Could you put the coat on pigs and then slaughter them to charge it?
Now, there are few grammar issues you might want to clear up.
"When the wearer takes damage from a piercing, slashing, or hacking weapons the number of hitpoints the wearer loses are added to the cloak's hitpoints as long as that does not take the cloak above it's maximum (providing the wearer does have blood sorry warforged etc.)."
I'd break that into a couple of sentences with one specifically intended to screen out beings without blood. The provision there simply does not fit as part of the current sentence. Go to Comment
Obviously, feel free to tailor to your uses. Here's what I had in mind: When it's fully charged, the wearer looks like they just went for a bath in a river of blood. As it looses charges, the points of impact are 'dried' and become the original brown color. So yes, I agree with your statement that the wearer of a slightly charged blood cloak would look like a crazed murderer with just a few splatters. If the wearer receives a cut, his own blood makes a big red spot on the cloak at the point of the hit just like blood would spread in normal clothes.
