- CRIT BOOST: 30% - 50% more damage on CRIT attacks
- 100 - 200% Damage increase against stunned
- [EVOLVED] 10 - 20% STUN chance on Tag-In
Cloak's damage increase against stunned works with:
It doesn't work with:
- Super Moves
- Batgirl/Cassandra Cain's 25% current health damage on tag in
- Damage over time effects
- Aquaman/Prime's Atlantean Hero
It is unconfirmed, but it is likely that Cloak of Destiny's stun stacks multiplicatively with other sources of tag-in stun, such as the Fourth World Godly Helmet and Bane/Luchador's passive, as it is possible to see multiple 1 damage hits from the stuns. That means two sources of 20% tag in stun results in 36% stun chance on tag in, rather than 40%.
Elseworld Flash's passive, when activated, will cause him to break free from stuns and allow him to react, but he is still counted as stunned for the purpose of the Cloak's damage amplification.
A stun will wear off immediately after you stop using a basic combo or a special. If you hit the stunned character once with a basic attack and then use a special, the special's damage will not be boosted even if they are still unable to react yet. If you continue the basic combo, the whole combo will gain the damage boost, even if the stun was about the wear off (particularly of note if stunning with a character and utilizing the cloak on another character while you need to wait a couple seconds before you can tag in), and even long ones like those of The Arkham Knight, with one exception: the boost will wear off mid-combo for The Flash/Metahuman's triple speed combos. Only the first two hits of Reverse Flash's "infinite combo" would be boosted, as the next hits are technically a new combo.
While the tag in stun may appear very similar to Bane/Luchador's passive (albeit with a much lower chance of activation) Cloak of Destiny's stun has a couple of significant differences. It can be blocked. However, gear stuns are activated faster than Luchador Bane's stun, making it impossible to react to (while there is a very short time to react by using a special when Bane tags in if you are anticipating him, which negates his stun). This higher speed can also determine whether the stun will miss in some cases: if another character scores a knockdown blow, and then a character with Cloak of Destiny or Luchdor Bane tags in, the stun can only hit if they are being knocked down, and it would miss if they are getting up.
The Cloak of Destiny is often regarded as the most powerful piece of gear ever released on Injustice Mobile. The damage increase against stunned is simply huge, and it works with Batgirl's visual stun at the beginning of her special 1. Coupled with her own crit boost gear and Batgirl/Cassandra Cain's high base damage allows her to deal truly ridiculous amounts of damage (although her own passive will negate the tag-in stun, giving her opponent a moment to react).
Using a strong special 2 to knock out the previous character can often protect you against the incoming stun as you are invulnerable during the special animation. Green Lantern/Red Son offers all Red Sons immunity to stun (although Batgirl's stun will still work) and crits, making him very strong against Cloak of Destiny. Aquaman/Regime's Super Move can drain all power from tagged-out opponents, reducing the Cloak's threat.
The Cloak of Destiny is the first piece of gear to offer non-character-specific crit boost.
