Just a 0.13a bug?

CloakBug013a.png I found a janus-headed randart. The +6 dam is great. But I'm feeling badly ridiculed by a randart that names itself Cloak of darkness without delivering a cloak of darkness functionality (evokable invisibility). Either this is just a small bug to be fixed immediately before the official 0.13 release day 11 octobre. Or it is another example of very sinister developer's mood. No, you can't call that humor, not even sarcasm. It feels like being duped. -- Bwijn (talk) 15:08, 29 September 2013 (CEST)

I'd much rather have that than a cloak of darkness. They're almost always absolute junk, since most stabbers start with invisibility, the property isn't incredibly useful for other characters, and it takes a ton of Evo to get the cloak reliable. That cloak would be useful to anyone who can wear it.
Oh, it's not an intentional thing, by the way. "Darkness" is just a randart name that can apply to any type of randart. And of course, randart armour never has any mundane brands (i.e. that's why you never see any randart boots of running or cloaks of preservation). -Ion frigate (talk) 22:11, 29 September 2013 (CEST)
