Description

First and foremost there is a prerequisite and that is you have to pick the fiend as your patron. All right make sense right! The description reads as followed.

As a bonus action, you can conjure a swarm of buzzing flies around you. The swarm grants you advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) checks but disadvantage on all other Charisma checks. In addition, a creature that starts its turn within 5 feet of you takes poison damage equal to your Charisma modifier. You can dismiss the swarm with another bonus action.

If you haven’t guessed it this is what cloak of flies started as, pretty cool! The biggest difference is between the two, the fiend patron part and you can do a cloak of baalzebul at any time whereas cloak of the flies it’s once on per short or long rest. In any case let’s take a look at the overview and break this down. You may also like to read this cloak of bat 5e.
