some math

maybe. but i think its a buff like clr devotion.
anyways im sitting here doing math on this robe modifyer...cire if fire hits 4070 and this "mods" dmg up 2238.5 w/ make the spell hit 6308.5 for 850
and i think criticals can go up to 400% w/don AA this robe will give core of fire(4070+((55%)2238))x4=25232 critical that makes this robe to me very very nice

that math isn't accurate, the focus is always applied after the critical multiplier for one..

should be more like ((base*multiplier)+ (base*foci))
Makes that around 15771 at the time of the post above without a fire increasing familiar

still a nice focus, and an even better robe

If you guys noticed it not ALL fire nukes the effect is Ancient:core fire only, BUT still love this robe, it wont wrk with the DoD fire spell unless they change it again

Actually, if you look the robe up on Magelo, it's much improved over the preliminary version they have posted here. I'm assuming they'll update this eventually, but at the time I write this there's no regen/mana regen/shielding listed...also, the Focus Effect isn't listed.

The added stats should include the following:
Regen +10,
Mana Regen +5
Avoidance: 25
Shielding +2%
DoT Shielding +6%

Also, the Focus Effect is-
"Vangl's Fire"
~Increase Spell Damage by 55%
~Limit: Spell(Ancient: Core Fire allowed)

It's not just Wizards, though, so don't think they're being neglected. As of 21 April 2005, all Tier 2 silk is listed in incomplete form on Allakhazam (with the exception of Necromancers, which aren't listed at all).

[Edit: When I say "Tier 2 silk", I'm referring specifically to the Chest pieces]

How can you say this is dissapointing? Just the stats alone i'd love to have on a robe. + the fact that there is 55% on fire nukes AND a clicky spell haste buff of 25%. In Addition too all the modifiers. You must know absolutely nothing about Everquest if you consider this piece of armor disapointing. Do some research before you just randomly post something like this next time.

Funny that you should flame him for knowing nothing about everquest, when it's you that seems to be unaware that they recently upgraded this item, and that previously it had almost none of the mods/effects that it does now.

I remember seeing the Anguish cleric BP, prior to the upgrade, and thinking hmm, nice AC/hp, but why no effects, and only one mod? Apparently enough people complained, so they fixed it.

Look at the lucy info. The effects went live 4/20/05. That guy posted on 4/1/05.

And the clicky effect is so worthless, as spell haste is capped... so with spell haste AAs, and the cleric spell haste... you get next to no haste increase from it
