There has been a debate in the enchanter community for as long as I can remember on the true effect of CHA. I side on the "CHA is *extremely* important for enchanters, but not very important for other pure casters" side although I have not decided about necros yet. Therefore; I would go for the BCR over the CR for an enchanter and the CR for other pure casters.

However; I am starting to believe what I was once told, that CHA over 190 for enchanters is basically wasted. Oh well, my enchantress has a better robe now anyway.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 11 2003 at 1:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) CHA for an enchanter helps mez and charm stick therefore you would like a high CHA alongside a high INT. But for a nec a negative CHA helps fears stick, so you want a low CHA. Hope this helps.

Get your damn facts straight, negative cha DOES NOT HELP FEAR AT ALL! It never has, never will.

Loot change on the Queen?
# May 05 2002 at 5:59 PM Rating: Decent
I used to hunt CC all the time through my 30's and 40's and I remember the Queen used to spawn so many times that we would let the robes rot because they're lore and everyone in the group would have one.
Went in there the other night and she spawned twice in 4 hours, neither time did she drop the robe just the MotQ. Anyone know if her spawnrate and drop rates been changed ?
These are CHEAP now

Wow these robes are really nice stat-wise and the price is WAY down! I bought one yesterday for my lvl 12 wizzy for 250pp...that's in EC on Bristlebane. Between this and the Stein of Moggok you can outfit a new INT caster for 400pp!
RE: These are CHEAP now
# Feb 19 2003 at 12:02 AM Rating: Decent
I've had this robe for a while and The Stein even longer I made an Erudite Enchanter and for about 2 weeks I played like crazy to get him to level 12 so he could get the Illusion Dark Elf spell and when he did I got this Stein No problem I didn't have to Pay I just quested it My Wizzy was about level 6 then and now he's level 32 and that was a few months ago plus with the Crystalline robes it's great and also the since I'm a ngome I have one of the best beginning casters quests in the game I think personally it's the Spellbook of the Eldritch Intitiate with great stats including 5 int with the book the robe and the stein that's already 21 int and only 3 items pretty good if I do say so myself

I just bought one last night on Thoxule Pales for 140pp for my 13 mag. Nice robe.
RE: These are CHEAP now
# Jul 17 2002 at 4:39 PM Rating: Decent
It all depends on server... If your wise and play your cards you can still get 600pp for these in EC on Bertoxx. While as stein of maggok can be obtained for 200pp, Supply and demand I guess
# Feb 25 2002 at 6:55 AM Rating: Decent
Its all about access to the item. The stats on this are nice, but it is easily obtained. I was there and solo'd the queen once(no drop). Then was joined by a 49 cleric and we got pretty bored as it was easy for us to keep the room and the hall clear.
Worth more

RE: Worth more
# Apr 24 2002 at 10:51 AM Rating: Decent
the reason the SMR is so expensive is because of many reasons:

1. Two words: Enchanter Epic
2. Two words: Rogue Epic
3. One word: Hole
4. high level RARE mob
5. RARE drop from that high level RARE mob

if you do get your hands on one somehow though, and are not a rogue or an enchanter, either wear it cuz it looks nice, or wait till some poor chanter or rogue is working on their epic and wants to buy one for 20k =P~

RE: Worth more
# Jan 04 2003 at 2:40 AM Rating: Decent
SMR drops in Lower Guk though lol, not the Hole.
RE: Worth more
# Mar 21 2002 at 7:27 AM Rating: Good
Speaking only for the Blackened Crystaline Robe...
Reason for higher cost on that one is the fact it also has charisma(highly sought by chanters).
As for the other robes... /shrug

I own the BCR and proudly too ) Took me a week as a 35,36,35again, woot 36chanter :/ , Finally a BCR )

So I guess i would pay about 1kpp for it but no more.

oh and the reason this is around 500pp is the fact that little younglings shouldnt be able to afford it ) IMHO any item should sell for 20x what the minimum lvl is to kill said mob )
i.e.: Queen is lvl 40 = 800pp. maybe this should be a basis for things huh? NAH never happen people are to greedy lol

Nowalls is right, you have to take into account WHEN the prices were entered. Note that the higher values typically are listed early on, when the item is rare. If you look at the pricing data, it would appear that if you wanted to sell the robe quick you'd need to price somewhere around 6-800 pp.
RE: Whats wrong with you all !!
# Aug 13 2001 at 9:37 PM Rating: Decent
If you go in and look at the pricing data, there are several around 4-5k which brings up the average. These were mostly all posted around the time when Velious first came out. Most of the latest prices for it are in the 700-1300 pp range, which is about right. As more of these are looted, the prices will drop. I bought mine for 900 pp, and wouldn't sell it for anything right now. Once I get my Shining Metallic Robe (crosses fingers), I'll sell it.

better than bcr?
# Jul 14 2001 at 2:07 PM Rating: Default
why is bcr worth twice as much as this when this has better stats? im not a caster so plz dont yell at me
RE: better than bcr?
# Feb 02 2002 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
And the BCR is a lot harder to get, ultra rare off herbalist, usually have to kill the queen dracnia to get it.

Value of robe
# Jun 11 2001 at 6:00 AM Rating: Default
The robe is worth 1k now, however last time i was down there the queen wasnt spawning like she normally does, took us 4 hours till she and not her PH popped, so the value may increase.
Get this robe!
# Jun 11 2001 at 5:58 AM Rating: Default
This is a great robe and quite easy to get, if you can get a group in there 40s and break and hold the room the robe is yours, the queen drops it everytime.
This can take the place of your future SMR or planes armor till you get that this is the robe you want.
Great INT bonus, and good solid resitances, everything the player wants.
RE: Get this robe!
# Dec 03 2001 at 10:58 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, a good group of mid 30's can do...doubt a group of low 30's though. Have spent about 24 hours in that room. Even with group of 40's the room can be tough to break (easy to hold though). Level 51 or so and higher can single pull and break easily. And no the Queen does NOT drop robe every time. I have killed her 8 times and she had robe 4 times. Just my 2 cp.

if you ask me , there is no real decent loot that spawn next to her. without wis or int it is just weighing you down . it is best to get good charisma items on you when you sell the loot from there , or auction in the outsideing zone i hear that they sell for alot compared to the robe.

ok, i hear that this robe isnt much better than the o robe (what i have now). it looks great, and the stats are somthing i could be a bit more proud of. not much more, but nevertheless i wouldd give ANYTHING for this robe. kinda. at lvl 29 (was 30 earlier today, died cause damn spider near fv could see invis) its not too easy to come along with 10k, but i can get maybe 1k fighting giants for now. im willing to trade o robe and maybe 1k or 2k if i ever get that much, is that enough?

If you can kill Giants you should be able to come up with some Velious stuff to sell/trade to get this robe. Id come up with about 5kpp worth of stuff if you are planning on trading.

NOT 9600pp!! Great robe for MAG
# Feb 22 2001 at 5:35 PM Rating: Decent
This robe simply does not go for this. Depending on where you are, you can get this robe for around 3500pp. If you can somehow make it to Crystal Caverns, bring 2kpp and I can guarantee you will walk out with the robe. The stats are pretty good considering the looks of the robe too. Other than the Froglock Bonecasters robe, Robe of melding auras, Tolapumj's Robe and Crimson Robe of Alendine (these are all quite pricey too) it is also really the only robe to wear for mags until they can loot the no drop ones. The Advisor and Shining Metallic are probably not bad buys either but they just dont look as good with weaker stats for the Advisor and a higher price for the other. Oh well hope I helped someone.
