't do too much in zone.
year 2 I got one. after 450 kills of bats. I wanted the collectibles and felt lucky to get the cloak. it was still difficult solo for my rogue, but if I was not careless I was fine.
year 3. I expected to see a lot of auto bot groups. thankfully ragefire and lockjaw took them all. I got 3 cloaks, but it took me 476 kills, 333 kills and 1385 kills. Thanks to parser program that counted all the kills easily. the zone is empty in the early morning. good luck and enjoy it.
NEC worthy?

I'm a 90 NEC and this is definitely level-appropriate. I do however already use a 43% haste belt so finding another belt with a good focus and not haste would probably not happen. However, I'm getting up there in the end-game, started camping bosses once I got my j5, and finding groups and getting xp 90+ are actually fairly easy (which is almost far fetched to say on Zek Server). Needless to say , this piece has great stats and although I 1:1 only in a blue moon (but am passionate about getting that ability back; aggro-kiting or root/ doting is the worst) . Really, I want to know if there's some superior BACK piece that a NEC will get in the latter Levels; something with a necessary focus , etc.

So , Is this Necromancer worthy if you 1:1?

So can confirm it off a lava beetle, fire giant, sonic bat, and greater kobold shaman, but honestly anything in the zone can drop this. Further, no monster ever has this cloak while alive. Basically as I understand it, each time a mob dies, it has a chance to get this cloak added to its loot table. So basically you are doing a pull on a slot machine every kill, so your best odds are just to kill as many as possible to get more pulls on that slot machine. Also, this means there is no sense griefing over mobs from one camp or another, as long as you can constantly kill mobs, your chances are not reduced in any way. Is the same deal with Crested Mistmoore ring, good luck slot pulling everyone! Hit the jackpot 7 times so far this year with just my box team.

Mobs do not get loot when they are killed. They get it when they spawn. As is plainly obvious when mobs have weapons (that are visible), haste items that increase their DPS, or in the case of this cloak, another attribute which gives away which mobs have the item.

It's there in the screenshot.

This is true at least 99 % of the time, there are items that don't get added until later though, or may get added during the fight. The devs have been getting more and more generous about sharing how the game operates over the last couple years, is worth scouring through the boards sometime :) The AC explained is particularly good (and long and confusing, lol).

60 ish hrs for me to get mine this year. Farmed a little bit of everything. Dropped from a random lava duct crawler in the Stone Spider room.

On a plus note, the AA wasn't half bad for my box team alts ( main is capped ).
Need to include giants on the drop list

I've looted 3 cloaks now. 2 last year and 1 this year, all off the fire giants in the zone. Two warriors and a wizard. Last year we killed 1117 giants and scored two cloaks. I think we were extremely luck. Both went to mains. This year we looted a cloak after 382 giant kills - again I think we (my son and I) were lucky. I don't know if this info helps or not, I just happen to keep track of the kills by the number of throwing boulders they drop, they almost always drop one. Good luck!

So if at 200% haste, this would take you to 217%?

is not so rare if you are a caster. I know of 2 of them that got multiple drops already soloing. I am a tank and I have been camping it for the last 2 weeks about 2 hours a night and I have yet to see one drop....I wish they would have made it no drop but I see Sony working it here. Make it rare and tradeable so people can trade it for Kronos! nice!

I been camping bugs and bats for almost 20 hours of game time over the course of two days and haven't seen a single drop. I think they mate it a bit too rare.

Too rare? You are lucky that it is available at all. It's HoF T4 RAID quality item, with the best overhaste clicky in the game, and it's available to group content. Why should it be easy to get??? /boggle

Seems to be about a 1-500 to 1-1000 drop..but I'm just guessing based upon the gazillion hours I've spent camping these for my main and wife's characters.

They need to change these to NO DROP to stop the plat farmers being obnoxious. Then peeps that want them can camp it themselves

Five hours of killing in Lava Duct Crawler room with a three box team netted one. Almost constant killing, some down time between spawns and all the other groups around sniping some here and there.
