Dwarf with the Cloak

While some capes provide more fire resistance, the Onyxia Scale Cloak is essential for most of the bosses in Blackwing Lair since this cloak prevents [Shadow Flame] from engulfing the target (the DoT after Shadow Flame hits).


Onyxia Scale Cloak is crafted with Leatherworking (300); taught by Major Mattingly, after having turned the  [Head of Onyxia] over to him.

1-4 Scales of Onyxia drop when Onyxia is skinned. 315 skinning was required to skin her, which necessitated at least two out of three of  [Pip's Skinner],  [Zulian Slicer], and +5 skinning enchanted gloves before the Burning Crusade expansion was released. Although Onyxia was changed to a level 80 encounter with Patch 3.2.2, she still can be skinned to acquire Scales.
