for how many ppl would this robe be an upgrade? I think for lots, and when you get in a lvl 40-55 group and take the mob down it's a huge victory and a big bonus. LoY was certainly a set of zones with grouping in mind, not just for solocamping. Yes if you want to solo the mob you probably have to be around 60 yourself, but with a decent group, it's certainly attainable at lower lvls. And the robe on it's own is just great, not awesome but nonetheless great and for a lot of intcasters definately an update till they can obtain better.
And you better get used to it, the ratio moblvl vs reward is most likely getting worse than bad so that it will take a lot of power to take certain mobs down. Nowhere in the game is stated that the endgame should be soloable and that there will be equipment to take bossmobs of planes solo or with a single group.
Ever thought that for a long time bronze armor was ACE up to lvl 40?
Times have changed and sadly the attitude as well.

Gomers-this robe blows for dropping off a lvl 60 mob. end of argument
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 04 2003 at 2:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I might use this on my new froggie till he gets to 20 or so when he will need a real robe with some actual stats. At 55 you can get much better robes from Hate, Kael, Tov, Umbral, etc. Don't think much thought went into the stats on this one. Not really worth going after a level 60 to get a sub-level 45 robe.

These kind of posts really get me. I want to know why anyone who is 55+ should have a robe from Hate, Kael, ToV, or Umbral. When you ding 55 is a robe put in your inventory? Is there a place you can go where they hand out free robes? This is robe is good. Not the best, but it certainly is not junk. And I wore a Crystalline Robe up until level 50... I would gladly wear one of these even though I've upgraded since then. Not everyone is rich and has access to the end game zones. 10 AC is useless? Since when is AC of any kind useless? And even if it was 100 AC, it won't matter because as a chanter you will still go down in a few hits. HP is never useless. 40 mana may only be one stun, but it is one more stun than you would have. The Hate robe has 13 INT... whoopee. This isn't the Hate robe, nor does it have anything to do with the Hate robe. Resists of any kind are not to be knocked. Please think through what you are about to post before you post it.

not only that, but that poster doesnt do his math very well, 13int vs 8int 40 mana, you get 5 mana per point of intel so that 40 mana equals 8 intel so you could call this a 16int robe with no mana, so it could in theory be a better robe but people never look beyond the raw stats before they start calling things junk.

Up to 200, 1 int is worth more than 5 mana.

There are far better robes available at < 45, with less effort at those levels than this one at 50+. Velious quest robes, LoY tradeskill robes, etc.

There are tradeable robes that are twice as good as this one. Sure, they cost a decent chunk of plat, but not anything out of range of even a semi-casual solo player at level 50+.

This is my main character, so I don't have a level 60+ to farm with, I don't do bazaar trading for cash, I have spent 0 game time farming, and I had a Robe of the Ethereal (virtually identical to this one) before level 40.

Sure, this might have been an uber level 50 robe pre-Kunark. It would still have probably been a l33t level 55ish robe pre-Velious. And bicycles used to be luxury items too; now they're kids toys.
